Edward Boone Scholl to LCD, Griggsville IL, 8/25/1854: <I think I have heard it repeated so often that I can give you a more definite account than any other I have ever said, which is as follows: The two brothers went to the Blue Licks to get provisions for Briants Station. Took five horses with them; got three horses pretty well loaded. Thought they would make out their load in the licks and for that purpose struck the nearest course for the scene. Struck the main track 3/4 of a mile from the Licks and discovered the trail of the Indians. No. 14 [there were 14 Indians]. There being a light rain they could easily track them. Daniel cauthioned edward to keep a lookout. They soon arrived in sight of the Licks and saw the fourteen Indians; at the same time they was seen. They struck their course for the Station and traveled some twenty miles and Edward proposed to let their horses feed. Daniel objected, saying he knew the Indians knew him and could follow their trail and would make an effort to capture them. Edward insisted, and they got to Kinkston in Montgomery County, Ky;, as now is. They went into the creek, followed the same one mile, then turned out on the opposite side, unloaded their horses, and Daniel says I will take my gun and walk up the creek and see if I can see anything to shoot, you keep a good lookout. When Daniel got 1/4 mile up the creek he saw a bear and shot the same and at the very same moment there was seven guns fired at Edward and five bullets entered his body. At the same moment, Daniel looked around and saw the other seven running right at him. He being staisfied of his brother's fall thought best to make his own escape. He ran into the cane; the Indians then set their dog on him, this giving them the advantage of the attack. He first tried coaxing the dog and finally shot him and got behind a tree and waited the approach of the Indians, and in hearing distance they decided it would not do to follow him or he would serve them as their dog had been. This was on the 5th day of October 1780. He then started to Lexington and got there at breakfast. Immediately they raised a company and Abraham Scholl was of the company and when they arrived at the place they saw a wildcat eating the would. I have heard Abraham tell the circumstances.> quoted in THMPSN:185

Edward Boone Scholl to LCD, 8/23/1854: <Daniel Boone was 2nd in command when they got to the river they saw several Indians running from the bank. In holding a consultation Daniel Boone, knowing the position of the ground and advantage the ground would give the Indians, objected, saying those Indians would only decoy them, which proved true. Their commander in chief [McGary?] twitted him with cowardice, to which he replied, "I can go as far as any of you." One of his sons fell in the battle. I recollect distinctly there was 60 widows made that day. How many fell I don't recollect.> quoted in THMPSN:180

Septimus Scholl, interviewed by John D. Shane in 1844 or 1845: <One of the pleasant Sunday evenings in May, the daughter of Col. Boone and two daughters of Flanders Callaway crossed the river in a canoe; landing on the north bank and rambling up and down the bank in pursuit for flowers which grew spontaneously, some Indians making prisoners of them bore off immediately. Bone, hearing their screams, knew what was the event, and made arrangement immediately for pursuit, but night closing in, soon made the attempt fruitless until morning, when they renewed their pursuit. They followed the Indian trail all day long, being enabled to do so from the contrivances of the girls. They broke the bushes and trailed down weeds, and to give more certainty to the pursuers, they tore small strips of their under-dressing which was red, and dropped them occasionally. The Indians discovered this and shook their tomahawks over their heads and taking them by the tops of their heads, and drawing a knife around their throats, they further threatened to scalp them, if they did not desist from this course. The Indians, apprehensive of being pursued, never made a fire at night, nor stopped to cook anything to eat, until Tuesday morning, when having killed a large deer, they made a fire and stopped to roast some meat. All of the Indians being engaged in roasting and eating at the same time, a very uncommon occurrence, Boone and his party arrived undiscovered, and fired on and killed the most of them at once. The balance fled, leaving the girls sitting on a log, at a small distance, who were soon joined by Boone and his party; and after eating of the roasted venison, were taken back to Boonesborough without loss or molestation.> copy given by A. C. Barrow of Auburn AL, a Scholl descendant, quoted in THMPSN:262-63

Married Sarah Griffin Lewis. Her father was John Baptist Lewis. Emigrated to MO from Virginia in 1795. Settled on Bonhomme Bottom, 28 miles west of St. Louis. He was noted as the first English-speaking farmer on the Missouri River. He established a ferry across the river. Across and up river a bit was Femme Osage. This ferry described as "leading from St. Louis to the Boone's Lick Settlement." Sarah's brothers were with Daniel Morgan in the War of 1812 unit known as Howard's Rangers. Sarah was only 14 when she married in March 1800; but she was described as "an Amazon" in stature. no sources cited THMPSN:444-45

