William POAGE at Boonesborough, 1775
Posted by: Wilene Smith Date: March 24, 1999 at 09:17:19
  of 472

According to Lyman Draper in his Life of Daniel Boone (Ted Franklin Belue, ed., Stackpole Books, 1998), William POAGE from Virginia arrived with his family at the Boonesborough settlement in September 1775. One of Draper's sources was "notes of conversations with Mrs. Elizabeth THOMAS . . . who was a daughter of William POAGE and was born in Rockbridge County, Virginia, September 4th, 1764, and died near Harrodsburg, Kentucky, October 8th, 1851, in her 88th year. Going to Kentucky when she was eleven years old, and having a retentive memory, she was a living chronicle of the events of that period." (page 397, note 32)

My question -- who was the Mr. THOMAS that Elizabeth married?

Also mentioned by Draper is a list of the "first born" in Kentucky, including "Ann, daughter of William POAGE at Harrodsburg, who became the wife of Gen. John POAGE, who commanded a regiment at the battle of the Thames." (page 426, note 2)

Can anyone help me identify Elizabeth's husband, Mr. THOMAS?
