United States Army, active and retired lists, 1 January 1950, page 472]

Obituary and Death Notice
SALISBURY -- Colonel (retired) George Doan Rehkopf passed peacefully away Saturday morning in Salisbury, NC, at age 86. Son of Colonel Ned B. Rehkopf (U.S. Military Academy, class of 1902) and maternal grandson of Brigadier General James Brailsford Erwin (USMA 1880), Rehkopf was born at Ft. Leavenworth, KS, on October 19, 1919. As the member of a military family, travel and reassignment were frequent and resulted in five different elementary and three high schools. He received an appointment to West Point and entered in the summer of 1938 as a member of the Class of 1942.
Upon graduation Rehkopf was assigned to the 30th Infantry Division (Old Hickory). By January of 1944 Captain Rehkopf commanded I Company of the 119th Infantry, 30th Division, on its way to England for the invasion of France. The 30th Division was one of the follow-on divisions to the initial beach assault at Omaha Beach. On the 30th of June, Rehkopf was wounded by German artillery fire and evacuated to England. After recuperation, he returned in time for the Battle of the Bulge and was wounded a second time in late February of 1945 during the Roer River crossing. His decorations included the Silver Star for valor and two Purple Hearts.
After the war Rehkopf returned to the states and was assigned to Army Intelligence in the Pentagon. During the latter phase of this assignment, Rehkopf was transferred to the National Security Agency and was commander of a decoding division with over 125 staff. What followed was the somewhat normal series of military schooling, troop assignment, and further Pentagon duty. Delightful assignments in Paris from 1952 to 1955 and Puerto Rico from 1961 to 1964 resulted in pleasant experiences and a much-improved golf game.
After finishing the War College he was assigned as the Commanding Officer of the newly formed 199th Light Infantry Brigade at Fort Benning in 1966. Late that year the 199th shipped to Vietnam with Rehkopf as the Deputy Commander. Upon returning from Vietnam, his final assignment was to the Artillery School at Ft. Sill as Senior Associate Arms Instructor, retiring in January of 1969 to become a stock and commodities broker in Columbus, GA. On reaching age 62 he fully retired to the golf course in order to complete his series of 7 holes-in-one -- all, he claimed, with little or no practice.
At the beginning of his career, on November 27, 1943, he married Helene Louise Nye, daughter of Wilbur S. Nye (USMA 1920). Their first child, a daughter Robin Elleane, was born in September of 1944, while he was overseas. He and Helene also had a son, Edward Nye (USMA 1969) born in July of 1947, and a second daughter, Lynn, born in January 1951. In retirement in Columbus [Georgia], he and Helene were active members of Holy Family Church and enjoyed their life together in Green Island Hills. The serenity and joy of this family life came to an abrupt end in May of 1997 with Helene's passing.
After a period of dispossessing a lifetime's accumulation, he learned the telephone number of a recently widowed high school friend, Frances (Sassy) Ricker. They reconnected by phone and were wed in April of 1999 after which they made their home in Raleigh, NC. He always expressed appreciation and gratitude to Sassy and her family, Frances (Frannie) Whitten and Frederic Arnold of Raleigh, and Victoria Wood of Greenville, SC, for making his last years so enjoyable.
Rehkopf is survived by his wife, Frances Ricker Rehkopf; and three children, Robin S. Rehkopf of Van Nuys, CA, Edward N. Rehkopf of Mount Ulla, NC, and Lynn Doroghazi of St. Louis, MO; eight grandchildren; and three great grandchildren.
His remains will be laid to rest next to Helene below the Old Cadet Chapel at West Point. George will always be remembered by his children and grandchildren as an imposing man with a ready smile, a great sense of humor, and a love of life. He will be missed.

General Notes: Husband - William SCUTT

Early Stafford County, Virginia information: "Burke Spring Timeline"
1715 — English colonist William Darrell receives patent for substantial tract of land south of Pimmit Run between present-day Kirby Road and Old Dominion Drive. 200 acres of the land is leased to William SCUTT. [Father of William SCUTT, husband of Elizabeth O'DANIEL?]
1738 — SCUTT's 200 acres is leased to John Cockerill and two others, for an annual sum of 730 pounds of tobacco. Cockerill owns six slaves. The Pimmit tributary on the property is known as "Cockerill's Spring Branch." [http://www.connectionnewspapers.com/article.asp?article=309743&paper=68&cat=104]

"23 July, 1739. Bond of John Going, William SCUTT and John Hollis unto Denis McCarty, Gent., justice. For £100, 23 July, 1739. John Going is administrator of Catherine Padderson, deceased. Witness: John Bowie, 23 July, 1739, Acknowl­edged and Ordered" ["Prince William County Will Book C" by John Frederick Forman]

William SCUTT (SCOTT) and James O'DANIEL were listed as chain carriers on a survey of 300 acres of land for John GLADDIN on 7 June, 1741.

Before 16 March 1746, William married Elizabeth O"DANIEL, James' sister and daughter of William and Frances O'DANIEL. In Northern Neck Land Grant F-316, William SCUTT is listed then as adjacent to "Lewis SAUNDERS the younger of Fairfax Co." on land formerly granted to Elizabeth's father, William O'DANIEL, in 1724. (Abstracts of Virginia's Northern Neck Warrents and Surveys 1710-1780, Vol III-IV, p. 117)

William SCOTT signed an Administrator Bond for Ruth CANTERBURY, Fairfax County,Virginia Will Book A-1, part 2, Page 360, 31 March 1750: Know all men by these presents that we Samuel CANTERBURY, Robert BOGGS, and William SCOTT are held and firmly bound unto John COLWILL the first Justice in the Commission of the peace for Fairfax county for and in behalf,and to the sole use and behalf of the Justices of the said county and their successors in the sum of five hundred pounds Sterling to be paid to the said COLWILL, his executors, administrators and assigns to the which payment, well and Truely to be made we bind ourselves and every one of us and every of our heirs, Executors and administrators jointly and firmly by these presents.

On 23 November 1752, on the petition of Lewis Sanders Jr.: “…Ordered that John Cotton James Halley, William Scutt & William Kitchen or any three of them view the road by the Petitioners plantation & report upon oath whether the same may be conveniently turned Lewis Sanders Jr. petitions the court for road repairs by his plantation…” The Kitchen family will maintain a long association with the Sanders family. Lewis receives permission to turn the road in June of 1753. Page 407, Ibid. [http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~sandersgenealogy/FairfaxSanders.html]

On 7 April, 1753, William and Elizabeth O'Daniel SCOTT, together with her sister and husband, Henry and Katherine O'Daniel GUNNELL, signed an indenture selling 200 acres of land to Francis SUMMERS. These two hundred acres were the south west half of the four hundred acres granted to William O'DANIEL on the 16 March 1724, apparently bequeathed Elizabeth and Katherine, in his will, dated 24 January 1728?. The indenture was witnessed by Lewis ELLZEY, James HAMILTON, William PAYNE, William SUMMERS, James? STEPHENS, John LANE, and James HANDY. The 1760 interpretive map of Fairfax County by Beth Mitchell shows Francis SUMMERS land adjoining that of John O'DANIEL. A William SCOTT's land is just north of John's.

Fairfax County Road Orders 1749-1800 by Beth Mitchell lists William SCUTT in three instances:
23 Nov 1752 - On petition of Lewis SANDERS junr. Ordered that John COTTON, James HALLEY, William SCUTT & William KITCHEN or any three of them view the road by the Petitioners' plantation & report on oath...;
20 June 1753 - On Petition of Lewis SANDERS for liberty to turn a road... James HALLEY, William SCUTT...;
22 May 1754 - John O'DANIEL, Elizabeth's brother, was appointed surveyor of the Church road in the room of William SCUTT. (http://www.virginiadot.org/vtrc/main/online_reports/pdf/03-r19.pdf) Church Road bisected John's property.

On 10 October 1755, William SCUTT was a private in the Fairfax militia company of Capt. Lewis ELLZEY which was sent to the assistance of Frederick and Hampshire counties. Among the other soldiers was Joseph Jones.

Additional information on William SCUTT received from Russell Hall of Germantown, Tennessee, a GLADDIN researcher, provides that William reported Ann NELSON for having a base born child; that John CARLYLE, admr. of Ann GLADIN, filed a suit against William SCUTT and John DRAKEFORD; and that William was an appraiser of the Frances GLADEN estate (died in 1757).

The Fairfax County, Va. - Census - Taxlist of Thomas Lewis 1782 names a "Scutt, William" with 7 whites and 3 blacks. [http://files.usgwarchives.net/va/fairfax/census/1782/1782tax03.txt]

ALL BELOW IS SUPPOSITION! -

Elizabeth O'Daniel SCUTT may have died before 1755, as neither she nor William were named in her mother's will signed 7 February 1755.

In 1748, a WILLIAM SCOTT, received a tract of land west of the Wateree River above the Richland County line. This preceded the land grants to James O'DANIEL and his brother William O'DANIEL in 1754 in the same area. Based on this William SCOTT's will of 1810, he had two sons and one daughter: William SCOTT, Samuel SCOTT (whose second wife was Jane ROSS), and Elizabeth SCOTT who married Lewis DINKINS. The daughter named Elizabeth and the proximity of many members of the extended O'DANIEL family make a circumstantial case for this to be the William SCOTT family from Fairfax, Virginia. This is NOT proven.

It is also possible that she and William had moved to South Carolina with James and William O'DANIEL (II) and was not mentioned because of her absence. Noting that John O'DANIEL replaced William SCUTT as surveyor of the Church road on 22 May 1754 in Fairfax County, Virginia, and that both of Elizabeth's other brothers have land records in South Carolina in 1754, adds to that possibility.

William and Elizabeth SCOTT sold their 100 acres in Fairfax County, Virginia inherited from Elizabeth's father, William O'DANIEL on April 7, 1753. On 10 Jan 1754 in South Carolina, James DANIEL (O'DANIEL) witnessed lease and release deed by James (his mark) WESTON, planter, & Elizabeth his wife, to Thomas HOWELL, planter, both of Craven County, for 100 acres on the North side of the Congaree River.

On 10 October 1755, William SCUTT was a trooper in the Fairfax militia company commanded by Capt. Lewis ELLZEY. They were sent to the assistance of Frederick and Hampshire counties. William was paid 300 pounds of tobacco for 30 days service. Among the troopers was a Joseph JONES. [Virginia's Colonial soldiers, Lloyd DeWitt Bockstruck, p. 161]

In 1757 the year Frances GLADIN, late O'DANIEL, died, both William SCUTT and James DANIELL were in Fairfax, Virginia. William as an appraiser of Frances' estate and James to sell the 100 acres he had inherited from his father. Did they return from South Carolina together to terminate their affairs in Virginia upon the death of James and Elizabeth's mother? In 1760 though, a William SCOTT has property in Fairfax, not far from Elizabeth's brother, John O'DANIEL.

Possible??: Near William O'DANIEL, brother of James: SC Archives: Series Number: S111001 Volume: 0011 Page: 00134 Item: 02 Date: 1772/02/24 Description: SCOTT, William, Memorial for 300 Acres on White Oak Creek, Craven County. Names Indexed: SCOTT, William/SCOTT, Daniel/BEEK, John/GOODIN[GLADDIN OR GOODWIN?], John/DANIEL, William/LEWIS, James/NELSON, Reason/Locations: Craven County/White Oak Creek Type: Memorial.

The 1782 State Census for Virginia., Fairfax County lists:
William SCUTT 7 whites, 3 blacks on the LIST OF THOMAS LEWIS.
William SCOTT - 1 white, 11 blacks on the LIST OF HENRY DARN. Cause to think that Elizabeth may have died and William either returned or did not go to South Carolina?

A William SCOTT was the St. Andrew's Parish Representative to the South Carolina U.S. Constitution Ratification Convention of Sep 17, 1787, voting for ratification May 23, 1788. It is reasonable to think that William SCOTT and James DANIELL moved together because of their close relationship in Viginia, but that in itself doesn't prove this William is the same William SCUTT from James' youth in Fairfax.

Did the SCUTT family cut ties to Fairfax circa 1753 and move to South Carolina with Elizabeth's brothers, William and James? A group migration from Virginia by James and William O'DANIEL (II) and William SCUTT?

Surnames: Hill Scott Talbott
William Scott, who was the author of the Nelson Co.Ky. Will which was proved in May of 1805 was originally of the Fairfax Co, Va. area. He is listed on the 1760 Fairfax County Map. Wm. Scott had a three-lives-lease from George Mason as did his neighbors, Wm. Stone, Wm. Kitchen, John Bronaugh (sic)and John Cotton. These deeds are all dated between the 7th Oct 1757 and the 15th of November 1757.
In his Will, Wm. Scott declares that John Scott is deceased and left two daughters, Nancy and Betsy Scott. Wm.Scott, the son, was a Reverend. Son Thomas Scott married
Nancy Redmond the 3 Oct 1785 in Nelson County,Ky. Daniel Scott married Nancy Floyd 4 Feb 1807 in Nelson Co, Ky. James Scott bca. 1786 d.1 Sept 1824, married 16 Mar 1809 to Mary
Weaver in Nelsn County. Elizabeth Scott was the wife of Wm.
Talbott, who died shortly thereafter in Nelson Co.Nancy Scott was the wife of Nathaniel Cotton (s/o John Cotton of
Nelson Co.) Sarah Scott married Wm. Snelling in Nelson Co.
on 2 Feb 1788, and Mary (Molly)Scott married Wm.Hynes, 21 Oct 1790 in Nelson County. Wm. Taylor, the Baptist Minister
married this last couple.
The Hill's were neighbors of the Scotts, thus since they
witnessed the Will, two of the three witnesses had to prove
the Will according to Kentucky Law. Kentucky was and still is called a Commonweath, and its laws are the same as Virginia which is also a Commonwealth.

General Notes: Wife - Elizabeth O'DANIEL

Elizabeth O'DANIEL married William SCOTT, a friend of her brother, James.

In 1746, William was listed as owning land formerly belonging to her father, William O'DANIEL. Their marriage undoubtedly took place before that date. IMPLIED MARRIAGES OF FAIRFAX COUNTY, VA by Marty Hiatt lists the following on page 194:
SCUTT, WILLIAM and Elizabeth O'DANIEL, dau of William O'DANIEL (Drawer X ( will dtd 24 Jan 1726/27);
SCUTT to SUMMERS -1792. The dated marriage may be that of a descendant of the marriage of William and Elizabeth.

On 7 April, 1753, William and Elizabeth (O'DANIEL) SCOTT and her sister and husband, Henry and Katherine (O'DANIEL) GUNNELL, signed an indenture selling 200 acres of land to Francis SUMMERS. These two hundred acres were part of the four hundred acres granted to William O'DANIEL on the 16 March 1724, and belived to have been bequeathed to his daughters, Elizabeth and Katherine, in the his will, dated 24 January 172?. The indenture was witnessed by Lewis ELLZEY, James HAMILTON, William PAYNE, William SUMMERS, James? STEPHENS, John LANE, and James HANDY.

Elizabeth was not named in the 7 February 1755 will of her mother, Frances (O'DANIEL) GLADIN. She may have died before then. Proving nothing at this point, the marriage of a William SCOTT to Mildred BUNBURY, 18 June 1756 is recorded in St. Paul's Parish Register (Stafford- King George Counties) 1715 - 1798 , p. 9, Nicklin.

General Notes: Husband - James O'DANIEL, RW-SC

James O'DANIEL, son of William O'DANIEL, was first known to your compiler from this entry in the History of Hancock County, Georgia, p. 138, "James DANIEL is thought to have been the James O'DANIEL who came to South Carolina about 1749 or 1750 from Virginia. In Stafford County, Virginia, there are records of the sale of land by "James O'DANIEL of the Province of South Carolina". In the deed he says this land was left to him in the will of his father, William O'DANIEL, of Accotink Run, Stafford County, Virginia. James DANIEL moved to Hancock County Georgia after the Revolution. Whether he took an active part in the War of the Revolution or was too old to do so is not known, but that he was one of those who "aided and abetted" the cause of the Americans is an established fact. His name is mentioned in the official records of South Carolina as giving aid to the Americans. He also mentions in his will, signed in 1797, his "three bounties" in Hancock County. James DANIELL's will is in the courthouse in Sparta, Georgia."

We now know James O'DANIEL was born in 1721, one of three sons of William and Frances O'DANIEL of Stafford County, Virginia. In the earliest found mention of James, he and William SCUT were listed as chain carriers on a survey of 300 acres of land for John GLADDIN on 7 June, 1740. James' surname is found as O'DANIEL, DANIEL, DANNELL, and DANIELL in Virginia records. After migrating to Craven County, South Carolina circa 1754, and later to Hancock County, Georgia circa 1790, he is found only as DANIEL or DANIELL. He used DANIELL as the surname for himself and children in his 1797 last will and testament. Many of his descendants have continued to use the DANIELL spelling, some now use DANIEL and DANIELS.

The O'DANIEL family lands were within Truro Parish. "Within this territory were the seats of the Fairfaxes, Washingtons, Masons, McCartys, Fitzhughs, Brents, Alexanders, Lewises, Mercers, Daniels, Carters, Dades, Stuarts, Corbins, Tayloes, Steptoes, Newtons, Browns, Lees, Thorntons, Balls, Smiths, and other leading families too many to mention." ("The History of Truro Parish in Virginia" by Rev. Philip Slaughter with Notes and Addenda by Rev. Edward L. Goodwin. 1907.)

John GLADDIN's survey and resurvey of land for on 3 Sept. 1741 by WARNER with chain carriers William SCUTT & James O'DANIEL and again on 8 Feb 1743 by George BYRN with chain carriers John O'DANIELL and John ANDERSON. The land was described as 300 acres on Accotink Run at the Beaverdam, adjacent to Ravensworth, WATTS and HARRISON, Mr. MASON, Wm O'DANIEL and Michael ASHFORD, Major John FITZHUGH, and John WARNER. Land plants show this 300 acres to be on Accotink at the mouth of and across O'Daniel's Branch from William O'DANIEL's 1724 land grant. (Abstracts of Virginia's Northern Neck Warrents and Surveys 1710-1780, Vol III-IV, p. 109, 110)

On February 8, 1743, James O'DANIEL and his brother, John, were named as chain bearers for a survey of land for his stepfather John GLADDIN on land adjoining that of their deceased father William O'DANIEL (the 400 acres on the west bank of O'Daniels Branch and Accotink Creek), et al, on Accotink Run, Fairfax County, Virginia. John GLADDIN married William's widow, Frances.

The first election for a burgess was held in Fairfax County in July, 1744. Among the freeholders of Fairfax who voted in this election and supported a neighbor, Captain Lawrence WASHINGTON, were William BOWLING, Thomas MOXLEY, James DANIEL [O'DANIEL], William GUNNELL, William GUNNELL, Jr., and Henry GUNNELL. John HURST, who married Catherine O'DANIEL, voted for Captain Lewis ELZEY. During the preceding twenty-five years, these "well-to-do" families had migrated up the Potomac Valley from older Northern Neck settlements and were now living on the Fairfax County streams of Accotink, Sugarland, Difficult Run and Goose Creek. (Fairfax Harrison, Tyler's Quarterly.)

James appears in the records of the Fairfax County Court Order/Minutes from May 1749 to January 1757.

Fairfax Court records abstracts May 17, 1749 show James DANIEL as a plaintiff in a case of trespass, assault and battery against William PAYNE, Jr., and on April 2, 1750 awarded 10.0.0 pounds sterling and costs in the case. Edward WASHINGTON, Frances EMMET, John HUNTER, and Elizabeth BROADWATER were paid as witnesses providing evidence against William PAYNE.

James is listed as a juror in four cases during court proceedings dated 3 April 1750: Carlyle Gent. vs Remy; Carlyle Gent. vs Alexander Gent.; Carlyle Gent. vs Alexander Gent.; and Alexander Gent. vs English, Harland Brewster. In the same year, James sued William PAYNE, Jr. and was himself sued by George JOHNSTON.

In 1752, James was ordered to pay Truro Parish a judgment of 10 shillings; was ordered to give a deposition in another case; and was listed in the inventory and sale of the possessions of Captain George HARRISON, paying £4.18.2 as his balance on Harrison's book.

By 1753, however, life was becoming decidedly more complicated (in Virginia) as British and French rivalry over the Ohio Valley and Virginia's western claims fueled the forthcoming confrontation of the French and Indian War (1755-1763). Likely one of the reasons for numerous families from Virginia moving to South Carolina in the 1750s, but it wasn't much more peaceful there.

The earliest record of James DANIEL being in South Carolina deed may be this: Book O-O, p 697: "10 Jan 1754 L & R - "James (his mark) WESTON, planter, & Elizabeth his wife, to Thomas HOWELL, planter, both of Craven Co., for £ 200 currency, 100 a. on N side Congaree River, bounding SW & NW on vacant land; & on 'old lines' & on Vinson SIMMONS; bounding NE & SE on vacant land; as by grant from Gov. James GLEN in Council Chamber 8 Aug. 1753. Witnesses: James DANIEL, Charles STROTHER, John ALYNCK (MYRICK?). Before Stephen CREEL, J. P. William HOPTON, Register." (South Carolina Deed Abstracts, 1719-1772 Vol. II, 1740-1755, Books V-P-P, p. 335, abstracted by Clara A. Langley)

Less than three months later, James requests a grant of 200 acres for himself, a wife, and two children. Two entries in "Petitions For Land From The South Carolina Council Journals, Vol. 4, 1754-1756" by Brent H. Holcomb record the outcome of his request. The first: Meeting of Tuesday A.M., 2 April, 1754 - The Petition of James DANIEL humbly setting forth: That the Petitioner hath a wife and two Children for whom nor yet for himself has any warrant been granted and being willing to Cultivate and Improve some of his majesty's vacant Land, he prays to lay out 200 acres of Land on Broad River or any of the waters of Santee so that he may have a Grant for the same, Charles Town, the 2d of April, 1754. James DANIEL. The prayer thereof was granted. Twenty-one months later, a second entry shows that James had not fulfilled the requirements to obtain the grant. His legal problems in Fairfax, Virginia in 1755, noted above, may have been partly responsible for this failure, causing him to be absent from South Carolina. James then requested an extension of time to meet the land grant requirements: Meeting of Tuesday A.M. 6 January, 1756 - The Petition of James DANIEL humbly setting forth that he had obtained his Excellency's Warrant dated 2d of April, 1754 for the survey of 200 acres of Land on Broad River or the waters of Santee but through mistake of the Petitioner the time for passing it into a Grant was elapsed as would appear from the Warrant herewith produced, prayed to prolong the said Warrant six months from this Date, and that he might have a Grant for the same. Dated December the 18th, 1755. Ja's DANIEL . The prayere thereof was granted.
SC Archives: Series Number: S213197 Box: 0001 Item: 00288 ignore: 00 Date: 1757/11/04 Description: DANIEL, James, Unrecorded plat for Land Not Granted, 200 Acres near Cedar Creek, Santee River, Surveyed by John HAMELTON. Names Indexed: DANIEL, James/HAMELTON, John/MCDANIEL, Walter/Locations: Santee River/Cedar Creek.

