When Isaac Preston “Pet” Daniels was born in 1846 in Illinois, his father, Carlos, was 32 and his mother, Elizabeth, was 27. He had two brothers and three sisters. Isaac, or “Pet” as he was called, was the beloved younger brother of Julia Daniels Moseley. Pet lived on a ten-acre tract of land adjacent to the north of the Moseley’s original five-acres. Pet would later gift his property to Julia thus increasing the Moseley Homestead lands to their present extent. Pet suffered from a debilitating spinal problem, but never let his disability impact his way of life, instead ingeniously coming up with ways to be more mobile, such as a paddle boat that he used to get around on Tenmile lake. He died on April 5, 1909, in Baxter Springs, Kansas, at the age of 63, and was buried in Elgin, Illinois.
