A lovely e-mail received from our American friends:
We are the descendants of Squire Boone and Squire junior, brother of the famous Daniel. We recently had the pleasure of meeting you and others of your congregation when we visited St Disen’s Church. I decided to send the photo as a thank you for your wonderful hospitality. St Disen’s was on my list of places to visit for many years and it was lovelier than I ever imagined, thanks to you good folks!
Later, we were invited to attend the dedication of the Squire Boone (junior) statue in Shelbyville, Ky. Squire founded the first settlement in the area in 1776 and named it Painted Stone. According to the people of Shelbyville, Daniel wouldn’t have lived so long if it wasn’t for his younger brother, Squire (my 5th great-grandfather) as he saved his life at least three times!
It was wonderful having made both those excursions in the same year. Thank you again for your warm reception. We hope to return someday.
Blessings to you all, Lori. Seattle, Wa. USA
