Sun newspaper, Baltimore, MD, Monday, Sept. 19, 1892:
Col. Daniel V. Ahl fell dead Friday morning at his home in Newville, Pa. He was sixty-eight years old. Death was due to apoplexy. He was part owner of the Caledonia furnace. With his brother Peter he owned and operated the Boiling Springs, Big Pond and Cleversburg furnaces. He was formerly one of the owners of the Antietam furnace in Washington county, Md. It was to reach this furnace that he projected and begun the Harrisburg and Potomac Railroad and completed a small portion before his finances felled him in the crash of 1877. The road was subsequently purchased at public sale by the Reading. Mr. Ahl was a man of untiring energy and experienced many vicissitudes in fortune.
