1). John s birthplace is unknown however, I believe that he was born in Maury County, Tennessee as was his first wife, Kizsiriah. John Bomer was a farmer and a livestock man and was said by some to have practiced veterinary medicine. Their first two children were born in Maury County prior to the families move to Hico, Kentucky Calloway County in 1856 1858 where they remained until after 1860. By 1870 they moved to Clear Spring, Kentucky in Graves County. They remained there until about 1880 when they moved to Benton, in Scott County, Southeast Missouri. Although John was illiterate, Kizsiriah could read and write. She was said to have been very active in the Presbyterian Church and may have taught religion. Four sons and one daughter moved to Texas and made their homes in the vicinity of Athens and Tyler. Those that moved were John Crittenden Bomer, Gidian J. Piller Bomer, George Jefferson Bomer, and Verona Verdia Bomer Matney. Their descendants now live throughout Texas, in New Mexico, and in Colorado. Two sons and one daughter remained in Missouri. They were James Fredrick Bomer James son Pompey John eventually moved to Colorado , Asa Bain Bomer, and Virginia Tennessee Bomer married James Hutchason . One son remained in, or returned to, northwestern Tennessee. William Wesley Bomer has many descendants in and around Henry, Carroll, and Weakley Counties, and in Ohio. After Kitty’s death John Alin remarrie, about 1890, at Benton, Missouri to Sarah O Dell Hand. There were three children by this marriage Clayton Claty Bomer, Cynthia Mullen Bomer, and Minnie Mae Bomer. The only child to survive to adulthood was Cynthia. Her descendants live throughout Missouri John Alin Bomer s date of death is uncertain. His tombstone is marked 27 June 1904, it is entered in the Family Bible as 27 June 1894 proven incorrect , and court records of Scott County, Missouri suggest it may have been before 1902. He was not enumerated with his second wife, Sarah Hand Bomer in the 1900 census. John Alin and Kizsiriah are buried in the Pollard Cemetery, 6 miles East of Benton, Missouri.
