    !BIRTH-PARENTS-SPOUSE-CHILDREN-DEATH: Compiled by James W. Wall, Flossie
    Martin, Howell Boone, THE SQUIRE, DANIEL, AND JOHN BOONE FAMILIES IN DAVIE
    COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA; ; 1982, Davie Printing Company, Mocksville, NC; p 5-6; Original copy in poss of Pat Geary, Harrisonburg, VA; NOTE: Taken from the above named publication: THE JOHN BOONE (nephew of Squire Boone) FAMILY IN DAVIE COUNTY.
    "John Boone 630-acre Granville grant 'beginning at an Ash on the northside of Hunting Creek...' Dec 21, 1753. Bk. 3, p426. Proved in open court Oct 10, 1756. Rowan County Minutes.
    Warrant for 700 acre tract in the 'Forks of Yadkin' probable date Dec 8, 1761. (Original warrant now deteriorated and unreadable.) Nothing further is known about this.
    Warrant for 300-acre tract, 'lying on the East Side of Hunting Creek ... and joining my (John Boone's) own deed land.... Sept 15, 1778.
    John Boone 266-acre State of North Carolina Grant 'on the waters of Hunting Creek...joining his own land....' Oct 10, 1783. Bk. 10, p 253.
    John Boone and wife Rebecca to Robert Bell 350 acres on Hunting Creek 'being part of a tract of 630 acres of land granted to the said John Boon by...the Earl Granville...' Aug 15, 1766. Bk. 6, p. 388.
    John Boone conveyed 228 acres to his son Benjamin Boone 'on Hunting Creek being part of the tracts...one tract from Earl Granville...the other by the State...' March 4, 1786. Bk. 13, p. 289.
    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."
