Roadside turnout, east of Perry
      At the mouth of Stone house creek, 2 1/2 miles southeast of this marker, the U.S. government in 1827 established an agency for the Kansa Indians. Here Daniel Morgan Boone, son of the famous frontiersman, built a log house when he was appointed agriculturist to teach the Indians farming. His twelfth child, Napoleon, born here August 22, 1828, was the second white child and first white boy born in present Kansas of whom there is record.
