  1. Daniel Boone. Coffin.
    Wow. So many parts of this story are interesting.
    Interesting how it was soon after his wife died that he had a coffin made out of black walnut for himself.
    Interesting that he kept it under his bed for several years and would often take it out and lie down on it.
    Interesting how when a stranger died in the community, he gave that coffin for the stranger.
    Interesting how he had another made of cherry for himself, also placed under his bed until his time to be buried beside his wife.
    Yup, interesting is my word of the day, LOL.

  2. Amazing man, that Daniel Boone. Who but him could sleep with a coffin under his bed? I love these questions and the answers!

  3. Daniel Boone and a coffin and I spent 15 minutes lookign this up – I did not cheat from the previouss answers. I could write a book about Daniel Boone now
