Benjamin Z. Boone    

BENJAMIN Z. BOONE. The participants in the events of the early heroic days of Texas have nearly all passed like shadows from the land that once thrilled at their deeds. One of the number, Benjamin Z. Boone, died at Blanco, Texas, February 13, 1903.

He was born in St. Charles county, Missouri, September 15, 1816, and came to Texas in 1837. Besides taking part in numerous Indian fights and rendering the usual service of pioneers in the protection of the frontier, he was one of those who invaded Mexico upon the disbanding of the Somervell expedition on the Rio Grande in 1842, participated in the drawing of black beans at the hacienda of Salado, and, having the good fortune to draw a white bean, escaped death and, after an imprisonment of twenty-two months at the castle of San Carlos, near Perote, was released, and returned to Texas and settled in Blanco County, where he thereafter resided. He remained active until his death, going about on foot and horseback.
