Here is an item I culled out of The Munson Record. Should be interesting to my family and friends in the Northwest. Especially those near Boise. He was captain of a company raised to fight in the Oregon Indian Wars of 1855-1856. He followed in the steps of his ancestor, Captain Thomas Munson, who fought in the New England Indian Wars of the 17th century. The news article on his death is dated 1884. He could have lived in Boise 20 to 30 years.