In January, 1755, William PAYNE, Jr. won a suit against James DANIEL, who was required to sell "1 bed & furniture, 1 chest of drawers, 1 writing desk of Daniel's" and render the proceeds to the plaintiff to satisfy the judgment and costs. Payment was 4 pounds, 12 shillings, 2 pence. James' mother, Frances O'DANIEL GLADIN, bequeathed, in her will, dated 7 February 1755, a bed, chest and writing desk to James. This was most likely her effort to replace the items lost as a result of William PAYNE, Jr.'s suit against him. In Frances' will, she names hers sons as "James DANNELL, William DANNELL, and John O'DANNELL. If there was a rift between brothers as thought, the way the sons were named in the will may be indicative of its having begun before 1755.

James DANIEL's plat for 400 acres, in the low grounds of the Congaree River, bounded SW by same, and all other sides vacant was surveyed by John PEARSON on 13 September 1756. The plat is redated for James DANIEL on 5 September 1758 and "Recertified for Jas RANDOLS on 25 December 1758. [View plat at: http://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/onlinearchives/Thumbnails.aspx?recordId=97236] Note: John PEARSON's granddaughter, Martha Ann COOK, would marry James DANIELL's son, Levi, in 1796.

On March 17, 1757 in Fairfax County, Virginia, James DANIEL was a plaintiff vs John (Sampson lined out) TRAMMELL's executors in chancery court. Ezekial Hickman was called as a witness.

In 1757, the year his mother died, James cut his final ties to Fairfax County when he sold his 100 acres of land bequeathed by his father. "By deed dated August 16, 1757, (Fairfax Liber D, 458) his son James O'DANIEL of the Province of South Carolina Conveys to the Rev. Charles GREEN, of Truro Parish, 100 acres left to him by the last will and testament of his father, William O'DANIEL, being the lower part of a tract of land granted by the Proprietors of the Northern Neck to the said William O'DANIEL by deed dated April 19, 1717, for 300 acres." (Tyler's Quarterly Historical and Genealogy Magazine, Volume I, pages 164-165). Although identified in the indenture of sale as James O'DANIEL, he is named on each of four items completing the sale as "James DANIELL". The sale price of the land was fifteen pounds sterling. Witnesses were Thomas WREN, Peter TURLEY, and Jeremiah HAMPTON. Included with the sale, James signed a bond of thirty pounds with William SCOTT to save Charles GREEN harmless from any claim of dowers of his mother or any wife James may have. This bond proved that James' mother was still alive at the time of the sale. This indenture is the oldest known use of James' surname as DANIELL, not considering his mother's 1755 Will naming him as James DANNELL. Although his name is often found as DANIEL in records of the time, James named himself and members of his family as DANIELL when listing his children in his Bible and in his will of 1797.

As an aside, Rev. Charles GREEN and Margaret his wife later sold James' 100 acres to Bryan FAIRFAX for £25, minus a small meadow to remain in possession of GREEN during his residence on Glebe Land. (Fx. Deeds E:l. 8 June 1761). Bryan FAIRFAX leased to Margaret GREEN, widow of Charles GREEN, for her lifetime, 197 acres between Accotink and Long Branch where Bryan FAIRFAX lately dwelt, purchased from Charles GREEN in 1761 and known as Green Hill. Daniel McCARTY handled the lease and the token rent was 1 peppercorn. (Fx. Deeds G:2~. 14 September 1766)

There is a question about what happened to James O'DANIEL's brother, William. Both James and William are absent from Virginia records after 1757. We believe William O'DANIEL who was in Craven County, South Carolina by 1754 is the brother of James and John of Fairfax County, Virginia. John O'DANIEL's son, William O'DANIEL (DANIEL) who settled in Edgefield County and two of his sons were closely associated with Josiah DANIEL, a son of William O'DANIEL of Kershaw County. James and William migrated to South Carolina about the same time (1754) and received land grants not far from each other. Both James and William conducted legal affairs in Fairfax County, Virginia in 1757, and are absent from Virginia records after that year.

James likely built his home on the 200 acres near Cedar Creek on the Santee River. He begins to buy land also on another Cedar Creek on the Broad, near Little River, accumulating several hundred acres there. This is where he was living according to the 1790 census of Camden District, Fairfield County, South Carolina. This census shows he has in his household an unidentified male under 16, a female (wife, Nancy HARDWICK), and 42 slaves. He also had a 500 acre farm, purchased from Moses KIRKLAND in 1774, which was located on Indian Creek, Clouds Creek, and the Saluda River in Ninety Six District. James appears in some early 1750's property records in the Congaree River area and also had property on the Congaree River which he bequeathed to his son, Jose, in 1798.

James DANIELL and his family were indeed pioneers, attested to by Edwin L. Green in "A History of Richland County, South Carolina" when he wrote: "In the year 1757 John PEARSON was captain of the company in the Congaree Fork, in which were 125 privates, eight alarm men, with forty slaves, whose duty it was to act as pioneers. The territory represented in this company included the present Richland County. Only a few hundred people were then living in the fork of the Congaree and Wateree." The names of the officers and privates in Captain PEARSON's company have not been preserved. Because James, 36 years old in 1757, was John PEARSON's neighbor, and because James' son, Levi, married John PEARSON's granddaughter, Martha Pearson COOK, it is reasonable to believe James was part of Pearson's company.

The 1750s and 60s, the Upcountry of South Carolina was a dangerous place to take up land. As early as 1753 the Assembly in Charlestown put a huge bounty (100 pounds, later 50 pounds) on the heads of Northern Indians, Senecas, Mohawks, and other Iroquois tribes - who moved up and down the Appalachians raiding both white and Indian settlements.. The native Chickasaw and Cherokee Indians presented numerous problems for the new white settlers as well. Conocautee (Old Hop) and other chiefs of the Cherokee nation signed the Saluda Old Town Treaty July 2, 1755 with Gov. James Glen of South Carolina. According to Historian Roy Vandergrift of Saluda, South Carolina, this treaty ceded a large part of what became Ninety Six District, which included all or large parts of the present day Spartanburg, Cherokee west of the Broad River, Union, Newberry, Laurens, Greenwood, Abbeville, McCormick, Edgefield, Saluda and a small part of Aiken counties. War with the Cherokees broke out in 1758. The Long Canes massacre occurred in 1760. In December 1761, the Cherokees and colonial government in South Carolina signed another treaty, setting the Indian Territory boundary forty miles from the Indian town of Keowee, as proposed by the Cherokees, a straight line from the Savannah River where the Anderson County-Abbeville County line is today up to the Reedy River and thence a straight line northward to Tryon Mountain in North Carolina. This boundary was surveyed in 1766 and is drawn on a map in Meriwether's Expansion of South Carolina, p 212. This treaty led to a large influx of settlers into the Upcountry of South Carolina, more than six years after James and his brother William received their land grants.

The name of James O'DANIEL's first wife is not yet discovered. For James to have the 2 children he claimed on his 2 April 1754 petition for a South Carolina land grant their marriage would have occurred before 1751.
NOTE: James O'DANIEL DID NOT marry Theodosia Congers in Fairfax County, Virginia on October 19, 1755 as Fairfax Harrison wrote in Tyler's Quarterly and he did not have a son, William Scott, by her in 1756. Theodosia CONYERS, daughter of Captain John CONYERS or CONNERS, is proven to be the wife of James ODUNEAL (O'DENEALE/DENEALE) of Fairfax County, Virginia. See N. B. below for details. RLD]

Was James DANIELL's first wife named Ann, Elizabeth, or another? Two items are of interest here:
1. James' Bible is now said to be in the University of Georgia Library, part of an donation by the James BARROW family. But repeated efforts to find the Bible there and in internet lookup requests, library specialists have not been able to locate it. The Historical Collections of the Georgia Chapters Daughters of the American Revolution, Volume IV, page 12, presents a transcript of the Bible of James DANIEL said to be in possession of Mrs. D. F. Barrow, Athens. "James DANIEL was the first husband of Mrs. James Barrow, wife of James Barrow of Milledgeville, Ga. BIRTHS: Children of James DANIEL and wife Ann: Jesse DANIEL .....12-2-1754; Sarah DANIEL ......5-4-1756; Jose DANIEL ......12-6-1757; Levi DANIEL ......12-21-1759; Martha DANIEL .. 1-22-1762; Mary DANIEL ......2-20-1765" (Other transcriptions show DANIELL. These children were probably born in South Carolina, but it is possible that Jesse, Sarah, and the two unknown children claimed in April 1754 may have been born in Virginia.)
CAUTION: Before believing "Ann" was the mother of James' children consider that "Ann" may refer to Nancy HARDWICK, the stepmother, born 6 Jan 1758. She was too young to be the mother of these children, but was James's wife as known to the BARROW family of Hancock County, Georgia. However, all known records of Nancy HARDWICK list her as Nancy, not Ann. None of James' known daughters were named Ann or Nancy, but circumstantial evidence suggests that the Ann DANIEL, born 1753, married to Absalom EILAND may be one of the two children James claimed in his 1754 petition for land in South Carolina. The questions remain; "Ann" may be correct.
2. In a MITCHELL Family folder donated to the Archives of Arizona, a section therein on James DANIELL's family a short descendant chart provides that James' wife was named Elizabeth, but no other document yet corroborates this. Followup on this MITCHELL information has not been fruitful. (James' granddaughter, Catherine B. DANIELL, daughter of Levi, married Julius Caesar Bonaparte MITCHELL on 4 May 1817 in Hancock County, Georgia.)

The History of Hancock County, Georgia, page 138, also refers to an old Bible "which originally belonged to James DANIELL." It does not name James or Ann but lists James' children: Jesse b. December 2, 1754; Sarah, b. May 4, 1756; Jose, b. December 6, 1757; Levi, b. December 21, 1759; Martha, b. January 22, 1762; Mary, b. February 20, 1765. Who was their mother? When and where did she die?

Between 1779 and 1787 James married Nancy HARDWICK, his second wife and widow, named in his will of 1797. No documentation proves James and Nancy had children. Nancy was born January 6, 1758 and was younger than five of James' children, counting the two claimed in the 1754 petition.
Previously, an abstract from Hancock County Deed Book C, page 223, summarized a 22 November 1798 deed of gift of a Negro girl "Jinny" from Nancy DANIELL to "my son John Daniell..." suggesting that James and Nancy had a son; the abstract is in error.
On 28 December 2008, Alexis Spiritas provided a full transcription of Nancy's 22 November 1798 "Deed of Gift" which shows the gift to be to "James DANIELL, Infant..." NOT to "my son, John DANIELL..." "James DANIELL, Infant" is most likely James Levi, the four year old son of Levi DANIELL, Nancy's stepson.
"To all people to whom these presents shall come. I, Nancy Daniell do send Greetings knowing that the said Nancy Daniell of the State of Georgia and County of Hancock for and in consideration of the Love, good will, and affection which I have and bear towards James Daniell, Infant of the State and County aforesaid, have given and granted and by these Presents do freely give and Grant unto the said James Daniell, his heirs, Executors or administrators a Negro girl named Jinny and her increase. But the condition of the above Deed of Gift is such that it is not my intention for the said James Daniell to be possessed with the above mentioned Negro Jinny nor her increase until my Death. In witness whereof I have hereunto put my hand and seal this twenty second day of November one thousand seven hundred and ninety eight.

DISCUSSION: Why did James not have offspring named James, William, Frances, or John, after himself, his father, mother, or brothers? Notice also the six year gap between the birth of Levi and his sister, Mary, and the two "missing" children he claimed in 1754.
It is reasonable to think James had a son named for himself and a daughter named for his wife. James may have had at least nine children, but records do not yet prove who they are. James' petition for land grant in April 1754 in South Carolina, claims that he has a wife and two children, both would be older than the six named in his Bible. (Makes 8.) A grandson, Jesse Daniell AUSTON, son of "Betty AUSTON" is named in his will, but the Bible does not name a daughter Elizabeth or Betty. (Makes 9, unless Betty is a nickname. Martha is the only proven daughter whose family, if any, has not been discovered.) James' widow is known, but she, Nancy HARDWICK, is too young to be the mother of the six children in the Bible. She is named in the LW&T of James' son, Levi, as his step-mother.
In James' LW&T, he names two sons, Jose and Levi, and two sons-in-law, James TAYLOR, husband of Sarah (deceased, not named in the will), and (Dr.) Robert Handrick (HENDRICK), husband of Mary (assumed deceased, not named in the will). Jesse is said to have been killed "by Indians or the British" and Martha is known only from her birth recorded the Bible.
Some descendants of Absalom and Ann EILAND of South Carolina contend that Absalom's wife was Ann DANIEL, born 1753 in either Fairfield County, South Carolina or Johnston County, North Carolina, the daughter of James DANIEL/LL and Ann SANKEY. Absalom is named in South Carolina land records as early as 1770. His father, George EILAND, had a land grant on Nobles Creek (later called Horns Creek) off Stevens Creek in Granville County, later part of Edgefield County by 1771. Some state that Absalom and Ann were married in 1775 in Fairfield County, South Carolina; others say Johnston County, North Carolina. Absalom is named in the "The Jury List of South Carolina, 1778-1779", page 70, for Orangeburg County on the List of Petit Jurors between the north and south forks of the Edisto River. Absolom and family migrated from South Carolina to Greene County (later Hancock and Baldwin counties), and lastly to Jones County, Georgia. Absalom EILAND and wife Ann sold 287 acres of land in Greene County, Georgia to "James DANIELL of Fairfield County, South Carolina" in 1787, witnessed by Levi DANIELL, James' son. About 1791 Absalom and Ann named a son Levi Daniel EILAND. No source records prove our James DANIELL married an Ann SANKEY or that he had a daughter named Ann. However, in 1754, James DANIEL did petition for a grant of 200 acres on the Broad or Santee (Congaree) Rivers for himself, his wife and two children, supporting the contention that James was married before 1750 and had two children younger than those named in his Bible record. Two questions from this: Was an Ann SANKEY the wife claimed in 1754 and mentioned in the D.A.R. record above? Was Ann Daniel EILAND one of those two children? Additionally, EILAND family lore also claims that Nancy, the widow of James DANIELL, who remarried to James BARROW and died in Milledgeville, Baldwin County, Georgia on 18 January 1814 was James' first wife, Ann SANKEY, but THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE. Nancy, daughter of William HARDWICK and Kessiah Cynthia PARKER. was the second wife of James DANIELL.

On May 11, 1767, as listed in "Abstracts of the Wills of the State of South Carolina 1760-1784" compiled by Caroline Moore:
James DANIEL witnessed the will of Jesse GOODWYN. He appears in the will along with Isaac RAIFORD, Philip PEARSON, and many GOODWYNs. Each of these families were related to James' descendants through the marriages of his children.

On May 18, 1770, James DANIEL is named on a plat of 40 acres surveyed by John CALDWELL for James JOHNSON in Craven County, on the waters of Little River. In addition to James, neighbors are Samuel FORD, Daniel PITTS and Charles PITTS. This plat was reordered to William GILLILAND on 29 September 1772.

On 20 March 1771, James DANIEL is named on a plat for 100 Acres surveyed by John CALDWELL for Levi PITTS in Craven County on waters of Little River, Carsons Branch.

The "Roads" were the new road and the old road from the Ridge to Ninety Six.]

"James DANIELL's plantation on the Saluda River was an investment begun in 1774 in Ninety Six District, probably with the lease and release purchase of 500 acres from Moses KIRKLAND, although the deed is not clear. Until now I had no evidence that he ever lived on it. The Clouds is a creek that empties into the Saluda River about 30 miles west of Columbia. It is now all in Saluda County. I assume that Indian Creek is a small unmarked creek that joins it just before in empties into the Saluda River. This land is flooded today by the damming of the Saluda to form Lake Murray. It is difficult to determine just where this property is on current maps. To be in Ninety Six District and still be close to the homestead, it has to be in eastern Saluda County and flooded by Lake Murray, a lake formed by the damming of the Saluda. The creeks, Indian and Clouds, are not on current maps (now on the "SC Gazetteer" by Delorme)." (Tuck Wilson)

"41-2 Will of William GOLDING of South Carolina, Ninety Six District...to my son Reuben GOLDING one tract and plantation that I purchased of James DANIEL, containing 300 acres on Little River adjoining the land I now live on....4 Sep 1777."

On 26 May 1784 James DANIEL received 400A on a warrant for land on Alligator Creek in now Fairfield County, bordering, among others, on William DANIEL's land. The following day William DANIEL exercised a warrant for 210A bordering some of his land and James DANIEL's land. Both may be found in some of the public records, such as those for inquests and other court duties, in the records of Fairfield County, South Carolina. James later bequeathed this tract of land on Alligator Creek to his son-in-law Dr. Robert HANDRICK, husband of his daughter Mary. This William DANIEL is most likely James' nephew, the husband of Lucretia BELL and son of John O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia.

(Tuck Wilson)

On page 13 of "Camden District, S. C. Wills and Administrations, 1781-1787" by Holcomb and Parker, three men, James DANIEL, William DANIEL, and Lewis POPE, are listed as appraisers of the estate of Elizabeth CHAPELL (apt 15, pkg 476). Her will was proved 27 Oct 1782. Purchasers at the sale of property include both William DANIEL and John COOK. This record showing James and William DANIEL together may the only document yet found that does. This William DANIEL is likely William O'DANIEL/DANIEL (1720?-1796), James' brother, but may be his nephew William, husband of Lucretia BELL. Both the POPE and COOK families were associated through marriages with James DANIELL's family. William was later of Kershaw County, and James of Fairfield and Richland County, South Carolina. William, James' nephew, was of Edgefield County.

In a letter, dated October 27, 1927, to Mrs. Louisa Floyd Wilson of Macon, Georgia from the South Carolina Historical Commission, Mr. A. S. Salley, Jr. states that there is a record of pay to James DANIELL for supplies furnished to the Continental Army. "In the volume marked on the enclosed list of publications of this Commission you will find a record of pay issued to James DANIEL for supplies furnished during the Revolutionary War. Women are joining the Society on these records of supplies furnished. As a general rule, where there is a record of pay issued for supplies furnished by a certain man and no record of pay issued to him for services, it is an indication that he was above militia age (45)." From Book Q, No. 444 - "Issued to Mr. James DANIELL for three hundred thirty-eight pounds, sixteen shillings, eleven pence and half penny sterling, for sundries for Continental and Militia use and 790 bushels of corn for state troops as per accounts audited. Principal - £338-16-11½, Annual Interest £23-13-4." In addition, there is an audited account on microfilm at the South Carolina Dept. of Archives and History (series #S108092, Reel 0030, Frame 00217) of other supplies furnished to the Continental Army, 772 lbs. wheat flour and 15 bushels of oats. There is a Militia Captain, James DANIELS, listed in Bobby Gilmer Moss' "Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution" on page 231. Most likely, this is not James DANIELL who, at age 55 in 1776, was above militia age. (Tuck Wilson)

On 6 September 1784, James Daniel is listed on a plat for 191 acres for Robert LYELE [sic] on the Congaree River in Camden District. Others indexed, likely James' neighbors, are Henry BROWN, John GEE, Jacob GEIGER, John HOPKINS, John George KAPPY, Drury WYCHE, and Philip PEARSON, the surveyor. [SC Archives:Series: S213190 Volume: 0009 Page: 00132Item: 002]

A "Daniel, James" is on "The Harvey List" (Georgia's roster of the Revolution, Lucian Lamar Knight, Atlanta, Ga., Index Print. Co., 1920, p. 411, also page 412)

"Soldiers And Patriots Of Georgia" lists "DANIELS, James [PS PS SC]1741 VA 1798 GA Nancy ?" and refers to James DANIELL who died in Hancock County before 5 March 1798; however, James was born in 1721, determined from his age at death, 77, in 1798. (http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ga/topic/military/argeorgia/pat_sol.htm)
In James DANIELL's Will, he twice refers to "three bounties." Identifying them is problematic. The "Index to the Headright and Bounty Grants of Georgia 1756-1909" by Rev. Silas Emmett Lucas, Jr., lists the following, several of which may be James' bounties:
James DANIELY Washington County Grant Book GGG, p. 113, 287.5 acres 1785
James DANIELY Washington County Grant Book GGG, p. 58.72 575 acres 1785
James DANIELY Washington County Grant Book GGG, p. 446 575 acres 1785
James DANIEL Washington County Grant Book LLL p. 250 200 acres 1786
James DANIELLY Washington County Grant Book OOO p. 187 287.5 acres 1787
[James DANIELLY, Book OOO, is part of the DANLEY line according to Lois Danley of Panama City, Florida.] Hancock County was created from parts of Greene and Washington Counties in 1793. James' properties were then in Hancock County, Georgia. He had acquired several tracts of land in Hancock, bequeathed in his Will.

