Body lost or destroyed, Specifically: Possibly buried in Boonesborough John was killed by either Native Americans or by animals while out on a hunt with Daniel Boone after he left their campsite. His body was found several years later in a tree and allegedly taken to Fort Boonesboro and formally laid to rest. Currently, there is a fundraiser to purchase a permanent marker near where his body was found, near Red Castle. Also an epitaph may be erected if more solid information exists about where he was actually buried. If you would like to donate, please contact Sam or Carolyn Compton at the Boone Society via Thank you John and Hannah had 4 known daughters, Sarah (Stewart) Osborn 1765-1815 (#191045547), Mary (Stewart) Osborn 1766-1832, Rachel (Stewart) King 1768-1853, and Ann Elizabeth (Or Elizabeth Ann) (Stewart) Lewis 1770-1848 (191475401). Ann Elizabeth was buried at the Elliot Farm in Platte City, Platte County, Missouri in July 1848, and her husband James Lewis was buried near her in June 1860. The farm was covered over by the current airport and the graveyard is forever lost. Per the Jackson County Annals. I will create another memorial page for my grandmother and hope that it remains open. Also, a marker has been placed for John Stewart, though I do not have any more information or pictures at this time.
