Pending unlinking a family line. Humphreys/Boone

+5 votes
I think I need to disconnect from a family line.  Additional research on my Humphreys line indicates it should not be connected to the Boone family.  Boone-1987

I believe Sarah's father was not the John Boone  Boone-1367.

The additional research is on Find-A-Grave, John Boon b. 1755

This reseach was done by a cousin of my mother who still lives in the area where the family located 120 years ago and has done hands of reseach in cemeteries and local records in Virginia, West Virginia and other locations.

I do not think this will affect descendents except those I have added on WikiTree, will I encounter any issures doing this?

A concern I have is that the family reseach done many years ago that connects to the Boone family is widely spread among my distant cousins.  I know that the misinformation  is on other sites and would like to protect this Boon ancestor from being reconnected later.

Best answer

I believe Sarah (Boone) Humphrey is correctly associated as the daughter of  John Boon (Boone-1367) and Elizabeth Alford (Alford-1000).

My reading of the Find-A-Grave entry is that the claim that John (Boone-1367) was the nephew of Daniel Boone has not been proven, and is based solely on the statement in his pension application that refers to "uncle Daniel Boon" - his children do not seem to be the issue, but HIS parentage. If there is unlinking needed I would suggest it is John (Boone-1367) from Israel Boone (Boone-107) and Mary Carter (Carter-7252)

See also John Boone in the  'undetermined connections' (p. 492) in Spraker's The Boone Family

While there may have been further research done, the above work (p.38) also indicates that the wife of Israel Boone (Boone-107) was unknown. The only Mary Carter mentioned in the book is in a footnote (p.61) as a possible wife of Jonathon Boone, one of Israel's siblings.

I have been away, but am now ready to carry out the task of unlinking John (Boone-1367) from Israel Boone (Boone-107) and Mary Carter (Carter-7252).  I have discussed this with the cousin who did the research presented on Find-A-Grave and he agrees.

I hope someone can help me with the disconnetion / de-linking.
