Following contains excerpts from Click Family History by John Daniel Hodges in 1920's:
Daniel Click, the third child of Nicholas Click, was born October 31, 1780. He was married to Anna Maria Ratts on the 6th of March, 1807. Mary Ann was the daughter of Godfrey Ratts who lived in what is now Davidson County. He (Ratts) was buried in Wesley Chapel graveyard near Tyro, N.C. She was born in 1785 and died January 25, 1840, age 55. She was kind to her husband and children and had their love and respect to an unusual extent. Daniel died of pneumonia December 7, 1845.

When he married, his father (the original settler) gave him 216 acres of land adjoining himself on the north. Here Daniel built a home of great hewn woods pine. He and his wife "raised" the house, using horses to draw up the logs in place. This building is still in use and in good repair, though 127 years old at this time, 1927.

Daniel Click was a very remarkable man in many respects. He was noted for energy, thrift beyond that of most men. He, simply by farming, acquired large holdings on both sides of the Yadkin River. He owned many farms away from the river, approximately 5,000 acres in all.

In the dry summer of 1845, his newly cleared Yadkin River bottoms produced abundantly. During the following summer, people from far and near came to him to buy corn. Some came with money or negotiable paper, others without money or script. All alike got corn in small quantities and at a reasonable price. No speculator, merchant or trader could buy. This is just a sample of his generosity and whole-hearted kindness to friends and neighbors. He was universally acclaimed the best farmer in the county. His big, fat horses and fine cattle sheep and hogs his fine meadows with not a weed to be found in them; his fertile, well-tilled fields; his high fences "stake and ridered" straight as a rifle barrel and seemingly built by use of a plum blim all this the admiration of neighbors and marvel of strangers.

Daniel Click was an official member of the Lutheran Church at Jerusalem, and was a constant attendant at Sunday school and all church services. He was foremost in every good word and work, looking to the benefit of the church and community.

At the age of 65 Daniel died, loved and respected as perhaps no other man in the community had been. He was buried in the Click graveyard half a mile north of Jerusalem
