Squire Boone-81 the son of George Boone III-75 born 25 November Old Style or 6 December New S tyle, 1696, in Devonshire, England; He died 2 January, 1755 in Rowen County, North Carolina . Married 23 Sept., 1720, in Berks Co.,

Pennsylvania, to Sarah Morgan-2884 who was born in 1700; and died in 1777,

according to supposed headstone. She is the daughter of Edward Morgan, an

early settler of the Welsh colony of Gwynedd in Berks Co., Pennsylvania.

Squire Boone accompanied his elder brother and sister to America a few years

before the parents came in 1717. His marriage to Sarah Morgan is recorded in the records of the Society of Friends as follows:

Whereas, Squire Boone son of George Boone o the county of Philadelphia and Province of Pennsylvania, yeoman, and Sarah Morgan, daughter of Edward Morgan of the said county and province, having declared their intentions of marriage with each other before two monthly meetings of ye people called Quakers, held at Gwynedd in the said county, according to ye good order used among them, whose proceedings therein, after deliberate consideration, and having consent of parents an d relations concerned therein, their said proceedings as allowed of by said meeting.

After their marriage Squire and Sarah Boone first settled in Bucks County,

Pa.,, if we may accept local tradition there and the following statement which appeared i n a newspaper clipping sent to the compiler who has, however, been unable to ascertain the names of either the news paper or the writer of the article.

"Old Boone Homestead.--Finely located on rising ground, overlooking the Upper

Neshaminy, in New Britain Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, stands a fine old stone house which, though remodeled and added to by later owners, gives evidence of the age accredited to a portion of the walls. It was the eastern portion of this building, including the one-story structure and part of the main house, that was the home of Squire Boone, the father of the intrepid Kentucky pioneer, Daniel Boone, until 1730."

We are certain, however, that Squire and his family returned to Berks County (then Phila. County), and in 1730 settled on a farm in Oley township, Philadelphia County. (now Exeter township, Berks County.) not far from the homestead of his father George Boone III, both being only a few miles from the present city o f Reading. This property Squire Boone bought from Ralph Asheton of the City of Philadelphia , the twentieth day of November, 1730. Nine of their children were born on this farm, the f irst three having been born previous to the purchase of the property. A plain two-story hous e of stone now stands on the site of the original farmhouse, replacing the first log structur e. It is said that the stone foundation and cellar belonged to the log house first built b y Squire Boone.According to a contemporary, Daniel's father was a man of small stature, wit h a fair complexion, red hair, and blue-gray eyes; his mother was a large woman, strong and a ctive with dark eyes and black hair. ("Daniel Boone" by John Mack Faragher, 1992).

He had a weaving business in Exeter with five or six looms. Ibid.

Expelled by the Exeter Friends in 1748 for having allowed two of his children to marry "world lings" -- people outside the Quaker faith. Ibid.

Edward was killed by Indians while returning from the Blue Licks with his brother Daniel Boone where they had gone to make salt and do some hunting. They stopped at a stream in Bourbon County and Edward sat down on a log to watch the horses while Daniel went off in the cane in search of game. A small band of Indians shot and killed Edward. Daniel escaped, and returned the next day with men from Boone Station where they and their families were living at the time, and they buried Edward there where he had been killed. Draper letters report that in about 1827, some of Edward's bones were left exposed from flooding, and the Rev. Richard Thomas collected the bones and reburied them at the Rockbridge Baptist Church nearby.

