p509-510: "Rebecca Bryan, b. 7 Feb., 1739; d. 18 Mar., 1813; m. 1765, Daniel Boone (Squire; George),
b. 1734; d. 26 Sept., 1820, aged 87. They settled within about four miles of William Bryan on Sugartree
Creek, where they lived until the growth of their family and the scarcity of game caused them to move
to the head of the Yadkin and later into Ky."

pp3-8: "Life of Daniel Boone"
"When Daniel was about eighteen, his father moved his family to North Carolina, and settled on the
Yadkin river, in the north-western part of the State, about eight miles from Wilkesboro. Here game
was abundant... He was often accompanied on his hunting expeditions by one or more of the sons of
Mr. William Bryan, a well-to-do farmer who lived near his father's... But it was not farmer Bryan's sons,
alone, that drew Daniel Boone so often to the house. There were other attractions there in the bright
eyes of a daughter named Rebecca, and it soon became whispered about that Daniel was courting
her. These whisperings were at length confirmed by the announcement of the approaching wedding...
Nine children resulted from this marriage, viz.: James, Israel,. Susanna, Jemima, Lavinia, Daniel M.,
Rebecca, Jesse, and Nathan... On the 18th of March, 1813, Colonel Boone experienced the saddest
affliction of his life, in the death of his aged and beloved wife."
