Aledo, Ill., Dec. 25. - George Boone, a veteran of the Civil war and pioneer resident of Mercer county, died at his home on West Sixth street at noon Thursday, after a few weeks' illness with pneumonia.

He is survived by his wife, one daughter, Mrs. Henry Zentmire of Sioux City, Iowa, one step-daughter, Mrs. Amos Kiddoo of Oklahoma, his twin brother, Washington Boone, and one sister, Mrs. Theodore Day, both of this city, besides many other relatives and friends.
