James Boyd 40 could easily pass for Booth 27 despite the age difference.

Boyde had a leg wound to his right leg from the civil war, Booth injured his left leg the night of the Lincoln assassination.

John Booth lived to be 65 years old. Booth's body was found mummified in a Memphis attorney's garage in 1931.

Then, in 1903, a house painter calling himself David E. George committed suicide in the small town of Enid, Oklahoma.

Correcting History

George was a friendless old man, without the slightest talent for painting houses. He preferred to sit in his boarding house and read theatrical journals. Often drunk, he would quote Shakespeare and once lamented to his landlady, "I'm not an ordinary painter. You don't know who I am. I killed the best man that ever lived."

One night, George went up to his dreary room and swallowed a massive dose of poison. Such a death would have rated a few lines on the obituary page of the Enid paper, but for one element. On his deathbed, George confessed to the minister that he was John Wilkes Booth.

The minister told the local undertaker, who remembered: "I took special pains with the body after that. If it was Booth's body, I wanted to preserve it for the Washington officials when they came." The undertaker did his job well and actually mummified the body with arsenic.

Re: John Wilkes Booth escaped
Been reading a lot about Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth the last few days. Now you got me investigating this possibility, OP. But from what I read, this below for example, Booth's body was positively identified:

Within a short time, several people who knew Booth personally positively identified the body which was haggard from 12 days of riding, rowing, and hiding in underbrush. One of these people was Dr. John Frederick May. Some time prior to the assassination, Dr. May had removed a large fibroid tumor from Booth's neck. Dr. May found a scar from his operation on the corpse's neck exactly where it should have been. Booth's dentist, Dr. William Merrill, who had filled two teeth for Booth shortly before the assassination, pried open the corpse's mouth and positively identified his fillings. Charles Dawson, the clerk at the National Hotel where Booth was staying, examined the remains, saying "I distinctly recognize it as the body of J. Wilkes Booth - first, from the general appearance, next, from the India-ink letters, 'J.W.B.,' on his wrist, which I had very frequently noticed, and then by a scar on the neck. I also recognize the vest as that of J. Wilkes Booth." (As a boy Booth had his initials indelibly tattooed on the back of his left hand between his thumb and forefinger.) Seaton Munroe, a prominent Washington attorney who knew Booth, viewed the body and said that he "was very familiar with his (Booth's) face and distinctly recognize it." Alexander Gardner, a well-known Washington photographer, and his assistant, Timothy H. O'Sullivan, were also among those called to the Montauk to identify Booth's corpse.

For the actual statements regarding the positive identification by Charles M. Collins, Charles Dawson, Seaton Munroe, John Frederick May, and William Wallach Crowninshield, please see pp. 121-129 of The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln by Thomas R. Turner.
Surgeon General Joseph K. Barnes and Dr. Joseph Janvier Woodward performed John Wilkes Booth's autopsy aboard the Montauk.
