• From Anonymous Author, A Memorial and Biographical Record of Iowa, Chicago: Lewis Pub. Co., 1896, 1262 pgs:

"Daniel J. Storm, who has taken a prominent part in developing the wild land of this region into a tract of fertility, and thereby aided in promoting the material welfare of Dallas county, was born in Muscatine county, Iowa, October 22, 1844, and is a son of Daniel Storm, a native of Ross county, Ohio. The paternal grandparents were George and Francina Storm, and their last days were spent in Keokuk, Iowa. The father of our subject, having attained to years of maturity, was united in marriage with Miss Matilda Bedwell, a native of Tippecanoe county, Indiana, and a daughter of James and Rachel Bedwell, who in an early day left their home in the Hoosier State and took up their residence in Iowa, their last days being spent in Louisa county.
"Our subject was therefore a worthy representative of two honored pioneer families, and early became familiar with the hardships and trials that fall to the lot of the early settler, for amid the wild scenes of the frontier he was reared to manhood. As soon as he was old enough to handle the plow he began work in the fields and throughout life has carried on agricultural pursuits, giving his father the benefit of his services through his boyhood and youth. He continued at home until twenty-seven years of age, when was celebrated an important event in his life, -- his marriage to Miss Anna Jones, who was born in Ross county, Ohio, and is a daughter of A. J. and Mary (Cruett) Jones, who were also born in the Buckeye State and came to Iowa about 1860. The father died in Louisa county, at the age of sixty-three, and his wife died in the same county, when forty-six years of age. Six children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Storm: Albert M.; Nellie E., who is married and has one child; Mary M., George C., Minnie L. and Ollie F. With the exception of the eldest daughter, all are still under the parental roof.
"For a year after his marriage Mr. Storm lived in Muscatine county, and then came to Dallas county, where he purchased 160 acres of wild land, and with characteristic energy began the development of a farm. He plowed and planted the tract, and in course of time the once almost useless prairie was transformed into highly cultivated fields, while the boundaries of the farm were extended by the additional purchase of 190 acres, making in all a valuable place of 450 acres. His first home was a little frame dwelling of 16x24 feet, to which he afterward added a 22-foot addition. He has now good improvements upon the place, -- well kept fences, the latest improved machinery, and his home is a valuable property. In connection with general mixed farming he is also successfully engaged in stock-raising.
"Mr. Storm, after attaining his majority, cast his first presidential vote for Horace Greeley, and has since allied himself with the Democratic party. His fellow citizens, appreciating his worth and ability, have frequently called him to public office, and he has filled various local positions in a most creditable and acceptable manner. He contributes to the support of both the Baptist and the Methodist Churches. Both Mr. and Mrs. Storm are charitable and benevolent people, and no worthy one is ever turned from their door empty-handed, while the poor and needy recognize the fact that in this worthy couple they have a stanch friend. The Storm household is a cultured abode, where hospitality and good cheer reign supreme. Mrs. Storm is a refined and estimable lady, and with her husband shares in the high regard of many friends."
