Jesse Boots #46912719
Hello Cheryl (Theroux) Whitican

I used the edit button for Jesse's Birth date
of April 19 1808. The 19th wasn't on his memorial. I got the 19th from Mary Elizabeth Ketterman Boots Memorial #35615364 it states 7)Jesse Boots .04/19/1808 m.1)Sarah Ann Thornburg, m.2)Anna Catherine_?_ (she d.12/21/1852); then it has d.05/30/1883 that is Jesse's death date correct? On Jesse's memorial it states his wife was Susan Butts Boots was she his 3rd wife?

and in the inscription I guess George and Cora are their children?

Any idea on why Susan Butts isn't on Mary E Ketterman's memorial?
Thank You Very Much

# 35615364 Mary Boots
Hello Cheryl (Theroux) Whitican
Are you related to the Boots family?
I am a Boots relative Mary was my 5th great grandmother. Her son Levi Boots my 4th great grandfather.His son Daniel D Boots Memorial #49572053 My 3rd great grand father.
His daughter Bertha Alma Daniels Memorial #121822467 my 2nd great grandmother. Her daughter Mary Hetway Sprowls Memorial#85943582 My great grandmother. I am not asking for a linking just saying how I Am related to the Boots. I red that the Boots cemetery is now defunct. Do you know what the address of the cemetery is the streets it was located on so I could look it up on a map? Do you know what happened to the graves, were they moved or what? How and where did you get the Greene county Records. What does it mean that the burial ground was grazed but not cultivated.
Please e-mail me at

Thank you very much

RE: Gillit
Thanks for linking, but the name is GILLET, not Gillit. Look carefully at the tombstones. I also sent updates on names and dates.
Thanks again.

Hi Cheryl:

Is there anyway to know the location of this grave stone within the cemetery? Markers are down and some are illegible. Thank you.

Moses Trader
Thank you once again for posting Moses Trader's memorial and historical information. I am wondering if my gggg-grandfather, John, was Moses' brother. Surely Moses was not an only child. John "disappeared" from Boone County, Kentucky about 1813, leaving two baby sons, (my ggg-grandfather) John and Arthur, with friends/family.

RE: Sarah, Sarah and Mary Jones
You're welcome. As for those previous edits, I had no idea that feature had been added to Find-a-Grave until another contributor emailed me over the weekend and pointed it out. I'll be keeping an eye on that from now on.

RE: Sarah, Sarah and Mary Jones

How about I just transfer them to you since they are your relations and then you can make any edits? Just remind me which Sarahs and which Mary again. Also, if there is no photo of a tombstone on the memorials it likely doesn't exist or it is one of the illegible ones. That cemetery has been pretty well covered.
