Descendants of Squire Boone

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

1.  SQUIRE14 BOONE  (GEORGE13, GEORGE12, GEORGE11, GEORGE BOONE10 JR., GEORGE9 BOONE, GREGORY8 BOHUN, GEFFREY BOHUN7 JR., GEFFREY BOHUM6 SR., JOHN5 BOHUM, JOHN4 DE BOHUN, JAMES3, JOHN2, FRANCO1 BOHUN) was born Nov 25, 1696 in Brandninch, Devonshire-Exeter, England, and died Jan 02, 1765 in Forks Of The Yadkin, Rowan County , now Davie, North Carolina.  He married SARAH MORGAN Jul 23, 1720 in Gwynedd Meeting House, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, daughter of EDWARD MORGAN and ELIZABETH JARMAN.  She was born 1700 in Towamencin Township., Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, and died Jan 01, 1777 in Rowan County, North Carolina.

 

Notes for SQUIRE BOONE:

Squire Boone, son of George Boone, III, was born 25 November (old style calendar) or 6 December (new style), 1696 in Devonshire, England.

 

Squire had a ruddy complexion, red hair and light blue eyes.

 

A short distance from his father's homestead, Squire Boone, built a log cabin around a large stone fireplace. Later he built a large stone house around the same fireplace. Squire and Sarah had a total of 11 children that we know about. It was here on this homestead in Berks County, Pennsylvania, that Daniel Boone was born to Squire and Sarah (Morgan) Boone on 22 October 1734, and where he lived until he was about 16 years old.

 

The births of their first 9 children are recorded in Exeter Monthly Meeting records as;

 

Sarah: 4 mo. 7, 1724  [07 Jun 1724]

Israel: 3 mo. 9, 1726  [09 May 1726]

Samuel: 3 mo. 20, 1728 [20 May 1728]

Jonathan: 10 mo. 6, 1730 [06 Dec 1730]

Elizabeth: 12 mo. 5, 1732 [05 Feb 1732]

Daniel: 8 mo. 22, 1734 [22 Oct 1734]

Mary: 9 mo. 3, 1736 [03 Nov 1736]

George: 11 mo. 2, 1739 [02 Jan 1739]

Edward: 9 mo. 19, 1740 [19 Nov 1740]

 

[Compilations of Quaker records have since included births of the other two children, Squire Jr. and Hannah.]

 

Quaker records are based on the Old Style calendar. Daniel Boone never adapted to the change to the "new calendar" because his mother never approved of it, and always insisted he was born on 22 October 1734 even though by the more modern calendar, his birthdate is recorded as 2 November 1734.

 

It was probably a combination of events that convinced Squire Boone that it was time to move. Things were not going well with the church. He had been 'scolded' several times for events in the lives of his children. He had seen how the church had treated his parents in the same way for basically the same reasons. It didn't take long before he was thinking that they were getting to be just a little too nosy and controlling. He didn't like the way they were always telling him how to raise his children. Also the Indians were causing a lot of people in the Berks County area to move further southward to escape trouble or rumors of trouble. In any event, in 1750 Squire moved his family to the Yadkin River valley of North Carolina. He received a land grant there dated 1753 [See Map]. There is no record that they ever united with The Society of Friends in North Carolina and many of their children became Baptists.

 

About 1748 Morgan Bryan and his wife, Martha (Strode) Bryan had moved with their family to the Yadkin River valley from Virginia. The Boones became their neighbors. One of Morgan Boone's sons was Joseph Bryan. Joseph had a daughter named Rebecca Bryan. On 14 August 1756, Daniel Boone and Rebecca Bryan were married in a triple wedding ceremony (three couples were married at the same time.) The ceremony was performed by the father of the groom, Squire Boone, who was a Justice of the Peace at that time.

 

Squire and Sarah (Morgan) Boone continued to live in the Yadkin River area until their deaths. They are buried at the old Joppa Cemetery at Mocksville in Davie County, North Carolina. Their gravestones are still standing, having been encased in brick to prevent souvenir collectors from damaging them. The inscription on Squire's headstone reads;

 

"Squire Boone departed this life they sixty-ninth year

of his age in they year of our Lord 1765, Geneary Tha 2"

 

Sarah's headstone reads; (It has some damage)

 

"Sa ... Boone desowned this life 1777, aged 77 years."

