Jack Daniels was one of 13 siblings fathered by Calaway Daniel and was the youngest of his mother's ten children. After Daniel's mum, Lucinda Cook Daniel, died, his father remarried and had many more babies. Jack Daniel's grandad, Joseph Daniel, immigrated from Wales. His Scottish wife, Elizabeth Calaway, also joined him to the United States. He was of Welsh, Scottish, English, and Scots-Irish descent. Daniel's dad died in the Civil War. He loathed his step-mother, and as a result, he fled away from home and was, essentially orphaned at a young age.
