@if you accept the DAR Bible records - at the time of pension application he was married.

There are many possible theories, one that Daniel's family moved to the safety of Philadelphia area where he was born in Chester County, as Indians were on war path at this time, or maybe they were just new immigrants and he was born in route. One thing I do know of the family I have followed; when civilization became too much for them, they moved to frontier areas.
