Mr. Dennis M. Daniels died suddenly at his home in Frederick, Md, on Sunday morning, December 27, 1903. He arose in his usual bright spirits, and had been chatting with the members of his family for a while and was in the act of combing his hair, when he was stricken with a spell of asthma and died in a few minutes. He was born February 24, 1827, near Duffields, this county, and was in the 77th year of his age. He lived in this county all his life up to two years ago, when he moved with his family to Frederick. About eight years ago he connected himself with the Lutheran Church, under the pastorate of Rev. C. H. Rockey, and remained a faithful and consistent member. Deceased was twice married, and is survived by his second wife and eleven children, three of whom are by his first marriage, John W. Daniels, Mrs. Adam Moler, and Mrs. William Link, all of this county. In 1864 he married his second wife, Miss Mary Anna Sperry, daughter of the late Maj. Warden W. Sperry, of Winchester, Va. The children by his second marriage are Mrs. John E. Burns, Silver Spring, Md; Mrs. Harry E. Mundey, Shepherdstown; Mrs. Harry E. Storm, Mr. Dennis M. Daniels, Jr., Frederick; Mrs. Chas. A. Reed, Cumberland, Md.; Mrs. Lacie D. Jenkins, Bakerton, this county; Mr. Harry S. Daniels and Miss Bessie H. Daniels, at home. The funeral service was held Tuesday at 2 o’clock at the late residence of the deceased, conducted by Rev. C. H. Rockey, and the remains were laid to rest in the Frederick Cemetery. Mr. Daniels lived for many years on his farm at Bakerton, this county, and was known throughout this section as an honest, upright man. His hearty, genial ways, his kindness of heart, his sincerity and liberality, gained for him a wide circle of friends who will deplore his death. When the present owner of the REGISTER bought this paper more than 21 years ago Mr. Daniels was among the first to give us his support and encouragement, and we have prized his friendship ever since. He thoroughly enjoyed reading his paper and always kept it paid up in advance. He sold his farm at Bakerton a couple of years ago to the proprietors of the lime works at that place and moved to Frederick, but he never lost his interest in his old friends in Jefferson county and frequently visited here. May he rest in peace.
