Posting my grandmother Agatha Lorraine Daniels, born in Cherokee Co,
Iowa, born 7 Feb 1892. I have posted names of her familly, but not this
source history. The following is from a one page type written letter to my
aunt, It was typed in 1955 (circa). The idea being, maybe someone
recognizes something out of the whole listing. We have lots of data going
forward, but ground zero going back. This is how the letter is written:
m Hanorah Kelly
and had children
Sylvester Sullivan Daniels (Vet)
died dec 25th 1940
James Thomas Daniels(JT)
born 26 Apr 1855
died 26 Feb 1936, Mpls, MN
second marraige of Sullivan Daniels
and had children
Jane (in 1952 she was 82)
m Will Daly(in 1952 he was 86)
Sylvester Daniels (Vet)
first marraige m ?????????
second marraige Nellie ??????
James Thomas Daniels
m Elizabeth McDermott MY GREAT GRANDPARENTS
in Cherokee Co, Iowa 13 Nov 1881
Elizabeth died 19 Nov 1896
m Martha Reddin on 17 Apr 1898
"By reverse projection if Sullivan Daniels and Hanorah Kelly were 25 years
old when Vet or Jim were born-----they themselves would have been born
around 1930 Apparantly Hanorah Kelly died when Vet and Jim were boys . I
remember my father (Jim) telling about either his mother or his grandmother
burning to death from her clothes catching fire from smoking her pipe while
she was riding in a sleigh. Also I remember him telling about his
grandmother being born on the ocean on the way over to the states from
Ireland. Could this have beeen Hanorah Kelly's mother?
Sylvester Daniels (Vet) and Nellie both had children by a first marraige
when they were married. One was a boy and the other was a girl. When these
children grew up they married each other. That is a step brother married
his step sister.
James Daniels married Elizabeth McDermott in 1881. They had seven children.
James Daniels married Martha Reddin on 27 Apr 1896. To this union 13
children were born.
Note: In a letter written to Carrie (Daniels) Rooney at Christmas 1952 by
one of Vet's and Nellie's (or Vet's child or Nellie's by their previous
marrage) signed her name Addie. She also mentioned Edna and Vivian. These
names seem familar but can't quite place the relantionship."
Carrie Daniels Rooney is my Great Aunt and died in Los Angeles. She had two
daughters. (my Grandmother's sister)
