    The Callaway Kentucky courthouse is in Murray,Kentucky. I spent 4 years in Murray 1965-1969. I met a Parvin Blaylock who shared Callaway stories and directed me to historical sites that were virtually unknown.I did not know that I was a direct until years later:)

    6th great granddaughter of Edward “Ned” Boone. Also the 7th great granddaughter of Daniel and Edward’s cousin Josiah Boone Sr, who accompanied the family to Kentucky. Daniel and Edward’s father Squire is my 7th great grandfather, and their uncle George IV is my 8th great grandfather. Definitely some cousin marriages there! Hahahaha. The common thread is my great great grandmother Cener Boone Hunter, born 10 July 1857 in Arkansas, daughter of Squire Court Boone (b. 1830 KY). When I had my DNA done, “Kentucky Settler” group lit up the chart like a spotlight and the Boone name was everywhere! Loving this. So fun.

  4. Philip D. Hotlen November 12, 2017 at 10:52 pm

    He may be my first cousin six times removed. That is based on his mother’s (Sarah Morgan) sister (Hannah Morgan).

  5. Edie Driskill November 7, 2017 at 9:49 pm

    Just discovered this tree because my grandmother was orphaned at 5 and adopted by a new family. This is her birth family and our Boone branch. I’m exploring the other lines from Squire, because my husband is from KY and I’ve seen Boones referenced in his tree. I’m looking for our relationship, just for fun. I’m also digging into Daniel’s work in Logan County Ohio to clear the indigenous population, because another ancestor in my father’s line was the first settler there after his invasion. Just found your group and I might be back!

    My wife, Patricia Nolan is a descendant, 5th great-granddaughter, of Elizabeth Boone (1732-1825) who married William Grant. I may be related by marriage to Sarah Boone (1724-1815) who married John Wilsockson. We live in central Kentucky.

  11. Rhonda Suiter August 23, 2017 at 4:40 pm

    From Brookings, OR. Daniel Boone was my 5th great grandfather. My Grandmother’s dad was Van Daniel Boone, Son of Jesse VanBibber Boone, son of Alphonso Boone, son of Jesse Bryan Boone, son of Daniel and Rebecca Boone. I wish I would of gotten more information from my Grandmother Cora Rose Boone. She did however tell me about living on Boone Island and using a row boat to go to school!

  12. Karen Turner McGee August 22, 2017 at 4:57 pm

    From Dallas, Texas – I have followed the Geneology back to Daniel Boone being my 7th Great Uncle, Edward was my 6th Great Grandfather > George Boone, 5th Great Grandfather > Richard Boone, 4th Great Grandfather> Mary Hester Boone, 3rd Great Grandmother > Wade Boone Hall, Great Grandfather > Jess Ernest Hall, Grandfather > Mary Lou Turner, Mother> ME
    Some of the family has followed a different path, I have tried to back track from their information and do not feel its correct.

  13. Sandra Little McGuire August 17, 2017 at 6:55 am

    Thank you for your assistance to Tonya and Kelly Nickles in their efforts to locate the gravesite of Hiram and Sarah Evans Bryant (Bryan), Sr. I very much enjoyed the article published in the “Licking Valley Courier” on July 27, 2017 regarding your involvement in the project.

    I would like to add a family story regarding the couple and some of their children: Hiram and Sarah, along with some of their children and members of connecting families, joined a wagon train, perhaps with a religious group and traveled to Kansas. After a short time in Kansas Hiram and Sarah returned to Eastern Kentucky. The return trip was made by train. Upon their return they bought the property that became known as Bryant’s Fork. Their son Hiram Bryant, III and his wife Ellen Oldfield Bryant, daughter of Rezin and Martha Ann “Patsy” Murphy Oldfield remained in the Lynn, Kansas area for the remainder of their lives.

    If possible, I would appreciate your forwarding this information to the Nickles family.

    Thank you.

W. Frank, father of WW Frank, father of Stephen Frank, my father. Whew…. that’s a….

  15. Jennifer Masters Young August 2, 2017 at 2:25 am

    I am from Pennsylvania originally and I am a direct descendant of George Boone III of Devon. My ancestor was the eldest sibling of Squire Boone, also named George. I am amazed at how many direct descendants and other relatives of Daniel Boone there are today.

  16. Daniel Boone Simmons July 25, 2017 at 5:39 pm

    Looking for all the help I can get in our family tree. Thanks in advance!

