    --m. Mr. JONES bef 1799 NC

    She is the FIRST daughter, mentioned in the will and was already married to a Mr. Jones in 1799. Could she be from William's first marriage? Since I'm also a Jones descendant, I'm especially interested in her husband's name and what happened to her. If you can help, please write me, Ann (Jobe) Brown

    Life of Kinchin Boon Sr. and his wife, Margaret 'Peggy' Jones

    As stated earlier, these two Boon wives, Margaret 'Peggy' and Mary Elizabeth, will play a very vital part in the lives of their children and the values that they learned. They were both real pioneers and grandmothers that we can be proud to call our ancestors.

Special Thanks

First must thank Patsy (Boon) Brnaton, who literally spent years researching the census and having patience with me to sort through them. Without her, I would have given up years ago when I discovered the 'real mess of misconceptions' that had been written and posted about our William Boon of Franklin Co., North Carolina.

Over the years, I've corresponded with many of Wiliam's descendants and together we have compiled a much more accurate resource for this family. Hopefully the earlier mistakes, will gradually be corrected and more records will be discovered to complete the picture.

If you have any photographs, or tombstone pictures or scans of any documents for any descendants of this family - please do send them to me.
