Arrived in the DeWitt Colony 5 Mar 1831 according to land records. Daniel Davis and family of 3 received a sitio on Denton Creek and the Guadalupe River on the current Gonzales and DeWitt County line. Daniel later purchased four city lots within two blocks of the Gonzales courthouse square and built three homes for himself and family members. In 1835 Daniel assisted with forging iron shot for the "Come and Take It" cannon during the Battle of Gonzales.

Both Daniel Davis and his wife, Elizabeth Davidson Davis (as well as other early settlers) were buried in the original Gonzales Cemetery which was located in the inner town square designated in 1825 as a cemetery. A historical marker was located on the site of the original cemetery square and stated that Daniel Davis participated in the Mier expedition. In 1984 this area was declared "public land" by the City of Gonzales and the remains of those buried in the old cemetery were exhumed and transferred to a common unmarked burial site in the newer Gonzales City Cemetery.
