     Chloe Donnally Boone, daughter of Alphonso D. Boone and Nancy Linville Boone, was born circa 1822.1
Chloe moved along with Alphonso D. Boone and Nancy Linville Boone in 1839 from Montgomery County, Missouri to Jefferson City, Cole County, Missouri.2
Boones Ferry Road is one of the busiest roads in the Portland area, but not many modern residents are aware that there once actually was a ferry on Boones Ferry Road -- and fewer still know that the Boone in question was a descendant of the one and only Daniel Boone.

The branch of the Boone family that emigrated to Oregon was led by Daniel's grandson, Alphonso Boone. Moving west seems to have run in the family, as Alphonso "westered" at least three times in his life. In 1841, he set up shop in Independence, Missouri, outfitting fur traders and caravans on the Santa Fe Trail. From 1843 to '45, Alphonso cashed in on a new source of business: emigrants bound for Oregon and California. In 1846, Alphonso headed west with seven of his children, his sister Panthea Boone Boggs, and her husband Lilburn W. Boggs, former governor of Missouri.

The Boones jumped off from Westport, Missouri, where Alphonso's brother, Albert Gallatin Boone, ran his own a general store catering to the overland trade. The Boones with their eleven wagons joined a California-bound wagon train which they expected to stay with to Fort Hall or thereabouts. Traveling in the same train were several people whose names are still known to historians, including Edwin Bryant, J. Quinn Thornton, T. H. Jefferson, George Law Curry, and George Donner and family.

Alphonso Boone's brother-in-law, Lilburn Boggs, wanted to be captain of the train, but he lost the election by a landslide to one William H. Russell. Dissatisfaction with the leadership of Captain Russell was widespread, however, and he complained that:

My duties as commandant are troublesome beyond anything I could conceive of. I am annoyed with all manner of complaints, one will not do this, and another has done something that must be atoned for, and occasionally, through variety, we have a fight among ourselves... I sometimes get out of patience myself, and once I threw up my commission, but to my surprise...I was again unanimously re-elected...

- William H. Russell, June 13, 1846

A week or two later at Ash Hollow, Russell resigned again, and the wagon train broke up into small groups for the remainder of the journey. These parties, including the Boones, remained loosely associated with one another, often exchanging members, banding together, and splitting up again as the days wore on.

The Boones reached South Pass on July 18, and two days later they encountered a lone horseman from the west urging emigrants to try a new, shorter route to California being promoted by Lansford W. Hastings. Led by George Donner, about twenty wagons from the Russell train turned off to follow this new route into the history books.

On August 8, at Fort Hall, the Boones met a man promoting another new route, this one leading to Oregon's Willamette Valley instead of California. Panthea Boone Boggs and her husband struck out for California, while Alphonso Boone decided to take a chance on the new road to Oregon, known as the Southern Route or the Applegate Trail.

This proved to be a mistake. The Applegate Trail was a hard road through difficult terrain with limited access to water. To make matters worse, the Indians of southern Oregon and northern California were extremely hostile to the overlanders. While they didn't stage a full-blown attack on the emigrants, they frequently harassed them by shooting arrows at their livestock and stealing from their wagons. Indians opportunistically attacked and killed two overlanders who got separated from the groups they were traveling with.

As winter weather set in and threatened to strand the travelers on the Applegate Trail, the emigrants began throwing away everything they could in order to lighten the load for their exhausted, footsore oxen. They cached their valuables in hope of being able to return for them later, but the Indians dug up and stole all but a few items of clothing. The Boones lost everything that they couldn't carry out of the mountains on their backs, including a compass and surveying instruments that had once belonged to Daniel Boone himself.

It was Christmastime when the Boones finally reached the settlements in the Willamette Valley. In the spring of 1847, Alphonso moved his family upriver and claimed 1000 acres across the Willamette from present-day Wilsonville. The Boones established a ferry on an old Indian trail running from Salem and the French Prairie area to the newly established city of Portland, offering a more direct route than going by way of Oregon City. They improved the trail by laying down a "corduroy road" of split tree trunks to get wagons through the muddiest stretches, and it grew into a major thoroughfare. Legend has it that their road was a hotbed for moonshiners, who operated stills hidden in hollows and glens nearby and used the road to transport their product to town. Alphonso made a point of operating his ferry 24 hours a day for the convenience of his customers, which may have had something to do with the number of illegal distilleries operating along his road...

One of the Boones' neighbors was George Law Curry, who knew the family from the Oregon Trail and had taken a shine to Alphonso's eldest daughter, Chloe. George courted Chloe by canoe, paddling up and down the river to pay regular visits until she consented to marry him. He later became the third and last governor of the Oregon Territory, in office from 1854-59.

When word of the gold strikes in California reached Oregon in 1848, Alphonso and his boys headed south to make their fortune. On February 1, 1850, Alphonso died at Long's Bar of an illness contracted in the gold fields. Though they lost their father, the Boone brothers did well in the mines, and Alphonso's sons gradually dispersed across the Northwest with their fortunes assured: Jesse returned to Oregon and ran the ferry for 26 years, until he was murdered by a neighbor in a dispute over access to the river; Alphonso (junior) briefly ran the ferry before selling it to Jesse and going into the steamboat business; Joshua settled in Benton County, Oregon; and James moved to Idaho and ran the Morning Star Silver Mine.

