In 1775, the Transylvania Colony, also referred to as the Transylvania Purchase, was a short-lived, extra-legal colony founded by North Carolina land speculator, Richard Henderson, who formed and controlled the Transylvania Company.

American pioneer, Daniel Boone, also had an interest for the “sylvania” suffix. If he’d had his way, Kentucky would have been called Transylvania, and the colony’s capital, Boonesborough.

Boone served as a militia officer during the Revolutionary War (1775–1783), which was fought in Kentucky primarily between American settlers and British-allied Indians. Boone was taken in by Shawnees in 1778 and adopted into the tribe, but he resigned and continued to help protect the Kentucky settlements.
