James Boman was born 10 August 1803 in Georgia and died 29 May 1886 in Hancock, Illinois. He married Arcada or Arcadia Sturgis in 1825 in Sangamon County, Illinois. Arcadia was born 28 February 1802 in York County, South Carolina and died 1 January 1892 in Hancock County, Illinois. I have researched this Boman line rather extensively and have a lot of their descendants. My main research effort has been on the Sturgis line which can be traced back to at least John Sturgis and Dorothy Savage who were married 1 September 1661 in Northampton, Virginia. Our line was later found in Maryland, Delaware,South Carolina, and Illinois. Descendants are all over the country now.
A James Boman descendant, Dean Boman of Grove, Oregon, was kind enough to send me a photograph of James Boman and his wife Arcada Boman this past October 2007. I also have several pictures of Arcadia Sturgis's siblings.
