DANIEL HAYES, fine trotting stock, Muscatine; is a native of Washington, Conn., and is a son of Rev. Gordon Hayes and Mary Fassett Hayes; his father was a congregational Minister; Daniel was brought up in Connecticut, and attended school there; when 18 years of age, he came West and entered Knox College, at Galesburg, Ill., and graduated in the class of 1863; after graduating, was engaged in business in Chicago for a time, but, having a taste of stock-raising, he came to Muscatine, and since then he has given his attention to raising fine horses---Hambletonians and Bashaws; he is acknowledged to be one of the best judges of the qualities and points of a good horse, and has an enviable reputation as a horseman, to such an extent that he frequently has orders to use his own judgment in selecting fine horses for a customer before the purchaser has seen them; his farm is finely located, adjoining the city limits of Muscatine. Mr. Hayes married Miss Alice C. Warfield Nov.26, 1873; she is a native of Muscatine and a daughter of the late David R. Warfield, one of the earliest settlers of this county; Mr. and Mrs. Hayes have one daughter---Mary Lillian.
