  • How sad that cemeteries are the targets of thugs. There should be a stiff punishment for those caught with historical plaques or markers. Those that destroy gravestones should be forced to clean up and pay for the restoration. My great-great-grandfather was a civil war doctor and his obelisk style gravestone was damaged by thugs that were never caught. Families had to pay for the restorations in the cemetery.

  • Me an' Coby got a friend and she said she was a Boone descendant as her last name was Baber. We hooted and hollered until we looked it up on the internet, and danged if she wasn't tellin' the truth. Turns out one of the Boone gals married a Baber. And danged if she can't throw a worm, too...
