e-mail from Leta – – The Benjamin Boon you list with the daughters is not from Jacob. Mr. Flythe agreed with this and they are what I call the District 9 Boons. In District 9 there are loads of Boons of the early period but no relation to the Boons of District 12 and Hertford, Southampton. In fact, I have traded emails with a lady in Ga. that claims to be descended from this Benjamin Boon with the daughters. They also have a line in Tennessee. If I can find the info, I will give it to you. . Leta Myles Franklin
