Thanks so much for your terrific responses.This really is a puzzle. In Samuel Bates PA Regimental Histories,as well as Historical Data Systems,"Daniel" is the only Benfer listed.
I also have a revolver with Daniel's name, rank and regiment engraved on it.
It took a good deal of searching, but The National Archives service & pension records were not located in the regular files but finally in the medical files under David Benfer.
I agree with your analysis of the CW draft registration (which I also have a copy of).
