The burial site, marked by a monument erected by descendants of the Russel family in 1959, is located about 10 miles northeast of the Cumberland Gap on the Hubert Wheeler farm, some "11 miles northeast of Virginia via Highway 684." [This is very confused, and I cannot find that highway on the official state map of VA]. The inscription of the monument: <This marks the burial place of a party of white settlers who were surprised in camp and slain by Indians at daybreak, October 10, 1773. Those killed were James Boone, son of Daniel Boone; Henry Russell, son of Captain William Russell; Robert and Richard Mendenhall, brothers; and another unnamed white man. Two escaped and Adam, a Negro slave of Russell. Boone and Russell buried the sons and others at the scene of the tragedy and gave up temporarily the first efforts of White men to settle Kentucky.> ANDRAE:8

This unidentified newspaper clipping dates from ca. 1921; from the files of Lillian Hays Oliver who got it from her mother Serena Castilo Hays, wife of Daniel Berry Hays, great-grandson of William and Susannah Boone Hays: <About two years ago there occurred in Mexico, Missouri, the death of John S[tewart] Jones, 91 years old, great grandson of Daniel Boone. A few years ago [1916] the Mexico Evening Leader published the following held at that time with Mr. Jones. <"It is very uncertain whether the body of Daniel Boone was ever removed from the old Bryan Cemetery at Marthasville, Warren County, Missouri, to Frankfort, Kentucky," said John S. Jones of this city. Mr. Jones who is 88 years old and has a very active mind spoke of incidents surrounding the burial place of Daniel Boone and his wife only as one can who is intimate with the circumstances and as one relating a family tradition. His father, Dr. John Jones, was Daniel Boone's physician during his declining years and was the source of much of the information concerning the pioneer. "'I believe these are Grandfather's and Grandmother's graves,' said Susan Bryan to John S. Wyatt who placed the marker over the spot 16 years after Boone died. A body was removed from the marked mound and placed in the Frankfort cemetery in 1845. But still doubters, and I am one of them, believe that Boone'd body was never taken to Frankfort. John S. Wyatt, a blacksmith and pioneer of St. Charles County and a man in whom I have the utmost confidence told me the day they removed my great-grandfather's body, 'They think they have Boone's body, but they don't know.' 'For 16 years his body had lain in the old Bryan Cemetery about a mile from Marthasville, unmarked,' said Mr. Wyatt. 'David Bryan sent for a stone mason from St. Charles to mark the grave. Watson, the stone mason, came up here on Saturday but forgot his chisel to carve the D.B. on the headstone. He came to me to get me to make it rather than make the extra trip to St. Charles. I suggested that I would make the chisel and do the work for him so that he could return home. Monday I want to Bryan to have him point out the grave. He was ill and sent his daughter Susan with me to the old burial ground. It had been the Bryan cemetery for years and many unmarked mounds were in the place. After deliberating for wome time Susan pointed to two graves, sise by side, and said, "I believe Grandfather and Grandmother are buried here." So I put up the stone.'" "This is Wyatt's story -- the man who should know and doesn't -- and I think it is good grounds for my belief that Daniel Boone is resting in the old Bryan burial place at Marthasville," said Mr. Jones in concluding.> quoted in ANDRAE:91-92

