About Joseph Boone, Sr.

Sarah Ridge Rockenfield in her book, Our Boone Families, Daniel Boone’s Kinfolks, USA Boones, gives name of wife of Joseph Boone, son of George Boone III & Mary Maugridge, as Catherine Warren. If this is true, it’s interesting that both Joseph Boone Sr. and Joseph Jr. had a wife with the same maiden name of Warren. -----------------

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~rice/master2-o/p48.htm#i2923 Joseph Boone was born on 5 April 1704 at Bradwich, England. He was the son of George Boone III and Mary Maugridge. In this source, Joseph Boone is said to have married a Catherine Brown. Joseph Boone died on 30 January 1776 at age 71. -------------------- If ANYONE has any doubts about birthdates or questions about this The Boones or family linage, PLEASE refer to the Discussion Board and check the Boone Family History and Genealogy for an actual family tree of the Boones...discussion started by Glenna Calton " ... I have copied and pasted the Actual Lineage from the Boone Family History recorded by The Boone Society." -------------------- From James Boone Genealogy:

“JOSEPH BOONE (son of George & Mary Boone) was born between 4 & 5 in the Afternoon, on the 5th of April 1704; and he departed this Life on the 30 January 1776, in the 72d Year of his Age (Berks Co, PA). His Wife Catherine died on the 31st of January 1778, and was interred at Exeter (Berks Co., PA) the next Day exactly 2 Years after the Burial of her Husband.”

Hazel Spraker, in her book, The Boone Family quotes from early Exeter (PA) Records: “8-30-1733, Joseph Boone produced a paper of condemnation for proceeding in marriage contrary to order.”

Neither Spraker nor the Old James Boone Genealogy give a last name for wife Catherine, but Sarah Ridge Rockenfield in her book, Our Boone Families, Daniel Boone’s Kinfolks, USA Boones, gives name of wife of Joseph Boone, son of George Boone III & Mary Maugridge, as Catherine Warren. If this is true, it’s interesting that both Joseph Boone Sr. and Joseph Jr. had a wife with the same surname of Warren.

Hazel Spraker lists no known children for this couple. The Boone Society has determined, however, that Joseph Boone Sr. and his wife Catherine had at least 3 sons (see Generation 5 for info on their children). Some researchers believe this couple had other children and any proof documents of other children would be welcomed.
