About Sarah Boone

  • --------------------

Marriage: Nathan Boone b: 2 MAR 1781 in Boones Station, Fayette Co., Kentucky

  • Married: 26 SEP 1799 in Little Sandy, Kentucky
  • Note: marr. near present day Greenup, Ky.

Nathan was married to Olive Van Bibber (daughter of Peter VAN BIBER and Margary BOUNDS) on Sep 26 1799 in Greenbriar Co., KY. Olive VAN BIBBER was born in 1783 in Greenbriar Co., KY. She died on Nov 12 1858 in Missouri.

Son of Daniel Boone, Nathan looked after Daniel in his golden years. He married Olive Van Bibber as they joined Daniel in opening up Missouri after Kentucky had "become too crowed".

Nathan and Olive settled in the St. Charles, MO area until after the death of Daniel. After posting bond for a local politician who skipped town, Nathan joined the army based on financial need. Nathan was posted in Iowa, Kansas, and the New Indian Territory, later called Oklahoma. He moved his family to the Ashgrove, Missouri area just outside Springfield to be closer to his post.
