I am searching for information on the Daniels Cemetery which is no longer in use. Part of this cemetery is located behind the Parkway Manor Care Center in Arlington CO. the other part is behind a residence off of Olds Drive & Kimble Count in Fairfax CO. The only information that Fairfax County could give me was that when the residence was built ca 1950/60 the owner told Fairfax county that the graves had been moved. Where? They don't know. Does anyone know anything about this cemetery?Who could I contact in Arlington CO. to inquire about it? I am researching my husbands line. His g-grandfather, Joseph Daniels lived at Fairfax county House, Falls Church Twp., Fairfax CO. & at Bailey's Cross Roads ca 1860/1880 possibly till early 1900's.
We need to get together!!! I am related to the Reynolds family that is burried in that Cemetery. I have researched it myself. Family story is that the adjoining neighbor removed them. The Cemetery was part of the James Reynolds farm & used by the family. I believe the county calls it the "Daniels Cemetery" because "Uncle Bill" (William Daniels who married Elsie Reynolds) owned the lot next to it for many years. I believe the stones were removed after he died. There is some thought that the bodies were moved but I've found nothing to confirm that in the county records. There is still a relative that lives close to it! There are many members of our family that live local to it and wish to solve the mystery as well!!!!
Wow, what a story! But can't say I am suprised with the information about the cemetery. I have been researching my husband's Daniels line for About 8 years. I have hit a real brick wall.
While we were visiting in MD this summer we went to the Fairfax CO., VA mapping office. Not the one where the maps are sold but the place where they research & print the maps. The girl that helped us was really nice and showed us the map of that area. She said that the person who was in charge of that part hadn't finished. This was the same answer I received about a year ago. Different girl same office! <grin>
We went to the location of the cemetery. Didn't walk through the owners property but did go behind it to the Nursing Home and since there was no fence walked around that portion. I truly believe that at least some of the bodies were not removed because I can't find a burial place for my husband's great-grandfather Joseph Daniels. My husband's family wasn't big on passing down family history like mine has always been so it has been hard to trace them with any success. I have to assume that the Uncle Bill you mentioned is in some way related to my husband's line.
His grandfather was Horace Wilbur Daniels b. 4 Apr 1871 at Bailey's Crossroads. Family history relates that his father's name was Joseph Daniels. I found this

I have Horace Daniels pension file. He was in the Spanish American War. So I know something about he & his family. His grandson told me that he enlisted twice. The second time they wouldn't let him re-enlist so it is said that he used his best friend's last name which was Cleveland. I can't put my hands on that letter so I'll have to check to see what given name he used.
Happy to hear from you and you can contact me at my e-mail address. I'd like to exchange info with you. With both of us working on this maybe we can find some answers.
I sent an email to confirm your address. There is so much to tell & exchange. I have been busy collecting since your reply!! Please feel free to contact me too!! Cindie

Re: William O. Daniels, Jr.
Yes he is. I believe he was born 11 November 1883. His wife was a "Elsie" ________. I have found more than one William Daniels married to an "Elsie".
William Oliver Daniels, Jr. children according to court records were: Clarence Daniels, Vivian Daniels m. ____ Shifflett, Helen Daniels m. _____ Lepley, and Irene Daniels who married a ____ Smith.
I was wondering if you are still doing research on the Daniels family. Don't know if we are related, I have seen the post and I am related to the John Daniels that lived next to the Cleveland family. They actually married into the Cleveland family. My grandfather was lecher Daniels mother was Fannie Daniels. He had a daughter Amanda that married into the Cleveland line.
I have been stuck on a lot of my research and am looking everywhere I can to break the wall.
