Boon, James M. (4 NOV 1845 – 23 Jul 1916)

James M. Boon died on Sunday at his home in town Weston after an illness of many months’ duration and in his passing another of the earlier settlers of lower Clark County has gone to his reward. Mr. Boon came to Clark County 46 years ago and during that time had all the varied experiences of pioneer and wood life before hewing a home out of the woods and settling down to farming. He was born in Ireland on Nov. 4, 1845, and came to this county from Canada. He was married to Louise Dodge and is survived by his widow and three sons.

Mr. Boon was a man of ability and high integrity and was industrious at all times and honorable in his business dealings and as a result his long sickness and death was a matter of very sincere regret to all his numerous friends.

He was laid to rest on Tuesday. Services being conducted at the Christie church and interment being made in the Neillsville Cemetery,
