Squire Boone Tombstone

An image from my adopted home of Davie County…


Tombstone of Squire Boone, father of Daniel Boone, at Joppa Cemetery, Mocksville, NC. [Photograph by Jerry Cotten; original negative given by Jerry Cotten; 80-19]

My favorite story to tell about this tombstone and cemetery is that it is right beside the old Wal-Mart shopping center in Mocksville. The name of the shopping center?…”Squire Boone Plaza.”
