At the time of his death he was aged 85 years, 4 months and 2 days. He was taken ill near the first of the year and has been in poor health ever since. His death was due more to advanced age than to any disease.
He leaves five children living, his wife having died in 1897. Four of the children reside in Webster County, and one, the youngest daughter, resides in Buffalo Center, Iowa.

Mr. Daniels is well known over the entire county as one of the earliest of the Webster county settlers who still are living. he was universally well liked and the news of his death will bring sadness to the many friends of the family, and all extend their sympathy to the children in their loss.
