General Notes: Husband - Dallas Polk GUNNELL

"Dallas Polk Gunnell married Ida Blanche Gibson whose parents owned the triangular tract on Lewinsville Road. That tract became part of Woodside when Ida's parents died. Dallas and Ida Gunnell lived in the house that Dallas' father, Col. Gunnell, built. They had two daughters who died very young on the same night. There was suspicion that the hired girl poisoned them but it was never proved.
Mary and Dallas inherited Woodside from their father when he died in 1878.
Mary Berry and Dallas Gunnell both died about 1915. About the time Dallas died, his house burned to the ground. He, his wife, and two infant daughters are buried at Andrew Chapel."

General Notes: Husband - Augustus Poole BELL

Augustus Poole BELL was born in Alabama. He migrated to Texas, later going to San Francisco, California.
A letter received by Arthur W. Bell, Sr. from his father Augustus Poole Bell in March 1929. (Transcribed September 6, 2002 by Daniel Mahar, received from Carolyn Golowka):
"I received your letter in due time. No doubt you would enjoy a trip in the South not only to see the home of your father and uncles when they were children and where we played there as little boys do today and see the large plantations of the South as they were years ago, and that of your grandfatheršs, which was about two mile through it one way and about 1 3/4 the other. But you need a guide to tell you how they lay 60 years ago. The ground I nearly as it was then but the lines and appearances have been changed some by man and time. I would like to have made a visit to the land of my childhood, and retravel the roads that I traveled on so much on horseback when I was a happy boy. Where I lived when I was a child, and where I lived when my children were children is dearer to me than any other place on earth. Although to see those spots would cause me to weep like a little child for a lost toy, still it would be a pleasure to see them. We wish to see what is a pleasure to us, and we wish to see what is sadness to us.
My cousin Annie Bell told me of Joešs visit last Spring. It was my fatheršs tomb that Joe visited. My fatheršs father lived and died in South Carolina. I donšt know any farther back than my grandfather Bellšs own family. I know nothing of his ancestors. My father, five brothers and two sisters were born and raised in South Carolina on a farm, where they stayed and worked on the farm until they were 21. William Bell moved to Georgia, died there, leaving a widow, son, daughter and a little grandson. He was poor. Jim Bell moved to Mississippi. I donšt know his circumstances. Only that he had little or no wealth. Annanias, Osborne, and LeRoy moved to Alabama. Uncle Lee had nothing, he was overseer for my father 1 year. I was 5 or 6 then. Uncle Ananias was younger than my father, but married first, his first child being 7 or 8 years older than I was. He lived 3 miles from us, on the road from Hayneville to Leotahatche and 1 mile from Hayneville, the county seat.
I was well acquainted with his family. My uncle Annanias had only 2 or 3 negroes. Uncle Osborne was still younger, but his oldest child, a boy, was 2 years older than I, destine to be a millionaire. Uncle Osborne lived in Montgomery County 18 miles from us. He was in good circumstances, owned 2 small plantations and some 12 or 15 negroes. My brother Joe and I boarded in his family when going to our first school. I was 10, Joe 8. Uncle Osbornešs oldest child, N. J. Bell, was in the banking business when he died, worth about $1,000,000. Only a boy of common sense, but turned his whole heart to making money. My father, Joseph Bell, moved to Alabama soon after it was admitted into the Union in 1819. I became acquainted with an old man in 1865 that knew my father when he owned only a horse, a bridle, and saddle and was teaching school. He died in July 1861 at the age of only 52. He left 2 plantations well stocked, the home place something more than 1400 acres, the other plantation in an adjoining county, 1240 acres, and 92 negroes. He was about 40 when he married, owning a small plantation and somewhere about 20 or 30 negroes, about half of them boys and girls; he was preparing for the future. Little did he think that those little boys and girls when in the prime of life would be taken from his children without remuneration, when at the time he bought them the U.S. Government recognized them as property. The home place - the plantation on which we lived - was between Hayneville and Leotahatchee. We lived about 4 miles from Hayneville and about 3 1/3 miles from Letohatchee, which are about 7 miles apart. We lived about 1/2 mile off the public road, the road running through the plantation, cutting off 400 or 500 acres on one side, from the settlements. My fatheršs tomb stands on a little hill sloping on all sides alike, about 200 years from the public road on the side toward the settlements. He selected the spot years before he died. My brother Willie, my third brother, has been buried there also. My father was strictly honest, he had a profound contempt for a liar or otherwise dishonest person, and my mother was the same.
