Daniel was born about 1805 in Switzerland, the son of Schwab and Barbera Unknown.
He has died but the date and place are unknown.
His wife was , who he married in ABT 1833. The place has not been found. Their three known children were John (1834-?), Jacob (1835-1894) and Frederick (c1837-1881).
A genealogist doing research for June, daughter of Erma Havlik had reason to think Daniel's mother's name was Barbera. She did have a question mark by the notation. I am only doubting this because of Passenger list (on Latter Day Saints site) lists two women with last name of Schwab ( ages 70 and 77). They could be aunts but would be likely that one was his mother. The names are listed as Anna, age 70 and Suzanne, age 77.
