Life Sketch:
Tyler Boone's death occurred at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Frank Hull of the Meadow Grove community, the morning of December 27, 1928 and followed a long period of ill health.
Mr. Boone was born November 9, 1840 in Clay county, Indiana, (son of Squire & Phebe Rissler Boone)and had reached the ripe old age of 88 years 1 month and 18 days when death claimed him. While young in years, he moved to Boone county and his home has been here continuously ever since--a long period of approximately three quarters of a century.
Previous to the breaking out of the Civil War, Mr. Boone was united in marriage to Miss Mary Nutt, also a native of Indiana, but who came to Iowa when a girl. To this union were born nine children, five of whom reached maturity. Those who survive their father are Philip and Lewis of Madrid, Mrs. Julia Bates of Sioux City and Mrs. Minnie Hull with whom he had made his home since the death of his wife twenty four years ago . . . In addition to the surviving children, fourteen grandchildren, and a number of great-grandchildren are left to revere his memory.

Mr. Boone was one of the few remaining soldiers of the Civil War. He was a member of 13th Iowa, Company A., and served thirteen months of the rebellion. A twin brother was killed in the battle of Shiloh. . .
He came to Iowa when the state was in its childhood, braved the stresses of pioneer existance, and made his many contributions toward the splendid civilization the state and community enjoys today. Those who have known him for many years declare that no one held ill-will toward him, but that the friendship of all was his full portion. To old and young, he had affectionately been known for many years as "Uncle Tyler."
