 e-mail for David Shannon

The following information was provided by Cynthia Bishop & Robert "Joe" Whitsitt Bishop to be passed along on this site to help those families interested in researching the Frakes family. Several of which are buried at the Old Union Christian Church Cemetery. I have taken the liberty of highlighting the information that pertains to this cemetery.

It is interesting to note that Eliza Jane Boone Frakes was the great-niece of Kentucky pioneer Daniel Boone. As can be seen below Eliza was the daughter of James Boone. James' father was Jonathan Boone who was a brother of Daniel and of Squire Boone, Jr.

Thanks to Joe and Cynthia for providing this information.
