Jack Daniel, proprietor of the distillery at Lynchburg, Tennessee, was born in Moore County, in 1848. His father, Gallaway Daniel, came from North Carolina to Moore County when eight years of age and in later years followed tilling the soil as an occupation.

Our subject has always been a farmer, and in 1876 erected his distillery, which he began operating two years later, under the firm name of Daniel & Call, continuing thus five years. It has a capacity of fifty bushels per day and turns out some of the finest brands of “Lincoln County” whisky. Mr. Daniel is the owner of a large and productive farm, which he manages in connection with his distillery, and on which he raises large numbers of livestock.
