Bryan-Rose: Robert Rose was responsible for the idea of the book. He had a habit of riding about the MO countryside, quizzing old timers about their early days in MO, taking notes on scraps of paper and stuffing them into his saddle-bags. In the collaboration with Bryan, the latter formed this material into a book. Elang says the book should really be titled "Some American Pioneer Families of Missouri," for other ethnic groups, notably the French and the Germans, are ignored here. W.W.Elang in BRYAN1:vii,xi.

William S. Bryan said to LCD that this story came from his father Elijah Bryan: <His school days came to a sudden and rather violent end. The teacher, a dissipated Irishman, kept his bottle of whisky hid in a thicket near the school house, and visited it frequently during the day for refreshment and consolation. The boys noticed that after these visits he was always crosser and used the rod more freely than at other times, but they did not suspect the cause. One day, young Boone, while chasing a squirrel, came accidentally upon the teacher's bottle, and at the first opportunity informed his playmates of his discovery. They decided, upon consultation, to mix an emetic with the kiquor, and await the result. The emetic was procured that night, and promptly placed in the bottle next morning. A short time after school opened, the teacher retired for a few minutes, and whenhe came back he was very sick and very much out of humor. Daniel Boone was called up to recite his lesson in arithmetic, and upon his making a slight mistake, the teacher began to flog him. The boy, smarting with pain, made known the secret of the whisky bottle, which so enraged the school master that he laid on harder and faster than ever. Young Boone, being stout and athletic for his age, grappled with the teacher; the children shouted and roared, and the scuffle continued until Boone knocked his antagonist down on the floor, and fled out of the room. Of course the story spread rapidly over the neighborhood, and the teacher was dismissed in disgrace. Daniel was rebuked by his parents; and so ended his school days.> BRYAN1:4-5

William S. Bryan said to LCD that this story came from his father Elijah Bryan: In the Yadkin DB often accompanied on his hunts by the sons of William [sic, should be Joseph?] Bryan, "a well-to-do farmer" who lived near the Boones. <Their association and mutual love of hunting soon begot a strong friendship, which lasted through life; and, being strengthened and cemented by intermarriage and continued association, was transmitted through their children to future generations, and the two families are still closely allied by ties of blood and friendship. But it was not farmer Bryan's sons, alone, that drew Daniel Boone so often to the house. There were other attractions there in the bright eyes of a daughter named Rebecca, and it soon became whispered about the Daniel was courting her. These whisperings were at length confirmed by the announcement of the approaching weddinng, which came off in due time, and was celebrated in the most approved style of the times. Rebecca Bryan was a very attractive, if not really a handsome young woman, and the love which she inspired in the breast of young Boone never cooled or abated during their long and eventful married life. Each was devoted to the other, and the dangers and hardships through which they passed cemented their love and drew them more closely together. She was in every respect a fit companion and helpmeet for the daring pioneer.> BRYAN1:6

William S. Bryan said to LCD that this story came from his father Elijah Bryan: <Mr. Peck says the charges were preferred by Col. Richard Callaway. . . . This is a mistake, as we learn from old pioneers still living, who were well acquainted with both Boone and Callaway, and who often heard them relate the history of those stirring times. [But Callaway died in 1780.] The strongest friendship and utpmst confidence always existed between Boone and Callaway, and their families after them; and neither Callaway, or any of Boone's friends, ever thought there was the least shadow of an excuse for the trumped up charges that were made against him.> BRYAN1:28

