Daniel Boone was buried in the Bryan family cemetery at Marthasville, Missouri (Charette, Louisiana Territory) in 1820, where his wife, Rebecca (Bryan) Boone, had been buried seven years earlier.
DIED: On Tuesday 26th at Charette village, in the 90th year of his age, the celebrated Col. Daniel Boon, discoverer and first settler of the state of Kentucky. He was buried at the Charette village, and thus the remains of the man whose name is identified with that of Kentucky, now repose on the banks of Missouri.

The Friends of Daniel Boone's Burial Site in Missouri is a non-profit 501C.3 organization, located in Marthasville, Missouri. The group is devoted to historical preservation, focused primarily on the Bryan (Boone) Cemetery. We have been appointed by the county as caretakers of the historic cemetery.
There is a great need to upgrade the site and make it a more fitting memorial to one of our nation's most beloved heroes.
The Friends of Daniel Boone's Burial Site in Missouri was founded for that reason.
Your help, no matter how small, is much appreciated.
