In 1775 <she was the one woman who crossed the Cumberland Gap with her husband and father and thirty pioneers. This party pushed through the wilderness to the banks of the "Cantuckie" river, south of the hills of the "Ohigho," and established Boonesborough. Susannah Hays may not have been the first white woman to set foot on Kentucky soil but she undoubtedly was the first white mother to establish a home there.> ASBURY:536

<The remarkable chest development, lung and voice power of Daniel Boone, Boone Hays and his four sons, were distinguishing features of these men. They could speak and be plainly heard at the distance of a mile, and at one time when Boone Hays and his four boys had appointed a meeting place on the plains, and Linville (who by a day's dlelay had aroused anxiety as to his coming), approached at night, he was heard to shout for aid from across a creek at a distance that was accurately determined to be two and a half miles. And when Boone Hays called to his lagging jockey and horse in the heat of a race, what terror and spur did his voice not carry! His profanity was fluent, proficient and picturesque, combining all that was forceful, effective and blasphemous of the pasquinade and invective used by Spanish, French and English freebooters that swarmed the early West. And perhaps in less than a minute after rolling off these fullmouthed glittering yards of blue diamond blasphemy, he might be blinking and whimpering over some poor person's suffering or misfortune, or the ill that befell some favorite hound or slave.> ASBURY:540