William S. Bryan said to LCD that this story came from his father Elijah Bryan: DMB built a house on 1000 arpents granted to DB. <This entire tract, with the exception of 181 acres, was sold by Daniel M. Boone, who had charge of his father's business, to pay the old Colonel's debts in Kentucky, of which he had left quite a number upon his removal to the Spanish dominions, and although his creditors never would have made any demands upon him, yet he could not rest easy until they were paid. All his earnings, which he derived from peltries obtained in his hunting excursions, were carefully saved, and at length having made a successful hunt and obtained a valuagle supply of peltry, he turned it all into cash, and visited Kentucky for the purpose of paying his debts. He had kept no book accounts, and knew not how much he owed, nor to whom he was indebted, but, in the honest simplicity of his nature, he went to all with whom he had had dealings, and paid whatever was demanded. When he returned to his family he had half a dollar left. "But," said he to his family and a circle of friends who had called to see him, "now I am ready and willing to die. I have paid all my debts, and nobody can say, when I am gone, 'Boone was a dishonest man.'"> BRYAN1:47

William S. Bryan said to LCD that this story came from his father Elijah Bryan: <On another occasion he took pack-horses and went to the country on the Osage river, accompanied by his negro boy. Soon after he had prepared his camp he was taken sick, and lay for a long time in a dangerous condition. The weather was stormy and disagreeable, which had a depressing effect both upon the old Colonel and his servant boy. Finally the weather cleared up, and there came a pleasant and delightful day. Boone felt that it would do him good to walk out, and, with the assistance of his staff and the boy, he made his way to the summit of a small eminence. Here he marked out the ground in the shape and size of a grave, and told the boy that in case he should die he wanted to be buried there, at the same time giving full instructions as to the manner of his burial. He directed the boy, in case of his death, to wash and lay his body straight, wrapped in one of the cleanest blankets. He was then to construct a kind of shovel, and with that instrument and the hatchet, to dig a grave, exactly as he had marked out. Then he was to drag the body to the spot and push it in the grave, after which he was to cover it, placing posts at the head and foot. Poles were to be placed around and over the surface, to prevent the grave from being opened by wild beasts; the trees were to be marked, so the place could be found by his friends, and then the boy was to get the horses, pack up the skins, guns, camp utensils, etc., and return home, where he was to deliver certain messages to the family. All these instructions were given with entire calmness, as if he were directing his ordinary business affairs.> BRYAN1:50-51

William S. Bryan said to LCD that this story came from his father Elijah Bryan: <The graves were situated on land belonging to Mr. Harvey Griswold, who at first objected to the removal, as he intended to build a monument over them, and beautify the place. Mr. Griswold was supported in his objections by a number of influential citizens, who claimed that Missouri had as much right to the remains of Daniel Boone as Kentucky, especially as the old pioneer had selected the location of his grave, and had given such instructions in regard to being buried there. The gentlemen from Kentucky finally carried their point, however, and on the 17th of July, 1845, the remains of Daniel Boone and his wife were removed from their graves. The work was done by King Bryan, Henry Angbert and Jeff Callaway, colored. Mrs. Boone's coffin was found to be perfectly sound, and the workmen had but little difficulty in removing it; but Colonel Boone's coffin was entirely decayed, and the remains had to be picked out of the dirt by which they were surrounded. One or two of the smaller bones were found afterward, and kept by Mr. Griswold as relics. . . . The graves on the hill near Teuque creek were never refilled, but remain to-day as they were left by the workmen, except that the rains have partly filled them with dirt, and they are overgrown with weeds and briars. Rough head stones had been carved by Mr. Jonathan Bryan, and placed at the heads of the graves. These were thrown back on the ground, and are still lying there. Recently, pieces of these stones have been chipped off and sent to Kentucky as mementoes.> BRYAN1:54

William S.

The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. James Craig, a son-in-law of Major Nathan Boone; and the house being too small to accommodate the immense concourse of people, the coffin was carried to the large barn near the house, into which the people crowded to listen to the funeral services. At their close the coffin was borne to the cemetery and sadly deposited in the grave that had been prepared for it, close by the side of Mrs. Boone.> BRYAN1:53

