[Letter typed exactly as written.]
Abram who also went by Abraham Boomershine was the son of Henry Boomershine (1789-1859). He was writing to his brothers, Henry (1821-1881) and George (1824-1875). The only sister, Christina had died in 1851. Henry & George were both living in Darke County at the time.
The father who had died was Henry Boomershine, son of the original Henry Boomershine. He had been married twice, the first time, 16 March 1817 to a widow, Mary Stoner, relict of Jacob Stoner. The second time, 20 OCT 1857 was to a Lavina Boston. Nothing is really known about her. She was quite a bit younger than Henry.
