        1788 DANIEL BOONE + REBECCA BOONE (Wife) Signed FLEMINGS CREEK Land Sale Deed

        Est: $15,000 - $20,000

        Autographs "Daniel Boone" & "Rabaca Boone" Signed Land Sale Deed for "Flemings Creek... part of a tract of Four Thousand Acres Entered in the name of Thomas Lagwood and Assigned to Daniel Boone." at Bourbon County, Virginia DANIEL BOONE (1734-1820) & REBECCA BOONE (His Wife, 1739-1813). American Pioneer, Explorer, a Woodsman, and a Frontiersman, whose frontier exploits made him one of the First Folk Heroes of the United States. Rebecca Ann (Bryan) Boone was an American Pioneer and the wife of famed Frontiersman Daniel Boone. August 19, 1788-Dated, Partially-Printed Document Signed, "Daniel Boone" and "Rabaca Boone" as "His Wife," Land Sale Indenture Deed, Bourbon County, Virginia, Very Fine. "Daniel Boone & Rabaca Boone" as "his Wife" are named TEN (10) Separate times throughout the text of this formal legal Land Document, each time fully and clearly written in rich brown ink. This exceptional original Document is impressive, 1 page, measuring 16" x 13", tall folio, being boldly printed in deep black text upon laid period paper. It has expected folds and some modest centerfold separation at the right outer edge where it was most exposed and along a fold through both signatures at right. Two original red wax seals are still present at bottom right along side of the two primary signatures, "Daniel Boone" and "Rabaca Boone" which are boldly written in rich brown. This Indenture Document transfers ownership to a John Ludert for a parcel of land in Bourbon County, Virginia: "Flemings Creek. Beginning at the Sycamore and Cherry Tree corner to Peter Schmeltzers tract of Six Hundred acres, thence West One Hundred and Seventy Eight poles, to a stake thence North One Hundred and Seventy Eight poles to a hiccory (sic) and Sugar tree, thence East... part of a tract of Four Thousand Acres Entered in the name of Thomas Lagwood and Assigned to Daniel Boone." There is a handwritten statement upon the blank reverse side which reads, in full: "At a Court held for Bourbon county at the Court house on Tuesday the Sixteenth day of September 1788 --- This Indenture of Bargain & Sale from Daniel Boone & Rebecca his Wife to John Ludert was acknowledged by said Daniel & Rebecca his Wife, she being privily examinded as the law directs & having & languished her Right of Dower therein was ordered to be recorded. --- Test.(imony) John Edwards, Clk (Clerk)." Docket written upon the middle outer reverse side panel notes the sale and the official court recording of this Deed. Daniel Boone held many government offices, including Leutenant Colonel of Fayette County, legislative representative, and sheriff. In 1786 he moved to Maysville, Kentucky, and was elected to the legislature. Bad luck continued to follow him, however; he lost his land because of a mistake made in the records. In 1788 he abandoned Kentucky and moved to Point Pleasant, in what is now West Virginia. He was appointed Lieutenant Colonel of Kanawha County in 1789 and its legislative delegate in 1791. Boone and his family later moved west to Spain's Alta Luisiana (or Upper Louisiana, now Missouri). When asked why he had left Kentucky, he answered, "Too many people! Too crowded, too crowded! I want some elbow room." What he really wanted was to settle on land that would not be taken away from him later. This historic "Daniel Boone" and "Rabaca Boone" Signed Land Sale Deed has nice overall eye appeal and is excellent for display. The top margin is nicely indented, the body of the printed text is well centered with four full wide original margins. The final signatures are perfectly clear and each measure about 2.25" long, being next to their official red wax signature seals. The finest quality "Daniel Boone" signed Document we have offered, and having the added bonus of the excellent signature of his wife "Rabaca Boone"! Rebecca and Daniel began their courtship in 1753 and married three years later. Rebecca married Daniel Boone in a triple wedding on August 14, 1756, in Yadkin River, North Carolina at the age of 17. She took in her new husband's two young orphan nephews, Jesse and Jonathan who lived with them in North Carolina until the family left for Kentucky in 1773. Like her mother and mother-in-law before her, Rebecca had many children born two or three years apart. Over twenty-five years time, she delivered six sons and four daughters of her own In 1799, Daniel and Rebecca followed Nathan to Spain's Alta Luisiana (Upper Louisiana, now Missouri, about 45 miles west of St. Louis) in the Femme Osage valley. Daniel acquired 850 acres and was appointed Commandant and Syndic, district magistrate by the Spanish government. In 1803 with the Louisiana Purchase, they lost the rights to their lands but with the direct intercession of Congress in 1814 some parts of his acreage were restored. After a brief illness, Rebecca Boone died at the age of 74 on March 18, 1813, at her daughter Jemima Boone Callaway's home near the village of Charette (near present-day Marthasville, Missouri). She was buried at the Bryan family cemetery nearby overlooking the Missouri River. She and her husband's remains were reinterred and buried again in Frankfort, Kentucky in 1845.

