1800 Tax List for Shelby County, Kentucky
"George Boone.....Shelby.....8-7-1800"
.....also on tax list for Shelby County that year were Enoch, Isaiah, Jonathan, Josiah, Moses, Squire, William, and William Jr. There were no taxpayers with the Boon spelling in Shelby County that year.

The parentage and marriage of George are proven, among other documents, by the Quaker Meeting Records, which were very thorough in documenting life events of their members. The list of their children is disagreed upon by various researchers, and I suggest you confirm your lineage with your own research.
