This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!


Will of Thomas Boon of NH Co NC signed 14 March 1796 – proved March Ct 1800
Item, my desire is that my son Nicholas Boon shall have the plantation where on he now lives and the use of one negro man Jim during his life and then return to his brothers, half-brothers and sisters that is living at that time to them and their heirs forever.
