Birth: Feb. 1, 1835
Death: Apr. 26, 1927

NEWTONIA - John Hobdy Boston was born February 1, 1835 at Falmouth, Ky. He died April 26, 1927, at Newtonia, Mo. In 1856 he came to Lewis Co Mo. He married Miss Eugenia Wainright in August, 1858. She died July, 1918. To this union eleven children were born, eight survive the father, three having gone before him. In early life brother Boston embraced Christianity, uniting with the Methodist Church, in which he remained a loyal member throughout his long life. He moved to Newtonia in 1876 where he resided until his death. The deceased was to optimistic type, never complaining or finding fault, but with a charitable disposition, and kind word for all he met, he proved a benediction to all who came into his presence. He lived a long and happy life, caring more for eternal interest than for temporal affairs. His faith in God was unshaken by the storms of life. He was blessed with health until a short time before he passed peacefully away. He was a man who had no enemies, but all who knew him loved him. In his home he was a devoted husband, a loving father and in the community a most exemplary citizen. During his last days he was anxious to go to that eternal home where he could strike glad hands with loved ones on the other shore. Truly, his children can rise up and call him blessed. Honor to his memory.--A Friend. Source: "The Neosho Times".
