Daniel Dailey, who is successfully engaged in farming in Center township, was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan,
on the 5th of December, 1862, a son of Jerry Dailey a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this work. When but five
years of age our subject was taken to Fremont, Nebraska, and attended the public schools there in. the pursuit
of an education. He remained at home until twenty years of age and then began his independent career. For four
years he worked on railroads in various states but at the end of that time returned to Nebraska and for six years
engaged in farming. Later he spent two more years in working in various places, after which he operated the home
farm until 1910, when he purchased his present farm on section 16, Center township, Saunders county. He owns two
hundred acres of good land and carries on general farming, his well planned work returning him a good income. His
place is well improved and everything is kept in excellent condition.
On the 17th of April, 1913, Mr. Dailey was married to Miss Allie Swart. In politics he is a stalwart democrat but
has confined his activity in public affairs to the exercise of his right of franchise. He is a communicant of the
Catholic church at Sand Creek, which fact indicates the principles which govern his life. He has made many friends
and all who have had dealings with him hold him in high esteem because of his ability and his integrity.