This letter from David Gardyne of Marthasville MO (near the original DB grave), to Jesse P. Crump of Kansas City MO (a Boone descendant and authority on Boone family history); as printed in an unidentified newspaper, possibly the St. Louis REPUBLIC or POST DISPATCH, ca. 1919; from the files of Lillian Hays Oliver who got it from her mother Serena Castilo Hays, wife of Daniel Berry Hays, great-grandson of William and Susannah Boone Hays: <Dear Sir: <Your letter of the 1st received. In answer I must say Mrs. Salisbury is correct, I believe, when she says, "There has always been a question as to whether or not Daniel Boone's body was removed. I think as Mrs. Salisbury does, that it is indeed questionable. I believe the Kentuckians blundered, and for this blunder the Missourians are chiefly responsible. I have lived from boyhood in this vicinity, and now nearing 76 [born ca 1843] years, have been an admirer of Daniel Boone, his services to his country, and his noble character. I have been listening to and tracing up every item connected with his life, and the traditions as handed down by both the white and colored races. . . . Jefferson Callaway (colored), formerly a slave of James Callaway, had purchased his freedom. He furnished the writer with many facts while he was nearing the century mark. He was very hightly honored and the most reliable man I ever knew. He was the only man I ever met who had seen Boone in Missouri. It was his son Alonzo who assisted at the removal of the remains. Alonzo had been sold to slavery in the South for some misdemeanor, finally returning to his father in Marthasville, where a few days preceeding his death with consumption, I visited him. Alonzo became quite enthused when we were talking. He raised up in bed on his elbow and laughingly said, "They didn't get Boone." Like many others he considered it a smart deception and justifiable. Dr. Sylvanus Griswold held the same opinion regarding Boone, the "lost grave," etc. He furnished me a pencil plat of the arrangement of Boone's grave. As I remember the plat it would make the grave of Boone at the feet of Rebecca -- east of her grave. I have now given you all the information I possess regarding Boone, every word written, from every source of information gained, is from from persons I know to be thoroughly reliable and trustworthy. <David Gardyne.> Note by Lillian Hays Oliver: <Mr. Griswold in 1845 [the year of the KY removal of the bodies] owned the David Bryan farm and cemetery. He was much, much opposed to allowing Kentucky to move the bodies . . . . He intended to preserve and beautify the little cemetery and erect a worth[y] monument at the graves.> quoted in ANDRAE:89-90

This unidentified newspaper clipping dates from ca. 1921; from the files of Lillian Hays Oliver who got it from her mother Serena Castilo Hays, wife of Daniel Berry Hays, great-grandson of William and Susannah Boone Hays: <The body of Daniel Boone still rests in Missouri, according to statements of Jesse P. Crump [another descendant of William and Susannah Hays and, according to Lillian Hays Oliver, a prominent Kansas City attorney and authority on Boone family history] in the Sunday Kansas City Post. Crump is a great-great-great grandson of Daniel Boone. He has just completed a biographical sketch of his honored ancestor, which is now in the hands of the publishers. The evidence given by Mr. Crump is very conclusive. It gives logically the facts that give the truth of his statement that the wrong casket was transferred to Frankfort, Kentucky, in 1845, when the body of Rebecca Boone and supposedly Daniel Boone were removed from Warren County, Missouri. There is no desire on the part of Missourians to set up a fictitious or double claim that the body of Daniel Boone has been retained in our state. Mr. Crump merely submits this evidence. <On September 26, 1820, exactly 101 years ago, Daniel Boone died. According to prearrangements he was to be buried beside his wife Rebecca. While digging his grave a human skull was found. The ground on the other side of his wife's grave was not suitable for a burial place. Therefore a spot at the head or the foot of Rebecca's grave was chosen and Daniel was buried there. Those sent from Kentucky in 1845 to remove the bones found Rebecca's coffin in a good state of preservation, but nothing was found in Daniel Boone's grave but the bones of a human skeleton. That there should be such a difference was quite unusual, since both coffins had been made of the wood of the wild cherry, and Rebecca had died seven years before her husband. Howevr, the bodies were taken to Kentucky and reburied and a monument was erected to their memory. The question arises, how came a marker to be erected to Daniel's grave if it was not his grave? It must be remembered that there was a lapse of 16 years before any marker was placed at his grave, which was pointed out by his granddaughter and about which she was not positive. This accounts for the misplaced marker. Mr. Crump has secured much data and information concerning the above facts and claims that if Boone's body is not still resting in Missouri soil, then we have all history and tradition that has come down to us at fault and out of joint.> [NB that the "we" and "us" in this last sentence is the Boone descendants: that in other words, it was a family tradition.] quoted in ANDRAE:87-88

