Daniel Newberry was born about 1786* in Gloucester, New Jersey to William and Sarah Newberry. He was their second son. [1]

Daniel Newberry married Mary Thomas on February 20, 1812. Their wedding record notes they were residents of Galloway Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey. The marriage was completed by Joseph Sharp. [2]

There were at least four related Newberry families that left Gloucester County, New Jersey, in 1818 and migrated to Clermont County, Ohio: 1.) William and Sarah (Raziner) Newberry, a son, 2.) Elias, husband of Nancy Henderson; another son, 3.) Daniel Newberry, husband of Mary Thomas, and their four children, Sarah A., Margaret, Edward Thomas, and Christiana; and William's brother, 4.) Daniel and Elizabeth (Smallwood) Newberry and their family; plus the younger sister of William and Daniel, Susannah, who was not yet married. [3]

"They settled in Tate Township, near the present town of Bethel, Ohio, located about 10 miles north of the Ohio River. This was the region known as the "Jersey Settlement" because so many families from New Jersey settled there. It was in the bleak surroundings of a primitive frontier environment that the Newberry families began anew. The initial back-breaking job of building cabins and clearing the land for cultivation had to be rapidly completed for basic survival. No doubt, the first year brought great hardship upon them as they worked hard to establish their new homes and work their land to fruition. The 1820 Census confirms that Daniel Newberry and his family were residents of Tate Township, Clermont County, Ohio, and that he was a farmer." [3]

*Daniel Newberry is thought to have been born in 1786. He was recorded as being sixty-four in the 1850 Pike Township, Brown County, Ohio census and seventy-four in the 1860 census for the same location. [4] [5]
