Melinda, if it’s true that the Goshen church minutes list Squire Boone, brother of Daniel, as moderator, then that would be the same Squire Boone that is mentioned in Sutherland’s history of the Washington District. Castle’s Woods on the Clinch was the westernmost settlement before Kentucky was settled, so Daniel and Squire spent a good bit of time there, stopping off during their early trips into Kentucky. This was in the 1773-1775 time frame. On returning from a trip in 1774, Daniel was placed in charge of protecting the Clinch citizens while Capt. Russell and the militia went off to the Ohio in Dunmore’s War. The Boone family lived at Moore’s Fort below Castle’s Woods about a year as I recall, waiting for the Indian trouble to subside. Sutherland’s history did not state that Squire formed a church on the Clinch, but speculated that he was the earliest Baptist preacher in the area, so he may have established a church. (Note that he preceded our Stephen Wheeler on the Clinch by about 40 years). Your Clarke County does seem a bit far from where the Boones settled, but sometimes the early preachers were wide-ranging. Will Elder Reed let you look at the minutes? I don’t know how reliable the Wikipedia entry on Squire is, but it says that after he re-established in Harrison Co, IN, (about 1804) that he built the Old Goshen church there. Maybe he liked the name. Max
