    Potter County Enterprise newspaper article, on or about Feb. 13, 1963, celebrating the 92nd birthday of George W. Daniels (saved by Martha J. [Daniels] Hurst):

    "Pictured above is a remarkable man. He first saw the light of day in Bingham Township on a February day, 92 years ago. Joseph Daniels and his good wife were delighted on that winter day when a son arrived to cheer their pioneer home. He may not have been a beautiful baby, in the eyes of the settlers in the sparsely peopled neighborhood, but his mother loved him and so did his dad.

    "Early in life he developed a keen sense of humor, and a look at his eyes today reveals that after all the years that characteristic still lights his face. Many a time it has saved the day when the traveling was rough.

    "While his name is George W., his middle name is not Washington and he will be quick to so inform you George Warren Daniels is the full handle.

    "Some 60 years ago he was elected register and recorder of Potter County and he has since resided here except for three or four years in Kansas. He served two terms in office.

    "From 1923 to 1957 he was one of the owners of the Enterprise, and you may be sure that the force at this office rejoices in his longevity, is delighted that he is in excellent health and still able to stroll about town when weather conditions permit. His good wife passed away in 1954 and since then he has resided in the home of his daughter and her husband, Senator and Mrs. James S Berger. His son Joe Daniels is an attorney residing at Rumson, N.J.

    "Patriarch George received our greeting alon with those of many other friends on his birthday - Feb.13."
