Elizabeth Alford Boon
Birth: 1765
Rockingham County
Virginia, USA
Death: Feb. 15, 1841
Monroe County
West Virginia, USA

From the marriage record it is seen that John Alford was father of Elizabeth and was the surety.
AT THE TIME OF HER DEATH IN 1841 SHE LIVED IN ORGAN CAVE,GREENBRIER CO. West Virginia.

Burial in Robinson-Boone Cemetery. From Ronceverte, WVA, go S on US route 219 for 2.5 mi. to Organ Cave. Turn left onto State route 63(Monroe Draft Rd.) Follow this road past the entrance to Organ Cave to the first farm house on the right( the Kellico farm). This cemetery was located to the right of this house and is part of the existing yard. There are no stones. ON A VISIT TO THE FARM IN 2001 I MET THE OWNERS AND RECEIVED PERMISSION TO PHOTOGRAPH THE REMAINS OF THE CEMETERY. THE CURRENT OWNERS ARE A DESCENDANT OF JOHN BOON.
THERE IS A SAD STORY CONCERNING THE CEMETERY AS FOLLOWS:

From Ronceverte, WVA, go S on US route 219 for 2.5 mi. to Organ Cave. Turn left onto State route 63(Monroe Draft Rd.) Follow this road past the entrance to Organ Cave to the first farm house on the right( the Kellico farm). This cemetery was located to the right of this house and is part of the existing yard. There are no stones.THE HOUSE AND CEMETERY STAND AT TOP OF A SLOWLY RISING HILL. THE STORY HAS BEEN THAT IN THE 1950S A NEW OWNER OF THE HOME DIDN'T LIKE THE HEADSTONES IN HIS BACK YARD. I VISITED THE HOME IN OCT. OF 2001 AND I CAN TESTIFY THAT THE GRAVES ARE JUST OUTSIDE THE BACK DOOR OF THE HOUSE.THEY ARE QUITE EASILY SEEN. ANYHOW THE NEW OWNER HAD THE STONES KNOCKED OVER AND THROWN INTO THE TWO PONDS IN THE VALLEY BELOW THE HOUSE. ONE OF THE STONES , BEING THAT OF ELIZABETH ALFORD BOONE, HAS BEEN FOUND.

ELIZABETH IS THE 5TH CHILD AND 2ND DAUGHTER BORN TO "IRISH" JOHN ALFORD AND HIS WIFE NANCY. SHE MARRIED JOHN BOON ON JULY 9, 1788 IN ROCKINGHAM CO., Virginia.
ELIZABETH AND JOHN BOON ARE MY 3RD GREAT GRAND PARENTS.