 

For a number of years Daniel and Rebecca lived in the area of Bryan's Settlement in or around the Yadkin River valley of Rowan County, North Carolina. In September, 1773, with six families and forty men, Daniel Boone left North Carolina headed to Kentucky. They did not succeed. After Indians attacked and killed Daniel's and Rebecca's oldest son, James and his friend, the settlers turned back. Daniel took his family to Fort Blackmore on the Clinch River in Virginia where they lived for about two years while Daniel and some others cut the Wilderness Road and started building Fort Boonesborough on the Kentucky River. At that point Daniel returned to Virginia and brought Rebecca and the children to Kentucky. What lay ahead for them would take all the courage and fortitude that they could muster, but muster it they did. These Boones seem to have been set on a journey of hardship and pain from the time they were born, but through it all, they remained a family and that never changed. They were by all accounts, a kind, caring and decent people of whom all their many descendants living today can be very proud.

2.  SARAH CASSANDRA15 BOONE (SQUIRE14, GEORGE13, GEORGE12, GEORGE11, GEORGE BOONE10 JR., GEORGE9 BOONE, GREGORY8 BOHUN, GEFFREY BOHUN7 JR., GEFFREY BOHUM6 SR., JOHN5 BOHUM, JOHN4 DE BOHUN, JAMES3, JOHN2, FRANCO1 BOHUN) was born Jun 17, 1724 in Neshaminy Creek, Chalfont, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and died 1815 in Estill, Madison County, Kentucky.  She married JOHN WILCOXSON May 29, 1742 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, son of DANIEL WILCOXSON and ELIZABETH POWELL.  He was born Sep 06, 1720 in Berks County, Pennsylvania, and died Feb 03, 1782 in Bryan Station, Fayette County, Virginia (now Kentucky)..

 

Notes for SARAH CASSANDRA BOONE:

From THE BOONE FAMILY by Hazel Atterbury Sprater The Boones were Quakers and John Wilcoxson was not. The Church notes say that they treated her for marrying out and her father was spoken to by members of the Church. Her father was chastised by the Quaker church for letting her marry a non member and he apologized and said that he would be more care in the future. Friends church records 5-29-1742 ", Sarah daughter. of Squire Boone, treated with for marrying out " Another says Sarah Boone out of th Unity with Friends ( first offense of this kind ). Friends appointed to speak to the father, Squire Boone.. the same day Squire Boone declareth he did not countenance or consent to the marriage but confesseth himself in fault in keeping them in his house after their keeping company but that he was in great streight in not knowing what to do and hopeth to be more careful for the future. --------------------------------------------------------------- This is not an error as her niece, Sarah Boone, daughter of Squire Jr. also married a John Wilcoxson who is our direct line. The two are easily confused. I confirmed this by several sources. ----------------------------------------------------------------- From SQUIRE BOONE AND HIS DESCENDANTS. Sarah Boone daughter of Squire and Sarah Morgan Boone born 7 June 1724 near Chalfont, New Britain Twp, Bucks Co. Pa. Married at Exeter Pa. 29 May 1742 a non-quaker, John Wilcoxson, born 1720 Berks Co. They went to N.C. when her parents moved there. They lived in Coolumee, Davie Co. N.C. Then they went to Ky. when her brother, Daniel Boone, and the others went to Ky. ( Abt 1779 ) ----------------------------------------------------------------- From notes of Linda Jean Thompson Ryan - well documented Sahar Boone maried John Wilcoxson in 1742. The Boones were quakers and evidently John Wilcoxson was not since Sarah was Condemned for marrying out. Sarah's marriage ( and also the fact that her first child was born suspiciously soon after the marriage ceremony ) added further strain to the already stretched relationship between Squire's family and their Quaker society. Soon, Squire moved his family from Penn to N.C. Sarah and her husband migrated with the rest of the family.. They had eleven children ----------------------------------------------------------------- From WILCOXSON AND ALLIED FAMILIES by Wulfeck Treated with for marrying out - friends appointed to speak to father, Squire Boone.. John and Sarah went to N.C, about 1855 and appeared on the first tax list in 1759 in 1778 - 1782 and census of 1787

 

Notes for JOHN WILCOXSON:

