43. John DANIEL, Esq. (William8, John, RW-PS-VA2, William I1) was born Cal 2 Feb 1778 in Fairfield County, South Carolina and died on 29 Oct 1827 in Hancock County, Georgia about age 49. Other names for John were Jack DANIEL and John DANIELL.

General Notes: John DANIEL, called Jack, was a son of William DANIEL and Lucretia BELL. In the "History of Hancock County Georgia", Jack DANIEL was said to be a cousin of Levi DANIELL. John's middle name is said by some to have been "Furman", a middle name used in his brother William DANIEL's family, but no record yet supports this for John.

Names Indexed: DANIEL, John/DANIEL, William/SHURLEY, Absalom/MELLON, Benjamin/WINSER/WATSON, Arthur/Locations: Mine Creek/Dry Creek/Little Saluda River/Edgefield County/Ninety Six District. This Plat for John DANIEL may be a gift to him by his father, William DANIEL.

In 1803, probably in Hancock County, Georgia, John DANIEL married Martha Pearson Cook DANIELL, widow of his cousin, Levi DANIELL. Martha had three children under the age of 7 from her marriage to Levi.

John and Martha DANIEL had eight additional children of their own, while also raising Levi's three orphans and "Jesse Daniell AUSTON, son of Betty AUSTON", another cousin and grandson of Levi's father, James DANIELL.

John DANIEL is mentioned numerous times in the Inferior Court and Ordinary Court Minutes for Hancock County in which his name is frequently spelled as both DANIEL and DANIELL. He served as a Justice of the Peace. On January 6, 1809, he took a deposition from proving a deed between Willie ABERCROMBIE and John HERBERT. In 1810, he was "appointed overseer of the road leading from Charles McDONNAL's to CARRS"; and in 1825 was granted his petition "to lay out & straighten & keeping in repair a road at his own expense from the ten mile post on the road leading from Sparta to Milledgeville near Hubbard FERRELL's, by his mills to the Baldwin County line."

James Levi DANIELL, orphan of Levi DANIELL, chose John DANIELL, his step-father, to be his guardian. In a Court Order, January 3, 1814, letters of guardianship were granted to John DANIELL as guardian over the person and property of James DANIEL. As a result of James' action, John was also appointed guardian over James' sister Catherine DANIELL.

When Juliet DANIELL, the third and youngest orphan of Levi DANIELL, came of age to chose her guardian, she also chose John DANIEL. John gave his bond and security in the sum of $12,000 to be appointed Juliet DANIELL's guardian.

John DANIELL, also George RIVES, Tully CHOICE, James BUTTS, and Simmons BUTTS, was appointed an appraiser of the estate of Joseph THORP in 1815. Later, he, together with Baxter SMITH, James SIMMONS, Benjamin SANFORD, & George RIVES, was also an appraiser for the estate of James EASTER.

In April 1816, John had requested letters of administration for intestate portions of the last will and testament of James DANIELL, father of his three wards; however, William HARDWICK Jr., executor of James' estate presented caveats to the court and prevented issuance of the letters when the court ruled that "an executor...has the sole power and authority to administer upon the intestate part of the estate as well as upon the testate." John appealed this decision. The appeal apparently failed because in 1824, James L. DANIELL also applied for letters of administration de bonis non against William HARDWICK on the estate of James DANIEL, dec'd.

Published in the Georgia Journal, Milledgeville, Georgia, Wednesday, December 11, 1816, Page 3: "On Monday the 30th of this instant, will be hired at my plantation on Island creek, the negroes belonging to the heirs of Levii Daniel, deceased; and all persons that are in arrears for the hiring of said negroes will do well to make payment by that day. JOHN DANIEL, Guard'n. Hancock county, Dec. 9."

About 1817, in regards to the estate of Henry A. GENDRATT, John DANIELL, an Uncle of the intestate, objected to letters of administration being issued to Jeremiah SANFORD and John G. LUMSDEN because they were not related to Henry GENDRATT and Jeremiah was about six hundred dollars in debit to the estate. John's wife, Martha, Aunt of Henry and daughter of John COOK, grandfather of the said GENDRATT, was his kin and John therefore requested executorship of the will.

John married Martha Pearson COOK,113 daughter of Capt. John COOK, Sr., RS-SC 114,115 and Martha Ann PEARSON,114 on 16 Oct 1803. Martha was born on 27 Mar 1777 in Broad River, Cook's Ferry, South Carolina, died on 9 Sep 1842 in Barbour County, Alabama at age 65, and was buried in Ivey Cemetery, Russell County, Alabama.

Marriage Notes: Date from Teresa Griffis.

General Notes: Martha Pearson COOK was born 27 March 1777, her father was Captain John COOK and her mother his second wife Martha Ann PEARSON. She was raised on their homestead, Cooks Ferry, on the Broad River in what is now Fairfield County, South Carolina. Sometime after 1790, the COOK family moved to her father's bounty lands in Hancock County, Georgia.

Martha married Levi DANIELL in 1796 and bore him three children, James Levi, Catherine B., and Juliet Anna, before Levi died in 1800 at age 40, leaving Martha a widow at 23 with three children under the age of four.

Levi DANIELL bequeathed, ... "To my beloved wife Martha during her natural life, 150 acres land including the dwelling house and premises wheron I now live on Island Creek, to be laid off on a square adjoining a dividing line that may be hereafter run between my stepmother Nancy DANIELL an myself agreeable to my father's will, and to adjoin the lands of John HARBIRT. I also lend to my wife Negroes Abby, Ivey, Lucy, March, Sam, Friday, George, Flora the younger, and Maggy. After my wife's death the land and Negroes to be equally divided between my three children hereinafter named. ..."

After two and a half years as a widow, Martha remarried to Levi's cousin, John (Jack) DANIEL in 1803, making her Martha Pearson COOK DANIELL DANIEL. Martha had eight more children by Jack. They took in one of Levi's nephews, Jessie Daniell AUSTON who legally changed his name to Jessie DANIELL in 1807.

Martha was widowed again in 1827 when John was thrown from his horse and killed. She was left with their five youngest children still between 5 and 17 years old.

John DANIEL provided for Martha in his will: "It is my will and desire that all the Negroes of which I may be possessed, together with every other species of personal property should be kept together upon my two plantations, vis, the plantation on which I now live, and ___ Mill (?) place for the natural benefit of my wife and children,...And it is further my said desire that both my said plantations should be kept in good repair for cropping whether rented or not; and the particular profits arising from crops shall be applied to the use of my wife and the caring and education of my children share and share alike...and desire that when my wife marries or any of my children arrive at the age of twenty one years or marry, they or either of them upon the happening of such event shall be entitled a distributive share of my whole personal estate..."

The Hancock County census of 1830 (Series: M19 Roll:18 Page 151) line 21 shows Martha DANIEL, 50-60 (age 53), with 2 males 10-15 (Levi Lawrence David and Benjamin Franklin Bell), two males 15-20 ( John William and unknown), one male 20-30 (unknown), one female 15-20 (Carolyn Grace) and 55 slaves. Benjamin may have been marked in the 15-20 box and the second male 10-15 may then have been Martha's grandson, Levi Cake, who is not enumerated in his fathers' household, listed same page line 7.

In 1835, Martha's son, James Levi DANIELL moved his family to Russell County, Alabama. Martha, some of her children by Jack, and a number of Hancock County neighbors moved to Glennville, Russell County, Alabama about the same time. On November 2, 1835, on a motion, the Hancock County Court of Ordinary ordered that Arthur J. BUTTS, Henry GAREY, James W. SIMMONS, Benjamin HARPER, and William BUTTS are appointed Commissioners to lay off and set apart to Caroline DANIEL her distributive share of the estate of her father and report their proceedings to the Executor. Martha DANIEL, widow, requested that her name be added to this motion. The Court so ordered.