I was born in October 1849 in a double log house. My father hadnšt bought the 1400 acre plantation then. He bought it about 3 years after. He sold the plantation on which I was born to Uncle Annanias Bell.
My fatheršs brothers that I knew, were blue eyed, dark hair about like mine was when young, and a real white complexion. I have looked in an encyclopedia for an origin for the Bells, and from what I can find, the name Bell had its beginning in Scotland or Ireland. The complexion of my father and brothers point to Scotland as the first home of the Bells. My father used the word 'fetch' for bring. King James 1st of England used the word 'fetch' he was born and raised in Scotland, and was first. James the sixth of Scotland at Queen Elizabethšs death, became James the first of England. So I think the Bell of our family came first from Scotland.
I will tell you what I know of my motheršs family. My motheršs mother was a Daniel, she had one brother, but no sister to my knowledge. Her brother, Uncle John Daniel, lived 11 miles from Hayneville, the county seat of Lowndes County. My grandma lived on mile from the village, we lived 4. Uncle John Daniel was not wealthy but was well to do, owning a small plantation and 12 or 15 negroes and sufficient livestock as horses, mules, cows, sheep and hogs. He never tried to make money; he was satisfied with having a plenty to live on and live will, pride cost him nothing. He lived in a log house of 4 rooms. He was a sociable and fond of company. My grandma first married first Augustus Poole from New York State. My mother was the first child, and the second a boy, William. Their father died while they were children. My mother married at the age of 16; she was born in October. I was born in October, my brother Joe was born in October two years later. Mother died in the Fall of 1864. We were then living in Butler County, Adjoining Lowndes. Uncle William Poole married a niece of fatheršs, his sisteršs child. Their children on their fatheršs side are my first cousins, and on their motheršs my second. Uncle William Poole went into the army in 1862, was wounded in the battle of Franklin, Tenn. In the Fall of 1864 and died of blood poison. Cousin Eva, his wife died early in the Fall of 1860. My grandma had a small plantation and a few Negroes. She married the second time, James Meadows, and had a large family. Grandma also lived in a double log house with a room on each side of the log pens, making 6 rooms and a hall separating 3 on each side. None of my people were proud, but were plain with no pretense.
Now for your motheršs family people. On her motheršs side I know almost nothing, only they were respectable people, and that one of her kin was very wealthy. Her mother was very industrious, working out in the field hoeing cotton in Spring and picking it in the Fall. Your mother was like her in industry and the only child that was. She had her second husband when I saw them in 1872 in Texas. They moved from Alabama to Texas in 1869. Her second husband, Sneed, was poor though honest and upright.
The name of your motheršs fatheršs family as Cottingham. I knew two of her uncles in 1868, Washington and Wesley. They were living on the old home place. Their father had died. The old man was well off, owned a medium sized plantation and slaves to cultivate it. He lived in a nice house. He gave your motheršs father, John Cottingham, a good education and made a Methodist preacher out of him. The accomplished young John Cottingham met and married a Miss Caldwell, the first child was a son, Rufus. Four years later, in October 1858, the second child was born, a daughter Mary, destine to be your mother. Your mother and her brother Rufus were, in build, features and complexion purely Cottinghams. Their father, Their Uncle Wash, and his son Warner, were the same all alike. Wesley didnšt look to be any kin to them. They were all honorable men. John, your motheršs father, was poor, he barely made a living at preaching, and he wouldnšt work. He had a little property. He died when your mother was three years old. Her grandfather gave her a Negro youth. Her mother married after the war was over, a young man five or six years her junior, after having the offer of a man who was tolerably well to do. But she chose Sneed because she thought he would be good to her two children, which he was, and exception in that respect, but he was a poor worker and no manager. It was her management that kept soul and body together, she wore the breeches, she advised him and forced him too. Our Uncle Rufus died January 1875 from relapse of pneumonia in Dallas, Texas."

General Notes: Husband - Benjamin BELL, Sr.

Benjamin BELL was born in Virginia about 1728. He married about 1748 Martha TUCKER, daughter of Joseph TUCKER, Jr. and Lucretia WYNNE. Benjamin moved his family to Craven County, South Carolina about 1764 when he first appears there in land records.

