Southern Indiana Daily's

 

 

Special thanks to my contributors of photos, articles and their own special flare to this and other pages throughout my web pages, for without their help, these pages would not be possible.  Patti Davidson-Peters, David F. James, Jaque Owens and Carrie Daily .

 

 

 

My ancestors originated (as far back as I can trace) from NY, PA, MD, and VA areas. I suspect that they actually came from Dutch Wales but have not been able to prove that. They left MD and traveled to KY. After remaining in KY for several years, some of the Daily's moved on to Southern Indiana, Clark County to be exact. The Daily descendants became prominent citizens of the once somewhat savage territory becoming Senator and Sheriff, making names for their future descendants in the history of the Civil War and the Mexican War.

**These Census records were obtained several ways.  However,
Census records are free to the public in Libraries.  I am a census
transcriber volunteer.  Volunteers are needed for all states
and many, many counties in each state.  In order for these records
to be free on the internet, please volunteer to be a transcriber.
You may click on the "
Volunteers" button at the bottom of this
page under "
Here are some of my favorite websites" to choose
 the state and county you would like to volunteer to transcribe and
follow the instructions for transcribers.  Transcribing is not free,
 however it is a fulfilling feeling to know you are helping other
researchers get the information needed to find their ancestors.

THANK YOU FOR VOLUNTEERING IN ADVANCE

Mary Day Mathews Daily Story

This is a story of a little girl of 7 years old losing her mother in childbirth and
her life thereafter.  It's a very informative story, giving an image of the
way life actually was for some of our ancestors moving to a somewhat
savage area.  The pages are in Mary's own handwriting and was written
some 50-60 years ago.  None of the spelling or language was changed.
