|Susan B||RE: Boon cemetery in Newton County, MO|
The cemetery was documented in a book that I found in the Newton County MO library in Neosho. Unfortunately, I expected that I would find the cemetery itself and didn't note the date of the book or make copies of the pictures of stones which weren't family members. I also have a handwritten note that my parents and aunt found the cemetery in the 80's and that the tombstones had "been cemented for perpetuity" so I have hopes that they are still there. If I ever find it (or when I go back to Neosho and see the book again) I will look for Samuel. Thanks for your reply and all your work!

Do you know how to find the Boon cemetery near Stella, MO? You have a Holcomb (Samuel William) reportedly buried there in 1918, though all the other burials were much earlier. I was in the area searching for it a couple of weeks ago and couldn't find anyone living there who knew where it was. It is not located by Google maps or on the Find-a-Grave website. I have multiple family members buried there in the mid 1800's and would like to find it.

He is listed on Forest Park records but location of headstone is unknown.

The newspaper and date are unknown to me.
My guess is a Harrisonville, MO paper, or somewhere in that area...could be one of the Kansas City papers. (there used to be a Kansas City Times).

The Carterville Cemetery Book was done in 1982, they are in the copy but have no stone. I would just say that they maybe there but the only source are all secondary source.

You are welcome, it was after all a nice day in Springfield, and a bulky sweater was nice enough to be out in to do the photos.
