Boise, ID Drowning. Aug 1903

Idaho

Boise: Henry GIDEON, the nine-year-old son of John V. GIDEON of Boise, was drowned Saturday night while swimming in the Boise river above town. His body has not been recovered. The father left the boy with friends twelve days ago, while he went down the valley to buy a ranch. He carried a large amount of money. As he has not been heard of since, it is feared he has met with foul play.
