(Reprinted, Genealogical Publishing, Baltimore, MD. 1974)
p61: "Elizabeth Boone (Squire; George), born 5 Feb., 1732 (Old Time) or 16 Feb., 1732 (New
Time) in Berks County, Pennsylvania; died 25 Feb., 1825, in Kentucky. (Other dates given as
5 Feb., 1814 & '15.) Married about 1750 on the Yadkin River in North Carolina to William Grant
(b. 1726; d. 22 Jan., 1804, at the age of 78, in Fayette County, Ky.) William Grant was the son of
a Scotch father, also William Grant, and an Irish mother, Margaret Venner. He was born and
raised in the Scotch Highlands, imbibing a great love for his country and a desire for her
independence from English sovereignty. Knowing this, it is not surprising to find him taking
part in the Rebellion of 1745-46, in which it is said he served under Prince "Charlie." Following
the defeat of the Scottish army at the Battle of Culloden 16 April, 1746 (which sealed the fate of
the house of Stuart and its supporters), Grant emigrated to America and located in the Yadkin
country, where a great many others of the Pretender's adherents settled. Here he met and
married, about 1750, Elizabeth Boone, and here too all their children with the exception of
William were born."
