New Hope United Methodist Cemetery
The church burial sited was kept for years by Dean Pope, he passed in the last few months, one of his daughters is now taking the photos and working on the site maps; the three daughters are getting ready to have a new stone sign put up in the cemetery in his honor, with the correct name. Please check out the correct Find A Grave site for the names you entered are already entered there.

New Hope Cemetery
Please check, it should be New Hope United Methodist Church Cemetery, which ALL READY EXISTS!
It is located in Ray County MO, Milleville, MO. Please change the name of your cemetery to the correct one in a few days they can be merged into the correct people, keeping the photos you put on.
The people you have listed are already listed under the correct cemetery name.
Thanks

I wanted to let you know that I did not find a stone for her. I'm photographing the whole cemetery, so I don't want to put a problem on the request just in case she is not buried near him. I have a few more sections to photo and enter. So hopefully she is buried elsewhere in the cemetery.
Thanks,
Kristy

Daniel B. (Boone) Boatwright
Here is more info including the links where I found the info:

Daniel Boatwright was born in Crawfordsville, Ind., February 17, 1831. His parents died when he was very young and when 10 years old he went with his brother to Polk county, Iowa. When seventeen years of age he went to Virginia [about 1849] but returned to Iowa in a few years.

In 1860 he was married to Martha Calender. In 1880 he moved to Kansas. Ten children were born to them, eight of whom are living, Annie, dying when a baby and Maggie, when sixteen years old. The living are Mrs. Belle McLenon, Monrovia; David, of Ladonia, MO; Samuel of Lancaster; Mrs. Sophia Hardon, of Nortonville; John, of Michellville, Iowa; Fred, of Seevers, Iowa; Mrs. Sadie Olson, Lancaster, and Jad, of Denton.

Spouse number two was Helena Louise Lena Kapelle Hughes, born in 1866 and died in 1927. Martha died in 1892. In 1900, according to tradition, after the death of Martha, Daniel advertised for a bride in the newspaper. Lena answered the ad. She was a young woman with two small children. Lena took the train to Atchison where they arranged to meet at the depot. Each was to wear a white flower for recognition. They talked awhile at the depot, then walked to the court house and were married.

Helena was first married to William Benton at Excelsior Springs, Clay County, Missouri on 4 July 1887. They were divorced at Liberty, Missouri. Both her children were fathered by Benton. She next married Carl Person in Blue Hill, Nebraska. He ran a store there and sold sewing machines and musical instruments. She left him after seven months. They were divorced at Olathe, Kansas on 5 Nov 1900.

Daniel and Helena were married twice in Atchison, Kansas. According to her pension request, one of Daniel's daughters was going to use the fact of her marrying Daniel before her divorce from Carl Person became final as a means of making trouble between Daniel and Helena, so they went to Atchison and were married again after the expiration of six months from the date of her divorce from Person. They were married both times by the probate judge. (If all this is correct, she was the age of Daniel's oldest daughter when they married)

Helena married Simon Hughes about a year and a half after Daniel died. Mr. Hughes lived only nine months after she married him.

Daniel joined the Christian church in 1859 and has been a member ever since. He joined the 39th Iowa Co. I of the Volunteer Infantry in 1862. He served two years and eight months, being discharged from the hospital of disability.

Daniel died March 28, 1911. The funeral services were held from the Union church at Lancaster Thursday afternoon at two o'clock. and were conducted by Rev. Richards and Elder Z.S. Hastings, of Effingham. Burial in Lancaster cemetery.

Dora Hill James in Highland Cem.
I appreciate your fulfilling my photo request for Dora for she is of my Hill family tree...but I'm curious as to why you put 2 photos on her page of the same photo, be nice if you would take one off for it leaves less room on her page for family to add other photos as I've done with many of my family memorial pages...just a hint, stand to the side when you take photos of markers like this that are like mirrors, your reflection is in the photo, many thanks, Kay.
