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
Jacob H. 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.