  17. Laurie C. Angel July 18, 2017 at 9:21 am

  18. Byron Wheeler July 2, 2017 at 9:55 pm

    Originally from Dallas, Texas I’m so envious of those descendants still carrying the Boone name. I lost that chance almost immediately: Samuel Boone (brother of Daniel) is my 5th greatgrandfather. His daughter, Hannah gave birth to Elizabeth Frank – Elizabeth gave birth to Lucretia Daimwood – Lucretia gave birth to Sarah Elizabeth Wheatley – and Sarah gave birth to my grandfather…Collintine Page in 1889. And then there was my mom – Vivian. Amazing to see how many we are. We’re everywhere!

  19. Bryan Boone June 26, 2017 at 1:34 am

    This is quite a task tracking down past generations so far I have found:
    George Boone II
    George Boone III
    Squire Boone Sr
    Squire Boone Jr
    Moses Boone
    Daniel A Boone
    John M Boone
    Roy Boone
    Glen Boone
    Bryan Boone
    Bryan Boone II {me}

    Dad started this before he passed and now I am continuing it, I am always looking for more info so I can pass the knowledge to my children. Also will be nice learning about more relatives.

  20. scott tripp June 4, 2017 at 8:52 pm

    My 7x great grandmother is Hannah Boone Stewart
    via Sarah Stewart Osborne
    Hannah Starr

  21. Kathleen Bryan-Wollmann May 30, 2017 at 12:52 pm

    My name is Kathleen Bryan-Wollmann. My sister Mindy has done some research and we have recently found out we are related to Daniel Boone’s wife. It was a very interesting find.

    We are related on my father’s side. (Bryan)
    We would like to learn more about our heritage.
    Is anybody else related on the Bryan side?

    Most of live in Ohio. My twin brother lives in Hendersonville, Tennessee.
    I would like to hear from you.

    Thank you for your time!

  22. Billie Sue Graybeal May 23, 2017 at 2:05 pm

    Boone Family descendant through John and Mary Boone Webb (6x great grandparents on my mother’s side) and John and Sarah Boone Wilcoxsen (7th great grandparents on my father’s side). I have enjoyed visiting your website!

  23. Bernice Dudeck May 13, 2017 at 8:53 pm

    Hannah Boone is my 5th great grandmother. Live in Kansas and will check out reunions. Richard Pennington was 5th great grandfather, Daniel Pennington and Ester, Lieuretta Pennington and Jonathan Moore, Abigail Moore and Thomas Rush, Abigail Rush and William Weaver.

  24. Brian Servello April 19, 2017 at 8:42 pm

    Daniel Boone was my 6x Great Grandfather ! Nothing Complicated. Leah scholl, Daniel Boones Grandaughter Married John Newman my 4x great grandfather. Makes Daniel Boone My 6x ggf

  25. Kim Kinsey April 7, 2017 at 2:28 pm

    Descendant of Daniel’s brother Israel as follows:
    Israel Boone–>Jesse Boone–>Israel McMahan Boone–>John Boone–>Israel Judson Boone–>Anna Grace Boone Cobble–Dorothy Jewell Cobble Benefield–>Sandra Benefield Kinsey–>me

    Believe me, it wasn’t easy sorting out all the Daniels, Israels, and Squires!!

    My mom and I have been chipping away at the huge task of digitizing her family photos. In the process, I have discovered photos of many Boone cousins. Please email me at if you are interested in copies, or if you think you can help identify some of my “unidentified” folks, or just want to exchange information. It seems the descendants of poor Israel got left out of a lot of the earlier Boone family histories!

    Here are the names of some of the ones I have identified in our family photo collection:
    Children of Sarah Elizabeth “Lizzie” Boone Shouse: Margaret, Wallace, and Frances (they lived primarily in OK and then CA) taken around 1914-1920. They may not know much about the Boones because Lizzie (my great-grandmother’s sister, died in 1914 when her children were small.

    Descendants of Rachel Josephine “Josie” Boone: Lizzie Hunt and her grandson Ronald Walker (I know for sure that these families lived in TX and came back to TN periodically to visit.) dated 9/20/1936.

    Descendants of Sarah Boone Henderson’s (sister of John, my 3x great-grandfather) son A.J., Sr. This family lived and died in Chattanooga, TN.

