I note that John Hildebrand settled in Jefferson County, MO just South of St. Louis, MO in 1774 receiving a Spanish land grant. I can't help wonder why Daniel Boone gets the credit for opening the West to settlement, when his 'achievement' landed him in Eastern Kentucky in 1775 (James Harrod also settled in Kentucky in 17740. Note that Eastern Kentucky is about 300 miles East of the Hildebrand settlement. Did Daniel simply have a better public relations associate? I am not a historian so things like this puzzle me.
