They conducted 79 days of sessions over 7 months, heard 1400 claims, dispensed 1328 certificates totalling 1.3 million acres, vaguely located. On average they issued 16 certificates per day, and thus had no time to inquire into potentially conflicting property lines. They inspired bitter feelings.

This was one of the more precise locations. The actual boundaries awaited official survey, which he had three years to accomplish. At survey, a man tried to incorporate springs and other natural features within his own tract, thus producing irregular shapes.

CH7 In 4 years as Deputy Surveyor of Fayette and Lincoln counties, DB executed about 150 surveys varying from 15,000 to 50 acres. Although his commission varied, he received a basic fee of 2s 6d VA currency, as well as an off-the-books land bonus for executing a survey. He struck side deals entitling him to thousands of acres. He surveyed in his own name 20,279 acres. Between 1783-86 he sold his rights to 11,900 acres of these, but he carried more than 8000 acres through to grant. He had become a full-fledged land speculator. These activities had an unsavory reputation. Caleb Wallace to James Madison, 7/12/1785 (Caleb Wallace Letters, KHS): Land jobbing "has been attended with much Villainy in other parts," but in KY "this kind of speculation" was so extensive it gave rise to many "aversions." At a public meeting in Harrodsburg in 1781, a group of land jobbers were attacked and dispersed. People began to impugn Boone's honesty and raised doubts about his surveys. Accused of performing "chimney corner" surveys, making up the boundaries.

But it was really a "forbidden land," for once there, land could not be obtained, and they were "oblig'd to become the hewers of wood and Drawers of water." Moses Austin quoted in Stephen A.

CH7 In the period of KY statehood, DB obtained no permanent title to any of the tracts for which he held grants, although he continued to acquire grants through his work as a surveyor. In the first place this owed to his shortcomings as a surveyor: through a combination of inadequate training, sloppy measuring, ambiguous marking, "Boone's surveys were a disaster." Those who lost claims as a result of deficiencies in DB's work sued him for damages plus costs. In 5/1788 in Bourbon County Court, three different men sued him "for breach of his promise and assumption," and all won judgements against him. He appealed one of the verdicts. (citing Bourbon County Court, Order Book A, 1786-93, 133, 139, 161, 243, University of Kentucky.) quoted in Stephen A. Aron, "How the West was Lost: The Transformation of Kentucky from Daniel Boone to Henry Clay." (Ph.D. dissertation, University of California, Berkeley, 1990):267.

CH7 In the 1790s, growing embittered about the workings of the legal system, Boone stopped appealing judgements, frequently failed to appear in court to defend himself. Similarly, Squire Boone grew so tired of suits that he claimed to be "principaled against going into town on any business whatsoever." Deposition of Squire Boone, May 18, 1804, quoted in Stephen A. Aron, "How the West was Lost: The Transformation of Kentucky from Daniel Boone to Henry Clay." (Ph.D. dissertation, University of California, Berkeley, 1990):268.

CH10 John Breckinridge of Virginia founded the family dynasty in KY. He was a leader of the coalition of lawyers, merchants, planters who came to dominate KY politics during the 1790s. It was men like these who ran the system that Boone came to despise, and thus it was ironic that his descendants were so prominent in the movement to return Boone's body to KY.
