The family emigrated from the Allegheny Mountains of Maryland to Kentucky in 1789. By the age of eight, Daniel had only about six months of formal schooling.

In 1806, the family removed to Hamilton County, Ohio. Daniel was drafted in the War of 1812 for a term of six months. Being lame, his son Daniel Harrison, not yet eighteen, served for him. In 1817, he moved his family to Ripley County, Indiana.
