Daniel Segur's prominent career in public affairs began shortly after his arrival in Toledo. He was one of the first Fire Wardens of the City of Toledo, appointed December 29, 1837, as well as an early Sheriff. A collection of Segur Family papers are owned by the Manuscript Collection of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library (Local History and Genealogy Department). There is also a Segur Avenue in Toledo.
The biographical sketch refers to his wife as Rosa L., who is probably Rosa L. Segur, the Toledo women's suffrage activist of the 1870s and 1880s, president of the Toledo Woman Suffrage Association, and lobbyist for an Ohio married women's property act in the late 1880s.
Information about Mr. Segur is to be found in the LDS records on line. However, entries state that his birth date was 1833, which is the year
of his arrival in Toledo. Information in the same database regarding his son Daniel Jr. states that the son was born
January 17, 1859 in Toledo, died June 11, 1917 in Toledo, and that his parents were Daniel Segur and Rosa L. Klinge. The "Jennette Segur" listed in the 1880
census with Rosa and Daniel Jr. couldn't possibly be Daniel Sr.'s mother, and would be Rosa's mother. "Fannie" of the biographical
sketch and "Jeny" of the 1880 census are probably the same person.
The site coordinators would appreciate receiving any additional information or corrections to the above to add to this profile of a native son of Herkimer and Oneida Counties who made out very well for himself after moving "Out West."
