****From a biography posted by Rebecca Miller****
Mr. C. has a farm of 300 acres, well improved and abundance in store to make him comfortable in his old age; he came on his present farm in 1855; seven times death has visited Mr. C. yet Time is dealing gently with him.
He died in a building on the Boone County Poor Farm in Boone County, Iowa, which burned on the late night of January 23, 1894, where he was being cared for in his elderly years~
He was one of eight other people who were also burned alive and could not escape this building.
He died a horrible death and I hope so much this will honor his memory~All My Love~
