"S. W. Daniels, deceased, was a resident of Morrill county for more than twenty years. He stood well with all who knew him. He came here an experienced farmer, homesteaded on section twenty-six, greatly improved his property and was numbered with the substantial and dependable men of the county. He was born in Pennsylvania, July 30, 1854. "

"Mr. Daniels obtained his education in the public schools and grew up on a farm. When he left Pennsylvania he went to Iowa as a farmer, later to Kansas and before coming to Nebraska, was a resident of Michigan. In February, 1900, he homesteaded where he lived and had one hundred and sixty acres of well developed, ditched land. He carried on general farming and raised pure bred Shorthorn cattle. While in Iowa Mr. Daniels was married to Miss Rhoda Eckley who was born in that state. At her death, Mrs. Daniels left three children: Leo, who is a farmer in Morrill county; John, deceased; Mrs. Zadie Eckhart, who lives at Edison, Nebraska; and Mrs. Lydia Smith, who lives in Morrill county. In 1913, Mr. Daniels was married a second time to Miss Ada Van De Venter. Mrs. Daniels is a member of the Presbyterian church. In political life Mr. Daniels was a Republican. Mr. Daniels died January 30, 1920, leaving a sorrowing family and friends. His funeral was held at the Presbyterian church, and he was laid to rest in the Bayard cemetery after a long and useful life"
