  1. That graveyard gathering pic of the siblings is a real keeper. Where/when was it taken ?

    1. A cousin had it :) Mary Catherine (Boon) Simmons, the female on the right, is my 2nd great-aunt. She was married to by great-grandfather's brother.

  3. I wish someone would fix it (I assume this is the famous Daniel Boone). Such a loss if they don't take care of it now.

    1. Not only is this not the famous Daniel Boone, even though the family has always said he was related I have never been able to find the connection nor have any of the serious Boone researchers.
