Court docket, Salisbury District. Most of these it is not possible to date, but certain things stand out. DB's name appears 9 times in these photocopies. 5 of them are suits filed by "Williams and Henderson." These appear all to be the same case. The suit begins on a date unknown, and is continued; it next appears at the September term of 1768 and is continued again with the notation "conditions performed," perhaps implying that the interest was being paid? There were a total of four continuances of this type. Finally, at the March term of the court, 1770, the case is "pased": "Jury empd. & Sworn find the Conditions was performd, asess damage to L20.0.0[,] six pence costs." This is undoubedly the debt for which the warrant exists. Three of the subsequent appearances of DB's name on the record appear with John Lewis Beard, and seem to be associated with attempts to collect this dept. The only one of the 9 appearances not associated in some way with this debt to Henderson is a listing of Anthony Newman vs. Daniel Boone for Debt, date unknown, which was not completed.

Celebration at Holman's Ford, NC, 4/30/1910, presided by John Steele Henderson. 20-25,000 people in attendance. Daniel Boone Memorial Association. Home of Squire Boone SR. on the site were found china shards. <About one hundred yards from the home site is the Bone spring, and a hundred yards in the opposite direction, on the river bank, is what has knwon for generations as Boone's Cave or Devil's Den. This is an opening about two feet square, leading back into the solid rock, 80 feet in one direction and 45 feet in another, and from 3 to 5 feet high. This is a beautiful and pictureesque spot and all the surroundings are almost as primitive and wild as they were in olden times.> THE SALISBURY POST, 4/30/1910. <The spot where Squire Boone lived is on the top of a very high hill overlooking the beautiful Yadkin as it flows in from a northeasterly direction, striking the hill which turns it in a westerly direction, surging majestically round the large two hundred acre bottom of rich land lying between the river and the hills surrounding the "Boone residence." Within the memory of the people living, a part of the old log wall, Squire Boone's old residence, was seen standing, three or four feet high. There was under this old building what was believed to be an old cellar, which most country residences then possessed. . . . It is not known at what time Squire Boone moved across the river and settled in what is now Davie country, only a few miles away from where he first settled.> THE DOYSLESTOWN [PA] DAILY DEMOCRAT 5/2/1910.

Archibald Henderson claims that Richard Henderson made the motion for the wagon road in Salisbury Court. He is listed as making the prior motion, but not this one. It is thus clear that he was in court that day, but not that he made this, which does not indicate who made the motion.

<An English scientist, Francis Bailey of the royal Society, once met Boone on the Ohio River, as the old pioneer was floating in his canoe on a hunting expedition to the far west unaccompanied except by his dog and rifle, "old Checkicker" [sic]. Bailey asked him whether it did not give him a secret satisfaction to behold a province, in the discovery and settlement of which he had held so conspicious a part, rise from a desert wilderness, and at once to flourish in arts and sciences and the conveniences of life. But the old man "shook his head, and with a significant frown, said they were got too proud; and then began to enter upon the disadvantages of great improvements of society."> Taken from a mss fragment in Archibald Henderson Collection, Papers and Materials Relating to Daniel Boone, North Carolina Collection, University of North Carolina.

LCD to Martrom D. Lewis, 1/9/1889: <In 1851 I visited Col. Nathan Boone and lady near Springfield Missouri, spending nearly 2 weeks with them, taking notes pretty fully of their recollections of the grand old pioneer -- and visited others in the St. Charles Region. I have often visited Kentucky, commencing in 1843, and interviewed quite a number of Boone's early associates, among them one of his party of salt boilers at the Blue Licks of Feb, 1778, one who was with him at the battle of Blue Licks in 1782, one who was with him on Clinch in 1773-74 when Boone was there, and was also in Boonesborough during the big siege of 1778, &c, &c.

R. G. Thwaites to Archibald Henderson, 6/16/1913: Henderson had written for a typed copy of 311 pages of Draper's mss biography of Boone. <Do you really think it important that you should have this? I ask the question in full frankness, as between one scholar and another. It seems to me that that manuscript is rather out of date and that you would be paying a large price for what you could get out of it. There has been so much historical investigation done since Draper wrote that Life (from thirty to forty years ago [thus dates from mid1870s or '80s]) that in my estimation very little value now attaches to it.> letter in Archibald Henderson Collection, Papers and Materials Relating to Daniel Boone, North Carolina Collection, University of North Carolina.

