Daniel Haymore, Jr., son of Daniel and Mary Schockley Haymore, was born 11 November 1819 at Mt. Airy, Surry County, North Carolina. He married Martha Hall (daughter of Oliver Hall and Lucy Carter) 30 April 1840. The Hall family lived in the same community of Mt. Airy, North Carolina. Martha was of medium height, light weight, with dark hair. She was a very good cook and was quick spoken. Daniel was a good-sized man with dark hair and blue eyes—very talented and quiet. He attended a public school, became a farmer and owned a flour mill. To operate the two-story flour mill, Daniel put a dam in the creek and built an overshot water wheel which furnished the power. He made the cog wheels out of hickory wood which ran the elevators to elevate the grain and a sieve separated the flour from the bran. The neighbors would bring two bushel of grain, corn or wheat to the mill in a sack across the back of a horse and would exchange for flour or meal. Daniel also had a distillery where he made apple and peach brandy. He also owned a tannery and tanned his own leather from which he made his own shoes and boots. He was a real mechanic and blacksmith.

Daniel heard that Missouri was a very promising state so he sold his farm at Mt. Airy and put his wife, Martha, and children and what household goods they managed to get into a wagon drawn by two horses. A young colt followed. The journey took many days. The children eased the load by walking some of the time, and when they had a fever they rode and when they had chills they walked to keep warm. When they ferried across the Missouri River the colt fell into the water. Martha's brother, Alfred Hall, who was with them, rescued it. The Haymore's only stayed in Missouri a few months as there was a drought that year and the crops dried up from the lack of moisture. After returning to Mt. Airy, Daniel and Martha contracted typhoid fever. Martha passed away 22 August 1884 in Mt. Airy, Surry County, North Carolina. Daniel told his family where to bury her in a plot on their farm near the house. The grave is still there. Daniel died 3 July 1990. Daniel and Martha had seven children all born in Mt. Airy, Surry County, North Carolina.
