Note: !BIRTH-PARENTS-MARRIAGE-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: Draper quoting Samuel Boone, Israel's brother, says that Israel died June 26 1756 at age 30 and was buried near present Mocksville. There is no known tradition or reference to his being buried at the old Joppa Cemetery. The Moravian Records, Vol I, p 137, refer to the "consumptive.... Mr. Boone...." Draper also says that there were four children, two sons and two daughters, and that the daughters contracted consumption from their mother and died young. After Israel's death, two of the four children were reared by Daniel and Rebecca and two by others of the family. There is no known record of Israel Boone owning land in Davie County. However, the Rowan Court Minutes for January 1765 name a road overseer "from the South Yadkin to Israel Boons old Place". The family may have lived on one of Squire Boone's tracts. Israel's two sons went to Kentucky probably in 1779.
