Edward (40B) Boonen Graves died at the age of 11, the only child of E. Boonen Graves, as noted in  the NY Times. (Of eleven death notices on July 18th, 1854, eight were of children.) Like his older brother John (40A), little information is known about him.  He was born about 1843, probably in New York where his parents were living, and he died on July 16, 1854 in Florence, Massachusetts of "constipation of the bowel." His body was taken back to New York and was buried in the NY Marble Cemetery in the Graves family vault, #44.