BRYANFAM FAMILYLIFE MOBURIAL KYBURIAL TRADITIONS Statement of Lillian Hays Oliver, great-great-great grandauther of Daniel Boone and great-great graddaughter of David Bryan, in whose family cemetery Daniel and Rebecca Bryan Boone were buried: <David Bryan, his two brothers, and three sisters were the children of James Bryan, the favotie uncle of Rebecca Bryan Boone. When Rebecca Enox Bryan [the wife of James Bryan] died, Daniel and Rebecca Boone took her six children into their home and reared them as their own children. The three girls were married at the Boone home in Kentucky, but the three boys and their father, James Bryan, followed Daniel Boone to Missouri. It was David Bryan, not a Boone, who had the marker made for the grave of Daniel Boone. As he was ill the day the marker was to be placed, he sent his daughter Susannah with the stone mason to the David Bryan Cemetery near his home. After hesitating for a little while, Susannah pointed out what she thought were the graves of "Grandfather" and "Grandmother." It was natural for Susannah to refer to Daniel and Rebecca as grandparents since they had reared her father who "almost idolized them."> [Don't know where this last quote comes from.] quoted in ANDRAE:88

The Daniel Boone House: was it DB's or Nathan's? 2: <Daniel soon learned that a Grant for this location had been previously been [sic] issued to a John Hall who lived in St. Charles, a small village about 25 miles away. John Hall had not built or improved any on this Grant. An agreement was made with John Hall to buy the property (approximately 800 arpents). Nathan traded a horse, saddle and bridal as a part-payment on the land Grant. However, since the spot was already sold to Hall, the changing of the title had to be made in New Orleans, the seat of the Spanish government. Daniel Boone was now 68 years old [makes this 1802] and didn't want to make the long trip to New Orleans. He sent Nathan to do the undertaking. When Nathan arrived in New Orleans, the Spanish authorities wouldn't allow Nathan to sign his father's name to the transfer of title, so Nathan did the only thing he could do -- he signed the papers in his own name. "What difference did it make as long as it was in the name of Boone." Nathan was to have the property when Daniel and Rebecca passed on. It made no difference to either one as long as it was theirs. Daniel Boone paid all the back taxes and taxes thereon, and Daniel Boone's money built the home. In Kentucky Daniel had seen to it that all his children had land, even Daniel Morgan was given land in Kentucky before he came to Missouri. . . . When the U.S. made the Louisiana Purchase from France, the land that Daniel and Nathan occupied belonged to no one. The Boone's only had possession, and it remained that way many years. The transfer was confirmed in 1814 [?]. ANDRAE:78-81

The Daniel Boone House: was it DB's or Nathan's? 1: <Daniel wanted to locate his home near a spring of good water. Spring water was the main source of household and stock water. Daniel found the right spring and near it stood a large elm tree. . . . This was the spot to build his home. Nathan, who was married when the Boones left Kentucky, also needed a home and both agreed to live together. Nathan was just 19, had a wife and first born. It was in the year of 1800, less than a year after his arrival that Daniel built his first small log cabin near the spring. This would furnish him shelter while he and Nathan built a larger house for both families. They also agreed to build a larger stone house for their future home, similar to the Boone Home in Pennsylvania and the Boone Home in England, which was a tradition of the Boones. Daniel and his wife, Rebecca, were to occupy one-half of the main floor and Nathan and his family would occupy the 3rd floor, or the floor above. The main kitchen and dining room would be in the bottom floor and entered from the ground level which was, at that time, the front of the home.> continued ANDRAE:78-81

Massacre of the Ramsey Family. Lived at the extreme limits of the Femme Osage settlement. Ramsey had been advised to move further to the center, but ignored the advice. 5/20/1815 attacked by Indians. He and wife both wounded, but he managed to grab his trumpet and give it a blast what frightened the Indians away. They had tomahawked three children in the yard, and scalped one. Mrs. Ramsey died the next day; Mr. Ramsey recovered. DB doctored the injured, removing the bullet from Mr. Ramsey. Next morning Indians attacked the Jonathan Bryan residence, 15 miles from the Ramseys. Mrs. Bryan and a negro woman alone with two children, the men away at the scene of the earlier attack. The women heard a scream from the yard and looked out to see an Indian running after a black boy with a raised tomahawk and a rifle in the other hand. Just as the Indian reached the door they slammed the door on his right arm and head and held him fast; the black woman wrenched the tomahawk from his hand and struck him on the head, killing him instantly. Another scream from the yard, and they looked out to see the boy being chased by another Indian. Mrs. Bryan grabbed the gun of the first Indian and killed the second a few feet from the door. The two Indians were buried on a rocky hill near the home, a large rock placed over their graves so they could not be detected by other Indians, and this rock was a prominent marker on the property for many years.

