DANELS, John Daniel, soldier, born in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1786; died there in 1856. He became a captain in the Colombian navy in 1818, and served the republican cause in South America as commander of a squadron, by fitting out vessels, and by his credit as a rich man. When the Republic of Colombia was established, he returned to the United States, and gave up his claims for money due for his services, for supplies provided by him for the Revolution of 1818, for expenses incurred by his three ships in the blockade of Cumana in 1821, for the use of his three ships in the blockade of Puerto Cabello and in guarding La Guayra, and fox" the expenses of a journey to the United States to raise funds for the sloop-of-war " Bolivar." The executive power of Colombia gave him a vote of thanks, and the congress of Venezuela in 1845 decreed that his name should have an honorable place as captain of the navy in the military list of the republic.
--His son, Simon Bolivar Daniel Danels, was consul for Venezuela, stationed at Baltimore, Maryland, for many years.