From SQUIRE BOONE AND HIS DESCENDANTS Pg 357 He was not a Quaker so caused a lot of trouble when he married Sarah. He was killed by an Indian near Lexington, Ky close to Bryan Station 3 Feb 1782 ---------------------------------------------------------------- From WILLCOKSON AND ALLIED FAMILIES by Wulfeck In the Yadkin Valley be made security in a law suit where Samuel Hall sued George Wilcocks. He was constable in Rowan Co. N.C. before 1763 Descendants have joined DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION on the services of John Wilcokson as an Indian fighter. -----------------------------------------------------------------

From THE BOONE FAMILY by Hael Atterbury Sprater. It was said that this John Wilcoxson was killed by Indians in 1782 but there is no confirmation

---------------------------------------------------------------

From THE MAKISSICK TIES TO DANIEL BOONE The Boones were Quakers and evidently John Wilsoxson was not since Sarah was CONDEMNED for MARRYING OUT. Sarah's marriage ( and also the fact that her first child was born suspiciously soon after the marriage cerimony) added further strains between the Boones and the Quaker Society.

Notes for BENJAMIN CUTBIRTH SR.:

From LIFE OF DANIEL BOONE by R.G. Thwaites " at the close of the French and Indian War there arrived in the Boone settlement a Scotch-Irishman named Benjamin Cutbirth aged abot twenty-three years. H was a man of good character and a fine hunter. Marrying Elizabeth Wilcoxson, a niece of Daniel Boone, he and Boone went on long hunts together, and attained that degree of companionship which joint life in a wilderseess camp is almost a certain product." Benjamin Cutbirth was somewhat famous not only for his friendship with Daniel Boone, but for several other reasons as well. In 1767, he and three other me were the first white men to travel overland from the East to the Mississippi River. Also, Benjamin lived for a time in Boone's first settlement in Kentucky after helping Daniel Boone cut the wilderness. -----------------------------------------------------------------

Dec 13, 1747 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.  She was born 1728 in Oley Township, Berk County, Pennsylvania, and died 1754 in Dutchman's Creek, Rowan now Davie County, North Carolina.

 

Notes for ISRAEL BOONE:

It is said Israel married an Indian lady and this is somewhat a rumor, as he married in Pennsylvania, and left Pennsylvania with his father , mother, and family to settle in North Carolina . Quaker records indicate their marriage was December 13, 1747 in Exeter Township, Barks County Pennsylvania. It is known and recorded that Squire and Sarah were reprimanded shortly after his marriage for letting him associate with a non-Quaker and marrying outside the church. Shortly thereafter Squire, Sarah and family left Pennsylvania  in 1750

 

Church records from the monthly meeting "I have heard that Squire and Sarah and family were excommunicated for refusing to apologize in public for their children's non Quaker marriages. I have no papers to show this and have not ordered the records of the monthly meetings as yet. Most people seem to believe this. Israel Boone died in N.C. when about thirty years old, from consumption, as did his wife sometime earlier.

 

The Moravians made their first settlement near Winston Salem, North Carolina in 1753. This was only about twenty miles from the Boone and Bryan Settlements on the Yadkin. In the first group of settlers was a young doctor, Hans Martin Kalberlahn, who had obtained all the medical education available at that period and in proficiency, was fifty or more so years ahead of his time. These Moravians kept careful diaries, recording the happenings of each day. The diary for 1755 contains the following entry.

 

August 26,1755 A consumptive by the name of Boone came with his mother and asked to remain for treatment and we could not refuse. We lodged him in the old house. September 01, the consumptive was taken home by his brother, who came for him last evening. He, Mr. Boone, returned on the 6th accompanied by his father, who remained overnight. On the 15th his brother came for him once more and he left there being small hope of his recovery. From Moravian Records Vol 1

 

It has been said Israel and Martha Boone were buried at the Burying Ridge, as this Cemetery was first named, and that is why Squire and Sarah chose this place to be buried also.

 

Jonathan, was six years old and his brother Jesse eight, in 1756, when his father and Mother died from tuberculosis. The two sisters Elizabeth and Sarah Sally Boone were four and two years old. Jonathan and his brother Jesse then lived with their uncle and aunt Daniel and Rebecca Boone. Jonathan's grandfather Squire Boone, died when Jonathan was fifteen years old, in 1765.