William S. Bryan said to LCD that this story came from his father Elijah Bryan: <One winter he went on a hunting and trapping excursion up the Grand river, a stream that rises in the southern part of Iowa and empties into the Missouri river between Carroll and Ray counties. He was alone this time. He paddled his canoe up the Missouri and then up the Grand river, until he found a retured place for his camp in a cave among the bluffs. He then proceeded to make the necessary preparations for trapping beaver, after which he laid in his winter's supply of venison, turkey, and bear's meat. Each morning he visited his traps to secure his prey, returning to his camp in such a manner as to avoid discovery by any prowling bands of Indians that might be in the vicinity. But one morning he had the mortification to discover a large encampment of Indians near his traps, engaged in hunting. He retreated to his camp and remained there all day, and fortunately that night a deep snow fell and securely covered his traps. He continued in his camp for twenty days, until the Indians departed: and during the time he had no fire except in the middle of the night, when he cooked his food. He was afraid to kindle a fire at any other time, lest the smoke or light should discover his hiding place to the savages. When the snow melted away, the Indians departed, and left him to himself.> BRYAN1:50

James Van Bibber, Olive Van Bibber Boone's brother, settled in St. Charles county MO in 1803; was coroner at time of William Hays' death. Isaac Van Bibber, cousin of James and Olive (their respective fathers were brothers, emigrants from Holland) was born 10/10/1771; his father was killed in the Battle of Point Pleasant and he was adopted and raised by DB; he married Susan Hays [daughter SUSANNAHB ?]; came to MO with Nathan Boone in 1800, settled in Darst's Bottom; 1815 purchased 460 acres from Nathan at Loutre Lick, where he built a large house used as a tavern and hotel, from which he made a great deal of money. According to Bryan, Isaac believed in the transmigration of souls. At his hotel one night he talked about his beliefs to a group of Kentucky travelers: <They listened attentively, and seemed interested; and after they had retired to bed he told his wife that he believed he had converted those men. . . . Next morning, when the men were ready to start, one of them said to Mr. Van Bibber: "We were very much impressed with your argument last night, and believing that there may be some truth in your doctrine, and being short of cash just now, we have decided to wait until we come around again at the end of six thousand years, to settle our bills." The old Major saw the point at one, and was considerably nonplused as to how he would get over it without losing the value of their night's lodging or exhibiting a practical unbelief in his own doctrine. But a happy thought struck him. "No," said he, "you are the same damned rascals who were here six thousand years ago, and went away without paying your bills, and now you have got to pay before you leave." They laughed, paid their bills and took their departure; but the old Major was never again heard to brag about his converting powers.> BRYAN2:297, 509

Susannah and William Hays' son Boone Hays married his cousin, Lydia Scholl and settled in Darst's Bottom in 1801. <When Mr. Hays raised his first cabin in Callaway county, he lacked a few logs of having enough to finish it, and went into the woods to cut some more. One of these trees in falling slipped and broke his leg, and the severe pain caused him to faint. As he was reeling and about to fall, John P. Martin, who was standing near, caught him in his arms, when he too fainted, and they both fell to the ground together. A man standing near them, but who knew nothing of Hays' let being broken, called out, "Hallo there! are you two drunk again?" Hays had his broken leg splinted and bound up, and then sat on a stump and gave directions about the completion of his cabin as if nothing had occurred. He was a man of iron nerve and robust constitution.> BRYAN2:343

Jonathan Bryan's water mill was situated on a small spring branch that emptied into Femme Osage creek. It would grind from six to ten bushels of grain in 24 hours and supplied the settlements from St. Charles to Loutre Island with meal and flour. Bryan would fill the hopper with grain in the morning and the mill would grind on that until noon, when the hopper would again be filled. The meal ran into a large pweter basin which sat on the floor at the bottom of the stones. Nathan's stone housr about a mile from the mill. DB <had an old dog named Cuff that used to go to the mill in Mr. Bryan's absence and lick the meal out of the basin as fast as it ran from the spout. When it did not run fast enough to suit him he would sti down and howl and bark, and one day Mr. Bryan heard him and hastened to the mill to see what was the matter. He soon discovered where his meal had been boing, and after than he exchanged the pewter basin for a tin coffee pot, whihc was too small at the top for Cuff to get his head into it. But he made the attempt one day, and got the coffee pot fast on his head and ran away with it.> Subsequently he built a larger mill. BRYAN2:525

