Folsomville news in Boonville Enquirer, Saturday, April 17, 1875:

"I have not gathered many items for this week but perhaps I should say more of Benjamin Folsom's death which was merely announced last week. His funeral was preached by J. Ferguson after school on Wednesday evening at the family residence; and on Thursday his remains were taken to the Mt. Gilead grave yard beyond Boonville, a large concourse of friends accompanying the family. He was a man of considerable influence and will be very much missed."
