Daniel Crimlisk and his wife Celia and family of two sons and two daughters are known via the 1880 US census.
The spelling "Danel" is unique and is probably a simple error, in later records it is transcribed as "Daniel".

Daniel Crimlisk, age 50 was living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with his wife and eight children. The census records that Daniel and his wife had been married 26 years, and had 13 children 10 being alive at the time of the census.
It seems likely that the three children who died were all named "Elizabeth".

Notes: Daniel's age recorded in this census is inconsistent with later records.
"Danel" is almost certainly an accidentally shortened "Daniel".

A daughter "Frances, b.1891" has appeared in this census, it is liekly this is "Fannie b.1885". The information on the 1900 census indicated that a full complement of children had been established hence the view that the information for Frances in 1920 is incorrect.

4) One or both of these two statements must be incorrect.
