"Indians were among the child's earliest recollections." 1736 a party of 25 Delawares visited the farm of George Boone, his grandfather. 1742 the Moravian missionary Count Zinzendorf held a synod in an Oley barn where there was preaching to Delawares by three recently converted warriors all through the night. "From these friendly aborigines the future Indian fighter was learning the red man's habits, character, and way of life, mastering the kinks and quirks of red psychology, gaining that amazing ability to `think Indian' which in after life enabled him, when trailing Indians, to know exactly what they were going to do next. Many a pioneer document from the desperate and bloody Kentucky years shows Daniel Boone quietly assuring his companions that the Indians would soon do thus-an-so -- as invariably they did!"