Martha died September 9, 1842 in Barbour County, Alabama. (This part of Barbour County later became Russell County.) She is buried in Ivey Cemetery, Glennville, Russell County, Alabama near her son and daughter-in-law, James Levi DANIELL and his wife, Elizabeth Clements BUTTS. Martha's headstone is broken off at it's base, still in place, and lies on the ground. It reads:

In
memory of
MARTHA P. DANIELL
who died
Sept. 9, 1842,
in the 65th year
of her age.

"Blessed are the dead which die in
the Lord, that they may rest from
their labors and their works do
follow them."
-------------------

Compiler's note: I visited Ivey Cemetery on 1and 3 December 2006. Mr. Wilfred Davis, who lives nearby, escorted me to the cemetery. He said that Barron I. and Charlotte Pirie Shacklette, recent owners of the property, reclaimed the cemetery from massive overgrowth of vegetation and the cemetery is cared for. Barron and Charlotte are deceased and buried there, he in 2001 and she in 1993. The good sized cemetery is located off the southern dead end of a single lane clay road, about 50 yards to the right of a large white house at 250 Continuation Street, Pittsview, Alabama. There is room in it for numerous unmarked graves. According to dates on gravestones, Ivey Cemetery was in use from 1842 until 1875. Sadly, many graves are damaged and gravestones broken. Inscriptions are expectedly weathered. Some graves appear to have been robbed of foundation bricks or other materials. A small section of mortar and beautiful red brick lies among other materials by the southern fence line. Large slabs from many of the graves are either askew, broken (probably from being dropped when removed from their bases) and/or partially buried. The grave of my great-great-grandfather, Rev. James Levi DANIELL, 1797- 1846, over half sunken, still has its brick foundation, although a few bricks are missing. A number of unmarked small slabs with etched borders and possibly foot and side of grave markers are in piles or leaned on trees. The cemetery, bordered on three sides by pasture is fenced, but a back gate to the pasture is broken down, allowing horses and cows to wander about. The area is well fertilized. (Robert Louis Daniell)

Ivey Cemetery is mentioned in the Marie Godfrey cemetery compilation (1960's) as: "8. cemetery on MITCHELL place, west of Glennville Plantation", also referring to it as the "IVY Family cemetery." She lists the following graves there:
DANIELL, Jas. L. ? July(?) 1797 Hancock CO, GA 14 April 1846 age 48 years, 9 mo 3 days

General Notes: Elizabeth DANIEL married Phillip Ephraim RAIFORD, V, about 1794. She had nine children by Phillip before he died about 1824. It is uncertain what happened to Elizabeth Daniel RAIFORD after Philip died in 1824.

This census record appears to be the family of Elizabeth Daniel RAIFORD in 1830.

1830 U.S. Census, South Carolina, Edgefield District, Edgefield; Series: M19 Roll: 172 Page: 178:

What happened to Elizabeth Daniel Raiford?

On several websites, there is a comment that "Elizabeth also married (2) THREWITZ." No supporting record has been found for this second marriage. Several requests to individuals for additional information concerning this statement have not been answered. Note: Elizabeth's sister, Catherine, married Llewellyn Williamson THREEWITZ in February 1810. Llewellyn died in Edgefield County, South Carolina in 1814."

Elizabeth married Phillip Ephraim RAIFORD, V, RS-SC, son of Philip Ephraim RAIFORD, IV, RS-SC 158,159 and Nancy Ann WOODWARD, about 1794. Phillip was born about 1765 in Edgefield District, South Carolina and died between 9 Feb 1824 and 19 Apr 1824 in Edgefield County, South Carolina.

General Notes: Philip Ephraim RAIFORD, V, son of Phillip Ephraim RAIFORD, IV, and Nancy Ann WOODWARD was born about 1765.

Phillip, V, served in Colonel Thomas Taylor's regiment in the Revolutionary War, Captain Miles company, 61 days service. [Green, "History of Richland County, South Carolina."]

Phillip is likely one of the two males over 16 in his father's household in the 1790 census of Fairfield County, South Carolina lists a "Philip RAIFORD 1 2 6 - 11" [Series: M637 Roll: 11 Page: 164]

Philip married Elizabeth DANIEL about 1794. She was a daughter of William DANIEL and Lucretia BELL of Edgefield County, South Carolna. Between 1795 and 1816, Philip and Elizabeth had nine children.

On August 16, 1813, John, James, and Jesse DANIEL and Bryan MARSH released their claim in the real estate given to Phillip RAIFORD, husband of Elizabeth DANIEL, by the will of her father, William DANIEL.

The U.S. Census, 1820, for Edgefield County, South Carolina, page 178, lists Philip RAIFORD V's family as 3 1 0 1 0 1 - 1 0 1 1 0. Reads: 3 males under 10 [Robert, Malachi, Thomas Woodward], 1 male 10-16 [James M.], 1 male 16-26 [either Phillip, William or John D.], one male over 45 [Phillip]; 1 female under 10 [Elizabeth], one female 16-26 [Nancy], 1 female 26-45 [Elizabeth].

"Philip RAIFORD V resided in Edgefield County, South Carolina, where he died in 1824. His will was probated April 19, 1824. In his will his wife is not named, although we know from other sources that she was Elizabeth DANIEL, daughter of William DANIEL. This William DANIEL was apparently a very well to-do planter owning large, tracts of land in both Edgefield and Fairfield Counties, South Carolina. He died in 1807 leaving a will which mentions his daughter (Elizabeth RAIFORD). Philip's will mentions four "Elder children" Philip, William, John and Nancy and five "Minor children" Thomas, Robert, James, Malachi and Elizabeth. The executors of the will were My "beloved sons" William RAIFORD and John RAIFORD." (Raiford L. PITTMAN)

In 1820 Martha is head of household in Edgefield County.

Martha married third Henry Hampton HILL about 1821, and had six children by him: Whitman Robinson, James Lodowick, Florella Pauline, William Mays, Lovick Sanchez, and Susan Abigail.

Henry died in 1857. In 1860, Martha Sarah HILL lives in the home of her son, Rev. Thomas Sumter DANIEL:

In the 1870 census of Edgefield County, South Carolina, Martha HILL, 73, widow, lives in the home of her son, Dr. Lovick HILL. Her daughter, Miss Sue HILL, 34, resides with them.


Children from this marriage were:

+ 227 M    i. John William DANIEL 172 was born on 9 Dec 1810 in Edgefield County, South Carolina and died in 1880 in Alabama at age 70.

+ 228 M    ii. Walter S. DANIEL was born about 1813 in South Carolina and died after 1834.

+ 229 M    iii. Rev. Thomas Sumter DANIEL 170,173 was born about 1815 in South Carolina170 and died on 27 Aug 1877 about age 62.

46. James DANIEL (William8, John, RW-PS-VA2, William I1) was born about 1784 in Fairfield District, South Carolina and died in 1816 in Edgefield County, South Carolina about age 32.

General Notes: James DANIEL was born after 1784. James is named in several records in conjunction with his brother, Jesse, but always as Jesse followed by James, most likely proving him to be the younger. The 1800 census indicated William and Lucretia had two sons in the home between 10 and 16. These then would have been James and Stephen. Their father, William, was the only other male, 45 and over, in the household.

In 1805, James married Mary "Polly" HILL, daughter of Lodowick and Susannah Grigsby HILL. Mary was born in 1786 in Probably Edgefield District, South Carolina and died in 1867 in Vineville, Bibb County, Georgia, at age 81.

James DANIEL wrote his Last Will & Testament on 3 April 1816, died before 16 May 1816, leaving seven children, all minors.