Other possible lands:
"DANNELLY, James. 287 1/2 acres, Washington Co., bounded S. vacant and Oconee river, other sides vacant, survey 137, Aug 16, 1784. Warrent 137, p. 47." (Georgia's roster of the Revolution, Lucian Lamar Knight, Atlanta, Ga., Index Print. Co., 1920, p. 230)

The earliest record found of James DANIELL buying property in Georgia comes from abstracts of Greene County, Georgia records: 16 Jan 1787 deed to James DANIEL of Fairfield County, South Carolina land in Washington County. Less than four months later, on 2 May 1787 a deed recorded in Greene County, Georgia, Deed Book 1, p. 34, shows that Absolom EILAND and his wife Ann of Washington County sold 287 and one half acres "on waters of Rocky and Island Creek in Green County" to "James DANIELL of Fairfield County, South Carolina". The land was "bounded S by John PERKINS, N by John RAGAN's and John EILAND and on all other sides vacant, granted the said John SAPP 13 Oct 1785". The land was sold "in consideration of three negroes". This latter deed was witnessed by James' son Levi DANIELL and George HARDWICK, James' brother-in-law. This Greene County record may be for this property: "1789 Tax Rolls Georgia Greene DANIEL, James GREENE GILBERT 1789 29." The tract was a bounty land grant to Absolom EILAND :"EILAND, ABSOLEM. 287 1/2 acres, Washington Co., bounded E. Wright, other sides vacant, survey 218. June 28, 1785, p. 112."

(Posted to Rootsweb DANIEL-L by Jack V. Butler, November 10, 2002, Subject: Re: [DANIEL-L] Augusta Chronicle) James DANIELL and his son Levi, because of the above deed from Absalom EILAND, appear to be two of the names. Charles, Eustace, Thomas, and William DANIELL named here are not known to be part of James and Levi DANIELL's family. This interesting collection of names contains four who may all be part of the James DANIELL family from Richland and Fairfield counties, South Carolina. James' children include Levi DANIELL, known to own land there, and Mary DANIELL who in 1795 married Robert HENDRICK in Columbia. William DANIEL(LL?), RS-SC, of Edgefield, South Carolina was James' nephew, and may have had RW bounty land adjacent his Uncle James and cousin Levi. The comments on William and Mary DANIELL are speculative.

In 1790 James DANIEL witnessed a South Carolina deed for Arthur WATSON on Cloud's Creek. ""Pp. 20-24. 23 Jul 1790: Arthur WATSON to Thomas FORTNER, both of Edgefield Co, SC for 10 pounds, sold 157 acres on Peters Creek of Cloud Creek adj.

James was an adjacent landowner to WATSON and PRINGLE on Cloud's Creek in 1786. (Tuck Wilson)

The 1790 census of Fairfield County, South Carolina, was not completed until as late as 1793. It lists James DANIEL with one male over 16, himself, one male under 16, not identified*, wife Nancy, and 42 slaves. [Series: M637 Roll: 11 Page: 149]
*James is not known to have had a son born later than 1769. James O'DANIEL, James' grandnephew and grandsonson of his brother John in Fairfax County, Virginia, is known to have been in South Carolina sometime before 1800. Because several of John's children also moved to South Carolina to be with their Uncle James, this may be John's grandson,
James nephew. William DANIEL, son of John of Fairfax, is listed seven names from his uncle.
Samuel ALSTON, 1 2 1 . 7, lives next door to William DANIEL. QUESTION: Is this possibly the family of James DANIELL's daughter Betty named as "Betty Daniell Auston" in his LW&T in 1797, Hancock County, Georgia?
Wm AUSTEN, 1 2 6 . 5. is 14 names from James, another possible family associated with Betty DANIELL.

James moved his family to Island Creek in Hancock County, Georgia after 1790. He kept a home near Columbia, Richland County, South Carolina, later bequeathing it to his son, Jose DANIELL as well as various other plantations or tracts in South Carolina.

On 6 September 1791, James DANIEL is named on a plat for 430 acres on branches of Clouds Creek, Little Saluda River, 96 District. sold to Benjamin ARRINGTON, originally surveyed by William WRIGHT for Thomas KIRKLIN [KIRKLAND]. In addition to James listed are John HITSON, James NUMAN, and Arthur WATSON. [SC Archives: Series: S213190, Volume: 0027 Page: 00296 Item: 001]

SCMAR, Vol. XVI, Summer 1988, No. 3, p.170: Page 188 - 27 July 1792 - James HARDAGE of Fairfield Co., deed of gift (at his death) of a negro boy named Elish and a parcel of land on Dutchmans Creek joining POWER's (?) land and the fork of said creek, mentions the original plat.

[HARDAGE is another spelling of HARDWICK. James was married to William's daughter Nancy.]

An October 30, 1794 deed record for Benjamin BRASWELL shows the sale of 100 acres of land in Hancock County, located on Rocky Creek, adjacent Stephen JOHNSON, Mary PARKER, and James DANIELS. Another deed to Philip COOK on July 4, 1794 for 287.5 acres on Rocky Creek also names John COOK, Sr. and John COOK, Jr., all part of the family of Martha Pearson COOK who later married Levi DANIELL, James' son who also came to Hancock County from South Carolina.

The 1794 Tax Roll for Hancock County, Georgia, page 52, lists James DANIEL, 47 slaves, 862 1/2 acres on Island Creek, tax paid $17.07, and 300 acres at Oconey Swamp in Washington County tax paid $3.55 and a quarter cent. Levi was listed beside his father, one slave, no land and taxed 62 and 1/2 cents. Separately, Levi is named on page 69, with 169 acres adjoining John RAGAN on Island creek. His tax was 1 pound, 18 shillings, 4 pence. Ten years earlier this creek was listed as EILAND creek.

James and Nancy are named on the roster of the Island Creek Baptist Church as James DANIELL, member number 17, and Nancy DANIELL, member number 18. Listed on the same page are William DISMUKE, member number 29, Finney DISMUKE, member number 30, and Martha DISMUKE, member number 31. (Island Creek Baptist Church, Reel 303, Tarver Libary, Mercer University, Macon, Georgia; page copy received from Jerry McGinty.)

James died before 5 May 1798 when his Will was proven. His grave site cannot be visited. According to story, this land was purchased by an individual who, in the 1930's or 1940's, bulldozed everything, including the graves.

James' will was proven March 5, 1798 by testemony of the three witnesses. Pages 287-289: Inventory & appraisement of est. of James DANIELL, April 2, 3, & 4, 1798.

Accounts of James DANIELL, late of Hancock Co. dec'd Inventory and appraisal of part of the Estate as shown to us by Levi DANIEL and Wm. HARDWICK Exors. Total 254.20. James DANIELL's estate records (Hancock Will book AA, page 36-39) indicate he raised, among other things indigo. He also had book accounts of people owing him small amounts of money, indicating he might have had a store. There was also a note in hand on his son-in-law, James TAYLOR for 1036.94. His wife Nancy and son Levi inherited these notes, which became complicated when Levi and Jose died shortly afterward. Jose DANIELL's estate must have owed money to James TAYLOR for in 1801, James TAYLOR (a son-in-law of James DANIELL) and Robert HOWELL, adm. of Jose DANIELL's estate, hired Robert HENDRICK (a son-in-law of James DANIELL) to sue the estate of Levi DANIELL to recover that part of James DANIELL's estate that was now part of Levi DANIELL's estate that rightfully belonged to Jose DANIELL's estate. See Hancock county Deed Book D, page 543. (Tuck Wilson)

When Levi DANIELL died in 1800, that left William HARDWICK, Jr., as the sole executor of James' estate. His Executorship was unsuccessfully challenged in 1816 by John DANIEL, second husband of Martha Pearson COOK, Levi's widow, and guardian of Levi's three children. In 1824, it was again challenged, this time successfully, by James L. DANIELL, Levi's only son.

After James' death, Nancy married James BARROW, who had served in the North Carolina Continental Army, and moved to Milledgeville, Georgia. James BARROW had no children by Nancy DANIELL, who was 44 years old when they married. After Nancy died in Milledgeville in 1814, James BARROW married Patience CRENSHAW, and had two children by her. His daughter, Patience BARROW married William McKINLEY. James BARROW died in 1828 in Baldwin County, Georgia. Apparently, Nancy DANIELL had kept James' Bible. It later came into the possession of Mrs. D. F. BARROW of Athens, Georgia and is said to have been donated to the University of Georgia as part of the BARROW family collection. In January 2006, efforts to locate James' Bible in the Hargrett Library of the University of Georgia were unsuccessful.

Strange but true: Beth Mitchell in her book Beginning at a White Oak... states that Accotinck Creek, James O'DANIEL's boyhood waterway in Virginia, was also called "Island Creek." James later lived and died on "Island Creek" in Hancock County, Georgia.

(Compiled from research by David Leon "Tuck" Wilson III, Teresa Griffis, and Robert Louis Daniell.)

N.B.: James O'DANIEL did not marry Theodosian CONGERS. James DENEALE (ODUNEAL) married Theodosia CONYERS.

In TYLER 'S QUARTERLY HISTORICAL and GENEALOGICAL MAGAZINE:, Volume 1, page 165, Fairfax Harrison wrote: "It seems probable that this James O'DANIEL is the James DANIEL who voted at the Fairfax ( Co. , Virginia ) election in 1744, and who, before he migrated to South Carolina , married, October 19, 1755, Theodosian CONGERS, and in the following year had a son, William Scott O'DANIEL." Harrison cites Boogher's Overwharton Parish Register (1899), 136, as a reference. The marriage date, October 19, 1755 , and the birth date of William Scott O'DANIEL, August 10, 1756 conflict with birth dates for the first three of the children listed in James O'DANIEL's Bible. Marriages of Some Virginia Residents 1607 - 1800, Series I, Volume 5, page 126, by Dorothy Ford Wulfeck, also lists the marriage of James O'DANIEL to Theodosian CONGERS, October 19, 1755 , citing Tyler's as the source. However, on the same page of Wulfeck's work, immediately above the O'DANIEL name are two other marriages, under the name "O'DUNEAL", " Elizabeth m. William THORNBERRY" (undated) and "James m. 19 Oct., 1755, Theodosian CONGERS. OPR.", indicating Overwharton Parish Register.

The Register of Overwharton Parish, Stafford Co., Virginia 1723-1758 and Sundry Historical and Genealogical Notes, compiled and published by George Harrison Sanford King, Fellow, American Society of Genealogists, Fredericksburg, Virginia, dated 1961, contains these entries:
"Married: CONYERS, Sarah Pattison alias, and Thomas HAMPTON, June 1, 1749";
"Married: CONYERS, Anne Holland and Edward PAYNE, February 27, 1750";
"Married: CONYERS, Theodosia and James ODUNEAL, October 19, 1755."

Additional research found the DENEALE/DENEAL family in Stafford County, Virginia during the same period as the O'DANIEL family. Beginning at a White Oak... by Beth Mitchell 1977, page 278, number 54, indicates that Theodosia inherited 300 acres of land on Popeshead Creek from her father, "married James DENEAL. DENEAL, or DENEALE, found surplus of 252 acres and received a Northern Neck grant for 552 acres (NN I:210)". This grant basically combined Theodosia's 300 acres with the surplus found by James. It was bounded by land of Edward PAYNE, Lewis ELLSEY, Thomas FORD, William KINCHELOE, and Joseph POLLARD. As coincidence would have it, the name G. DENEALE appears as "Test G DENEALE", after entries on motions by Nancy O'DANIEL, Administrix of the will of James' brother, John O'DANIEL in 1801. (Ann "Nancy" O'DANIEL was the daughter of John McINTOUSH. "G. DENEALE" was the brother of James DENEALE who married Theodosia CONYERS, and was the First Clerk of Fairfax County at this time and recorded the motions mentioned.)

Two documents, graciously provided by Don DENEAL of St. Louis, Missouri, are key to proving that James O'DANIEL did not marry Theodosia CONGERS/CONYERS. They are copies of the original Northern Neck Grant I:210 to James DENEAL of Fairfax County, (Virginia) 552 acres on 1 July 1772, and the will of James C. DENEALE, dated the twentieth day of July 1805.

In part, the NN Grant reads: "The Right Honourable Thomas Lord Fairfax Baron of Cameron in that Part of Great Britain called Scotland Proprietor of the Northern Neck of Virginia....Whereas James DENEAL of Fairfax County....& that the said David WAUGH conveyed the same to Capt Henry CONNER who by his last Will & Testament....to his Daughter Ann HOLLAND & the residue more or less to his Daughter Theodosia who marrying the said James DENEAL the Property of the said Residue is hereby vested in him....Given at my Office in Frederick County under my Hand & Seal Dated this First Day of July 1772. Fairfax ts: Tho. ___ Martan(?)" This grant documents both that Theodosian CONGERS was indeed Theodosia CONYERS, the daughter of Captain Henry CONYERS(CONNER) of Stafford County, and verifies her marriage to James DENEAL. Additional research proved that Theodosia was his fourth daughter, and third child by his second wife, Jennette PATTERSON(PATTISON).

The Last Will and Testament of James C. DENEALE reads in part, "In the name of God, I James C. DENEALE in the County of Fairfax, State of Virginia....to my beloved wife Priscilla DENEALE the tract of land....to my son William, two hundred acres of land in the State of Kentucky in Wilson and Washington counties....I give to my daughter Theodosia DENEALE the following....I hereby set my hand this twentieth day of July 1805....(sd) James C. DENEALE Witnesses John TYLER John WRENN". This son, William DENEALE, has been found to be William Scott DENEALE, erroneously named as William Scott O'DANIEL, the son of Theodosia CONGERS and James O'DANIEL in Tyler's Quarterly. The reference to his daughter Theodosia shows that she was most likely the daughter of James DENEALE and Theodosia CONYERS, and named after his wife. James had married Priscilla after Theodosia had passed away. The given name Theodosia is not found in the O'DANIEL family.

On April 2, 1754, James (O'DANIEL) DANIELL was in South Carolina, married with two children, when he petitioned for 200 acres of land on the Broad or Santee (Congaree) Rivers as recorded in Petitions for Land From the South Carolina Council Journals, Brent Holcomb, Volume IV, page 48. This fact alone should separate him from any controversy concerning the marriage to Theodosia.

In 1772, when James DENEAL was receiving his Northern Neck land grant, James (O'DANIEL) DANIELL was established in Camden District, South Carolina, raising his family, and increasing his land holdings; he died in 1798 in Hancock County, Georgia, will dated 1797, married to Nancy HARDWICK at the time of his death.

It seems certain that the orthography of O'DUNEAL (DENEALE) and O'DANIEL had been confused. In fact, the DENEALE surname, other than as listed in The Register of Overwharton Parish, Stafford Co., Virginia 1723-1758 and Sundry Historical and Genealogical Notes, has not been found as "O'DENEALE" according to contributor, Don DENEAL. James DENEALE died after 1825 in Fairfax County, Virginia. James O'DANIEL died in 1798 in Hancock County, Georgia. The DENEALE family does not appear to be related to the O'DANIEL family, but were contemporaries in Stafford, later, Prince William, and Fairfax Counties. In more recent findings, James O'DANIEL's nephew, James GUNNELL, a son of Henry GUNNELL and Catherine O'DANIEL married Ann DENEALE, the daughter of James DENEALE and Theodosia CONYERS. Another nephew, Stephen DANIEL, son of John O'DANIEL, married Anne Wise RATCLIFFE, a niece of Ann "Nancy" BOWLING WISE who was wrongly said to be the second wife of James' brother, John O'DANIEL. (Addressed in John's General Notes.)

Considering all of the above, the reported marriage of James O'DANIEL to Theodosia CONGERS/CONYERS/CONNER did not happen.

Fairfax HARRISON contributed the section entitled "A GROUP OF NORTHERN NECK FAMILIES" printed in TYLER'S QUARTERLY HISTORICAL and GENEALOGICAL MAGAZINE, VOLUME I., Editor: LYON G. TYLER, M. A., LL. D., RICHMOND, VA. 1920. Fairfax married Hester "Hetty" CARY, a daughter of John Brune CARY and Frances Eugenia DANIEL, and a third great-granddaughter of William O'DANIEL of Stafford County, Virginia, from the line of his son John. With the exceptions of the marriage of James O'DANIEL to Theodosian CONGERS and the second marriage of John O'DANIEL to Ann BOWLING, Fiarfax Harrison's information has proven to be correct concerning the DANIEL (O'DANIEL) family.

General Notes: Child - O'DANIEL

This "Child" O'Daniel represents one of the two children claimed by James O'Daniel, as James Daniel, in his petition for a land grant from the South Carolina Council in April 1754. No other information about this child has benn found. This child was most likely born in Fairfax County, Virginia where James was located in the early 1750s. This child was not listed in James Daniell's bible. His, or her, mother's name is not known.


General Notes: Child - Ann [Possible] DANIEL

CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE strongly suggests, but does not decisively prove, that Ann DANIEL, 1753-1839, who married Absalom EILAND, is a daughter of James DANIELL of Fairfield County, South Carolina. Location, interaction, and inter-family names are compelling. The case for Ann being James' daughter is presented below.

It is worth noting that Ann Daniel EILAND has not been found attached to any other DANIELL or DANIEL line of descent.

Any assistance, correction, or additional information are welcome and appreciated.

_________________

Based on the premise that Absalom EILAND's wife, Ann "Nancy" DANIEL born between 1750 and 1753, was James' daughter, she was probably born in Fairfax County, Virginia, where James was located in the early 1750s. The 1830 census of Middlebrook, Jones County, Georgia, page 450, enumerates Nancy EILAND's household and provides her age range as 70-80, born between 1750-1760.

James DANIELL of Fairfield County, South Carolina, was born James O'DANIEL in Stafford County, Virginia in 1721. He migrated from Fairfax County, Virginia to South Carolina about 1754 and died in Hancock County, Georgia in 1798. In records, he is often found as James DANIEL.

On 2 April 1754, James DANIEL claimed a wife and two children in his petition for a land grant to the South Carolina Council. The names of his wife and these children have not been found. Ann's birth in 1753 fits this record.

Was James' wife, the mother of Ann, named Ann? Or was it Elizabeth? In the Historical Collections of the Georgia Chapters Daughters of the American Revolution, Volume IV, page 12, a transcript of James DANIEL's Bible, said to be in possession of Mrs. D. F. Barrow, Athens, Georgia, states "James DANIEL was the first husband of Mrs. James Barrow, wife of James Barrow of Milledgeville, Ga. BIRTHS: Children of James DANIEL and wife Ann" "Jesse .....12-2-1754" is the first child listed. Other transcripts do not list "wife Ann." Attempts to verify the transcript have failed. James' Bible is said to have been donated to the University of Georgia Library by the James BARROW family. So far, despite personal visits and internet lookup requests, the university's Hargrett Rare Book & Manuscript Library has not been able to find James' Bible. A Mitchell family file there lists "Elizabeth" as James wife.

No record has been found to confirm the marriage of Absalom EILAND to Ann DANIEL of Fairfield County; however land records show the EILAND and DANIELL families in proximity from which they may have known each other or allowed Absalom and Ann to become acquainted.

Absalom EILAND was in South Carolina as early as 1749 when his father, George obtained a 350 acre land grant on the North side of the Santee (Congaree) River, bounded North by John BOWLES' land near Butler Creek.

On 5 May 1754, George claimed improvements to his 350 acres and pleaded poverty for failing to record the grant "of a tract near Congree [sic]"and praying for an extension of his warrant. He said "the said land he lives upon has been run out by Jacob SUMMERALL." His prayer was denied. George was subsquently granted another 350 acres located on waters of Stephens Creek in the fork of Noble's Creek [later called Horns Creek] and Cedar Creek located in Granville County. This land is located about 10 mile west of current Edgefield, South Carolina. George and his family resided there until 1774 when George sold the land to Absalom, who in turn sold the land several months later to John RAINSFORD. James DANIEL and his nephew William had lands within 20 miles east southeast of Edgefield in addition to holdings in the Fairfield and Richland county areas.

On 10 August 1770, Absalom became a landowner in his own right, receiving a grant of 100 acres in St. Johns Parish, Berkeley County, South Carolina . No other location was given for this land. St. John's Parish is on the Santee River below the junction of the Congaree (Saluda) and Wateree Rivers in the area of Dorchester. Absalom paid the memorial for this land on 8 April 1771. Names indexed on the grant are John BREMAR, Absalom MILAND [sic, EILAND], Peter GREEDING, Bengman MERCAIN, and Andrew STEVENSON. [Effective in 1767[?], headright grants of 100 acres could be given to anyone aged 18 or over. A grant of 100 acres no longer implied that a person was married or had a second person with them.]

In August 1774, Absalom bought his father's 350 acres in the fork of Horns [Nobles] and Cedar creeks in Edgefield County, South Carolina. He then sold it to John RAINSFORD, recorded 21 April 1775. A reference to this sale recorded on 3 Dec. 1782 shows Benjamin GREEN of Burke County, Georgia, planter and son and heir of Thomas GREEN of St. Matthews Parish, Georgia, planter, decd., deeded to John RAINSFORD of Horns Creek, 96 District, South Carolina, 350 acres bought from Absalom EILAND of Colletons [sic] County, South Carolina, on Cedar Creek and Nobles Creek. [SC DEED ABSTRACTS 1776-1783, Books Y-4 through H-5, SC Deeds H-5, 9-11; Brent H. Holcomb, Columbia: SCMAR, 1994, p. 239] This shows Absalom living in Colleton County in 1775, perhaps on his 1770 grant of 100 acres.
Per Eiland family research, Absalom EILAND married Ann DANIEL, daughter of James DANIEL of Fairfield County, South Carolina in 1775. A later record states: "EILAND, Absolom, Hancock Cty RS, w.(ife) Ann DANIEL." [Information on Some Georgia Pioneers, p. 58, page heading is "Family Heads 1805 Georgia"]

Absalom and Ann resided in Orangeburgh District in 1778: The SC Early Census Index, 1778, lists: Absalom EILANDS State: SC; County: Orangeburg District; Township: No Township Listed; Year: 1778 [Jackson, Ron V., Accelerated Indexing Systems, comp.. South Carolina Census, 1790-1890 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: The Generations Network, Inc., 1999. Original data: Compiled and digitized by Mr. Jackson and AIS from microfilmed schedules of the U.S. Federal Decennial Census, territorial/state censuses, and/or census substitutes.]
Absalom and Ann remained in South Carolina until at least 1778-1779 when he is named on the list of Petit Jurors Between the North and South Fork of Edisto River.

