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

John D. Shane interview with Col. Francis Flournoy Jackson, ca. 1858-59: In 1801 he went <out to look at the country in Mo., with the view of removing there. Was at Danl Boone's house out in Mo. and staid with him all night during this trip. I recollect to see him strip off and go to bed. He had a fair skin, a Roman nose, rather high cheek bones, rather reddish tinge. The fairest skin, for his amount of exposure, of any man you ever saw. [Shane comment: I showed Col. Jackson my portrait of Boone {which would this be?}. He thought it good, except that Boo's gun was too long, and his legs. Made him look too tall?] Boone was not far from that neighbourhood on the Mo. in which I was expecting to be, he & the Calloways.> <Boone lived at "Boone's Bottom" on the Mo. He had a son, Nathan, as good a woo15dsman as D.B. Could travel as well in a cloudy day, as a clear day. Government gave them land there.> Was able to call on Boone hospitality because his wife was a granddaughter of James Bryan. 15CC7-8
