Boonie, Squire

Boonie, Squire a Baptist minister, was born in Berks County, Pa., in 1737, and was a brother of the famous Daniel Boone. Until 1770 his residence was a few miles from Wilkesborugh, N. C. He was for some time the companion of his brother in making explorations in the state of Kentucky. In 1775 he had his home in a fort in Boonesborough, where he remained until 1779, when he built a fort in what is now Shelby County. For some time he resided in Louisville, Ky., and spent the last part of his life in what was then the territory of Indiana, where he died in 1815. The only official act of his of which we have any account was his marrying the first white persons who were married in Kentucky. His son, of the same name, and his grandson, Thomas Boone, were worthy Baptist ministers in Kentucky. See Cathcart, Baptist Encyclop. p. 113. (J. C. S.)
