Daniel Boone's Parents; Squire & Sarah Boone

Too many same names

In much of the information I researched there seems to be confusion because Daniel Boone’s father, Squire Boone had a sister named Sarah the same name as his wife and a son named Squire, the same as him and they also had a daughter Sarah.

We found Squire and Sarah’s grave-site not long after moving south and it is strange that their burial place was at least twenty miles from where they were said to have lived and owned land. The graveyard was very beautiful and there were some beautiful stones with beautiful poetry. Since then though it is a shame the condition this town in Davie County has let the cemetery get in. It now has many broken stones and is just a shambles really. The tall ancient looking stones with beautiful unusual sayings (poetry and almost stories) are completely shattered or gone and it has been this way now for about the last ten years as we return to check on it, from time to time. They repaired the Squire and Sarah Boone's grave-site they have said.

Possibly they had a cage around it before it was bricked, but that would have been many years ago. I just know this graveyard at one time was such a treasure and piece of history and visiting grave-sites all up and down the east coast and very many in this one county and town; I had never seen such beautiful writings. I cannot imagine why anyone would want to destroy them.

Coming to America

Squire Boone came to America in 1713 when he was only eighteen with a brother and a sister, sent by their father, George Boone of the town of Bradninch, near Exeter, England. They were members of the Society of Friends, and went to the town of Abington, twelve miles north of Philadelphia; according to the book, "Daniel Boone" by John Mack Faragher; in 1992.

Squire Boone was an English Quaker born in Devonshire, England in 1696. He met Sarah Morgan in Gwynedd, born in 1700 to Welsh Quakers. They were married in 1720 and lived first near Gwynedd, then in Chalfont, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. They purchased 250 acres of the Homestead in 1730. Squire's father and brothers also lived in the area and became well-known in business, local government and the Friends Meeting.

Glad this beautiful stone has made it as well as it has.

The Boones moved

They moved to Bucks County, Pa, where some of their children
were born. They had seven sons and four daughters, in the order
of their birth; Sarah, Israel, Samuel, Jonathan, Elizabeth, Daniel, Mary, George, Edward, Squire and Hannah. Squire Boone moved his family May 1, 1750 to the banks of the Yadkin River in Davidson (then Rowan) county, North Carolina. Squire Boone died in 1765; his wife in 1777, at the age of 77. Her maiden name was Morgan. They are buried in Joppa cemetery, Davie County, North Carolina.

Out of eleven children, Daniel was their sixth child. In 1750 Squire and Sarah joined the southward movement of Pennsylvanians, and stopped to live in the Yadkin Valley of North Carolina. The move may have been economic, but also Squire had been "Read out of Meeting" by the Exeter Friends in 1748 for allowing his son Israel to marry a non-Quaker.

From material I researched a few years ago he or his son Squire one became a Baptist preacher, sounding as if the whole family quit the Quaker faith.

Video of Sarah and Squire Boone's Gravesite

Father, Mother and Son


They both lie buried in the old Joppa cemetery in Davie County, N. C. where their original gravestones use to stand. Because of the damage caused by souvenir hunters, the stones have now been bricked over as a protection from further vandalism. The inscription on Squire Boone's headstone reads as follows: "Squire Boone departed this life the sixty-ninth year of his age in the year of our Lord 1765.


On the headstone which is supposed to be that of Squire Boone's wife, only the first two letters of the word Sarah are legible. The inscription reads as follows: "Sa.. ..Boone disowned this life 1777, aged 77 years. So when it was fixed as you can see they only put the Sah + Boone. Who do they pick out to make these decisions? I know they have her name there but still to put it on down below there the way they found it after being vandalized and even at that they said it was only Sa. If they could add an h why not the rest? Why h even, why not r? Sarah? I have spent my life trying to figure out such things and people. I bet I could never be smart enough to have their job. Tell me you don't feel that way sometimes?

Another question mark goes up too. Why do you change from Quaker to Baptist in the 1700's. What did the Baptists have that made Quaker look bad? Don't you wonder? Out in the middle of no man's land and two families really, since Sarah, Squire's wife was from a family of Quakers too, and probably all of Squire's children and spouses change over too. Something I read let me know some of his children did; so probably all. Maybe someone is smart enough to hub that one someday. I don't really care that much, but I do wonder.

I have yet to find the best pictures I have but I will include what pictures I have including some of the best views of the graveyard. I possibly didn't have a digital when we first found it. When I go again I will take the awful pictures. In front of this old graveyard is a newer graveyard people are being buried in today and it looks nice. It is really shameful for a city or county, whichever is responsible to have let this happen. Now, I would say there are many graves with no way of knowing who is buried there. This grave-site is so historic though, why would a town not take advantage of that or at least not let it say what it does about them to just keep letting it go? Apparently they are selling grave plots, surely that would cover cost of upkeep on a historic sight.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Squire Boone Jr. < I found this most interesting. After we found the grave-site of the parents I did some investigating and read a couple of books at the library that Daniel went on to Kentucky and some of this information was in that. I usually pass near Yadkinville to visit my granddaughter's grave, I think I will stop there and see if I can find out anything about where the Boone's lived and see if there is something interesting there.

