About Sarah Boone (Griffith)
Elizabeth Griffith was born on January 9, 1762, in Gwynedd Township, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. She was the daughter of Phinehas and Elizabeth Griffith. She died on October 6, 1821 in Exeter, Berks County, Pennsylvania and is buried at the Exeter Friends Burying Ground, Exeter Berks County.
In December, 1778, Sarah married Moses Boone, the son of James Boone and wife Mary Foulke. As she was a Welsh Baptist, this action contributed to Moses being dismissed from Exeter Monthly Meeting in 1780. This union produced four children over the next dozen years, and his eldest son John ultimately took over the family business shortly before Moses Boone’s death in 1823.