Note from John R. Clarke of Batesburg, South Carolina: "There is one William of Edgefield connection to the KEY family you might need to know about. A "J. KEY" sent in the obit for Mary Hill Daniel EDWARDS in 1867. Mary was the first wife of James DANIEL, a son of William of Edgefield, who married Rev. Robert L. EDWARDS after the death of James. I do not know whether he was a relative, a friend or a minister but he did send in this announcement to the Christian Advocate and he knew an awful lot about this family not to be related. So, there may well be a relationship between the KEY family and this DANIEL Family that we have not uncovered, yet."

James married Mary "Polly" HILL,174 daughter of Sgt. Lodowick HILL, RS-SC and Susannah GRIGSBY, in 1805 in Edgefield County, South Carolina.175 Mary was born on 3 Aug 1786 in Edgefield District, South Carolina174 and died on 30 Mar 1867 in Vineville, Bibb County, Georgia175 at age 80.

General Notes: "Mary (Polly) HILL, dau. of Lodowick HILL and Susannah GRIGSBY was born 3 August 1786 and died 1816 in Edgefield County, SC. She married James DANIELS, son of William DANIELS and Lucretia BELL and had seven children." as shown in "The Hills of Wilkes County Georgia and Allied Families" Vol II, pages 485-488

CONFLICT WITH RESEARCH NOTES from Billie Jones.
I have Mary Polly Hill married to Mr. Payne. [The Hills of Wilkes Co. Ga. and
Allied Families by M. B. Warren,1972, Heritage Papers, Danielsville, Ga. 30600, (p. 164 from Family Bible Record of Theophilus Hill).]
However, I have these notes showing the conflict: According to John R. Clarke, Lodowich M. HILL (1765-?) who married Susannah GRIGSBY (b. 1771 in Loudon County, VA) were the parents of Mary HILL (1786-1867) who married, first, James DANIEL, son of William DANIEL and Lucretia BELL of Edgefield County, SC. After he died in 1816 she married Rev. Robert L. EDWARDS of the GA Conference of the ME Church. She died in Bibb County, GA. This data is in conflict with what I have on a marriage to Mr. Payne.

1860 GEORGIA HALL HOG MTN P O; Series: M653 Roll: 126 Page: 204: In the household of PAYNE L 63 F W VA, is M. PAYNE, 84 F W SC. Mary Hill Daniel EDWARDS (PAYNE?) would have been 74 at this time. Might this have been she? Hall County is next to Bibb County where Mary is said to have died in 1867 in Vinesville, Georgia.

DEATH AND OBITUARY NOTICES FROM THE SOUTHERN CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE 1867-1878, Issue of May 17, 1867 - "Sister Mary EDWARDS died in Vineville, Ga., on 30th of March, aged 81 years. Her maiden name was HILL. She was first married to James DANIELL in 1805, who died in 1816. In the year 1827 she was married to Rev. Robert L. EDWARDS of the Georgia conference. J. S. Key." (Email, JRC, 6/26/2004)
This may not solve the conflict mentioned by Billie, above, but it appears that there may have been time for another marriage to a Mr. PAYNE if it occurred between 1816 and 1827. Curious though that it was not mentioned in the obituary if it happened, or the writer may have been unaware of it.


Children from this marriage were:

+ 230 F    i. Mary Lucretia DANIEL 173,176 was born on 6 Feb 1807 in Edgefield County, South Carolina, died on 20 Jan 1837 in Saluda County, South Carolina at age 29, and was buried in Ridge Spring Cemetery.

General Notes: Martha Daniel was born about 1780, determined from the 1830 census on Bryant MARSH's family in Wilcox County, Alabama. One female 50-60 is shown in that household. Martha DANIEL married Bryant MARSH about 1803. Bryant was born 30 Jan. 1777 in NC and died in Oct 1851 in Wilcox County, AL, at age 64. The 1810 census for Edgefield County, South Carolina for Bryant's family showed 2 males under 10 (Bryant, Jr. and William), 1 female under 10, that was Catherine; three children. The 1820 Census for Edgefield County, South Carolina for Bryant MARSH's household includes two males under 10 (Stephen and Edmund), one male 10-16 (William), one male 16-18 (Bryant, Jr.), no male 16-26, one male 26-45 (Capt. Bryant MARSH), no males 45 and above; two females under 10 (Martha and Julia), no females 10-16, one female 16-26 (Catherine), one female 26 45 (Martha Daniel MARSH), and no females 45 and above. The count is up to seven. John Perry and Benjamin Franklin Marsh were born about 1825 and 1827, making the total children nine, not allowing for any that may have died young and were not in the censuses.
NOTE: The name "Bryant" is found in documents as both Bryant and Bryan. During this time period "Bryant" is the prevalent spelling.

NOTE: Some have said that Sarah MARSH, born about 1805, who married William WIGGINS, was a child of Bryant MARSH and Martha DANIEL, but this Sarah was the daughter of Darius MARSH and Sarah SHAMBERGER of North Carolina. Darius, who died 12 Sep 1841, buried in Reed's Chapel Cemetery, Sumter County, Alabama, was the brother of Bryant MARSH. Darius' wife Sarah died in 1859 in Smith County, Texas, where many of Darius and Sarah's children and the William WIGGINS family had migrated in the early 1850's.
William Daniel Dec'd. Deed 31-451 Edgefield. Heirs John, James, and Jesse Daniel, Bryant Marsh (husband of William's daughter Martha).

Martha married Capt. Bryant MARSH, son of Edmund MARSH and Catherine BRYANT, about 1802. Bryant was born on 30 Jan 1777 in North Carolina, died in Oct 1851 in Prairie Bluff, Wilcox County, Alabama at age 74, and was buried in Marsh Family Cemetery.

General Notes: Bryant MARSH was born in Guilford County, North Carolina about 1777, the son of Edmund MARSH and Catherine BRYANT. His name is found in records of the times as both Bryant and Bryan MARSH. He migrated to Edgefield District, South Carolina by 1804 when he purchased land from Ogden COCKEROFT. About the same time, he married Martha DANIEL. Martha was a daughter of William DANIEL and Lucretia BELL (a second cousin to President Thomas Jefferson through her maternal line).

Bryant's deed of purchase is recorded as 2 March 1804 Ogden COCKEROFT to Bryan MARSH 300a on the head branches of Pen's Creek of Little Saluda River bounded by vacant land when surveyed, originally granted to said O. COCKEROFT 06 February 1775 by Governor Chas. Greville Montague; witnessed by Jesse DANIEL, John BUCKALEW, Polley GREEN; signed Ogden COCKEROFT ( not by mark ); proven 10 January 1807 by Jesse DANIEL; Wm. DANIEL, JP; recorded 2 February 1807. ( Ibid., Book 27, p. 394 ) Note: From Andrea File: 1775 Land Grant was delivered by John CALDWELL into the hands of Benjamin BELL for Ogden. Wm. BELL made the tax returns in Charleston, May 1774. It seems Ogden COCKEROFT may not have moved on to this land when the grant was made to him. This Benjamin BELL was Martha's grandfather.

The two records above, 1775 and 1807, each show a Jesse DANIEL as a witness. These are two different men. The one who is on the 1775 record is believed to be Jesse, who died about 1778, the son of an uncle of William DANIEL of Edgefield, James DANIELL of Camden District (Fairfield County). The one witnessing the 1807 record is Jesse DANIEL, born about 1781, son of William of Edgefield and brother of Martha Daniel MARSH.

