When Daniel came to Tx. he settled in Kempner, Tx and opened a supply store, which still stands today 2010. He carried the mail from Belton to Lampasas and was the 1st County Judge of Lampasas bet 1860-64. He was a stock raiser and went on cattle drives on the Chisholm Trail. He died in Raymond, Ks in 1872 while on a cattle drive.
I have no further info on his Parents or siblings although I know he brought a nephew with him to Tx. He had a sister in Ky, but no names.
I have lots of info on his children and grands and greats...just can't go before him.
