      The obituary was posted on the web by Meriah Mary Dennison on 26 October 1998. From the Odessa Wave-Times of April 1921: " Orren W. Daniels, old resident of Sebewa passes. Served through three years of Civil War. Lived in Sebewa since 1865. Leaves many friends. Orren W. Daniels was born near Albany, NY, Sept. 16, 1838, and died at his home in Sebewa April 1 7, 1921, at the age of 82 years, 7 months and 1 day. Early in his life he came to Michigan with his parents, first living at Lowell. His education was obtained in the district schools and a year in the Michighan Agricultural College. In the early part of the Civil War he resonded to his country's call by enlisting (in the Union Army) on October 9, 1862 in Company E. Sixth Michigan Cavalry. He was wounded in the Battle of the Wilderness May 6, 1864. When he was able to leave the hospital he obtained a furlough to return home, during which time he was married to Sarah Kinney of Portland, who preceded him in death nearly 12 years ago. At the e xpiration of his furlough, he returned to the service. After the Battle of Appomattox, his regiment, under General Custer, was detailed to the west to assist in quelling indian disturbances for the summer. He was honorably dischared at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Nov. 24 18(?) (perhaps 67)." When he returned home, he, with his wife, settled at once in a new farm in the woods in Sebewa, where he has since continuously resided, being one of the early pioneers of this section. He was the father of nine children, one dying in infancy, 8 living in the surrounding community, namely Cora E. at home, Sylvester C., Andrus W., Jay B., Tillotson O. Carrie B. Kimble, Ada S. Ingall and Lottie M. Kauffman. He also leaves five sisters, Mrs. Jane Miller of Grand Rapids and Mrs. Francis Lyon of Barryton, Mrs. Charlotte Steward of Lake Odessa, Mrs. Mary Drake of Sunfield and Mrs. Gracia Aldrich of Grand Rapids, besides 19 grandch ildren and many friends. He was converted to the Christian faith under the ministry of Rev. M. Donald, pastor of the Sebewa with which he immediately affiliated and has always been actively connected. In November he had a touch of pneumonia developing into a general breakdown in health, causing his death."
