Daniel Boone's Descendants

There are many pages on the web highlighting Daniel Boone's descendants.  On this page I would like to highlight what very few have shown . . . the lost link to my family.   This has been an ever evolving 7 year search that started with just some old stories of family members long gone.   Since both my ggg grandparents, Susan (Susannah) Boone and Joseph Van Bibber, died at an early age, their children, Sarah, Letitia, and Joseph Van Bibber were raised by Nathan and Olive Boone.  Beyond that I'm not sure about their lives . . . how they lived and how they died. This is my ongoing search for their forgotten story.  Craig Cooper Snyder
