Daniel is listed in his sister's obituary as living in Rockland, Delaware Co.(April 1923). Another descendant has him listed as dying in 1923. This man is a big BRICK WALL for us...Please, please, please...Is there some saintly fellow genealogist out there that could look in the Rockland newspaper archives, or any Rockland or Walton cemetaries for Daniel's grave...Anything at all would help. He may have even married and had children in NY. He was partly Native American, and was probably born in Greene Co. His sister's name was Keturah Kniffen Cline. He supposedly traveled with Buffalo Bill's Wild WEst show.
