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

Femme Osage, Missouri
Unidentified newspaper clipping: <In June of 1805 I crossed the Mississippi river, and directed my course to St. Charles, on the Missouri; from thence to the Femizash [Femme Osage] river, and explored the country to the extremity of the settlement, in order to obtain a correct knowledge of its situation, that I might correctly report it to the ensuing conference. In my route I preached at a number of places, and to very attentive hearers, thoush perhaps their attention was owing entirely to curiosity, as I was the first Methodist preacher that had then visited that country, and perhaps the first some of them ever heard. I had especially a fine congregation at Mr. Callinay's [Flanders Callaway's], on the Femizash [Femme Osage] river, who was a son-in-law to Daniel Boon, the famous pioneer, whom I had the pleasure of seeing. Mr Callinay [Callaway] was a member of the Baptist church, and I believe a worthy man.> 26CC39
