One of the Forsyth Scouts, he was with Jack Peate and missed the battle of Beecher Island, but was with the relief column.
March 24, 1904
Death claimed another pioneer of this city and central Kansas Saturday [March 19] in the person of Uncle Tommy Boyle. Mr. Boyle has been a sufferer with paralysis for several years, and this is what caused his death. He was 77 years old. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon from the residence, conducted by Rev. O.H. Holter of the M.E. church, and the remains were interred in the Lincoln Cemetery.
Mr. Boyle leaves a wife; one son, George, in California; and three daughters, Mrs. John Hunter, Mrs. Al Guyer and Mrs. Will Patterson, all of this county, to mourn his death.
He was a pioneer in the Saline Valley of central Kansas. He was probably one of the first white men to enter Lincoln County. He was in many of the Indian battles in the early days.
He was in the rescue party that went to relieve the party on Beecher Island in 1868, which was surrounded by the Indians. There are only two of that party now left in the county, Jack Peate and Chalmer Smith.
Mr. Boyle has been sheriff several times in this county.
Mr. Boyle has many friends in the county who will be pained to hear of his death.
The Republican extends sympathy to the bereaved relatives.
