The first letter was received on January 31, 1931 and was a sent with "Boone Family" and "The New Boone History," leaflets written and printed by Dr. Mayfield. The second letter is dated February 4, 1931 and was sent with a Photostat copy of the June 28, 1785 payroll report by Captain Sam Kirkham for the men of the Lincoln Militia for their 32 day service on an expedition against the Indians in Ohio under General George Rogers Clark in the fall of 1782.

Biographical or historical data
The American Boone descendants of George Boone I began when his son George Boone II (1866-1744) and his wife, Mary Mogridge (or Maugridge) Boone, arrived with their family from England in 1717. They had nine children that grew to adulthood, including sons George IV (1690-1753) and Squire (1696-1765). George IV was the father of Josiah Noah Boone (1726-1814) and Squire was the father of Daniel Boone (1734-1820), the legendary frontiersman and folk hero. Josiah had ten children, including sons Josiah Noah (1758-1825) and Jeremiah (1760-1832). A "Josiah Boon" and a "Jeremiah Boon" are listed as having served in the Lincoln County Militia during the Revolutionary War as part of a 32 day expedition against the Indians under General George Rogers Clark in the fall of 1782. Jeremiah was the father of several children and his daughter Charlotte (1794-1883) married Reuben Mayfield (1792-1861) in 1814. Their son Alexander Campbell was the father of Reuben Newton Mayfield (1859-1939) the author of several Boone family histories and the donor of this collection.Sources:Information found within collection.