    A photo taken on Lookout Mtn., TN of my great-grandmother and 3 people identified as “Emma Boone, Edd Boone, and Lela Boone, 1920” I have not been able to connect them to anyone so far.

    Andrew Johnson Boone and his 3 daughters, Effie Lauderback, Bessie Lauderback, and Claudia Roach–lived in E. TN, primarily Bradley Co. There are two photographs of a large family group and several other smaller group photos; they are part of a series taken in June 1948 at what appears to be a Boone family reunion of sorts. It’s mostly the Israel Judson and Andrew Johnson Boone families, but there might be other Boones in there too. There are also several other smaller group photos taken at different times but featuring some of the same people/places.

    I am really hoping these are someone’s Holy Grail and that I get a lot of replies and requests! Looking forward to hearing from my long-lost cousins.

  26. David V. Scott March 28, 2017 at 8:29 am

    My mother was Mary Ellen Boone, daughter of John Wesley Boone, granddaughter of James Fletcher Boone. I would love to see an accurate Boone Family Tree from the first George Boone in England. We go back to Edward Boone, Daniel’s brother.

  27. elizabeth brock March 28, 2017 at 1:32 am

    im just starting out as my father is just talking to me we are directly related to Rebecca Boone my dad is sigel brock i really am wanting to trace through the cherokee side please feel free to email me if you all know my fathers name he lives in southern indiana

  28. Joe McDaniel March 23, 2017 at 3:45 pm

    My g/grandmother, Jeffalonia Spradley was the daughter of Elizabeth “Betsy” Boone (1826-1888), daughter of Samuel Boone (1771-1855) who was a nephew of Daniel Boone and grandson of Squire.

  29. Jeanette Barned March 23, 2017 at 12:37 pm

    Try to find information on Barnnie B. Boone.

  30. Pamela S McCorkle March 21, 2017 at 9:14 am

    I am told that I am a descendent of Israel Boone, Daniel’s brother. My great great grandmother’s name was Eva Mae Boone. She married a Dr. William M. Whalin. Just wondering if anyone can give me anymore information, as I am trying to connect the dots there. Thanks.

  31. MICHAEL HUGHES March 15, 2017 at 3:35 pm

    If I have it anywhere near correct-I’ve traced the line back from Daniel to John De Bohun(Lord of Middlehurst)-(1301-1367)and wife Cicely De Filliol(1324-1381). Finding French connections to Boones. Also it’s possible that we are related to Charles II(no verification yet).

  32. Stephanie Ann (Boone) Schreiner March 14, 2017 at 7:10 pm

    I am from the George Boone (brother of Daniel) line, through William Linville Boone, to Nestor Boone (who married Matilda Tribble) to Peter Tribble Boone who married Laura Sidney Bower, to Jesse Thomas Boone (who married Mary Catherine Hoy) to Jesse Robert Boone (who married Dorothy Alice Craig), my mom and dad.

  33. Christine H March 10, 2017 at 12:34 pm

    I am descended from Daniel Boone’s brother George Boone. George Boone was also a pretty spectacular guy too. I believe that he helped to start of the top 25 or 30 biggest metropolitan areas in the United States of America. As I recall this is the Cincinatti, Manassas, VA and another big city area. I will enlist someone with a United States history background to help me check my facts. So while indeed Daniel Boone is famous I am proud of my straight line descendant George Boone. Again my connection to many of the other Boone people might be so distant that it is hard to claim a strong heritage to each other. Usually once you hit 3rd cousin it is too far removed to be considered a strong link. (I will need an attorney to please help me with that I think that a family law attorney would probably know more about than I do).

  34. Kym Webb March 10, 2017 at 11:25 am

    From St. Louis, Missouri. Daniel is my 6th great-uncle. I’m related to Daniel Boone through his brother, George.

    George Boone
    John Linville Boone
    Alonzo Boone
    Richard Bass Boone
    David Crocket Boone
    Benjamin Bennett Boone
    Nancy Boone Pashea
    Kym Pashea Webb

    Hoping to hear from some relatives and learning more about the family history.

  35. Timothy E. Reeves February 1, 2017 at 9:16 am

    I am descended from Israel Boone. I live in MS.

  36. MICHAEL HUGHES January 8, 2017 at 2:28 pm

    My line of Boones goes from Israel(Daniel’s brother)-down to Jonathan-Thomas-James Madison-John Fagan- James-and Bertha Boone(my grandmother) . I have also located all of their gravesites.

