M, #2955, b. May 20, 1726, d. June 26, 1756
Father*Squire Boone1 b. November 25, 1696, d. January 2, 1765
Mother*Sarah Jarmen Morgan1 b. circa 1700, d. January 1, 1777
     Israel Boone, son of Squire Boone and Sarah Jarmen Morgan, was born on May 20, 1726 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.1
Israel married (?) (?) on December 31, 1747 at Bucks County, Pennsylvania Colony.1,2
The history of Israel Boone is scarce and the name of his spouse was unrecorded as she was a non-Quaker or a "worldling" and thus not accepted by the Quaker community. When his pregnant sister, Sarah, married a "worldling" in 1742 the parents, Squire and Sarah Boone had to publically apologize to the community. But the story is told that when Israel married in 1747, his father stood by Israel and subsequently left the Quaker church.
rael Boone, second child and oldest son of Squire and Sarah (Morgan) Boone, and oldest brother of the famous Daniel Boone, was born 9 May (Old-style calendar) or 20 May (new-style) in 1726, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, moving in early childhood with his parents to Berks County, where his grandparents, the George Boones, lived.
He was married in Berks County, in Dec 1747, when he was 21 years of age, but the name of his wife is not given in the only known record of his marriage. The Boones all being members of the Society of Friends, the young folks were supposed to marry within the Church; and its monthly Meeting Minutes, ordinarily so thorough in their recordings of the births, marriages and deaths of its members, indicate by their very brevity, their intense disapproval of the marriage, stating only that Israel had 'married out', the entry having been made 31 Dec 1747.
The southeastern part of Pennsylvania, in the mid-1700's, was fairly well-settled by groups of families from various countries of Western Europe - England, Wales, Scotland, Holland, Germany, and probably others. The lives of these colonists revolved largely around their respective churches and religions, but there was nothing to prevent their intermingling socially, so Israel's wife was, no doubt, from one of these adjoining communities, as was the husband of his sister, Sarah, whose marriage out of the church, likewise created a disturbing situation. Nothing has as yet been found to give credence to the story that Israel Boone's wife was an Indian girl. Inasmuch as it appears to have had its origin, not in Pennsylvania, where Israel was born, grew up and was married, nor in North Carolina, where he and his wife lived and died, and where their two sons raised their large families to adulthood, it can hardly be considered a "tradition", and its authenticity seems doubtful. It seems to have originated several generations later, among descendants living elsewhere, and could well have been started quite innocently, from a casual remark by some in a moment of speculation as to her identify, and then to have spread from person to person.
No doubt, this marriage was instrumental in bringing about the move to North Carolina of the entire Squire Boone family in 1750. It does seem somewhat unlikely that young Israel and his bride, probably having no property or possessions to detain them in Pennsylvania, would have lingered on for more than two years in a colony where he felt strongly that he had been the cause of the existing friction between his family and the Church.
More than one tradition has it that the Squire Boone family moved first to Virginia, where they lived for a few years before moving on to North Carolina; but the records in Pennsylvania show that Squire did not leave that state until 1 May 1750, which is the same year they are said to have reached the valley of the Yadkin in North Carolina.3 Israel Boone and (?) (?) moved circa 1750 from Bucks County, Pennsylvania to Valley of the Yadkin, Winston-Salem, Forsyth County, North Carolina Colony.2
Israel moved along with Squire Boone and Sarah Jarmen Morgan on May 1, 1750 from Pennsylvania to Winchestor, Fredrick County, Commonwealth of Virginia. They moved due to religious differences.4
Israel moved along with Squire Boone and Sarah Jarmen Morgan in 1753 from Virginia to Yadkin River Valley, Rowan County, North Carolina.4
Israel died on June 26, 1756 at age 30 of consumption.5,2 He was buried in Joppa Cemetery in Mocksville, Rowan County, North Carolina.2

Daniel and Rebecca Boone
Tombstone in Kentucky

His Birth: He was born in Exeter township, Bucks county, PA, according to Bogant, February 11, 1735; Hartley, same date; Peck, February, 1735; the family record in the handwriting of his Uncle James, July 14, 1732; Flint (who wrote in 1840), 1746; Bogart (who wrote in 1881), August 22, 1734; Switzler (who wrote in 1877), adopts, in his "History of Missouri", the date of James Boone's family record - July 14, 1732.
