Hi Amanda, I am a great-great-granddaughter of Samuel S Boss. (Grandfather was Charlie Boss, Great Grandfather was Leonidus Boss). I have documentation from a book written about About Hopkins County which I can send to you, also, you can search the National Parks Web site for civil war soldiers and I found info there. Samuel Boss and his son substituted for a father and son named Van Sickle in the Civil War. The Van Sickles paid a sum of money to the Boss families for this service. The Boss son later deserted when he went awol from a military hospital but S S Boss served his entire duty and was discharged. If you will give me your address, I will make copies and mail you any proof that I have. Let me know if you join the Find-A- Grave site and I will add you to my friends so that we can share info. I am in the process of proving my heritage so that I can join the Daughters of the Confederacy, which is an organization dedicated to preserving the history of the Civil War and helping to main grave sites and memorials. I live in Fort Worth and will gladly share any info that I have. I got a lot of my history from Eloise Boss McWatters and am in touch with her on a regular basis. Hope to hear back from you. You can email me direct at "blondy44@sbcglobal.net". Linda Boss Hendrix