Story of W. S. Bryan: James Davis, a frequent hunting companion of DB, hunting alone in Boone's Lick area ca. winter of 1813. Captured by a band of Otoes who took everything he had, and let him go, with an old loaded musket, no other amunition, bare naked. Traveled through the snow barefooted and naked; reached a bear cave known to him, successfully killed the bear with his single shot; skinned it with the flint lock from the gun; slept in the whole skin. Travelled the 100 miles to Femme Osage in the skin; reached the Jonathan Bryan home (near DB home) in eight days. Night, bright moon when he knocked on the door of the Bryan house; door opened by a boarding Scotch school master who thought Davis was an evil spirit; ran back into the house yelling that the devil was at the door.

Career: As early as 1808 Nathan headed a company of rangers. Offered their services to General William Clark to help in the erection of Fort Osage. Clark sent him as an interpreter among the Osage, to attempt to induce them to come to the fort for protection from the northern tribes, and to get supplies. In 1812 he was captain of a company of rangers; in 1813 a major. The Indians of the St. Charles district did not rise up in 1812, but small roving bands attacked small groups of settlers. St. Charles county had more forts than any other area of the territory: Boone's Fort (on DMB's land) was the strongest, but alwo Howell's Fort on Howell's Prairie, Fort Zumwalt near O'Fallon, White's Fort on Dog Prairie near Old Monroe, Coontz Fort near Cottleville, Pond's Fort on Dardene Prairie, and Castilo Fort on Dardenne Creek. After congress authorized the organization of three MO companies, Nathan, DMB, and David Musick headed them. They patrolled a triangular area from the Salt River-Hannibal, to the Loutre-Mineola, and back to St. Charles. They also built forts. In 12816-17 Nathan and DMB surveyed the Boone's Lick trail and laid out the Boone's Lick Road; it later formed the route for US40. 1820 Nathan was one of 3 delegates from St. Charles county to the state constitutional convention; in 1821 chosen as one of the 41 delegates to frame the constitution. 1830s surveyed parts of Iowa as US deputy surveyor; established Fort Des Moines; town and county of Boone IA named for him. Saw action in the Black Hawk war as captain of a mounted company of 100 volunteer St. Charles rangers. 1834-53 Nathan was in the regular US army, first as a Captain of a regiment of dragoons, then as major, finally as Lt. Col. Saw action in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, and Missoui. Assisted in the capture of Santa Fe; served as military governor of New Mexico and western Texas. Retired in 1853 and died in 1856. His home in Ash Grove, Green county MO was a simple four room log cabin. Was buried in the family cemetery in a field not far from the house. ANDRAE:63-71

Nathan Boone was forced to sell the stone house and his 680 acres to pay the debt of a county official for whom he was bondsman in 1837; the official had obsconded with a large sum of county money. He left the area and resettled in southwestern MO. The house served as a residence for a long series of owners, some unaware of its history. Numerous organizations were formed in an effort to acquire the house, all ending in faiulre. In 1925 Col. Francis Marion Curlee, a St. Louis businessman, purchased the house and three acres surrounding, planning to restore it and use it as a residence. Gradually he acquired 509 acres and furnished the house with period and Boone family pieces. When Curlee decided to sell, he "cooperated by declining a number of firm offers from private interests," but MO state officials could not come up with the money to convert the property into a state partk. <Roadways, bridges, regions, scout districts, commercial trading stamps and shopping areas, even taverns throughout the Daniel Boone area of Missouri were named in honor of the pioneer, but the one property of most interest to citizens and tourists in every corner of the country remained closed to the public, in danger of being sold under the auctioneer's hammer.> 1956 Daniel Boone Shrine Association formed as part of a program to purchase the stone house and surrounding 509 acres. Curlee estate permitted the Association to display the home until 1964, when it was sold. <The new owners have been committed to the preservation and public enjoyment of the historic site as envisaged by the members of the Daniel Boone Shrine Association. Extensive improvements have been and are continuing to be made, with as little deviation from the style of Daniel's lifetime as possible.> <Though historians concede that the house where Boone died is the most valuable remaining relic of his life, they had not shown the public the way to accomplish its preservation. It is indeed fortunate that private individuals accepted the challenge and were willing to assure the preservation of this historic gem.> ANDRAE:52-54,57,70

