    Daniel Brugh

    Birth: Jul. 19, 1762
    York County
    Pennsylvania, USA
    Death: Dec. 26, 1825
    Botetourt County
    Virginia, USA

    Daniel served in the Revolutionary War in 1882 as a member of 8th Company, 1st Battalion, York Militia, under the command of Captain O'Blain. Sometime after his military service he married Elizabeth (surname uncertain), probably about 1784, and they ultimately produced twelve children. On 2 March 1791, Daniel swapped land in York County with Anthony Deardorff in exchange for land in Botetourt County, VA. Sometime between then and 10 October 1792, when he appears as a witness to a Botetourt deed, he moved his family to Botetourt County.

    His land at the time totaled 550 acres, on which he established a farm and built a saw mill. On 9 October 1805 he petitioned the Court and the following year built a grist mill. On 12 December 1809, Daniel was licensed to operate a tavern, which occupied the lower, or basement level of the building. Sleeping accommodations were maintained on the second floor, and the family occupied the third floor. In the early 1990s, Brugh's Tavern was disassembled and reconstructed in Explore Park in Roanoke, where it was operated as a restaurant until the Park closed for lack of funds in 2007.

    Daniel died on 26 December 1825. Family tradition holds that he was "bled" to relieve a wound, the "cure" and not the wound causing his death.
