<His grave, as tourist attractions go, is hard to find and must be approached on foot. Yet visitors by the tens of thousands, and from all over the country, stream to it the year around. One dear old lady asked: "Is Mingo buried here, too?"> Allan M. Trout, "Here Lies Daniel Boone. Or Does He?" Courier-Journal Magazine, 6/8/1969.

<The pressure behind this request [to remove Boone's body to KY] came from the proprietors of Frankfort Cemetery, then in the process of organization. They correctly forsaw in Boone's reburial a massive potential of promotion and advertising for their new venture.> To try and fend off the Kentuckians, MO appropriated $500 for a handsome monument to mark the MO graves on the farm of Harvey Griswold; but the disinternment committee arrived before MO could act.

Unmarked until 1860; then the monument erected in 1862 was defaced by Union soldiers; souvenir hunters continued to chip away at it; 1910 the legislature appropriated $2000 to match private subscriptions; the new monument was then erected.

In 1935 the lieutenant governor of Missouri came to Frankfort and formally requested the Kentucky Historical Society to return DB's remains. In 1937 Warrenton MO petitioned Gov. Albert B. Chandler to return them to their original resting place. In 1955 the Chamber of Commerce of St. Charles Mo petitioned for the return of Rebecca's bones for reburial with DB's, which they claimed had never been removed. Allan M.

<Actually, it makes little, if any difference whether the mortal trace in Frankfort Cemetery is of Boone or a stranger. In the minds of millions, he and his wife are buried here on a picturesque river bluff overlookikng the capitol of the Bluegrass state he found 200 years ago. He may not be buried here. And, of course, he did not find this land first, nor start it on the road to sovereign statehood.> Allan M. Trout, "Here Lies Daniel Boone. Or Does He?" Courier-Journal Magazine, 6/8/1969.