        BOONE, Daniel (1734-1820), Frontiersman. Autograph letter signed ("Daniel Boone"), to James Minor, 19 September 1784. 1 page, 8vo, seal hole repaired, tipped to another sheet. A RARE DANIEL BOONE LETTER TO A PROSPECTIVE KENTUCKY SETTLER. Boone, with his distinctive spelling, discusses the surveying of some Kentucky land: "Mr Smith has Wated on me several times to survay your land but onavoidable accedents hath prevent it. But it will be dun in a few weeks from now but your land is out of any dispute and is very good and lyes a bout 20 miles from Boons borough between the Cantuck and Licking. I hope you will rest assured the bisness shall be dun as Mr Smith is allways redy to attend." After Boone's tumultuous experiences fighting the Shawnee--who briefly held him captive--he settled down to the life as a surveyor's assistant, merchant, landowner, and recruiter to bring settlers west from the seaboard States. He would often report--as he does here--about the quality and title of the land that easterners were interested in acquiring. This same year, 1784, also saw the publication of John Filson's, The Discovery, Settlement, and Present State of Kentucke (1784), a work written by one of Boone's friends, and which made him famous. Filson mixed the dramatic facts of Boone's life (Braddock's expedition to Ft. Duquesne, Indian fighting) with tall tales of Boone supposedly besting a bear in hand-to-hand combat and the like. It made him a global celebrity. Boone--the man and the myth--"exemplified the American way of life, the ideal of frontier independence and virtue" (Michael A. Lofaro, Dictionary of American Biography). BOONE LETTERS ARE SCARCE. Only four have appeared at auction since 1970.

        Est: $10,000 - $12,000

        Storied American frontiersman, soldier, and politician (1734-1820) whose varied exploits made him one of the young nation's first folk heroes. Very rare ADS, one page, 8 x 3.25, October 31, 1787. Handwritten promissory note reads, in full: "I promise to pay to the Governor or order the sum of 25 pounds for a bote [sic] rec'd of Capt. John Juitt." Signed at the conclusion by Boone. Attractively double cloth matted and framed with a portrait of Boone and a small plaque to an overall size of 17.5 x 21.75. Intersecting folds, one through a single letter of signature, a couple trivial edge chips and tears, and a bit of scattered light toning, otherwise fine condition.In 1787, Boone lived in Maysville, Kentucky, where he was a tavern keeper, surveyor, land speculator, and recently-elected member of the Virginia State Assembly. He was prosperous, owning seven slaves and 100,000 acres of land at the time of this document. This promissory note was most likely for the keelboat Boone purchased for a business venture he would conduct the following year. In the spring of 1788, he loaded a large shipment of 12 tons of ginseng on the vessel and set out for Philadelphia where it was to be shipped to China. The boat was damaged on the way and much of the ginseng ruined, resulting in a financial loss for Boone. An extremely scarce signed document, as rare as it is desirable.

        Autograph - Daniel Boone

        Est: $15,000 - $20,000

        Storied American frontiersman, soldier, and politician (1734-1820) whose varied exploits made him one of the young nation's first folk heroes. After earning a youthful reputation as a hunter of exceptional skill, Boone served with the British military during the French and Indian War. After pioneering a settlement in present-day Kentucky, Boone was captured and "adopted" by a Shawnee tribe during the Revolutionary War. After his escape, he continued to fight with the Continental Army and was promoted to the rank of lieutenant colonel in 1780. In the following year he was elected as a representative to the Virginia General Assembly, commencing a long and distinguished political career. After fighting in some of the last major campaigns of the war, Boone continued his work as a legislator, surveyor, businessman, and land speculator. Ever enticed by a sense of adventure and wanderlust, Boone moved his family several times, eventually settling in then-sparsely populated Missouri, where he served as a syndic (a judge/jury in the Spanish-controlled territory) and military commandant and indulged his passion for hunting and trapping. With his final words, 'I'm going now. My time has come,' Boone died at the age of 85. Rare manuscript DS, signed "Daniel Boone, D[eputy] S[urveyor]," one page, 12.25 x 14.5, June 18, 1784. Land survey for 50,000 acres of land for Philip and James Moor and John Donnaldson. The document begins, "Lincoln County, State of Virginia Survey'd for Philip and James Moor and John Donnaldson 50,000 Acres of Land on Nine Treasury Warrants...Enter'd the 5th June 1784. Beginning one Mile from the Mouth of Lawtons [Sexton] Creek at A at which mouth there is a large high Rock in Goose Creek where Lawtons Creek Empties, and at which Beginning there is three poplars and two Sugar Trees...." The upper right portion bears a 7 x 4 sketch of the area surveyed. Point A, known today as Boone's Rock, is identified on the survey drawing as "Beging A." At the bottom of the document, William Brooks and Septemus Davis are listed as "Chain-Men" and "Edmond Callaway, Marker." Double matted and framed with an engraved portrait of Boone, to an overall size of 24.5 x 20.5. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, one through a single letter of signature, scattered toning and creasing, and possibly some professional repairs and reinforcement to folds on reverse.Boone surveyed this parcel of land for these early settlers in his capacity as deputy surveyor of Lincoln County. During the process, he carved his initials into a large boulder at the mouth of Sexton's Creek-identified here as "Beging A"-to identify his starting point in these surveys. This rock-near where he had his favorite campsite-is still there. However, due to changes in the course of the stream over time, the initials are under water and cannot be seen. This very survey is referenced on various occasions by Kentucky's Owsley County Historical Society. A very rare and interesting part of frontier history. Oversized.

