    [In 1845 in a controversial move, the remains of Boone and his wife were relocated from Missouri to Kentucky. There is some controversy surrounding the final disposition of the Boones' remains. Some say Daniel and Rebecca's remains are still in Missouri, and that the wrong bodies were removed and re-buried. Others have demanded the return of the bodies to Missouri.]

  9. Source Needed.

    He was given this name when he was adopted by the Shawnee. Source needed. [Note: in source S3 Boone mentions that he was adopted but does not say by whom (some say Chief Blackfish) and does not give his given name, although the author fills that in at the unsourced footnotes. A direct source should be found if possible. user:cthrnvl ]
