Search Boone Family Cemetery:

Also known as Neal's Landing Boone, or Neal Academy cemetery. Marked on topo maps as "cem."

Where once there were over 100 graves now are only a few with markers, all the rest were bulldozed ...
The site is on private hunting preserve land along the remnants of the old River Road. The cemetery has many ground depressions...

The old site has an ancient wrought iron fencing around it and around an infant grave and that of perhaps 2-3 adults but, with no markers.

Directions: Section 34, Township 7 North, Range 8 West. Located on private hunting preserve land, south of State Highway 2 before it crosses the river at Neal's Landing, and east of Timberlane Road. From the crest of what remains of the old original River Road, continue on the old road toward the river about 50 yards; there turn left, leaving the road, and go about 80 feet into the woods. The GPS location coordinates are: North 30 degrees, 57.778 minutes; West 85 degrees, 0.83 minutes.
The cemetery seems to have originally been much larger than just the 3 fenced-in-areas, with obvious grave-sized depressions between & beyond the 3 fenced-in-areas.

One small grave surrounded by wrought iron fence must have been a child's grave from its size.

Another fence surrounded an area sufficient in size for an adult's grave. No marker could be found there without a probe.

Near the above fenced graves were graves that had at one time been marked off, and/or covered, with many old bricks which have now deteriorated greatly. No markers could be found there without a probe.
