Daniel Spencer Sr. (1764-1844) was a shoemaker early in life and later a farmer and blacksmith. He also fought in the Revolutionary War. West Stockbridge exported marble to surrounding areas and Daniel at age 12, was frequently sent with loads of marble to Hudson City in the state of New York. Because of his father's poor health received from the war, Daniel and his brother Theron were placed in charge of the family farm
