The information I have on Charles Bohn Jr., is somewhat sketchy. In the 1860 census for Farminton in Van Buren County, IA, he is listed as 65 years old and born in MD. That would make him born in 1794 or 1795 ddepending on birthdate. He is not in the 1870 census, so we assume he died between 1860 and 1870. I think I told you he died after 1870. That was incorrect, it was after 1860. I do have a page from a book by Clifford Neal Smith on the Federal Land Series and entry 934 and 935 mention Charles Bohn and Slingluff and also a Christian Deardoff. This is probably the same source you have. But that is about all I do have.