NOTE: Although Southside Virginia Families, Volume 1, by John B. Boddie and John Bennett Boddie is cited for Benjamin as a son of John and Hannah BELL, there are numerous errors in the presentation of Benjamin BELL's family on page 38 of this book which should not be cited as a source for Benjamin family. RLD

"We know that William DANIEL and the BELL family moved to Edgefield about 1770. I think the Capt. Benjamin BELL Family may have preceded this William DANIEL by a few years and the BELLs were originally from Sussex County, VA. Benjamin BELL went on to found what is the present day, Aiken, SC, which is located just a few miles south of DANIEL's home in present day southern Edgefield County, SC." [John R. Clarke]

13 January 1793 SC Edgefield Deed Edgefield Deed Book 8, pp 168-173. James WALKER to Joseph RAYBOUN land on Rocky Creek of Turkey Creek. Land was originally Benjamin BELL's, then SINQUEFIELD, then Isaac KIRKLAND, then James WALKER Edgefield SC Deed Books 1-12 Hendrix 109. Samuel WALKER was Benjamin BELL's son-in-law and Executor of Benjamin's will.

John A. Chapman, in the History of Edgefield County, 1897, writes: "In 1779, Benjamin BELL raised a company, composed of both Whigs and Loyalists, and joined General WILLIAMSON in his expedition against the Cherokees. The Indians, in a spirit of derision, were accustomed to speak of General WILLIAMSON as a cow driver. WILLIAMSON retorted by calling them cattle. Captain BELL was killed in this expedition and I have been informed that some of his descendants think to this day that he was killed in the up-country while looking after his cows. Honorable John M. BELL, and the DANIELs and EDWARDSes, are worthy descendants of this brave and worthy pioneer. A short time before his death he had been digging for silver on the south fork of the Little Saluda, and his comrades, after their return from the expedition against the Cherokees, called it Mine Creek, which name it still bears."

In 1920, Frank and Sallie BELL are living at 509 South Broadway Ave in Tyler, Texas. The census for that year shows that their sons Henry and Frank, Jr. and their wives, Elizabeth and Helen, respectively, are living with them. Census extracts are "509 20 26 BELL, F. M.

General Notes: Wife - Sallie SWANN

Frank M. BELL married Miss Sallie Swann, daughter of Thomas R. Swann, a cotton merchant of Tyler.
The 1900 census shows that "Frank" and Sallie have been married for 25 years. She has had 8 children, 5 who are alive.
Also in the household is "SWANN, Sarah Aunt W F Oct 1824 75 Wd 48 0 0 Virginia Virginia Virginia". From this we know that she was born in Virginia, had been married for 48 years, was widowed, and claimed to have had no children. Both of her parents were born in Virginia. SWANN is likely her husband's name, not her maiden name.

General Notes: Husband - Judge Benjamin Reeves McCUTCHEN

The McCUTCHEN family were direct descendants of John McCUTCHEN, one of the earliest settlers of Shanandoah Valley, Virginia. Many representatives of this Scotch-Irish family are found in the Southern states.
Benjamin Reeves McCUTCHEN, son of William McCUTCHEN, a Revolutionary soldier, was born in Jackson County, Georgia in 1797. His father, William, came from Augusta County, Virginia, shortly after the Revolution and settled in Hall County. Benjamin R. married Jane BELL in 1821, coming to Cherokee County, Georgia, very soon after this section was taken over by the State. He owned a large tract of land near Lafayette and the old McCUTCHEN home was one of the early landmarks of that section. He was one of the early representatives in the Georgia Legislature.
Benjamin and Jane had five children: Ira William, 1822-1876, who married Juliet A. McCULLOH; Cicero Decatur, 1824-1905, who married Frances KELLEY; Wyatt Socrates, 1827-1879, who married first Scott STUART and second Sarah Geraldine McCULLOH, Juliet's sister; Augustus Raymond, 1836-1886, who married Mattie McCULLOH*, Juliet and Sarah G.'s sister; and Cynesa Jane, 1841-?, who was never married.
* Not true. Martha "Mattie" McCULLOH, Juliet and Sarah G.'s sister, married Israel Pickens RUSSELL on 18 August 1859 at Natural Bridge, Walker County, Georgia, and remained married to Israel until his death in 1922. Martha's marriage to I. P. RUSSELL is also listed in the History of Walker County, page 453. Augustus married a Martha E. about 1871, her maiden name not found. RLD

Benjamin R. McCUTCHEON was a Justice of the Inferior Court of Walker County from March 30, 1840 - January 14, 1841.

