Boone had plans to link Ghent, Vevay by rail

An entrepreneur from Dayton, Ohio, at one time envisioned building a railroad line that would have extended from Ghent, Ky., to Savannah, Ga.

Albert E. Boone, an indirect relative of Kentucky explorer Daniel Boone, was born Nov. 18, 1845, in Dayton, where he was educated and, at 16, enlisted in Co. I, 84th Ohio Volunteer Infantry at the start of the Civil War.

According to “West Virginia and its People,” published in 1913, Boone eventually rose to the rank of colonel during his Army career.
