William Daniels, my 2nd great-grandfather, was born January 2, 1840, in Marion County, Missouri. He followed the Oregon Trail westward with his parents, Austin & Mary Daniels, in 1851. They were counted among the pioneers of Soap Creek, Benton County, Oregon.

He is listed in their online index, which states he was buried in a casket on May 27, 1924, in Row 1, Grave 4, Lot 1. "Block 17 Page 33" is also indicated. (His wife, Eliza, had been buried in Row 1, Grave 6S, Lot 1, on February 15, 1886).
