Me and Daniel Boone
My whole life I’ve been told that somehow I’m related to Daniel Boone through my mother’s family. My mother wasn’t sure what the connection was but that we were related to him. I got some information from a first cousin of my mother and in the summer of 2011 I went to the National Records Archive in Riverside, CA to see what I could find. I explained all this to a professional genealogist who works there and her response was “Don’t necessary count on these family stories. I’ve heard this so many times, and a lot of people are disappointed to find that no they are not related to a famous person in history.” Well, I didn’t let this descourage me from looking into my family history and sure enough I am a direct decasandant of Daniel Boone!!
