Boone, Rebecca Bryan
Rebecca Boone: "Except that she was a rather tall brunette, nobody knows now [what she looked like], because then it was not thought of enough importance to record." Married at 17; lived with DB until she died at 73; lived alone for two years during his captivity; raised 9 children (lost one at birth), buried 2 killed by Indians. "Quite an ordinary girl. Quite an ordinary woman. There were a lot like that in the backwoods. It has been, on the whole, a good thing for these United States." (BAKELESS:29, 30) REBECCAB WOMEN