        DANIEL BOONE (1734-1820). American frontiersman, folk hero, and central figure in the settlement of Kentucky.

Boone was a commanding officer in this engagement against the Indians and British. Land survey for his brother Jonathan Boone (1730-1808). ADS, 1p, 9"x61/2", [Limestone, KY], May 15, 1785.

        BOONE, Daniel (1734-1820), frontiersman. Autograph document signed ("Daniel Boone") and with his name in the text in three additional places, n.p. [Kentucky], 3 May 1786. 1 page, folio, minor fraying to top margin and one lower corner, neatly mended, docketed on verso "Boone's bond to Hone." DANIEL BOONE'S BOND: TO BE CANCELLED FOR 300 ACRES OF FRONTIER LAND. A transaction which is typical of the active speculation in land which took place in frontier Kentucky. Boone had settled at Maysville, near Limestone on the Ohio River, in 1783, where he kept a tavern and was active as a surveyor. Here, he writes: "...I Daniel Boone of the County of fayette and state of virginia am held and firmly bound to James hone of North Carolina...for [150] pounds lawfull money of Virginia..." Below, Boone adds: "The condition of the above obligation is such that if...Daniel Boone" furnishes to Hone "a good and lawfull Deed" to 300 acres of land "out of a Survay [sic] of 4000 acres made for said Daniel Boone between the North fork of Licking and flemings Crick within 12 or 14 Miles of Limestone," the obligation is to be voided." Two men, William Hayes and Septimus Davis, sign as witnesses. Boone (1734-1820) had settled in the future Kentucky wilderness as early as 1769 and led a considerable number of settlers into the area. When the territory was organized in 1776 he was appointed a captain of militia and was eventually promoted to major. After the war, Boone was named lieutenant-colonel of Fayette County, served as a delegate to the legislature, and, in 1782, was chosen sheriff and deputy surveyor. Just two years earlier, John Filson had published The Adventures of Col. Daniel Boon, which did much to crystallize Boone's stature as an authentic folk here.

        Autograph ms fragment, Daniel Boone

        Est: $2,500 - $3,500

        BOONE, DANIEL. 1734-1820. Autograph Manuscript, fragment, 1p, 4 by 8 inches, n.p., [1784], being a list of expenses occurred in surveying a plot of land belonging to Isaac Winston, on the verso of an agreement to do the same, document laid down to sheet bearing inscription and signature of Lyman C. Draper authenticating the Boone handwriting, some creasing, toning, soiling, staining, mounting remnant to left margin of verso. The agreement on the reverse of the Boone inscription explains this document: "Received of Waller Oviston February 27th 1784 two land warrants the property of Isaac Winston of Hanover County (Virginia) Containing Eleven thousand Eight Hundred & Seventy five Acres which I, Daniel Boon [sic] of Fayette County & state aforesaid do oblige myself to locate Survey & patent on the aforesaid Winston's Paying all the Expence In Witness Hereoff I have hereunto Set my Hand & Seal the date above written." The signature, however, is clipped. On the reverse, however, Boone's handwritten invoice is preserved: "The Exspences of the Within Land of Mr. Winstons Survay 9 3 8 / [?] fees 7 14 0 / provistion 26.17.8." Most likely the original signature on this document was clipped by family members for one autograph seeker, and the invoice was sent to another. The inscription by Lyman Draper seems to support this theory: "I certify that the preceding fragment is in the hand writing of Col. Danl Boone-well known to me to be such--& obtained in 1851 from Col. Nathan Boone of Missouri, til then last surviving child of Dl Boone, since decd. / Lyman C. Draper / Corr. Sec. Wis. Hist.
