Daniel's father, Squire Boone, purchased land in the Yadkin Valley (today Davidson Co.) in 1753. Had to pay annual rent and was obligated to clear three out of every 100 acres every three years: "Clearing forest land was a tremendous task -- trees to be cut down, stumps to be dug out, underbrush to be chopped away, stones to be moved, and the earth itself a hopeless tangle of matted roots. An acre a year meant back-breaking work." (BAKELESS:19) NCAROLINA FARMING
