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

Femme Osage, Missouri
<Not long after his arrival in Missouri, Boone had renewed his acquaintance with his old Shawnee enemies, an acquaintance which ever afterward was friendly. He ran into a Shawnee hunting camp on a deer-hunt in 1801. Two or three surviving Indians remembered the days when Sheltowee lived among them as a fellow tribesman. He met once more Jimmy Rogers, for whom he had stocked a rifle in 1778, the man who had told the Shawnees that Sheltowee would get safely back to Boonesborough. Joseph Jackson, who had been one of the captured salt-makers in 1778, now a Shawnee warrior named Fish, was back with his adopted brothers once more after a brief return to white civilization in 1799. Boone paid at least one visit to the permanent camp of the Shawnees northwest of St. Louis. One of his granddaughters, on a later occasion at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, was surprised by the friendliness of an old squaw. She was one of Blackfish's daughters, adopted sister of Daniel Boone!> BAKELESS:371
