parents Samuel and Molly

Inv included 1 handsaw $1, 2 fine saws $1, lot of Cooper’s and Joiners Tools $3, grindstone 50c, shoemaker’s bench tools and lasts 25c, broad axe $1

The CT / VT Daniel was listed in the 2nd tier due to his cooper and joiner tools only being worth $3, the same as his three saws. The Daniel from Providence was listed in 1st tier because he’s ID’d as a housewright from a family of housewrights / carpenters … there’s also the family connections to Joseph Fuller, toolmaker.