Notes for JESSE BOONE:

There is a bit of tradition that has been, at times, confusing to writers of Boone history, the statement that Jesse Boone was either the grandfather, or father of Judge Ratliff Boone, who was governor of Indiana in 1822. It seems that Ratliff's parents were a Jesse Boone and his wife Kessiah, who emigrated from Georgia to Kentucky when Ratliff was a boy. There is no proof and records to indicate such but one is to believe he is from the Squire Boone line." Descendants of Israel Boone" by Alice H. Boone.....Jesse Boone was a son of Israel Boone, he was mostly raised by Daniel Boone and his wife Daniel had only married two months when Israel died, Mrs. Sarah Henderson (Jesse granddaughter) he lived in Daniel Boone family. He was about five feet and eight to ten inches tall. He first entered land in Burke County, N.C. in 1777 and by 1801 he had entered four tracts. Jesse Boone raised his family of eight children in Burke Co. but after 1810 he moved to the Watauga territory, settling near Coffey's Gap

 

He was an active member in the church, having been chosen clerk and deacon at different times in the old Yadkin Baptist Church in Burke County. He joined the Church in Watauga, the minutes of this church contain many entry's concerning the Boone's. After several Controversies with the Three Forks Church , Jesse was said to have been excommunicated because of a remark he had made.

4.  COLONEL DANIEL15 BOONE (SQUIRE14, GEORGE13, GEORGE12, GEORGE11, GEORGE BOONE10 JR., GEORGE9 BOONE, GREGORY8 BOHUN, GEFFREY BOHUN7 JR., GEFFREY BOHUM6 SR., JOHN5 BOHUM, JOHN4 DE BOHUN, JAMES3, JOHN2, FRANCO1 BOHUN) was born Oct 22, 1734 in Exeter Township, Berks CountyPennsylvania, and died Sep 26, 1820 in Charritte Village, St. Charles County, Missouri.  He married REBECCA ANN BRYAN Aug 14, 1756 in Yadkinville, Yadkin County,  North Carolina.  She was born Jan 09, 1738 in Gwynedd, Montgomery Township, Berks CountyPennsylvania, and died Mar 18, 1813 in St. Charles County, Missouri.

 

Notes for COLONEL DANIEL BOONE:

The name Daniel Boone will forever be synonymous with the saga of the American frontier. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Boone was the inveterate wayfarer who achieved lasting fame guiding land-hungry settlers to the Kentucky frontier and fighting to defend them against Indian attack.

Boone was born November 2, 1734, in the log farmhouse that evolved into - and was replaced by - the main house of the Daniel Boone Homestead, situated east of Reading in Berks County.

Daniel's father, Squire Boone, was an English Quaker born in Devonshire in 1696. While still a youth, Squire, his brother George and sister Sarah embarked for Philadelphia to appraise the possibilities of settlement for their father's family, who immigrated finally in 1717.

Squire settled first in Abington, then moved to Gwynedd, where he met Sarah Morgan, born in 1700 to Welsh Quakers. Married in 1720, they lived first near Gwynedd, then in Chalfont, Bucks County, before purchasing 250 acres of the Homestead in 1730. Squire's father and brothers also lived in the area and became prominent in business, local government and the Friends Meeting.

Daniel was the sixth child, one of eleven, born to Squire and Sarah. Although little is known of Daniel's Pennsylvania years, he undoubtedly helped his father as farmer, weaver and blacksmith and had the usual experiences of a boy growing up in the back country.

In 1750 Squire and Sarah joined the growing southward movement of Pennsylvanians, and concluded their long trek in the Yadkin Valley of North Carolina. While their principal motive may have been economic, it is also a fact that Squire had been "read out of Meeting" by the Exeter Friends in 1748 for his unrepentance in allowing his son Israel to marry a non-Quaker.

Daniel was then only 15 1/2 years old, but ahead was a life filled with the rigors of the American frontier. In 1756 he married Rebecca Bryan and with her - when he was home - raised ten children. In 1773 he failed in his first attempt to settle Kentucky, but in 1775 he succeeded in establishing Boonesborough. Between 1775 and 1783 Daniel Boone was a leader among settlers in opening new parts of Kentucky and in resisting Indian raids. Although Boone lost two sons and a brother in the fighting, he was merciful and compassionate toward his native adversaries.

