My grandfather was Guy Buford "Pete" Dailey of Westmoreland, Kansas.
father was Abner Prentice Dailey b. 1865 in Fremont County, Iowa. Abner's
father was John Dailey b. 1836 in Vermilion County, Illinois (m. Margaret
John's father, David Dailey (m. Elizabeth Sellers), was a native
Massachusetts born near Boston. I don't have a birth year. In 1841 David
& family moved from Vermilion County to Parke County Indiana, where son
John grew up. John moved to Pottawatomie County Kansas in 1859 and
remained there until 1852. He then moved to Fremont County Iowa until
1875, then went back to Pottawatomie County.
It seems that with the Parke County location and the name Abner in
there might be a connection but I don't have much else to go on. It seems
like David would have been born around the same time as your William &
