Daniels, P. C. - Prominent among the familiar personal landmarks of this vicinity is Mr. P. C. Daniels, a resident
of Addison since 1863, and for more than a quarter of a century local representative of standard and reliable insurance
companies. Mr. Daniels was born March 2, 1820, at Gorham, Ontario county. His years rest lightly upon him, so correct
has been his life, and so pure the blood bequeathed him from his English ancestry. He is one of a family which
once comprised thirteen children, of whom but two survive. The ancestors of Mr. Daniels, especially on the paternal
side, were somewhat noted for longevity, and his own father, Amasa Daniels, reached the age of ninety three. Mr.
Daniels received but a common school education, but has by close observation and personal research acquired wide
range of information, and has kept wholly in touch with men and events. His first wife was Sarah Wolverton of Owego,
and at her death in 1853 she left two children: Mrs. Catherine Dawson, of Toledo, O.; and Sarah, who died in infancy.
In 1854 he married his present wife, Mrs. Jane True. Mr. Daniels early gave his allegiance to the Republican party
and holds it unshaken and with unswerving fidelity. He is now filling his second term as justice of the peace.
He is a pillar of the local Baptist church, having been a member of that society from its organization, and a member
of the denomination for fifty four years, and for twelve years a member of the board of directors of the Baptist
Missionary Convention of the State of New York.
