Loss

Daniel "died at Mare Island, Cal." on August 10, 1909… but unable to find any further details. The Register of Alumni gives only his date of death.

He is buried in Michigan.

Other

He and several others of his party were nearly killed in a train wreck while ashore in Peru. He was stationed aboard Washington (Armored Cruiser No. 11).

Memorial Hall Error

Daniel's name is spelled "Mahoney" in Memorial Hall; however, it is spelled without the "E" in Lucky Bag. He was an editor of the Lucky Bag. (It is also spelled without an "E" in the Register of Officers and on his headstone.)
