George Boon/Elizabeth Apple Philadelphia brick wall

Posted: 3 Jan 2011 9:35AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Boon, Apple or Apel, Appel, Smith, Chrisman, Crissman etc
My family's brick wall is George Boon, born Oct 13, 1813 married Elizabeth Mary Apple, born about April 1815. These are the parents of:
Joseph Parr Boon
Mary Ann Boon
George Boon
Williamson Boon
Jacob H. Boon
Charles Boon
Harrison Boon
Emma Virginia Boon
Jennie E. Boon

George Boon was a blacksmith, found living in South Mulberry, in 1840 Phila census. Appears to have married daughter of Jacob Boon and Mary Ann Crissman or Cressman.
Death record of George Boon shows Thomas ? - for father -
no mother listed.

Have reached a brick wall, trying to find parents of George Boon. Have searched online records on children of George and Elizabeth Boon - who married Smith siblings (parents
George Smith and Deborah Jones) - but cannot find marriage
records of these, nor can I find marriage record of George Boon/Elizabeth Apple.

Have searched census records, and still have not found any clues. Have gone to Mt. Moriah cemetery and hacked through the weeds/bushes and found tombstones - but these have no clues.

Appears the Smith siblings were of Quaker descent.

Have found City directory info on Jacob Apple, George Smith, tax assessment records - but still no clues as to where to search further.


Need help on where to focus efforts on possible information.
