Old view of the cemetery
Very old view of Boone - Bryan Cemetery. Photo given to this website administrator by Stephens Museum at Central Methodist College, Fayette, Mo., where the original gravestones were placed for preservation long ago. The 'sunken' area in the foreground is believed to be where the Boone graves were opened in 1845. The two primitively carved stone markers, given to the college in the late 1800's by descendants of Daniel Boone, bear the names
"DANIEL BOON" and "REBECCA BOON."
