The story of Daniel's military
record use to haunt me ... until a cousin once stated - "Daniel was only a
private, if he hadn't followed orders he was subject to being shot ... then
where would we be?"
Memories from Daniel's gg-granddaughter
remember my mother saying that her great grandmother worried constantly
about the twins as they would run off to the Indian 'camp' to play and
the Indians were not friendly. They took one of their little brothers
with them in their toy wagon and he fell out and broke his arm, their
father was so angry with them that he gave the wagon to the next man who
came by. They didn't learn their lesson as they took the same brother
and followed the man - Grandpa Phelan followed them and when he caught
up with them a long ways from home he took the little brother onto his
horse and made the twins walk all the way home. She said her great
grandmother said if you don't like someone wish them a set of twins!
