Mr. Almond Daniells, who died Saturday and was buried yesterday, was born in the town of Manheim, N.Y., June 3d, 1818, being at his death more than 79 years of age. During his early life Mr. Daniells had quite a struggle to make his way in the world, beginning with school teaching, then working on the farm and afterward engaging in the mercantile business. He came West, when twenty or thirty years of age and spent several years in teaching school in Scott and Owen counties, Kentucky. It was in Scott county, y., that he married his first wife, Miss Mary E. Branham, in 1853. She died at North Madison, Ind., in 1858. Some years later he married Miss Susan E. Branham, of Kentucky, a sister of his first wife, who also lived but a few years after their marriage. He married his present wife, Miss Abigail Wolford, of Cato, N.Y., in 1869. She lives to mourn his loss.

Mr. Daniells before the war lived at North Madison, Ind., and while there taught school, ran on the railroad and worked in a store. He was in the service during the war about four months. He came to Madison during the war, where for some time he was deputy, first in the County Treasurer's office, and afterward in the Auditor's office. The Auditor, Mr. Rowlison, dying before his term of office. Mr. Daniells was afterward elected as County Treasurer, which position he filled with credit. Going out of public office he went into partnership with Mr. Henry White in the grocery business, in which he was not successful financially. Since then he had been bookkeeper for different firms.

Mr. Daniells was a Knight Templar in the Mason Order, and was secretary of all the different Masonic organization of this city for nearly a quarter of a century. He was also a member of the Monroe Lodge of the Odd Fellows Order, and in both these societies was held in high esteem.

Mr. Daniells has also lived an active Christian life as a member of the Baptist church. He united with the church at North Madison after 30 years of age, but on moving to Madison he has since been a faithful and consistent member of the Vine street Baptist Church of this city. He has been Deacon in the church for more than 8 years; was Sunday School Superintendent for many years, and Clerk of the Madison Baptist Association since 1869. He always took an active interest in all Christian and benevolent enterprises. In politics he was an earnest Republican, and was always able to give good reason for adherence to the principles of the grand old party of progress and of right.

Mr. Daniells will be missed very greatly by his church and by his many friends in Madison and vicinity. He lived an active life with up to within a few months of his death, but during the last seven months he has been a patient sufferer and was confined to his room the larger part of the time. He died a peaceful death Saturday, August 14, 1897. He leaves a wife and one daughter, Mrs. Cora Hoy, of Maywood, Ill.
