The vagaries of genius authors

Does anyone understand how in the name of heaven JRRT could have put Thorongil - who, if you've not read the books, is Aragorn - in Minas Tirith when Boromir was born, serving Boromir's grandfather, having spatty rivalries with Boromir's father, and almost unquestionably becoming acquainted with the toddler, and not have addressed that little bit of history anywhere as the Fellowship traveled together?

Is it just me, or is that extremely annoying?

Though, of course, it does give fanfic writers such as myself much good material to explore. Still. It seems unnecessarily churlish towards Boromir for his own author not to have mentioned that his would-be king probably babysat him.
