William Bryan, an uncle of Rebecca (Bryan) Boone married Daniel Boone's sister, Mary about 1755 in Rowan County where the Boones and Bryans were neighbors. It is believed that it was at their wedding that Daniel and Rebecca first met. Olive Boone, wife of Nathan Boone, the youngest child of Daniel and Rebecca, stated that she had heard them say that the first time they ever saw each other was at a wedding.
They were married in a triple wedding ceremony with two other couples. Daniel's father, Squire Boone, performed the marriage ceremony, as the Justice of the Peace. According to Nathan, the young couple lived for awhile in a house on the property of Squire Boone, before moving to a place of their own.
