The Boone Society now offers a DNA test to help you prove descent from Daniel, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal. But it was the final graf in today's article that interested me most.
"The highly popular but historically inaccurate TV series 'Daniel Boone' (1964-70) gave new life to an old legend," [Kentucky State Parks historian Ron] Bryant said. "No, Daniel Boone never wore a coonskin cap, nor did he kill great numbers of Indians … he said maybe three that he knew of, but he hated the thought of shedding human blood. He was not the tall, muscular pioneer of fiction, but rather a slightly built man of about 5 feet 8 inches, who tended to put on weight in old age." [Link]More disillusionment here.
