The Daniel SIGLER household appears in the 1870 and 1900 census of Elwood, Madison Co., IN. Daniel was my maternal third-great granduncle, the husband of Minerva PIERCE, and the son of Daniel and Elizabeth (SHANK) SIGLER.
In the 1870 census, Daniel was a 27 year old Physician, born in Indiana, with a personal estate valued at $250. His wife, Minerva, was aged 22 and born in Indiana. They had a daughter, aged 1, whose name appeared illegible to me. More research needs to be done to determine what her name was.
