Surname Saturday: DAILEY



The DAILEY name is generally considered to be of Irish origin, but immigration records at Ancestry also point to Great Britain and Germany as ports of departure. Due to lack of my research on this family line, it is unknown at this point from where my children's DAILEY roots originated. Alternate spellings include DAILY, DALY, and DALEY. If Irish, the origins are an Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Dálaigh, meaning "a descendant of Dálach," a personal name based on dál (modern: dáil), which itself means "meeting" or "assembly." The Republic of Ireland's parliamentary body is called the Dáil.


Stories and History:

Ahnentafel #54 - William DAILEY (c. 1794 - bef. 1880) - a variety of records indicate William's birthplace to be Indiana, Ohio, or Kentucky. In 1826, he married Hulda REDENBAUGH (c. 1808 - 1890), daughter of German immigrants. It's not known where they married, but the first of their 14 known children were born in Rushville, Rush Co., Indiana. In 1840, the family was found in Scott Twp., Montgomery Co., Indiana, and by 1849 they were located in Green Twp., Parke Co., Indiana. In 1851, however, they were in Wapelo Co., Iowa and in 1853, Fremont Co., Iowa. More research is definitely required on this family group!

Ahnentafel #27 - Mariah Emily DAILEY (1849 - 1935) - born in Parke Co., Indiana, she appears to be the youngest surviving child of her parents. In 1868 in Thurmon, Fremont Co., Iowa, she married George TURK, a.k.a. Henry LYTON (c. 1836 - 1874). They had two children and Mariah was pregnant with the third when George/Henry died. Mariah then married German immigrant John Christopher KLINDER (1850 - 1933) the following year. They had six more children and eventually relocated to Hydro, Caddo Co., Oklahoma, where they lived out the rest of their days.

Ahnentafel #13 - Emma Alice LYTON (1874 - 1959) - born in Thurman, Fremont Co., Iowa, she was raised by her mother and step-father in that community with her six younger half-siblings. About 1891, she married Albert Francis CHAPLIN (1868 - 1946) in Iowa and begin a life of six children and constant migration: Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, with travels back to Iowa, Kansas, and Oklahoma. She died in Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon.

Ahnentafel # 6 - Forrest "Frank" L. CHAPLIN (1901 - 1977) - born in Yankton, Yankton Co., South Dakota, he came out West in a covered wagon as a boy with his family. He married Leona Mary MARTIN (1906 - 1993) in 1925 in Vancouver, Clark Co., Washington. They had three children. Frank died in Othello, Adams Co., Washington.

Ahnentafel #3 - my children's paternal grandmother (living)

Ahnentafel #1 - my children's father (living)
