Notes for GEORGE BOONE: From "The Boone Family" by Hazel Atterbury Spraker (1922) - pages 67-69:

"George Boone was the eighth child, and the fifth son of Squire and Sarah (Morgan) Boone, and a younger brother of Daniel Boone.

He married, it is thought about 1764, Ann, sometimes written Nancy, Linville, a daughter of William Linville and his wife, Ellender Bryan, a sister of Colonel Samuel Bryan, William and others. The Linvilles lived in the Boone and Bryan Settlements on the Yadkin. (For their further history see the articles on the Linville and Bryan Families.)

George Boone was in the party which went out to bury the two Linvilles, William and his son John (1766). (b) When the Indians attacked Fort Boonesborough in 1777 and besieged it, a man was let out of the Fort in the night, who hastened on horseback to North Carolina for aid. Immediately a company was raised, with John Holder, an active young man, as captain. George Boone was one of this company, but before they could get there the Indians had gone.

(b) In 1779, George Boone visited Kentucky to see the country, and the next year moved out, stopping first a short time at Boonesborough, and then for a little while at Bryan's Station. In 1780, he established Boone's Station about one and one half or two miles north of where the present court house of Richmond stands. This was on what is now the turnpike from Richmond to Lexington. Then in 1781, he helped Major William Hoy establish Hoy's Station, five or 6 miles south-west of Boonesborough. This was a beautiful tract of land, between Richmond and Boonesborough, but on no water course. (b) In the party which went out in October, 1780 to bring in the body of Edward Boone were his brother George and his son William L.

(c) When Daniel Boone went from Kentucky to the Virginia Legislature about 1788, George Boone sold him a horse with which he and his wife made the trip. George and his brothers, Jonathan and Samuel, were all Baptists.

When still a young man, George had a white swelling on his leg which left him lame and unfit to go on campaigns, so he took no part in the Indian Wars, and none of his sons went out on any campaign. Several years before his death he had his lame leg taken off. (c) However, he did service in defending forts wherever he was, and was appointed by Congress to do Frontier work during the Revolution. In "Revolutionary Soldiers of Virginia" by Eckenrode, and Illinois Papers "D" 32, in the Virginia State Library, we find that he was a Revolutionary soldier. Following is a record of at least a part of his service.

VIRGINIA STATE LIBRARY, RICHMOND, VIRGINIA Department of Archives and History. 5 July, 1917.

This certifies that in an original document in the Virginia State Library, which is "a Pay Role for Captain David Goss' Company in actural service in Kentucky county under the Command of Col. John Bowman from Sept. 6 till Oct. 21, 1780" appears the name, George Boone. The roll shows that George Boone was a member of this company for the specified time--38 days.

State Librarian.

He and his wife continued to live at his Station until after his brother, Squire Boone, had moved to Shelby County, where they with some of their children soon followed. They were living in Shelby County in 1811, for in Court Records of Madison County we find that, "George Boone and wife, Anna, on 10 November, 1811, then of and in Shelby County, conveyed to William Stone and James Stone, of Madison County, Ky., for the consideration of $3807.00, two hundred and seven acres of land in Madison County, Ky., on the right hand fork of Otter Creek, part of Joseph Phelps' pre-emption and Settlement, adjoining the lands of William Ervine (Irvine), Thomas Grubbs," etc. The deed was not acknowledged by Mrs. Ann (Linville) Boone until 3 March, 1812.

George Boone and his wife both died in Shelby County, but their bodies were taken back and buried in Madison County in the old George Boone--Robert Harris graveyard, near the site of Boone's Station, now Cross Plains. (d) Some of their children and grandchildren are buried there, as are Robert Harris and his wife, with some of their children and grand-children.

On his tombstone, in the old George Boone--Robert Harris graveyard near Richmond, Ky., is this inscription: "George Boone, Sen. Departed this life 11 or 14 November, 1820, aged 84."

(e) Ann or Nancy (Linville) Boone died 28 March, 1814, at about seventy years of age. The inscription on her tombstone in the same cemetery mentioned in the paragraph above reads, "In memory of Ann Boone, Wife of George Boone Sen., departed this life the 28th day of March, 1814, the mother of children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, 182." (e)

Samuel Boone said his father had six sons and six daughters, all of whom, with the exception of one son, lived to be grown.

