After a long and painful illness, died Sept. 28th.  Mr. Boger was one of the best men of Cherokee county.  A good neighbor, a kind husband and father, an upright citizen, an honest man.  He was a true and gallant soldier in the late war, and won the confidence and esteem of all with whom he was associated in those days of trial, privation and suffering.  He was, we believe, a member of the Presbyterian church, and we have reason to believe that while his body rests in hope, his immortal spirit dwells in the happy world above.  He leaves a wife and several children to mourn his loss, and many hearts are sad because a good man has fallen.  May God in his mercy grant his grace to the bereaved and stricken ones who mourn a husband and father gone, and may they all find a home in heaven at last, where “all tears shall be wiped away from all eyes.” – B. [Resolutions of Respect by the Hickory Flat Lodge of Cherokee Co. can be found on page 3 of the October 24, 1872 issue.]
