Rebecca Boone married Phillip Goe in 1788 when both were still in their mid-teens. That youthful union eventually produced a large number of little Goes. Actually, Boone was not very fond of his son-in-law. According to old accounts, Goe was given to drink and was not a good provider for his family. Daniel put him in business on a couple of occasions only to end up with the tab after Goe went belly-up. The Goes lived in a number of places in the state probably as a result of Phillip’s failed business ventures. Phillip died while the family was living in Nicholas County and presumably is buried there. Rebecca died at her sister’s house in Clark County and is buried not far from the site of the famous fort that will be forever linked to her father by name and legend.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Rebecca by comparing test results with other
carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Rebecca:
