Hugh M. BOSWELL appears in the 1860 census in Fayetteville with Louisa’s father, George RILEY.
Family tradition says he was part CHEROKEE and left Fayetteville during the Civil War because he was a Union sympathizer.He told later censuses that his parents were born in Virginia.
He later lived in Jefferson County Iowa, and Greene County, Missouri and died sometime after 1880, maybe in Missouri.
Does anyone know where Hugh BOSWELL came from?
