Daniel Teems was born in Georgia about 1842, He was the son of Lucy and Daniel Teems. Both parents were born in North Carolina. In 1860 he was living at home with his parents in Tallulah, Rabun County, Ga, along with five siblings. He was a farmer and his father owned real estate valued at $1,500 and personal property valued at $439.

Daniel Teems was married before he enlisted in May 1864. He enlisted at Conscript Camp Georgia. He was wounded and captured during the battle of Monocacy, Maryland, fought on July 9th, 1864, during Gen. Jubal Early's raid on Washington D.C. He was first treated at a Federal hospital in Fredrick, but was then sent to the USA General Hospital at Baltimore.

His wound was described as "slightly wounded in the right thigh", caused by a minnie ball and simply treated with a dressing. Today it's hard to imagine dying from such a slight wound as this is described, but his condition got worst and he died on October 29th, 1864. He is buried at Loudon Park National Cemetery, Baltimore City, Maryland.
