David Crockett Boone was born March 29, 1846 in Daviess County, Ky. He married on July 8, 1873 in Marshall, Texas to Molly (Mary) Cooley. She was born 1846 in Virginia and died July 1, 1887 at Greenville, Texas. There is a reference in a family history book to an article on July 15, 1887 in the Fort Worth Daily Gazette about her death. They did not have any children. He served in the 15th Arkansas (Northwest) Infantry, Confederate States of America, along with his brother, Col. Squire Boone. In his obituary in the Santa Anna News of January 1911, it says he returned to Van Horn "a few months ago to become editor of the Chronicle." So it is likely he was not listed in the 1910 Census of Van Horn.
