They are my brick Wall: Richard according to 1860 Census, Giles Co. TN. was born 1825, TN. and Nancy was born 1825, TN. some people think that he is the same Richard Boon that married Lucy Willet,of KY. I do not. the 1860 census is the only census I can find him in family stories say that when their son John Was old enough to take care of his mother that Richard eloped with another woman and went to east Tn. and had another son, Isreal. another storie said they were Killed and scalped by Indians. ? the last I seen of Nancy she was in the 1880 census living with her daughter Sarah E. Swinney, next door to her son John W.Boon and was referred to as a Lunatic. I was told by my Father's Cousin Geneva, that The family put her in a institution, I have looked for one, and have been told that instead of a Instition she would have been placed in a Poor Farm that was supported by the County, I need to have help so if anyone knows the truth and Parents of both Richard and Nancy I would greatly appreciate it . Thank You. JB.
