Isaiah Boone

of Montgomery County, Maryland

The following is a descendant report for Isaiah and Hannah (Pancoast) Boone of Montgomery County, Maryland and their family. This family began to interest me because of my research into the possible ancestors of my Great-Grandfather James Thomas Boone, which led me to Maryland and the Boone families who lived there in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Isaiah and his family lived in the verge of the Sandy Spring Monthly Meeting in Montgomery County, where their children married members of other prominent Quaker families, including the Brooke, Hopkins, Hughes, and Janney families.

I compiled this information from several sources, which are listed as footnotes to the rtf file mentioned below. Hinshaw's Quaker Meeting indexes were valuable for their data, as well as his commentary about the families. MacKenzie's compiled genealogies provided much information about the Hopkins families in Maryland. Peden's Maryland Quaker Records books contributed substantially. A fellow researcher sent me many pages of data from the Maryland Genealogical Society Bulletin. The librarian of the Montgomery County Historical Society was most helpful. I was also lucky enough to receive significant data and assistance from people who responded to my queries on the Internet. My thanks to all who had a part in this compilation!
