Daniel Cornell was born on Christmas Day, 1861, in Knox County, Ohio. He and his younger brother Ernest learned the contracting business from their father, Julius Cornell. Ernest came West to Tacoma in 1888, and Daniel went to join him in 1889, where they formed a partnership that would last over half a century. Their contracting firm of Cornell Bros. would build such prominent Tacoma structures as First Presbyterian Church, the Port Piers and grain elevators, Elks temple, and the Stone-Fisher Building. Notable homes built by the brothers are the Chester Thorne and Weyerhaeuser residences. Daniel married Sarah Crawford in 1885 and they had two daughters.
