      THE GENEALOGY OF THE BOONE FAMILY OF MARYLAND, REV EDWARD D. BOONE, S.J., 1904

      Among the officers of the Continental Army represented in the "Surrender of Cornwallis" [one of the four pictures in the Rotunda of the Capitol at Washington, painted by Trumbull during the years 1819-24] is the portrait of John Boone, of Henry, of John, [See Genealogical Sketch of the Boone family of Maryland] Lieutenant 3rd Regiment, Maryland Line, taken from life. The key to these pictures is not the work of Trumbull, but of some other party long years afterwards,and is by no means reliable.

      "After the reorganization of the Maryland Line [Aug. 1. 1779], John Boone
      Lieut. 3rd Reg., commissioned 12th April, 1781, under Peter Adams, Lieut. Col. commanding; wounded at Eutaw Springs, 8th September, 1781; served till April, 1783." [Heitman's Histor. Reg. of Officers in the Continental Army.]

      It would seem that John Boone had previously served in the State militia, from the very beginning of hostilities, as appears from the following: "Tuesday, 16th July, 1776, Council met. Ordered....That the Treasurer of the Western shore pay to Capt. John Boone forty-five shillins and eight pence for a Guard out of his company to watch the motions of the Fowey." [Journal and Correspondnce of the Committee of Safety, 1776]
