D/O Joseph Scholl, Revolutionary war soldier, and Levina Boone (daughter of Daniel Boone and Rebecca Bryan), most probably named after her paternal grandmother Leah Morgan Scholl; born in Fayette county per this memorial stone (see notes below)

Burial per the transcription by:
J. E. Combs, James Cornett, Thomas Cornett,
Mark Edwards
Date: 02/22/2006

Note that the last names are historically spelled Newnam; however, the historical marker has begun the misspelling of both the cemetery and Leah's husband by spelling it NewMAN. This marker also misspells father Joseph's name as "Joeseph".
