Capt. S.M. Boone' Venture.
Somerset, KY., March 1 (special)--The intitial number of the Pulaski County Enterprise, a thoroughly Democratic paper, appeared this morning. It presents a very neat appearance, and its matter is bright and spicy. Capt. S.M. Boone and C.E. Colyer, its editors, are both popular and staunch Democrats, and it is expected that they will do good work toward united the badly demoralized Democracy of Pulaski. Capt. Boone has made a number of ventures in journalism, and has always retired with additional laurels. Cy. E. Colyer is a rising young lawyer, with plenty of ability and an endless number of relatives and friends.

- Birth date discrpancy: 1930 census shows him being 64, therefore born in 1865-66. However, Sarah, sister to Cyrenius is shows in family bible of Samuel Colyer as being born August 1865. Furthermore, Samuel Colyer (Cyrenius brother) shows Cyrenius being born 12/10/1861. Is a family secret in there somewhere ? Since Cyrenius father and mother were married in July 1861, was mother pregnant when they married.....shotgun wedding ? Family legend was that Louisa, visited Granade in Nashville after the civil war, where it is said he stayed a couple years after war due to misgivings of neighbors over civil war. Louisa, mother to Cyrenius would have had to visit Nashville in late 1864 for sister Sarah to have been born in August 1865.
