General Notes: Husband - Daniel Brodhead Heiner Jr.


After availing him­self of the educational advantages of local institutions, he took a higher course of study at Meadville, PA, graduating from Allegheny College in 1879. Having decided upon the legal profession, he began reading law with E. S. Golden, of Kittanning, PA, and was admit­ted to the bar in the year 1882, beginning prac­tice immediately thereafter. For a number of years during the earlier part of his career he was engaged principally in public business as the incumbent of various civil positions. In 1886 he was elected district attorney, of Arm­strong County, serving as such for six years, two terms of three years each. In 1892 he was chosen to represent his district in Congress, and again had the honor of being reelected, holding the office for two successive terms. In 1897 he received the appointment, under Presi­dent McKinley, of United States district at­torney, for four years, at the end of which period he was appointed (again by McKinley) internal revenue collector for the Western dis­trict of Pennsylvania, giving eight years' service in that capacity. His legal practice thereafter occupied most of his attention. His principal business interest was in banking, and he was a director of the Armstrong County Trust Company and president of the First National Bank of Ford City, his acumen and foresight in financial matters being highly valued by his associates. Fraternally he held membership in several societies, including the Odd Fel­lows, Knights of Pythias and the Elks.
