He was a son of Hon. Homer and Amarillas (Warner) Boardman of New Milford, CT. He and Sophia Hine married March 7, 1811 in New Milford. He was a merchant, but was called to the clergy and was ordained February 1818 at the Congregational Church at New Preston, CT where he served for 12 years. He received an honorary degree from Yale University in 1819 as a 'distinguished member of the clergy.' After leaving New Preston and before going to Youngstown, Ohio, he preached at New Haven and Westport, CT, and as agent for the Western Reserve College. He was installed as pastor at Youngstown Presbyterian Church, August 6, 1839, where he stayed for 16 years (1839-1854). His wife died in 1851 and he, in poor health, moved to Monroe, Wisconsin in 1854 to live with his daughter Orinda and her husband Samuel Baxter McEwen. He continued to preach there at a remnant Presbyterian church for 2 more years. "Yet the attachment between himself and the congregation at Youngstown continued til his death. He spent the whole of last winter among them and returned to Monroe about three months ago...and the Master called him home. His death was peaceful, happy and glorious." (excerpt obituary from Monroe (Wisconsin) Sentinel August 29, 1860). His body was taken to Youngstown for burial, next to his wife Sophia.