Headstones were not erected on the DB and Rebecca graves on Teuque Creek until ca. 1836. David Bryan hired a St. Charles blacksmith to do the job. Bryan was sick the day he arrived, and he sent his daughter Susie to the cemetery to point out the graves. She indicated two mounds side by side, and there the markers were placed. When the graves were opened, Rebecca's coffin was in tack, but Daniel's, though buried in the same cherry wood, and seven years later, was disintegrated. <Nissouri descendants of Boone use that circumstance to support their contention that Boone's body was missed that day and still lies sleeping in the Femme Osage. The belief is embellished by the files of old newspapers which recount that Susie Bryan should have pointed to the foot of Rebecca's grave, instead of to its side when she indicated where the marker for Daniel's grave should be placed. The story was that when the original grave for Daniel Boone was dug at the side of Rebecca, the skeleton of a stranger was unearthed. The grave was refilled and, because the ground on the opposite side of her grave was unsuitable for sepulchral purposes owing to the hillside, a new site was chosen at the foot of Rebecca's grave. This version was confirmed by Alonzo Callaway, a former slave, the newspapers relate. He was one of those who assisted at the disinterment and is credited with having concealed from the Kentuckians the true location of the grave, allowing them to dig up the skeleton of the stranger at her side. . . . Be that as it may, Kentucky's ardor soon died after the pomp and ceremony that accompanied the reburial of the two bodies at Frankfort. Neglect also followed in the wake of the removal of the bodies from Missouri. The graves remained open as the Kentucky delegation had left them and the headstones lay where they had been tossed.> In 1915 some 2000 people gathered at the cemetery to dedicate a monument erected by the DAR and the citizens of Warren county.

He was rejected for formal service, but <the settlers of the region, however, did not reject his services, for his very presence always lent fortitude and courage to those families attacked by the Indians. He was present in March, 1815, when the body of his grandson, Captain James Calalway, was recovered from Loutre River after he and his men had been ambushed on their return to Fort Clemson on Loutre Island with the horses that had been stolen by the Sax and Fox Indians. In May of the same year he was called early in the morning from Callaway Fort at Charette to the home of Robert Ramsay after the massacre there. His long experience with wounds inflicted by Indian arrows and tomahawks made him efficient in dressing such wounds. He could not save the life of Mrs. Ramsay and the child born permaturely that day nor two of the children who had been tomahawked, but he did extract, with the utmost calm and skill of any surgeon of today, the bullet from Mr. Ramsay who had run without his wooden leg to the assistance of his wife who was milking in a nearby cowpen. With his usual quietness and calmness and with lips tightly compressed, the old pioneer aided the injured and dying. He was as gentle as a mother with the little child who lived for four days after having been tomahawked.> ANDRAE:43-44

DB <had learned from his Kentucky experiences. Now he had the letter in which the Spanish officials had promised him the land grant. The grant had been duly made. The survey had been made and the certificate of survey issued January 9, 1800. This time there were no "shingled" land claims. Daniel Boone was the only claimant [sic -- this land actually owned by Nathan Boone]. He could present all these papers to the Board of Land Commissioners. And this time he had powerful friends working for him, the most devoted being Judge John Coburn of Kentucky, formerly a land commissioner himself.> ANDRAE:43

