Daniel Boone was born on November 2, 1734, near Reading, Pennsylvania in a log cabin in Exeter Township.
Boone had barely any education but learned how to read and write from his mom, and his father taught him wilderness survival skills. He got a rifle when he was 12 years old and was proven to be a talented woodsman and hunter. Then shot his first bear.
In 1767, Daniel Boone led his own expedition for the first time. The hunting trip along the Big Sandy River in Kentucky worked its way westward as far as Floyd County.
In 1755, Boone left home on a military expedition that was part of the French and Indian War
In 1767, Boone wed Rebecca Bryan, and the couple set up stakes in the Yadkin Valley. Over 24-year period, the couple would have 10 children.
On September 26, 1820, Daniel Boone passed away due to natural causes
