    William Boone Ninth Child of Daniel & Rebecca (Bryan) Boone
    William was born at the settlement near Clinch Mountain, Virginia about 20 June 1775. He died a few weeks later. William is buried in an unmarked grave in the old Moore's Fort Cemetery on a little hill overlooking the fort and Clinch River. Amo ng Draper's records is a roster list dated 6 October 1774 which states the number of men at each fort in the area and the names of the leaders of those forts. Daniel Boone is listed as the Officer In Charge at Moore's Fort. This tells us that i t was some time before the Boones resumed their trip to Kentucky, after the loss of her son, William. [The Boones lived at Blackmore's Fort and Moore's Fort in Virginia for about 2 years after the death of their oldest son, James. Daniel Boone w as placed in command of Moore's and Blackmore's Forts in 1774 as a Captain of militia and continued in command of them until he sucessfully traveled to Kentucky in the spring of 1775 and founded Fort Boonesborough.]
