The Daily Family
Phillip Daily (dailey) was a Revolutionary War Soldierand ser4ved as private in the 3rd MD regiment und Capt. Horation Cleggett, commanded by Co. Nathan Ramsey Feb. 1778.He was the son of Charles and Eleanor (Temple) Daily of Washington Co PA, but formerly of MD.The will of Charles Daily probated 12 Aug 1783 in Washington Co PA named his 6 sons Phillip, Charles,Jr,.Samuel, Nathan, George and John.Following the death of Charles,his widow and at least 3 of his sons migrated with other families to Louisville, KY. Records of that city show Charles jr, Phillip and John living there in 1789.Philip always said he was named after his grandfather Phillip and records are obtainable of Philip Daily owning land in Washington co PA where he, too had migrated.The marriage of Phillip and Mary Wise was nor recorded in Louisville un 2 Feb 1786, a clerical delay thatwas often the case at this early date. Following their marrriage, they lived at Fort Beargrass in Louisville before moving to Charleston IN.Here they acquired much land and became prosperous. On 1 Jan 1790 under land patents between John Clark of jefferson assignee of George Rogers Clark and Philip Daily of Illinois Grant sold to philip daily land n.w. side of OH to officers of ILL Regiment. 250 acres
Phillip and Mary wise daily are buried in Cemetary '74 in the Dupont area of the pwder plant of about 2500 acres in Clark Co IN. It is erronously called '54 on the map. the cemetary was named after section 74 of the Illinois Grant and is on land priginally owed by Phillip Daily.this land grant deed was signed by President James Madison in 1816.When I visited the cemetary to search for the graves, I could go about only under guard.I was jubilant to find the graves of Philip and Mary. They are marked with a single , very tall and beautiflul monument. One side reads

page 85 the Wise family
In the jefferson co Ky court house is the followinf marriage bond:
Phillip Daily to Mary Wise, Bondsman Vallentine Weis s(igned) in g(erman) 2-2-1786.David L. James, Judge of Charleston City Court, of Clark Co INgreat, great grandson of Philip and Mry wise daily shared many daily-wise fammily rcords with me many years ago.
Mary wise's mother was Katie Franz and her father valentine wize.they were married in Washington DC , then a fort.Katie Franz wise lived to be nearly 100 years old and is buried in 74 graveyard on what was the daily land, clark co. valentine wise is buried in KY between Middleburg KY and Charleston IN. Valentine and Katie franz wise's children were Jacob, David and Mary
Mary Wise was 12 years old when the family moved from MD.She remembered it well and often told Grandma Mary Shirley Daily all about it. She said her father owned a large farm and the king of England sent his men over and theytook all the stock save one cow. They destroyed everything they could lay their hands on, and then left.They returned, however, in a short time and dug up holes all over the land; in explanation they said they were looking for gold.Some of the holes were large enough to bury a house in.On this trip the men killed the soil for the family.they concluded it was useless for them to remain there any longer as everything they would make , the king would send and get.
Valentine Wise was a man of good education and had a fine mind.He possessed a number of fine large old books, which was rare in those days.People refered to these books as"whole chests of bookds."Mary Wise's famly lived in MD, PA, VA and KY.Mary wise's mother, Katie Franz was born on the Gernan side of the Rhine.In the Hall of Records at Annapolis Md, under baptisms of Frederick Co Md, is that of Valentine Weisz 8 Nov 1854, son of Daniel and and Margaret ( ) Weisz. Peter another son of Daniel and Margaret ( ) Weisz was baptized 2 Mar 1758.There may have been other children.At the request of Valentine wise, a deed was recorded 19 aug 1797. I must share another specific tradition give me by Grandmother Charlotte. She always claimed that Eleanor Daily's mother was a Wise from Powell's valley, VA and a niece of the Governor Wise of that state. however, the records of Governor Wiseshow no niece by that name. In lieu of the aformentiond date, the marriage bond of Philip daily to mary wise showing valentine wise wies her father as German, his birth record in the Md Hall of Records, the tombstone inscription of mary wise, and census records showing mary wise to be german, I fell that grandmother may have been mistaken.In defense of grandmothers memory, I have otherwise always been able to bring her stories into relation with historical facts.
I must also impart a perplixing entry in the records of Judge David L James.Mary Shirley ( born 1798-died 1897), wife of David Wise Daily, sr and daughter in law ofPhilip and Mary Wise daily sted in her later years that HER grandmother was Datie Franz of Pris, France.To clarify this, Mary Shirley claimed her husband's grandmother was hers. I would be well to use this last piece of information with caution
