|The following text was written by my mom for a high school class paper on her family genealogy. She interviewed her Uncle Jack (William D. "Jack" Woodward), brother to her grandmother, Martha Ann (Woodward) Brown. This is the text that got me excited in my early years of life, thus beginning my search for my family story.|

My Ancestors [by E. June Brown Snyder]
In 1775 Daniel Boone cut a wagon path from
Cumberland Gap to Boonesboro in Kentucky.

My father's mother's mother, whose name
was Sarah Boone [this reference to "Boone"
really confused me in my search for my line to Daniel Boone because Sarah's
last name was actually "Van Bibber" . . . I believe she was
referred to as Sarah "Boone" by my great uncle since her parents
died when she was young and she was raised by her grandparents, Nathan
and Olive Boone], was Nathan Boone's grand-daughter. My grandmother
was born in Ash Grove, Missouri, where my grand father was also born in
[the following are rough notes from mom's paper]
4 great Grandfather to me [E. June Brown]
My Father's Mother's
Nathan Boone was my Grandmother's (on my Father's side) Great-Grandfather and Daniel Boone was Nathan Boone's (his youngest son) Father.
Daniel Boone moved from Kentucky to Missouri
in 1799 and went to abut the center of the state. The town of Boonesville
there is named after him. His youngest son Nathan moved to southwest
Missouri (Ozark Country) in 1822 or 1823. [it
was actually 1837]
My Grandmother was born in Missouri (at the homestead in Ash Grove) and my Father was born in Missouri and they moved west (1889) when he was still a baby. (To Johnson, Washington) to Pullman, then, in 1892, they moved to Kendrick, Idaho.
John Brown's Dad was killed by the Indians [looks as though he was more likely "bushwacked" in 1863 by Union soldiers, , but could have been Confederate Soldiers during the Civil War]
More about Grand Dad (about the Garage) in the paper in Mom's scrapbook. [we can't find this scrapbook ... most likely thrown away]
