Daniel Boone, the great explorer and settler of the western frontier in the late 1700s, was not connected to the Restoration Movement in any official way. However, his life and influence was greatly felt among brethren throughout Kentucky both personally and by way of his family. His sister, Hannah Boone, was converted under the teachings of the Mulkeys in Tomkinsville, Kentucky. She is buried in the cemetery at the Mulkey Meetinghouse at Tomkinsville, Kentucky. His grandson, Isaiah Boone Grubbs, was an evangelist and educator living for many years in Lexington, Kentucky. He was a long-time professor in the College of the Bible with friends, J.W. McGarvey & Charles Louis Loos. Grubb's daughter, Daniel Boone's 4x great granddaughter, was Lula Klingman, the wife of evangelist and educator George A. Klingman.
It was at his beckoning call that people east of the Appalachian Mountains moved west and settled in the woods of what he called "Cane-tuck." Cane Ridge, near Paris, Kentucky, was discovered and named by Daniel Boone. This was the location of the great Kentucky Revival in August of 1801. The beautiful setting of his grave in the Frankfort Cemetery is one of the most picturesque views in Kentucky. In the same cemetery are the graves of a number of people involved both personally and even some more remotely connected to the Restoration Movement.
