There is an existing profile for a John William Alonzo Boone, but since you did not give dates or locations, I am not sure if it is the one you are looking for. I suggest you take a look at it and contact the profile manager if you think this is your great grandfather.

Just an FYI, as the manager of that profile I checked it out and everything I know about him is on the profile but I will keep looking.
I noticed that you were manager for the profile Dale. What I am still curious about is whether he might be the person Cynthia is looking for. Difficult to know for certain as she has not yet responded to any of the questions or answers that folks have added to her post.
Lynda, I did some work on that profile yesterday and based on the name she gave I suspect she has something confused. Martha Jane Merchant was the mother of John William Alonzo Boone and nit his wife, that is if these are the profiles in question. Everything else fits as the father of John was a Great Grand Nephew of Daniel Boone.
Thanks Dale, I thought that might be the case, which was why I tried to direct her to the profile you manage as a starting point for further investigation. Still not sure if Cynthia is reading any of these responses though. I hope she finds them and gets back to us about whether the work you are doing is going to clarify things for her.

Just going by the Great Grand Mothers name I think you are looking for the profiles for Boone-1455 Alonzo Boone and Merchant-791 Martha Merchant. Both need a lot of work at this time but I will work on them as soon as possible.
