Name of Hezekiah Boone's Wife

1) The marriage of Hezekiah Boone to Priscilla Truelock. Do you have anything to substantiate her maiden name? All over the internet, people have her name as Freelove. This is due to a number of people claiming lineage through Solomon, and daughters that are named Freelove. I know there is another Boon lineage that has this name in it, and I believe that people have mistakenly tried to tie to the Daniel Boone family.

From Dorthy Mack:
I changed the wife of Hezekiah Boone to Trueblood according to a said to be bonafide descendant. I have changed it back to Priscilla Freelove since it appears she is correct name due to naming pattern of his descendants. The person, now deceased, I had met at the St Louis Family Reunion in 2004 if I’m not mistaken. She apparently was confused. I will try to get information corrected. The parents of Priscilla have still not been located, partially due to the differences of opinion around her maiden name.

2) As far as the son, Solomon and his marriage to Lavina Wells. Do you have any records for Lavina's maiden name? I had found this record and now, I am not sure whether this is a different marriage to the same man, or a different man. "Virginia Marriages, 1785-1940," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XRMD-SZZ : 11 February 2018), Salomon Boone and Vienna Welch, 03 Jul 1792; citing Wythe County, Virginia, reference ; FHL microfilm 34,254.

From Dorthy Mack:
While we all believe this to be his marriage record, all bibles and family records have indicated that her name was Lavina Wells. No birth record or parents have been found.

3) The daughter of Solomon, is her name Truelove as shown in "United States Census, 1850," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MHJ5-FF5 : 12 April 2016), Truelove Rainbolt in household of John Rainbolt, Perry, Lawrence, Indiana, United States; citing family 1897, NARA microfilm publication M432 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.). or Freelove as shown on her headstone? https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/5134997

From Dorthy Mack:
This is the source of much of the confusion for all descendants. It is quite possible that over the years the "oral" tradition took over and the name became Freelove. The headstone was placed there in recent history, it is not an original headstone.
