Daniel You may have been in Charleston, South Carolina as early as 1735 when an advertisement for a Chrisopher Webb states that he is next door to Mr. You. However, there were other You's in Charleston, so this may have not been Daniel. He was definitely in Charleston in 1744 as evidenced by an advertisement placed by him. Daniel became the 163rd member of the South Carolina Society in 1749. He appears to have died intestate at the end of that year or early the next year. Daniel marked his silver either D.YOU, DY or YOU.

Thomas You is thought to have been Daniel's son working between 1753 and c.1786. During the siege of Charleston in 1780, Thomas appears to have been the only silversmith who did not sign the petition addressed to General Lincoln requesting him to accept the British terms of surender. Thomas marked his silver with TY.

Both Daniel and Thomas You had at one time, several examples of their work in the Charleston Museum.
