About Israel Morgan Boone

Squire Boone was expelled from the "Friends" meeting because Israel married a wordling. -------------------- Buried in Mocksville Cemetery, Rowan County, NC -------------------- Israel and his wife had four children, the two daughters died young. The two sons went to Kentrucky probably in 1779. --------------------

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.
