Daniel Boone

Daniel Boone


Daniel Boone was born on November 2, 1734, in Berks County, Pennsylvania. At an early age, Boone became a skilled hunter and outdoorsman. In 1755, he join Edward Braddock in his ill-fated attempt to rout the French from Fort Duquesne (present day Pittsburgh). Later he would settle in Kentucky and in 1799 to Missouri.

There, he blazed the Boone's Lick Trail from St. Charles to Franklin, Missouri. The route was later improved by his sons Nathan Boone and Daniel M. Boone. The Boone's Lick Trail was the predecessor trail of Route 40 in eastern Missouri.

Daniel Boone died on September 26, 1820, at the home of his son Nathan, near Defiance, Missouri.