Degradation of beautiful gravestones

Here is just a few showing the awful condition and neglect. There are many large stones knocked off their base, cracked and broken and they have been laying this way for years. Inside the Boone part grass is high and looks to not have been cut this year. Even ones outside you can see one broken off and another smashed to bits and this is in view of the main highway. I took my mom there in 2002 and it was like this before that. The ones in back with lovely poetry I cannot show you a trace of; being completely gone!

Wow, that's great. You should write or call these people and ask them about letting such a historic sight be destroyed. Eventually some idiots will probably dig up the graves and I doubt the town would even know it. Surely no one is looking at it.

Hey Polly. Actually there are no descendants -directly of Daniel Boone- but for a man in Asheville named Daniel Boone. He is the last descendant -directly- of Daniel. He has no children and the lineage of Daniel will come to an end. This is from Daniel Boone of Daniel Boone Motors (I think that's the name of his business). I have a picture of him running the Charlotte Marathon. This is the word of Daniel Boone and I've not yet found his statement in refute. I've met many people who have descended from Daniel's siblings. A Chris Boone is very soon setting the "cross state record by bicycle" across NC. This will be from Murphy to Manteo. Te record was set many years ago and will be re-set by Chris Boone. No doubt about it. Only an act of God will prevent it. Chris Boone holds the record for the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Blue Ridge Parkway is 469 miles and Chris reset that record by a couple hours-29 hours and change. Thank you Ma'am.

Interesting hub Polly. It's amazing how many states lay claim to Daniel Boone. There is a Daniel Boone National Park not far from where I live that I've visited. It has a homestead on it that is claimed to have been living quarters of Daniel - but it was probably only used when journeying between NC and KY. Thanks for finding and sharing all the historical data, it was very interesting.

That sounds feasible Allan, seems I read it was in Kentucky there was a scuffle with some men, maybe not even Indian and it was the last he saw of one of his brothers. I guess you call all that bravery, sounds stupid to me and I am not big on history, but he did live in the Yadkin River area awhile I know, probably found it and brought his parents to it. I saw part of the river that flows through more than one county and it was gushing and muddy, really scary looking.

Well I added a couple bad ones and I have plenty more but they have let it go too long I think, but I think what names they can make out deserve new stones since they are the ones who failed to do anything to prevent this and then let it get even worse.

Bet you have been busy working on whatever it is they are doing here this month? I don't even know what it is but I have got to get stuff together for my site and it is a mess trying to figure what goes first and all the pictures etc. Be glad when its up though.

I really don't know facts about Daniel B. Just what I heard. And what I think the D. Boone meant, when he passed that tid-bit on to me, was that no "male" descendants carrying the Boone name directly down from DB. But it's all a moot point. I have no idea. Another hub maybe.

I was sure you were kidding, who really cares anyway, huh. He was a brave idiot, he wasn't God. I guess maybe God may have helped them along but who can say there either. I don't look back at people or even up to people now because they are stars, they would have none become rich if all were like me. It was surprising is all to come upon this burial sight and know a town I am sure has money let the only thing they could be known for besides Mexicans let this happen and wait so long to fix it, if they ever do,they haven't in ten years, why now, and I am sure they can't replace stolen or destroyed stones. Women have to plant their little pansies though like that is so important.

Yes there are descendants of Daniel Boone, and that is interesting someone would bother to say that lol. Anyway, I traced my ancestry back on several sides of my family, and anyone that wants refute it, their problem, not mine. I am a very diverse person with ancestry from all over the world, and have no flattery whatsoever in claiming him as my ancestor. Just so people know there are quite a few descendants of Daniel Boone living, and many of them went with him on the Cumberland trail to Missouri.

Pollyannalana 6 years ago from US Author

I am sure Micky meant no offense, you never know when he is kidding or not I am sure he meant nothing and as for the Quaker remark it was a question in my mind, apparently there was a reason and I wonder what is was. I wonder a lot as I am sure my friends can tell you, when I stop I will be dead I guess.What is the harm in that? As many children as they had, eleven noted and maybe more I am sure there are some Boone's out there yet, personally I have a Davie Crockett in my family, deceased now.

Oh, I have no idea what is factual at all. I was just told this by the Daniel Boone that I knew. The male name, supposedly ended with him.

I have no facts about anything. I wasn't there, where-ever there was. I'm relating more of a memory I had with an encounter with a man claiming to be the last "male" descendant and he had no children. I have a picture of him passing me in the Charlotte Marathon in 1992, I think.

So put me down as not knowing anything about anything.

Put me down for reading about Daniel Boone's exploits and I always wanted to grow up to be "Daniel Boone".

My dad would not buy me a coon-skin hat and I'm still traumatized by that today.

Will it fit? People say I have a big head! If that's a euphemism, I have no idea about what.

