There are places in EDIT PROFILE for different parts of a name. [I call them boxes] I believe you have a bit too much in the First Name box. Most people are known by the highest military rank they reached. In his Wikipedia Page at URL
I could not find where he reached Col. The Spanish governor appointed Boone "syndic" (judge and jury) and commandant (military leader) of the Femme Osage district. Possibly this might have had a military rank of full Col. I think he was a Lt. Col. but have my doubts of the rank of full Col.
While he had a son named Daniel Morgan Boone, I don't see Jr. in his name. A lot of those born in Colonial days had no middle name. Wikipedia does not have either Morgan or Sr. attached to Daniel's name. If you have documentation that contradicts this, so be it.
If I were editing this profile, I would do the following;
Prefix; Lt. Col. First Name; Daniel Last Name; Boone Suffix; American pioneer, explorer, woodsman, and frontiersman, Patriot Under ADDITIONAL NAMES there are 4 more choices. Nickname; Sheltowee (Big Turtle)
This is your site. Do what you think is proper. These are my thoughts. You and several sites shown under RESEARCH THIS PERSON, seem to agree with what you have. Since most have exactly what you have, I think this was just passed on by Instant Discovery and Smart Match Merges. Wikipedia tries to get it right but they obtain their data from secondary sources. They even warn not to enter original research when placing new Wikipedia Pages. They want everything well sourced and documented from respected references.
I hope this proves useful. Thank you for your time.
