William Linville Boone was the third child of George (brother of Daniel) and Ann or Nancy (Linville) Boone. About 1780, it is said he came from Virginia with his parents, who were among the very early pioneers, to Madison County, Ky., where in 1780, his father founded Boone's Station, about one and one-half or two miles north of the present courthouse in Richmond. In 1789, he was married to Nancy Grubbs, the marriage rites being solemnized by Rev. Christopher Harris, of Old Baptist Faith, who was a brother of Lucy (Harris) Grubbs, thus being an uncle of the bride. After his uncle, Edward Boone, had been killed by Indians in 1780, William, his father, George Boone, and his uncle Daniel Boone, were in the party which went out to bring in the mutilated body. In the fall of 1799, when Daniel Boone moved to Missouri, William L. Boone was one of the party which went by boat, but he did not stay long and returned without trying to get a grant of land from Spain. (Missouri was then Spanish territory.) During the closing years of the 18th, and the early part of the 19th Centuries there were two men by the name of William Boone living in Madison County, Ky. One is the subject of this sketch, and the other was probably his cousin, William Boone, whose wife was Margaret. In Deed Book "G," page 431, we find "on 6th February, 1810, Higgason Grubbs, and wife, Lucy (Harris), for 1500 dollars, conveyed to William Boone a tract of land, granted by the Commonwealth of Ky., to Higgason Grubbs, 2 March, 1789, on the waters of Muddy Creek and the Kentucky River." Again in Deed Book "G," page 533, "on 11 October, 1810, Edward Boone and his wife, Dorcas, of Shelby County, Ky., for 600 pounds, conveyed to William Boone, of Madison County, 185 acres of land on Tates and Otter Creeks in Madison County." The Edward Boone mentioned was probably William Boone's brother Edward, whose wife was Mrs. Dorcas (Simpson) White. It is thought that both of these conveyances were made to the subject of this sketch, son of George and Anne (Linville) Boone, for George Boone Sr., owned lands near Richmond, on the head waters of the Tates and Otter Creeks. The two creeks head together in the northern part of the city of Richmond, where the ridge divides the head stream of the two creeks. "On 2 February, 1810, William Boone and wife, Nancy (Grubbs) conveyed to Richard Tunstall Jr., land on Tates Creek in Madison County, Ky., adjoining Berry and others." Witnesses to the deed were Rebecca Harris, and their two daughters, Lucy and Mrs. Milly (Boone) Carson, wife of William Carson. The land of Lindsay Carson. father of the William Carson mentioned above, adjoined the William Boone land. James Berry was an uncle of Nancy (Grubbs) Boone and thus a great uncle of William Boone. In 1811, William Boone and family, including his son-in-law, Andrew Tribble, with his family, moved to Shelby County, Ky. Just how long he lived here we do not know. After a time (1818) he moved to Missouri, settling near Columbia, Boone Co., living there until after the death of his wife, Nancy (Grubbs) in 1835, when soon after he returned to Kentucky, and again located in Shelby County. In Heitman's Historical Register (1789-19--), page 230, we find the record of William Boone of Kentucky, being 3d Lieut. of Rangers on 1 Aug., 1813, in Illinois Territory; and honorably discharged "15 (Aug.?) 1815." This may refer to William Linville Boone. In 1845, he was sent by the Kentucky Legislature to Missouri to gain the consent of Nathan Boone, son of Daniel, for the removal of the bodies of Daniel and his wife, Rebecca (Bryan) Boone, from Missouri to Frankfort, Ky. He was successful in this mission, and was one of the pall-bearers at the time of their removal. In 1840, at the age of seventy-two he was married a second time to Mrs. Ann (Bryan) Perry. A few years later (1847), he died and was buried on the old Major Andrew Tribble farm in Shelby County. In those days each family had its own private burial ground.