26 March 1808 John COCKEROFT to Brian MARSH 180a on branches of Mine Creek of Little Saluda River, adjacent lands of TRAVERSE, Little Mine Creek, MARTIN, originally granted to John MOBLEY by Governor Wm. Moultrie 19 February 1791; witnessed by James W. WEATHERFORD, Absalom (x) ROBERTS, Sarah (x) CLARK; signed John COCKEROFT; pvd. 30 March 1808 by James W. WEATHERFORD; Phillip RAIFORD JP; recorded 28 march 1809. (Deed Book 29, p. 381)

Bryant MARSH served as Captain in the South Carolina Militia during the War of 1812. In a pension application by Zebulon BUCKALEW found in "Mary's People--The Buckelews," 1985, by Gerry Green; Privately Published by Words from The Woods, Nursery, TX, p. 234. Zebulon was 88 years old when he applied for a War of 1812 pension. In it he stated that he had enlisted at Edgefield, South Carolina Courthouse at the outbreak of war, wasn't connected to a regiment, but was in readiness to defend Fort Buford until his discharge in early 1815. Another source says he served in Captain Bryant MARSH's company under Col. Samuel MAY, having volunteered in either Jan. or Feb. 1813.

On August 16, 1813, John, James, and Jesse DANIEL and Bryan MARSH released their claim in the real estate given to Phillip RAIFORD, husband of Elizabeth DANIEL, by the will of her father, William DANIEL.

The 1820 Census for Edgefield County, South Carolina lists Bryant MARSH. His household includes two males under 10 (Stephen and Edmund), one male 10-16 (Bryant), one male 16-18, no male 16-26, one male 26-45 (Capt. Bryant MARSH), no males 45 and above; two females under 10 (Martha and Julia), no females 10-16, one female 16-26 (Catherine), one female 26-45 (Martha Daniel MARSH), and no females 45 and above. (1820 South Carolina Edgefield No TWP Listed; Series: M33 Roll: 118 Page: 199)

Between 1820 and 1830, Bryant, Martha, and their family migrated to Wilcox County, Alabama where he obtained a large plantation. In Deed Book A - p. 155 is an Indenture, Robert Ransome of Clarke County. Alabama and Bryant Marsh of Wilcox County for 159.86 acres for $270.00, dated 8 Feb 1828. (Linda Marsh)

The Wilcox County, Alabama 1830 census entry for Bryant MARSH are 11111001-00100001 as listed on page 187. Among other names on this census are neighbors Benjamin SAVEAGE, William H. SADREDGE?, and Mrs. Lucy BELL.

A "Donation of slaves from Bryan MARSH to Juliet E. PEARSON December 6th, 1844" is recorded in DeSoto Parish, Louisiana records certified by Parish Judge James WELSH on 11 June 1844. Subscribing witnesses were John A. GAMBLE and Stephen MARSH. Benjamin Waller PEARSON, Juliet's husband, accepted the donation in her behalf. The slaves were not named on the portion of the document available. It appears that the slaves were donated by Juliet's father in Alabama and transported to Louisiana by her brother Stephen and John GAMBLE.

As listed in the U.S. Census, Wilcox County, AL, 11(?) Dec 1850 : "897 Bryan MARSH, 75 M Farmer 15,000 SC", living with him, "Edmund MARSH 19 M Ala". Bryan's next door neighbor is "898 B. F. (Benjamin Franklin) MARSH 23 M Ala" and wife "Dorothy 18 F Ala".

Bryant MARSH died in October 1851 in Wilcox County, Alabama and is buried in Marsh Cemetery. His tombstone proclaims: "Bryant Marsh, Senior Born 1778 Died Oct 1851 73 yrs old."

The Administration Bond of William D. MARSH and Stephen MARSH for the estate of Bryan MARSH was dated 27 October 1851.

"Have copy of a deed where Bryant MARSH of the "District of Edgefield, South Carolina," and Darius MARSH of Randolph County, North Carolina sell together a tract of land in Randolph that they had received as "heirs of Edmund MARSH." Proves they were sons of Edmund, that they were brothers and that Bryant went to South Carolina before 1815. Document proving Bryant married Martha Daniel in South Carolina. Document wherein Bryan assumes guardianship for two sons of Elisha Bryan in South Carolina, "who was his cousin in blood." This Elisha was the nephew of Catherine Bryant Marsh, another proof that she was Bryant and Darius' mother. Have Catherine King Bryant (remarried Ellis) Ellis' will wherein she names dau. Catherine Marsh, and passes a slave along to Edmund Marsh. Bryan(t) Marsh of Edgefield was born 1775-77 in North Carolina, and died in Wilcox County, Alabama in 1851; was the brother of Darius Marsh, 1772-1841. Have Probate Minutes of Bryant's Wilcox County Will; names all his children therein. He had 2160 acres and "a number of slaves. Have found film of his slave schedule that shows seventy-four slaves according to my count. *All his children are clearly named in his will and in census records, including Benjamin Franklin Marsh." (Linda Marsh)

"The home of Captain Bryant MARSH is now an historical landmark in Saluda county, South Carolina. It is maintained by the Saluda County historical Society. The Marsh-Johnson House-placed on the National Register of Historic Places June 17, 1982-is located in the southwest portion of what is now Saluda County (Old Edgefield District) at the intersection of Fruit Hill Road and Rocky Creek Road, about two miles off Highway 121, that today links Saluda and Johnson. It is architecturally significant as an example of an early upcountry plantation home. The house is built along simple lines, but close inspection reveals exceptional workmanship and detail. The most outstanding exterior feature of the house is the two end chimneys. Each double-hipped chimney is laid in Flemish bond and features glazed headers, as do the massive brick piers under the house. The exterior of the log building is sheeted in beaded weatherboarding. Interior features which indicate fine workmanship include wide beaded flush paneling and a simple chair rail. Two six-foot mantels, although lowered about one foot, remain the focal points of the two downstairs rooms. A brief history of the Marsh-Johnson House states: In 1773 Ogden Cockroft received this land as a Royal Land Grand of 300 acres. Mr. Cockroft sold "…all that plantation or tract of land…" to Bryan Marsh in 1804. The house first appears on the Mills Map of Edgefield District (1825) as a residence of "Capt. B. Marsh". In 1846 the plat of an adjoining plantation shows that the land belonged to Josiah Howell. In 1847 Isaac Johnson of the Old Barnwell District purchased the land from Mr. Howell. The Johnson family kept the property until 1945, at which time John Henry Hazel bought the house and 225 acres. The house was deeded to Virginia Trotter Witt, granddaughter of John Henry Hazel, along with 62 acres in 1978. Ms. Witt donated the house and one acre to the Saluda County Historical Society in 1990." Copyright © 2000 - 2004 - Saluda County Historical Society, All rights reserved.

Five and a half years later in Edgefield County on 17 Jun 1819, Mary took Jeremiah HATCHER as her second husband. Jeremiah was a Revolutionary War soldier and the Sheriff of Edgefield County. He and Mary had three children: Richard Johnson HATCHER, born 5 May 1820 in Edgefield; Mary A. Daniel HATCHER, born 10 July 1822; and Catherine Amelia HATCHER, born 7 Dec 1826. Mary was again widowed with young children when Jeremiah died in 1827.
(NOTE! Some have written that Mary DANIEL married Daniel HATCHER. NOT TRUE! Daniel HATCHER was a corruption of the surnames of Mary's two husbands. No one named Daniel HATCHER was involved in this relationship. Robert Louis Daniell)

Information from the book Edgefield County South Carolina Records, page 53, which mention some of William and Lucretia Bell DANIEL's children in an excerpt lists Mary DANIEL twice, the second entry notes that William Washington and Martha S. Washington are children of Mary DANIEL. These are two different women named Mary DANIEL; the first is Mary, William and Lucretia Bell DANIEL's daughter, who married Josiah L.; the second is Mary "Polly" Hill DANIEL, wife of James DANIEL (son of William and Lucretia Bell DANIEL), and the mother of William Washington and Martha Sarah. he comment that William W. and Martha S. were entitled to property from their grandmother "Mrs. BROOKS" confirms that Lucretia Bell DANIEL, who died in 1822, had remarried to Col. Zachariah Smith BROOKS sometime after William DANIEL died in 1807.

