Oregon Republican League: Elder Photos

Oregon Republican League:Republican League Register of Oregon, The Register Publishing Company, 1896, page 146.

DANIEL, SAMUEL, living at the east base of Mount Tabor, Multnomah County, was born in Franklin County, Ohio, near Columbus, November 20, 1823. In the spring of 1842 he removed with the family to Boone County, Illinois, near Belvedere. In 1865 he went to Iowa, and engaged for nine years in the furniture and undertaking business in Waterloo and La Porte City. In August, 1876, he came to Oregon, purchased land near Portland, and has since been actively engaged in farming. Mr. Daniel has always been an earnest Republican. He spoke and worked for the abolition of slavery, and was one of the original Republicans. While yet young he was licensed to preach, and in the pulpit he spoke strong words for freedom and Union. He is an earnest speaker and a fluent and entertaining conversationalist, his mind being stored with the riches gathered in a long life of studious reading. After a life of activity and struggle, he is now enjoying his declining years in the home built by his toil, surrounded by his family and his multitude of friends.
