Over time the Boone family and later owners expanded and remodeled the home. Colonel Bledsoe moved to Greenfield infollowing his brother's, Isaac, in Louis where they could get a decent price for their beaver pelts. Like most woodsmen of his day and ours, Boone was fond of singing, in his rude way, as well as of relating tales of stirring adventure. Undeterred, Boone and Stuart continued hunting in the region. Thanks to Filson's book, in Europe, Boone became a symbol of the "natural man" who lives a virtuous, uncomplicated existence in the wilderness.

We proceeded with all possible expedition until we came within fifteen miles of where Boonesborough now stands, and where we were fired upon by a party of Indians that killed two and wounded two of our number; yet, although surprised and taken at a disadvantage, we stood our ground. Though we defended ourselves, and repulsed the enemy, yet this unhappy affair scattered our cattle, brought us into extreme difficulty, and so discouraged the whole company that we retreated forty miles, to the settlement on Clinch river.

Daniel Boone spent his early years on what was then the edge of the frontier. Boone pursued this strategy so convincingly that many of his men concluded that he had switched his loyalty to the British. Native Americans who were unhappy about the loss of Kentucky in treaties saw the war as a chance to drive out the colonists. Following the Treaty of Fort Stanwix, American Indians in the region had been debating what to do about the influx of settlers. During the evenings around the campfire the book was read aloud as entertainment. Boone died in and was buried next to her grave.