"Absalom EILAND was in Wilkes Co., Ga. by 1779, as he later filed a claim for loss due to Indian raids in that year. Absalom also served as a Revolutionary Soldier in Ga., and is included in the D.A.R. Patriot Index. He was given grant No. 259 for 287 1/2 acres in Washington Co., Ga., June 28, 1785. This tract was crossed by Island Creek. This land touched land of his Brother John EILAND and of his Brother Isaiah EILAND, both Brothers' award land for having served as Revolutionary War Soldiers."" [Cecil Little, Clanton, Alabama]

Ann is next named with Absalom on 2 May 1787 in Georgia when "Absolom EILAND and his wife Ann" of Washington County sold 287 and a half acres of land in Greene County, Georgia to "James DANIELL of Fairfield County, South Carolina." Levi DANIELL, James' son, and George HARDWICK, James' brother-in-law, witnessed the sale. (Greene County, Georgia, Deed Book 1, p. 34) This land was later in Hancock County. This record clearly associates Absalom and Ann Daniel EILAND with James DANIELL of Fairfield County, South Carolina and his son Levi. Coupled with the birth of Levi Daniel EILAND in the early 1790s they clearly support a family attachment.

About 1793-95, Absalom and Ann named a son Levi Daniel EILAND. He is believed to be named for Levi DANIELL, "Ann's favorite and youngest brother" who witnessed the 2 May 1787 land sale. This and the record above are the most compelling evidence that Ann is James DANIELL's daughter.

Although James had lands in Georgia in the mid 1780s, James did not move his residence from South Carolina to Hancock County, Georgia until after the 1790 census. He signed his Will 11 May 1797 and died there before 5 March 1798.

For the record, neither Ann nor Absalom EILAND are mentioned in James DANIELL's Will. That may be of no particular consequence if Ann and Absalom, wealthy in his own right, had previously received property or money representing a share of James' estate.

Jones County, Georgia was established in 1807 on territory ceded by the Creek Indians. The territory was distributed by land lottery in lots of 202.5 acres. Absalom and Ann moved to Jones County, Georgia. Absalom is in Jones County records by 1809 and died there before 1 August 1814.

Ann remained in Jones County and died there before 4 November 1839.

The mother of Ann DANIEL, born 1753, is not known. In fact, none of the mothers of James DANIELL's children are known. What is certain, though, is that Ann "Nancy" DANIEL's mother was not James' widow Nancy DANIELL. The widow Nancy was about four years younger than Ann "Nancy" Daniel EILAND. James BARROW married the widow, Nancy DANIELL. She was Nancy HARDWICK, born 6 Jan 1758 in Westmoreland County, Virginia and died 18 April 1814 in Baldwin County, Georgia. Bible records prove this. Levi DANIELL, Ann's brother, as this compiler concludes he is, was born 21 Dec 1759. He refers to James' widow as "my step-mother, Nancy DANIELL" in his Will dated 8 December 1800, necessarily meaning she was also his older sister Ann's step-mother.

====

From the research papers Cecil Little sent to Jere Fletcher of Tyler, Texas in March 1995:
"One will discover many names repeated in the various Eiland Family units. "Daniel" comes from the maiden name of the Wife of Absalom EILAND. She was Nancy Ann DANIEL. Nancy had a favorite brother named Levi DANIEL, so she and Absalom named a Son born 1791 Levi Daniel EILAND. Absalom's Son, Enoch EILAND, named his first Son born 1802 John Daniel EILAND then his Grandson Zachariah named a Son John Daniel EILAND."
[Comments: John Daniel EILAND is an interesting reference for Mr. Little to include here.Levi DANIELL's cousin John DANIEL married Levi's widow, Martha Pearson COOK of Hancock County, Georgia. John Daniel EILAND's namesake?
John and Martha DANIEL's 19 year old daughter, Martha C. DANIEL, died in 1827 in Clinton, Jones County, Georgia., where Ann Nancy EILAND received mail. Relevant?
Juliet Anna DANIELL, daughter of Levi and granddaughter of James DANIELL, married Col. Warren JOURDAN in Jones County, Georgia on 24 June 1823. Ann Daniel EILAND's being a daughter of James DANIELL of Fairfield County, South Carolina, would have made her Juliet her niece. Was Juliet in Jones County in conjunction with the family of Absalom and Ann EILAND? RLD]


General Notes: Child - Jesse DANIELL

Jesse DANIELL, born 2 December 1754, is a son of James O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia. Jesse's mother's name has not been found. James migrated to South Carolina circa 1754, dropped the O' from his name, and spelled it DANIELL. Jesse is named in James' Bible transcription published in the The History of Hancock County, Georgia, referencing an old Bible "which originally belonged to James DANIELL."

There is precious little information available on Jesse. He is first found witnessing deeds in 1770 in South Carolina.

On March 23, 1773, William DANIEL and his cousin, Jesse DANIEL, son of James DANIELL, were witnesses to the lease by Moses KIRKLAND to Arthur SIMPKINS of land located between the Savannah and Saluda Rivers. William, a son of John O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia, is James' nephew.

James DANIELL and his oldest son, Jese (Jesse) DANIELL were witnesses to a lease of land by Reuben GILDER to William SMITH on June 2, 1774. The leased land was off Enoree River on Abners Creek between the Broad and Saludy Rivers.

James migrated to the Congarees in 1754 and William later joined him there. [Record posted by Audrey Pool, 4 July 2004, http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/SC-Genealogy/2004-07/1089000655]

After 1786, Jesse has not been found in South Carolina records. He may have gone to Georgia with his father and brother, Levi. Both are on land records there in Green and Washington counties between 1784 and 1787 when James had acquired land there.

In the "History of Hancock County, Georgia", Fannie Phillips MITCHELL contributed the DANIELL family information. In it, she relates the story that Jesse DANIELL may have been killed by either Indians or the British. "When I was quite a small child my great-grandmother used to tell a story of an attack by Indians (I believe) and how some of the children were saved by an old Negro nurse who hid them in a depression in the ground overgrown by weeds. I have a rather hazy notion as to who these people were, but I know they were my great-grandmother's close kin, and I remember the story very distinctly." (Note: Fannie Phillips MITCHELL was the great-granddaughter of Catherine B. DANIELL, whose father, Levi, was Jesse's brother.)

The British and Loyalists had used the Indians as allies during the Revolutionary War. The tribe involved here may have been either Seminole or Uchee. The "History of Wilkinson County, Georgia" states "In addition to this tribe it seems that the bloody Uchee tribe which was usually closely allied with the Seminoles was doing its part in this immediate section. On through 1788 the war was raging. White's Statistics of Georgia, pages 677, 678, tells of the bloody scenes occurring in the neighborhood of Kemp's fort in Washington county."

Combining the Fannie MITCHELL family story and the fact that Jesse's father, James DANIELL, had purchased land in 1784 in Green County and in 1787 in Washington County, with Jesse's brother, Levi, witnessing the 1787 deed. It is reasonable to believe that Jesse may have been in Washington County, Georgia in the late 1780's.

The following article from the Augusta Chronicle of March 29, 1788, page 2, column 3, is a possibility for what happened to Jesse DANIELL:
"Extract of a Letter from Washington County, dated March 26.
The Indians seem to be very numerous in this county ---last Sunday week they killed and scalped Lieutenant Hogan near Kemp's Fort; on Friday after a Mr. Daniell met with same cruel death; and on Tuesday last they killed Mr. David Jackson's family, consisting of his wife and four children, his brother and two Negroes, and scalped another young girl.
On the same day, Capt. Wood of the State troops, with four of his men, accompanied by Capt. Kemp, went reconnoitering on the river Oconee, and near the Long Bluff came on sign of about 30 or 35 Indians -- upon which Capt. Wood's party turned back towards the fort, but had rode but a small distance when the Indians fired at them, and killed one man on the spot. Capt. Wood is missing; we have since found his horse without saddle and bridle, and very much bloody from which circumstance we suppose he was either killed or taken. The Savages have burnt three houses near Irwin's fort, and killed a number of cattle and hogs."

The above article, transcribed by "Cherl" and provided by Tuck Wilson, is indexed under "Cmr. J. DANIELL" in the index books at Washington Memorial Library. These books are found in the Richmond County section of the library and the story is repeated in "Historical Collections of Georgia" by George White, New York: Pudney & Russell, 1854, c1853, 723 pgs, page 677.
NOTE: Diane C. Bradford states that this "Mr. DANIELL" is her 4th great-grandfather, John DANIEL, RS of Washington County, GA, who was killed by Indians near Daniel's fort in Mar 1788, a story contained in DAR Application #161120 dated Dec 23, 1920 and accepted by the National DAR on Feb 9, 1921, submitted by Miss Sarah Marguerite Smith of Tennille, Washington County, Georgia. Other than family lore in the DAR application, no specific documentation proves this. She may be correct, but, other than the indexed "Cmr. J.", there is no information at hand identifying "Mr. DANIELL". "J." may be John or Jesse. The spelling DANIELL may help identify this as Jesse whose family regularly used the DANIELL spelling. Cheryl posed an interesting question: "How did the person indexing these newspapers know or come up with the "Cmr. J" part of Mr. DANIELL's name since the article doesn't give that? What does the abbreviation "Cmr" represent?)

If Jesse DANIELL died about the time of the Revolutionary War as believed, he would have been about 34 years old if killed in 1788. Whether he ever married or had children is not known.


General Notes: Child - Sarah DANIELL

Sarah DANIELL, born 4 May 1756, is a daughter of James O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia. James migrated to South Carolina circa 1754, dropped the O' from his name, and spelled it DANIELL. Sarah is named in James DANIELL's Bible transcription published in the The History of Hancock County, Georgia. Sarah married Captain James TAYLOR, becoming his second wife.

Sarah died 6 December 1793, only three weeks after giving birth to her seventh child, her namesake, Sarah, born 15 November 1793. Doubly tragic, her daughter died soon after in 1794.

Sarah and her husband are named in her father's Last Will & Testament in Hancock County, Georgia in 1797. "Pages 284-286: Will of James DANIELL of Hancock County ...to the heirs of my daughter Sarah and James TAYLOR.... James DANIELL (SEAL), dated May 11, 1797. Wit: Wm. BIGGINS, Wm. JONES, James H. JONES. Proven March 5, 1798."


General Notes: Child - Jose DANIELL

Jose DANIELL, born 6 December 1757, is a son of James O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia. James migrated to South Carolina circa 1754, and dropped the O' from his surname, and spelled it DANIELL. Jose's birth is recorded in a transcription published in the The History of Hancock County, Georgia, referencing an old Bible "which originally belonged to James DANIELL".

Although Jose is not found as "Joseph" in any family reference, records naming him as Joseph DANIELL or DANIEL corrolating to his location, neighbors, and his death indicate he was Joseph. Fourteen references have been found for Jose DANIELL (1757-1799). Ten name him as "Jose"; and four as "Joseph."

Jose appraised the estate of Nathan CENTER, per an abstract from Green's "History of Richland County", page 213: "Box 14, No. 147. CENTER, Nathan. Will, December 21, 1782-January 16, 1783. Wit.: Solomon PETERS, Elizabeth Jackson, Lucy HOWELL. Ex.: Thomas TAYLOR, James TAYLOR, William HOWELL. Sons: Nathan, John, William. Dau.:Elizabeth. Wife: Martha. Property appraised by R. EVANS, John BOYD, Ethel HEATH, Jose DANIEL."

The 1790 Census lists Jose DANIEL in Richland County, Camden District, South Carolina with no family and 28 slaves. No record of Jose being married or having children has been found. Jose's neighbors, the ten named each side of him were: Duncan LIVINGSTON, Petigrew SALISBURRY, Rich WHITEMORE, Hix CHAPPELL, John HOPKINS, Green RIVES, Thomas McCLENNON, Wm. NAZEY, Jacob MYERS, Tho. HUTCHISON, Jose DANIEL, Robt. HOWELL, Wm. WESTON, Silas RIVES, Sarah WESTON, Nathaniel CHAMBLISS, Moses CROFT, Wm. ADAMS, Martyn STATLER, Junr., John HIRONS, and Jonathan WISE.

[Note: Mary HOWELL was not named in the Will, but referred to as "my beloved wife." RLD]
Jose DANIELL was Robert HOWELL's neighbor in 1790, contributing to the thought that Jose and Joseph.are the same person.

QUESTIONS:
Does Richard DANIEL's legacy to Arthur HOWELL (Jr.) reflect a family relationship for Robert and Arthur to Joseph DANIELL, called "my beloved cousin" in Arthur's Will?
Who is the link to Joseph and Arthur HOWELL (Jr.) being cousins? Arthur's father died before 9 Mar 1753, wife Sarah, maiden name not found.
Is Martha HOWELL, wife of William, Jose DANIELL's sister born 22 Jan 1762? Martha HOWELL and Joseph (Jose?)DANIELL are both executors of Arthur HOWELL (Jr.)'s Will. Joseph is called "cousin."*
*"Cousin" in the 1700s was used to mean "nephew or niece." [Virginia Historical Genealogies, John Bennett Boddie, p. ix] How was Jose DANIELL related to Arthur HOWELL?

Jose DANIELL was named executor of the estate of John MIERS in his Last Will and Testament, dated 1 March 1797. Edwin L. Green published this in A History of Richland County, South Carolina: Will Book C, "Page 151. John MIERS (MEYER, MYER, MEYERS) Sr.. Will, March 1, 1797- April 5, 1797. Wit: Martyn H. LARY, William HOLLIDAY, John CULPEPPER. Ex: Jose DANIELL. Nieces: Patsey, dau. of Jacob MIERS; Catherine MEIRS. Step-dau.: Narsessee HARRISON and Ann Harriet HARRISON." For expansion, the SC Archives provide: S108093 Reel: 0021 Frame: 00511 item:00 1797 C. MIERS, John of Richland County (MSS Will: Book C, Page 151; Estate Packet: Box 21, Pkg 512) (2 Frames). Names indexed: MIERS, John/MIERS, Patsy/MIERS, Jacob/MIERS, Cathareine (sic)/HARRISON, Nursessee/HARRISON, Ann Harriot (sic)/GOODWYN, William/ Nan (Slave)/LARY, Martyn H./HOLLADAY, William/CULPEPER, John/DANIELE, Jose. Locations: Richland County." The "DANIELE" here may be "DANIELL" on the original, the second "L" being mistaken as "E" when transcribed. The MYERS families were neighbors of Jose in the 1790 census. When Jose died in 1799, Jacob MEYERS was appointed administrator for John MEYERS. (Richland County Will Book D, page 22)

Jose, along with his brother, Levi DANIELL, and William HARDWICK Jr. were named executors of the 1797 LW&T of James DANIELL of Hancock County, Georgia in which he was given "three hundred acres of land lying on the Congaree River and 400 acres in a place called 'The Ridge' and ten Negro slaves viz Buchrage and his wife Magga, and their three children, also a Negro man named Sippia and Judy his wife and their children Sarah, Stepney?, and Long Tom and Shaba, also one feather bed to him and his heirs forever."

The death of Jose DANIELL was reported in both the South Carolina Gazette of April 5, 1799: "Died in Charleston, on Tues. the 26th ult. Mr. Jose DANIEL of the Congaree." and in the "City Gazette and Daily Advertiser" (Charleston of 1799): "Died on March 26 (issue of March 28) in Charleston Mr. Joseph DANIEL of the Congarees." These two records also present that Jose is Joseph.

On April 6, 1799, Levi DANIELL, along with Matthew HOWELL, were named administrators of the estate of Jose DANIELL in Richland County, South Carolina. Recorded in Will Book C, page 233. (Edwin L. Green in "A History of Richland County South Carolina" page 236, with and added note of "Cf. Book D, pg. 75")

On December 23, 1801, Robert HENDRICK, Jesse TAYLOR and James TAYLOR, Jr. were named administrators for the estate of Jose DANIELL. (Edwin L. Green in "A History of Richland County South Carolina" page 239) Levi DANIELL had died on 10 December 1800. Matthew HOWELL was the other original administrator for this estate who also seems to have been replaced. Recorded in Will Book D, page 75.

Jose died about 14 months after his father, apparently unexpected and intestate. A record of suit against the estate of his father James DANIELL is recorded in Hancock County, Georgia, Deed Book C, p. 543. "We, James TAYLOR and Matthew HOWELL of South Carolina, and the said HOWELL being an administrator of the goods and chattles of Jose DANIELL, deceased, have appointed Doctor Robert HENRICK (HENDRICK) of the same place, our true and lawful attorney, for us, in our names jointly, to ask, demand, sue for, recover and receive such legacies & c which said James TAYLOR and Matthew HOWELL jointly or either in own right or as administrator for the said Jose DANIELL, may be entitled by law to receive from the estate of James DANIELL, late of State of Georgia, deceased. This 8th Jun 1801. Wit: Peter BREMER. Recorded 15th Jul 1801."

This Deed of Conveyance, said to start on Edgefield South Carolina Deed Bk. 29, page 494, was transcribed by Robert Daniell from electronic copies of original pages graciously provided by Martha Taylor of La Pine, Alabama. Portions of the edges of the pages were not visible, causing missing page numbers and omission of words where indicated by "..."

Known relationships of Jose DANIELL to individuals in the above may lead to additional discoveries:

William DANIEL, husband of Lucretia BELL, a grandson of John O'DANIEL of Fairfax, Virginia, cousin of Jose DANIELL, and grandnephew of James DANIELL, (died 1798) of Hancock County, Georgia.

Capt. James TAYLOR, a brother-in-law, married 2 Dec 1772 in Columbia, SC to Sarah DANIELL who died 6 Dec 1793. James DANIELL's 1797 Will included bequeaths: "Item. I give and bequeath unto my son-in-law James TAYLOR three Negroes, (viz) Jack, Hannah, and Jane to him and his heirs forever. Item. I give and bequeath unto the heirs of my daughter Sarah and James TAYLOR five Negroes viz: Hollon?, Jubiter, Abram, Solomon and Prince to them and their heirs forever."

Dr. Robert HENDRICK, brother-in-law, married to Mary DANIELL, 21 May 1795, in Columbia, South Carolina. James DANIELL's 1797 Will included bequeaths: "Item. I give and bequeath to my son in law Robert HANDRICK one tract of land on Alligator Creek which land he has my titles for. Also 50 acres of land on the Broad River to him and his heirs forever." and "Item. I give and bequeath to my granddaughter Patsy HANDRICK three Negroes viz Joe, Ruker, Fillis? I also give her one half of the Negroes that I have lent to my wife after the death of my wife, to her and her heirs forever." Both Mary DANIELL and her daughter Patsy HENDRICK were deceased before this Deed of conveyance was filed.

"Mary HOWELL the Relict of William HOWELL" is proven to be Mary STANLEY, daughter of Samuel STANLEY and Unknown PAISLEY. She was the mother of Louisa Maria HENDRICK.

General Notes: Child - Levi DANIELL, Esq. RS-SC

Levi DANIELL, born 21 December 1759, was a son of James O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia. James migrated to South Carolina circa 1754, and dropped the O' from his name, spelling it DANIELL. Levi's birth is recorded in a transcription published in the The History of Hancock County, Georgia, referencing an old Bible "which originally belonged to James DANIELL". Levi is the only son of James known to have a male descendant line.

Levi DANIELL was born in South Carolina and moved to Hancock County, Georgia after the Revolutionary War. There is some confusion as to his birth date as his daughter's Bible has him born in 1769 (too young to be a soldier in the Revolution), but his father's Bible has him born in 1759 which groups him in with his other siblings and makes him old enough to have served in the Revolutionary War. Levi was "a true patriot" per his obituary and is believed to have served in South Carolina, but his service record has not been found. "Levi Daniel 12/21/1769 11/1800" is named on page 316, Volume 1 of "Georgia Revolutionary War Soldiers' Graves", compiled by H. Ross Arnold, Jr. & H. Clifton Burnham. c. 1993 by the Georgia Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. Levi died in 1800, but a Levi DANIEL drew in the 1805 Georgia land lottery as a veteran; if our Levi, it would have been for his orphans but "orphans of" is not indicated. [http://www.1805georgialandlottery.com/d.shtml] Levi's father, James DANIELL, older than militia age, provided Public Service to the Continental Army and his sister was married to Captain James TAYLOR of Richland, South Carolina. It would be surprising if Levi did not serve along side his in-laws and cousins known to have served. Comments by James L. Haynsworth in the article "ORGANIZATION OF SOUTH CAROLINA'S REVOLUTIONARY ARMY" add credence to Levi's service despite the lack of a record found: "On June 6, 1775 the Provincial Congress of South Carolina (later to become the General Assembly) ordered 2 regiments of foot and one regiment of cavalry raised for the protection of the province. The first two regiments were recruited and officered, for the most part, be residents of Charlestown and its vicinity. (See ALL IN THE FAMILY on page 3). Command of the two regiments was given to Christopher Gadsden and William Moultrie. The third regiment, called "Rangers", was commanded by Col. William Thomson and was recruited primarily from the area around Orangeburg. In November, 1775 a regiment of artillery was raised, and command was given to Lt. Col. Owen Roberts. Soon it became necessary to enlist still more troops, and in February, 1776 two additional regiments of "expert riflemen" were raised and were commanded by Thomas Sumter and Isaac Huger. At the same time, two more units of the artillery regiment were organized at Georgetown and Beaufort, commanded by Capt. Paul Trapier and Capt. William Harden. On September 14, 1776 these six regiments were taken onto the Continental establishment; that is, they became a part of the regular army or "Continental Line" which had been organized by the Continental Congress. The South Carolina militia was composed of some 10 regiments of troops, each representing a geographical area in the state. All adult males were subject to militia service, and were called up periodically. They served for a specified period of time and went home. The militiamen, who were part-time soldiers., correspond to the National Guard or Reserves of today, while the Continental troops, who enlisted for a specified number of years, or for the duration of the war, served continuously and correspond to our regular army." (THE CAROLINA HERALD, Volume 2 Number 3 Summer 1973, the quarterly newsletter of the South Carolina Genealogical Society)

Levi's younger life in South Carolina, education, and service record are a mystery. He moved to Hancock County, Georgia with his father and many neighbors when the new Indian lands were opened up and granted to Revolutionary War veterans, about 1790. His homestead was on Island Creek, a short distance off the Oconee River. His neighbors included his father and stepmother, James and Nancy DANIELL, his future in-laws, Captain John COOK and his wife Martha, and John HARBIRT (executor of Levi's will) and his wife Sarah, all from Fairfield County, South Carolina. In 1794, the tax record lists him as one of only 18 people in the county with 15 of more slaves. He also acquired land around Shoulderbone Creek and in 1796, paid taxes for lands in both Lewis' and Sanford's districts.

