Biography*   From the History of Butler County, Pennsylvania, 1895.

[p. 1113-1114]

DANIEL FIEDLER, oldest in the family of Jacob FIEDLER, was born upon the farm settled by his father, in Jackson township, Butler county, August 19, 1828. His primary education was obtained in the common schools, and he finished his studies at Columbus College, Columbus, Ohio. After his father's death he assisted his mother in conduction the hotel at Harmony, until her second marriage in 1845, when he engaged in various occupations until 1851. He then purchased a farm in Cranberry township, lived upon it six years, and in 1861 he bought his present homestead, which then contained sixty-eight acres. He has since added thereto 175 acres, erected a substantial brick house, and made other good improvements. Mr. FIEDLER entered politics when a young man, being a Whig until the formation of the Republican party, when he joined that organization, and was one of its active and leading members for many years. After filling nearly all of the township offices, he was elected associate judge in 1871, and filled that office until 1878. In 1884 he was a delegate to the State Convention in the interest of James G. Blaine, was a member of the county committee for years, but has finally retired from taking any active part in politics. In connection with his farm, he has been engaged in coal mining thereon for nearly forty years. Mr. FIEDLER married Magdalene, daughter of Jonas ZIEGLER, and has five children living: Jacob; Jonas; Dr. D. W.; Benton, and Louisa, wife of George WALKER. He and wife are members of the Lutheran church, and he is recognized as one of the representative citizens of Butler county.3

News/Obit* 3 May 1903  FIEDLER HOME BURNED
Charles Lockhart, of Pittsburgh, Recently Paid $12,000 for the Estate

Butler, May 2 - The residence of Judge Daniel H. Fiedler, deceased, one of the most pituresque and historical homes in Butler county, located in a grove overlooking the town of Harmony, was destroyed by fire this morning. The disaster was caused by a spark from a chimney falling upon and igniting the roof. The place had recently been bought by Charles Lockhart, of Pittsburgh, for $12,000. The insurance amounts to $3,000. Mrs. Fiedler and her daughter were the only ones at home and very little of the furniture was saved. Among the articles burned were a fine gold watch and diamond ring belonging to Miss Field.
