    Nathan Boone, the youngest child of Daniel Boone, came to Missouri in 1800. He married Olive Vanbibber, a sister of Jesse Boone's wife, and they had thirteen children, viz : James, Howard, John, Delinda, Malinda, Mary, Susan, Nancy, Jemima, Lavinia, Olive, Melcina, and Mahaley.

    Nathan Boone was also a surveyor, and made a number of government surveys. At the commencement of the Indian war of 1812-1815 he raised a company of rangers, and received his commission as Captain from President Madison in March, 1812. In August, 1833, he was commissioned Captain of dragoons by President Jackson, and during President Polk's administration he was promoted to Major of dragoons. In 1850 he was again promoted, and received his commission as Lieutenant-Colonel of dragoons from President Fillmore. He died October 16, 1856, in his 76th year; and his wife died November 12, 1858, in her 75th year.
