Daniel, his wife Mary, and their son Thomas, arrived in Philadelphia via the ship Chimborazo on 21 May 1855. First documentation to place him in Utah is the 1860 census where he appears in the household of his son, William Jones. His death was recorded in the Logan Ward record. It is uncertain if Mary and Thomas traveled with him to Utah.
Daniel likely traveled in the Horton D. Haight 1859 company with other family members but further research is needed to verify that.