The 1794 Tax Roll for Hancock County, Georgia, page 52, lists James DANIEL, 47 slaves, 862 1/2 acres on Island Creek, tax paid $17.07, and 300 acres at Oconey Swamp in Washington County tax paid $3.55 and a quarter cent. Levi was listed beside his father, one slave, no land and taxed 62 and 1/2 cents. Separately, Levi is named on page 69, with 169 acres adjoining John RAGAN on Island creek. His tax was 1 pound, 18 shillings, 4 pence. Ten years earlier this creek was listed as EILAND creek: "GOULSBY, Jonathan. 287 acres, Washington Co., bounded N. Wm. MORGAN, E. & S. vacant, W. Jno. RAGAN. Cut by Eiland creek, survey 257. Nov. 8, 1784, p. 131."

On 11 September 1796, Levi married Martha Pearson COOK. In 1797, his father James DANIELL died, leaving a large estate to Levi and his siblings. On 10 Dec 1800, Levi died at age 41, only two days after making his will and only four years after his marriage to Martha Pearson COOK. He leaves three children under three years of age and a twenty-three year old widow. (Tuck Wilson)

The only known indication that Levi may have been a "Dr." is in this comment referring to a Texas DAR Index appended to the Revolutionary War record of Levi's father-in-law:
Georgia Revolutionary Soldiers, Sailors, Patriots, & Descendants, Vol I by Mary Carter 929.3758 C324G:
COOK, John: RS Capt VA, NC, SC, c. 1740 - 1799 Hancock Co., GA. In the battles of Eutaw Springs, Cowpens, Guilford Courthouse, & others. Married 1st Betty Brown and 2nd Martha Ann Pearson.

provided by Alexis Spiritas, 12.28.2008]

The History of Hancock County, Georgia, page 138, records three children named in Levi DANIELL's Bible:
Jesse Daniell Austin....Sept. 9, 1794
James Daniell Austin..July 11, 1797
Caty Daniell Austin....March 4, 1799
Note: James and Caty were not AUSTIN. Levi and Martha were married two years after Jesse was born. Levi names his children, James, Catherine, and Juliett in his LW&T dated 8 December 1800. Jesse Daniell AUSTIN, living, was not named."my grandson Jesse Daniell AUSTON, son of Betty AUSTON", as named in his grandfather's LW&T, was Levi's nephew. The Austin surname was apparently carried down for Levi's children as well.

The 1794 Tax Roll for Hancock County, Georgia, page 52, lists James DANIEL, 47 slaves, 862 1/2 acres on Island Creek, tax paid $17.07, and 300 acres at Oconey Swamp in Washington County tax paid $3.55 and a quarter cent. Levi was listed beside his father, one slave, no land and taxed 62 and 1/2 cents. Separately, Levi is named on page 69, with 169 acres adjoining John RAGAN on Island creek. His tax was 1 pound, 18 shillings, 4 pence. Ten years earlier this creek was listed as EILAND creek

These land records are found in the work of Helen and Tim Marsh, LAND DEED GENEALOGY OF HANCOCK COUNTY, GEORGIA, 1997, Southern Historical Press, Inc., Greenville, SC, pp. 92, 136, 156, 230, 241, 279.": "Hancock County, Georgia, Deed Book B, p. 356: 20 April 1796. Jesse CONNEL of Hancock county to Levi DANIEL of the same place for the sum of one hundred and twenty five dollars for a tract of land in Hancock County containing two hundred acres, being part of a tract originally granted to John BRYANT dated 17th May 1784 for four hundred and sixty acres.

Levi DANIELL, along with Joseph DENSON and Hubert REYNOLDS, witnessed the Will of Thomas HARBIRT, Sr. written 2 April 1797. Levi, John HUMPHRIES, and Mat KINCHIN appraised the estate as well. John (Jr.), George and Thomas HARBIRT were executors of this will, and John HARBIRT, Levi's neighbor, would later be an executor of Levi DANIELL's estate.

On April 6, 1799, Levi DANIELL, along with Matthew HOWELL, were named administrators of the estate of Jose DANIELL, Levi's brother, in Richland County, South Carolina. Recorded in Will Book C, page 233. (Edwin L. Green in "A History of Richland County South Carolina" with and added note of "Cf Book D, pg. 75")

Levi's father died before 5 May 1798 when his Will was proven. In it, James DANIELL wrote:
"I give and bequeath to my son Levy DANIELL twenty five Negro slaves (Viz) Toby, Sampson, Simon, July, Cato, Flory, Hannah, John, Mary, David, Will, Rose, Elick, Seller, Moses, Joe, Dan, Jack, Milly, March, Sinthy, Vamer, Old Tom, dino? Harriatt, and two feather beds furniture. Also one half of the Tract of Land I now live on the whole of which contains three bounties. Also, I lend him the use of half of a tract of land lying on the Oconey River in Washington County During the time of Eighteen years."
"I Give and bequeath unto my son Levi DANIELL after the Death of My Wife the ballance of the three bounties Whereon I now live and that half of the stock that I lent my Wife during her life."

Hancock County Will Book AA page 36-39 records: January 3rd 1799. "Then received of William HARDWICK, Jr. as executor of James DANIELL decd twenty five Negroes, stock of every kind and all my legacy that was will'd to me by said James DANIELL decd. I also received of said HARDWICK six hundred and sixty seven dollars on approved account which money was paid out of money belonging to the estate of said James DANIELL decd. Given under my hand this 3rd day of January 1799. Levi DANIELL". Also: "We do certify that we have in our hands the balance of the money that was left in the house and has been collected after takin out the account of Levi DANIELL. Given under our hand. Levi DANIELL Nancy DANIELL".

An abstracted obituary of Levi DANIELL from "Marriages and Deaths, 1763-1820" by Mary Bondurant Warren, from extant Georgia newspapers, page 27, reads: "DANIELL, Levi, Esq, d. at his seat at Hancock Co. 12/10/1800, wife and children, "a true patriot". Augusta Chronicle 12/27/1800.

Levi served as a Justice of the Peace for Hancock County until his untimely death.

The Will of Levi DANIELL, 1801 Hancock County Will Book AAA page 37, was provided by Tuck Wilson:
In the name of God Amen I Levi DANIELL of the State of Georgia and the county of Hancock, being at this time in a low state of health, but of sound and disposing mind and memory, do make and ordain this to be my last will and testament in manner and form following (Viz) I lend unto my beloved wife Martha DANIELL during her natural life one hundred and fifty acres of land, including the dwelling house and premises whereon I now live on Island Creek to be laid off on a square adjoining a dividing line that may be hereafter run between my step-mother Nancy DANIELL's and myself, agreeable to my father's will, and to adjoin the lands of John HARBIRT, and also I lend to my said wife during her natural life the following Negroes (to wit) Abby, Ivey, Lucy, March, Sam, Friday, George, Flora the younger, and Maggy, and after my wife's decease, it is my will and desire that the said land and Negroes be equally divided between my three children hereinafter named.

Signed, sealed, pronounced, and declared in the presence of
John LAMAR
Stephen HORTON Levi DANIELL
Phillip COOK
Georgia, Hancock County - the forgoing will proven in open court and ordered to be recorded this 5th day of January 1801.
M. GREENE CCO

(Note: Executor, Robert McGINTY, and witnesses, John LAMAR and Stephen HORTON, are members of the Island Creek Baptist Church, as was Levi's father, James, and step-mother Nancy. Phillip COOK is Levi's brother-in-law.).

At a Court of Ordinary, January 5, 1801, letters testamentary were granted to Robert McGINTY and John HARBIRT to carry into effect the Will of Levi DANIELL. Thomas LAMAR, John RAGAN, Henry LOW, & Lazarus BATTLE were appointed to appraise the estate.

The estate records of Levi DANIELL are very interesting and revealing. The estate was kept "open" for many years, operating like a business, providing money for the food, clothing, and education of the very young minors. The slaves bequeathed to the children were rented out annually for a good bit of money and other slaves worked the farm. Levi DANIELL must have had a very prosperous farm that kept producing for the estate as it sold hundreds of bushels of corn and thousands of pounds of cotton. It sold brandy, cornmeal, and even rented smithy tools. I suspect that Levi had a store that sold these things and that he got it from his father. Both died with many people owing them small (and large) amounts of money, as if the DANIELLs were extending credit. Levi had 57 accounts and notes of people owing him money at the time of his death. There is much in the Hancock County Will Books documenting all this. see AAA page 36-38, AAAA page 73, E page 126,146,151, F page 200.

The way the money was spent is even more interesting. Every penny was accounted for and much of Hancock County Guardian Book B is filled with this. Levi's children were boarded, well educated, and well dressed.

Here are two estate accounting reports of the estate of Levi DANIELL. Apparently, the estate was left open until the children were either married or 21 years old. The slaves of the children were hired out and the farm paid out for the raising and education of the children and it was highly profitable. (Tuck Wilson)

Baldwin Co. and Hancock Co. are separated by a river. It could be that the Levi DANIELL land was on both sides of the river. There were several acres in the tax digest listed for him in Baldwin County. It could be that they moved across the river into Baldwin Co. There are a few DANIELLs in Baldwin Co., also. In fact in 1810 the tax roll lists James, Catherine, Juliette, and Levi, dec'd. on the Tax List for Capt. GUNNS District. There is no 1810 Census for Baldwin Co., because that census was destroyed by the British in 1812. As a result, the Tax List is the next best thing to determine who was in the county at that time. In Capt. HILL's District there is a William DANIELL, as yet unidentified. In Baldwin County's 1820 Census there is a Jesse DANIEL. Jesse is most likely Jesse Daniell Austin DANIEL, grandson of James DANIELL, d. 1798. I think Washington, Greene, Hancock, and Baldwin counties were where our Levi DANIELL family lived. Levi's grave has not been located but it was probably in the now destroyed DANIELL Cemetery, along with his father James, on Mrs. Tallulah West's place on Island Creek. (Teresa Griffis)

Levi's widow, Martha Pearson COOK, remarried to Levi's cousin John (Jack) DANIEL who was living in Hancock County. Jack became the guardian of Levi DANIELL's children. There is a suggestion that he and Martha also became the guardian of Levi's sister, Betty Daniell Austin's child (Jesse Daniell AUSTIN). Jack and Martha then had six of their own. (Tuck Wilson) 3879


General Notes: Child - Martha DANIELL

Martha DANIELL, born 22 January 1762, is a daughter of James O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia. James migrated to South Carolina circa 1754, dropped the O' from his surname, and spelled it DANIELL. Martha is named in James DANIELL's Bible transcription published in the The History of Hancock County, Georgia., but is not named in his Last Will & Testament in Hancock County, Georgia in 1797. No other record concerning her has been located. She likely died before 1797.

Possible clue: Abstract from Richland County Will Book B: "Page 235. Arthur HOWELL. Will, March 22, 1792-n. d. Wit.: Robt. HOWELL, John HOWELL, Wm. MEYER. Ex.: William HOWELL, Martha HOWELL, Joseph DANIELL. Wife: Mary. Son: John. Brother: William (whose wife was Martha). Cousin: Joseph DANIELL." (History of Richland County", p. 226-7)
QUESTION: If this Joseph is Jose DANIELL, a neighbor and the son of James DANIELL, then who is the link to Joseph being Arthur, Jr.'s cousin? Arthur's father, Arthur HOWELL, d. bef 9 Mar 1753, married Sarah, last name not found. Another consideration: Jose (Joseph?) DANIELL had a sister named Martha, born 22 Jan 1762. Is she this Martha HOWELL?

SPECULATION: NEW ASSIGNMENTS AND RATIONALE, 10 Dec 2005:

(1) Martha DANIELL, previously listed as Martha Elizabeth, wife of Unknown AUSTON and mother of Jesse Daniell AUSTON, is now listed as unmarried and without the middle name "Elizabeth."

(2) Betty DANIELL, wife of AUSTON and mother of Jesse, is now separately listed as a possible daughter of James DANIELL and his second wife, Nancy HARDWICK.

(3) Martha Elizabeth DANIELL - There is no proof that Martha DANIELL was "Martha Elizabeth," the middle name Elizabeth is deleted. Other than speculation, there is no way to support the assignment of "Betty AUSTON" as Martha Elizabeth. In reconsidering "Martha Elizabeth", I believe it necessary for both Martha and Betty to be individually named in the family file by other than by a comment in Martha's General Notes.

(4) Betty Daniell AUSTON - Because Betty is not named in James' Bible, she may have a daughter by Nancy HARDWICK, James' second wife, tentatively assigned so as of this date.

(5) James Daniell and Caty Daniell AUSTIN/AUSTON are no longer being assigned as children of Betty AUSTON for three reasons: "James Daniell AUSTIN" was born before James DANIELL wrote his will and was not mentioned as a grandson; the names and birth dates of James and Caty match the names and birth dates of Levi DANIELL's two oldest children, James Levi and Catherine B., highly unlikely; lastly, Jesse is the only child with the AUSTIN surname in one transcript of Levi's Bible. The AUSTIN surname may have been inadvertantly brought down as the surname for Levi DANIELL's children; ergo, there were no children named James Daniell AUSTIN and Caty Daniell AUSTIN and their records have been deleted.

(6) Unknown AUSTON - No evidence proves that Martha married the Unknown AUSTON. He is removed as her spouse and assigned as husband of Betty DANIELL and father of "my grandson Jesse Daniell AUSTON, son of Betty AUSTON" in accordance with James DANIELL's LW&T.


General Notes: Child - Mary DANIELL

Mary "Polly" DANIELL, born 20 February 1765, is a daughter of James O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia. James migrated to South Carolina circa 1754, dropped the O' from his surname, and used DANIELL. Mary is named in James DANIELL's Bible transcription published in the The History of Hancock County, Georgia, referencing an old Bible "which originally belonged to James DANIELL."

Polly DANIEL married Dr. Robert HENDRICK on May 21, 1795, in Columbia, South Carolina. The marriage was published in The SOUTH CAROLINA GAZETTE, Jun 8 , 1795. Mary was 30 years of age at this marriage, which begs the question, was it a second marriage? Mary and Robert had a daughter, Patsy HENDRICK, born between January 1796 and 11 May 1797, determined from nine months after the marriage and the date of Mary's father's Will.

Mary probably died soon after Patsy's birth and before her father's will was written. She was not named in the Will, but both her husband and daughter were. James DANIELL's bequeaths to them read:

"Item. I give and bequeath to my son-in-law Robert HANDRICK [sic] one tract of land on Alligator Creek which land he has my titles for. Also 50 acres of land on the Broad River to him and his heirs forever."
"Item. I give and bequeath to my granddaughter Patsy HANDRICK [sic] three Negroes viz Joe, Rukker, and Fillis. I also give her one half of the Negroes that I have lent to my wife after the death of my wife, to her and her heirs forever."

The bequeaths to Robert HENDRICK were singularly for "him and his heirs" which supports the prior death of Mary.

Before 1803, Robert had remarried to Mary STANLEY, the widow of William HOWELL of Richland County, South Carolina. 3879

General Notes: Husband - James O'DANIEL

James O'DANIEL, born about 1779, was the son of John O'DANIEL (Jr.) and Anne CLARKE of Loudoun County, Virginia. James was first known to this compiler from a bequeath in the 1798 LW&T of his grandfather, John O'Daniel of Fairfax County, Virginia: "I give and bequeath unto my Grand Son James ODaniel son of John ODaniel two hundred Acres of Land lying in the state of Kentucky part of a greater track to him & his heirs forever." James dropped the O' from his surname and is found as James DANIEL in other records.

There are unresolved questions about James.

Our James O'DANIEL??
"DANIEL, James & Rachel CARTER. m. 24 Nov. 1803. Williamson." [Marriages of Loudoun County, Virginia, 1757-1853 By Mary Alice Wertz, p. 35]

SPECULATION: James is known to have been in South Carolina in 1805, resulting in the following possibilities:
When James' father John died is unknown, but certainly before 1798. The question is whether John died about 1780 in the Revolutionary War or whether he removed to Kershaw County, South Carolina about 1770, returned to Virginia about 1779, returned to South Carolina after the Revoluntionary War, and died in Kershaw County in 1796. His return to South Carolina without his wife Ann CLARKE and her remarriage to Absalom WROE before 1784 would mean they had parted ways. John had two uncles and a sister who migrated to South Carolina as early as 1754, speculatively, the reason he may have also migrated there. The 1790 census of Camden District, Fairfield County, South Carolina lists James' granduncle James DANIEL with an unidentified male under 16 in his household. James' granduncle is not known to have had a son born later than 1769. Might the male under 16 then be his grandnephew, James, son of John O'Daniel II of Fairfax? Soon after 1790, James of Fairfield moved his household to his bounty lands in Georgia. Did the male under 16, if James, then return to his mother and Rowe step-family in Fairfax, Virginia?
In another possibility, William DANIEL, son of John O'Daniel I, is also named in the 1790 census of Fairfield County with 3 males 16 & up, 4 males under 16, and 7 females. This enumeration includes one male under 16 and two females more than his known family. William is listed seven names from his uncle James DANIEL. Was Anne' Clarke's son, James, living with his uncle William rather than his granduncle James?
It is interesting to note that John O'DANIEL died before January 1797 in Kershaw. His son James was apprenticed as a carpenter to his brother-in-law in Alexandria, Virginia in March 1796.

Regardless of the above, James' mother had remarried to Absalom WROE before 1784 when James was four or five years old. She and Absalom had four children.

Mary DANIEL, James' older sister, married Abel BLAKENEY of Arlington, Virginia on 17 March 1795. On 26 December 1796 at the age of 16, James was apprenticed to his brother-in-law, Abel, a carpenter. "Daniel, James, 16, to Abel BLAKENEY Arlington Apprentice 1795 HCO: 26 Dec 1795.309" [Alexandria City and Arlington County, Virginia Records Index, Volume 2, Wesley E. Pippenger, p. 76]

James' grandmother was Rosannah CLARKE. He was in South Carolina in 1805 when her estate was settled. At his mother's death, James and his sister Mary BLAKENEY, inherited a slave, Charlotte, from a bequeath by Rosannah CLARKE. This record in Alexandria City & County, VA, Deed Book Extracts, Vol I, 1801-1818, 1989, P. G. Wardell, p. 106, explains the disposition of their shared allocation from Rosannah's estate and establishes James presence in South Carolina:
"1193 IND 12/12/05 bet Abel BLAKENEY & w Mary and Benjamin SHREVE Jr. Rosannah CLARKE before her death owned slaves & devised them to her d Ann WROE & after her death to 6 of the ch/o Ann WROE (including Mary & James DANIEL). Slave Charlotte allocated to Mary & her brother James DANIEL. At time/o allocation, James DANIEL living in SC & there at time of IND. Charlotte claimed by BLAKENEY since James DANIEL WROE failed to return to Alex. BLAKENEY sld Charlotte to SHREVE & tsf ld to SHREVE to protect him from possible claim by WROE. Ld had been orig trf by IND 1805 by James ANDERSON & w Eleanor to BLAKENEY. Wit/James KEITH. Rec 12/13/05 p166"
The above record indicates that James DANIEL may also have been known as James Daniel ROWE. It also presents a question as to why James was in South Carolina. Was it in conjunction with his father having died there? Or simply because other members of his family had migrated there?

James returned to Alexandria, Virginia before March 1810 when he is an administrator for the estate of Rose CLARK, his grandmother.
From the Alexandria Gazette, 20 March 1810:
PUBLIC SALE
On THURSDAY next, the 22nd instant, will be sold, at the court house aquare, One Negro Woman, one do. with two Children -- being part of the estate of Rose Clark, deceased. James Daniel, Adm'r. with the will annexed of Rose Clark. March 16.
Also from the same paper:
3 July 1810:
LIST OF LETTERS
Remaining in the Post Office Alexandria, (D. C.) June 30, 1810.
[listed]
James Daniel.

In 1812, James is mentioned in three records:
"Daniel, James, defendant Arlington Suit 1812 CCM: 28 Jul 1812"
"Daniel, James, defendant Arlington Suit C 1812 CCM: 10 Dec 1812"
"Daniel, James, defendant Arlington Suit D 1813 CCM: 05 May 1813"
[Alexandria City and Arlington County, Virginia Records Index, Volume 2, Wesley E. Pippenger, p. 76]

The record of 1813 is the last known record of James in Arlington. His whereabouts thereafter are not known. His sister Mary BLAKENEY and family moved to Baltimore, Maryland about 1813.

There is also a question of what James may have done with the 200 acres in Fayette County, Kentucky bequeathed to him in 1799 by his grandfather, John O'DANIEL. Did he finally move to Kentucky?

