Daughter of Squire Boone & Sarah Morgan. Buried under apple tree where she & her husband first lived.
Married William Grant II about 1750 on the Yadkin River. At the time of their marriage a Dutchman said to Grant, "Well, Billy, Betsy will make you a good wife if you will take her down at the first loaf." She was a beautiful, high-spirited woman, and the Dutchman thought she needed subduing (Spraker, pg 61).
Up to the time of the Indian outbreak in 1759, the Western portions and borders o the Carolinas had grown and been settled rapidly, but during this outbreak we find "the Bryans, and probably some of the Boone connection, took refuge in Fort Dobbs. Samuel Boone and family removed the old settlements in South Carolina, and old Squire Boone and wife (Sarah), his son Daniel Boone, and son-in-law William Grant, with their families, retired to Virginia and Maryland." It was while the Grants were living in Virginia, near where Washington, D.C., now stands, that their son William was born. Except for this short period they lived in North Carolina until the fall of 1779, when they moved to Kentucky, probably going out with Daniel Boone. A description of this moving in Draper Mss. 22 C 16 says, "It was like an army coming out. There was no occasion to strike fire of night. They wo'd be camped 1/2 mile maybe, all along in a string. The road was worked into steps, thro the cane, where they co'dn'tgo out of the regular track." It is recorded in this same Mss. that Mrs. Grant and her daughter "came out" in the fall of 1779, but it is not stated which daughter this was. They came by way of Fort Boonesborough, where they stopped awhile. Then the four Bryan brothers (William, Morgan, James, and Joseph) and helped establish Bryan's Station, five miles northeast of the present city of Lexington,which at that time was a small settlement enclosed within a stockade.
About 1783 William Grant procured a pre-emption and settlement of 1400 acres on the Little Elkhorn River in Kentucky, but finally became discouraged and resolved to return to North Carolina. He sold 400 acres of his land for an Indian pony worth about .00, which was stolen by Indians ten days afterwards with all his other horses. This loss precluded the idea of returning to North Carolina and the plan was abandoned. He remained on the Elkhorn. The log house which he built there was still standing as late as 1851, in its original state, the roof put on with wooden pins. This house was one ofthe preaching places of the Craigs (Baptist preachers), for although in her early years Elisabeth (Boone) Grant had been a strict "Friend" (Quaker), she and her husband soon after their marriage became members of the Baptist Church and never left it. Both Grant and his wife died there, he in 1804 at the age of 78, and she some years later. They are buried under an apple tree which he set out on the place when they first went there to live. This homestead descended to their son William (III), where together with his wife were buried there also, and as late as 1868 it was owned and occupied by a Grant descendant. (Spraker, pgs 61 - 62)
(Daniel) Boone's cunning and love of pranks are also recorded in many of the childhood anecdotes Lyman Copeland Draper and others collected later. One tale Boone himself liked to repeat in old age concerned his confinement to the house during an outbreak of smallpox. His mother would not let him or his sister Elizabeth outdoors to play. Sick of the imprisonment, young Daniel and Elizabeth decided to catch the smallpox themselves and get it over with so they could go out and play as usual. That night they slipped away to a neighbor's house and crawled into bed with friends who were infected with smallpox, then returnded home before daybreak.
When a few days later the redmarks began to apper on him, Sarah grew suspicious. "Now, Daniel," she said to her son, " I want thee to tell thy mother the whole truth." Daniel readily confessed the initiative he had taken. "Thee naughty little gorrel," she cried, "why did thee not tell me before, so I could have had thee better prepared." Sarah called him an Old English word for knave but was too affectionate to punish him. It was the kind of story Boone as an old man liked to recall of his beloved moher.
