about 1782, Peter Scholl (b. 15 Sept., 1754; d. 11 Sept., 1821, in Clark Co., Ky.), a native of the
Shenandoah Valley, and a son of William Scholl and wife Leah Morgan. Their son John gave
the following information to Dr. Draper in 1868: "Peter Scholl, a native of the Shenandoah Valley,
died on waters of Stoner, Clark Co., Ky., Sept. 11, 1821. He was born probably about 1754. In
about 1782 married Mary Boone, daughter of Edward Boone (bro. of Col. Daniel Boone), she
perhaps about eighteen at that time and he about ten years her senior. Hence Peter Scholl when
he died was about 67 years old. Mrs. Mary Scholl died at same place Sept. 28, 1825. Peter Scholl
was in Blue Lick Battle."

Chapter 101: "Peter Scholl was a son of William Scholl and Leah Morgan... born in the Shenandoah
Valley of Virginia September 15, 1754. In 1779, when Peter was 25, the Scholl family journeyed out
to Boonesborough on the Kentucky river, under the guidance of Daniel Boone. In the party traveled
Edward Boone and his family, with 22 pack horses, besides those the family rode. Abraham Lincoln,
grandfather of the President, also went out to Kentucky with this party. With Edward Boone and his
wife on the journey were their six children... Mary Boone, Charity's sister, was then about 15. On the wild
Wilderness Road, cut by Boone in 1779, Peter Scholl and young Mary Boone came to care for one
another and in Boone's Station in Kentucky in 1782 they were married, the groom being then 28 and
the bride 18... Peter Scholl and Mary Boone had 14 children, namely, William, Martha, John, Lydia Ann,
Joseph, Dudley, Malinda, Jesse Bryan, Peter Morgan, Edward Boone, Dudley (the second), Mary,
Louisa and Charity Scholl. Of these 14 children, 13 grew to maturity. The first Dudley died in infancy."
