Harriet Boone: Thomas Ewing, going down the Kanawha opn a keel boat, met among the passengers the family of Jesse Bryan Boone, including Harriot. She was, he remembered, a handsome, educated young lady who made the tedious journey pleasant; they talked of books and poetry. He left the boat at Point Pleasant while the Boones continued their journey down the Ohio. Jesse was salt inspector of the Kanawha Salt Works, and he was possibly returning from an inspection. Quote: "He had with him a daughter -- Harriet -- a handsome, educated young lady, who somehow got the impression that I was a scholar and enticed me on the voyage to read novels and recite poetry with her. She was engaged in reading the Wild Irish Girl [by Lady Morgan], an extravagant specimen of unrestrained imagination, with which she was quite enchanted. Without sharing in her enthusiasm, her attention and courtesy pleased me and she made the otherwise monotonous voyage pleasant." "The Autobiography of Thomas Ewing," edited by Clement L. Martzolff, OHIO ARCHAEOLOGICAL AND HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 22 (1913):155.
