Born in County Tipperary, Ireland.

Dan may have been a blacksmith in Texarkana.  I have been told he had 4 brothers : Patrick, Thomas, William (1840-84), and Joseph.4 sisters Delia, Mary, Anne & Bridget.

He allegedly arrived in NYC on May 11,1852 with his mother Nan, his sister Bridget, and Thomas & William.

They at one time lived in Honesdale, Texas Township, Wayne County, Pennsylvania. Looking for any information as to what happened to him.

Would like to help with your brickwall, however your request is for me to find answers with less information than what you have. If you do not have a WikiTree profile for the individual in question, perhaps another web address with this info.

Nan Delaney and 4 children arrived in NYC aboard the Western Star on May 11, 1852 from ballingarry, County Tipperary, Ireland by way of Queenstown, County Cork. They moved inland to Honesdale, Pa. Son Daniel went to Texas and became a blacksmith in Texarkana, son William stayed in Honesdale and operated a boat on the Delaware & Hudson Canal. William's son Thomas, an Erie Railroad conductor, moved to Port Jervis, NY in 1894, son Joseph became a glass cutter for Libbey Glass and settled in Toledo, OH, and son William was also employed by the Erie and settled in Hornell, NY. Oldest son Patrick was also on the Erie and lived in Deposit, NY, daughters Emma and Mary lived in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan.
