Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching my ancestors with surnames Davidson, Hardin, Mabary, Watson, Farnsworth, McBurney, Prine, Hamilton, Adams, Hines, Belieu, Chamberlain, and of course, many many more. I live in Seattle, WA.

I am happy to do research in my area, and to take photos of graves that are near me or near where I will be travelling. It's the least I can do, since I'll be requesting the same of others. Feel free to contact me for whatever reason.

We've run across this version of your surname in Miller county, MO and in central Illinois. In Miller county,MO they pronounce it "Blue" and the family that attended the same church we do, pronounced it "Bill-you." That's why I asked. The Boone family I have been looking for is Samuel Boone (Thomas, Squire III, Samuel, Squire I). Samuel married my 3rd great-grandmother's first cousin, Elmaza Jane Fletcher. I've been trying to find out where she is buried also (d. 1854).

A William Cooke Boone Descendant
I found one of William Cooke Boone's descendants here on Findagrave -- Martha Boone Faust #82245477. She is mentioned in the book below.

Before I forget -- is the surname Bilieu French and pronounced "Blue" or "Bill-you?"

Albert Upshaw Boone
My husband ordered a book for me through interlibrary loan called "The Boone Family & Kentucky Baptists" by Leo T. Crismon. Kentucky Baptist Historical Society, Louisville, KY; 1946. In the back it has a chart and I was wondering if William Cooke Boone (b. Feb. 8, 1892), son of Arthur Upshaw Boone #99551385 is still alive or has he passed?

Adams Hines Cemetery
Also, after we sell you may want to remind me and I will transfer the entire cemetery to you if you're interested.

Adams Hines Cemetery
Stay in touch. That cemetery is so riddled. A huge tree, far larger than any group of people could even handle, fell a few years ago amidst the tombstones. There is no money for maintaining it; the county does bits with cemeteries but their volunteer group would be overwhelmed by the breadth of the cleanup of that 200-year-old tree which grew in the center of the graves. I tried to get W. Ky University's woodworking department to take it but they thought it was too inaccessible.
So long as there are living descendents keeping up on the graves of their ancestors the land can't be sold out or otherwise diverted for use. It is truly too small without combination with an adjacent property such as ours and we certainly weren't going to change anything about it.
We will be listing our property though this spring or summer. If you want/ need any photographs, let me know soon; I am going up Jan. 2-4 to check out the current renter; I could take photos then.

RE: Adams and Hines
WOW! I got another message and am finally beginning to really read the messages. I apologize profusely for taking 6 years to transfer ownership of the gravesite to you. We own the land adjacent-- the only access to the cemetery. When we bought in 2000, only 3 graves were visible. Over the 9 years we lived there, we found many more, some merely stones set upright; we wondered if some of those were early graves or perhaps slave graves. We loved the tranquility of the cemetery. I found it had been written up in "Graves of Warren County" and was described decades before as very remote and in disrepair-- will probably disappear within 5-10 years. We worked steadily to restore the sites and individual graves and researched the stories behind the people-- finally we tracked them to Moses Taylor/ Elizabeth Prevatte Taylor and their emigration from North Carolina to Kentucky in 1796. The Wileys, Adamses, Hines, Daughertys, etc., were in their entourage/ had lived nearby in Craven County, NC.
I am so pleased to know you are family. I look forward to seeing what you post. We still own the property, plan to sell this year perhaps but when we go back in the spring we will definitely check on the cemetery and tell you if conditions have changed markedly. The house has been rented for 5 years and I doubt the tenants have done any upkeep. If you want or need any more information, please don't hesitate to contact me.

RE: Dorothy Gomez Bragino
Thanks for the link to their song. It makes me fell like I know them a little better. That is more than I expect in return for taking a picture. Let me know if I can take any more for you in the LA area.

RE: Dorothy Gomez Bragino
Glad to do it. I had to go back twice because the name was different. I looked right at it the first time, then had to check with the office to see if it was the correct location. Very odd because their records show her name was Bragino. Do you know if there is any film available of her performances?