It appears that Chris Boone has crashed in his pursuit of the End to End Crossing of North Carolina. He made it to Hickory but I don't know what happened after, yet. He's okay from what I gather. He was raising money to benefit children in NC.

Pollyannalana 6 years ago from US Author

Thank you, I do too. Something so old and historic and surely if there was a caretaker it would have been noticed before so very much was destroyed. There was a young woman's grave in the back, the stone so tall and writing all down it so sad. It would be nice if that place ever had any pictures of the graves destroyed to put them up here for people to see, but I seriously doubt it. You are right, seems they are all alike.

Jana Thompson 4 years ago

Hannah Boone was my 7th Great Grandmother. Her daughter, Elizabeth, made it all the way to Independence, Jackson County, Missouri. The cemetery where Hannah is buried, along with the epitaph for Squire, Jr., is in excellent condition. Most likely the nicest, oldest cemetery my husband and I have visited to this day. It is extremely likely that I have cousins, descended from Uncle Daniel, still living. It is just a matter of taking the time to the research and to do it correctly. Unfortunately, my software will not allow me to list Quaker as an official religion. I know that Hannah seemed to continue in her faith as a Quaker, or at least was exhibiting her faith in a "Meeting House" with her husbands. Frankly, Quakers and

Baptists were really not that much different.


Pollyannalana profile image

Pollyannalana 4 years ago from US Author

Jana, I could not find any information saying why these people for the most part chose not to be Quakers but back then and maybe even today, I can't say, many religions wanted to rule their members and with this new freedom they wanted all controlling factors cut. So that is just my guess. I have never heard anything bad on Quakers so I would say that was no doubt it and perhaps they wanted monies too these people would have a hard time coming up with in these rough times.


Tracie81 3 years ago

I am descended from Daniel Boone's sister Sarah and John Wilcoxen. Sarah and John had Nancy Wilcoxen, who married Benjamin Greer. They had John Greer as a son. John Greer married Nancy Owens, and they had Elijah Greer as a son. Elijah married Sarah Hawkins. They had Noah Greer. Noah married Nancy Jane Shaw, and they had Emma Greer. Emma Greer married Squire H. Stephens, who had Joseph Spencer Stephens. Joseph Spencer Stephens married Eula Jackson Stephens, and they had my grandmother, Joan Jones. We are also related to Dragging Canoe (he's on wikipedia) directly through his daughter Abigail and her marriage with Charles Roark. I believe Charles Roark and Daniel Boone served some together and knew each other at that time; if i remember correctly we're descended through the next two Charles Roarks who were sons. I can't piece that together on the spot, but I've been able to directly trace it before. I find it fascinating about the history with the Boone family, and on top of that Dragging Canoe, Abigail, and Charles Roark are interesting figures themselves. My grandmother has also believed we are related to Andrew Jackson because her mother Eula Jackson Stephens had mentioned so at some point, but I can't find background on Eula Jackson Stephens to support that notion. Of course, Andrew Jackson had no children himself but through other family my grandmother believes we are related to him.

Pollyannalana 3 years ago from US Author

That is very interesting Tracie. You seem to have it traced so very well, and I don't blame you, that is such a fascinating family. The last time I was by their graves the town still hadn't fixed up the grave yard. There are stones broken all to pieces and really even the ones with me agreed it seems there are many markers gone completely. This history in that cemetery is simply being destroyed and the town nor anyone in it seems to care, it just really astounds me.


Pollyannalana profile image

Pollyannalana 3 years ago from US Author

Garbonzo, thank you. That was very interesting and you know I never really gave it any thought but I imagine this is true much more than we know. Illegitimacy use to be so shameful but there it was all through the centuries and just those innocent newborn left to suffer and no doubt more than a few even killed. Does seem a shame this twin was lost in the history and you should bring this to a history buffs attention. I bet they would love to go after your story. Personally I have no idea how to do anything like this.

Again thanks and good luck.

Teresa 2 years ago

I am a direct desc. of Israel Boone, Daniel's brother. He died at age 30, also his wife, who was probably Native American. Some sources deny this, as it was frowned upon by some. They reportedly died of TB and are buried in the Joppa Cemetary also. Their 4 children were raised by Daniel. It is sometimes confusing to research this very large family tree, as they often named children after other family members,thus there are duplicate names,so be careful in your research! We verified research by three sources, the most helpful being the book in the Wilksboro Public Library, listing 10,000 desc. of Israel Boone.Daniel and most of the family migrated to Missouri around 1799, including his "foster children" of Israel. My great grandmother, Martha McGriff Lewis was a direct desc. of Israel's son Jesse.

I'm also a direct descendant of Abigail and Charles Roark mentioned above and was very excited to find the stories about them and the Boones as well. I have to say that the myth we all grew up believing- that she was Cherokee is false per my and my family's DNA testing that show no American Indian DNA. Our tree is well documented up to and past the level of Abigail and Charles yet I have never found indian documentation, only stories, and now we know why. They truly are just stories. If anyone has any documentation, proof or other family history facts they want to share I would love to collaborate with you. I can be reached at myfamof11 at yahoo.
