John=Daniel?
I made the same assumption, but it looks like John might be the father of this Richard. We are looking for the son of Daniel.

      Name: Christiana Hill
      Gender: Female
      Burial Date: 7 Jan 1907

      Well the 1869 death is Richard's sister, age 1.  But the 1907 one is age 83.

      John is presumably Daniel's brother.  But nothing says the grandson Richard is John's son.

      First question that occurred to me was, if the parents disappeared, what happened to the kid?  Did he disappear as well, or was he raised by somebody else?  It's significant that he married a local girl.

      I guess grandma is the answer to that question.

      Maybe Richard's parents just split up.
