Eleazar Boynton. by Charles H. Loomis. THE life of the Hon. Eleazar Boynton, which closed in Medford, June 5, 1901, was a marked and pleasing example of a well-rounded career: In character a manly Christian; in business a successful merchant; in political life honored by his fellow citizens; in religious and church interests an earnest worker; in benevolence a consistent and generous giver; in social life a welcome friend; and in the family circle highly favored and happy. The termination of a life built upon such foundations, and with such environment, must of necessity leave a place difficult to fill in the circles affected by it.
