DANIEL LEMMON NULTON

DANIEL LEMMON NULTON, attorney at law, of Freeport, though not engaged in practice continuously since his admission to the bar, has been very successful in his profession during the time he has devoted himself to its pursuit. He comes of a family prominently connected with legal procedure in Armstrong county, being the youngest son of the late Judge John Funk Nulton, for two terms associate judge, and who also served twice as county treasurer. His brother Barclay Nulton was a leading lawyer of Kittanning from the Civil war period until his death, in 1912.

John Funk Nulton was a prominent man in Pennsylvania for many years. He was a �War Democrat�, and during the Civil war was interested in recruiting the 103d Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry and the 78th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. He was acquainted with many of the leading men of his day, and a person friend and associate of Gov. Andrew G. Curtin. He was engaged in business as a contractor, doing most of the building in Kittanning after settling there, and was also very successful as a hotel-keeper in the borough. His death occurred at Kittanning in 1878. He married Margaret Rebecca Lemmon, who died in 1904, a daughter of Col. Daniel Lemmon, who served in the Black Hawk war. A longer account of the Nulton and Lemmon families appears elsewhere in this work.

Daniel Lemmon Nulton was born May 20, 1853, at Kittanning, and attended common school until his nineteenth years, later studying at Lambeth College, and at St. John's University, Haddonfield, N.J. Afterward he took up the study of law, and was admitted to the bar at Kittanning, Pa., in 1883. In 1885 he was appointed post office inspector, which office he resigned in 1888. From then much of his time was devoted to promoting the interests of the Democratic party, in which he has long been active and influential, and on seventeen different occasions he has attended State conventions of the party as a delegate. In 1911 he resumed the practice of law at Freeport, where he now makes his home.

On Jan. 23, 1875, Mr. Nulton was married at Pittsburgh, Pa., to Laura Galbraith, daughter of Rev. William Galbraith.