His Life: His father, Squire Boone, came from England, and took up his residence in a frontier settlement in Pennsylvania, where Daniel received the merest rudiments of education, but became thoroughly familiar with the arts and hardships of pioneer life. When he was 18 years old the family moved to the banks of the river Yadkin, in North Carolina, where he married Rebecca Bryan, and passed some years as a farmer. He made several hunting excursions into the wilderness, and finally, in 1769, set out with five others to explore the border region of Kentucky. They halted on Red river, a branch of the Kentucky, where they hunted for several months. In December, 1769, Boone and a companion named Stewart were captured by the Indians, but escaped, and Boone was soon after joined by his brother. They were captured again, and Stewart was killed; but Boone escaped, and his brother going shortly after to North Carolina, he was left alone for several weeks in the wilderness, with only his rifle for means of support.
He was rejoined by his brother, and they continued their explorations till March, 1771, when they returned home with the spoils which they had collected. In 1773 he sold his farm and set out with his family and two brothers, and five other families, to make his home in Kentucky. They were intercepted by Indians and forced to retreat to Clinch river, near the border of Virginia, where they remained for some time, Boone in the meanwhile conducting a party of surveyors into Kentucky for Patrick Henry, the Governor of Virginia. He was afterward appointed, with the commission of a captain, to command three garrisons on the Ohio, to keep back the hostile Indians, and in 1775 was employed to lay out lands in Kentucky for the Pennsylvania Company. He erected a stockade fort on the Kentucky river, which he called Boonsborough, which is now in Madison county, and removed his family to the new settlement, where he was again employed in command of a force to repel the Indians.
In 1778 he went to Blue Licks to obtain salt for the settlement, and was captured and taken to Detroit. His knowledge of the Indian character enabled him to gain favor with his captors, and he was adopted into one of their families. Discovering a plan laid by the British for an Indian attack upon Boonsborough, he contrived to escape, and set out for the Kentucky settlement, which he reached in less than five days. His family, supposing that he was dead, had returned to North Carolina; but he at once put the garrison in order and successfully repelled the attack, which was soon made. He was court-martialed for surrendering his party at the Licks, and for endeavoring to make a treaty with the Indians before the attack on the fort; but, conducting his own defence, he was acquitted and promoted to the rank of major.
In 1780 he brought his family back to Boonsborough, and continued to live there till 1792. At that time Kentucky was admitted into the Union as a State, and much litigation arose about the titles of settlers to their lands. Boone, losing all his possessions for want of a clear title, retired in 1795 in disgust into the wilderness of Missouri, settling on the Femme Osage Creek, in St. Charles County. This region was then under the dominion of Spain, and he was appointed commander of the Femme Osage district, and received a large tract of land for his services, which he also lost subsequently because he failed to make his title good. His claim to another tract of land was confirmed by Congress in 1812, in consideration of his eminent public services.
The latter years of his life he spent in Missouri, with his son, Nathan Boone, near Marthasville, where he died September 26, 1820, aged eighty-six. The only original portrait of Boone in existence was painted by Mr. Chester Harding in 1820, and now hangs in the State-house at Frankfort, Kentucky. His remains were interred by the side of his wife's, who died March 18, 1813, near the village named, where they continued to repose until August, 1845, when they were removed for interment in the public cemetery at Frankfort.
