Mary Boone, sister of Daniel Boone, was born November 14, 1736 to Squire and Sarah (Morgan) Boone in Exeter, Berks Co. Pennsylvania.[1] She moved with her family to North Carolina in the Spring of 1750.[2]
Mary married William Bryan in 1755 or 1756 in Rowan County, North Carolina.[3] William and Mary (Boone) Bryan had 10 children:
  • Samuel Bryan (married Isabella Hunt 1775)

  • Sarah Bryan (married Col. William Chinn;[4] moved to Missouri)
  • William Bryan
  • Phoebe Bryan
  • Hannah Bryan
  • John Bryan
  • Abner Bryan
  • Elizabeth Bryan
  • Mary Bryan
After William's death in 1781, Mary married General Charles Smith.[5]

Mary Boone. [7]

Mary was born in 1746. She passed away in 1819. [8]


  1. recorded in Exeter MM records as November 3, 1736 (old style)
  2. from her father's biography, apparently from "Society of Colonial Wars"
  3. sources differ on year; Notable Southern Families says: "[About 1750] Squire Boone moved from Pennsylvania to North Carolina, and became a near neighbor [to the Bryans]. Here Daniel Boone and Rebecca Bryan were married in 1755 and William Bryan and Mary Boone the same year."
  4. corrected scanning error from "Ghinn"
  5. Listing of children in biography and 2nd marriage information from Notable Southern Families, Volume II.
  6. location in data above - that she died in her stepson John Smith's Kentucky home - is from Boone-875, which seems more likely, as she is buried in Kentucky.

Hi to all profile managers for Mary (Boone) Bryan, wife of William. It appears they have two different daughters named Mary - one married Ingels and one married Van Hoose. Does anyone have primary proof they can add to the daughter(s)' profile(s) to help straighten out who's who? Thanks, Liz
