Birth: Sep. 2, 1833
Death: Feb. 2, 1922

Daniel moved with his parents to Iowa near Richland in 1846. He worked in a shoe shop, clerked in a store, and was also a supply teacher in the Richland schools. When the Civil War broke out he volunteered his services. He tried to join the infantry, but was rejected on account of being under weight and height. He volunteered for cavalry service and became a member of Co. D, 9th Iowa Cavalry on August 12, 1863. He enlisted for three years. He received an honorable discharge from the service February 28, 1866.

When he came back from the war he married Ann Wayman Wade, a war widow. They lived at her farm near Richland. After the children were grown, he sold the farm near Richland and they moved to the Pine Tree Stock farm near Woodburn, IA, in September of 1901. He formed a partnership with his sons - Charles, Fred and Isaac and engaged in farming and stock raising under the firm name of Daniel Davis and Sons. They purchased the 380 acres in September 26, 1901, from Charles and Mary Ury. 140 acres in Section 26, 120 acres in Section 25 where their home was located, and 120 acres in Section 24 of Jackson Twp., Clarke Co., IA. The partnership was dissolved in 1919 after Isaac's death, and Daniel and his wife moved to Woodburn. He was born and raised a Quaker and held to that faith.
