Kentucky Burial
<The remains of Daniel Boone and wife were brought to Frankfort, on the 23d inst., under the care of Col. William Boone, of Shelby county, the oldest surviving nephew of the deceased and Messr. Thos. L. Crittenden and Philip Swigert, of this place. These gentlemen visited Missouri as a committee for that purpose, being charged, by the Frankfort Cemetery company, with the patriotic duty of removing to the land of their early vicisitudes and trials, the remains of these noble and fearless pioneers. . . . The consent to their removal was first obtained from Captain Nathan Boone, of the U.S. Rangers, their only surviving son, and from their numerous descendants now resident in Missouri, in pursuance of the request of the Company, and in which request many of the distinguished citizens of our State united. They were disintered from the spot, where they had been buried, near Marthasville, Missouri, and a large number of their connections and descendants were present at the ceremony. The committee speak in terms of high gratification at the kind and hospitable manner in which they were received and entertained by the relatives during their visit.> Frankfort COMMONWEALTH, 7/29/1845 in 3OCC30