Obituary: "SENATOR B. R. McCUTCHEN. - We have the pain of reporting the death of the Hon. B. R. McCUTCHEN, the Georgia Senator from the 44th District. He died last Thursday night at his residence near Lafayette, in Walker county. He had attained the ripe age of seventy-four years, and leaves a record of unblemished worth. He had been in feeble health for some time, and fully realized that the hour of his death was near at hand. Though feeble in body, his mind was vigorous to the last. For half a century he sustained a spotless character, and was honored with many positions of trust in Church and State. And there is full recognition by all that knew him that a good and useful man has passed away. - Atl. Const." [Columbus Daily Enquirer, January 27, 1870, page 1]

Benjamin Reeves McCUTCHEN and his wife, Jane BELL, are buried in Lafayette cemetery, Walker County, Georgia.

Children

General Notes: Wife - Catherine DANIEL

Catherine DANIEL was one of two daughters shown under 10 in her father, William's household in the 1800 census. She married Llewellyn Williamson THREEWITS in 1808. They had three children between 1810 and 1812.
"William DANIEL of Edgefield, dau. Catherine -m- Llewellyn THREEWITS. Of Lexington Dist. Richland Eq. Roll 71. 1811".
The marriage was not a happy one as evidenced by Catherine separating from Llewellyn and his moving in with his mother. Court records show him to have been a drunkard who died in 1814.
Sometime prior to 1820, Catherine remarried to John BELL.
DeSaussure's Equity Reports, Vol. 4, page 560 shows Chancellor DeSaussure's resume of the evidence given in the case of "Catherine THREEWITS by her next friend, vs, Llewellin THREEWITS", which was heard at Columbia in July 1, [18]15.

General Notes: Husband - William DANIEL

William DANIEL of Edgefield County, South Carolina was William O'DANIEL, born 1747 in Centreville, Fairfax County, Virginia. He was a son of John O'DANIEL, proven by the below indenture recorded in Fairfax County Deed Book Z, pages 473-476, wherein John O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia, and his [second] wife Ann [McINTOSH], for love and ten dollars, deeded 1000 acres in the County of Fayette and State of Kentucky to their son, William, identified as "William O'DANIEL of the County of Edgefield, District of Ninety six and State of South Carolina."

"This Indenture made this thirteenth day of May in the year of our Lord Seventeen hundred and Ninety Seven Between John ODANIEL of the County of Fairfax and Common Wealth of Virginia & Ann his wife of the one part and William ODANIEL of the County of Edgefield District of ninety six & State of South Carolina of the other part Witnesseth that the said John O'DANIEL and Ann his wife for and in Consideration of the Natural Love and Regard which they have for and bear toward the said William ODANIEL son of the said John ODANIEL as also for and in Consideration of the sum of Ten Dollars to them the said John ODANIEL and Ann his wife by the said William ODANIEL in hand and paid at and before the Sealing and Acknowledgment of these presents the Receipt whereof they the said John ODANIEL and Ann his wife doth hereby Acknowledge & him the said William ODANIEL and his heirs thereof and therefrom Release and fully acquit Have Given Granted Bargained and Sold Aliened and Confirmed and by these presents Do give grant Bargain and Sell Alien and Confirm unto him the said William ODANIEL and to his heirs and Assigns forever a Tract part of a Tract on Parcel of Land Containing One Thousand Acres Situate lying and being in the County of Fayette and State of Kentucky and on the westside(?)

Wagoner Ct Cu(?)"
(Transcribed by Robert Louis Daniell from the printouts of microfilmed copies of Fairfax County, Virginia Deed Book Z1. Surnames have been capitalized and items in ( ) are added. Punctuation marks were rarely discernible.)

