Sorry but that Rose Bush has just about taken over the stone, I moved it out of the way as much as I could without tearing it down.

Her husband John is from what we have labeled as the Isle of Wight Boone line, I have found several from it in this area, and not from my George Boone III and Mary Milton Mogridge line of Daniel Boone's. I have the records tracing this line back into Maryland instead of Pennsylvania. They came to Daviess County between the 1860 and 1870 Census from Nelson County, Kentucky.

There is a book available on this line if anyone is interested on called "Boone Family to Virginia Immigrants" as a researcher from my Boone line found it necessary to write one to set the record straight.

Several individuals from this line submitted to DNA testing so it could be confirmed and there was no match between the two lines.

You will find several of their records do not include the "e" at the end of Boone.

Several years ago I first discovered this line was here when I came across the headstone of her grandson Bernard Boone in the Rosehill Cemetery in Owensboro, Daviess Co., Kentucky.

There have been several times just like this where these two lines lived in the same area but we have yet to find a marriage between them.

I have finally found all of their census records, the elusive 1870 census was under the name of the John Booth Family here in Daviess County.

With that I now have a record of the following children, in the 1910 Census Rozella was asked to answer the question of children and she answered 10 born and 9 living, in that case the list is missing one:

Mary Elizabeth Boone born Sept. 12, 1858, Nelson Co. Kentucky married John Henry Bartley
Children: Anna, Charles Augustin, Paul, Agnes, Nora L. and James Leslie

George Leo born 1860 Nelson County, Kentucky married Viola Reeves last shown in 1930 Census in New Madrid County, Missouri.
Children: Joseph Hilary, Robert Lee and Lillie Mae

Joseph Columbus born Nov. 29, 1862, Nelson County, Kentucky - He does show as widowed in the 1910 Census but spouse unknown.

Edward Boone born Abt. 1870 Daviess County, Kentucky - the 1870 Census is the only record he shows on.

John William born May 13, 1865 Daviess County, Kentucky 1st married Susan A. Wheeler
Children: Henry James Boone
2nd married Mary Dell Wheeler, Susan's sister.

James Columbus Boone born Mar. 8, 1867 married Mollie Gootee
Children: Bennie, Martin, Joe, Annie, Albert, Almer, Rosa Lee, Forrest Thomas, Georgie L., Robert T. and Sam B. Boone

Richard Lee born Sept. 20, 1872 - I am still searching for records to confirm his marriage or marriages. His 1900 Census shows him married to a Cara born Feb 1883. In 1910 he shows up with his mother as widowed but left the number of children blank.

Charles born Feb 18, 1875 in Daviess County, Kentucky

Hillary Matthew Boone (His stone shows Hillary if you want to verify it on Ancestry in two different pictures on two different trees) born Sept. 21, 1876 in Daviess County, Kentucky married Bessie Lee Booker
Children: Jay Lee, Bernard H., Joseph Hilary, Helen Lucille, James Alysious and Virginia May. Sometime between 1930 and when she died in 1937 Bessie divorced Hillary and married Harrison Van Buren Logsdon. Her true memorial is FAG# 28876583 a picture for that memorial is also on a Ancestry tree.

Some of her grandchildren's names are based on how they showed in Census Records with their parents or their birth records and may vary a little from their actual names.
