1. My Ancestors
Squire and Sarah Boone are my g-g-g-g-g-g-g-great grandparents through the infamous marriage of their eldest child Sarah to the "worldling" (non-Quaker) John Willcockson (var. Wilcockson, Wilcoxson, Wilcoxen, Wilcox). Until researching this historic marker, I had no idea that I live within walking distance (by 18th-century standards) of my ancestors' homeplace. John and Sarah's tract is also visible on the Lagle Land Grant Map and plaque image included with this entry.