On the site of the DB home, the first log house, which served as a temporary shelter, was a large two-room dogtrot with a large loft. It stood until the early 1900s, when it was torn down. <When makeing plans for the permanent rock house, Nathan, of course, relied upon his father. Construction was started in 1803, and a year later, Daniel and Rebecca moved from Daniel Morgan's home to this location, in order to assist in and supervise the construction. <This move also enabled Nathan to make a living for his family by hunting, trapping and surveying the nearby area, as well as far from home. It is said Daniel could sit in the doorway of his cabin and kill any kind of game that came to the spring to drink. The west end of the log house was just 50 feet east of the spring, and about 20 feet west of the present stone mansion.> Describes it as "Georgian-style." Built of native blue limestone. <Since Daniel supervised the construction, it is not strange that it resembles in many ways his birthplace and boyhood home [sic] in Berks County, Pennsylvania, and the homes of his Boone ancestors in Bradnick, Exeter, Devonshire, England. The two-and-a-half foot thick walls and the six port holes in the north wall of the fortress-l;ike structure indicate plainly that is was [sic] built to protect its occupants, living on the very fringe of civilization. So strongly was it built that it even survived the 1811 New Madrid earthquake which moved the house about four inches on its solid rock foundation.> [SOURCE?] ANDRAE:38-39

<The permanent home, built of stone, was to resemble the Boone home in Devonshire, England, and Boone's birthplace in Pennsylvania. . . . In this beautiful rock amnsion can be found many of Daniel Boone's artifacts. The interior woodwork is all made of walnut lumber, of which Daniel did the hand carving. On the main floor, where Daniel and Rebecca live[d], can be seen his famous walnut cupboard that he made from a large walnut tree. That tree had to be cut down to build the hom. Also in this small kitchen can be seen the small Boone family rocking chair that had been used in Kentucky and handed down to his granddaughter, Delinda Hays. In the bedroom in which Daniel died, can be seen Mrs. Boone's sewing basket and their son's (Jesse Boone) spinning wheel. Also, in the room, are two pictures of Daniel Boone: one a painting of Daniel Boone from the original Chester Harding painting and also the only picture of Rebecca in the nation, which is an enlargement of a charcoal picture which was found in an old book on the fireplace mantle in this bedroom. . . . In Rebecca's kitchen can be seen the cupboard made from a walnut tree. A German cabinet maker made the cupboard which has a secret, 2-drawer, compartment for hiding valuables. In those days there were no banks or lock boxes. In the bedrooms above the kitchen, is a desk that was brought by wagon train from Kentucky and used by the Boone's. On Nathan's bed is a bedspread 170 years old, the flax used to make the spread was grown by Daniel Boone and spun and woven by Delinda Hays, granddaughter of Daniel. The entire house is filled with authentic pieces and documents of Daniel Boone. Almost everything, including the furniture, belonged to Daniel and Rebecca or Boone descendants. No historical home of that period can surpass the Boone Home for autenticity of artifacts and belongings. It is a historical home of its own class and distinction, built of rock and walnut. It was the finest house west of the Mississippi when it was completed.> [SOURCE?] ANDRAE:37-38

Andrae claims that DB discovered the site for the Nathan Boone homestead; picked it because of the good spring and the beautiful large elm on the side of a hill. <Daniel was determined that this beautiful Missouri location would become home for him and Rebecca, as well as Nathan. Nathan, now with a wife and his first-born son [James Boone, born 1800] to support, was so desirious of becoming a land owner that he traded his last horse, saddle and bridle as part-payment to Robert Hall on Land Grant No. 1794. This grant consisted of 680.50 acres at the location his father, Daniel, had discovered. Daniel helped nathan financially -- he paid all Nathan's taxes. Since Nathan's grant was to be a part of Daniel's additional 10,000 arpents granted to him by the Spanish (850 acres know as Spanish Land Grant No. 1646 [which adjoined DMB's land on the east side]) [clearly some confusion here, 850 acres = approx. 1000, not 10,000 arpents], Daniel sent Nathan to New Orleans to get the necessary papers signed. Nearing 70 years old, Daniel did not want to make the long trip. However, when Nathan got to New Orleans, the Spanish authorities would not let Nathan sign his father's name to the papers. Nathan, frustrated, decided to sign his own name. (This transaction was not confirmed until 1814.) Daniel built a small log cabin near the spring to live in while he held court, as the location centered near the additional land of 10,000 arpents which had been promised him by the Spanish Governor, if he would bring in additional families from the Kentucky area. This would be adequate shelter while a home was built. A family agreement had been reached to build a permanent home in which Daniel and Rebecca, as well as Nathan and family, would live the rest of their lives.> [SOURCE?] ANDRAE:35-36

