    Whenever the name Boone is mentioned, the public immediately thinks of the name “Daniel Boone”, and associates it with exploration of unknown territory by an early American frontiersman. However, Daniel was not the only Boone who helped push the American frontier from sea to shining sea. There seemed to be a natural proclivity for exploration in the Boone family. They were typically among the first to move into new regions in search of land, adventure, and personal freedom. This book traces the life of one of those “other” Boones, Hezekiah Boone, son of George Boone IV, and the cousin of Daniel Boone. In only two generations, Hezekiah and his son Mordecai Boone moved their families from Pennsylvania, through multiple locations in Virginia, to Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi, and finally to Texas, where many of their descendents remain. Affiliated family lines of Wigley, Burt, McGee, Adams, Lane, Altizer, McGregor, Gibbons, Bustinza, and Cavazos are also included.