In his will, proven in 1799, John O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia names his son, William O'DANIEL. William had shed his Celtic O' about the time he migrated to South Carolina, using DANIEL as his surname. Most records, including his Will, show his name as William DANIEL. William was given "one thousand acres of land lying in the state of Kentucky part of a greater track", in which William had already received an indenture for $10 and "love". All of John O'DANIEL's children had dropped the Celtic O' by 1799, but John still used O'DANIEL in all his children's names in his will.

Previous information which lead Tuck Wilson and Robert Daniell to believe that William, b. 1747, was John O'DANIEL's son was:
(1) This military record: "William DANIEL - Born Centerville, Va., 1747; died Edgefield Dist., S. C., 1807. Enlisted in S. C. under General SUMTER. He married Lucretia BELL." (See D. A. R. Records 115 P. 6). Source: Family Archive Viewer, Virginia Military Records, Appendix: State-Wide and Miscellaneous Records stating that William was born in Centerville, VA, and married Lucretia BELL. The deed above proves this assignment to be true.
(Comment: As to William's Rev. Service, I reviewed several sources and can only find one William Daniel serving under Sumter. It is stated best in "Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution" by Bobby Gilmer Moss, page 231:" Daniel, William - b. 1747, NC, d 1807, m. Lucretia Bell He served in the militia under Col Taylor and Gen Sumter (moved to Georgia) A. A. 1725; McCall, III, 64." Note the b. 1747 NC and Moved to Georgia. Compare the above to this from "Georgia Rev. War Soldiers Graves" Vol 2 page 418: Laurens County Georgia - William Daniel, b. 1747, d. 1807 served in the SC militia under Col. Taylor and Gen Tomas Sumter." I think both William Daniels are getting in on one record. Your Virginia record leads me to believe our William actually served under Taylor (a neighbor). There are mistakes everywhere. Tuck Wilson)
In addition, Coy K. Johnston wrote in his work "Ancestry of Elizabeth Jonhston Nee Daniel of St. Peter's Parish (Now Hampton County), Beufort District , South Carolina" dated March 1, 1978: "William Daniel disappeared from the Pitt County records, but according to Charles Brunk Heinemann, Daniel Families of the Southern States (Washington, D. C., 1949), vol. 2, p.16, William settled in Edgefield District, S. C., and served in the Revolution under General Sumter (and that his wife was the former Lucretia Bell, citing D. A. R. Lineage books, vol. 113, p. 6)." [Note: Parenthetical information is in Mr. Johnston's work. Pitt County, mentioned here, is in North Carolina. RLD]
(2) John O'DANIEL, William and Stephen O'DANIEL's father, inherited land on Accotink Run, Fairfax, VA from his father, William (b. 1691?). John left this land to his wife, Anne "Nancy" McINTOSH, for her lifetime, and in 1854, John's son Stephen died at his place called Airhill, near Centreville in Fairfax. This 19 acre plot was purchased by Stephen and adjoined the property granted to William (1691?), willed to John, and given to Nancy as a life estate.
(3) the notation in "The History of Hancock County, Georgia" that states "After Levi's death, Martha DANIELL married Jack DANIEL, said to have been a cousin of her first husband." William DANIEL was a first cousin of Levi DANIELL, and his son, John "Jack" DANIEL was a second cousin to Levi. This assignment is in accord with that statement.
(4) the fact that others, purported to be William of Edgefield's brothers, are not named in John O'DANIEL's will, a good indication that they are not William's siblings.
(5) when James O'DANIEL left Fairfax for South Carolina, his niece, William's sister, Frances, daughter of John, went with him and married there a man named May. William migrated to South Carolina as well, where he amassed thousands of acres.
In regard to William's sister Frances who married a "man named May": On 28 November 1801, William DANIEL of Edgefield District sold to Thomas MAY of Fairfield District for one hundred and forty dollars "all that plantation or tract of land containing one hundred and eighty nine acres acres... on the waters of Little River and Creek... being part of a tract of two hundred acres originally granted toWm Walton..." It adjoined lands of Wm BILL [BELL?], Barney POPE, and Edward McGRAW[?]. The deed was witnessed by John MAY and Edward ANDREWS. [Deed_N_0428a, 1802, Fairfield, South Carolina]

These records appear to mark the locations of land and list neighbors for William DANIEL, some may not be his.

Edgefield District: "10 May 1775: Francis BRAZINA (?), Planter of Camden Dist, SC to Arthur SIMKINS, Esq. of Ninety-Six dist, SC for 25 pounds, sold 250 acres on PUCKETS' Creek a branch of STEVENS Creek & Savannah River, originally granted 31 Aug 1774, & adj.

