Statement of William Sudduth, 11/1840: <It is stated in McClung's History of the life of Col. Danl. Boone, that the Col. could neither read nor write. It is not so. Col. Boone acted as a deputy surveyor under Col. Thos. marshall, & returned many surveys, as the records of Fayette County will show. In 1797 I was appointed surveyor of Clarke County. Col. Boone took a deputation under me, & made several surveys. He made out his plats in my office, without any assistance. He wrote what would be called a common farmer's hand.> 12CC96
