      Another credible source gives his DOB as Jun 30, 1790, nr Harrodsburg KY. He Moved to: Parke Co. IN about 1822. He Moved to: Marion Co. AR about 1842.(525) Daniel came to Marion Co. AR on horseback in 1842, bought a mill on Mill Creek south of Yellville. He returned to IN and brought back son Jesse and another hand; in 1848 he brought the rest of the family. His mill was on the site of an old Indian village. He died on Feb 19 1863 in Yellville AR.(526) (527) Murdered by bushwhackers who tried to extort money from him. They hanged him from a tree in his nightshirt to make him tell where his money was hidden. He refused to tell, and the robbers went into the house after his wife. He managed to free himself, at which point the robbers shot him in the bowels. He crawled through snow to the house of Col. Eli Dotson, a mile away, where he died. He was a Miller; blacksmith; wagon maker; still operator. He was buried in Wickersham Cemetery, Yellville AR. Daniel was considered a good man because he would trade one bushel of shelled corn for one gallon of pure corn whiskey.