Col. John Shaw, born 1782 in NY, interviewed by Lyman Draper in September 1855 at his residence in Pike county. Met DB in 1808; much in his company for the next six years. Campaigned in the War of 1812 with Daniel Morgan and Nathan. Says this reprinted in WISCONSIN HISTORICAL COLLECTIONS 2. <Boone, now 73, was still erect and powerful, broad of chest, muscular, quick as a bear trap, still a crack shot with his powerful Kentucky rifle, which weighed 11 pounds and had an octagonal-shaped barrel more than four feet in length. He was fair of countenance, with a high bold forehead, a noble bearing and a look in his eye that suggested a deeply reverent character. Boone considered himself an emissary, chosen from on High to open the American wilderness. At this time he was a great hunter of the beaver, the pelts of which he could sell in St. Louis at good prices. At night, before a roaring fire, he would sometimes relate, with becoming modesty, incidents of his own and Simon Kenton's stirring exploits on the "dark and bloody ground." Boone had cause to hate the Indians; he had lost sons and a brother at their hands. But a thing so gross as hatred was foreign to Boone's nature. He fought the Indians fairly, on terms that made him respected among the tribes. He respected the rights of the preemptor of the soil and often stemmed the impetuosity of outraged settlers eager to wreak vengeance on the tribes, thereby frustrating hostilities that would have been luckless for the whites.> THMPSN:70

The Boones were about 30 miles from the southern tip of original Pike county (now Calhoun county), Illinois. Legends of DB in the area were in circulation during the first quarter of the nineteenth century; he quotes a letter from Rebecca Burlend to her daughter in England (undated) telling of hearing the story of Jemima Boone's captivity. Boone settlers in the area (1822) were Zachariah and Dinah Boone Allen (she the daughter of Jonathan Boone, DB's brother), their sons Jonathan Boone Allen and Lewis Allen, their daughter Polly Boone Allen; also Joseph Jackson and his wife Malinda Scholl Jackson, daughter of Peter and Mary Boone Scholl.

Polly Boone Allen Thornton, granddaughter of Jonathan Boone, DB's brother, was the last of the Pike county direct descendants, died in 1882. Known as "Aunt Polly" in the neighborhood. <She, as was common among the Boone women in Pike county, loved her pipe. Mr. Lindsey [an old resident] says he has often seen Aunt Polly sitting in front of the fireplace, smoking her old stone pipe with its reed stem as black as a coal. In her old age, he says Aunt Polly sat by the fire and smoked her pipe until "she just dried up and withered away."> THMPSN:94

Boone. He got ahead of his father and the Indians ahead of him. He re-loaded his gun and fired after his father had passed him on the retreat; when he, in turn, received a deadly shot in the breast.

Statement of Rachel Scholl Denton, daughter of William Scholl: <That cold winter we lived on buffalo, bear, deer, and turkies. All were very lean and poor from the severe winter and the sleet-covered condition of the cane, but such as it was Boone and his friends furnished a good supply. Boone had considerable supply of corn but had divided even to his last pone with the newcomers.> <Boone's Station settled on Israel Boone's preemption. In spring of '80 Boone had the whole station engaged in sugar making. The poor miserable buffalo would come to drink the sugar water and could hardly drive them off, they were so poor. In the spring of a year children would gather up rotted nettles, make warp of it and fill it with wool or more commonly buffalo hair.> quoted in THMPSN:133

DB strode into their clearing, and leaning on his rifle, engaged her father in conversation. She was attracted by his fringed buckskin suit and remembered his face as a kindly one. She also remembered "old woodcuts" of the hunter and said they looked like him. no quoting, but citing William Riley Willsey, an antiquarian, who interviewed her, in THMPSN:258

Edward Boone Scholl to LCD, Griggsville IL, 1/5/1856: <They unloaded their horses and turned them out to graze. Daniel feeling uneasy said to Edward who had gathered some hickory nuts he had better keep a good lookout and he would take his gun and welk up the stream, where we presume as appears they was in sight when the two brothers separated and had agreed among themselves for seven followed Daniel and the other seven crawled so near as to enable five of them to shoot Edward at the same time. The only thing that saved Daniel was he shot a bear and at the crack of his rifle the other seven fired at Edward and looking around he saw the seven that was dogging him so near as to prepare him but made several bullet holes through his hunting shirt. He knew what the fate of his brother was and he immediately ran for the cane to screen him. The Indians set their dog on him and he tried to coax the dog, then to aggravate him, but to no purpose. The constant barking of the dog gave the Indians the advantage as they could getnear him by the barking of the dog. At last he shot the dog and stopped so near as to hear the Indians consult and say that he would kill them all if they followed him; so decided if they followed to shoot and run in the cane and hide and shoot as they would have to follow his track and he could watch his back track and shoot the whole of them. He then started for Lexington and traveled by. He arrived in Lexington while they was at breakfast and they immediately raised a company and when they got to the place there was a wildcat eating at the wound in the breast; for the Indians had scalped Edward. They then buried him on the side of the hill. I have been past the place when a boy several times.> quoted in THMPSN:186
