Israel Boone
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 25, 1759
Yadkin County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Aug. 19, 1782
Fayette County
Kentucky, USA

Israel Boone was the son of Daniel Boone & Rebecca Bryan. He was born in Bear Creek, Yadkin Co., NC.

Israel had the following siblings: James, Susannah Boone Hays, Jemima Boone Callaway; Levinia Boone Scholl, Rebecca Boone Goe, Daniel Morgan Boone, Jessie Bryan Boone, William Bryan Boone, and Nathan (Nathaniel) Boone.

Israel was sick when Boone commanded forces to go to Bryan's Station, but a family tradition says that young Boone dragged himself from bed and accompanied the army only after his father had sternly reminded him of his duty.

Israel died in the battle of Blue Licks, Fayette Co., KY, after his father, Daniel Boone, had ordered his men to cross back over the Licking downstream. Daniel stayed to fight to cover & ordered Israel to run for it, but out of love, Israel disobeyed. "Father, I won't leave you," he insisted. A moment later, a musket ball caught him in the3 neck. Later, Daniel would say that Israel's death was the hardest blow he ever felt. [Source:}
