Notes

IN THE following notes, the first figure represents the page reference and the second the paragraph. An incomplete paragraph at the head of the page is counted as the first.

"Bogart," "Bruce," "Ellis," "Filson," "Flint," "Peck," and "Thwaites" refer to the biographies of Boone by those authors. Other abbreviations are: Bradford—John Bradford: Notes on Kentucky; Cal. Va. —Calender of Virginia State Papers; Collins—the 1878 edition of Lewis Collins: History of Kentucky; Ill. Hist. Coll. —Collections of the Illinois State Historical Library; H. Q. —History Quarterly of the Filson Club; Life—Draper's unpublished MS. life of Boone; Mich. —Michigan Pioneer Collection; Pion. Fam. —W. S. Bryan and Robert Rose: Pioneer Families of Missouri; Ranck—George W. Ranck: Boonesborough; Reg. — Register of the Kentucky State Historical Society; Va. Mag. —Virginia Magazine of History and Biography. The usual abbreviations for state names are used.

References to the Draper MSS. follow the system of numbering devised by Draper himself. Each series is indicated by a letter, "C" for Boone, "CC" for Kentucky, and so forth. A preceding numeral indicates the volume, a following number the MS. itself, a numeral in parenthesis the folio number in that MS. Thus 16 C 21 (1) indicates volume 16 of the Boone series, MS. No. 21, folio 1.

3.2. It is sometimes stated that George Boone, the elder, came from Bradninch, near Exeter. This was the home of his son, George Boone, the younger. Gwynedd Meeting records show clearly that the father came from Collumpton. Cf. Hazel Atterbury Spraker: Boone Family, p. 19; Draper MSS. 1 C 1, 1 C 49.

3.3. The exact relationship of the Bohuns and the Boones has never been established. No one doubts that it exists. See William Boone Douglass: "Ancestry and Boyhood of Daniel Boone," Kentucky School Journal, 13:13 S 1934; "Boone Records," Reg. 14 (No. 40): 17-35 (1916).

4.2. Draper MS. 22 C 14.

4.3. As George Boone, the younger, married the American-born Deborah Howell on September 27, 1713, he must have arrived in America very early in 1713 or even in 1712. James Boone, in Draper MS. 1 C 1, says he came "a few years before" his father. Quaker custom discourages hasty marriages. Cf. Spraker, op. cit., p. 27; Draper MS. 1 C 27.

5.4.Pennsylvania Archives, Ser. 2, XIX. 64, 644. Cf. Douglass, loc. cit.; Spraker, op. cit., p. 28; Morton L. Montgomery: History of Berks County (1886), p. 974.

6.1. Historical Society of Pennsylvania, Misc. MSS.; Penn-Physick MSS. IV 19; Peters MSS. IX 113 and III 1751; Penna. Misc. MSS. Penn and Baltimore, fol. 64; Penn MSS. Warrants & Surveys, fol. 94.