Mary Daniel HATCHER moved to Butler County, Alabama where an 1838 Land record in Butler Co., AL shows her with 141 acres.

W. F. [William Francis] DANIEL, Mary's son, witnessed the will of Major James HATCHER, a first cousin of her deceased husband Jeremiah, in Dallas County, Alabama in 1838.

Mary owned 46 slaves.

Mary HATCHER is in the 1840 Wilcox County, Alabama census, Roll M704_16, p 308 "Mrs HATCHER, 1M 15-20, 1M 30-40, 1F 10-15, 1F 15-20, 1F 50-60" This accurately portrays her family, Richard J. HATCHER, 20; William Francis DANIEL, 29; Catherine Amelia HATCHER, 14; Mary A. Daniel HATCHER, 18; and Mary HATCHER, 52. Mary had a number of cousins and a sister, Martha Daniel MARSH, also living in Wilcox County at this time.

In October 1850 she was living in Carlowville, Dallas County, Alabama in the home of her son R. J. HATCHER.

Soon after the 1850 census, Mary and her family had moved to Freestone County, Texas, Mary HATCHER is in the household of her son William Francis DANIEL, who lives next door to her other son, Richard J. HATCHER, a dentist.

On the 1860 Freestone County, Texas Tax Roll, Mrs. Mary Hatcher By W. F. Daniel is listed as owning five negroes valued at $2000 paying $2.50 State Tax and $1.67 County Tax.

Mary died on 1 September 1861 in Freestone County, Texas, at age 73. In her Last Will & Testament, dated Feb 5, 1858, Mary bequeathed "to my son Wm F DANIEL, my negro man, Riley, a blacksmith......." [History of Freestone County, Texas, Volume I, p. 401.]

Mary married Josiah L. DANIEL, son of William O'DANIEL II and UNKNOWN, on 17 Nov 1808. Josiah was born on 22 May 1776 in Kershaw County, South Carolina and died on 20 Dec 1813 in Edgefield District, South Carolina at age 37. Other names for Josiah were Josiah L. DANIELL and Josiah L. O'DANIEL.

General Notes: 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.

Jeremiah HATCHER married Mary DANIEL, widow of Josiah L. DANIEL, on 17 Jun 1819 in Edgefield, South Carolina, becoming the step-father of William Francis DANIEL who was almost 8 years old.
NOTE: Misinformation previously posted was corrected on 17 Nov 2004: The original information found by this compiler stated that James HATCHER married Mary DANIEL; this has proven to be false. The webpage, "Descendants of William Hatcher, 1613-1680", (Contact, Nel Hatcher) at Rootsweb.com provides convincing information on both James HATCHER's marriage to Martha TATE and Jeremiah's marriage to Mary DANIEL. Mary's son, W. F. DANIEL, did witness James HATCHER's will of 1838 in Dallas County, Alabama.

1820 U.S. Census, South Carolina, Edgefield District, No Twp; Series: M33 Roll: 118 Page: 176: Jeremiah HATCHER: 2M 0-10 [William Francis DANIEL, 9, and Richard J. HATCHER, less than a year], 1M 45+ [Jeremiah, 56]; 1F 26-45 [Mary, 32]; 25 slaves.

Jeremiah was a principal or witness in numerous records of Edgefield County. For example: Deed Book 29, p 513. 13 April 1809, John Arledridge to Jeremiah HATCHER, 50 acres on Turkey Creek, waters of Stephens Creek. Witnesses: James Coats, John Aledge. Signed: John Arledge. James Coats' hath sworn that he saw John Aldridg together with himself as witness on 6 Nov 1809. Recorded 6 Nov 1809, and Land Description Book 35, p. 283. 07 December 1818, Sheriff Jeremiah HATCHER to John MORNING 286 acres on Bog Branch which John WALKER had at time of death.

Jeremiah died in Edgefield, South Carolina on 31 January 1827. The deeding of Jeremiah's land to his widow, Mary HATCHER, is recorded in Deed Book 42, p 348: Dated April 7, 1827: unto Mary HATCHER of Edgefield Co. SC 665 acres and 415 acres land of Jeremiah HATCHER , now deceased.


Children from this marriage were:

+ 248 M    i. Pvt. Richard Johnson HATCHER, Sr., C.S.A. 49 was born on 5 May 1820 in Edgefield County, South Carolina49 and died on 14 Sep 1895 in Callahan County, Texas at age 75.

+ 249 F    ii. Mary Ann Daniel HATCHER 185,186 was born on 10 Jul 1822 in South Carolina, died on 15 Dec 1910 in Freestone County, Texas at age 88, and was buried in Fairfield Cemetery.

+ 250 F    iii. Catherine Amelia HATCHER was born on 7 Dec 1826 in Edgefield County, South Carolina, died on 19 Dec 1844 in Wilcox County, Alabama at age 18, and was buried in Camden Cemetery.

General Notes: Stephen DANIEL, born between 1790 and 1800, is the youngest child of William and Lucretia Bell DANIEL of Edgefield, South Carolina. From his father's Will: "To my beloved son Stephen Daniel I give and bequeath my land where I now live after the death of his mother including all the land lying on both sides of Mine Creek containing two thousand acres more or less....I desire that my wife educate my sons William & Stephen DANIEL out of her money. I appoint Phillip RAFORD & my sons Jesse and James DANIEL as executors. wit: Mumford PERRYMAN, John PERMENTER & Sally MOBLEY..." Signed: William DANIEL. Proved by the oath of John PERMENTER this 6 May 1807 & at the same time qualified Philip RAFORD, Jesse & James DANIEL as executors & recorded the 11 May 1807".

Steven is said to have married Matilda BOND, daughter of John Pearson BOND and Abigail Sarah FAIRCHILD and granddaughter of Thomas BOND and Mary Ann PEARSON.

MARRIAGE CONFLICT! Matilda Bond married Stephen DANIEL [son of William DANIEL and Lucretia BELL of Edgefield County, South Carolina] per Franklin Farmer in Known Descendants of Elias (WREYFORD) RAIFORD.
"Matilda, married Joseph DANIEL." per Batesburg-Leesville Area History, p. 33, compiled by the Chamber of Commerce. [No records yet found in South Carolina for a Joseph DANIEL married to a Matilda. RLD]

This compiler believes the Stephen DANIEL who died between 16 December 1839 and 6 March 1840 in Chambers County, Alabama is the son of William and Lucretia DANIEL of Edgefield District. Stephen left a widow, Matilda H. DANIEL and seven children. Descendants of their son, Stephen Augustus DANIEL of Freestone County, Texas, maintain that his father was from Edgefield County, South Carolina. In addition to their published family tradition, this belief is supported by circumstantial records:
a. The 1820 census of Edgefield District, Stephen's household consists of himself, age 20-30, and a female, 16-26, no children. Matilda was born 2 June 1804.
b. Stephen DANIEL administered the estate of James F. BOND in 1823 in Edgefield District, South Carolina.
c. Stephen's older brother, Jesse DANIEL married Matilda's older sister, Martha Sarah BOND.
d. Their three eldest children, Jesse, Emeline, and Stephen Augustus match the age ranges for Stephen's children in the 1830 census of Edgefield County, South Carolina and match the age ranges for his widow Matilda H. DANIEL's children in the 1840 census of Chambers County, Alabama.
e. Stephen's move from South Carolina to Chambers County, Alabama between 1834 and 1836. He died there between 16 December 1839 and 6 March 1840.
f. Matilda H.'s age, 45, and her birth in South Carolina as in the 1850 census of Vicksburg, Warren County, Mississippi. Later censuses for their children show both parents were born in South Carolina.
g. Stephen Augustus DANIEL moved to Freestone County, Texas soon after 1865 and was closely associated there with the family of his aunt, William and Lucretia's daughter, Mary Daniel HATCHER and his first cousins, William Francis DANIEL and Mary A. Daniel HATCHER, wife of John Washington BLACKMON.

