In an excerpt from a letter to Lyman Draper in Aug 1858 by Enoch M. Boone (son of Squire Boone Jr. & a nephew of Daniel Boone):"Jonathan BOONE – came early to Kentucky – remembers him at Squire Boone’s Station as early as 1783, and tended Squire Boone’s Mill. After a few years settled on Green River and after living there several years then settled at the Big Falls of the Wabash (near Mt. Carmel, Wabash Co) on the Illinois side, not more than 15 miles if that, above the mouth of the Wabash where he built a mill. There he died about 1808 – don’t know where his wife died, or how old he was. Left several daughters … and three sons, John, Joseph and Daniel."SOURCE: The Boone Society,
