The Boone-Bryan History (Paperback)
This historical account concerns the deeds of the most notable members of the Boone and Bryan families, who trace their lineage back to the Medieval-era, later becoming distinguished colonists of New England.
The most notable person in this history is Daniel Boone, an explorer who led expeditions westward into Kentucky, founding the first colonial settlement there. He would later serve in the military in the American War of Independence. Rather than focus on Daniel's deeds and achievements, this account seeks to establish the family tree of both the Boone and Bryan families. The lives of various relations, their place of living, and the trades which they practiced, are listed.
We learn that the two families' history is shared even going back to the Middle Ages, both clans being Irish with lineages stretching back into the Medieval era of the kings. A history of the Bryans who lived in these far-gone times is also told, showing us how the name was passed down until the time of the migrations to North America commenced in the 17th century.
