The John and Sarah Boone Wilcoxson house in Mocksville, North Carolina in the 1980s, still standing over 200 years old.

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."
