John D. Shane interview with William Sudduth, ca. 1840s: Came to KY via Ohio and Limestone 1783. <Boone could write a good strong farmer's hand. Was deputy surveyor to Col. Thos. marshall, in 82, 3,4,5. And deputy under me, in 97. Made several surveys. Came to my house & staid all night several nights, and made out his plots, so that I know that he did it himself. Surveyed some 100,000 acres of land. Boone was in Logan's campaign of 1780. Had his family in a little cabin, just below Maysville. There was then but a 1/2 doz. families in Maysville.> 12CC63
