Included are biographical sketches by other writers; correspondence with surviving pioneers and Kenton descendants; narrative notes about Kenton and his associates; original manuscripts by Kenton's contemporaries; dispositions describing Kenton's military career; legal documents; and newspaper and periodical articles. Kenton's own papers are sparse; although he could sign his name, he never learned to read or write.
