I am trying to clarify the date when John Wilcockson died, where he died, and where he is buried. John Wilcockson was the husband of Sarah Boone Wilcockson, a sister of Daniel Boone. There seems to be a conflict of information surrounding his death.
More than one on-line source states John was killed by an Indian on 2/3/1782 at Bryan's Station. I first wondered if he may have been killed in the 1782 siege of the station but the time he is supposed to have died is about six months before that. I also can't find John's name on the list of people present at the time of the siege.
I have found other sources that state John died 2/26/1798 in Rowan Co NC. He may have been buried there or in the Joppa Cemetery in Mocksville NC. More than one source states Sarah was buried in this cemetery in 1815.
John and Sarah are my maternal 5th great grandparents. Any information on John Wilcockson would be greatly appreciated.
