Daniel Boone and the Settlement of Kentucky
Today’s General Land Office (GLO) record of the week features Daniel Boone. Most of Daniel Boone's life was spent in Kentucky and Tennessee, both non Public Land Survey System (PLSS) states. However, he did spend his last days in Missouri. Our GLO record this week is of the survey of Township 45 North, Range 2 East, 5th PM in Missouri. The plat here depicts the land grant issued to Daniel Boone. Learn more with our story map.