Twice, Boone returned to visit his boyhood home - in 1781 and in 1788 - a hero and legend in his day. Though his legend grew, his finances languished. Beset by creditors and personal disillusion, Boone finally left Kentucky in 1799 for Missouri, where he died near St. Louis on September 26, 1820.

In Pennsylvania, Daniel's boyhood home changed to reflect the growth, prosperity and cultural diversity of eastern Berks County. William Maugridge purchased the property from Squire in 1750. An Englishman who was related to the Boones (though not himself a Quaker), he served Berks County as a judge from its establishment in 1752 until his death in 1766. In 1770 John DeTurk, a Pennsylvania German, purchased the property and prospered there until he died in 1808.

Since 1938 the Daniel Boone Homestead has been a state-owned historic site,

administered by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. It includes 579 acres of land, seven eighteenth-century structures, a lake, picnic areas and other recreational facilities. The site interprets the lives of the Boone, Maugridge and DeTurk families through exhibits, programs, tours and publications. The site also serves as a wildlife refuge, where visitors may enjoy numerous species of animals and birds.

Death of Edward Boone

 

Letter to an unknown doctor

from Nathan Boone

 

Fort Leavenworth, Missouri

March 17, 1842

 

Dear Doctor:

 

Agreeable to my promise I send you the knife of my father, Col. Daniel Boone, which you are at perfect liberty to dispose of as you may think proper.

 

In the fall of 1780, my father, Daniel Boone, and his brother Edward, left their post for the purpose of hunting buffalo. After procuring as much meat as they could pack upon their horses, they set out on their return home and came to a large deer lick near the bank of a creek at which to rest themselves. They were scarcely seated on the bank when a deer walked into the lick. Edward Boone shot it down and dragged it into the shade, where my father sat cracking walnuts. Just at that moment a party of Indians fired upon them from a neighboring canebrake. Edward fell dead; my father, Daniel Boone, sprang to his horse and attempted to throw off the load from his horse which he did not affect, for the Indians rushed out so suddenly that he was compelled to take to immediate flight on foot. In the bustle he lost his knife. Finding himself closely followed by the savages, he entered a canebrake, which concealed him from their sight; they then pursued him with their dogs, and it was not until he killed two of these that the Indians abandoned the chase. The knife remained lost until the summer of 1822, at which time some persons drawing a seine in the creek brought it up from the bottom, immediately at the lick alluded to. This creek and lick are in Clark County, Kentucky. From the time of the encounter I have described to you, in which my Uncle Edward lost his life, they have been known by the name of Boone's Lick and Boone's Creek.

 

Very respectfully yours,

N. Boone, Capt., 1st Dragoons

Notes for JONATHAN BOONE:

In 1791 Jonathan Boone was ordained a deacon in the Yadkin Baptist Church with James Coffey as elders. In November 1800 Jesse and Jonathan Boone were appointed to a committee to build a new meeting house. The records are said to still exist and part of them are in the beautiful scroll of Jonathan Boone.

 

Jonathan and Susannah are buried in the Kincaid Cemetery near Lenoir, North Carolina

 

I quote Dr. Hodges, in his book on Jesse Boone, saying, Jonathan Boone brother of Jesse Boone, was grand father of Reverend N L Clark of Mississippi, and of A T LittleJohn of Caldwell County, North Carolina Jonathan entered land in Burke County, North Carolina in 1779,and by 1805 had entered five tracts of land on Mulberry Creek and waters thereof. Jonathan and his brother Jesse moved to what was then Burke County now Caldwell County, about 1777. This is about the same time Sarah their Grandmother Boone died. From records that I have seen it looks like Jesse and Jonathan Boone spent their childhood with Sarah Boone and Squire. There is as yet no evidence that either served in the Revolutionary War.

 

The will of Jonathan Boone was presented for probate October 1826, by David Rader: Witness qualifying Executors were John Boon and James Fleming.

 

1800 Census Yancey County, North Carolina lists Jonathan as being married and having one male

 

age 45 +(Himself), One female 45+(Wife Susannah), one female 16-26 Rachel presumed now is age 23, Thomas their first son not being on the census was age26 and not living at home, one female 10-16, three male boys one 16-26, 5-10, one 10-1

 

the Census taker made many mistakes in this time frame or rather the individuals did not know their actual birth date. A time frame of ten years on the next Census would only show the individual as five years older.