Possible marriage:
If James went to Kentucky, is this marriage record for him?
PARKER, Ophelia to James DANIEL, 3/13/1813, Lewis Co., KY. Consideration: This is the area of KY in which James O'DANIEL was bequeathed 200 acres of land. The 1813 date makes this possibly a second mariage for James, or possibly the marriage of a son of James, perhaps a James DANIEL, Jr. (Date: Sun, 16 Nov 97 11:41:08 -0500 From: midwest, midwest@duo-county.com To: DANIEL-L@rootsweb.com, Message-Id: 199711161641.KAA20930@bnllc2.blue.net Subject: [DANIEL-L] HEINEMANN Book - Misc.

It is at least interesting to note that no postings in Rootsweb family trees or at labs.familysearch.org list a James DANIEL married to an Ophelia PARKER. RLD

General Notes: Husband - TURNER

Who was the TURNER who married Margaret O'Daniel before 1780?


General Notes: Wife - Margaret O'DANIEL

Margaret O'DANIEL was a daughter of John O'DANIEL and Elizabeth MOXLEY of Fairfax County, Virginia. Her family dropped the O', becoming DANIEL during the mid to late 1700s. Her father is often found as John DANIEL in Fairfax County records. Margaret's birth date is thought to be about 1762.

Margaret married _____ TURNER before 1780. They had a son, William. William's father died before 1788 when the widow Margaret Daniel Turner married second James Nelson in Fairfield District, South Carolina, per an 1845 deposition by their son Jesse Nelson to a Fairfield County court. Margaret was James' second wife. He was first married to Margaret Woodward, daughter of Thomas Woodward, The Regulator, and Jemima Collins.

In 1798, Margaret's father wrote his last will & testament using the O'DANIEL surname for himself and his sons. In his will, John wrote, "I give and bequeath to my daughter Margaret NELSON Negro Beck and her increase to her and her Heirs forever." He died in 1799. The estate wasn't settled until 1807, the last known use of our O'Daniel in Virginia.

In the 1800 census of Fairfield District, James Nelson's wife is marked as age 26-45, born between 1756 and 1774. In the 1830 census of Fairfield District, South Carolina, James' wife was marked as a female age 60-70, born between 1760 and 1770.

That Margaret was a daughter of John Daniel of Fairfax County, had first married a Turner, had a son, William Turner, in Fairfax County, and in 1800 was the wife of James Nelson of Fairfield County, South Carolina is proven by this record:
"James and Margaret Nelson of State of South Carolina, District of Fairfield, power of attorney to our dutiful son William Turner of State of Virginia & County of Fairfax, Carpenter, to ask for and demand of John Daniel of the State of Virginia and County of Fairfax the sum of money left by the said John Daniel as a Legacy to the said Margaret Nelson (late Margaret Daniel) or other goods & chattles or ____ to ___ __ ___ to the share of her the said Margaret Nelson of the estate of her father the said John Daniel deceased...3 July 1800.
Jas Nelson (N) (LS), Marg. Nelson (X), Wit: Wm. Robertson, Senior; William Robertson Jur." [Fairfield County Deed Book N, Pages 54-55 (SC Archives Microfilm C301). As shared by JoAnn "Jodi" Cooper Killen]
[NOTE: The Robertson witnessess were also from Fairfax County, Virginia.]

Margaret's son, William Turner, is believed to be the subject of this newspaper advertisement in the Alexandria Times, November 25, 1800:
"Six Pence Reward. RAN away on the 15th inftant, an apprentice lad named WILLIAM TURNER. He is 20 years and 7 months old, is about 5 feet 8 or 9 inches high; had on a light coloured cloth coatee, caffimer waiftcoat and narkeen[?] pantaloons. Whoever delivers the faid apprentice to me, fhall receive the above reward and no charges. Abel Blakeney. Nov. 24."
William ran away about 5 months after the power of attorney to "our dutiful son William Turner", carpenter, by James Nelson and Margaret Daniel Turner Nelson. William Turner, age 20 yrs, 6 mos. was born then about April 1780 and was apprenticed within the extended O'Daniel family. Abel Blakeney's second wife was Mary O'Daniel, niece of Margaret Daniel Nelson, granddaughter of John O'Daniel, Sr, daughter of John O'Daniel, Jr., who died before 1798. Offering only a six pence reward, Abel may not have been concerned about having William returned. Perhaps he knew where William went and was fulfilling his responsibility for William by publishing notice and a reward.

Margaret and James Nelson lived on a plantation on Mill Creek, Fairfield District, South Carolina, about four miles from Winnsborough. He was living there when called into service during the Revolutionary War and was living there in 1832 when he made depostion of his service. James died May 28, 1835.

Margaret had nine children by James Nelson: Jesse, Mary, Catherine, Harriet, Thomas, John, Daniel, and James. She was step-mother of Samuel Nelson, James' son by his first wife, Margaret Woodward.

In James' Will, he devised "to my beloved wife Margaret Nelson the plantation or tract of land on which I reside Supposed to Contain four hundred acres, more or less, exceptiong thereout a Mill Seat and fifteen Acres above the place where he Shall erect the dam to be measured therefrom up the Creek on each side thereof for my son Jesse his heirs and assigns forever- The devise of the Said tract to my said Wife to be for and during the term of her natural life and at her death Idevise the Same Subject to the above exception to my Son Daniel his heirs. and assigns forever. I bequeath to my said Wife for and during the term of her Natural life four feather beds, bedsteads & furniture all my household and kitchen furniture of every kind and description Also all my slaves to wit Abram, Peter, Sarah, Sam, Adam, Jack, Jim, Phoebe and her two female children Serena and Caroline, and five of the best Cows and Calves all the Stock of hogs and sheep, horses & mules, my wagon, cart, gears, and all the plantation tools and implments of husbandry; my Said Wife to have the entire disposal of Crops and the proceeds of Same. I direct however that My Son Jesse shall have the management of the planting interest during her life, and be allowed to retain or receive a liberal compensation for his Services. If a crop Should be Commenced at the time of my decease the Same shall be Considered as included in the above devise of land to my Wife."

On 28 March 1846, in Fairfield District, South Carolina, James and Margaret Nelson's son, Jesse Nelson, age 55, declared in open court deposition that James Nelson married Margaret Turner in 1788 and were husband and wife until James died on 28 May 1835 and that his widow Margaret did not remarry and died 23 or 24 July 1845.


General Notes: Child - William TURNER

William Turner, son of Margaret (O')Daniel Turner Nelson, is known from this South Carolina record:
"James and Margaret Nelson of State of South Carolina, District of Fairfield, power of attorney to our dutiful son William Turner of State of Virginia & County of Fairfax, Carpenter, to ask for and demand of John Daniel of the State of Virginia and County of Fairfax the sum of money left by the said John Daniel as a Legacy to the said Margaret Nelson (late Margaret Daniel) ... 3 July 1800. Jas. Nelson (N) (LS), Marg. Nelson (X), Wit: Wm. Robertson, Senior; William Robertson, Jur." [Fairfield County, South Carolina Deed Book B N., pages 54-55, SC Archives film C301, as cited by Brent Howard Holcomb, Holcomb, Certified Genealogist:, in a report to Mrs. Calhoun J. Killeen of McLean, Virginia, dated September 15, 1992. Copy shared with this compiler.]

William was born about 1780. His mother was Margaret, daughter of John O'Daniel and Mary Moxley of Fairfax County, Virginia. His father has not been proven.

About 1787, apparently widowed, William's mother left Fairfax County, Virginia and went to Fairfield District, South Carolina, joining her brother and sister, William and Frances (May), and her Uncle James Daniel there. Whether Margaret took her son William with her is not known. In 1788, James Nelson married the widow Margaret Daniel Turner in Fairfield District.

Before 1800, Margaret's son was in Fairfax County, Virginia and apprenticed to Abel Blakeney, Carpenter, who had married Margaret Daniel Turner's niece, Mary O'Daniel. William was identified as a carpenter in James and Margaret Daniel Nelson's power of attorney. William ran away about 5 months after he received the power of attorney. He may have returned to South Carolina.

"Six Pence Reward.
RAN away on the 15th inftant, an apprentice lad named WILLIAM TURNER. He is 20 years and 7 months old, is about 5 feet 8 or 9 inches high; had on a light coloured cloth coatee, caffimer waiftcoat and narkeen[?] pantaloons. Whoever delivers the faid apprentice to me, fhall receive the above reward and no charges. Abel Blakeney. Nov. 24." [Alexandria Times, November 25, 1800]
Abel may not have been too concerned since he offered a seemingly puny six pence reward.

William Turner, believed to be Margaret's son, married Charlotte Woodward, daughter of Rev. William Woodward. William and Charlotte named their daughter Margaret Daniel Turner. She was born in 1813 in South Carolina, conceivably named for her grandmother.

In the 1820 census of Fairfield District, is a William Turner, age appropriate for Margaret's son, but also age appropriate to be the son of Alexander Turner, listed beside him. James and Margaret Nelson and three sons are listed in Fairfield District. Two unrelated Nelson families are known to have been in Fairfield and neighboring Richland County.

[NOTE: There is no deed recorded in Fairfield where William Woodard sold to William Turner as specified in this deed. However, there is a deed in Chester Co. which was recorded in August 1816 where William Woodward Sr. land sold to William Turner (Chester Co. Deed Book S, p. 15).]
The next deed following this conveyance of William Turner to William Robinson is a deed involving Samuel Nelson and makes reference to James Nelson selling land he did not have a right to sell. It mentioned lands of Thomas Woodward and Owens.
By a power of attorney dated 3 July 1800, James and Margaret Nelson gave "to trusty and dutiful son William Turner" of Fairfax Co., VA power to receive from her father John Daniel's estate which was witnessed by William Robertson Sr. and Jr. It appears to me that William Turner who was married to Charlotte Woodward was possibly the son of Margaret Daniel Turner and a Mr. Turner. Mr. Turner must have died before 1800 and Margaret Daniel Turner had remarried to James Nelson. Margaret's husband may have been a John Turner.
From the 27 January 1826 issue of the "Cheraw Intelligencer and
Southern Register: "Died at Columbia [SC] on the night of the
6th instant, Mrs. Charlotte Turner, eldest daughter of Rev.
William Woodward, deceased, and wife of Mr. William Turner of
that place." Gail Blancett
[<http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/TURNER/1998-03/0890075649>]
I have done extensive research on the Turner families of Chester and Fairfield Counties, SC, and do not believe this William Turner was part of the noted immigrant family headed by William and Margaret Turner who came to Charleston, SC in late 1767. Their known sons were Alexander, John, and James."

From personal research, this compiler agrees that William Turner, son of Margaret Daniel Turner, was the husband of Charlotte Woodward. Robert Louis Daniell.

Gail Blanchett wrote: "Margaret's husband may have been a John Turner." The 25 July 1807 will of John Turner of Fairfield lists his son as William Alexander Turner and at one point refers to him as Alexander Turner.

General Notes: Husband - Samuel TALBOTT, Jr.

Samuel TALBOTT, Jr., was born on March 17, 1756, in Fairfax County, Virginia. He married Constantine REGAN or REAGAN, daughter of Michael and Rebecca REAGAN in 1775. Constantine died, perhaps a result of childbirth, the next year.

Samuel then married Mary O'DANIEL after 1777. Over the next 22 years, he and Mary had eight children.
They had moved to Kentucky before February 7, 1791, when his mother wrote her will in which she stated that Samuel was no longer in Fairfax County, Virginia. They had settled in that part of Fayette County which would become Clark County in 1792, and named their homestead "Locust Grove".

The Kentucky Gazette, Lexington, June 22, 1793, published: "Samuel TALBERT, Clark County 12 April 1793, living on the Kentucky River between Boon's Creek and Juit's Creek, found a mare."

The Kentucky Gazette, 19 March 1794, "Samuel TALBOT, living in Clark County near mouth of Boone's Creek, found a mare." [This is about 15 miles southeast of Lexingtonon John Filson's 1793 Map of Kentucky, http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~kyfayett/filsons.htm ]

Samuel bought 35 acres in Clark County from Dennis BRADLEY in 1798 (DB 3, p. 180), and another 227 acres from Samuel COMBS in 1817 (DB 13, p. 93).

Among the claims filed in the Public Record Office of London, England, was this item: "Samuel TALBOT, Jr. of Fairfax. Debt with interest due 15 Sept. '98, £3.17.8. Went to Kentucky about ten years ago; had property. Inquire of J. COFFER." (p. 136)

W. H. Perrin's History of Fayette County, Kentucky, includes a biographical sketch of Mrs. Elizabeth FISHER, a descendant of Samuel TALBOTT: "Her maiden name was TALBOTT, and she is a direct descendant of an English Scotch family of the name who came from Virginia to Kentucky at an early day, her great-grandfather, Samuel TALBOTT, settling in Clark County, between the Kentucky River and Boone's Creek. He had one son, Nicholas, whose mother died when he was but a child, and several other children by a second wife." (p. 803) Nicholas was born on November 10, 1776.

Samuel's second wife was Mary O'DANIEL, daughter of John and Elizabeth Moxley O'DANIEL of Fairfax County. When John O'DANIEL died in 1798, his will mentioned his daughter "Mary TALBERT" who was "to have land in Kentucky."

Samuel witnessed the Last Will & Testament of John TILLETT of Bourbon County, Kentucky. In an abstract: Wills: TILLETT, John - Names wife, Jane; sons, James, William, John, Giles; granddaughter, Sarah, daughter of George, deceased; daughters, Nancy COTTEN, Jane REED, Elizabeth BOGGESS, Mary SPENCER, Susanna WARREN. Written 27 Mar 1810. Proved Sep 1812. Witnesses: M. and Samuel TALBOTT, Jas. FORD. (Will Book D, p. 300)

The 1830 Clark County Census, page 89, lists Samuel TALBOTT and family: 1 male and 1 female 70-80 years old, 1 male and 1 female 30-40 years old, 1 female 20-30 years old, 2 males and 1 female 10-15 years old, 1 female 5-10 years old, and 2 females 0-5.

Samuel wrote his will on August 16, 1824, and it was proved on May 27, 1833:
I, Samuel TALBOTT of the County of Clarke and State of Kenty. living in My right Mind and Memory do make My Last Will and Testament in the manner Following

General Notes: Wife - Mary O'DANIEL

Mary O'DANIEL, daughter of John O'DANIEL and Elizabeth MOXLEY. Mary was willed 200 acres of land in Clark County, Kentucky, by her father. "Item. I give and bequeath to Mary TALBERT two Hundred Acres of land part of a Greater Track in the state of Kentucky to her & her Heirs forever." She and Samuel TALBOT moved to Kentucky and established a plantation which they called "Locust Grove." She may have been called "Polly".

Mary's sister Elizabeth, also received 200 acres of land from the same tract in Kentucky. She was named as Elizabeth TALBERT, in her father's will, however, Kentucky land records show her husband as Isaac HALBERT, indicating a clerical error in the recorded will of John O'DANIEL. The U.S. Geological Survey-Charters Quadrangle-Lewis.Corky, Edition of 1950 lists "Elizabeth O'DANIEL, 1761-1847, and her husband, Issac HALBERT, 1750-1825.", buried in Valley Cemetery off Salt Lick Creek, below Redden Branch and above Clary Branch, a little north of a settlement called "Charters".

Samuel TALBERT, Sr. and Mary Magdalene DeMOUVELL were the parents of Samuel TALBOTT, Jr. who married Mary O'DANIEL. Mary Magdalene DeMovell TALBERT'S will, written in 1791, is recorded in Fairfax County, Virginia, where she died. (husband Samuel died in Revolution 1777) She mentions her son Samuel, who is still in Fairfax at the writing, but later removed to Kentucky. It also mentions a son Demovell TALBERT who left Fairfax also removing Kentucky (Bourbon County and Clark County). She mentions another Son Rodham TALBERT - but I have nothing on him at all - wife? etc?. He served in Revolution and died supposedly in Shelby County, Ohio, but wonder if this might not be Shelby County, Kentucky?

Demovell TALBOTT married twice as I found (1) Leanna TALBOTT, his cousin, her mother Leanna MASON, child of French MASON. Leanna TALBOTT may have died in Fairfax before Demovell TALBOTT moved to Kentucky. His second wife was Margaret "Peggy" WILLIAMS, daughter of William. They went to Kentucky after marrying.

General Notes: Child - Daniel TALBOTT

Daniel TALBOTT is named in the 16 August 1824 LW&T of his father, Samuel TALBOTT: "I give unto my son Daniel Talbott $1."

TALBOTT family researchers disagree on which Daniel TALBOTT owned the Red Lion tavern in Millersburg, Kentucky:
1. "Daniel Talbott was born in Spotsylvania County, Virginia on October 25, 1779. This is according to the late Edna Whitley of Paris, Kentucky. Daniel married Elizabeth "Betsey" Paris in Clark County on May 2, 1798. Moses Paris signed the surety bond. She was born on December 16, 1779, and died on April 7, 1825. It has been assumed that this Daniel Talbott moved to Millersburg and ran the Red Lion tavern in Millersburg from 1805 for about 30 years. However, that was another Daniel Talbott, son of Henry Talbott." (http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyclark3/family/fr018-talbott.htm)
2. "Daniel Talbott born in Spottsylvania Co., Va Oct. 25, 1779 was married May 2, 1798 in Clark Co. to Elizabeth Paris, dau. of Moses who owned land in Clark and Madison in 1800. She was born Dec. 16, 1779 and d. Apr. 7, 1825. Daniel ran the Red Lion tavern at Millersburg, Ky from 1805, is it said for 30 yars. In 1817 he referred to changing the name of his stone tavern, doubtless because the ion was a British device in armorial designs. Their children were Polly, James, Ann, Wm., John D., Samuel, Benjamin, Sarah, Maria Louisa, Nancy Dan, Eliza and Juliet...." ((http://www.shawhan.com/bourbonfamilies.html))

I am a descendant of the second wife of Daniel Talbott, Lucy Smith. They married 15 Sep 1825, and had 5 children. (e.g.white@att.net)

General Notes: Husband - Stephen O'DANIEL

Stephen O'DANIEL is a son of John O'DANIEL and Martha MOXLEY. He is named as O'DANIEL in the 1798 will of his father. (Fx. C: 423); however, Stephen had shed his Celtic O'. Most records, including his will, show him as Stephen DANIEL. The 1826 obituary for his wife, Ann W., lists them as DANIELL. The 1840 census enumerates Stephen as 70-80 years old, born between 1760 and 1770. The 1850 census shows his age as 85, born about 1765.

About 1780, Stephen married Ann "Nancy" Wise RATCLIFFE, daughter of Richard RATCLIFFE and Louisiana "Locian" BOWLING.

Virginia Northern Neck Land Grants, Vol. 3, 1775-1800, p. 148 records Stephen obtaining 19 acres, apparently from his father. V-550: T.W. 131: 1 May 1790 Stephen O'DANIEL asne. of John ODANIEL 19 A. (8 Jan 1791) in Fairfax Co. adj. O'DANIEL's Br., William ODANIEL now John ODANIEL, Accotink Run. 15 June 1792."

From John O'DANIEL's Will dated 19 January 1798, " I give and bequeath to my son Stephen ODANIEL Negro James Cris and her two youngest Children to him and his Heirs forever."

Stephen O'DANIEL was listed five times as a buyer at his father's estate sale, three of those times as "Stephen DANIEL."

According to Fairfax Court records, Aug 19, 1799, p. 1628, Stephen DANIEL was to be commissioned a Lieutenant in the Virginia militia.

On 12th of February 1800, Stephen sold his 19 acre tract to Richard RATCLIFFE, his father-in-law, for eighty-five dollars and 50 cents "Current money." Apparently Stephen was allowed to continue living on this land, because in 1854, at the age of 94, "Stephen died at his home, called Airhill, near Centreville, Fairfax County, Virginia"; this being the 19 acre plot Stephen received in 1790 adjoining the land bequeathed to his father's widow, Nancy O'DANIEL.

Extracts from The Daily National Intelligencer, Saturday, November 12, 1825, Number 3997, posted at http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Flats/4759/intelligencer.html contains this entry: "An Excellent Farm for Sale. This farm lies in Fairfax County, consisting of 4 or 500 acres, called Mount Rocky, adjoining the land of Mr. John LLOYD, Mr. Stephen DANIEL, Mr. Charles C. STUART, and others; it is well timbered and watered, of excellent quality, and very healthy, and a very good neighborhood, &c.

notice:
On the 8th instant, at his residence near Centreville, Fairfax County, Va., Stephen Daniel, at an advanced age. [The Alexandria Gazette, Alexandria, Virginia, Saturday, February 18, 1854, Page 2]

Stephen's will is dated March 13, 1849 and was proved March 20, 1854 (Fairfax Liber X, 183). From his will and the detailed land records book, BEGINNING AT A WHITE OAK, by Beth Mitchell, it appears that he had acquired a number of Fairfax plantations aggregating several thousand acres. He names grandchildren Richard Nelson DANIEL, John Hooe DANIEL, and Nancy Wise DANIEL, children of his deceased son Richard John DANIEL; his daughter Jane Pearson ALLISON, and her husband James Gordon ALLISON; grandson Stephen Daniel FOOTE, only surviving child of late daughter Julia Ann JACKSON; grand-daughters Mary Elizabeth, Anne Catherine and Frances Eugenia, children of late son William S. (Steven) DANIEL, and son Robert Ratcliffe DANIEL". Pages 582 - 586, GENEALOGIES OF VIRGINIA FAMILIES, VOL. IV (W -Y and Appendix)

The Last Will and Testament of Stephen DANIEL, below, was transcribed from a photocopy of Fairfax County, Virginia, Will Book X1, page 180. There are no editorial comments within the will. Stephen used parenthetical comments in his will, e.g., ("Called Airhill"). While this example looks odd, it is as written. The transcriber used parentheses containing question marks when words or letters were not distinguishable:
In the Name of God. Amen. I Stephen DANIEL of the County of Fairfax and State of Virginia, being weak in body, but of sound and perfect mind and memory do make and publish this as my last will and testament, in manner and form following, (that is to say) I give and bequeath unto my grand sons Richard NELSON and John Hooe DANIEL and my grand daughter Nancy Wise DANIEL, the children of my son the late Richard J.

