    I found another that newspaper report, I have no idea why I didn't have those. Maybe I never searched for his death in british papers. DoB was different but sure it is same person as death is same.

    Thank Elaine

    Presumably you have the findagrave link for the 1925 grave in Kansas. You could try contacting the cemetery and see if they can give you a DOB to be more certain. But you say 1854, and the grave marker says 1853. In the 1920 census, he was a "roomer" - makes me think he didn't have family who knew him, and friends an authorities may not have had exact info like - DOB, names of parents. The latter usually appears in DCs of that era, but, as usual, only as known to the informant.

    You can order the 1925 DC from vitalchek:

    It doesn't look like Ancestry has KS wills, or at least none show up in the search. FS wiki says:
    In most counties in Kansas, probate records have been kept by the county judge. They include wills, inventories, claim registers, legacy records, inheritance records, and dockets. The records are available at the county courthouse.

    Oh, look! FS has Shawnee probate records in your time frame online! but not indexed, except as it was indexed at the time. left as the labor of love that it is:
    https://www.familysearch.org/search/...tory%20Library

    You would need to start with the third film "Probate court indexes: v. 3 1886-1926 v. 4 1895-1901 v. 5 (p. 1-337) 1901-1904" to find which Probate book you would need to search, then search that probate book.

    FS has a wiki about resources. One other possibility would be an obit. You'd have to find a local paper and search it (if it's online)

    Good luck, and happy hunting!
    I can't see anything obvious - will have another look tomorrow, I guess he is not guaranteed to be in them, can't quite decide if they stopped around 1925

    Wow - that is great, will have a look through the Devon records and see I can get a better birth date.

    ooh thank you, will have a look through links.

    I did see another Daniel Dayman on another census with parents in US, so need to make sure it is my Daniel death. Did look through the papers the other day when they were free, and all I found was a Daniel Dayman that was picking up his post at the post office!

    Another possibility - he died in a different place, but was buried in Kansas.

    started a topic Daniel Dayman

    Daniel Dayman

    Born 1854 in Hartland, Devon and may have died in 1925 Topeka, Shawnee County, Kansas.

    I have a few records in the US (1889 ship Gallia, census in 1920 and 1915) and can see that he is a Millwright. My Mum said that Uncle Dan left money, but I don't think it could be right if he died in 1925.

    I am not so good on US records as don't have WW ancestry, is there any place that I could look without subscription? Welcome advice on searching.
