"At the age of 21, Charles Penniman Daniell sailed around the Horn from Boston to San Francisco in 1849–1850, and operated a hardware store in the gold rush metropolis for three years.

From left to right: “Eddy” (likely Edward, his brother), Sarah (his mother), William (“Willie,” his brother), Josiah (his father), Lucetta (his sister), and (grandmother) Daniell. "
