Daniel was a son of Peter, a native of Lancaster County, near Nanheim, Penn., where the great-great-grandfather settled on his arrival from Switzerland. The family as far back as can be traced were members of the Mennonite Church. Daniel Lehman married Nancy Hoover, who died at the age of eighty-seven years. She had nine children who reached maturity: Samuel, John, Daniel, Jacob, David,Nancy, Elizabeth, Barbara, and Susannah. Daniel (the grandfather)died in March. 1847, aged seventy years. He was a minister, for many years in his chosen church, and always has an influence for good in the community in which he lived. He was an invalid the last ten years of his life, having been injured by a horse. His son, Peter married Susan, daughter of Jacob Detwiller.
