NEHGS Register (The Diary of Israel Litchfield, notes)
"A large, imposing man with a "deep, gruff voice," he "lived in that part of Scituate facetiously...called 'Sodom,' of which he was wont to say jocosely that he was king." Daniel was a natural leader who filled important public offices including one year as representative to the General Court (1785); he also served as a private in Capt. Pierce's company of minutemen."
