Notes: Daniel served in the 7th Indiana Calvary during the Civil War until it was mustered out of service in 1866. After the end of hostilities the 7th Indiana was made part of a cavalry force under George Armstrong Custer for service at Austin, TX to protect the Texas/Mexican border and as a result was the last Indiana unit to be mustered out of Federal service. During the war the 7th Indiana Cavalry was stationed at White's Station outside Memphis, TN. It participated in several major battles in MS and MO including Iuka, Ivey's Farm and Brice's Crossroads in MS and West Port in MO and Grierson's Second Raid into MS and LA as well as a host of lesser actions. (West Port was the largest battle fought west of the Mississippi and featured a saber charge by the 7th Indiana.) After returning to Union City Daniel was very active in the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) and his wife continued to host GAR gatherings after his death.
