Here is the information that I have on the Boas in Ft. Smith.

Frederick Willian Boas, b. 15 Mar. 1839 Grafenheinchen, Prussia, d. 17 Apr. 1895 in Ft. Smith, Ar., m. Mary Verena Merk 8 Sep. 1864 in Ft. Smith, b. 12 Mar. 1840 Wurmlingen, Werttemburg, Germany, d. 1 Aug. 1939 in Ft. Smith. Both are buried in the Oak Cemetery, Ft. Smith.

Children of Frederick and Mary (Merk) Boas:

William Boas, b. 24 Jul. 1865 Ft. Scott, Bourbon Co., Kansas, d. 13 Jun. 1930 Ft. Smith, m. 5 Oct. 1887 to Tillie Bollinger.

Heinrich W. (Henry) Boas, b. Oct. 1867 Ft. Smith, m. 18 Feb. 1892 Rosa Fuhrman. (This is probably your Henry and Rosa). Child is listed as Ellen Boas, no birth date given.

Anna Maria Wilhelmine Boas, b. 20 Dec. 1870 Ft. Smith, d. 8 Jan. 1952 Ft. Smith, m. 5 Oct. 1892 Johan H. Kruel in Ft. Smith.

Emma Margaret Boas, b. 10 Oct. 1874, Ft. Smith, d. 28 Oct. 1874.

Ofemil or Emil Boas, b. 15 Sep. 1875, Ft. Smith, d. 5 Aug. 1878.

Helma Aurelia Boas (my grandmother) b. 23 Feb. 1879, Ft. Smilth, d. 21 Jul. 1967, Spiro, LeFlore Co., Ok., m. Sion Rex Ferguson, 22 Jun. 1904.

This information is from the Clan Ferguson genealogy books.
