In April of 1861, when the Civil War was declared, Daniel enlisted in the Union Army. He served for three months before being mustered out. He re-enlisted in the 49th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, serving the Union Army until the end of the war.

In 1866, Daniel and Lettie left Ohio and moved to Illinois. Daniel, who was a carpenter by trade, worked on the Mississippi River Eads Bridge at St. Louis, Missouri. Later, he had a job finishing passenger coaches for the I. & S.L. railroad.

In 1886, they moved to Clark County, Kansas, where they farmed and raised cattle with their son, William Snyder. Around 1892, Daniel and Lettie moved to Ashland, Kansas where he served four years as register of deeds, four years as probate judge and two years as mayor.

He was also a charter member of the Eastern Star chapter of Ashland and for thirty-three years was a member of the Odd Fellows lodge.
