Draper Manuscripts: Daniel Boone Papers, 1760-1911, Series CC, Wisconsin Historical Society (Madison, Wisconsin)

John D. Shane interview with Marcus Richardson, ca. 1840s: With several other men came down the Ohio in ca. 1793, stopped at Limestone. <Squire [Jacob] Boone, brother [cousin] of Col. D.B. had a 2 story log-house at Limestone then, & we went up to his house, to see if we could get lodging. When we got there, it was a little in the night, and Boon was in bed. We knocked at the door, & a negro woman came. We asked for her master, & she showed us up stairs to his room. We told him we wanted lodging; didn't expect to get a bed to sleep in, were prepared to lodge on the floor, and asked privilege. This he granted, but we were to sweep it up in the morning. Some of the company impertinately enquired if it was clean then. At this he bid us be gone, for rascals & rogues, that we shouldn't sleep there: & we had to hunt lodgings afresh, which with much difficulty, after dividing into 2 companys both parties got. I only saw Boon next morning; didn't speak to him.> 12CC155