A deed in Edgefield County dated 13 December 1817 shows Peter HERRIN to John HERRIN where John HERRIN bought 400 acres of land adj. to Stephen DANIEL.

Stephen DANIEL married Matilda BOND before the 1820 census.

MARRIAGE CONFLICT!
Matilda married Stephen DANIEL [son of William DANIEL and Lucretia BELL of Edgefield County, South Carolina] per Franklin Farmer in his "Known Descendants of Elias (WREYFORD) RAIFORD."
"Matilda, married Joseph DANIEL." per "Batesburg-Leesville Area History", p. 33, published by the Chamber of Commerce. [No records yet found in South Carolina for Joseph DANIEL indicate a wife, Matilda. RLD]

Matilda H. DANIEL of Chambers County, Alabama in 1840 is believed by this compiler to be the widow of Stephen DANIEL, son of William DANIEL and Lucretia BELL of Edgefield District, South Carolina. This assignment is based on published family tradition among the descendants of Stephen and Matlida's son, Stephen Augustus DANIEL of Freestone County, Texas, that his father was from Edgefield County, South Carolina and supported by:
a. The 1820 census of Edgefield District, Stephen's household consists of himself, age 20-30, and a female, 16-26, no children.
b. Matilda's sister Martha Sarah BOND married Jesse DANIEL, Stephen's brother.
c. Stephen DANIEL had administered the estate of James F. BOND in 1823 in Edgefield District, South Carolina.

Matilda and her husband moved from SC to AL about 1835, between the births of their daughters Martha, about 1834 in SC, and Catherine, about 1836 in Alabama.

"Matilda, now Mrs. DANIEL" is named in the appellate court decision of a case "decided by his Honor Chancellor JOHNSTON, at Edgefield, June 1836, and upon appeal, his decree was affirmed in May, 1837." (reported in Dudley's Eq. Rep. p. 71) 1843 South Carolina Equity Court case, "Jonathan M. HILL and wife vs. Henry H. HILL and John BATES, administrators." Matilda's sister Lucinda and husband Jonathan M. HILL, residents of Alabama, sued the estate administrators of her brothers, Felix Paddon BOND and Thomas Stanmore HILL, over the distributions of slaves deeded to them by her father.

Matilda DANIEL presented Stephen's Will, dated 16 December 1839, in Court in Troup County, Georgia, in the March 1840 session. It was and recorded on 6 March 1840. Stephen named her executrix and named their son Jesse executor, as soon as he came of age. It showed his home to have been in Lafayette, Alabama and his plantation to have been in Troup County.

Matilda's sons, "Jesse B.", 26, and Stephen A., 21, both born in SC, reside in next door Hinds County, Mississippi. Stephen was living in Jesse's home.
Matilda has not been found in records after 1850.

In 1860, three of her children, Americus C., Martha E., and Adeline M. DANIEL reside in Raymond, Hinds County, Mississippi. Each has a personal estate of $4000. Jesse P. and Stephen Augustus are in McLennan County, Texas with estates in excess of that amount. Matilda Matilda is presumed died before 1860 and to be the source of the children's personal estates..

In 1870, Martha E. and Adeline M. reside with their brother Stephen Augustus in Freestone County, Texas.

50. Catherine DANIEL (William8, John, RW-PS-VA2, William I1) was born about 1791 in Fairfield County, South Carolina and died in 1856 about age 65.

General Notes: 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.

Catherine married Llewellyn Williamson THREEWITS, son of Llewellin THREEWITS, RS-SC 192 and Eleanor FITZPATRICK, in Feb 1810 in South Carolina. Llewellyn was born about 1789 and died in 1814 in Edgefield District, South Carolina about age 25.

General Notes: According to the court deposition below, Llewellin Williamson THREEWITS was born in 1789. In the 1790 South Carolina Census for Orangeburgh, North District, #383, Llewellin THREEWITS is listed with 4 males over 16, 1 male under 16, 3 females and 17 slaves. This appears to be his father's household, with Llewellin Williamson being the male under 16. John THREEWITS is listed on the same page with 2 males over 16, 1 female and 18 slaves.
Llewellyn W. THREEWITS married Catherine DANIEL, daughter of William DANIEL and Lucretia BELL. Edgefield County, South Carolina Records indicate he is of Lexington District and listed on the Richland Equity Roll 71. 1811.

Shows Llewellan THREEWITS, the elder, died in the summer of 1796. Shows: Llewellen Williamson THREEWITS - m- a sister of ______DANIEL. Llewellen a drunkard, separated from wife.
"Llewelyn THREWITZ was living with his mother at the time of his death, he and his wife having separated, and is buried in the old THREWITZ burying ground near Columbia. He was the husband of Catherine DANIEL, daughter of William DANIEL, Sr., and they had three children, namely: Eleanor Fitzpatrick THREWITZ, born in 1810, was reared and educated by her grandmother, who resided in Columbia, and for whom she was named. She married Dr. ("William Daniel" RLD) MARSH, moved to Ala., and later Miss., where she died, leaving a small son, who also died when very young. John Llewelyn THREWITZ, 2nd child of Llewelyn and Catherine, was born, July 5, 1811; died Oct. 17, 1834. He is buried near Edgefield, and a tombstone marks his grave; Elizabeth Juliet THREWITZ, the youngest child, was born Mar. 5, 1812 and died July 14, 1898." (Mrs. Sallie Lou Watson Strother) (Note the manner in which THREEWITS is spelled here. RLD) "As to the spelling of the name, I have nine autographs of the old major and he spells it THREEWITS every time. I have two of Llewellin and he used the same spelling, and that spelling is used generally in documents and contemporary newspapers." A. S. Salley Jr.
From a letter by Mr. A. S. Salley Jr., Columbia, S.C. to the Editor of The State newspaper published Nov./Dec. 1927, entitled: Secretary of Historical Commission Cites Records in His Office as Events in Threewits Family. "Mrs. Strother will also observe that Chancellor DeSaussure refers to a marriage bond executed by Llewellen W. THREEWITS October 20, 1813. That bond is recorded in my office. By it he deeded property in trust for the benefit of his wife to Jesse DANIEL, her brother, and Joel ADAMS, Jr. This same Llewellen Williamson THREEWITS had on January 3, 1810, filed in Equity a "Bill to Account' against John and Eleanor Thomas, "Humbly complaining sheweth unto your Honors your orator Llewellen Williamson THREWITS of Lexington District and State aforesaid that he is the son and only child of Llewellen THREEWITS late of the said District and State Deceased and that your Orators and Father died about fourteen years since leaving a widow (Eleanor by name) your orators mother".... "that his Sd. Father departed this life when your orator was very young".... "that about the year eighteen hundred the said Eleanor ye. orators mother intermarried with a certain John THOMAS."... "that having lately arrived at the age of twenty one years" he asks for an accounting. He secured possession of his property and in February, 1810, married Catherine DANIEL, and on the 24th of June, 1811, Llewellin W. THREEWITS and wife filed a "Bill of Relief" in Equity against John DANIEL wherein they themselves "your orator Llewe1lyn THREEWITS and your oratrix Catherine THREEWITS of the District of Lexington" and speech of "William DANIEL late of the district of Edgefield in the State aforesaid father of your oratrix'.
Richland Co Bills 71, filed 24 Jan 1811-Llewellan THREEWITS and wife, Catherine of Lexington dist. -vs- John DANIEL -alleges: William DANIEL, late of Edgefield District owned 1000 acres in Fairfield District on Broad River. Left will. Apt'd John DANIEL, James DANIEL and Philip RAIFORD of District of Edgefield, Exor's. Devised to daughters, Catherine (oratrix) and Mary DANIEL, son. John."
Dates of birth show that Llewellan and Catherine had three children between 1810 and 1812. Eleanor Fitzpatrick was born in 1810, and a second child, John Llewellen, was born July 5, 1811, only eight months later, March 3 1812, the third child, Elizabeth Juliet was born.
NOTE: There is controversy about this family and its ties to Emily GEIGER, said to be a heroine of the Revolutionary War, which may be affecting both names of individuals and dates in this family. The compiler takes no position on the controversy, trying only to use documented facts. The contentions are addressed at http://sciway3.net/clark/revolutionarywar/geigeroutline.html. What is certain, is that Llewellin Williamson THREEWITS married Catherine DANIEL.


