PROMINENT CITIZENS OF BOONE COUNTY

So many citizens, in the generations that have gone by, have taken their part in making Boone County what it is, that it is very hard to include them all and to measure with any degree of precision the space to which the services of each entitle them. In order that the names of the generation which has just passed may be included we have taken from the history of Boone County , published in 1877, the most important facts shown in the lists given in the back of that work. Some of these citizens have passed to the great beyond and some are still with us. many of them being prominent and active citizens. There are doubtless others who are not mentioned but who should be, and we have endeavored in this list and in the matter given in the foregoing part. of the history, to mention as many as space will permit of those who have helped in building up the community
