    A quote from Nathan Boone, Squire's grandson, about Squire:
    "My grandfather, Squire Boone, was a weaver and a farmer. His residence was probably in Oley. He kept at least five or six looms going at one time. He had his homestead and in the grass season moved his stock several miles distant to a fine ran ge where cowpens were made for herding the cattle at nights, and a cabin was built in which Mrs. Boone spent the dairy season in attending to her milk. During the mild weather her son Daniel went with her to act as a herdsman. He went with the c attle during their daily roaming through the woods and brought them back each evening. This was his chief occupation from the age of ten to seventeen. This move was an annual affair, and Mrs. Boone always went personally to attend to the dairy , and her son Daniel was always her attendant to watch and take care of the cattle."

    Among the Welsh Quakers was a family of Morgans. In 1720 Squire Boone, a son of George and Mary (Maugridge) Boone married Sarah Morgan. A Welch American planter of note who came early to Pennsylvania was Edward Morgan, the grandfather of two grea t Americans: Daniel Boone of Kentucky, son of Squire and Sarah (Morgan) Boone and Gen. Daniel Morgan, according to Quaker records. (Ref. P.22 Boone Bulletin and American Pioneer Records, Vol II 1934-39) 
    Every effort has been made to learn something of the ancestry of Sarah Morgan, wife of Squire Boone but without appreciable results. It is claimed, of course, that Sarah's father was Edward Morgan of Gwynedd, Philadelphia, PA., and her marriage re cord shows that fact beyond all doubt. It is also reasonably certain that her brothers and sisters were the young Morgans, whose marriage records like her own, state that they were children of Edward Morgan of Gwynedd. Beyond these facts there i s nothing authentic upon which to base any statement connecting Sarah (Morgan) Boone with any other Morgan family record.  In "Life of Gen. Daniel Morgan of the Virginia line" by James Graham we find, "It is interesting to know that these two famo us fighters of the Revolutionary period, Daniel Morgan and Daniel Boone were first cousins, but we have found no adequate proof of this connection." 

    At page 33, "Society of Colonial Wars" it is recorded that Squire Boone I, 1696-1765, served against the Catawba and Cherokee Indians on several occasions. He was justice for Rowen County, NC. This record establishes membership for Squire Boone' s descendants to the Colonial Dames of America. 

    Squire Boone enlarged his farm by thrift. He continued his trade of weaving and kept 5 or 6 looms going making homespun cloth for the market and neighbors. 
    The Boones were prosperous and happy in Oley and it may be wondered why they left their farms and looms, both of which were profitable, and set their faces toward the unknown. It is recorded that though they were Quakers, they were of a high mettl e and were not infrequently dealt with by the Meeting. Two of Squire Boone's children married "worldlings" --non-Quakers--and were, in consequence, disowned by the Society of Friends. In defiance of his sect which strove to make him sever all conn ection with his unruly offspring, Squire Boone refused to shut his door on the son and daughter who had scandalized local Quakers. The Society of Friends thereupon expelled him. This occured, apparently, in the winter of 1748/49. In the Spring o f 1750 we see the whole Boone family (save two sons) with their wives and children, household goods and stock on the great highway bound for a land where the hot heart and beligerent spirit shall not be held amiss. They moved from Pennsylvania t o Rowen County, N.C. Squire Boone died in his 65th year in 1764 and was buried in Rowen County at the fork of Yadkin River about ten miles above the fork on a place called Burning Rigg; his wife, Sarah (Morgan) Boone died in the 72nd year in 177 6 and was buried beside her husband.