Wit: Jesse DANIEL, William DANIEL, who swore by oath 15 Feb 1776 in Orangeburg Dist, SC before John FAIRCHILD, J. P." Jesse and William DANIEL are first cousins, sons of James O'DANIEL and John O'DANIEL, respectively, of Fairfax County, Virgina. 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]

William married before 1778 Lucretia BELL, daughter of Benjamin BELL and Martha TUCKER.

On 4 November 1778, John BELL in the State of South Carolina Craven County sold to William DANIEL, planter in the Sate aforesaid of the sd. part, for one thousand pound Lawful ____ money of this State 100 acres lying on the North Side of Broad River on a small branch thereof bounding on all sides by vacant land when laid out to Stephen ELLIS granted by Stephen ELLIS unto John BELL the 8th February 1774. Witnesses: Bar. POPE and Lucy POPE. In a memorandum dated 16 May 1787 headed Fairfield County, John BELL acknowledged the signing, sealing and delivering the wittin deed to William DANIEL. Certified 23 July 1787 by ____ MILLING Clerk of the Court.

This record mentions Effingham County, Georgia, but the family has no record of William being there, South Carolina Revolutionary Soldiers, Sailors Patriots & Descendants, Vol. 1, Carter-Maddox, p. 26, lists "DANIEL, William, Sr. (RS-SC) 1747-1807, Effingham Co., Ga., m. Lucretia BELL" It lists William and Lucretia's family with 10 children (they had nine) in column format: John, Jesse, James, Stephen, William, Mary, Catherine, Martha, Marsh, and Elizabeth m. ____ RAIFORD. There was no child named Marsh; Martha had married Capt. Bryant MARSH.

Victor Russell DANIEL, M.D., a 3rd great-grandson of William and Lucretia Bell DANIEL of Edgefield County, South Carolina writes: "I know that William O'DANIEL (b. about 1747) moved to SC in 1768. He apparently acquired 1,000 acres of land in "Fairfield District" before joining his uncle, James O'DANIEL (Daniell), who had moved to SC shortly before. As my grandfather wrote: James became "the owner of a thousand acre tract of land on waters of Indian Creek, 5 or 6 miles East from the present Daniel plantation." He further states that William: "soon thereafter having acquired ownership of large landed interests on waters of Little Mine Creek in Edgefield District, where he lived the rest of his life, still owned by the Daniels; his landed holdings at the time of his death in 1807 exceeded 5,000 acres." One of William's sons (named William lived with his mother in Newberry (or Newberry County) after his mother's remarriage following the death of her husband. He apparently moved back to his father's original land (currently near Saluda, SC and built a new house there in 1816 on what my grandfather referred to as "the present Daniel plantation." This building was regretfully demolished in, I believe the 1960's and the land has been sold. According to my grandfather's notes, William DANIEL, who moved to SC in 1768, married Lucretia BELL, the daughter of Benjamin BELL, Sr., who owned land nearby. She remarried Zachariah Smith BROOKS, from Newberry County. I do not know how my grandfather discovered this information, but he does cite in a bibliography, the wills of William DANIEL (father and son's wills), both recorded at the J. of P. office, Edgefield, SC. Feel free to quote my grandfather's info, if you like."

COMPILER'S NOTE (by Payne Daniel): In his book, "Daniel Families of the Southern States", Vol. 2, p. 16, Charles Brunk Heinemann relates that William married the former Lucretia Bell and that these folks were likely from Eastern Isle of Wight, Virginia. Also, a "Family Group Record - 227" of unspecified origin, states that William was born 1732, in Tyrrell Co., N. C., and married Lucretia Bell in S. C. This is an incorrect assumption because the William who married Lucretia was born in Centerville, Fairfax County, Va., in 1747. It appears that William Daniel the son of Thomas Daniel and Elizabeth Lanier of Tyrrell County, N. C., was mixed up with William Daniel who later settled in Edgefield District, S. C., and as noted, his wife was the former Lucretia Bell. We should also put to rest any connection of William Daniel of Edgefield, S. C., with John Osborn(e) Daniel of Prince Georges Co., Va., as a son number 4. In the "Franklin/Madison Co., Georgia Connections" William Daniel, b. 1740-1760, is assigned to John Osborn Daniel, formerly of Prince Georges Co., Va., but there are no statistics given for this assignment. It is quite clear from the facts enumerated above that William Daniel of Edgefield, S. C., was the son of John "O'DANIEL" of Fairfax County, Virginia.


