Boon - Boone

The  Shelbyville  Daily  Democrat
May 19, 1899
Page 1
          The Democrat  received a pleasant call to-day from its old friend, Mr. Benj. Boon, of Moral township.  Mr. Boon was born on what is now known as the Hill farm, three miles west of Shelbyville, in 1830.  With the exception of serving in the Mexican war one year and of residing in Illinois five years, Mr. Boon has spent his life in Shelby county.  He received as a subscriber, a copy of the first issue of  The Shelby Democrat  and is yet a subscriber to the paper.  Mr. Boon is a good democrat and understands the Shelby county situation exactly.
