John Bakeless, DANIEL BOONE (New York: W. Morrow & Co., 1939)

Missouri Lands
<Boone had brought so many other settlers with him that the Spanish officials made no effort to assign the lands themselves, especially as the Kentuckians chose the land farthest west, on the wildest frontier, westward, toward the unknown. They left the details to Senor Boone. He had a list of the people actually with him, and alloted to them the grants which the Spanish officials had made out in blank and given him to distribute. These were about four hundred acres each, with allowance for children and dependents. The actual choice of land sites was also left to Senor Boone, and he continued for some years to assign lands to newcomers.>BAKELESS:36
