Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 19, 1740
Berks County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Oct. 6, 1780
Clark County
Kentucky, USA

Note: Edward Boone, Daniel's brother, most likely died in what is present day Montgomery County, Kentucky at the Grassy Lick. See articles about Edward Boone (two) by Donna Dodd Terrell Jones, B.A., M.A., J.D.. on the Journal of Kentucky History and Genealogy. Where he died was, at the time of his death, a part of Fayette County, Ky. and then it became a part of Bourbon County, Ky. and then a part of Clark County, Ky and then, and FINALLY (so far), the legislature made it into Montgomery County, Kentucky. After the Civil War there was much confusion about the county line between Bourbon and Montgomery but Grassy Lick ended up in Montgomery.

Edward Boone was born in Exeter Twp, Berks Co., PA, to Squire Boone & Sarah Morgan.

He had the following siblings: Sarah, Israel, Samuel, Jonathan, Elizabeth Boone Grant, Daniel Boone, famous Pioneer; Jacob Boone, Mary Boone Bryan, George W., Nathaniel , Squire Boone Jr., and Hannah Boone Stewart Pennington.

Edward married Martha Bryan in Eaton Baptist Church, Yadkin Co., NC; they had the following children:
Charity Boone - 4 October, 1760 - 7 April, 1843
Jane Boone - 18 September, 1762 - 1 December, 1812
Mary Boone - 5 December, 1764 - 28 September, 1825
George Boone - 28 April, 1767 - 10 June, 1841 Joseph Boone - 1768 - May 25, 1847
Sarah Boone - 6 March, 1771 - 18 July, 1866

He was killed by Indians at Blue Lick, Clark Co., KY.


Edward was one of the signers on May 1, 1780, of Petition #12 that resulted in splitting Kentucky County, Virginia, into 3 counties: Jefferson, Fayette, and Lincoln. Part of the petition reads, "That the Militia Inhabitants of the north side of Kaintucky amount to about 400 with 11 fortified posts that the nearest settlement to the Courthouse is at least 40 miles and the farthest about 70 miles that the River Kentuckey is rendered impassable half the year by high waters & is ever inconvenient and Dangerous " The petition was approved by the Virginia Legislature.
