Directions: Boone Cemetery
This cemetery is on private farmland in Indian Creek Township in Lawrence County, Indiana.

For permission to crossland to get to cemetery you can call Mr Mickey Kinsen at (812) 834-5568. This is where Jeremiah Boone and his wife Joice Boone are buried. In relation to the Boone family I have also came across the grave of Jonathan Boone a cousin to Daniel Boone out in Crawford County, Indiana.

To get to this farm in Lawrence County, Indiana take State Road 158 from Bedford. Go West 9 miles to Silverville. Turn right (North) at the crossroads blacktop road, go 1.8 miles and the cemetery is on the right up on a hill. You cross three small bridges that are very close together just before you get to your destination on this county road. You have to cross pastureland and a gully and it is about 2/10 of mile to the top of the hill to reach the cemetery. There is a fence around the cemetery, and the cemetery can be seen from the road when the leaves are off the trees.

  • "I wanted to pass a picture on to your Chapter. I descend from both Jeremiah Boone and John Short, from your Lawrence Co. patriots list, and the attached is a picture, possibly taken in the '30s, of Jeremiah Boone's headstone (with his wife's next to it), before it became broken. Feel free to make use of it on your site, if you would like.

    I don't know if I could provide any information on these 2 men in particular for your Chapter, but would be happy to do so if anyone is interested".

    Best wishes, Doy
