Stone House. Offered for sale by Mary Potter Love, Inc., of St. Louis. An impressive brochure prepared to advertise this sale (I have a copy) announces: "A Rare Opportunity is Yours." It describes the property as: a <noble old house of Georgian architecture, built of native stone, and imbued with historic background.> Stone walls 2.5 feet thick. Foundation of native stone. Roof of handhewn cypress shingles from the cypress swamps of SE MO. <An architect's dream fabricated of local materials into a living symbol of structural solidity and aesthetic beauty.> <Its balance, mass and proportions are technically and artistically perfect. To illustrate, the interior trim of native walnut is fashioned with rare skill and artistry; hand-carving impresses the observer with its rectilinear strength and dignity and not as mere embellishment or ornamentation. The structural timbers of the house are all hand-hewn of native white oak and walnut, secured in place by wooden pins and wedges. To see the place is to love it with a love saturated with admiration and respect.> <Situated in a Virginia-like setting on 500 acres of rolling farmland, meadow and woodland.> <The view from the rear overlooks the fertile and luscious Femme Osage Valley and Femme Osage Creek, which flows through the property approximately a quarter of a mile from the house. This picturesque little stream of crystal clear water murmurs its way to the Missouri over a clean bed of sand and gravel. From time to time it widens and deepens into pools of a

In the spring of 1820 St. Louis reeled from the effects of the world-wide depression. The "Kentucky Company" of Noah M. Ludlow had attempted to "plant the drama" in the city, but neither the comedies of Mr. Sheridan nor the usually popular "bloodies" were profitable in those times, and the end of the season found the troupe penniless. It was at this time that Harding made his portrait of Boone. James Otto Lewis, a member of the company, later famous for his Indian portraits, reproduced the Harding portrait in a copper-plate engraving. (Lewis, in the MISSOURI REPUBLICAN of 10/14/1820, said he had arranged to have the portrait made so that he could engrave it.) Ludlow was to make and gild frames for them, and the sets would sell at $3. It was advertised in the MISSOURI REPUBLICAN from 10/11/1820 to 1/3/1821. Some 200-300 prints were sold. It is possible that Ludlow may have tinted some of the prints (as is one of the copies in MHS), for at the time they were on sale he was advertising "Coach, Sign, and Ornamental Painting," as well as "Maps coloured." This is the earliest known print made west of the Mississippi River, and the only known contemporary full-length portrait of Daniel Boone.

Stone House. Ben L. Emmons to Mary Louise Dalton, 1/2/1907 [he the owner of a title company in St. Charles, and had obviously done research on the property]: <Charles M. Johnson, the father of Mrs. Harriet B. Shore, purchased of Nathan Boone, Survey No. 1794, T. 45, R. 1 and 2, East, on Jany 24, 1837, containing 700 acres. This will include the entire grant. I find that about same date, Charles M. Johnson sold and conveyed about 350 acres of said grant to William B. Fant. Col. Preston did not buy any of this land. I think he located a few miles North of Johnson. This survey No. 1794 was not the original "Boone" grant. The original Boone grant was Survey No. 1246 [corrected in pencil to 1646], near the Missouri River. Survey No. 1794 was confirmed to Nathan Boone Feby 2 1816, by the Board of Commissioners appointed to adjust Land Titles in the Territory of Louisiana. This grant reads in Name of Nathan Boone, under Robert Hall. From the Hon. T. F. McDearmon, of this City, who was born and raised in that neighborhood, I learn that old Daniel Boone lived on this land for many years, the purported old Boone cabin being still on it. The old stone house built by Nathan Boone and in which Daniel Boone died, is still on the place and now occupied by a german, whose name I cannot recall just at present moment. This land remained in the Fant and Johnson families for many years.> ALS, Boone Family Papers, MHS

Stone House. Recollections of Mrs. H. B. Shore, whose father Mr. Charles Johnson bought the Nathan Boone place in 1836 or 1837, circa 1900. <My father's share of the purchase included the stone house and over six hundred acres, only forty of which were under cultivation. I mention this to show the carefeee habits of the family. They hunted and danced and lived on Col. Boone's salary. The first night my father staid in the house he and Col. Preston found fourteen fiddles in a large press in their room. As a child I often heard Howard and John Boone, sons of Col. Nathan Boone, tell of how their grandfather kept his coffin in an unfinished attic room. This was my play room, and the gruesome fact spoiled much of my pleasure. I would not stay in the room alone. <When my father bought the Boone place there was a cabin very near a large boiling spring surrounded by elm trees. That cabin was Daniel Boone's home. I think he never lived anywhere else until in his old age he lived with his son. The cabin was about 100 yards from the stone house. . . . My father had the cabin moved up to the yard and used it for negro quarters. Later it was used for a turkey house, and the man who afterward bought the place used it for a pig pen. <Boone's grandson, Col. John Boone, told me that he was a small boy when his grandfather died, and that he remembered that his grandfather took him on his back one day and claimbed the hill above the stone house and shot a deer. Then the old man put his knife in the boy's little hand and helped him to cut the deer's throat. <What I have told you about Boone I have heard from his grandsons.> Boone Family Papers, MHS

