Son of John & Sarah Wilson Borah, Husband of Eliza West (m. January 1846), Father of Senator William Edgar Borah.
Taken from article is it appeared in the Fairfield Newspaper: .....Here he grew to manhood and became a very prominent man in the affairs of the community and county. He was elected a number of times to the county court, until he refused to accept it any longer. In his active days he was a man of wide acquaintance in the country and was universally known for his honesty......a man of great natural ability, far more than the average man. Historian of ancient history....and good theologian. He has been a great force in the morals of his country....he left his impression upon a citizenship that will be felt for generations to come.
