The John Boone original homesite was on the present-day Boone Farm Road about 150 yards from the present W.J.S. Walker (Lawrence Walker) house. It was near a spring and Sukey Creek. The John Boone log house was moved soon after the Revolutionary War to a site about 30 yards southeast of the present dirt road and about 50 yards north of the present Walker barn. A mound of dirt and rubble marks this later site. After the sale to Benjamin, John Boone lived on the rest of his land until his death in 1803. Beal Ijames of Davie County wrote Lyman Draper in 1884 that John Boone was buried at Joppa Cemetery. Another letter to Draper, probably written by H. H. Helper in 1887, notes that his soapstone gravemarker at Joppa Cemetery could not be read. See: Draper Manuscripts. Tradition, also, has said that John Boone was buried at Joppa.John Boone married a Rebecca Bryan. She may have been the daughter of Morgan Bryan, Sr. and Martha Strode Bryan; however, Rebecca Bryan is not listed in Morgan Bryan's will. If she was Morgan Bryan's daughter, she was an aunt of Rebecca Bryan (Mrs. Daniel) Boone."
