  • Note:
    Aaron and his brother Benjamin were in business together in New Brunswick, New Jersey, between 1748 and 1750. Ledley quotes another writer for the story that Aaron went on a bond for a friend and then had to pay when the friend could not. Because of his loss he moved in May of 1750 with his wife, seven sons and one daughter to Mocksville in Rowan County, North Carolina. On Feburary 21, 1764 Aaron bought a farm from Daniel and Rebecca Boone. He was among the persons participating in the Meckleburg Convention of 1775, which met as an aftermath of the skirmishes a Lexington and Concord and which drew up resolutions that included the statement, "The political bands which connected us to the Mother Country are dissolved." The authenticity of this Mecklenburg Convention and its "Declaration of Independence" has been questioned. His sons were to be pioneers in Kentucky around 1779 (Daniel Boone established Boonesboro there in 1775). His daughter Jane married Squire Boone, Jr., Daniel's brother. Aaron died in Rowan County in 1780. His body and that of his wife Rachel are buried in Joppa Cemetery in Salisbury, North Carolina.
