Information on public trees at Ancestry about wife of Israel Boone

Information on public trees at Ancestry about wife of Israel Boone

Surnames: MAUGRIDGE, BOONE
There are numerous public trees at Ancestry indicating that Israel Boone's wife was Martha Maugridge. (Israel, brother of Daniel.) Martha's father is listed as John Maugridge.

In years past, no one seemed to know the name of his wife. She was always referred to as "Indian woman".
Many of these public trees indicate that Martha was born when John was 96 years old and his wife was 77 years old! I find that hard to believe.

I'm not sure myself about the identity of Israel's wife. Ive read stories that Squire Boone was reprimanded by members of his church for allowing and supporting Israel's marriage to an Indian woman and that was the reason the family left Pennsylvania.

I would like to know if those who have Israel's wife listed as Martha Maugridge also have documentation about her name.

I have a feeling the wrong information was submitted to someone's tree and others attached it to their tree.

Anyone else have any thoughts about this?

I agree with you! I do not believe that John Maugridge and wife Mary Milton were the parents of Israel's wife, Martha Margaret, who weas born in 1726. As far as I can find, both John and Mary died before Martha was born! John died in Nov. 1700; Mary died in Aug. 1697! Think that lets them off the hook, don't you?

Thanks Dorothy. My research on the Boones has been on the back burner for a while...this has renewed my interest!
