The American pioneer Daniel Boone died on September 26, 1820. His original grave was near Marthasville, Missouri. However, In 1845 his remains (or so they thought) were dug up and buried in a new location in a cemetery in Frankfort, Kentucky. Boone’s family knew his tombstone was placed on the wrong grave but didn’t say anything about the reburial because they wanted him to remain in Missouri. So, Marthasville, Missouri is where he remains, supposedly.
