Daniel Van Tuyl - one of the most remarkable men among the early
settlers of Cass County, was "Uncle Dan" Van Tuyl. He was born
in New Jersey March 13,1796. His father died in his youth and with his
mother he moved to Pennsylvania, and then about 1816 he moved to Geauga
County, Ohio, and in the fall of 1835 he came to Cass County and settled
on the farm now owned by Henry Hanson, in Jefferson. He left six
children to cherish the memory of a truly remarkable man.
He was nearly 84 years of age, and had never tasted liquor or
used tobacco in any shape in his long life. Another commendable habit,
from which he never varied, was always to pay his debts either before or
at the time they were due. His death occurred January 20,1880.

Among the early residents can be counted Daniel Van Tuyl, who was born in New Jersey, and moved from there to Lake County, and from there here, his method of locomotion being by horse team. Accompanied by his family of four children, July 26 he arrived in Edwardsburg, and occupied a schoolhouse until he purchased eighty acres of Abner Tharp, in Section 27. He departed this life January 20,1880, aged eighty-four years. With him, his word was considered as good as his bond.
