    "On 4 Oct 1750, Squire Boone received a Land Warrant and survey for a 640-acre tract "lying... upon Grant's creek alias licking creek" in present Davie County. He received a grant for the 640-acres on the present Elisha and Dutchman creeks 30 April 1753 and a second grant on Bear Creek 29 December 1753. (A roadside marker located this Bear Creek site on Highway 64 West.)
    The eleven children of Squire and Sarah (Morgan) Boone all came and lived in present Davie County. They were Sarah (Boone) Wilcockson, Israel, Samuel, Jonathan, Elizabeth (Boone) Grant, Daniel, Mary (Boone) Bryan, George, Edward, Squire (Jr.), and Hannah (Boone) Stewart Pennington.
    Squire Boone's nephew, John Boone (1727-1803), and wife Rebecca (Bryan?) Boone (c1735-1820) received a 630-acre grant on Hunting Creek 21 December 1753. Their nine children were born there. Most of this family migrated to Tennessee, though some of their descendants lived at this Hunting Creek site until the 1850s and some distant relatives still live in Davie County.
    In addition to Squire and Sarah Boone, John and Rebecca Boone and John Wilcockson are buried here in Joppa Cemetery in unmarked graves. Israel Boone and his wife are probably buried here also.
    Squire and Sarah Boone deeded the Elisha and Dutchman creeks grant to son Squire Jr. on 12 October 1759. On the same day they also deeded the Bear creek tract to Daniel and Rebecca.

    Sarah Boone Wilcoxson was the first child to survive into adulthood of Squire Boone and Sarah Morgan Boone. Her famous brother, Daniel Boone, frontiersman, was Squire and Sarah's sixth child. Sarah and her husband, John Wilcoxson were some of the earliest settlers of Fort Boonesborough in Kentucky County, Virginia. Sarah is designated as a Revolutionary War Patriot because "she was at the fort when it was attacked in September 1778 by over 400 Indians allied with the British and Tory Militiamen" which lasted for 10 1/2 days. Her designation by Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) and Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is "Defender of the fort." "Sarah's husband John was not present at the time of the siege. John, a member of the Kentucky County Virginia Infantry, was away fighting Indians allied with the British. John's designation is "Soldier" in the Revolutionary War."
