Jun. 19, 1860 Salt Lake City Salt Lake County Utah, USA
Daniel was born at the end of a Welsh Mormon Handcart Trek across the West. His parents had converted to Mormonism while in Wales and felt compelled to move to "Zion" in Utah. They sold everything they had, came over by ship, and pushed their carts across the prairies of the West towards Salt Lake City. Daniel's parents became disenchanted and return to the edge of the West--Council Bluffs, Iowa. The family became part of a reorganization of believers that met there.
On the 1880 census, Daniel was listed as living with his parents. There is no trail to follow after that.
