      John Boone is thought to have been born in Berks County, Pennsylvania, in 1727, the only child of Ann Farmer Boone, first wife of Benjamin Boone. Since approximately nine years elapsed between John Boone's birth and his father's second marriage, it is likely that John lived in the home of his uncle Squire while his father was a widower. John Boone is though[t] to have married before settling in North Carolina, but neither the date nor the place is known. Although there are a number of documents to prove that his wife's first name was Rebecca, no record has been found to indicate anything further about her name or family connections. On December 21, 1753, John and Rebecca Boone received a grant of 630 acres from the Earl of Granville. This land was on Hunting Creek in the vicinity of what is now Center Church, in Davie County, North Carolina. The cabin which John Boone built was within a few miles of his uncle Squire Boone. Since there is no mention of any owners of adjoining land in their deed, it is assumed that John and Rebecca Boone were among the very earliest settlers on Hunting Creek. On their deed is the notation, "Delivered to Squire Boone."

      John Boone was buried on his plantation on Hunting Creek due west of Mocksville, county seat of the present Davie County. The exact date of his death is not known, but on August 3, 1803, letters of administration were issued to Benjamin Boone and John Boone (Jr.) for the estate of John Boone, deceased. He probably died in July, 1803, possibly earlier. It was November 12, of that year, when his son-in-law Mark Whitaker, in Fayette County, Kentucky, executed power of attorney to Benjamin Boone to look after his interests in the settlement of the estate of John Boone, deceased. Rebecca Boone, widow of John Boone, made a will on August 26, 1815. As her will was probated August 23, 1822 (Rowan County Will Book H, p. 169), she probably died in July or August, 1822. It is assumed that she was buried by John Boone's side.