Stone House Ben L. Emmons, title examiner, to Nettie Beauregard, archivist MHS, 5/13/1926: on the background of the Boone place and house. Daniel Morgan Boone settled around 1797. Given a tract of 600 arpents (510 acres), survey No. 20, in Township 45, Range 2 East, on which the town of Matson is now located. Confirmed by US on 12/13/1808 (American State Papers, 2:563). 1799 Daniel Boone arrived and settled on land adjoining his son DM Boone, designated as Survey No. 1646. This land ran from bluffs to the Missouri River, and contained 1000 arpens, confirmed to him 2/2/1816 (ASP 3:332). It was there that an attempt was made to found the town named Missouriton. Mostly bottom land, and subject to overflow, it has mostly washed away. On a patch of high ground remained the cabin of DB. Abraham Shobe purchased nearly all of Survey No 20 from DM Boone 1/23/1819. There are three deeds signed by DB: to William Glenn, 1/19/1815 for 200 acres; to William Coshow, 5/6/1815, for 161 acres; and to Abraham Shobe, 1/23/1819, the remainder of Survey No. 1646. After the sale of this property, DB lived with Flanders and Jemima, but died while visiting Nathan in 9/1820. Before he sold his land he lived with DM Boone. He never lived in the stone house. That is located on Survey No. 1794, Township 45, Ranges 1 and 2 east. Made by Spanish government on 1/10/1800, confimed 2/2/1816 (ASP 3:335). There is only hear-say evidence that DB helped in the construction of the house. No proof of the DB carving of the woodwork. But it would have been foolish to construct such a house before the confirmation of the grant in 1816. Moreover, Nathan was always on the trail, hunting and survey, and did not settle down permanently until after the death of his father. Thus he concludes, the log cabin on this tract was for the Nathan Boone family; and that the stone house was erected around the time of the death of DB. Nathan and Olive executed a deed of trust on all of the property for $1825 in 1823, and this may have followed the construction of the house about 1820. Good quote: <If all the tales and yarns told about Boone were collected together, it would take several volumes to hold them. If all the socalled relicts of Boone were collected together it would take several rooms to hold them. Whereas, bear in mind, that Boone lived in a one room cabin.> ALS Boone Family Papers, MHS

Old Stone House William Boone Douglass, President Boone Family Association to Bess L. Hawthorne, State Director of the Association for Illinois, 5/26/1927: <It is a mistake to say that "Boone did not own a foot of land (in Missouri) simply because his title was held to be bad. He was in possession of the land under color of titles, and his ownership continued until he was dispossed by action of the courts, which never occurred. Congress did not GIVE Boone the land, but merely cured the defect in his title by confirmation. Boone could very properly convey any portion of that land at any time after his grant of 1800 up to the time of his death. After his title was questioned, instead of leaving the land, it became all the more important that he should stay there, which doubtless he did until he moved to the home of Callaway. . . . The painting of Boone was made at Callaway's home in 1820, where Daniel Boone was then living. When did he change his residence to live with Nathan? Any one asserting such a change must be prepared to sustain it by unquestionable evidence. I know of no evidence of any kind to support such a view, but I do know of much evidence to the contrary.> <I know of no evidence to support the claim that Daniel Boone planned the house which Nathan built, assisted in its building and carved the mantel, but I do know much evidence that would make such a view wholly improbable, for we know that he had no training or experience to fit him for such work. To support such a claim, one must prove it, which has not been done. . . . As you say, the old Nathan Boone house is beautiful, and well deserving of preservation. Let us be content to accept it as the house in which Daniel Boone died. I sincerely hope it will be preserved, but let us oppose the cheapening of both the house and Daniel Boone as well by persons making for it unwarranted claims.> <There is no evidence to support the statement that the tree at Nathan Boone's house is the "Boone Judgement Tree," and there is much evidence to support the contrary view, that it is not the tree, which must have been on either Daniel's own land or that of his son Daniel Morgan Boone, where he made his first home. . . . In my opinion, historians are fully warranted in accepting as a fact the traditions of the Boone Judgement Tree, because it is most reasonable and probably. His small cottage would not suffice for court-room. Then too, the fact that a tree at Fort Boonesborough served as the American "House of Representatives," of which Daniel Boone was a member, would naturally suggest to him the use of a tree for his own "court house."> ALS Boone Family Papers, MHS
