Obituary of Daniel C. McVean, Esq.
(Grand Rapids Eagle - 28 Oct 1857

We are pained to have to announce the death of Daniel C. McVean, Esq., the Treasurer of Kent County. He died at his residence in this city, at 11 o'clock this A.M., of lung complaint.
Mr. McVean was formerly from Wheatland, Monroe Co., NY, and has been a resident of this county some ten years. He was a farmer by profession, and has ever been a prominent citizen in the agricultural ranks. While as a servant of the public in an official capacity, he has commanded to an unusual degree the fullest confidence of the entire community. And in him they cannot but feel that they have lost an honest citizen, a good officer, and a warm hearted friend.
The deceased was, we should judge, about 55 years of age, and leaves a wife and several children to mourn the loss of an affectionate husband, indulgent father and kind hearted protector.
There will be short funeral services at the late residence of the deceased, corner of Jefferson and Oakes streets, tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock, precisely, and at 10 o'clock the procession will start for his former residence and farm in Bowne. The relatives and friends, are all respectfully invited to attend.
