Daniel was a remarkable man. He was born of a farmer and the grandson of a Irishman. He was the eldest child of 5 children. Ray received a good education and became a teacher at the age of 21. After the Battle of Stones River/ Murfreesboro he was placed in command of the 2nd and 3rd Division of the Cavalry. D.M. is reporeted to have refused to be a brevet general preferring to be a "colonel with a reputation rather than a general without one." He served also through Chickamauga, the siege of Knoxville, the Atlanta campaign and the battles of Franklin, Nashville, and Jonesboro. He resigned from the army due to health issues and returned to his wife and family. He married Louise Farris then Laura Heizaer. Following the war he moved to Iroquois County, Illinois. Twelve years later he sold his property and moved to Yates Center, Kansas where he engaged in merchandising, the office of county surveyor. He belonged to the Grand Army of the Republic and the A.O.U.W.
