Biography of Daniel Morgan Boone, 1769 - 1839. Pioneer.
Two days before Christmas 1769 Daniel Morgan Boone was born. He was the third son of that legendary frontiersman, Daniel Boone of Kentucky. Young Daniel resembled his illustrious father, "a square little man with blue eyes and yellow hair, and a v oice like a woman's." The benign appearance of both belied their rugged frontier exploits.
As early as 1787, the sturdy 18-year-old son came to mid-Missouri. Here he hunted and trapped beaver along the Big Blue River.
Daniel Morgan Boone's early education in Kentucky was as a surveyor. But his lifetime of trekking, trapping, hunting and exploring was intermingled with surveying, stone masonry and farming.
After serving in the war against England, the adventure-some Boone, his brother Nathan, his sister Susannah and their growing families all headed west. In 1817 they were among the earliest settlers to come by wagon to Jackson County.
The Boones and their numerous offspring settled in Westport Township. Daniel Morgan's 1831 tract of 240 acres lay adjacent to 63rd Street east of the Paseo.
He died on June 13, 1839 at age 69 having trekked the frontier, and sired a dozen children. Following custom, Boone was buried on the home place in the Boone-Hays cemetery near today's 63rd and Brooklyn Avenue.
Among the myriad and confusing Boone descendents was a son, Morgan, whose 1842 three-room log cabin with fireplace of "sawn stone" has been preserved by the Kansas City Museum. And a nephew, Albert Gallatin Boone, operated an outfitting store in t he 1850's at 500 Westport Road in the building now known as Kelly's Tavern.