  37. Louise Gunkel January 8, 2017 at 1:00 pm

    Hello, I believe I am a descendent of Ann or Hannah or Ann Hannah Boone, born in Berks County, PA in 1731. She married a William Winter. She seems to be a mystery. There are church records that confirm an Ann or Hannah Winter very close to the Daniel Boone homestead. Cannot find her exact connection to the family. Anyone else have information on her?

  38. MICHAEL HUGHES January 2, 2017 at 6:07 pm

    Daniel Boone’s brother Israel is the line I am directly descended from.

  39. David A Lynch December 19, 2016 at 6:34 pm

    Hello, my ancestor of the Boone family is Susannah Boone, daughter of George W. Boone, who married William Hearne (Hern). Their daughter, Theresa, married Benjamin F. Lynch (my 3rd great-grandparents).

  40. Susan Larsen December 14, 2016 at 10:24 am

    Greetings from Martha’s Vineyard! My name is Susan Marie Boone Larsen. My father was Daniel Wood Boone and my grandmother Alma Lincoln Robinette Boone studied the family genealogy back in the 1960’s. I have all of her documentation. One document claims that her research was validated and approved by the Boone Society. However, I cannot find a link to the frontiersman Daniel Boone. Would you have archived documentation from my grandmother? I have been delving in genealogy since my induction into the Daughters of the American Revolution in 1992 and have notebooks of documents. This missing information would add a crucial piece to my family history. Thank you in advance for your attention and assistance.

  41. Christine Weldon November 11, 2016 at 8:52 pm

    Hello to all the Boones, I have been told that I too am a 7th generation descendent of Daniel Boone,
    although I have yet to make the connection. My Great Aunt Lina Boone Jackson was the daughter of Rebecca
    Boone daughter of William Boone I believe. I also was told by my Grandmother that she had many of the Boone
    personal positions that she donated to one of the museums, I am not sure as to this location I believe it was in
    Kentucky. If anyone out there can shed some light on this my family would be so happy .
    Oh and Maire Seiber Cunningham we may be related as well if your family came from West Virginia.

  42. Ronnie Vaughn October 12, 2016 at 10:36 am

    Daniel Boone is my 7th great uncle. There are some assumptions being made because actual documentation has not been found to prove the relationship between my 4th great-grandmother Sarah Frank and my 5th great-grandmother Hannah Boone Frank. But my Ancestry DNA is proving that I have many Boone cousins. Hannah Boone Frank married Robert Frank. Hannah’s parents were Samuel Boone and Sarah Day Boone. Samuel’s brother is Daniel Boone.

  43. Cyndy September 4, 2016 at 9:37 pm

    My 4rth great- grandmother is Susan Boone Arthur. She was a very strong lady married to Lt Robert Arthur (1737-1816). I have found much about Robert’s places of residence and their children. I know Susan died in Brokenstraw PA 1815. I do not know her BIRTHDATE or her PARENTS.
    I would appreciate any information about this precious lady!

  44. Karen L Sanchez September 3, 2016 at 2:08 am

    Hi My name Karen Sanchez, my grandmothers maiden name was Boone. (Boon) I traced her Boone relations back to a Thomas Boone,(Boon) who was father to Abraham. Thomas was born in 1720 in England and deceased in Bareneed Newfoundland and Labrador Canada. I am trying to see if there is a link between the George and Mary that first came to America.. I am stuck. My grandmother said we were related to Daniel Boone. My grandmother is Isabelle Katherine Boone, she passed away already, her father was Albert Ernest Boone Sr. I have been searching Family search,org. Thomas Boon was the 7th generation back. Do you know if there is a link? I would like to join up with your Boone society but I am just now learning this. I can join a little later. I love your site, I liked you on face book. You have all done a wonderful job and service to others.

  45. Laura Christopher August 27, 2016 at 3:36 pm

    Hello, I’m Barbara Chandler, and have lived on the Ealy Hollow Rd along the Cumberland River in Bell County KY all my life. It is marked with a Boone Trace sign and I was wondering if the folks were coming down that way on their way to Pine Mountain State Park.

  58. Kathleen Boone Naylor May 11, 2016 at 5:15 pm

    Hi, I am in Texas. I am trying to find my missing links, Henry Boone’s (1835-1899) parents. Hope there is a connection to Daniel, but que sera, sera.