(10) Nathaniel Boone, b. abt. 1742 (died an infant) This may be new information for some, therefore, an extensive documentation follows. The Boone Society gratefully acknowledges the research of Society member Kathryn Weiss for documenting Nathaniel Boone as a child of Squire & Sarah Morgan Boone. Here is documented her findings:

“Two independent, yet strikingly similar accounts of the children of Squire Boone, Sr. and Sarah Morgan were made in: Samuel Bryan’s 1830 History of the Bryans attached to his Revolutionary War pension; and Captain Samuel Boone’s 1855 letter to frontier historian Lyman Draper. Both Samuel Bryan and Samuel Boone were grandsons of Squire and Sarah M. Boone, and the two men (who were first cousins) were naming their Boone aunts and uncles for posterity. Both Samuel Boone and Samuel Bryan named a twelfth child, Nathaniel, for their grandparents Squire Boone, Sr. and Sarah Morgan. Samuel Bryan wrote in his brief History of the Bryans in 1830,

“William, my father comeing to the age of 22 years married Mary Boone daughter of Squire Boone the 1, and sister of Colo. Daniel Boone the explorer and settler of Kentucky. Squire Boone who was from the west of England to Pennsylvania where he maried Sarah Morgan, of welch extraction by whom he had twelve children, Eight Sons, and four daughters, which were named Sarah, Israel, Samuel, Jonathan, Elizabeth, Daniel, Mary*, George, Nathaniel, Edward, Squire, and Hannah; with his wife and these children he remov,d from Pensylvania to Rowan County in North Carolina…” (NARA:W9366)

“Captain Samuel Boone, (1782-1869) was a son of George Boone and Ann Linville. Samuel Boone wrote to Lyman Draper, Sept. 10, 1855: “Some time in the year 1717, George Boone Grandfather of the late Col. Daniel Boone came from england and Brought with him I think seven sons and settled all or the most of them in the state of pensylvania. Squire Boone one of the seven sons married Sarah Morgan and settled in Bucks County where they raised the following number of Children to wit: eight sons and four Daughters first Israel; second Samuel; third Jonathan; fourth Daniel; fifth George; sixth Nathaniel who died when young; seventh Squire; eighth Edward. Daughters: first Sarah who married a Willcox; second Elizibeth married William Grant; third Mary Bryan; fourth Hannah who married John Stewart.” (WHS: DM22C67).

Squire Boone, Sr

[Suggest a correction]

Birth: 1696, England

Death: 1765

Mocksville

Davie County

North Carolina, USA


Squire Boone, third child of George III and Mary Boone, was the father of Daniel Boone the famous frontiersman.

SQUIRE BOONE Born 25 Nov 1696 (O.S.) Devonshire, England Died 02 Jan 1765 Rowan County, North Carolina. Married Sarah Morgan 23 Sep 1720 (O.S.) Philadelphia County, PA Born 1700 Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania Died 1777 Rowan County, North Carolina.

Squire Boone's significance to this genealogy, however, is due to his influence upon his nephew John Boone in settling in North Carolina. On April 11, 1750, Squire and Sarah Morgan Boone sold their land in Berks County and left with their family, including their sixteen-year-old son Daniel, who was destined to become the most celebrated frontiersman in America. The Boones stopped for a year or more in Linville Creek, six miles north of Harrisonburg, Virginia. It was not until the late autumn of 1751, or some time in 1752, that Squire Boone and his party reached the Yadkin Valley in North Carolina. For his first home site Squire chose a hill overlooking the Yadkin River in the area which soon became a part of Rowan County but which is now in Davidson County. At the first County Court held in Salisbury in June, 1753, Squire Boone was listed as one of the fourteen justices. His residence was given as Boone's Ford. Later in that year, on December 29, Squire acquired land on the western side of the Yadkin River in what is now Davie County, but Rowan County at that time. The grant was for 640 acres on Bear Creek from the Earl of Granville.

Later in that year, on December 29, Squire acquired land on the western side of the Yadkin River in what is now Davie County, but Rowan County at that time. The grant was for 640 acres on Bear Creek from the Earl of Granville.

As indicated earlier, the primary significance of Squire Boone's migration to North Carolina, so far as these narratives are concerned, lies in the fact that he was accompanied or joined soon afterwards by his nephew John Boone, son of Benjamin and Ann Farmer Boone.
