Bud and Nancy were members of Enon Church near Evertonville having joined 11 March 1866. A large, framed picture of Bud and Nancy hangs on the living room wall of Mrs. Lucille Boone on Ginger Ridge Road, Adams Co., Ohio. Bud and Nancy are buried Boone Cemetery, Ginger Ridge Road. Boone Cemetery is commonly called "Uncle Bud's Cemetery" since Bud donated the land for the cemetery.

Bud had a reputation of being lazy and watching his pennies. His son-in-law, Thomas Isaac Mitchell, received gold coins every pay day. Bud traded his paper money for the gold coins and then held on tight to them, occasionally laying them out and just looking at them.