Children from this marriage were:

+ 258 F    i. Eleanor Fitzpatrick THREEWITS was born in 1810179 and died in Mississippi.

+ 259 M    ii. John Llewellyn THREEWITS was born on 5 Jul 1811 and died on 17 Oct 1834 at age 23.

Catherine next married John BELL, son of Benjamin BELL, Jr., after 1814. John was born on 19 Aug 1773 and died on 14 Oct 1858 at age 85.

51. Major William Furman DANIEL 52 (William8, John, RW-PS-VA2, William I1) was born on 21 Jan 1794 in Edgefield County, South Carolina,53 died on 14 Oct 1870 in Edgefield County, South Carolina at age 76, and was buried in Red Bank Baptist Church Cemetery, Saluda County, South Carolina.

General Notes: William was named in the 1816 Will of his brother, James DANIEL. William witnessed the 1813 will of Josiah L. DANIEL of Edgefield County, South Carolina, (Will Book 2, p 602a), who was the son of William O'DANIEL, will 1796 Kershaw County, South Carolina (Volume 1, Will Book C, 1770-1841, p 56 and 57).

This may or may not be William Furman, about age 36, the son of William and Lucretia Bell DANIEL. If he, the other individuals in this household are undetermined.

William DANIEL and Winnefred Vardell Simkins MOBLEY married on 23 Feb 1832.

William married Winifred Vardell Simkins MOBLEY,195 daughter of Dr. John Richard MOBLEY, Sr. 196 and Lucretia SIMKINS,196 on 23 Feb 1832. Winifred was born on 13 Dec 1810 in Burnett's Creek, South Carolina,53 died on 7 Nov 1867 in Edgefield County, South Carolina at age 56, and was buried in Red Bank Baptist Church Cemetery, Saluda County, South Carolina.

General Notes: Winifred "Winnie" Simkins MOBLEY was born 13 Dec 1810 in the Burnett's Creek settlement, South Carolina. She was the daughter of Dr. John Richard Mobley and Lucretia Simkins. Winifred is also found as Winifred Vardell MOBLEY in some records. She was named in honor of her grandmother, Winifred VARDELL. Her mother was Lucretia SIMKINS, wife of John MOBLEY. It is easy to see how both middle names may have been used, either as "Winifred Vardell" being given or "Winifred Simkins" as first name and mother's maiden name.

Winifred married Major William Furman DANIEL. They had six children, William Lowndes, John Furman, James Madison, Emma Lucretia, Harriett Elizabeth and Mary Louisa.

Winifred died 7 November 1867 in Edgefield County, South Carolina. She and William are buried in Red Bank Baptist Church Cemetery, Saluda County, South Carolina. A picture of their shared headstone is on Find A Grave Memorial# 58200663:

Obituary
"BLAKENEY - On Saturday, 25th instant, Mrs. Mary BLAKENEY, age 83 years widow of the late Abel BLAKENEY, Sr., of Baltimore, and daughter of John DANIELS [sic] late of Alexandria, Va. Her funeral will take place this (Monday) afternoon, 27th instant, at two, o'clock from the residence of Mr, Richard LETSHEAR, at Woodbury, Baltimore County, Md."

Mary married Pvt. Abel BLAKENEY, Sr., RW-CT,54 son of Jotham BLAKESLEE 54 and Hannah TODD, on 17 Mar 1795 in Georgetown, District of Columbia.54 Abel was born on 10 Jun 1766 in New Haven County, Connecticut and died on 10 Nov 1837 in Baltimore County, Maryland54 at age 71. Another name for Abel was Able BLAKESLE.54

General Notes: "Abel Blakeney did come from Connecticut shortly after his father died (1792-1793). Two of his brothers, Enos and Jared, moved to NY, just down the road. I do not know what brought Abel to Virginia and the District of Columbia....he was active in the Free Masons and their headquarters was in Alexandria." [Spencer Hunt]

Abel married Mary O'DANIEL on 17 March 1795 in Georgetown, District of Columbia. Mary was the daughter of John O'DANIEL [Jr.] and Anne CLARKE and was a granddaughter of John O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia. In her grandfather's Will of 1798, she is named as Mary BRAKLEY.

Able BLAKENEY was a carpenter. Among accts paid from Mary's grandfather's estate is: "Paid BLAKENEY for coffin... 7 pds 10 shillings." Abel Blakeney made two purchases at John O'DANIEL's estate sale, Stillyards for 6 shillings and "5 Bls of corn" for 3 pounds 17 shillings, 6 pence.

In a singular honor in December 1799, Abel BLAKENEY, Mason, was chosen to build the coffin for George WASHINGTON, his fellow Mason. A short biography of Albert BLAKENEY in Genealogy and Biography of the Leading Families of Baltimore County, Maryland contains this comment: "The grandfather of the subject of this sketch was Abel BLAKENEY, a mechanic, who made the coffin in which General WASHINGTON was buried."

The 1808 Census of Inhabitants of the Third Ward of Alexandria County, Virginia, page 20A, lists: "Abel Blakeney Carpenter Geo. Simms, 2 7" Able and George are the 2 white males above 16. Seven other white persons are with them, ostensibly, Abel's wife Mary and their six children born before 1808. Listed next to Abel is "Geo. Deneale C.C.D. Alexa. Hugh Deneale, 2 7."

53. James O'DANIEL 6 (John9, John, RW-PS-VA2, William I1) was born in 1779 in Virginia. Another name for James was James DANIEL.

General Notes: 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

54. Daniel TALBOTT (Mary O'DANIEL10, John, RW-PS-VA2, William I1) was born on 25 Oct 1779 in Spotsylvania Co., Virginia and died on 11 Nov 1862 in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky at age 83.

General Notes: 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)

Daniel married Elizabeth PARIS, daughter of Moses PARIS, on 2 May 1798 in Clark County, Kentucky. Elizabeth was born on 16 Dec 1779 and died on 7 Apr 1825 at age 45.

Daniel next married Lucy M. SMITH on 15 Sep 1825. Lucy was born in 1805 in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, died on 8 Nov 1875 in Jefferson County, Kentucky at age 70, and was buried in Cave Hill Cemetery.

General Notes: Lucy M. SMITH was born in Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania County,Virginia in 1805. I've seen her grave in Cave Hill Cemetery, but it doesn't mention anything else.

Lucy died in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky.


The child from this marriage was:

+ 277 F    i. Amanda Malvina TALBOTT was born on 18 Jul 1833 in Clark County, Indiana and died on 18 Oct 1889 in Jefferson County, Kentucky at age 56.

55. Elizabeth TALBOTT (Mary O'DANIEL10, John, RW-PS-VA2, William I1) was born about 1781 in Fairfax County, Virginia and died in 1810 in Kentucky about age 29.

General Notes: Elizabeth TALBOTT married a CARRINGTON, and died before her father, Samuel TALBOTT. He named her in his 16 August 1824 LW&T: "I give unto my dec'd daughter Elizabeth Carrington's two youngest children $1 each."