<In 1802 settlers had located in such numbers throughout the Femme Osage country, that the people percieved the necessity of local government of some character, and by common consent, Col. Boone was selected dommandant of the district. He was given "discretionary" powers which amounted to an absolute dictatorship had he chosen to apply them. He was just and charitable in all his decisions, punishing severely all offenders against the law, and at the same time doing everything in his power to attract immigration and increase the prosperity of the territory. It was the general practice to whip offenders against the law upon the bare back.> HISTORY OF ST. CHARLES, WARREN AND MONTGOMERY COUNTIES:977.

David Gardyne to Benjamin Emmons, 9/23/1915 [enclosed in Emmons to Henderson, 9/20/1915]: <A doubt exists and I am of the opinion that a Blunder Occurd at the time of removing the remains, and at the placing of the tomb stones. A well Known fact, Boone had selected the spot of ground, Belong to a Son in law, Intending to be Buried Beside his Wife. Rebecca Boone Died nearly 8 years Before Daniel, And Was Burried at the chosen place. (Traditions) When the time came to Burry Boone, the grave diggers opening a grave Beside Rebecca, Discovered they Were digging into a "Lost grave." They then to carry out the Intention of Boone as near as possible, either dug a grave at Rebeccas Head or feet. Dr. Sylvanus Griswold Who was present at the time of Removing the Remains, gave me a Plat of the graves. I don't now remember Whether Daniels grave Was East or West of his Wife. It will be seen by this, that the Graves did not parallel north and South as originally Intended By Boone. The lost grave Would Being re-filled, would present the appearance of a fresh grave. The Tombstones were placed years later, I was told By John Jones, Still living at Mexico Mo, a Great Grand Son of Boone, the name of the man is unown. These Stones Were draged to the place by a Yoke of Oxen, and chain this men living undicided, Regarding the 3 fresh graves Walked down to the near by farm house the lady Whose name is also forgotten, accompanied the man up to the graves, and after discussing the matter she pointed to the two graves, saying "I Believe these must be the graves." By this, the Stones were placed the one to Rebecca's grave the other to the "Lost grave." Doubtless the Kentucky delegation found it thus. At the time of removing the Remains, a large crowd of people were present Including many Relatives of the Boones. They looked upon the act as one of Desecration By the Kentucky people. The excitement and disafection abated When a compact Was entered into With Harvy Griswold, owner of the Grave Yard, to erect a monument to Boone, and maintain the same, If the Relativew Would allow them to remove the Remains. Which was agreed to.> Letter in Archibald Henderson Collection, Papers and Materials Relating to Daniel Boone, North Carolina Collection, University of North Carolina.

John P. Arthur to Archibald Henderson, 12/15/1915: <Your letter received, and I thank you for its friendly tone. I am sure that I have not intentionally preverted [sic] history in any respect, and if I have I shall thank you to correct me. It was only the fear suggested by a friend that you might feel that I had intended to bbe personally unfriendlyto you that prompted the suggestion that you might not like what I have written about Richard Henderson and Daniel Boone.> In a follow-up letter of 1/10/1916, he includes the following paragraph as an "Addition and Correction" to his published history of Watauga County Tennessee: <Dr. Archibald Henderson. this gentleman writes (Jan. 6, 1916) to the effect that if I had read an article by him published in the American Historical Review for October 1914; and another, published in The Mississippi Historical Review [sic], Vol. I, December, 1914, I might have "tempered my prejudices and modified the offensiveness of my tone" in my "polemics" (Pages 42 to 52). Also that, in my references to himself, my tone lacked courtesy. I hasten to disclaim any intentional offensiveness or discourtesy. Having read the two articles above referred to, however, I am unable to withdraw or modify any of the statements concerning the facts referred to. On the contrary, I reaffirm that, aside from Dr. Henderson's unsupported statements, there is no satisfactory evidence that Boone owed Richard Henderson one cent; that he was employed by Henderson to go to Kentucky in 1769; that Henderson & Co. ever paid him for his services out of the 400,000 acres they received from Virginia and N.Carolina; that Richard Henderson ever conspired while he was on the Bench to violate the law he had sworn to uphold by purchasing lands from the Indians, or that there was a wagon road across the N.C. mountins in 1775.> Letter and statement in Archibald Henderson Collection, Papers and Materials Relating to Daniel Boone, North Carolina Collection, University of North Carolina.

