Nathan Boone was the youngest child of Daniel Boone, the pioneer of the Kentucky frontier. In 1796, Nathan with his family moved to what is now the state of Missouri. During the War of 1812 he was a captain of a company of Missouri volunteers. In 1820, Nathan was elected as a delegate to the state constitutional convention. After his service to the state, he accepted a commission as a captain in the lst Regiment U.S. Dragoons. After entrance into the army, he spent much of his time on the border and in Indian territory of that period. He retired as a lieutenant-colonel after spending twenty years of service in the army. He died in 1857 on his farm in Missouri.

Nathan's son, John Colter Boone, is named after Nathan's good friend, John Colter; who was a Private on Lewis and Clark's 'Corps of Discovery' expedition. John was the only member of the expedition allowed to leave before the mission was complete. John is believed to be the first person of European descent to see Yellowstone and the Teton Mountain Range. He is also considered by many, the first 'mountain man', for his explorations during the winter of 1807-1808, after leaving the 'Corps of Discovery' expedition. He later settled in New Haven, Missouri. He died while serving under Nathan during the War of 1812.
