JAMES G. DANIELS
Of sturdy Scotch blood, one of Corona's most esteemed citizens is James G. Daniels, who was born in Aberdeen, Scotland,
in 1865, and received his education and early training in the old coup try. At the age of twenty one years he decided
to come to America and seek his fortune. He landed in New York, but stayed in that city only two weeks, going from
there to Boston, Mass., where he lived for seventeen years. Before leaving his native heath he was united in marriage
with Miss Elizabeth C. Norval, a native of Scotland, and together they started for the United States to found their
home. Four children have been born to this union: William C., who was born in 1887 and is at present living, with
his family, in Los Angeles; Harry J., born in 1890, now living at home with his parents and employed in the grocery
business at Corona; Beatrice L., born in 1893, and living at home, having gained her education in the public schools
of Corona; and Fred J., who was born in 1900 and is now attending school.
While living in Boston, Mr. Daniels worked for a lead pipe manufacturing company. On coming to California the family
first settled in Los Angeles, where Mr. Daniels purchased a rooming house which in turn he traded for a grocery
store in Corona. This latter business was traded for an interest in a planing mill In addition to his lumber interests.
Mr. Daniels has taken up, under the desert act, three hundred acres of government land in Chuckawalla valley, on
which he expects soon to take out a patent. He is a man much respected in the community, as' he has made all that
he has by his own efforts and industry and he is a public spirited man, being ever ready to aid in movements for
the benefit of the community. He is a member of the Red Men of Corona. Politically he does not hold strictly to
any party tenets, but votes for the man he deems best fitted to serve the people. Mr. Daniels' mother is deceased.

reside in Wakefield, Mass.
