Submitted by Georgina Gaddis, May 17, 2003 [danielgaddis@comcast.net]. Total records = 7.

Directions: PA Turnpike, take exit #22 (Morgantown), follow Rte 176 North to Rte 422 East, Daniel Boone Homestead entrance is about half a mile on your left. Once you enter Daniel Boone Homestead, just follow the signs to the Visitor Center. Here you can get a map of the homestead, which has the cemetery marked.

Since 1938 the Daniel Boone Homestead has been a state-owned historic site, taken care by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. John and his brother Samuel brought the 256 acres homestead in 1770 and it was John who made the cemetery on his side of the property.

Several members of the John and Samuel De Turk families are buried in the cemetery. The two stones indicate the graves of John and Samuel. John De Turk owned the Boone House from 1770 -1808 and Samuel built the farmhouse near the site entrance in 1812.

I walked this cemetery and compiled these records on Apr 04, 2003.
