Comments of Nathaniel Hart [Jr.] to John D. Shane: <I was personally acquainted with him [DB]. He has given the best account of himself. He lived in North Carolina, near the Red-House in Casewell County [sic]. It is disputed whether he was a Virginian. Some say he was a Pennsylvanian. When he returned from this country, on his first trip, his wife met him weeping. Supposing that he was dead, she had become pregnant. To which he made some such reply as that the race would be continued. She continued, that it was by his brother. "So much the better," says he, "its all in the family." Boone's daughter (Susy Boone) [was] a notorious prostitute. Said every Kentuckian ought to try her gait, since she was the first white woman in Ky.> 17CC195