Statement of George Chester Bryan, read at the unveiling of the Boone monument at the Boone-Bryan graveyard, 10/29/1915 [sent by Bryan to Archibald Henderson, 1/25/1916]: <It has been claimed by some that the committee from Kentucky were decieved and that other remains were given to them and that the remains of Boone and his wife still remain buried here. For shame on any man who would attempt to brand such an honorable body of men as composed that coommittee with such a lie! They could not have committed such an act of deception if they had wanted to; for the old Headstones stood here marking the place of their burial. David Bryan and his wife's headstones were also standing there at the feet of Boone and his wife and other mameber sof the Bryan dna Boone family were buried about them and their gaves all bear some mark of remberance. Boones and his wifes headstones (a common flat lime stone, shaped as headstones were usually shaped in those days, and with the initals of each uct into the stone with a coal chisel) and these old stones were lying here beside the sunken place that is yet visible from which the remains were removed. I remember them well. By our relatives they were considered too sacred to either be removed or set up again. Nor would the near relatives of Boone and his wife ever allow the graves filled up again. If all this is laid aside, at the time these remains were removed from the resting place Boone himself selected, there was not a single body buried here that there was not some one living near to whom their memory was dear and who would have prohibited the descration of the graves for such a purpose of deception. I know that the old free negro, Jeff Callaway, was induced by some designing persons in his old age to make a statement that other remains were substituted for Boone and his wife; but you must remember that at the time he made the statement, he was very old and in his "dotage." His mind was like a little childs and with proper prompting, could have been caused to believe he was stating a fact, but common sense alone should teach us he was wrong. The remains of Boone and his wife, Rebekah, now lie buried at Frankfort, Kentucky and the place of burial is marked by a valuable monument. Whether the story of the deception is started by the same parties who in the last few years have started two fake movements to raise funds from the Boone and Bryan relatives and other sources with the avoud purpose of doing something in Boone's Memory. One of which movements I am told here today raised a little over $500 and never gave any accounting of it, or other parties I do not know.> In Archibald Henderson Collection, Papers and Materials Relating to Daniel Boone, North Carolina Collection, University of North Carolina.

This Meeting appoints James Boone and Daniel Coles to speak with Squire Boone for countenancing his son's disorderly marriage.> 11/26/1747: <Thomas Ellis and John Hughes brought a Testimony against Israel Boone according as they were appointed which is ordered to be read by John Hughese between this and next Monthly Meeting on a first Day. It is as follows, Vizt. Whereas, Israel Boone, Son of Squire Boone of Exeter, having been educated and brought up amongst Friends and as a Member of this Meeting, hath of late married a wife who is not in Unity with Friends, thou he has been precautioned and informed of the dangerous consequences which mixt marriages are often subject to by Friends, who at the request of his Parents spoke with him, notwithstanding which he refected the advice given him by those who desired his present and future welfare to the fulfilling and accomplishing of his own will. Therefore this Meeting thinks themselves engaged for the clearing of the Blessed Truth, and the Professors thereof, to give such time as we may be sensible of his coming to a Godly sorrow in himself, which as it is given way unto will work true repentance and amendment of Life, and that it may be so that he may come to it, is the earnest desire of us his Friends. Signed on Behalf and by order of our Monthly Meeting, held at Maiden Creed, this 28th day of the 11th Month 1787. The Friends which were appointed to speak to Squire Boone report that they spoke with him and than he could not see that he had transgressed, and therefore was not willing to condemn it until he saw it to be a transgression. But, Lawrence Pearson having something on his mind to speak with the said Squire between this and next Monthly Meeting, the Meeting refers it till then.> 1/31/1748: <The Friends that were appointed to speak with Squire Boone report that they spoke with him and that he was not willing to give any satisfaction to the Meeting; therefore this Meeting thinks themselves engaged to testify against him, and appoints George Boone and Anthony Lee to draw a Testimony against him and bring to next Monthly Meeting for approbation.> 3/26/1748: <The Friends appointed the last Monthly Meeting but one to draw up a testiomny against Squire Boone brought one to this; and this Meeting approving of it Morris Ellis is appointed to reatd it at Exeter Meeting on a First Day after the next Quarterly Meeting between & next Monthly Meeting. Ellis Hughes is desired to give Squire Boone a copy of the Testimony: It is as follows; Vizt. Whereas, Squire Boone of Exeter in the County of Philadelphia hath been a Professor among us for many years and as a member of this Meeting who for want of giving Heed to that gift of God in himself, which united him to be as a Member amongst us, hath of late fallen from that good Order and Discipline of Friends, which he hath so long made profession of, in many particulars, Vizt. In and by countenancing of his Son's Marriage with one who is not in Unity with Friends and giving room to a reflecting Spirit even against his Friends who sought his everlasting Peace and Welfare, and against the order and Discipline of Friends, in general as may be more at large seem in his letter to our Monthly Meeting. And for as much as we have from time to time used many endeavours to bring him to a sense of his outgoings by the advice of Friends nominated and appointed by this Meeting to speak with him in order to bring him to a Sense of his Error, all which forms to work no Change in him for the better. Therefore this Meeting thinks themselves engaged for the clearing of the Blessed Trugh and the Professors thereof to give Public Tesimony against him as not being a Member with us until such time as we may be sensible of his coming to a Godly Sorrow in himself, which as it is given way unto will work true Repentance and amendment of Life and that he may come to it is the earnest Desire of us his Friends.

