      Thomas Y. BOSTON.

      In tracing back the ancestors of the Boston family, the great grandfatherof Thomas Y. Boston is supposed to have been born in Germany and upon hisarrival on American Shores settled in Virginia where his son, James EwellBoston, the grandfather of Thomas Y., was born, reared and married. Hebecame one of the pioneers of Greene County, Ky., and there spent theremainder of his days in tilling the soil and fighting the Indians andthe British in the War of 1812, in which he took a prominent part. Hisson, James Boston, was born in Virginia, prior to their removal westward,and on Blue Grass soil he received his rearing and such education ascould be had at that day, which was by no means of the best. He wasmarried there to Miss Biddy Slinker, who was also born in the OldDominion and was taken by her parents to Kentucky when she was a child.After their marriage they resided for some time in Greene County, afterwhich they moved to Hart County and from there came by wagon to GreeneCounty, Mo., in 1856, locating on a small partially-improved farm one andone-half miles west of Cave Springs, where they spent the rest of theirlives. Mr. Boston died in 1887 and Mrs. Boston in 1871, both having forsome time been members in good standing of the Christian Church. Mr.Boston was a life-long farmer and being industrious and intelligent, heaccumulated a comfortable competency, amply sufficient to meet all therequirements of himself and family.

      He was a Republican in politics, but was quite conservative in his views.The maternal grandfather of the subject of this sketch, ChristopherSlinker, died in Metcalf County, Ky., in 1876, having been a farmer andmechanic by occupation. He was of English descent and he and his wife,who also died in Kentucky, became the parents of five children: Murphy,who died in Hart County, Ky.; Lemuel, who also died there; Biddy (Mrs.Boston); Amaryllis, wife of Edmund Galloway; Fannie, who died inKentucky. Mr. Thomas Y. Boston received such education and rearing asusually falls to the lot of the youth reared on a pioneer farm. Duringthe warm months his days were spent in falling timber and in general farmwork, but at the age of seventeen years, in 1853, his birth havingoccurred in Hart County, Ky., June 24, 1836, he left home to make his ownway in the world and went to Clinton County, Mo., where he spent threeyears working on a farm. In 1857 he returned to Greene County and beganfarming in Cass Township, and here, in 1861, he married Nancy, daughterof William and Matilda Killingsworth, who were natives of North Carolinaand Tennessee, respectively. The father was taken by his parents toTennessee in his youth, where he lived until 1839, when be came by oxteam with his family to Greene County, Mo., being nearly two months onthe road. He located on what is now Section 1, Boone Township, thecountry at that time being rough prairie land, and here he made a finefarm on which he contentedly spent the rest of his days, dying in 1866,and his widow in 1886, both having been members of the Baptist Church ofmany years standing. Mr. Killingsworth was at one time sheriff of MonroeCounty, Tenn.

      James McClure, the father of Mrs. Killingsworth, came to Polk County,Mo., from Tennessee in 1839, and here died prior to the Civil War. To Mr.and Mrs. Killingsworth a family of twelve children were given: James, afarmer of the county; Margaret Ann, the deceased wife of WilliamHamilton; William A. John (deceased); Mary, widow of Hughey Gilmore, ofDade County; Alfred, of Texas; Bennett, of this county; Nancy (Mrs.Boston); Robert, of this county; Oliver, also a farmer of Greene County,and two children that died in infancy. Mr. Thomas Y. Boston lived on theold home farm until 1864 when he removed to his present farm, purchasing240 acres, which he has succeeded in increasing to 1,247 acres, but hasgiven considerable to his children, and now has 821 acres in differentfarms, all in Cass Township. He received a small inheritance from hisfather's estate, but the bulk of his property has been acquired throughhis own efforts. His land is some of the finest and most productive inthe county, and it is handsomely and substantially improved withexcellent buildings. He is a prominent member of Nicholas Lodge, No. 435of the A. F. & A. M. at Willard, and he and his wife have been members ofthe Cumberland Presbyterian Church for thirty years. Mr. Boston, is oneof the following children: Abner, who died young in Kentucky; Mary, wifeof Hayden Taylor, of Lebanon, Mo.; Reuben, of Oklahoma; William, ofOregon; Thomas Y.; Elizabeth, wife of S. P. Collins, of Cedar County;James, of Cedar County; Martha, who is the deceased wife of John Kime;Emily, wife of David Elam: George, of Oklahoma, and Sarah Ann, who diedin 1862.
