1775: JACOB BOONE settled about 1775 in the beautiful valley on Maggoty Creek. The mill and homestead which JACOB BOONE built at Boone Mill remained in his family for many years. Nearby is the burial ground, known as Boone-Hardy graveyard, where he and many of his descendants are buried.  He was born in 1749, and died in 1815. He and his brother John both began paying taxes in Bedford County which later became a part of Franklin County, as early as 1782 and 1783.  The first record of JACOB'S permanent residence in Franklin is in connection with the purchase of land on Maggoty Creek on May 1, 1786. This land was doubtless used for the establishment of a mill. In the same year, he purchased more land and probably established his home.  John Boone owned land on Glade Creek, a branch of Roanoke River, in January 1769.  His land adjoined that of John Thompson and John Mills (see Deed Book 16, page 80, Abstracts of Augusta County, later Botetourt County,
and now Roanoke County.)  Whether he lived there or in Bedford, which is now Franklin, is unknown.  He later lived between  Little Creek and Blackwater River about four miles south of the town of Boone Mill.  His children were John, Mary, Elizabeth, Catherine, Jacob, Abram, Joseph and
Nancy.
