Last Years
John D. Shane interview with John Steele, Bourbon county KY, n.d.: <I was out on the Missouri river in 1810, at the mouth of Shuratangh [?] Creek, about 50 miles above the Mississippi river, trading. Met Boone. His friends didn't wish him to hunt, and had refused to accompany him any more. He went out hunting, and some persons told him of a party of indians, encamped not far off, who intended to kill him. He got on his horse, and went with his negro man, till he came to the neighborhood of the encampment, and then left him [the negro man] behind, and came close enough to spy the indians. He concluded that it was true, what had been told him, and returned home. He never went out any more. I bought of him the last beaver he ever caught: a very fine one.> 16CC297
