"Pope, Daniel - Farmer and stock-raiser, Sec. 4, P. O. Knoxville. Was born in the county of Sangamon, Illinois, April 18, 1828. His parents were John and Margaret, natives of Kentucky, and early settlers of Illinois. In 1848 the family removed to Iowa, locating in Jefferson county, from whence, after a residence of one year, came to Marion county. Mr. John Pope died September 7, 1879 and Mrs. Pope in 1873. Thus passed away two of the pioneers who took an active part in the opening and developing of the county. The subject of the sketch was married May 16, 1853 to Miss Mary Jane Adams, a native of Fayette county, Ohio, daughter of Charles and Maria Adams. By the union they have five children: Charley Westley, O. Kella, Margaret J.A., Samantha and James. In August 1862, he enlisted in company G, Fortieth Iowa Volunteer Infantry; was honorable discharged in the autumn of 1865. His farm consists of 120 acres, and he makes a speciality of stock-raising, and does a trade in that line that will compare with any in the neighborhood. Mr. Pope is closely identified with the growth and prosperity of the township and is numbered among its live and substantial agriculturists."
