DANIEL BARRETT is the son of Jesse and Margaret (Curry) Barrett, natives of West Virginia and Pennsylvania, both of English descent. His father located in Highland County, Ohio, in 1805, and was surveyor of that county for twenty one years. He came to this county in 1851, locating in Liberty Township, where he remained until his death. The subject of this sketch was born September 12, 1823, in Highland County, Ohio, where he remained until he was twenty eight years of age. He spent his youth working on the farm, and received a good common school education. He came to this county with his parents in 1851, and received a farm of forty acres. He has since added to this, until now he has 290 acres of the best land in the county, with all the modern improvements. He is an energetic, wide awake farmer, and has accumulated his property through his own efforts. He was married, September 22, 1847, to Miss Hannah Chandler, daughter of Eli and Mary (Homer) Chandler, natives of Pennsylvania, and of German and English descent. Four children crowned this union; William C., John C. (deceased), Roseann Williams and Mary E. Manring. Mr. Barrett cast his first vote with the Whig party, but has since voted the Republican ticket. In the fall of 1878, he was elected County Commissioner and served in that capacity three years. He is one of the party's most active workers and he and wife are identified with the Society of Friends.