General Notes: Wife - Lucretia BELL

Lucretia BELL, daughter of Benjamin BELL and Martha TUCKER, was born in 1757 in Albemarle Parish, Sussex County, Virginia. Her parents moved to Craven County, South Carolina about 1764.

Lucretia married William DANIEL before 1778., the approximate date of the birth of their son John.

William died in 1807. In his LW&T, he made the following bequest to "my beloved wife", Lucretia, "the plantation where I now live for her natural life also the third of my personal property, household & kitchen furniture of every sort & after her death to be divided amongst my chn."

Lucretia later married second Colonel Zachariah Smith BROOKS. She died in 1822.

General Notes: Husband - Colonel Zachariah Smith BROOKS

Captain Zachariah Smith Brooks b. 1760? married Elizabeth Butler b. 1766 Daughter of Captain James Butler and Mary Simpson from Loudoun Co, Virginia.
Zachariah Smith BROOKS was born May 18, 1765, and died 1848. He married Elizabeth BUTLER. She was born December 17, 1766.
His pension paper says; "Zachariah Smith BROOKS enlisted in Newberry District, S.C., shortly after the evacuation of Cambridge by Gen. GREENE, and served six months as a private in Capt. John WALLACE's Company of S. C. Troops, and was in several skirmishes with the Tories. He served in 1781 and 1782 in Capt. Joseph TOWLES, company, Col. Samuel HAMMOND's S.C. regiment, was in a skirmish on the Edisto River, and was stationed about six weeks on the frontier guarding the incursions of the Indians, also during his service he was enlisted as one of a corps called the Life Guard of Pickins, length of service, six months." He was afterwards appointed Col. of State Calvary, and as always known as Col. BROOKS.
It seems very evident that Elizabeth (Smith) BROOKS died when Zachariah Smith BROOKS was an infant, and (Zachariah's father) James BROOKS, m. 2nd in Chatham County, N.C., and they were the parents of Simon BROOKS as shown in the will of her father. Margaret seems to have been the mother of twin sons, Jacob and Esau, as the name Simon is found often among descendants. Jacob and Esau were born about 1769 and Margaret (Thomasson) BROOKS died between 1788 and 1793.
Zachariah Smith and Elizabeth Butler BROOKS lived in Edgefield County, SC, where he left a will dated 1843 and recorded June 6, 1848. Their children were:
Whitfield BROOKS, b. February 3, 1790, Newberry, South Carolina; d. Roselands, Edgefield District, South Carolina.
Lucinda BROOKS, b. October 3, 1791, Edgefield County, South Carolina; d. 1843, Monticello, Jefferson County, Florida.
Behetheland BROOKS, b. February 20, 1793, Blocker's Township, Edgefield County, South Carolina; d. 1864, Monticello, Jefferson County, Florida.
Nancy BROOKS, b. January 30, 1798; m. Bartlett M BLOCKER.
Eliza BROOKS, b. 1799; d. 1802.
In the History of Edgefield County, John A Chapman writes: "Zachary Smith BROOKS regularly attended Zoar Methodist Church, for a number of years his was the only carriage in all that part of the country."

General Notes: Wife - Marie Louise BELL

An excerpt from a letter Marie Louise Bell wrote to "Aunt Jane's Letter Club" published Sunday, March 3, 1929 in the Times-Picayune, New Orleans, Louisiana on page 116: "As I am qutite sure that you can't remember what all your nieces and nephews look like, I will describe myself again. I am 5 feet 2 inches tall, have brown hair, hazel eyes and a medium complexion. I will be 12 in March, and I'm left-handed." Marie's return addrerss was 7707 Plum, New Orleans.

