There seems to be a lot of different opinions about the dates and places for Martha Boone. If someone can provide the correct dates and places, I will be happy to make the changes. For now, I will leave them as they stand.

On this memorial page when it was transferred to me:
LDS reports she is buried at "Boone's Creek" Fayette CO., KY.

If anyone has more/better information, please contact me.
