Daingerfield, who had been clerk at the Harpers Ferry arsenal in 1859 during John Brown’s Raid, came here when munitions and equipment were transferred to the Fayetteville Arsenal from Harpers Ferry in 1861. Maj. John C. Booth, commanding officer at the Fayetteville Arsenal, appointed him military storekeeper and paymaster. Daingerfield served in the 2nd Battalion Local Defense Troops, commonly referred to as the Arsenal Guard, and occupied the house with his wife Matilda and his four children. His son Elliott Daingerfield (1859-1932) was a well-known artist renowned for his landscapes and religious paintings. He left Fayetteville at age 21 to study in New York and Europe, later taught in Philadelphia, and summered for many years at Blowing Rock, N.C.