Notes for ELIZABETH BOONE: From "The Boone Family" by Hazel Atterbury Spraker (1922) - page 130:

"ELIZABETH BOONE (George5; Squire4; George3), born about 1765; died when past 90 years of age. Married about 1792, Jesse Copher (b. about 1760; died 1822), son of Thomas Copher who was born in Pennsylvania but settled in Virginia.

Jesse Copher was raised in Culpepper Co., Va., and came to Kentucky as a young man. He was rather clumsy in build, so never made much of a hunter, but became a farmer instead.

He was a soldier in the Revolutionary Army; was captured with Kenton and Bullock, and taken to Detroit, where they were all kept a long time. Eventually they escaped thro' assistance given them by the wife of a storekeeper there. Kenton became acquainted with her and frankly said he wished help to escape. She promised to furnish provisions secretly, and arms if she could, but her husband must not be involved, and her life might be the forfeit if it were known she had helped them. She hid some "jerk" in a hollow tree, which had been agreed upon, and one evening, when some Indians had encamped nearby and stacked their guns while they were drinking, she stole three of the guns and hid them. She took ammunition from her husband's store, and one night with a ladder climbed the picketing (the prisoners were confined in some sort of stockade) to give them the guns and ammunition. She had gotten an Irishman who lived in Detroit to tell them, that if he were a prisoner and wished to escape he would take the usual route thro' the Wyandotte, Shawnee and Delaware country, then down to the Falls of the Ohio (Louisville, Ky.). "Profiting by this hint, they steered in that direction," and although they frequently heard guns, they saw no Indians, but supposed they were being pursued. At first they traveled only during the nights. Their "jerk" gave out, and finally they were forced in spite of their fear of discovery to shoot a deer. Just as it fell they discovered a party of Indians at a distance and hid themselves in a thicket. The Indians, however, disappeared and they enjoyed a feast of venison, "jerking" the rest of it. Soon after they reached the Falls of the Ohio.

(a) Jesse Copher and Elizabeth Boone were married in 179-, in Ky., and settled in Clark Co., where he took up a pre-emption of 1400 acres on Stoner Creek, most of which he lost later by a prior location. (a) In the War of 1812 he was Captain of the Kentucky Militia Volunteers, commanded by Col. Richard Davenport. Following the loss of his land he moved to Boone Co., Mo., in 1819. For many years he and his wife were members of the Baptist Church.

Both of them died in Missouri, leaving a large family of children, one of whom, Samuel, lived ten or twelve miles north of Columbia, Boone Co. (a) Jesse Copher and Elizabeth Boone had eleven children, all mentioned in his will, which was signed 5 July, 1822; produced in Boone Co. (Mo.) Circuit Court and proven 21 Sept., 1822; and recorded on 18 Oct., 1822, in Will Book "A" page 120, 1 and 2."

Notes for WILLIAM LINVILLE BOONE: "The Boone Family" by Hazel Atterbury Spraker (1922) - pages 131-133:

"William Linville Boone was the third child of George (brother of Daniel) and Ann or Nancy (Linville) Boone. About 1780, it is said he came from Virginia with his parents, who were among the very early pioneers, to Madison County, Ky., where in 1780, his father founded Boone's Station, about one and one-half or two miles north of the present courthouse in Richmond. In 1789, he was married to Nancy Grubbs, the marriage rites being solemnized by Rev. Christopher Harris, of Old Baptist Faith, who was a brother of Lucy (Harris) Grubbs, thus being an uncle of the bride.

After his uncle, Edward Boone, had been killed by Indians in 1780, William, his father, George Boone, and his uncle Daniel Boone, were in the party which went out to bring in the mutilated body.

In the fall of 1799, when Daniel Boone moved to Missouri, William L. Boone was one of the party which went by boat, but he did not stay long and returned without trying to get a grant of land from Spain. (Missouri was then Spanish territory.)

During the closing years of the 18th, and the early part of the 19th Centuries there were two men by the name of William Boone living in Madison County, Ky. One is the subject of this sketch, and the other was probably his cousin, William Boone, whose wife was Margaret.

In Deed Book "G," page 431, we find "on 6th February, 1810, Higgason Grubbs, and wife, Lucy (Harris), for 1500 dollars, conveyed to William Boone a tract of land, granted by the Commonwealth of Ky., to Higgason Grubbs, 2 March, 1789, on the waters of Muddy Creek and the Kentucky River."

