Susannah Boone
Susannah BOONE, Daughter of Daniel & Rebecca Bryan
Susannah was born 2 (3?) November 1760 at the Boone home on the Yadkin River in North Carolina. In the family Bible her date of birth is given as 3 November 1760 but the date was added at a later time and her actual date of birth is believed to be 2 November 1760. She died 19 October 1800 in St. Charles County, Missouri, only one year after the move from Kentucky. Susannah was buried on the family farm (Spanish Land Grant #1670) in what is now Matson, Missouri in the Missouri River bottoms. The cemetery was washed away by floods and her grave can no longer be found. A small rocking chair passed down in the Hays family and now housed at the Daniel Boone Home in Missouri, is said to have belonged to Susannah. The family says she brought it with her in the Boone's dugout canoe when they all moved from Kentucky.
 Susannah married William Hays in March, 1775 at Fort Blackmore on the Clinch River in Virginia.
He was born in North Carolina on 13 December 1754.  He accompanied Daniel Boone on his first expedition to cut The Wilderness Road into Kentucky. William was a soldier and was well educated. He became a Captain in Captain John Holder's company at Boonesborough in 1779. He and Susannah moved with her parents to Missouri in 1799. William Hayes was killed by James Davis, his son-in-law, on 13 December 1804 in St. Charles County.