The consent of the surviving relations of the deceased having been obtained, a commission was appointed under whose superintendence the removal was effected; and the 13th of September, 1845, was fixed upon as the time when the ashes of the venerable dead would be committed with fitting ceremonies to the place of their final repose. It was a day which will be long remembered in the history of Franklin County, Kentucky. The deep feeling excited by the occasion was evinced by the assembling of an immense concourse of citizens from all parts of the State; and the ceremonies were most imposing and impressive. A procession extending more than a mile in length accompanied the coffin to the grave. The hearse, decorated with evergreens and flowers, and drawn by four white horses, was placed in its assigned position in the line, accompanied, as pall-bearers, by the following distinguished pioneers, viz.: Col. Richard M. Johnson, of Scott; Gen. James Taylor, of Campbell; Capt. James Ward, of Mason; Gen. Robert B. McAfee and Peter Jordan, of Mercer; Walter Bullock, Esq., of Fayette; Capt. Thomas Joyes, of Louisville; Mr. London Sneed, of Franklin; Col. John Johnson, of the State of Ohio; Maj. E.E. Williams, of Kenton, and Col. William Boone, of Shelby. The procession was accompanied by several military companies and the members of the Masonic Fraternity and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, in rich regalia. Arrived at the grave, the company was brought together in a beautiful hollow near the grove, ascending from the centre on every side. Here the funeral services were performed. The hymn was given out by Rev. Mr. Godell, of the Baptist Church; prayer by Bishop Soule, of the Methodist Episcopal Church; oration by the Hon. John J. Crittenden; closing prayer by the Rev. J.J. Bullock, of the Presbyterian Church, and benediction of the Eld. P.S. Fall, of the Christian Church. The coffins were then lowered into the graves. The spot where the graves are situated is as beautiful as nature and art combined can make it. It is designed to erect a monument on the place.
His Death: Timothy Flint, in his biography (1840), states that it occurred "in the year 1818, and in the eighty-fourth year of his age;" Hartley, on September 26, 1820, in his eighty-sixth year; Bogart, the same; Switzler, the same, except that his age was eighty-eight; and Chester Harding, who painted from life the celebrated portrait of him in June, 1820, and who fixes his age at ninety, also fixes his death as occuring in 1820. (See Harding's "Egotistigraphy", for a copy of which we are indebted to his son, Gen. James Harding, one of the Board of Railroad Commissioners for Missouri). In the Franklin (Mo.) Intelligencer of Oct. 14, 1820, there is copied from the St. Louis Enquirer an obituary notice of Daniel Boone, the first paragraph of which is as follows:
DIED.-On the 26th ult. (Sep.) at Charette Village (which was on Femme Osage Creek, in St. Charles County, Mo.), in the ninetieth year of his age, the celebrated Col. DANIEL BOONE, discoverer and first settler of the State of Kentucky.
He died at the residence of his son, Maj. Nathan Boone, which was an old-style two-story house, the first of the kind erected west of the Missouri river, and it is yet standing.7

Rebecca Bryan Boone
     Rebecca Ann Bryan was born on January 9, 1738 in Winchester, Frederick County, Virginia.4,3
Rebecca married Daniel Boone, son of Squire Boone and Sarah Jarmen Morgan, on August 14, 1756 at Yadkin River Valley, Rowan County, North Carolina.1,3 Rebecca Ann Bryan was a witness at the wedding of Israel Boone Grant and Susannah Bryan at home of Daniel and Rebecca Boone, Fort Boonesborough, Madison County, Kentucky.5
Rebecca died on March 18, 1813 in St. Charles County, Missouri, at age 75.4,3 She was buried in 1813 Defiance's Boone grave. Daniel Boone has suffered similar body-snatching shennanigans but with a twist: He appears to have ended up in two graves.
Everyone agrees that Boone died at his son's home near Defiance, MO, in 1820. Everyone also agrees that he was buried nearby in Marthasville (about 14 mi. west), near the grave of his wife, Rebecca. But then the story gets muddled. The folks in Frankfort, KY, would have you believe that Rebecca and Daniel were exhumed 25 years later and reinterred in Frankfort Cemetery. The marker near Defiance mentions the reinterrment, but...
According to Defiance, Frankfort dug up the wrong body. The grave next to Rebecca's was already occupied when Daniel died, they say, so he was buried at her feet. Daniel's relatives were angry at Frankfort and didn't tell them about his true burial plot. They let Frankfort cart away the body next to Rebecca's, the body of a stranger.
Scientific scrutiny seems to support Defiance's claims. A forensic anthropologist studied a plaster cast of the skull in Frankfort's "Daniel Boone" grave in 1983 and said that it really belonged to a large black man. Frankfort, of course, pooh-poohed those allegations.
Both graves have worthy monuments. Frankfort's is bigger (that was, ostensibly, the reason for the move in the first place) but it's in a big cemetery and must share its surroundings with other dead people. The memorial near Defiance is out by itself, and it's worth remembering that Daniel Boone's own reason for leaving Kentucky was that it was "too crowded."6
Rebecca was reinterred in 1845 at Frankfort Cemetery in Frankfort, Kentucky.3