Again in Deed Book "G," page 533, "on 11 October, 1810, Edward Boone and his wife, Dorcas, of Shelby County, Ky., for 600 pounds, conveyed to William Boone, of Madison County, 185 acres of land on Tates and Otter Creeks in Madison County." The Edward Boone mentioned was probably William Boone's brother Edward, whose wife was Mrs. Dorcas (Simpson) White. It is thought that both of these conveyances were made to the subject of this sketch, son of George and Anne (Linville) Boone, for George Boone, Sr., owned lands near Richmond, on the head waters of the Tates and Otter Creeks. The two creeks head together in the northern part of the city of Richmond, where the ridge divides the head stream of the two creeks. (c)

"On 2 February, 1810, William Boone and wife, Nancy (Grubbs), conveyed to Richard Tunstall Jr., land on Tates Creek in Madison County Ky., adjoining Berry and others." Witnesses to this deed were Rebecca Harris, and their two daughters, Lucy and Mrs. Milly (Boone) Carson, wife of William Carson. The land of Lindsay Carson, father of the William Carson mentioned above, adjoined the William Boone land. James Berry was an uncle of Nancy (Grubbs) Boone and thus a great uncle of William Boone.

In 1811, William Boone and family, including his son-in-law, Andrew Tribble, with his family, moved to Shelby County, Ky. Just how long he lived here we do not know. After a time (1818) he moved to Missouri, settling near Columbia, Boone Co. (a), living there until after the death of his wife, Nancy (Grubbs) in 1835, when soon after he returned to Kentucky, and again located in Shelby County.

In Heitman's Historical Register (1789-19--), page 230, we find the record of William Boone of Kentucky, being 3d Lieut. of Rangers on 1 Aug., 1813, in Illinois Territory; and honorably discharged "15 (Aug.?) 1815." This may refer to the subject, William Linville Boone.

In 1845, he was sent by the Kentucky Legislature to Missouri to gain the consent of Nathan Boone, son of Daniel, for the removal of the bodies of Daniel and his wife, Rebecca (Bryan) Boone, from Missouri to Frankfort, Ky. He was successful in this mission, and was one of the pall-bearers at the time of their removal.

In 1840, at the age of seventy-two he was married a second time to Mrs. Ann (Bryan) Perry. A few years later (1847), he died and was buried on the old Major Andrew Tribble farm in Shelby County. In those days each family had its own private burial ground."

"THOMAS BURRIS, the head of this family, died in Orange Co., Va., about 1789. He married Frances Tandy. From the "Quisenberry Genealogy," by Anderson Chenault Quisenberry, we learn that Frances Tandy who married Thomas Burris was the daughter of Roger Tandy, whose mother was a Miss Colby, a descendant of Sir Edward Colby, a member of the original London Company that settled Jamestown (Va.). The will of Thomas Burris was probated March 1789, in Orange Co., Va. In it he bequeathed to his daughter, Sarah Ann Tribble, one negro girl named Agnes, and all her increase; also one feather bed and furniture. Thomas Burris and Frances Tandy had several children, those who are known being listed below:

Nebo, in Madison Co., Ky., about two miles north east of Richmond, on a prong of Otter Creek, in 1795, and was baptised by Elder Peter Woods. He was for twenty years a Justice of the Peace of the County, an extensive farmer, and accumulated a considerable fortune. For a period of more than fifty years, he served four churches as pastor, preaching much through the mountains of Ky., even down to old age." (W. H. Miller's "History & Genealogies," page 450.) They had a number of children of whom the 10th:--

Notes for EDWARD BOONE: "The Boone Family" by Hazel Atterbury Spraker (1922) - pages 136-137:

In 1809, Edward Boone bought of Jesse Noland and wife, Sarah (Turner), 180 acres of land on Tates and Otter Creeks in Madison County, Ky. In Deed Book "G," page 533, on 11 Oct., 1810, Edward Boone and wife, Dorcas, of Shelby County, Ky., for 600 pounds, conveyed to William Boone, of Madison County, Ky., 186 acres of land on the waters of Tates and Otter Creeks, in the latter county.

From "Pioneers of Missouri," comes this: "Edward Boone married the widow White, whose maiden name was Dorcas Simpson. She was a sister of Samuel Boone's wife, and at the time of her marriage with Mr. Boone, had a son, Morgan B. White, who was still living in Callaway County, Mo." (Written in 1876.)

Edward Boone went to Mo., shortly after Samuel did (1818), and settled in the same neighborhood, Callaway Co. (b & c). He was said to be living in Green County, Mo., in 1854, then about 71 years old. (b)
