D Boon was here - clipping from an old Adair County News

2016-11-15 - Tabor community, Adair County, KY - Photo from the collection of Adair County Historian Mike Watson.
"The Adair County News photo of the 'D Boon 1771' tree that accompanied the beech section was made in October 1961 and appeared in the October 18th issue. It shows Mr. Leslie Johnson, close neighbor, and Mr. Sam Suddarth, President of the Adair Historical Society, standing beside the tree. The inscription had been highlighted with chalk to aid the photographer. At that time Mr. Johnson, then aged 93 years and a life-long resident, stated he had heard since childhood of the 'Boone Tree' from older men and they declared it had been there, they believed and were taught, from pioneer days." - MIKE WATSON
