Biographical Information

Joseph Daniel Boardman was born July 10, 1832, at Granville, Ohio, the son of Samuel and Minerva Reed Boardman. Samuel was a farmer and operated a sawmill. On November 9, 1856, Joseph married Josephine Julia Maynard, whose brother Will is referred to in the letter.

The couple had four children. Alma died in 1863 at the age of four, and Frank, who is referred to in the letter, died in 1864, possibly before Boardman returned home. The other two children, Harry and Clara, both referenced in the letter, survived to adulthood.

Joseph returned to Ohio following the Civil War and continued to operate the farm and sawmill with his father. He died on January 31, 1912.
