Birth: Feb. 24, 1830
Death: Mar. 6, 1902

After Daniel's marriage, he and his wife lived for about four years in the original John Reed home. It was a small log cabin that stood adjacent to the old Maple tree of traditional fame to the family. In the late 1850's, when John Reed divided his estate among his grandchildren, Daniel received an inheritance of money rather than land, as did some of the others. He used this money to acquire a tract of land in eastern Maries County near the Gasconade County line. This land was ashort distance east of his father-in-law's property and the Atkins schoolhouse, a renowned landmark in that area of Maries County.

This farm became the home of Daniel and Sally Crider for the remainder of their lives, except for the time that Daniel was away in the military service during the Civil War. With the advent of the war, Daniel enlisted in the Union Army on 30 August 1862 at Rolla, Missouri. As did many others of the family, he rode with Company I of the 10th Missouri Cavalry comanded by Captain McGlasson. At Columbus, Kentucky;Daniel sustained a severe back injury, when his horse fell, and he was trod upon by another troopers horse. He remained on active duty with the 10th Cavalry throughout the campaign in northern MS. and later served on occupation duty at Vicksburg, MS.. In January, February andMarch of 1865, he was at service at Chattanooga, Tennessee. Returning to his unit for duty, he remained until 30 August 1865. He was mustered out of the service at Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Upon his return to Missouri and his family he took up farming which he stayed with for the remainder of his life. Daniel and his wife actually had twelve children, but only nine of their names have survived and the other three are believed to have died as small children or infants.

It is believed that the following land transaction in Maries County, Missouri involved the instant Daniel:

20 Nov 1884 - Section 25, Twp. 41, Range 7 - from Daniel Crider to WC. Wallace (Ref: Maries County, Missouri Deed Book W, p. 200)
