Darby Township: On the Mokormpates Kill, and just above the northern line of the Calcoon Hook patent, was a tract of two hundred and fifty acres, known in early times as "Boon's Forest," which was laid out to Andres Swason Boon April 13, 1680. From this sturdy Swedish settler a greater man descended, or at least he has secured more of the world's attention, than did his ancestor in Delaware County, - Daniel Boone, the pioneer of Kentucky. On the Boon tract the Knowles Presbyterian Church is located." From the History of Delaware County, Pennsylvania by Henry Graham Ashmead, Philadelphia, L.H. Everts & Co., 1884

Knowles Family Cemetery is located directly behind 414 Hillcrest Ave., Glenolden, and accessible from the end of Hillcrest Ave. It is bordered by Interboro School District playing fields on the other 3 sides.
