Daniel Boone (1734-1820), born near Reading, Pennsylvania, is known as a great pioneer and Indian fighter. His family left for North Carolina in 1750 and settled in Buffalo Lick the following year. Boone spent several years working for his father, a blacksmith and stock-raiser, and then in 1755 began his travels when he joined a North Carolina contingent in the Braddock campaign. Stories he heard from his companion, John Finley, filled him with desire for pioneering the Kentucky wilderness, but after a disastrous battle, he returned home and married Rebeccah Bryan, a neighbor. In 1767, Boone and a couple of men headed westward to explore. They returned home and that same year Finley happened by and Boone and Finley made new plans to head for Kentucky. They commenced their journey in 1769, set up camp at Station Camp Creek, and after many adventures returned home in 1771. From that point forward, Boone set out for the west on a regular basis, accompanying various parties and settlers on their journeys. He brought his family to settle in Kentucky in 1775, and was made a captain and then a major in the militia once the region became a county of Virginia. He battled the Indians, was captured by the Shawnee in 1778, but later escaped and continued to accompany new settlers into the area. Kentucky was divided into three counties the next year and Boone was made lieutenant-colonel of Fayette County and later chosen as a delegate to the legislature. Boone's skill as a pioneer far outweighed his ability to manage his affairs, for, although he had taken up many tracts of land, they had all been improperly entered and after a series of suits over a number of years, lost all of the land. He left Kentucky and settled in West Virginia, where he was appointed lieutenant-colonel of the county and later selected as its legislative delegate. Around 1789, he moved to Missouri to join his son, Daniel Morgan, where he was soon elected to public office. After Boone's wife died in 1813, he lived mostly at the home of his other son, Nathan. Boone is remembered as a great pioneer for having "the most qualities needed on the frontier—courage in a rare degree, great fortitude, an iron endurance, a mastery of woodcraft, and single expertness with the rifle.... He was loyal in friendship, honest, truthful, and modest.... He was one of the most respected and beloved of the nation's heroes...." (DAB).
