bullet  Research Notes:

Nathan Richard Boone:
Accoording to Mike Baker of Wisc he is a descendant of Nathan through another wife Arilla Parsons, by with he had 6 children. Lewis C. Boone, Emma Boone, Aristides Boone, Clara Boone, Millie Boone, and Steven Boone.
According to the history of his family as handed down, Nathan was a volunteer during the Civil War and was never heard from again. Someone from the family must have heard from him because Jesse Boone in his research has located a copy of a receipt signed by Nathan that he recieved a small sum of money from the estate of Lewis Boone, dated 1882. So the question is "did Nathan divorce Arilla Parsons or just left her."?
"Memories of Pioneer Days in Greenwood"
Lewis C. (Cask) Boone: Birth 1853
"According to Mr. Boone, he and his family moved to this community settling in Greenwood township when he was 12 years old. His father saw service in the Civil War. It is not known whether the older Boone was killed, wounded or lost during the battle. At any rate no word has ever been heard from him since his enlistment."
More on Lewis C Boone:
".......enlisted for service in Chicago. He enlisted to fight the Indians. He related in brief the historical "Last Stand of Custer". It seems that the calvary had left Cook City, and had been out for over 15 days. A part of the company was sent to the pack train for food and they ran into Indians. It was here that Custer made his last stand against the Indian braves. "I was on duty that day in March, stationed about 15 miles from the massacre. The entire company was wiped out. But later on we got a number of those Indians."
