Daniel was known as "Long Daniel" because he was a tall, slim man. He was a farmer in Otisfield and, at one time, a partner with his brother, Joseph, in a mill at East Otisfield (It burned in December 1901). He lived in Portland for several years, operating a hotel. Then, he moved on to Boston for a year or two before returning to Maine and Harrison where he lived for 15 years. He then moved back to Otisfield for a few years, then he moved to Bolster's Mills. Daniel is also remembered as being one of the old time fifers who played for the musters and other gatherings.
For a few years in the late 1800's, Daniel wrote an occasional newspaper column for the "Oxford County Advertiser" in which he told of his recollections of persons and events in Otisfield during the 19th century. For example, one article, "Recollections of an Old Man in His Eighty-first Year," in the 7 September 1883 edition, told about early wagons and carriages in Otisfield.
In the article he wrote for the 1 February 1884 edition, he states "I was born in Otisfield in the second year of the present century." Three years later, in the 3 June 1887 edition, he states "I was born 18 October 1802."

From that obituary, we learn that Susan had been ill for several months. She is quoted as saying in her final hours, "I have been in the habit of singing some since I have been sick; but I have become so feeble that I shall never sing any more in this world; but, glory to God, I shall sing with you in heaven."

John (40-ii, 122) was known as "Bud John" because of the way he demonstrated how to trap partridges. He would set a trap, put it on a log and then say, "The partridge will come along and, bud, bud, bud," putting his finger on the log as he spoke. When he got to the trap he would put his finger in it, almost losing the finger in the process.
John and Elizabeth faced tragedy after tragedy in their lifetime. On 26 October 1843 their six-year-old daughter, Annis, burned to death when her clothing somehow caught fire. Four years later, one of the twins, Henrietta (now aged five), fell into the fireplace and died on 12 December 1847. On 24 September 1862 the other twin, Georgianna, died at age 20. Two years later, during the Civil War, their son, Jackson, died in New Orleans on 2 May 1864. Jackson's wife, Ruth, gave birth to a son just two days later, but that infant died only 12 days after birth. John and Elizabeth are buried in Scribner Hill Cemetery, Upper Yard. Nearby are the graves of Jackson's infant son and Georgianna, and a monument to Jackson, who is buried in Louisiana.
