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

Missouri Lands
DB, Nathan, DMB, Squire all lost lands because of the decisions of the Commissioners. <It was not, however, so tragic as it sounds. There was still a good deal of land in the family.> Isaac Van Bibber [Bakeless calls him DB's "adopted son"] got 400, DMB 600, Squire 700, Flanders Callaway 800. <For the most part the land they lost was simply land that they had not needed enough even to cultivate.> As far as DB was concerned <though his land formally reverted to the Federal Government, no one else had the effrontery to claim it.> BAKELESS:378-379
