How old was he when he passed?

Bill,

He was 16 when he died.

Joe

Way too young- how sad. Thanks, Joe.

Folks, I am out of clues. It was Charles Francis Byrne who was playing Captain De Boots in Our American Cousin. My aging eyes think it looks like it's spelled Byrnes in the playbill. His statement is on pp. 168-169 of Tim Good's We Saw Lincoln Shot: One Hundred Eyewitness Accounts. The account was from February 12, 1929.

Playbill does say Byrnes. I tried to cheat and figure it out. According to the script of the play, the next man to come on stage after the gunshot would have been Binney. Captain De Boots wasn't due until Act III, Scene 7.

Which character in the Lincoln assassination saga claimed that he once met President Lincoln and shook hands with him. Lincoln said, "How do you do, sir? I am glad to see you."

Was it Mr. Booth himself?

A most logical guess, Bill, but it wasn't him.

Another good guess, Mr. Hess, but it was not John Surratt.

Nope, not him.

Hint #1: John Wilkes Booth knew this man.