<Eighteen-year old Nathan was torn between two loves; his love for adventure and his love for his sweetheart, Olive Van Bibber, whom he was leaving behind [in Kanawah]. At Limestone he decided he was going to have both the adventure and the girl. Years later, Olive Van Biber Boone told to her daughter-in-law, Mary Wardlaw Boone, the story of their trip to Upper Louisiana. She said she and Nathan were married September 26, and left on October 1st for Missouri. They had two ponies, a pack pony, an axe, a gun, some blankets, and clothing. They lived mainly on the game Nathan killed, which they cooked over the camp fire. [They slept in the blankets beside the fire.] After they had traveled for some time they were overtaken by a couple who accompanied them as far as Vincennes where she and Nathan were delayed for three weeks because of a crippled pony. From Vincennes to St. Louis they traveled alone, reaching St. Louis the last week in October. There Nathan was offered eighty acres of land in exchange for the three ponies, but Olive said Nathan would not have given one pony for forty acres there. They crossed the Missouri River near St. Louis by placing their goods in a skiff. nathan rowed and she steered and left the bridles of the horses. Olive concluded her story by saying it was a perilous trip for so young a couple. Nathan was eighteen and she was sixteen.> ANDRAE:33-34, bracketed sentence from 64;

As part of his work while in captivity DB <repaired their rifles. . . . But Boone was repairing their rifles not for good purposes. He knew that they were to be used against the settlers and especially the settlers of Boonesborough. Although Daniel made good repairs on the rifles they were using, he was not about to properly repair a large stock of rifles which were to be used in a mass attack on Boonesborough by the many recruits they were to muster. Instead of repairing them, he was filing two slots on the triggers of each gun where it couldn't be seen. He would take the triggers out and file the slots deep enough that they would break off after a shot or two. Daniel was certain they would break off because he knew Indians always pulled hard on their triggers when they shot. Daniel also knew the reason Indians couldn't shoot guns well was because they always pulled back hard on the trigger, pulling the gun to one side and off the target!" [SOURCE?

<A story has been handed down about this period in Daniel's life. It suggests that it may have been possible that he meant to kill himself. He had lost his first two sons, James and Israel; a brother-in-law James [John] Stewart had been killed; his brother, Edward, mutilated by Indians; he, himself, as well as his daughter, Jemima, captured by Indians numerous times, and now, he had lost most of his land by virtue of "vague" titles. The story goes that Daniel, depressed, walked into the woods with his gun and sat down on a log. He sat there for a long time, his face buried in his hands and his elbows on his knees. Tears ran from his eyes. Then, finally composed, he stood up and looked into the sky and asked his Heavenly Father, the one he had always placed his trust in, to help. Then Daniel picked up his gun and walked back to the house. Daniel never gave up, but he decided to leave Kentucky for good. He said he would never return.> [SOURCE?] ANDRAE:30

Nathan told LCD that he and DMB discovered the lick in Howard county MO, and the springs were named for them. The first year they worked at the springs with one furnace, 40 kettles, 6-8 men, manufacturing about 25-30 bushels of salt per week. The next year they enlarged the furnace, built a second one, and with 60 kettles on each, and 18-20 men, they made about 100 bushels per week. If careful not to let the kettles boil over, they could get a bushel of salt from 250 gallons of mineral water. Every two weeks keel boats came from St. Louis with supplies and took the salt back; it brought $2-2.50 per bushel. They sold it in 1811. ANDRAE:65
