Daniel E. Palmer was born in Delaware county, N.Y., January 10, 1812, and
died in Angola, May 10, 1890. In early life he removed to Adrian, Mich.,
where he commenced the study of law under Judge Tiffany, who was then at the
head of the Michigan bar and whose writings are still authority in the law.
After completing his studies, Mr. Palmer came to Indiana and commenced
practice in Noble county, being the first lawyer admitted to the bar in that
county. In the spring of 1840 he came to Angola, which has since been his
home. For more than thirty years he practiced in the courts of this and
adjoining counties, at times enjoying a large though never a lucrative
practice. In his day he was regarded as good authority in the law and his
opinions were well respected by the legal profession. In 1844 he was
appointed county auditor to fill a vacancy and held the position three years.
In 1849 and 1850 he was acting prosecutor in the circuit court. In 1852
he was elected prosecuting attorney of the circuit court.