SPINDLE and others, and adjoining the lands of Jas. A SPINDLE and others, to them and their heirs forever.
I further give and bequeath to my three said grand daughters, the children of my said son William S. DANIEL, and to their heirs forever, my negro man Celestian(?)

I further give and bequeath unto James Gordon ALLISON, in trust for my said son Robert Ratcliff DANIEL & his heirs forever, my servants woman Jimima and Aymee and Mary Jane the child of Aymee, together with all their future increase.

ALLISON, my three old servants Michael BETTS, Patty HARRIS and Letty COX, and hereby will and direct that they shall be supported out of that portion of my estate, given in this my last will and testament to my said daughter Jane P. ALLISON.
I further will and direct that my Servant man (E.?) HARRIS, shall (on account of his faithful services and good behavior) be free, and that my Executors shall pay to him the sum of one hundred dollars out of my estate not otherwise herein disposed of.
I hereby appoint James Gordon ALLISON and Richard Nelson DANIEL, Executors of this my last will and testament, and hereby revoke all former wills by me made. In witness whereof, I hereunto set my hand and seal this 15th day of March, in the year 1849.

General Notes: Wife - Ann Wise RATCLIFFE

Ann "Nancy" Wise RATCLIFFE was likely named for her mother's sister Ann "Nancy" (BOWLING) WISE. Circa 1798, Ann married Stephen DANIEL, son of John O'DANIEL of Fairfax, Virginia.

In her father's will, dated 29 March 1815, Richard RATCLIFFE bequeathed "...and that after my said wife's death my desire is that all the houses & lotts of mine in providence, may be equally divided among my five daughters Penelope JACKSON, Nancy W. DANIEL, Jane MOSS, Patsey RATCLIFFE, and Locian RATCLIFFE Except the brick store house & lott and Hagues house, & that halfs, his lott, next to Payne Street..."

Died At Air Hill, on Monday, 20th inst. Mrs. Ann W. DANIELL [sic], wife of Stephen Daniell [sic], Esq. of Fairfax County, in the 44th year of her age..." [The Alexandria Gazette, Alexandria, Virginia, Saturday, November 25, 1826, Page 3]

In 1825 when her inheritance was claimed by her husband, Stephen DANIEL. "When our town founder, Richard Ratcliffe, died in 1825 his land was devised to his heirs. The Sisson House stands on a portion of that land which Ratcliffe owned outside of the then town limits. Richard Ratcliffe's Will directed that his land outside of Providence, as Fairfax was then known, be divided among his daughters as they may choose. Stephen Daniel, the husband of Ann W. Daniel, a deceased daughter of Richard Ratcliffe, as her legal heir, chose a ten acre parcel encompassing the site of the present Sisson House. The transfer of this property to Stephen Daniel was halted by a suit brought by Thomas Moss, and others, to settle debts on the estate of Richard Ratcliffe. The result of this suit was the distribution of Ratcliffe's land to special commissioners for benefit of the estate. These commisioners were directed to sell "Lot 4" of the estate of Richard Ratcliffe consisting of ten acres. Daniel McCarty Fitzhugh acquired Lot 4 of Ratcliffe's estate from these commissioners on December 29, 1845." (The Fare Facs Gazette, Vol. 2, Issue 4, Fall 2004, http://www.historicfairfax.org/HFCI24.pdf)

Stephen Daniel's Will of 1849 does not name or mention a wife. Wesley Pippenger in "John Alexander" writes that Julia Ann DANIELS (sic) was the daughter of Stephen and Janet DANIELS (sic). 1915

William S. DANIEL in 1833 signed a petition in Lexington, Fayette County, Ky - however not sure if he is in Fairfax, Va or Fayette, Ky. I have accepted Fayette. William S.

Fanny MASON was the mother of Travis PRITCHARTT and would be the grandmother of the Lewis Born in 1815. The Travis PRITCHARTT line is extinct. My line extends from the only brother to Travis PRITCHARTT named William. The petition was related to slaves belonging to (female) Frances MASON PRITCHARTT decd 1833 and the heirs bringing a lawsuit over. William S. DANIEL received 2/9 of share from slaves of Fanny MASON sold in 1833. Frances MASON PRITCHARTT is my direct ancestor. I am using every name and clue to connect her so someone as I do not know if she is widow MASON, or born as another name. I believe she is connected to French MASON, but no proof. Other recognizable middle name in this line given to children and grandchildren: e.g. Mason, DeMovelle, Jones, Edgar, Lewis, to list a few familiar. (Ann Rupert) The name DeMovelle is associated with Samuel TALBOTT's family, whose son, Samuel, Jr., married Mary O'DANIEL, an Aunt of William S. DANIEL. A man named JONES married Ann O'DANIEL, William S.'s grand aunt. Leanna MASON, daughter of French MASON, married William TALBOTT, brother of Samuel TALBOTT, Sr. The EDGAR and LEWIS names are not familiar here. (Anne Rupert)

General Notes: Husband - William O'DANIEL II

William O'DANIEL was a son of William and Frances O'DANIEL of Stafford County, Virginia. In the 1728? will of his father, it is likely William O'DANIEL received 100 of the 700 acres his father was granted. This assumption is made from known bequeaths of 100 acres to his brothers and sisters. In a 1740 survey of 300 acres for John GLADDING, this land was adjacent to that of William O'DANIEL, and would have madec William's inheritance a part of the 400 acre grant on the south side of Accotink Creek.

The O'DANIEL family lands were within Truro Parish. "Within this territory were the seats of the Fairfaxes, Washingtons, Masons, McCartys, Fitzhughs, Brents, Alexanders, Lewises, Mercers, Daniels, Carters, Dades, Stuarts, Corbins, Tayloes, Steptoes, Newtons, Browns, Lees, Thorntons, Balls, Smiths, and other leading families too many to mention." ("The History of Truro Parish in Virginia" by Rev. Philip Slaughter with Notes and Addenda by Rev. Edward L. Goodwin. 1907.)

It was about 1740 when their O'DANIEL surname began being found as DANIEL in public records. William is found as O'DANIEL in most records in Virginia. He is DANIEL on some records in South Carolina, but he continued to used the O' throughout his lifetime and in his 1795 last will and testament.

In John GLADDIN's will of 1749, William O'DANIEL was named Executor for bequeaths left to John's wife, Frances GLADDIN, William's mother. William and his brother, John O'DANIEL, named as Executor for bequeaths to Ann NELSON and her daughter, Sarah NELSON, presented the GLADDIN's will at a Fairfax County court on 26 December 1749. On the same date, William and Henry GUNNELL signed a Bond of Estate for William's part, as did John O'DANIEL, William Payne, Jr., and Thomas Wren for John's part.

In William's mother's will, dated 7 February 1755, Frances O'Daniel GLADIN bequeathed to William a Negro, Joe. In her will, Frances names her sons as "James DANNELL, William DANNELL, and John O'DANNELL. If there was a riff between brothers which may caused a difference in the surnames they used, as surmised, this naming in the will may be indicative of its having begun before 1755.

The name William O'DANIEL is found in extant records of the Fairfax County courts from 1753 to 1757. In the November 1757 case, William is represented by an attorney, indicating he may not have been in Fairfax at this time. The records show the cases as "William GLADDIN vs William O'DANIEL - in replevin - continued". Fairfax County Court Order/Minute Books record the following:

"William GLADDIN, Plaintiff, against William O'DANIEL, defendant - in Replevin - This day came as well the aforesaid William GLADDIN as the aforesaid William O'DANIEL by their attornies and thereupon all and singular the promisess being seem and by the Court here and fully understood and mature deliberation thereupon had it considered that the said William GLADDIN recover against the said William O'DANIEL the mulatto boy named Anthony AVERY in the declaration mentioned and one shilling damages and also his costs by him in this behalf expended and the said William O'DANIEL in mercy ____ from which judgment the said William O'DANIEL prays an appeal to the most General Court which is granted him and John O'DANIEL and Joseph MOXLEY acknowledge a bond for prosecuting the same with object." This lawsuit started because the mulatto boy, Anthony AVERY, was left to John O'DANIEL in the will of Frances GLADIN; however, Frances' deceased husband, John GLADIN, had bequeathed Anthony AVERY to Sarah NELSON. Sarah NELSON died "as an infant". William GLADDIN, brother of the deceased John GLADIN, acquired ownership of Sarah's bequeaths, apparently including AVERY. Arguably, William demanded that John O'DANIEL return AVERY to him. John protests that he does not have AVERY and that his brother, William, has him. William GLADDIN then sues William O'DANIEL to recover Anthony AVERY or his value. Why and where did William O'DANIEL have him? In a probable scenario, William O'DANIEL goes to SC cir. 1754. Frances GLADIN lets him take Anthony AVERY with him as a servant for his family, but then gave Anthony to John O'DANIEL in her will. Anthony was not hers to give because he was part of John GLADIN's estate bequeathed to Sarah NELSON, his god-daughter. William O'DANIEL may have been in South Carolina and not available to appear in person, thus, represented in the suit by his attorney and leaving his brother, John O'DANIEL and Joseph MOXLEY to protect his interests and post his bond to the court. (William's being in South Carolina during this period is strengthened by this record in Brent H. Holcomb's "Petitions For Land From The South Carolina Council Journals.Vol. 4 - 1754-1756 - Meeting of Tuesday A.M. 5 August, 1755: - The Petition of William O'Daniel humbly setting forth That the Petitioner had four persons in family for whom he never had warrant of survey or grant of land, prayed for two hundred acres of Land between Broad and Saludy Rivers and that the might have a grant for the same. Dated July 4th, 1755. William O'Daniel. The prayer thereof was granted."
SC Archives: Series Number: S213184 Volume: 0006 Page: 00191 Item: 03 Date: 1756/07/06:
"South Carolina. Pursuant to a precept from Wm. DeBrahm Esq. Surveyor General, dated the 5th day of August A.D. 1755, I have measured unto William O'Daniel a tract of two hundred acres of land on Indian Creek, in the fork between Broad and Saludy Rivers: and is bounded on all sides by vacant land: and hath such form as the above plat represents. Certified th. 6th day of July A. D. 1756 by me Joseph CURRY D.S." [Although the plat distinctly reads "William O'DANIEL," it is indexed as "William DANIEL." View plat at http://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/onlinearchives/Thumbnails.aspx?recordId=96626]

William O'DANIEL is listed among the names receiving militia pay disbursements in Henings Statutes At Large - Va. for Fairfax County, September 1758. No dates of service were mentioned in this excerpt. William O'DANIEL is also listed as a sergeant in the book, Virginia Colonial Militia, Fairfax County, September, 1758. This William is likely the son of William and Frances O'DANIEL of Stafford [now Fairfax] County.

The next mention of a William O'DANIEL in Fairfax County, Virginia records is in August 1768. The court ordered John O'DANIEL to pay 550 pounds of tobacco to one William O'DANIEL for having attended 22 days as a witness for John O'DANIEL in a case against John DALTON. (Fairfax County, Virginia, Court Order Book 1768-1770, page 28) The identity of the William O'DANIEL in this case is uncertain; it may be one of two Williams of age at this time, John's brother, returned from South Carolina to testify, or John's son, age 21, who migrated to South Carolina about this time.

Questions: What happened to William O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia? His brother, James O'DANIEL had petitioned South Carolina for a land grant in 1754, before he sold his inherited land in Fairfax in 1757. William's last legal record in Fairfax is also 1757, in which John O'DANIEL posted bond for William. It appears that both William and James severed their final ties to Fairfax, Virginia, in 1757 to live their lives in South Carolina. South Carolina land grants to both William O'DANIEL and James DANIEL were on the Broad River at about the same time, 1754, contributing to the evidence of their connection. William's grant was in what is now Kershaw county, , and James' grant was in now Fairfield county, which counties abut each other. The locations of these O'DANIEL children are close to each other. They likely migrated together. On March 23, 1773, William DANIEL and his nephew, Jesse DANIEL, son of James DANIELL, were witnesses to the lease by Moses KIRKLAND to Arthur SIMPKINS of land located between the Savannah and Saluda Rivers. Another show of kinship? William and James' brother, John O'DANIEL, had a son, William, who migrated to Fairfield County, and then to Edgefield County, South Carolina. He is known to be John's son by his parents indenture of land in Kentucky to him in 1797, recorded in Fairfax County, Virginia. John's daughter, Frances, "followed her uncle to South Carolina and there married a man named MAY." Which uncle was not specified, but had to have been James because William was not named in the article. Two of William of Edgefield's sons were closely associated with Josiah L. DANIEL, son of William O'DANIEL of Kershaw County, South Carolina. Josiah L. DANIEL married his cousin, Mary DANIEL, daughter of William DANIEL of Edgefield. Another link to show close familial ties between William O'DANIEL of Kershaw County and James and John O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia.
Who was the fourth person in William's household in 1755? Anthony AVERY, subject of the lawsuit by William GLADDIN against William O'DANIEL in the Fairfax County, Virginia court in 1757? Or James O'DANIEL who was having problems with his land grant at the time?

William was married before 1755, the year of his first son's birth. His wife's name has not been found, but the given names of some of his sons, Josiah, Sem, and David, are unusual names among O'DANIEL descendants and may help to identify their mother.

William DANIEL is in the Saluda River area of South Carolina by 1755, named in a document with a number of others who petition the Georgia Trustees in Savannah to send troops to protect the settlers. He signs the document as William DANIEL.

In the South Carolina Council Journal, January 6, 1755 to August 18, 1755, page 281, is a record that William O'DANIEL personally petitioned the Grand Council of South Carolina for 200 acres of land. This is about the same time his brother, James O'Daniel/Daniel also petitioned this council for land. At this time South Carolina Royal Grants were given for 50 acres to a head of household and 50 acres for each additional member of the household. This would establish the fact that there were four individuals in William's family, William, his wife, his son, William, and a fourth person, unknown, who may have been a relation, an unidentified child who died young, or Anthony AVERY. "200 acres on Indian Creek in the Fork between Broad and Saluda Rivers, bounded on all sides by vacant land" were granted to him on May 8, 1758. The plat had been certified on July 6, 1756. At the top of the grant, a handwritten note states "4 October 1758 delivered to Joseph CURRY." The grant is listed in South Carolina Royal Grants, Volume 8, page 291, and in 2009 is in Edgefield County roughly 5 miles north of Mount Willing. The required Memorial is not recorded. Land memorials were required of everyone who owned property from about 1730 to 1776. William may have abandoned or sold this land because of the Cherokee Wars which lasted until 1761. That would explain his presence in Fairfax County, Virginia in the late 1750s and his later return to South Carolina and acquiring land in Craven County in 1763.

This acquisition was for 50 acres on Granney's Quarter Creek in Craven County. It was bounded westerly on land surveyed for Henry SUMMERFORD, southerly on said creek, and on other sides vacant land. The plat was certified on April 5, 1763 and the grant made on May 8, 1763. The Memorial for this land was signed as William O'DANIEL on July 13, 1763, as can be found in South Carolina Land Memorials, Volume 6, page 102. William sold this land on November 5, 1789 in a deed to Henry EADY for ten pounds. The land was, by then, in Lancaster County, proved there on July 17, 1790, but not recorded until August 1, 1793 in then Kershaw County in Deed Book B, page 297. Modern maps show Granney's Quarter Creek as the first creek North of the city of Camden in Kershaw County. This area was historically part of Craven County, 1682-1785; Camden Judicial District, Craven County, 1769-1785; Lancaster County, 1785-1791; and Kershaw County, 1791 to present.

Beginning in 1765, William started accumulating land on White Oak Creek, the next creek North of Granney's Quarter Creek on the East side of the Wateree River. At his death, this land was listed as his place of residence. A plat for 100 acres, bounded by vacant land on all sides, was certified on May 10, 1765 and the grant was made on October 31, 1765. William's memorial for this land was dated November 25, 1765, and signed "for the memorialist by John LANDERS". A plat of this land can be viewed at http://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/onlinearchives/Thumbnails.aspx?recordId=99056.

William added an additional 50 acres, bounded to the South by land of William O'DANIEL and on all other sides by vacant land, plated on November 17,1766 and granted on February 17, 1767. William presented his memorial for this land on February 17, 1767. By the end of 1766, William had been granted 400 acres here, apparently headrights for himself, wife and six others. He sold 250 acres of the total, keeping 150 acres of his grants for himself.

William O'DANIEL and John O'DANIEL are listed among the Names of Individuals with Accounts At "Clermont" (Rugeley's Fort) Camden District, SC 1776-1778 (John R. Clarke, 12 May 2004, http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/read/daniel/2004-05/1084409137) Rugeley's Fort was located twelve miles north of Camden on "Clermont", the plantation of Colonel Henry RUGELEY, in the fork of Grannies Quarter and Flat Rock creeks in Kershaw County west of modern state secondary road S-28-58 and north of S-28-40.

On page 13 of "Camden District, S. C. Wills and Administrations, 1781-1787" by Holcomb and Parker, three men, James DANIEL, William DANIEL, and Lewis POPE, are listed as appraisers of the estate of Elizabeth CHAPELL (apt 15, pkg 476). Her will was proved 27 Oct 1782. Purchasers at the sale of property include both William DANIEL and John COOK. This record shows James and William DANIEL together, and is the only document yet found that does. This William DANIEL is either William O'DANIEL/DANIEL (1721?-1796), James' brother, or William, son of John O'DANIEL of Fairfax, Virginia , and nephew of John's brothers, James and William. Both the POPE and COOK families were associated through marriages with James DANIELL's family. William was later of Kershaw County, and James of Fairfield County, South Carolina.

On December 4, 1788, William bought 141 acres from John O'DANIEL for 15 pounds sterling. The land was recorded as on both sides of White Oak Creek, bounded on the North by John GOODWIN, South by land of Michael McELWORTH and the said William O'DANIEL, Southeast by land granted to said William O'DANIEL, South by land granted to Henry DUNGWORTH and all other sides by vacant land, as per two plats of land. The deed was witnessed by David (X) BALLARD, Thomas GARDNER, and David DANIEL,William's son, and recorded December 12, 1788 in Lancaster County. This purchase completed William's estate of 291 acres as given in his will.

The 1790 census for South Carolina, Camden District, Lancaster County, Printed Edition, page 26 shows "William DANIL" with 1 male age 16 & upwards, 1 male under 16, 2 females, and 3 slaves.

William's will, dated 4 November 1795, probated 8 November, 1796, and recorded in Kershaw County Will Book C, page 260, was transcribed as follows:
"South Carolina Kershaw County White Oak Creek - - -

A flourish of his pen may have looked like an added "s". William did not mention a wife, and left all of his 291 acres to his son, William, who presented the will for probate on 8 November 1796.

General Notes: Child - William DANIEL III

William O'DANIEL, later DANIEL, was born 19 February 1755, probably Camden District, SC or Fairfax County, Va. His father, William O'DANIEL, born about 1720 in Stafford County, Virginia, is believed to be a son of William and Frances O'DANIEL of Stafford County, Virginia.

1790 U.S. Census, South Carolina, Lancaster County, No Twp; Series: M637 Roll: 11 Page: 243: Wm. DANIEL 1 1 2 . 3

William's birth occurred during a transition period between 1753 and 1757 when William and James O'DANIEL, two sons of William O'DANIEL of Stafford County, Virginia, were migrating from Fairfax County, Virginia to the area of what is now Kershaw and Fairfield counties in South Carolina. It was also during the period 1750 to 1800 that the O'DANIEL surname in this family from Fairfax was changing into DANIEL and DANIELL. During the next half century, William can be found in the records with his name spelled in all three versions. In one census, even DANIELS shows up. The transition was completed in his children who were all named as DANIEL in his will, although his son William continued to use O'DANIEL on some legal documents pertaining to wills as late as 1807.

Records from Kershaw County, South Carolina Minutes of the County Court 1791-1799 by Brent Howard Holcomb that would apply to this family:

p. 141 - 1799 Aug 9; William Daniel petit juror no. 18

His father bequeathed to William all of his 291 acres of land, and named him executor of his will. William married Eleanor, called "Ellen". Her maiden name may have been MARLOR.

November 8, 1796, William O'DANIEL received letters Testamentary on the Last Will and Testament of his father, William O'DANIEL deceased. (Kershaw County Court Minutes)

Jurors named for Kershaw County in Nov. 1797 were : John MCDONALD, Patrick BROWN, William DANIEL, Daniel FAUST, and Peter CRIM.

On January 7, 1797, William O'Daniel applied "for letters of administration on the Estate of John O'DANIEL Deceased late of the County." February 7, 1797, William received the letters of administration. The Securities were Robert DUNLAP and William DUNLAP.

In the Kershaw County Court Minutes for 9 May 1797, William O'DANIEL was on the list of Persons appointed overseers of the Several Districts of Roads Within this County for the ensuing year.

In another document on February 26, 1802, "William DANIELL (sic) accoumpt (sic) against the Estate of John DANIELL (sic) Deceasd" to the maintainance of one child 34-10-8, to schooling paid John ADDEMS 0-18-8, to rasing three colts 20-11-4, the amount 56-0-8." What is significant here is that when writing this accounting, William dropped his O' and spelled his name and John's name as "DANIELL", possibly linking himself and John O'DANIEL with the family of James DANIELL of Fairfield County, South Carolina and Hancock County, Georgia, believed to be their uncle. In concluding the administration of John O'DANIEL's estate on March 1, 1802, "William O'DANIEL came and made oath that the above Amount is just and true. (signed) William DANIEL Administ. Sworn before me J. ALEXANDER J. P." This record shows William as O'DANIEL and DANIEL in the same document.

Samuel GOODWIN, on August 31, 1807, sold 130 acres on White Oak Creek to William O'DANIEL for $600. This tract of land was bordered by land of William O'DANIEL, Elizabeth STROBRIDGES, Moses REEVES, and George GEYDEN. Witnesses were Richard SCOTT and Daniel GARDNER.