From the mss diary of Soelle, translated by Adelaide L. Fries, sent to Archibald Henderson, 1/21/1931: 4/12/1771: <I went with Mr. Abraham Wilson to Jonathan Buhn's. We came then to Buhns, who rejoiced in my arrival. The Saviour was very near to me in this house, and I spoke to them with a warm heart and the mild tears flowed, so that a work of grace might be perceived.> 4/16/1771: <Fourteen miles to John Buhn's. He is a man who has been touched by the Gospel, and is very tender when he hears about the Saviour. His wife gives him discipline enough when she has him alone, though she is friendly and obliging.> 9/14/1771: Went from the Forks into the Mountians; <to that of Nath. Buhn is a good day's journey and over a really bad road, which is really a foot path; a borse can travel it but clothing is torn to shreds by the bushes, and there are plenty of creeks, branches and marshy places. Toward susnset we reached the home of Nath. Buhn. Some people had already come fifteen or twenty miles so as not to miss the preaching tomorrow. The land is not thickly settled, as only here and there, far apart, can they find places where they can build and plant. What land they have is very fertile, and they have plenty of grass on the mountains. Most of the settlers have been here only two or three years, coming from Virginia. Sunday the 15th. After the people had gathered, the service began about one o'clock, being held under a large tree in the bottom as the house was not nearly large enough. I spoke on the worlds Is. 45, 22, "Look unto me." I spoke with freedom and the listeners were very attentive and some were moved. In the evening Mr. Buhn's wife talked with me; she is a daughter of Joseph Bryant, where Br. Utley has preached. She is by nature a quiet soul, and of few words. She told me of her need, and that her heart was often restless and anxious, though then the feelings would again leave her. She can not read. I heard her gladly and told her of the loving heart of Jesus, open to her, and bade her turn to Him whereever she was by day or night. She seems less earnest in the matter than he, but has more feeeling.> <The people here are very poor, they live widely scattered and the roads are bad.> 2/15/1773: <I visited William Briant, and the old, sick, Mother Buhn. She is a Quaker by birth, but very eager for grace and the forgiveness of her sins. She was very glad that I came to her, and it was given to me to tell her of the grace through the blood of Jesus for all poor longing souls, to which she listened with many tears. In a prayer I commended her to Him and to His grace, and so took leave of her.> In Archibald Henderson Collection, Papers and Materials Relating to Daniel Boone, North Carolina Collection, University of North Carolina.

