John W. Boden

If you've ever searched and searched for an ancestor and wondered where he went, maybe your ancestor suffered a fate similar to the one we found in the Afton (Union County, Iowa) Enterprise on June 2, 1892. Could this be the same John Boden who was a deputy fish and game warden for the State of Iowa in 1909-1910?

"John W. Boden, of Madison township, Clarke county, disappeared from home on Saturday morning, May 21. He is about 49 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighs about 140 pounds; has black hair turning gray and full beard which is quite gray. He wore a black wool hat, dark coat and vest and jeans pants. Any informaiton will be thankfully received. Address Lee Boden, Box 208, Murray, Iowa."
