soon after to Elyria, Ohio. In 1860, Almon, with his family, moved from Ohio

to St. Joseph, Mo. The family suffered greatly during the Civil War, and was

much broken up. After its close, he engaged in railroad construction, and

lived in St. Louis. He died of cholera in Poplar Bluffs, Mo. June 19, 1873.

He was a man of much natural ability, a sanguine temperament, and kindly

nature. He had no proper schooling advantages in his boyhood, his early life

being cast on the frontiers, but notwithstanding, he acquired a good English

education. He was a great student of American politics, but never sought

political office, although offices were more than once at his disposal.

daughter of Capt. Joshua Boynton.
