In 1771, Daniel was apprenticed to Jonas Chamberlain, of Sadsbury Twp., Lancaster
Daniel was a tanner and a farmer. When all of his brothers were of legal
age, Daniel purchased from them 66 acres of his father's farm, these 66 acres being
the eastern portion of the farm, nearest St. David's, Pa. Daniel added to his land by
purchases from others. He constructed a tannery on the property sometime after 1783.
Daniel kept a tollgate on the Lancaster turnpike (Rte. 30), which ran through the
original Maule property. On his property, Daniel built a stone house in the 1790's. It
later was used as the parsonage for the Presbyterian Church in Wayne, Pa., but it no
longer stands. After his death, Daniel's executors sold the land for $6,826; it
eventually became part of the Askin tract on which Wayne was developed (see lE9).
Hannah's father married Daniel's mother Zillah after Hannah's mother and
Daniel's father had died; thus Daniel and Hannah were step-brother and step-sister
and grew up together. Hannah has been described as a "valuable woman" and was
much concerned, as was Daniel, for the welfare of her children. Daniel and Hannah
had three children:
Elizabeth Atmore was raised a Methodist and had become a member of the Religious
Society of Friends before marrying Daniel.
