Notes on the John Calvin Boston Family of Whitesboro, Grayson Co.,

Boston family who is also in the area. I suspect Frederick b. 1814
is a brother to John Calvin Boston's father John b. 1816. Please
contact me if you have further information. Any further information
, photographs etc appreciated. There is also another family I am trying
to tie in, the George
