2: concerning Tract No. 1, Boone's settlement and preemption of 1400 acres on Stoner's Creek. Before the court of land commissioners, December 24, 1779: <Daniel Boone this day claimed a settlement and preemption to a tract of land in the district of Kentucky lying on the waters of Licking, including a small spring on the northeast side of a small branch, a camp and some bushes cut down at the same, about 20 miles east from Boonesborough, by the said Boone settling and raising a crop of corn in the year 1775 and 1776. Satisfactory proof being made to the court, they are of the opinion that the said Boone has a right to a settlement of 400 acres of land, including the above location and the preemption of 1,000 acres adjoining. Certificate issue accordingly.> On 1/17/1780 DB entered his certificate of settlement for 400 acres, and 12/11/1782 he entered the preemption warrant for 1000 acres: <Daniel Boone enters 1,000 acres on preemption warrant No. 1243 [sic, should be 10243], joining his settlement on the south side and running south for quantity.> The surveys for this land were run by William Hays on 8/29/1783: <Surveyed for Daniel Boone 400 acres by virtue of a certificate of settlement entered January 17, 1780, on the waters of Stoner's Fork of Licking. Beginning at A, thence south 160 poles, crossing a branch to B, thence west 400 poles including a spring at an old camp on the north side of the branch and some bushes cut, to C. Thence north 160 poles to D. Thence east 400 poles, crossing the aforesaid branch, to the beginning.> And <Surveyed for Danidl Boone 1,00 acres by virtue of preemption warrant No. 1243 entered December 11, 1782, lying on the south of his settlement. Beginning at A, a corner to the settlement, thence south 400 poles, thence west 400 poles, thence north 400 poles, crossing a branch to D, cornering with the settlement, thence along the settlement line to the beginning.> Boone never appears to have lived on this land. On 7/15/1785 he assigned it to William Scholl [father of Boone's son-in-law Joseph Scholl, who married Lavinia that year]. There were no conflicts or suits over title to this tract. J.R. Cooper, in LEXINGTON HERALD, 3/8/1925; typescript and mimeographed copy, 1958, in MHS and KHS, continued

4: Concerning Tract No. 3, 500 acres on Duirts [Jouett's] Creek, Clark County. It was the key piece of Boone's Station lands [four tracts in total, totaling some 1600 acres]. Entered 7/4/1780, surveyed by Septimus Davis, 9/2/1785. The patent for this tract, in the names of Daniel Boone and William Hays, was not granted until 4/9/1796. Why they waited 11 years after the survey is not known. In 1797 they transfered it: <Daniel Boone and William Hays of the counties of Bourbon and Fayette, to Benjamin Winslow, of Orange county, Va., for divers good causes and 100 pounds of them paid convey 500 acres patented in the name of Daniel Boone and William Hays, improperly, it being the equitable right of said Benjamin Winslow. Being in the county of Clark at the mouth of Juilt's [sic] creek.> There must have been dispute over the tract, but there were no suits, and it the conflicting claims were settled in this manner.

7: Concerning Tract No. 6, 5000 acres assigned by Thomas Logwood, probably as Boone's fee for more extensive surveys run for Logwood. This is the tract surveyed in the BOONEMSS 4/22/1785. Boone recorded the surveys for this tract as done 4/10/1785. The title was granted to DB on 9/21/1787. Boone divided these lands and sold off a number of farms: 8/19/1788: , and , ; 9/16/1788: , , , and All these sales were made in 8-9/1788, prior to DB's removal to Kanawha County, VA. They cover 2200 acres for which he received L460, or about $2300. J.R. Cooper, in LEXINGTON HERALD, 3/15/1925; typescript and mimeographed copy, 1958, in MHS and KHS, continued

4/24/1794 Deposition taken in re: Boffman v. Hickman, 1: <This day came Daniel Boone before us, two of the justices of said county, and made oath to the best of his knowledge and "about the last of May or first of June, 1774, Mr. James Hickman employed me to locate, enter and direct the surveying of 4,000 acres of land as soon as times would admit of it, and loged with me Colonel Preston's certificate for the survey, and on the 26th day of June the same year I was employed by Governor Dunmore to go out to that county and give the surveyors notice of the breaking out of the Indian war. I took with me Michael Stoner and on the creek that goes by the name of Hickman's creek about two or three miles below Col. Levi Todd's I cut the two first letters of the said Hickman's name on a large water oak with a large stone grown in the fork of said tree, in the presence of said Stoner. And finding the surveyors were drove in by the Indians I returned home and wrote to Colonel Preston to make the entry for Mr. Hickman at that tree and agreeable to my instructions and in March, 1775, I went out again where I met Mr. Douglas, who surveyed the year before on Hickman's creek and made application to him to make Hickman's surveys. When I told him where the entry lay he told me he had surveyed the same land in 1774 and I had better move the entry. Sometime that summer I went to Colonel Floyd's on Boone creek. He there told me that he could make the surveys on any vacant land and when he went home he would make the entry agreeable to the survey. On this advice I chose out the 2,000 acres now contending for on the west side of Boone's creek and 2,000 on the east side and made the surveys. Sometime after Colonel Floyd came to Boonesborough and told me one of the surveys had run foul of Thomas Barnes' and wished me to give up that survey. I told him I could not do that until I saw what quantity Barnes' would take off. Perhaps 1,000 may be got to be plain with you he then said. I want that survey for Jacob Boffman. He has found a fine spring on it and if you will give it up I will go with you and make the survey otherwise on as good land as than. I told him I would not do no such thing until I saw other land surveyed and then if I like the last survey as well as the first I would give up the former, but we never made the other nor was the former survey gave up.> continued

Hickman v. Boffman <The final statement of Daniel Boone in his deposition in the case of Hickman vs Boffman to recover 1,55 acres of land bears the stamp of honesty and of a determination to do the right thing. At the close of his deposition, Boone, who was a witness for the Boffmans asked the commissioners if his testimony was not more in favor of Hickman than the Boffmans. "However, let me gain or lose, this is the truth of the matter," he said. As an evidence of this he took the following action in the following year, 1795, 13 years before the final decree was entered: ". . . A deed made June 10, 1795, by Daniel Boone, Jr., and Daniel Boone, Sr., of County of Conhaway, State of Va., to James Hickman, Jr., of Fayette county, Ky., in consideration of ten pounds good and lawful money of Kentucky conveys on waters of Boone's creek, containing by estimation 600 acres more or less, by a survey claimed by the two heirs of Israel Boone, deceased. . . ." This document shows Daniel Boone's character. He has seen where, as he believes, he was led into error by Col. John Floyd and he corrects it by returning the land, the consideration being only nominal.> J.R. Cooper, in LEXINGTON HERALD, 3/29/1925; typescript and mimeographed copy, 1958, in MHS and KHS.

11: Concerning Tract No. 10, 1000 acres in Lincoln County. At Boonesborough, 12/21/1779, this tract was claimed by settlement and preemption by Joseph Hughes. On 1/5/1785 it was patented to Boone, assignee of Hughes. This land lay on Silver Creek next to lands surveyed by Boone bor Nathaniel Hart. Boone sold this land and it eventually passed into the hands of Samuel Estill. In 1801, the the suit Heirs of Nathaniel Hart, v. Samuel Estill and others, Boone was a co-defendant. The suit claimed that DB had surveyed Hart's land "fraudulently" so as to maximize his own tract. The suit was brought by a lawyer signing as "H. Clay" [need to check this]. The case was finally decided for the defendants, 1805: J.R. Cooper, in LEXINGTON HERALD, 4/19/1925; typescript and mimeographed copy, 1958, in MHS and KHS, concluded.
