Sarah was born to Sarah Jarman Morgan and Squire Boone, Quakers of Berks County, Pennsylvania. She was the elder sister of Daniel Boone, famous frontiersman.

On May 25, 1742 (Recorded: 29 May 1742, Berks County, Pennsylvania) Sarah married John Willcockson. John was a "Worldling", not a Quaker, so this union was "Out of Unity" with the Friends of Chalfont, New Britain, Colony of Pennsylvania. It was the first offense of this kind by a member of the Boone family. Eventually Sarah and her parents would sever all fellowship with that Meeting House.

Sarah bore 15 children to John, including:

David Willcockson b: October 22, 1742 in Lancaster Co.,PA
Nancy Willcockson b: May 17, 1743 in Lancaster Co.,PA
John Willcockson , Jr. b: September 6, 1744 in Lancaster Co.,PA