In the 1810 U. S. Census for Kershaw County, two William DANIELS are listed. One as William DANIELS age 45 and up; a male age 0-10; two females age 0-10; one female age 10-16; and one female age 45 and up. The other as William DANIELS age 45 and up; two males 0-10; two females age 0-10; and one female age 45 and up. The first record may be our William. The three girls and a boy closely match their known family, but considering that there were children born to William and Eleanor up until 1816, her being marked as 45 and up in 1810 is questionable. She died in 1842, Lowndes County, Alabama at age 69, "in her 70th year." which indicates her age in 1810 as about 38.

On November 7, 1810, Mary WOOD, William's sister, sold to William a negro woman for $200. The sale was signed, sealed, and delivered in the presence of Jesse MARLER, Jane D. DANIEL and Thomas ARCHER. Jane D. DANIEL was William's daughter.

Christopher MATHESON presented the will of William DANIEL in court on January 22, 1829. The inventory and appraisement of his Goods and Chattels was done on 4 Feb and 1 March 1829. The estate value was $17,410.42. There were 40 Negroes valued at $13,425.

William DANIEL, III, died October 1, 1828, and is buried on the old estate in the woods above White Oak Creek. His tomb, a brick sarcophagus, has a marble stone cover, inscribed:
"This Stone Covers the Remains Of a Sincere and upright Christian A kind and affectionate Husband A tender and Indulgent Father And as a Citizen, Few men excelled in honesty and Integrity. WILLIAM DANIEL Was born the 10th Feb.y 1755. And died the 1st of Oct.r 1828. Aged 71 years 7 months and 20 days."
as read from a picture of the marble stone.

In an e-mail on 11/25/2002, William O'DANIEL of Littleton, Colorado, who visited the gravesite and provided pictures of it, commented: "It was a super find in the woods! I'll never forget how excited we were when we discovered it. As you can tell from the photo, the tomb had been broken into, but I don't recall us looking inside." The math on William's life span according to the stone is worth commenting on as well. "71 years 7 months and 20 days" added to "10th Feb.r 1755" equals 1826 Sept 30. Because William DANIEL wrote his will on August 25, 1828, the year 1826 can't be the answer. His age at death using the 1755 birth date would have been 73 years, 7 months, and 20 days. The Kershaw County, South Carolina Cemetery Survey, Volume One, 1991 states that William is buried off Kirkland Cemetery Road in Flint Hill area off Road 696, Kershaw Co., SC.

General Notes: Child - James DANIEL

James DANIEL was a son of William O'DANIEL of Kershaw County, South Carolina. James' mother's name is not known. James' father, in his 1795 LW&T, left him one feather bed.

James DANIEL first married Elizabeth ERWIN, parents unknown. James and Elizabeth had a son, Nathaniel DANIEL, born Abt 1785. In James' Last Will and Testament, he names no children and leaves all he has to his second wife, Ann SALLEY, the widow of Joseph PENDARVIS. Nathaniel is presumed to have died before the date of the Will, 11 September 1804.

Page 188, 27 July 1792 - James HARDAGE of Fairfield Co., deed of gift (at his death) of a negro boy named Elish and a parcel of land on Dutchmans Creek joining POWER's (?) land and the fork of said creek, mentions the original plat. Wit: James DANIEL. 31 May 1793 James DANIEL proved the deed of gift from James HARDAGE to William HARDAGE before S. W. YONGUE, J.P. "Memorialized 1st June 1793." (SCMAR, Vol. XVI, Summer 1988, No. 3, p. 170, from John R. Clarke.) Is this, James DANIELL/O'DANIEL of Fairfield, SC and Hancock County, GA, or James DANIEL, son of William DANIEL/O'DANIEL of Kershaw and nephew of James of Fairfield? HARDAGE is a variant of HARDWICK, the maiden name of Nancy, the second wife of James DANIELL of Fairfield.

General Notes: Child - Sarah DANIEL

Sarah DANIEL, born 11 June 1762, is the daughter of William O'DANIEL of White Oak Creek, Camden County, later Kershaw District, South Carolina. Her mother's name is not known. As did all of William's children, Sarah dropped the O' from her surname. She married James ERWIN in 1777 in Camden District, South Carolina. They had twelve children.

Sarah's father, in his Will dated 4 November 1795, wrote "First I Give and bequeath to my Daughter Sarah IRWIN one Shilling Sterling."

NOTE: Sarah DANIEL is wrongly assigned by some as the daughter of William DANIELL of Clarke County, Georgia, born 1743, a descendant of Robert Daniell (d. 1718 South Carolina). The error is found in various locations, including the records of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Annie Elizabeth Miller's book, Our Family Circle, published in 1931, may have been used as a source for the mistake or contributed to it. In reference to the two possible fathers of Sarah DANIEL that the book presents, it is important to note that she states "no proof has been submitted as to the truth of either claim." On page 486, in the chapter "House of Daniel", is this comment:
"Note--Two claims regarding Daniel ancestors are given below, although no proof has been submitted as to the truth of either claim.
First claim. Robert Daniel came from England to Barbados Island in 1697, then came to South Carolina, and in 1698 was made Landgrave. After becoming Governor of South Carolina, he was sent to North Carolina to straighten out affairs in that province. His son, Robert Daniel, Jr., lived in Camden District, S. C., near St. Stephen, and it is claimed that this Robert, Jr., was the father of William Daniel who married and had fourteen children, among them, Sarah, wife of James Erwin. (Note--No proof has been submitted so far that Sarah Daniel was a descendant of Governor Robert Daniel, although an Erwin descendant in Columbia, S. C., states she has seen the proof of this claim)
Among family data gathered by Robert Munro Erwin is a copy of a letter written June 5, 1907, by Mrs. A. E. Thompson of Blacksville, S. C., to Mrs. T. Grange Simons, of Charleston, S. C. In this letter Mrs. Thompson calls herself the granddaughter of Sem Daniel, and Mrs. Simons (Serena Aiken), a granddaughter of William Jr., Sem's brother. She states that William, Sr., had fourteen children, among them, William, Jr., Sem, Mary (Aunt Polly), Sarah, and Joseph."
Comments in parentheses in the quotes above are part of the author's text. The second paragraph is not specified as "second claim", but presents the alternative to the "Robert Daniel" claim and points directly to William O'DANIEL as Sarah's father. (See N.B. below on Robert Daniel.)
Annie Elizabeth Miller also included this comment on page 430 in her chapter on "House of Erwin":
"Sarah Daniel's name is spelled in the old Erwin Bible, Danielle, and history shows that the name of Gov. Daniel was written Daniel, Daniell, and Danielle." Its placement subtlely suggests that James ERWIN's wife was a descendant of Gov. Robert DANIELL of the Carolinas, but she is not.

Three records combine to prove William O'DANIEL is Sarah's father:
1. The Last Will & Testament of William O'DANIEL of White Oak Creek, Kershaw County, South Carolina, which names "Sarah IRWIN" and her O'DANIEL siblings, William, David, Josiah, Sem, James, and Mary (called Polly).
2. The 1850 census of Barnwell County, South Carolina (Series: M432 Roll: 849 Page 441) in which Mary WOOD (Aunt Polly), 75, resides in the household of her nephew, James Daniel ERWIN, son of James and Sarah Daniel ERWIN.
3. The 1860 census of Barnwell County (Series: M653 Roll: 1213 Page: 383) in which Mary WOOD (Aunt Polly), 85, resides in the household of her niece, Rebecca AYER, daughter of James ERWIN and Sarah DANIEL and wife of Lewis Malone AYER.
The two censuses support these comments in Our Family Circle that Mary, known as "Aunt Polly," is said to have had two children, presumably by Mr. WOOD. They are thought to have died young. Mr. WOOD is said to have become a drunkard who deserted Mary, after which, she lived with various members of her family.

Sarah Daniel ERWIN is buried beside her husband in Antioch Cemetery, in present day Allendale County, South Carolina, previously part of Barnwell County. Her memorial plaque reads:

SARAH DANIEL
WIFE OF
MAJOR JAMES ERWIN
BORN 1762
IN CAMDEN DISTRICT
DIED 1815

==============================

N.B.: Kenneth Daniell of Mableton, Georgia, descendant of Robert Daniell (d. 1718 South Carolina), provided this correction to the information:
- Robert Daniell, Sr. (d. 1718 South Carolina) did not travel from England to Barbados Island in 1697. He was already resident in South Carolina in 1677, possibly earlier.
- He became acting governor of North Carolina several years prior to being acting governor of South Carolina, not vice versa.
- Robert Daniell, Jr., did not live in Camden District, S. C. He lived near his father on Daniell Island, Berkeley County, near Charleston.
- Robert, Jr. had only two sons, Robert and Marmaduke. He could not possibly be the father of Robert, Sr.'s grandson William since Robert, Jr. died in 1709 or 1710, 33 years before the grandson William was born.
- William Daniell (b. 1743) was the son of John Daniell (b. 1707), who was the son of Robert, Sr. by his second wife. William Daniell was married twice and had a total of twenty children, not fourteen. He was not the father of Sarah Daniel, wife of James Erwin.


General Notes: Child - Sem DANIEL

Sem O'DANIEL was born 30 Mar 1766, a son of William O'DANIEL. Sem later dropped the O' from his name, as did all of William's sons, but William, in his will, named his "sun" as Sem O'DANIEL and gave him one feather bed and furniture.

Sem DANIEL first married Ann ALLEN and second, Mary Agnes Elizabeth RICE, who became his widow.

"Sem & Mary Agnes Elizabeth Rice Daniels are my 4 great-grandparents." (Sybile Pierce, http://www.oldplaces.org/bamberg/vitals/sybile3.html)

"Sem DANIEL"?? Provided this is Sem, the enumeration fits his known family: Sem, about 24, wife Ann ALLEN, and a son born about 1789.

Some say that Sem married three times. That is understandable based on records which name his second wife as Elizabeth and his widow as Mary Agness; however, the research of Sybile McMillan Pierce states that Mary Agness and Elizabeth RICE were the same person.
"Sem DANIEL, 2nd ch. of William DANIEL, Sr., was b. 1758(?); received such education as he could get at that time in the country schools. He became a magistrate of that section of the country, and had ambition enough to give his children better advantages than he had had. Sem DANIEL mar. 3 times; lost the only ch. by the first marriage, and lost a son by the second. His third wife was the mother of 2 girls, one of whom became the mother of Mrs. A. E. THOMPSON [William Holman THOMSON], of Blacksville, S.C." ("Our family circle", p. 488)

Sem's two daughters were Mary R. DANIEL, born 1807, who married Charles W. RICE, and Elizabeth Jane DANIEL, born 1809, who married John William RUSH. The dates of Sem's marriages are undiscovered at this time.

Sem died in Barnwell County, South Carolina, leaving a will dated 1833 and recorded in 1837.

General Notes: Child - David DANIEL

David DANIEL, born 1769, son of William O'DANIEL, mother not discovered, is named as David O'Daniel named in his father's Will. He was bequeathed 1 shilling.

According to the Joseph Hart Family Papers, David DANIEL married Mary MULDOON who died before 1819. David and Mary had only daughters: Dorcus Rebecca DANIEL (died after 1821), Sarah Jane, Harriet Eleanor, Cynthia, Mary, and Artemisia.

In 1788 David witnessed a deed of a John O'DANIEL to William O'DANIEL in Lancaster County, later Kershaw County, South Carolina. John is believed to be William's youngest brother.

Records from Kershaw County, South Carolina Minutes of the County Court 1791-1799 by Brent Howard Holcomb show on p. 20 - 1792 July 31; David DANIEL vs John TRANTHAM & Rachel TRANTHAM, Judgement by default with costs.
In a letter from David to his brother, Josiah, in 1809, David said his wife (Mary MULDOON) was a sister of John MULDOON, apparently they had been married since 1802. David requested an answer to his letter be addressed to the Chester County Court House.

The relationship, if any, between this Sarah and the the family of David Daniel has not been discovered. An identical entry for a Sarah DANIEL in neighboring Chester County was lined out. Perhaps she resided on the boundary line between the counties. A Jesse[?] EDWARDS entry next to Sarah was also lined out.

David DANIEL was sued in 1816 in the York District Court of Common Pleas by Philip RAIFORD and Jesse DANIEL, executors of the Last Will and Testament of Josiah L. DANIEL. On Feb. 13, 1810, David DANIEL had borrowed $80.00 from Josiah L. DANIEL which he had neglected to repay. The suit is recorded in the York County, S. C., Court of Common Pleas Judgment Rolls, 1800-1839, No. 697. A letter was presented as evidence by the plaintiffs. The letter mentioned, above, starts off "Brother Josiah." Granted, this salutation could mean a lot of things but if you read his letter to Josiah then you come away with the general assessment they are brothers, as well as the fact that David does not give express concern for Lucretia's kids. There is no evidence to the contrary. (SCMAR, Vol. II, Fall 1974, No. 4, p.217, David Daniel and His Family Troubles)

CLINE as Admr. of Mary POLK.


General Notes: Child - Mary DANIEL

Mary DANIEL, born about 1774, was a daughter of William O'DANIEL of White Oak Creek, Kershaw County, South Carolina. His LW&T provides "I Give and bequeath to my Daughter Mary ODANIEL forty weight of new feathers one Grey Philley two years old last Spring a fold of A grey Mare Cauled tib - two Cows two breading sows one Flax Wheal one pot and frying pan one Dish one bason and four plates - No more." She was unmarried at the time of her father's death in 1796. As did all William's children, she used the surname DANIEL.

Mary DANIEL married a Mr. WOOD before 1810 when she executed a deed for a Negro woman named Amy to her brother, William DANIEL, in Kershaw County, South Carolina. The deed was signed Mary (X) Wood.

In Our Family Circle by Annie Elizabeth Miller, Mary, known as "Aunt Polly", is said to have had two children, presumably by Mr. WOOD. They are thought to have died young. Mr. WOOD is said to have become a drunkard who deserted Mary, after which, she lived with various members of her family.

The 1790 census of Lancaster County, lists a "Wm Wood 2 1 1 . 2" which describes a family as portrayed above. It is not known if this is Mary DANIEL and her WOOD family.
[http://www.usgwarchives.org/sc/census/1790/028-029.gif]

Mary's sister, Sarah, married Major James ERWIN in 1777. James and Sarah lived in Barnwell County, South Carolina. Some time before 1820, Mary had also moved to Barnwell County. There are several census records which may enumerate her. In one, a Mary WOOD is a head of household, in another, Mary may be the unknown female 26-45 in her brother Sem's household.
1820 U.S. Census, Barnwell County, No Twp; Series: M33 Roll: 119 Page: 19:

1820 U.S. Census, South Carolina, Barnwell County; Series: M33 Roll: 119 Page: 14:
"Mary Wood 1-0-0-1-0-0-1-1-0-1-0-0-1-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0". Reads: 1M under 10, 1M 16-26, 1F under 10, 1F 10-16, 1F 26-45 (Mary, born about 1774). The male under 10 and the female 10-16 may be her children who are thought to have died young. Others in the household are not known.
Some WOOD researchers offer that a William WOOD may have been Mary's husband. There is a William WOOD, three homes away, on the same page:
"William Wood 1-1-1-0-0-1-2-1-2-1-0-0-2-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0". (1M over 45 and 1F 26-45 and 8 possible children). Considering the DANIEL and ERWIN family recollections of Mary's husband and the word drunkard, this would not seem to be her husband. William's family looks very stable.
George WOOD is Mary's next door neighbor:
"George Wood 0-0-0-2-0-1-0-0-0-1-0-0-2-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0", he is over age 45, with two males 16-26, and one female 26-45 in his household.

General Notes: Child - Josiah L. DANIEL

Josiah L. DANIEL, born 22 May 1776, was a son of William O'DANIEL. His mother's name has not been found. William bequeathed 1 shilling to Josiah in his will of 1796. Josiah and his siblings dropped the O' from their surname.

In 1800, Josiah L. DANIEL was 24 years old. John R. Clarke provides that a "Josiah DANIE?? - 11010-30010 - 0, 32 and it could be DANIEL" is listed on the 1800 Census of Chester County, South Carolina, Series: M32 Roll: 47 Page: 90. There are only 5 letters in the surnmane and the head of household is age 26-45. This compiler reads the entry as Joseph DAVIE or DAVIS. A "Felia DAVIS" is listed 14 names below "Joseph."

In 1808, at age 32, Josiah married Mary DANIEL, his first cousin, once removed. She was a daughter of William DANIEL and Lucretia BELL of Edgefield District.

1810 U.S. Census, South Carolina, Edgefield County, No Twp; Series: M252 Roll: 62 Page: 75:
"Josiah DANIEL 0 0 0 1 (Josiah, age 26-45) 0 || 0 0 1(Mary, age 16-26) 0 0 0."

Josiah and Mary's son William Francis DANIEL was born in 1811. Three years later, Josiah died.

Allen ROBERSON (ROBISON) was the husband of Sarah Grigsby HILL, sister of Mary HILL who married James DANIEL, brother of Jesse and Mary.
The surname spelled as DANIELL is unusual in Josiah L.'s family line, but it does reflect the surname as used by his uncle James DANIELL of Fairfield, South Carolina. In contrast, the surname of Mary's brothers, Jesse and William is DANIEL, as used by her family line.

Josiah was listed as Josiah L. DANIEL in an 1816 civil suit made by his executors, Phillip RAIFORD and Jesse DANIEL against his brother, David O'DANIEL/DANIEL. Phillip RAIFORD and Jesse DANIEL were a son-in-law and son, respectively, of William DANIEL of Edgefield, SC, who was a grandson of William O'DANIEL of Stafford County, VA. This information is from the South Carolina Magazine of Ancestral Research, Vol. 7, #4, 1974, pages 217 - 219. York District, S.C. Court of common Pleas, 12 October 1809. Re; David and Josiah L. DANIEL. Child of Josiah O'DANIEL and MARY is: i. William Francis DANIEL.

General Notes: Husband - Neale O'DANNELL

Neale O'DANNELL is of interest as a possible father or family relation to William O'DANIEL of Stafford County, Virginia.

Neale O Dannell listed in "Cavaliers and Pioneers Volume I, Nugent ": 1666 Neale O Dannell headright for Henry Mees, Potomac Creek, Stafford. Nugent:Vol I p. 55-56. Col. Henry Meese (wife Anne) lived on Potomac Creek in Stafford. Henry Meese of London, in Maryland in 1658, was partner with Nathanial Utie (Maryland Archives). Nathaniel Utie was the Quaker who, I believe, led the persecuted Virginians from the south side of the James River to his Spesutie Island at the mouth of the Susquehanna, where the O'Daniels, and the brothers George and Edward Gunnell, were near neighbors.

From Neale's arrival in the colony in 1665, he was probably born circa 1640. William is thought to have been born about 1691, and received land grants in Stafford County in 1717 and 1724.

Passenger and Immigration Lists Index, 1500s-1900s
Name Year Place of Arrival
Neale O'Dannell 1665 Virginia
In addition, two men named Thomas O'DANIEL(L)* arrived in Maryland two years earlier:
Name Year Place of Arrival
Mrs. ??? O'Daniell 1663 Maryland [possible wife of Thomas arrived 1663]
Thomas O'Daniel 1663 Maryland
Thomas O'Daniel 1664 Maryland
Age and Estimated Birth Year columns were blank.
*DNA results from the line of a Thomas O'DANIEL from Maryland through a son Joseph whose family migrated to Kentucky show no relationship to the DNA result from this compiler, a descendant of William O'DANIEL of Stafford County, Virginia.

In Abstracts of Virginia's Northern Neck Warrants & Surveys, 1697-1784, Vol. IV by Peggy Shomo Joyner, 1987, p. 156, is a very informative abstract of the 23 Aug 1687 Will of Thomas O'Donell of Stafford County. It mentions "my wife" (not named), and names no children. He parcels things out to a number of men, perhaps married to daughters, business parteners, or friends. His not naming a son probably eliminates his being directly related to William O'Daniel, 1691?-1728, of Stafford County, Virginia. One less consideration to research then?

Considering the above, these two references may be of interest:
"On July 25, 1680 a jury met at the house of "Mr. John ASTON." It was composed of the following: Joseph HAYWARD, Thomas ODONELL, Burr HARRISON, Robert RICHARDS. Robert ALEXANDER, William KEY, Edward HUMSTON, Jonah RANDALL, Anthony BUCKNER, William BANKS, Samuel HAYWARD, and Robert HEWITT." (St. Paul's Parish Register: Stafford -King George Counties, Virginia, 1715-1798, p. 1, Compiled by John Bailey Calvert Nicklin, 1962, Genealogical Publishing Co., Baltimore Maryland, ISBN-10: 0-8063-4591-8)
"In Aug. 1688, John WITHERS executed a bond in which he mentioned the dower rights that might arise "either by my Mother now wife of Thomas O'DONNELL or my wife now living." Obviously, this woman did not die in 1661. A further complication is that I see references to Thomas O'DONNELL's will, written 28 Aug. 1687 (though I don't know when he died, or when the will was presented to court)." includes the parenthetical, at http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/read/VASTAFFO/2000-01/0949119822, posted by "Thena Jones" (email address invalid) Subject: RE: [VASTAFFO-L] Stafford Co. Deed and Will Abstracts, 28 Jan 2000.
Historically, Stafford County, Virginia was established in 1664 from Westmoreland County which was created in July 1653 out of the western part of the original Northumberland County founded in 1648. William's land grants were that part of Stafford County, Virginia, which became Prince William in 1732, then that part of Prince William which became Fairfax in 1742. William's land was originally in St. Paul's Parish, later being in Overwharton and then Truro Parish.
It is particularly interesting to note the GUNNELL connection. William's daughter Catherine O'DANIEL m. Henry GUNNELL, b. 1710. Henry's father was William GUNNELL, probably born abt 1675-80 since his first child was born about 1701. There is a history of the two families after that intermixed with HURST.
Another family line, NEALE, was also associated with the family of William O'DANIEL through marriages in the 1700s and a Daniel NEALE had land in Stafford, later Fairfax, as well.
This looks as if it ought to come together...somehow.
