Please help to save the Smith/Davis Cemetery where Boone Scholl is buried as well as the ladies who died in the Jail Collapse which as you know was one reason for the retaliation Raid on Lawrence, Kansas. Compatriot Claiborne Nappier has found the last remaining headstone, which was taken from this cemetery and is planning on having it returned. Claiborne would like to have some sort of ceremony donations would be greatly appreciated to help us restore the cemetery. Neil Block is helping with a government replacement stone for Boone Scholl. The cemetery will most certainly cease to exist unless we are able to gather enough money to secure that site.  This being private property a Confederate Battle Flag could be Flown over the entrance without worry of them being disturbed by the local politicians. Please consider donating anything you can spare to this noble cause, these are very well documented Missouri Confederate soldiers and deserve our highest regards.
