One of George's and Mary's grandchildren was the American frontiersman Daniel Boone. Descendants of another of their grandchildren, Captain Square Boone, Jr., applied to Sons of the American Revolution on the basis of his service[7].

[edit] Immigration

George and Mary were Quakers--members of the Society of Friends in Callumpton, Devonshiore.

In 1713, they sent their three oldest children to America to scout it out. Four years later, in 1717, they immigrated. They left from traveled from their home in Bradnich, Devonshire, Engand to Bristol and set sail on August 17th, 1717, arriving in Philadelphia on October 13th[8].

[edit] Time in America

George joined the Quaker group, Gwynedd Monthly Meeting of Friends, and is recorded in several of their minutes[9].

George built a log cabin in 1720. Later, after growing more prosperous, he built a stone house (which was still standing at the time of writing of The Boone Family) nearby that is marked today by a stone that reads:

Paperwork submitted to the US National Park Service indicates the location of the log cabin and gives more historical context.

[edit] Death

According to The Boone Family:

When George Boone III died it is said that his remains were carried into the stone house and from there to his burial in the Friends' burying-ground at Exeter Meeting House. And old family Bible record the fact that "When Grandfather died he left 8 children, 52 grandchildren and 10 great-grand children living [...]

In accordance with the custom of the Friends Society, no stones mark the graves of George Boone III and his wife Mary, but a far greater memorial is found in the thousands of descendants who unite in honoring their memory.

[edit] Historical Records

  • A George Boone (possibly this one, but little information given) emmigrated to Philadelphia, PA in 1717[10]
