- Query, : Frontiersman. Born in Pennsylvania, the sixth of twelve children to Quaker parents, Squire Boone, a weaver and blacksmith and Sarah Jarman Morgan. As a boy, Boone received an elementary education. The Boone family left Pennsylvania around 1750 and eventually settled in North Carolina. In 1756 Boone married neighbor Rebecca Bryan. The couple would produce ten children. In 1769, he set out with five others to explore the border region of Kentucky territory. They passed Cumberland Gap and on June 7, and set up camp at Station Camp Ceek. They explored Kentucky as far west as the falls of the Ohio. In 1773 he returned home, sold his farm and set out with his family, two brothers, and five other families, to settle in Kentucky. They were intercepted by Shawnee in an attack that resulted in the death of Boone's oldest son, James. The party was forced to retreat to the Clinch River. Two years later, Boone succeeded in founding Boonesborough, Kentucky near present day Lexington. During the American Revolution Boonesborough became the site of several battles. It was besieged at least three times over a period of months. The Battle of Blue Licks on August 19, 1782, almost ten months after the surrender at Yorktown, was a decisive victory for a combined force of 1000 British regulars and tribes from the Ohio nations. It also cost the life of Boone's second son, Israel. After the war, in 1792, Kentucky was admitted into the Union as the 15th state. Litigation arose that questioned many settlers' title to their lands. Boone lost all his property due to lack of clear title. In 1795 he settled on the Femme Osage Creek, in St. Charles County, Missouri. He was appointed commander of the Femme Osage district, and received a large grant of land for his services, which he subsequently lost because he failed to make his title good. His claim to another tract of land was confirmed by Congress in 1812, in consideration of his services. Rebecca Boone died in 1813. The St. Louis Enquirer of October 14, 1820 ran an obituary notice that read: "DIED.- On the 26th ult. [Sep.] at Charette in the ninetieth year of his age, the celebrated Col. DANIEL BOONE, discoverer and first settler of the State of Kentucky."? In 1845 in a controversial move, the remains of Boone and his wife were relocated from Missouri to Kentucky. There is some controversy surrounding the final disposition of the Boones' remains. Some say Daniel and Rebecca's remains are still in Missouri, and that the wrong bodies were removed and re-buried. Others have demanded the return of the bodies to Missouri. (bio by: Iola)
- Query, : Daniel BOONE was born on 22 September 1734 in Exeter Twp., Berks, PA. He died on 26 September 1820 in Defiance, St.Charles, Missouri. He has reference number 462P-FV. He was buried in Frankfort, Franklin, KY.. Daniel fought in several battles and with alot of men, one was Pres. George Washington in the Braddock campaign, served with Jefferson in the Virginia House of Burgesses and led Abraham Lincoln's grandfather into Kentucky. Daniel left his trail-blazing marks in four regions that have become great states. Behind those great feats and adulation there was the private man who never had his story told.
Daniel hated coonskin caps, he never wore one. He died with out owning an acre of the precious land he
discovered. Daniel had bitter differances (His ancestors were all Quakers of Penn.) with Quaker brethren and led, Boone and his wife and daughter Westward.
Rebecca and daughter were the first white women in Kentucky where two of Daniel and Rebecca's eldest sons were killed by Indians. Boone's daughter Jemima was kidnapped by the Indians and Daniel rescued her, and then he was taken prisoner by the Shawnee war Chief and given a squaw as his new bride. But he outwitted his caputers, escaped and led the defense of Boonesbourgh in an epic battle. In fact, Boone did more than any man in America to settle and hold the state of Kentucky. Yet after the siege, Boone was hauled before a court- marshall and charged with treason. Boone was cleared of the charges, which was the handiwork of one embittered, paranoid enemy.
He was married to Rebecca BRYAN (daughter of Morgan BRYAN and Martha STRODE) on14 August 1756 in Yadkin, Rowan, North Carolina. Rebecca BRYAN was born on 9 January 1739 in Winchester, Virginia. She died on 18 March 1813 in Defiance, St.Charles, Missouri. She was buried in Definance, Mo. Later to Frankfort, Ky..
Daniel BOONE was 80 years old in 1814. He had followed his son, Daniel Morgan BOONE to Missouri in 1799, when it was under Spanish rule. After the Louisiana Purchase he lost his Spanish land titles and returned to Kentucky.
