Kathy is no stranger to adventure. She is a direct descendant of Daniel Boone, the famed American pioneer, explorer, woodsman, and frontiersman from the late 1700s -early 1800s. Albert G. Boone, grandson of Daniel Boone, was one of the founders of Lecompton in 1854. In fact, Boone Street in Lecompton is named for him. Amazingly, over 150 years later, Kathy Paslay, the Boone descendant, has a shop right on the main street of Lecompton at 336 Elmore Street!
When Albert G. (A. G.) Boone and another fellow Dr. Aristides Roderique picked the site for the town, they saw a bald eagle fly overhead. At the suggestion of Dr. Aristides Roderique, the town was originally named “Bald Eagle.” It went by that name for a short time before the name “Lecompton” was chosen, in honor of the chief justice of the territorial supreme court, Samuel D. Lecompte, from Maryland. Bald eagles can still be seen flying over Lecompton!