<The report that a large body of Indians had crossed the river very naturally created great excitement and alarm, and the people of the border settlements, acting upon the advice of the rangers, abandoned their homes and fled to the strong forts in the interior, where they were joined by the rest of the inhabitants, until the entire population was gathered into one or two of the larger forts, principally Daniel M. Boone's Fort in Darst's Bottom. But in a day or two scouts came in and allayed the fears of the people by announcing that the alarming reports which had been circulated were entirely without foundation in truth, and that there were no hostile Indians near the settlements. So the people returned to their homes and resumed their usual occupations. This unnecessary fright was the cause of a serious loss to Col. Boone. He had been engaged for some time in the preparation of his autobiography, undertaken at the earnest and repeated solicitations of his friends, and the work was more than half completed. When the fort at Charrette was abandoned, his manuscripts, Bible, and a number of other articles, were placed in a pirogue to be conveyed down the river to Boone's Fort. Flanders Callaway and another man had charge of the craft, and while passing down a very swift place in the river, it struck a snag and capsized, emptying its contents into the river. Callaway and his companion barely escaped with their lives. Boone was a poor scribe, and as writing was very laborious to him, he never undertook the task again, and thus many valuable facts connected with his eventful life were lost.> BRYAN2:106-107

Letter from a pioneer woman of Callaway county MO to her sister in KY: <The men and dogs have a fine time, but the poor women have to suffer. They have to pack water from one-half to one mile, and do all the cooking and washing. So my advice to you is, stay where you are. But if you see any one coming to this part of the country, please send me a plank cradle for poor little Patrick. His poor little back is full of hard lumps, and skinned all over, lying in nothing but a cradle George made out of one-half of a hollow log, with a piece [of wood] on one end for a pillow. The poor child has a hard time, for he hain't got but two shirts in the world, and both of them is made of nettle bark, that almost scratches him to death. Great dents and whelps are all over the poor little creature's back. I don't want to have any more children if the poor little things are to be treated in this way. I told George so last night, and what you reckon he said? He said it was the very thing -- it would make them tough, and they could stand Bare and Deer hunting. George has got him a Buckskin hunting-shirt and pants, and he is gone hunting day and night. We have got some good, kind Neighbors, and we visit each other when we can. I forgot to tell you of a wedding I and George attended last week. They were married by an old Hard Shell Baptist preacher by the name of Jabe Ham. He had on a long buckskin overcoat that looked so funny! The man was in his shirt sleeves, with white cotton pants that just came down below his knees, and white cotton socks, and buckskin slippers on his feet. The girl was dressed in a short-waisted, low necked, short-sleeved white cotton dress, that was monstrous short for a tall girl like she was, for I don't reckon there was more than five yards of cloth in her dress. She also had on buckskin slippers, and her hair was tied up with a buckskin string, which is all the go out here. And when Mr. Ham was spelling and reading the ceremony from the book, the girl commenced sneezing, and the buckskin string slipped off and her hair flew all over her face, and everbody laughted.> quoted without citation in BRYAN2:77-78

David Bryan built his cabin in 1800 near the bank of Teuque creek, on a hill overlooking the MO river bottom; thereafter replaced it with a double-hewed two-storied log house, the first of its kind erected in the country. Remained in use as a dwelling until the 1880s. Flanders Callaway settled the Teuque creek area about the same time as David Bryan; built his cabin in the MO bottom, about half-way between the bluff and river, a mile from each. The Ramseys were near neighbors, about two miles northwest of Marthasville. BRYAN2:69,204

<Among the first prominent attorneys was Edward Hempstead, an unlettered man, but one who possessed strong sense and a fine talent for special pleading. He had a sharp, fierce, and barking manner of speaking, which had a great effect upon jurors, and generally awed them into acquiescence with his own views. His style became very popular, and was widely imitated by young attorneys.> BRYAN2:90-91