The only son of Alphonso Boone who didn't accompany him to Oregon was George Luther Boone. Many years later, he told his story to fellow Oregon Trail emigrant Eva Emery Dye:

When I was twelve years old, my mother died; and Father, Col. Alphonso Boone, named for an old Spanish friend of his Grandfather Daniel, moved us up to Jefferson City, where he opened a trading post to outfit caravans for the Oregon Trail. My father's sister, Aunt Panthea, the wife of Governor Boggs, lived in a fine house next to the Missouri state capitol. ... When Father moved to Independence near Kansas City I struck out on the plains as a trapper working for my Uncle Albert Gallatin Boone, agent for the Kaw and Cheyenne Indians. ...

In the early Spring of 1846 when my Father, Colonel Alphonso Boons, with his large family of boys and girls set out on the Oregon Trail, I was absent on a trading trip to the Arapahoes and Cherry Creek where Denver was yet to be. With my mouse-colored mules I was carrying trading goods for Uncle Albert into the farther Rocky Mountain wilds.

By midsummer, with goods sold out and three wagon-loads of furs for Uncle Albert, I returned to Westport to find my folks gone and Colonel Doniphan there recruiting for the Mexican War. ... Selling my mules to the government I was mustered in at Fort Leavenworth and was soon on the march for Santa Fe.

- George L. Boone

George was honorably discharged in 1847 and led a wagon train across the plains the following spring to join his family in Oregon. In 1849, he went to find his father and brothers in California, made some money shipping freight, and returned to Oregon to settle down in 1852.

The ferry established by Alphonso Boone in 1847 operated continuously for 107 years. It was finally shut down in 1954 after the completion of a highway bridge adjacent to the ferry crossing.3

Letter written to Eva Emery Dye, an Oregon historian:

Yanquina Lincoln Co. Oregon
March 18th 1904

Mrs. Eva Emma Dye Oregon City

Dear Madam. Your favor of the 14th inst Received. Asking me to give you a sketch of our Family, as I am a very Poor hand to Write I will try and do the best I can. In Order to make things as Plain as I can I will begin as far Back as I can Recollect.

My Fathers Name was Alphonso Boone. Born in Kentucky he being the son of Jessie Boone. Jessie Boone being the son of Daniel Boone. Making Daniel Boone my Great Grand Father. I never saw my Grand Father only an Oil Painting Life size he left with his sister Harriet Baber in Jefferson City Mo. Hiram Baber was Secretary of State. There was but One of Daniel Boones sons that I Ever saw, that was Col. Nathan Boone belonging to the Army he being Daniel Boones youngest son, Was stationed at Fort LeaVenworth when I left the states in 1848.

Albert Gallatin Boone was a Brother of my Father he Lived in Westport, Jackson Co. Mo. 4 Miles from Kansas City, was in the Mercantile Business there for several years he moved to Colorado he Died in Denver City. My Father had Four sisters Harriet Baber of Jefferson City, Mo. Minerva Warner, of Weston, Mo. Emily Henderson of Fulton Mo and Panthea Boggs Ex Gov of Mo. My Father moved from Kentucky in 1818 Settled in Montgomery Co Mo. where I was Born on the 6th day of June 1826. In 1839 we moved to Jefferson City, Mo My Mother died whilst I quite young.

In 1846 My Father and uncle Lilburn W. Boggs, started for Oregon, on Bear River Lilburn W. Boggs took the California trail and our Folks the Oregon trail the Emigrants that took the California Road with the Exception of a few was snowed in with the Donner Party which you will Remember. Our Folks came in the southern Rout by the way of Klamath Lake Comeing to the canyon in southern (Oregon) they had to Leave their wagons and cache their goods and wade about twelve miles through the Water and over big Boulders. My Father had with his things Cached at the Far End of Canyon Daniel Boones Compass and all of his surveying instruments the Emigrants went back the next spring the Indians had found the things Cached they got nothing Our Folks Packed One Ox with Clothing they got into the Willamette Valley at the Crossing of Marys River on Christmas day whent down to Lacreol where there was a few settlers.

After getting to Dalles we were Entirely out of Provissions we found a man there by the name of Nathan Olney was ready to start to the Valley with a bunch of horses. He had a Klickatat wife. He had about a doz Indians to drive horses we Lived from the Dalles to Oregon City on Cammas. It had been steamed and Dried that was in the Fall of 1848. There was one store Owned by the Hudson Bay all their good came from England and only Grist mill in the Country was there I will tell you what kind of tabacco they had it was put up on Coils just like rope and about the size of inch Rope it was sold by the Fathom or yard and as strong as acquafortis. Mr. Curry was publishing a paper there then. I will (tell) you a few names that were Living there then. Mr. McLoughlin, W.G.TVault, Mr. Hood, Sidney Moss, Gov A ernathey, William McKay, Mr. McKinley. In the spring of 49 W.G.

Whilst Living on the border and in the Mountains I got to know all of the Old traders and Trapper, the Bents, Carson Fremont Fitspatric Bill williams Beckwith. I see Beckwith's name mentioned in the Papers as guide He was a negro. I forgot to state that I first heard of the Discovery of the mines I saw a Trader on Bear River in a Shake Indian village he said a Party had just Passed there and told him they and discovered gold in Cal. The first news they got in Oregon of the mines a vessel came into the Columbia that Brought the news. The mines was discovered I think in Feb. 1848.
