I too am a decendent of Daniel who was b. in Berks Co. PA in 1799. He was an Indian agent in Ks. and d. in Highland 1889. I recently researched the library in Troy Ks and the cemetary there where he is buried and found good info. His father Daniel was from Philadelphia. Iwould like to have any info prior to this date.When I was a child I visited an old woman (cousin of my Grandmother Mattie Vanderslice Wyatt Kiefer)in Kansas who had a book of the family history which she read to us. This must have been in 1945 -50. That story told that the first Vanderslice baby washed up in a basket on the sea shore and was taken in by "royalty" and named Vanderslice (meaning from the sea).Has any one else heard this story?
