     Encyclopedia & History of Sangamon Co., Vol. 2, Pt. 2: Born in Germany, Daniel was brought to MD by his family in 1797, then moved soon after to KY. His father died young and Daniel was "bound out to a man named Daniel Spore till he was of age." Upon moving to Loami (1825), "in the fall, camped out for about two weeks, when they purchased a claim of eighty acres from an Indian. Mr. Jacobs paid $40 for the land which contained a small cabin, and into this the family moved late in the same fall." Money being gone, they lived mostly on wild game till he "procured" a load of corn from a Mr. Black who lived on Sugar Creek. In the next year, Mr. Jacobs cleared 5 acres, which he planted the following spring. Improving the farm over the years, he built a house in 1831.
    "Following the general rule of early settlers, he located in the edge of the timber, but afterward bought forty acres of prairie land. This he broke with six yoke of oxen and an old wooden mold-board plow. The forty acres which he improved in 1832 was the first prairie land broken in this part of the county, and people came from ten to fifteen miles distant to see the operation. The prairie grass was as high as the head of a man on horseback.
The year of the 'deep snow' was one of much suffering for this family, as their cabin was almost covered with snow for a time. The few fences had been completely covered during the notable fall of snow, which began December 28, 1830."
According to the Portrait & Biographical Album, the trip to Illinois was accomplished with Daniel driving a four-horse team and Charlotta riding horseback with one child before her and one behind. Son James recollected the conversion of an old log cabin into a schoolhouse, with seats made out of unhewn timber, supported on round wooden pins.Encyclopedia & History of Sangamon Co., Vol. 2, Pt. 2: Born in Germany, Daniel was brought to MD by his family in 1797, then moved soon after to KY.