    My connection to the Boone family are Bryan and Looney family ancestors. Thanks for your efforts in keeping this history alive

  60. John Michael Burton May 5, 2016 at 11:27 am

    Thank yall for the work and interest in this great era of American History. My ancestors were Sgt Peter Looney,and Captain David Looney of whom Mr D. Boone served under as a Lt. My kin were Burton,Tate, Bryan,Looney,Campbell who were all heroes in Southwest Colonial Virginia. I am honored to be a ancestor of these real American Frontiersmen

  61. Carole Whitaker Callahan May 3, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    I began researching my lineage mostly because I did not grow up knowing my maternal nor paternal relatives very well, if at all, and wanted to know more about my roots. In researching, I found my 5th great grandmother to be Catherine “Katie” Boone Whitaker. This was a confounding mess for awhile because on the ancestry site I was using, records confused the cousins, both named Rebecca Bryan, who married the Boone cousins, Daniel and John. After some good research I have confirmed that Daniel was my 1st cousin 8x removed, and not my 8th great grandfather, as I had originally gathered. My research continues, I am learning fascinating histories of both the Boone and Bryan families, and am very excited to find this site. I plan to become a member in the coming weeks!

  62. Tracey Haeckler April 30, 2016 at 12:49 pm

    Hello from Oregon!

    I grew up listening to my great-grandfather tell stories of his grandmother, Mourning Ann, rocking him as a small child in Sumner, OR (near Burton Prairie or Fairview). He also talked about picking apples in the famous orchard on the Oregon Coast near Yaquina Bay when he visited from Coos County. Just a few stories I remember of so many!

    My relationship to Daniel Boone is:

    Daniel Boone
    Jesse Boone
    Alphonso Boone
    George Boone
    Thomas Boone
    Ralph Boone (my great-grandfather) 1900-1994
    Donald Boone (my grandfather) 1924-2005
    Linda Mae Boone (my mother and only child of Donald Boone)1947-1997

    I live in Jacksonville, OR and occasionally visit the grave of Mourning Ann (buried in the Jacksonville Cemetery next to her husband George).

    Love to read the amazing stories about my family.

    Thank you!

  63. Shannon Rickey April 27, 2016 at 8:21 pm

    Hello from Fort Knox, Hardin County, Kentucky. The Army brought my family here 25 years ago, when I was in high school and my father was stationed here. Over the years I have moved away and returned half a dozen times; never seeming to be able to shake my draw to this place.

    Roughly a month ago I began to understand my draw to here when I discovered that Squire Boone and Jane “Big Granny” VanCleve are my sixth great grandparents by way of their son Moses, and Mosesβ€˜ son Squire who later migrated to Boone County, Iowa.

    For decades we have been trying to trace my mothers ancestors, (my mother is from Iowa – born and raised), as her mother, Maxine Betts Nagle, passed away from breast cancer when my mother was a year old.

    It was a similar circumstance with my grandmothers, grandmother, Maria Seibers Cunningham, who died in her late twenties. Maria was a daughter of Hannah C. Boone Seibers. Hannah would have been the last of my direct ancestors to carry the Boone name and I believe it is highly probable that the family history and stories of her grandfather Judge Moses and explorer great-grandfather Squire died out with her. Though I believe I have seen accounting in census records of my great-grandmother Flossie Cunningham Betts, being in the care of Augustus and Hannah as a young child after Maria’s death.

    Needless to say, a whole new world has opened up since this discovery and I have been enthralled and in total awe and astonishment in the history and roots I never knew existed. Never in a million years did I believe I had any ties what-so-ever to Kentucky, but it turns out I have very deep roots here; farmland less than five miles from my house where Enoch Morgan Boone and family are buried on land that was his farm; land that was annexed by Fort Knox where I work for the Army as a civilian. I literally hit my knees when I found the cemetery less than a 1/4 mile from a road I routinely travel. The likewise is true as it pertains to my routine travels between my home and Saint Louis, driving through Meade County, across the bridge and passed the very road that takes you to Squire Boone’s final resting place.

    This has been such a powerful and impactful discovery. I am so incredibly happy to have found your site and hope to connect with other Boone ancestors.

    Best regards!

    Hello Boone Society,

    I have a relationship through George Boone + Ann Linville (George Boone is Daniel Boone’s brother) and Ann Linville is George Boone’s wife. I’m going to do my best to show up at the Boone Society reunion in 2016 in Missouri. I’ve never been to Missouri and would like to see what that area is like.
