    Daniel bought his land April 11 1794 from James McNulty by deed of conveyance.
    A Patent deed was obtained 3 Dec 1812. [Deed book H, No. 8, p. 369 Franklin Co., PA]. This tract was called "Belfast". Daniel also purchased "Smith's Retirement" on February 2, 1795 from Abram Smith. "By public outcry, it was sold by Jacob Snively, administrator for DanielMowen, desc., to John Lecron [son in law] Sept 27, 1824. John Lecron then sold this land to his son, Simon."This property is partly in AntrimTwp. and partly in Washington Twp., Franklin Co., Pa.

    Daniel Mowen, Jr. was a farmer per the 1800/ 1807/ and 1810 Franklin County, Pennsylvania county census. His date of death comes from the Letters of Administration issued Mar 24, 1819 in Franklin Co., Pa. His wife was not named.
