 Daniel has 2 Find a Grave Memorials. I believe the one in Kentucky is a cenotaph, a memorial stone placed in remembrance. The Fag Memorial at URL

Seems to be at his burial spot. State governments are jealous beings. Kentucky may have Daniel re-interned there though. 
John Louis Akard commented on person Daniel (Daniel Morgan Boone Sr. Lt. Col. Daniel Morgan "Sheltowee" (Big Turtle) Boone Col. Colonel Daniel Morgan Boone) Boone :
 There are places in EDIT PROFILE for different parts of a name. [I call them boxes] I believe you have a bit too much in the First Name box. Most people are known by the highest military rank they reached. In his Wikipedia Page at URL

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Boone#Marriage_and_family

I could not find where he reached Col. The Spanish governor appointed Boone "syndic" (judge and jury) and commandant (military leader) of the Femme Osage district. Possibly this might have had a military rank of full Col. I think he was a Lt. Col. but have my doubts of the rank of full Col.

While he had a son named Daniel Morgan Boone, I don't see Jr. in his name. A lot of those born in Colonial days had no middle name. Wikipedia does not have either Morgan or Sr. attached to Daniel's name. If you have documentation that contradicts this, so be it.

If I were editing this profile, I would do the following;

Prefix; Lt. Col.
First Name; Daniel
Last Name; Boone
Suffix; American pioneer, explorer, woodsman, and frontiersman, Patriot
Under ADDITIONAL NAMES there are 4 more choices.
Nickname; Sheltowee (Big Turtle)

This is your site. Do what you think is proper. These are my thoughts. You and several sites shown under RESEARCH THIS PERSON, seem to agree with what you have. Since most have exactly what you have, I think this was just passed on by Instant Discovery and Smart Match Merges. Wikipedia tries to get it right but they obtain their data from secondary sources. They even warn not to enter original research when placing new Wikipedia Pages. They want everything well sourced and documented from respected references.

I hope this proves useful. Thank you for your time.

John Louis Akard commented on person <Private> Wilkerson :
 Find a Grave and the Social Security Death Index seem to think Thomas is not among the living.

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/169625393/thomas-leftwich-wilkerson

This memorial shows a photo of their tombstone and a link to his wife. Her Memorial is at URL

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/169625863/lois-wilkerson

It has the same photo, links to Thomas and her parents and one brother. There is a rather extensive Obit. It contains

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a brother, George Russell; and a dear brother-in-law, John K. Wilkerson.

Surviving are her son, Tom Wilkerson Jr. and fiancé Penny Ward of Raleigh; granddaughter Lisa Wilkerson; grandsons John Wilkerson and Jack Ward, both of Raleigh; and a sister-in-law, Mrs. John K. Wilkerson of Gaithersburg, Md.

Very interesting Obit.

 I believe you should place the variations in Thomas' name spelling in the Biographic section. The Wikipedia Page at URL

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Bryan_(Chief_Justice)

Claims that it is spelled Bryan. I also would like to see all the names in his immediate family be uniformly Bryan. Of course it;s your site. This is how I would do it if it was mine.
