This interesting letter from DB's nephew, Daniel Boone, possibly the son of Squire Boone, to Col. Manuel Antonio Cordero y Bustamante, the new Spanish governor of Texas: <Atascocito, June 11, 1806 <Sir, <Daniel Boone, a native of Carolina, a citizen of Opelousas for 12 years, and at present, in this post, makes known to you with the greatest respect, and I have come to this place with my family and goods because those lands have passed into the possession of the Anglo-Americans and it does not suit me to live under their laws. I came to seek your protection in order that if you consider it well, you may order set apart for me a town lot and lands for farming -- since this is my occupation. <Danl. Boone> This Boone had gone to Lower Louisiana at Opelousas in 1794. Cordero decided to admit him to Texas, offering him a grant at San Antonio. This DB moved his family there, where he became a gunsmith for the soldiers of the presidio. According to family tradition he was killed by Indians in 1817. Quoted in HOUSTON POST, TEXAS MAZAZINE, 2/26/1967, clipping in Boone biographical file, Kentucky Historical Society.
