Haven't located any documents that have Daniel's parents names. Have a ship entry that lists what may be siblings, but it only shows first initials and the name Flott (ages are close to Daniels and arrival date in Baltimore was the same - however, somehow he lost contact with these family members). On this document it lists Germany as place last lived. I have just mailed away for a document that may pin point his place of birth but will have to wait and see if it shows his birth place and parent names. His life in America is well documented, but so far nothing from the homeland has been located nor a ship name.
