Christos; Sorry I have been so long in answering your post. The account book was the original, handed down in the family until the present, leather bound with very legible, fine script. Daniel was obviously schooled. Yes, I admit to a typo eror on the 1822 date. New information has been posted identifying Daniel as the father of Jesse, Eliza and Sophia by his first wife, Elizabeth Bowser, who apparently preceded him in death. From the newspaper account in the Adams centinel of 1829 regarding the disposition of the farm of one Samuel Bowser, a near neighbor. Daniel then remarried in 1814 to Christina Decker, who mothered Levi and another Daniel. I assume the 1850 census has Christina living with her 32 year old son Daniel, since she was left without support at husband Daniel's untimely death. This Daniel must have been born between 1775 and 1779 upon analysis of the 1810 and 1820 census's, where he reports his age as between 26-45 in each. This separates him from John's Daniel, who was in the revolution. However I find a Daniel Jr. listed in muster roles of the revolution in a different company than listed for Daniel, John's son. Obviously he did not live long enough to apply for a pension after the law came into effect in 1832. I am operating on the hunch that this is the father of the Daniel we are considering, and the son of Phillip Daniel. Ken Groscost
