Has anyone ever heard of a place in Brown County named "Boan"? The 1924 obituary of my ancestor John Gazett says he was born in Boan, Brown county, Wisconsin in 1861. I've looked everywhere, and can't find anything even close to "Boan". Was it the original name of a township? post office? church?

I cannot find it either. You can see land records, recording date of 1858, for a Jacob Gazett in Brown County- was that John's father? This gives the location of the property
