Collection Overview

Scope and Content
This collection consists of a treasury warrant, surveys, maps, deeds, and a note. Four of the documents relate to a land transaction in which Daniel Boone was involved. The land in question was in Fayette County, Virginia (later Kentucky). Boone received a treasury warrant no. 1243 from Virginia in 1780, for one thousand acres of land. Surveys in the collection document the land that he chose to patent; the patents are written on the back of these documents. In addition to the surveys, there is a letter written to Waller Overton by Boone on July 24, 1786. The letter requests another copy of the survey because of a boundary dispute. Two items in the colection relate to the Boone family. In the first document, Hezikiah Boone entered 1200 acres of land into the land record on Oct. 12, 1798. The second item is a note written by T. L. Toler discussing a paper given to him by William Boone in 1820. This was also a land dispute. This paper is included in the collection.
