A double log house, his home until 1816, and his parents until 1804. A descendant, Mrs. Richard C. Matson, wrote in a letter of 1924: <The double log house built at the stone fort near Darst's Bottom was taken down by A. S. Matson in 1854.> The fort, erected by DMB and DB, was described in this letter from William H. Matson in 1908: <Double log house, many of the logs faced two feet. Two-story stone chimney -- one story porch all along the main building, which faced the south with two windows in front. The premises were surrounded by a wooden fort built for protection in times of struggles with Indians.> According to Mrs. R. C. Matson: DMB <sold the farm to Abraham Shobe in 1819.> DB's land in Darst's Bottom he sold to William Coshow in 1815. Lilian Hays Oliver, SOME BOONE DESCENDANTS AND KINDRED OF THE ST.

Nathan and DB began constructing their house early in 1803. It was to be much like DB's boyhood home. According to tradition, DB carved the five walnut mantel pieces, including the elaborate sunburst design in the living room. The house was valued at $3000 on the 1819 St. Charles County tax list. Mrs. L. C. Winkler, in the BOONE BULLETIN (1934-39, 196) tells of her grandmother, Delinda Boone Craig's memory of the house: <I used to love to hear her tell of her father's home in St. Charles Conty, Mo. . . . There was a dance hall on the third floor, and the family had a happy time there. John Boone (son of Nathan) was a fine violinist and so it was really a family entertainment. Grandmother said they had waxed floors and all had white kid slippers. As she often remarked, she knew what it was to be rich and what it was to be poor.> Lilian Hays Oliver, SOME BOONE DESCENDANTS AND KINDRED OF THE ST. CHARLES DISTRICT (Burlington VT: Chedwato Service, 1964), 42.

<At that time [1813] there was but one Protestant cemetery north of the Missouri River. It was located on a knoll overlooking the valley of the Missouri. It was established there as early as 1803 by David Bryan. In the valley immediately under the hill lay the plantation of Flanders Callaway who had married Jemima Boone. And Grandfather and Grandmother Boone, as they were affectionately called, were visiting there at the time of the latter's death.> William S. Bryan quoted in Lilian Hays Oliver, SOME BOONE DESCENDANTS AND KINDRED OF THE ST. CHARLES DISTRICT (Burlington VT: Chedwato Service, 1964), 43.
