Daniel Webster Longfellow was born April 14, 1852 in the village of St. Anthony Falls, Minnesota Territory to Jacob and Jane (Getchell) Longfellow. He worked on the family farm and attended school in winter. He later taught country school, worked in a bakery and in a grocery store.

Longfellow was headed to the Black Hills gold fields in 1876 when he stopped in Bismarck and worked for a few days at the J. W. Raymond store. Raymond sent him up the Steamer Josephine to manage the trading store at Fort Berthold, which he did until 1880. On June 4, 1879 he married Myra C. Calhoun,  the Grosventres teacher at Fort Berthold Agency. In 1880 he was a census enumerator. The 1880 census shows him to be a boarder with Charles Lemon Hall along with his wife Myra C. and three month old son Henry A. In another household lived a teamster, 19 year old Ansel Longfellow, who may have been a some relation because both he and Daniel’s parents were born in Maine.  In 1880 the family moved to Fargo and then Minneapolis, Minn. where he started a retail grocery store. He died March 16, 1943 in Hennepin County, Minn.
