  • The following biographical sketch of Daniel M. Dulany appeared  in The History of Marion County, Missouri, by E. F. Perkins, 1884, at p. 602:   
    This enterprising gentleman is a son of Joseph S. and Sarah (Maupin) Dulany.  His father was a native of Georgia and his mother of Kentucky. He was born in Richmond, Kentucky, July 27, 1816. In the fall of this same year his parents moved to what is now Howard county, Mo.  In 1836 he went to Monroe county, where he engaged with his brother, W. H. Dulany, in the manufacture of tobacco.  He continued this business up to 1862.  From 1846 to 1848 he was deputy sheriff of Monroe county, and from 1848 to 1852 was sheriff of the same county.  For four years he was justice of the county court.  In 1862 he went to Quincy, Illinois, where he engaged in the tobacco business, and in 1867 he came to Hannibal, where he became a member of the lumber firm of Dulany & McVeigh.  This firm is now the Empire Lumber Company, and Mr. Dulany is the vice-president.  He is a director of one of the banks, and president of the Hannibal Board of Trade.  Besides these he holds several other prominent offices, and is one of Hannibal’s most energetic and enterprising citizens.  He is a member of the Christian church and superintendent of its Sunday school at Hannibal.  He has been married four times: In 1841, to Miss Cynthia Maupin, of Paris, Mo.; she died in 1843.  In 1846 to Miss Mary Thompson, of Monroe county, Mo.; she died the same year.  In 1851, he married Miss Ann G. Craig, of Monroe county, Mo., who died in 1853.  He was again married in 1856, to Mrs. Mary Williams, widow of Dr. S. P. Williams.  By this union he has one child.  In all of the public trusts confided to him Mr. Dulany has never been found unfaithful; in all the affairs of life he has borne a most honorable part, and now he is reaping his reward in the possession of a quiet, approving conscience, in the delights of a beautiful and comfortable home, and in the confidence, respect and esteem of the community that knows him best.
