Squire Boone and Sarah Morgan Boone, the parents of America's pioneer hero, Daniel Boone, are buried in Mocksville, NC, at the Joppa Cemetery. This is actually a graveyard as it surrounded at one time the independent Joppa Church. Squire Boone helped establish the church after breaking away from the Society of Friends in Pennsylvania before moving to North Carolina in 1752. Squire is a given name and not any sort of title. One son is named Squire Boone, Jr. The Boone family includes others with that name as well.