Obituary*:
DAVIS, MARIE BELL, of Mountain Brook, passed away Monday, September 6, 2010.
Marie was born in Fort Deposit, Alabama on March 25, 1917. She was salutatorian at Curtis High School in New Orleans, Louisiana at age 16. Her yearbook said, "Shy, demure and a sweet little belle, to know her is to love her well." Marie graduated from Barnard College for Women in New York City with a degree in psychology. She won first place in "The Most Beautiful Girls in New York Who Wear Glasses" contest. She was a field director for the Red Cross in New York City, and met and married William Edgar Davis from Huntsville, Alabama, who was stationed there before leaving for service in World War II.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Vincent Hardy Bell and Marie Mary Bell Bushatzky Walker; brother, Joseph Bell; sister, Agnes Bell Wooters; and beloved husband of 50 years, William Edgar Davis.
Marie was a member of the Shades Valley Presbyterian Church, Barnard College Alumni Association, Vestavia Country Club, American Association of University Women, National and Birmingham Audubon Societies, and the Girl Scouts of America. In addition she was a member of the bridge club, a Criterion Club and a Sunday afternoon hiking group. Marie loved reading and supported the downtown and Emmet O'Neal libraries. She and Bill enjoyed traveling and went to 48 states and many countries during their life together.
She will be missed by her family: daughter, Brenda Davis Carraway; grandson, Edward A. Carraway (Jesslyn); great-grandson, Davis Edward Carraway; great-granddaughter, Lily Kate Carraway; half sister, Eda Bushatzky Smith (Gerry); nieces, Carol Thalimer (Dan) and Wendy Staebler; and her loving companions, Betty Kay and Emma Mullins.
A graveside service will be held at 1:00 PM at Elmwood on Friday, September 10, 2010.
[The Birmingham News, Birmingham, Alabama, Thursday, September 9, 2010]
*The reference to "Marie MARY Bell Bushatzky Walker" in the obit for Marie Bell Davis for the individual listed as MARY Loiuse May (wife of Robert Gustave Buschatzky) are both wrong. My grandmother's full name was "MARIE Louise MAY (maiden name) Bell (1st husband) Buschatzky (2nd husband) Walker (3rd husband)" as seem mostly correct in 1946. (Before Robert Buschatzky died, and she married Ellis Walker) in the West Point memorial for her oldest son Joe who died in 1942.

He was a man of pronounced political views, but had the interests of his adopted country at heart. His wife was born in Ireland in 1800. She was a daughter of Thomas and Bessie (Duke) Parke. They reared a family of eight children: Henry, Eliza, Mary A, Fannie, Eleanor, Thomas P., Margaret J. and Hettie. The father died in 1857, and the mother survived him until 1865. Judge Bell, the subject of this notice, was born in North Carolina in 1835, and was but nine years of age at the time his parents removed to Kemper county, Miss.

Four children have been horn to the Judge and his wife: Samuel and Canning are living, and James and Mary are deceased. Mrs. Bell died in October, 1889. She was a worthy member of the Baptist church. The Judge belongs to the Methodist Episcopal Church. He is a member of the Masonic order, and is a man of generous impulses who believes in home and home protection.

"As an anecdote, I learned from my mother (Eda Claire Buschatzky Smith) that not only did my grandmother, born as Marie Louise May, not have a birth certificate (the first records of her shows up in the 1900 census at age 2 years), but she was not originally named Marie LOUISE May but was originally Marie ANTOINETTE May... According to my mother, her mother's middle name was changed from "Antoinette" to "Louise" when Marie May was 12 years old apparently because her mother took her to a fortune teller and was told that if she went through life with the name "Marie Antoinette" she would end up either a suicide or mass murderer." [Colin K. Smith, email, 26 February 2014]

"Marie Walker, died in 1979 in Birmingham, AL after having spent about 18 months in a nursing home (she went in around Christmas 1977.)" [Colin K. Smith, email, 22 April 2014]

Marie Walker, born 22 November 1897, died in October 1979 at age 82. Her last residence was in Jefferson County, Alabama 35223. Social Security Number 078-24-6330 was issued in New York.

Vincent Hardy Bell and "Marie Mary Bell Bushatzky Walker" [*] are named as parents in the September 9, 2010 obituary of Marie Bell Davis.
[* The reference to "Marie MARY Bell Bushatzky Walker" in the obit for Marie Bell Davis is wrong. My grandmother's full name was "MARIE Louise MAY (maiden name) Bell (1st husband) Buschatzky (2nd husband) Walker (3rd husband)." [Colin K. Smith, email, 25 February 2014]
