Revolutionary Patriot Graves in Boone County


This abstract of Boone County Indiana Revolutionary Patriot grave sites contains information published in Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots". Vol. 1-4. Veterans and patriots of the Revolutionary War whose graves were found between 1900 and 1987 by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) in Boone County, Indiana, are included in this abstract. Also included in each entry is the name of the patriot, the cemetery or location in which the headstone is found and the DAR indexing date.

The accuracy and amount of information varies considerably within and between years. Sometimes almost no specifics were given. Names are spelled exactly as they were in the original documents, and sometimes duplicate listings and variations of names might be found. Sometimes the same grave was indexed in various years and is listed twice with each index year.

The DAR date is the reporting year. For example, "1924" indicates the grave was located between April 1, 1924 and April 1, 1925 by the DAR. If possible, check the original publication, which might contain additional information, such as the patriot's birth and death dates and places, the service record of the patriot, and more details on the grave location.

This abstract is not all inclusive. There may be other graves in Boone County that were not included or identified. There may be errors. Many listings, particularly the earlier ones, were not substantiated. Use this data as a starting point only to assist you to obtain primary records or further substantiate this information. For additional information and clarification on these listings, please contact the Office of the Historian General, NSDAR, 1776 D St., N.W., Washington, DC 20006-5392 or the DAR Library at the same street address. You might find more information at the DAR Library in Washington, D. C, the genealogical section of the Dallas Public Library, the Genealogical Library in Salt Lake City or The Brigham Young University library which has a card file based on the published work of the DAR.