<Historians all say that when Daniel Boone brought his family to Kentucky in 177_, his wife and daughters "were the first white women that ever stood on the banks of Kentucky river." this statement is untrue except as to one of his daughters, Susannah, who had married Wm Hayes in North Carolina. . . . Also a negro woman, presumably a slave of Col. Calloway.> Archibald Henderson, in Archibald Henderson Papers, Southern Historical Collection, University of North Carolina.

The controversy over Israel's marriage 1: 10/31/1747: <This meeting appoints Thomas Ellis and John Hughes to draw a Testimony against Israel Boone for Marrying a Wife not in Unity with Friends, and bring it to next Monthly Meeting for approbation. This Meeting appoints James Boone and Daniel Coles to speak with Squire Boone for countenancing his son's disorderly marriage.> 11/26/1747: <Thomas Ellis and John Hughes brought a Testimony against Israel Boone according as they were appointed which is ordered to be read by John Hughese between this and next Monthly Meeting on a first Day. It is as follows, Vizt. Whereas, Israel Boone, Son of Squire Boone of Exeter, having been educated and brought up amongst Friends and as a Member of this Meeting, hath of late married a wife who is not in Unity with Friends, thou he has been precautioned and informed of the dangerous consequences which mixt marriages are often subject to by Friends, who at the request of his Parents spoke with him, notwithstanding which he refected the advice given him by those who desired his present and future welfare to the fulfilling and accomplishing of his own will. Therefore this Meeting thinks themselves engaged for the clearing of the Blessed Truth, and the Professors thereof, to give such time as we may be sensible of his coming to a Godly sorrow in himself, which as it is given way unto will work true repentance and amendment of Life, and that it may be so that he may come to it, is the earnest desire of us his Friends. Signed on Behalf and by order of our Monthly Meeting, held at Maiden Creed, this 28th day of the 11th Month 1787. The Friends which were appointed to speak to Squire Boone report that they spoke with him and than he could not see that he had transgressed, and therefore was not willing to condemn it until he saw it to be a transgression. But, Lawrence Pearson having something on his mind to speak with the said Squire between this and next Monthly Meeting, the Meeting refers it till then.> continued

The controversy over Israel's marriage 2: 1/31/1748: <The Friends that were appointed to speak with Squire Boone report that they spoke with him and that he was not willing to give any satisfaction to the Meeting; therefore this Meeting thinks themselves engaged to testify against him, and appoints George Boone and Anthony Lee to draw a Testimony against him and bring to next Monthly Meeting for approbation.> 3/26/1748: <The Friends appointed the last Monthly Meeting but one to draw up a testiomny against Squire Boone brought one to this; and this Meeting approving of it Morris Ellis is appointed to reatd it at Exeter Meeting on a First Day after the next Quarterly Meeting between & next Monthly Meeting. Ellis Hughes is desired to give Squire Boone a copy of the Testimony: It is as follows; Vizt. Whereas, Squire Boone of Exeter in the County of Philadelphia hath been a Professor among us for many years and as a member of this Meeting who for want of giving Heed to that gift of God in himself, which united him to be as a Member amongst us, hath of late fallen from that good Order and Discipline of Friends, which he hath so long made profession of, in many particulars, Vizt. In and by countenancing of his Son's Marriage with one who is not in Unity with Friends and giving room to a reflecting Spirit even against his Friends who sought his everlasting Peace and Welfare, and against the order and Discipline of Friends, in general as may be more at large seem in his letter to our Monthly Meeting. And for as much as we have from time to time used many endeavours to bring him to a sense of his outgoings by the advice of Friends nominated and appointed by this Meeting to speak with him in order to bring him to a Sense of his Error, all which forms to work no Change in him for the better. Therefore this Meeting thinks themselves engaged for the clearing of the Blessed Trugh and the Professors thereof to give Public Tesimony against him as not being a Member with us until such time as we may be sensible of his coming to a Godly Sorrow in himself, which as it is given way unto will work true Repentance and amendment of Life and that he may come to it is the earnest Desire of us his Friends. Signed on behalf and by order of our Monthly Meeting held at Maiden Creek athe 26th day of the 3rd Month, 1748, By Robert Penrose.> Copy in Archibald Henderson Collection, Papers and Materials Relating to Daniel Boone, North Carolina Collection, University of North Carolina.
