Last Soldier Francis Ritter
Francis Ritter (1846-1944) was the last living soldier of Boone County. He served in Company K, 9th Iowa Infantry Regiment. Linwood Cemetery in Boone does not permit markers but were willing to have us put the Last Soldier marker at the CW Monument. The first two photos show the marker for Francis Ritter at the Monument and the final photo is at his actual grave site. For more information about the Monument and Cannons, see a separate site under Boone County. Thanks to Danny Krock for working with the cemetery to find a place for the marker and providing photos.
