Some Quotes From Daniel Boone I was happy in the midst of dangers and inconveniences. I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks. Nature was here a series of wonders, and a fund of delight. All you need for happiness is a good gun, a good horse, and a good wife. Curiosity is natural to the soul of man and interesting objects have a powerful influence on our affections.
The Death Daniel Boone died on September 26, 1820 at the age of 85 at his sons Nathan's home in St. Charles County, Missouri. In 1845 the remains of Boone and his wife were moved to Kentucky to rest in the great pioneer's "hunter's paradise."
