Daniel Lombard was born in South Paris, Oxford County, Maine, July 21, 1835. At the age of 8, his mother having died, he went to live in the home of Ether Deering in South Paris. After three years he was apprenticed to Henry R. Parsons with whom he stayed until he became of age, when he received from his employer $100 and a gold ring. Shortly after he came west in company with the N. C. Deering family and worked in the Deering sawmill on the banks of the Cedar River, southwest of Osage.

When the Civil war broke out he enlisted in the twenty-seventh Iowa Volunteer Infantry Company K, This company was organized by Captain Granger who in later years said that Dan's name headed the list of those who enlisted here. He served four years in the army and at the close of the War went to his old home in Maine, where, he was forced to spend the next three years in bed, With returning health, tho never completely well, he returned to Iowa, and in 1869 settled on the farm in Cedar township which he purchased in 1859.