"Elizabeth TALBOTT married Jesse Benedict CARRINGTON on September 7, 1802. This is according to Pioneer Families of Lewis County, Kentucky. They had two known children, Timothy and John Talbott CARRINGTON. Elizabeth died in 1810..." and Jesse married Margaret Esham on November 12, 1812 in Lewis County. Jesse was the first school teacher in Lewis County." (http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyclark3/family/fr018-talbott.htm)

Elizabeth married Jesse Benedict CARRINGTON on 7 Sep 1802. Jesse was born circa 1780.

Children from this marriage were:

+ 278 M    i. Timothy CARRINGTON was born about 1804.

+ 279 M    ii. John Talbott CARRINGTON was born about 1807.

56. William TALBOTT (Mary O'DANIEL10, John, RW-PS-VA2, William I1) was born in May 1784 in Clark County, Kentucky and died on 19 Jul 1840 in Bourbon County, Kentucky at age 56.

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

"William TALBOTT was born in May 1784, according to information provided by David L. Talbott Sr.; and married Anna MILLER. He died on July 19, 1840, in Bourbon County." (http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyclark3/family/fr018-talbott.htm)

William married Anna MILLER. Anna was born circa 1786.

57. Nancy TALBOTT (Mary O'DANIEL10, John, RW-PS-VA2, William I1) was born about 1789 in Clark County, Kentucky and died before 16 Aug 1824 in Todd County, Kentucky.

Nancy married William TINSLEY. She died between 1821 and 16 August 1824, leaving William with four children, the oldest 9 and the youngest 3.

Nancy married William TINSLEY, son of Ransom TINSLEY and Sarah Elizabeth "Sally" FOSTER, on 14 Aug 1814 in Clark County, Kentucky. William was born on 1 Mar 1789 in 96 District, South Carolina and died on 11 Aug 1841 in Todd County, Kentucky at age 52.

General Notes: "Nancy TALBOTT married William TINSLEY on August 19, 1814, in Clark County. Samuel TALBOTT signed the surety. They settled in Todd County, and Nancy died after her father wrote his will in August 1824, but before September 8, 1825, for that is when William married Frances WILLIS. He later married Lucy BRONAUGH on October 5, 1829, in Christian County." (http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyclark3/family/fr018-talbott.htm)

Contrary to the above, Samuel TALBOTT's Will of 16 August 1824 mentions Nancy TINSLEY, but says she is deceased.

Benjamin married Mary GRIMES, daughter of Charles GRIMES, before 1824.

General Notes: "Benjamin TALBOTT is said to have married Mary Grimes CLAY." (http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyclark3/family/fr018-talbott.htm) This may indicate that Mary was the widow CLAY when she married Benjamin TALBOTT.


The child from this marriage was:

Marriage Notes: Henry May married Sarah M.. Gilmore on 25 April 1825 in Greene County, Alabama. ["Alabama, Marriages, 1816-1957," index, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FQKV-S3X : accessed 26 Aug 2013), Henry May and Sarah M. Gilmore, 25 Apr 1825.]

71. William TURNER (Margaret O'DANIEL12, John, RW-PS-VA2, William I1) was born about 1780.

General Notes: 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.

"William Turner was the husband of Charlotte Woodward. Numerous proofs for this can be found in the records of Chester County and adjacent Fairfield County.

Dower renounced by Charlotte Turner on 8 February 1823.

Signed William Turner. Witnesses:Robert D. Ellison, J. Thornton. Dower renounced by Charlotte Turner, wife of William Turner of Chester District 18 February. 1823 before Peter Wylie JQ.
[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.

Jesse Nelson

Jesse Nelson and James Nelson were witnesses to William Thomas Woodward's will dated 14 December 1841 in Fairfield District, South Carolina. This James Nelson is likely not Jesse's brother who appears to have died before 1823 per the will of Jesse's sister Ann Nelson. He may have been the son of Thomas Nelson of Fairfield

General Notes: Nathan HALBERT, ninth child of Isaac HALBERT and Elizabeth O'Daniel, was born about 1796 in Kentucky and died May 29, 1867 in Coryell County or Williamston County, Texas. He made his home with his parents until he moved away from Lewis County, apparently acting as head of the family in his father's old age and after his death.

Nathan served in the War of 1812 in 1813 in Capt. John Payne's Co., Kentucky. Light Dragoon, Col. Richard M. Johnson. He was one of the 150 volunteers from Gen. Harrison's forces that served as marines in Perry's Fleet at the Battle of Lake Erie, Sep 10, 1813. He was back with his company at the Battle of Thames, Oct 5, when Col. Johnson's Regiment. led an assault on the British and Indians and Col. Johnson was credited with the slaying of the Indian Chief, Tecumseh.

Back at home he aided his brothers, Henry and John, in making salt and running trading boats to New Orleans, engaged in farming with his brother-in-law, Richard BAGBY, was acting Sheriff of Lewis County, 1820-1822. According to family tradition he left Lewis County in 1828 to go to Texas. According to Texas records he did not arrive there until 1834. He may have stopped in Arkansas with his brother, Henry. On one of those trips to New Orleans, he may have met Mary Clementine BOULREICE.

"Nathan married before 1834 Mary Clementine BOULREICE, born about 1815-20 in La., and died Jan 23, 1900, Texas. He had corresponded with his family in Kentucky until just prior to the Civil War and may have died before communication could be reestablished." (William C. Halbert, Sr.)

Extract from Elizabeth Le Noir Jennet's Biographical Directory, p. 94: "Nathan HALBERT came to Texas in 1834, at which time, he was single, so stated in Headright Certificate No. 129, for one-third of a league of land, approx. 1500 acres, issued to him, Jun 8, 1838, by the Board of Land Commissioners for Jefferson Co., Texas. He was commissioned first Judge of the municipality of Jefferson in May 1836. In 1837 he was elected County Tax Collector. In 1841 he was appointed a member of the Traveling Board of Land Commissioners East of the Brazos River. In the Congress, 1842-43, he was a member of the House of Representatives from Jefferson Co., Texas. On Mar 13, 1848, Williamston Co. was created and in the 1850 census Judge HALBERT was listed as a farmer and stock raiser in the new county."

By 1850 Nathan had moved to Milam County, where he lived with his wife, Mary, and eight children, all but one of whom were born in Texas. The census listed HALBERT as a farmer with real property holdings of $8,000. He died before January 7, 1871. BIBLIOGRAPHY: Texas House of Representatives, Biographical Directory of the Texan Conventions and Congresses, 1832-1845 (Austin: Book Exchange, 1941). Robert A. Wooster

No further particulars of Judge HALBERT's life has been found. Papers in the General Land Office, dated Jan 7, 1871, show him to be deceased at that time. Nathan and his family resided in the Texas counties of Jefferson, Munich, Milan, Coryell, Bell, Williamston, and Goliad.

The above has been compiled from research by William C. HALBERT, Sr.'s research papers archived in the Library of Congress, additional information from William C. HALBERT, Jr., and Robert Louis Daniell.

From the HOLBERT HERALD Volume I, Numbers 1/2/3 &4 1981 September, page 19:
Nathan Halbert entered Texas in 1834. He is listed in "The Handbook of Texas: Vol I page 754 and in the "Biographical Directory of the Texas Conventions and congresses 1832-1845" pages 93-94. He lived, worked and owned land in Jefferson County Texas. He and his wife, Mary Clementine, are found in Milam County, Texas in the 1850 Census, with eight children. Nathan Holbert died 29 May 1867 in Coryell County,Texas. He and his wife were not living at the same location. She was in Goliad County,Texas with their minor children, Mary and Henry A. His daughter Elenor C. Mitchell in Goliad County,Texas; son James M. Holbert in Milam County, daughter Elizabeth D. Leatherman in Milam County; daughter Permelia E. Shaw in Falk County, and his grandson Andrew Jackson Holbert in Bell County Texas with his mother, the widow of George Washington, Mary Ann Cates Holbert. Andrew was a minor at this time. Nathan Halbert had owned extensive landin his life. But where in Kentucky had he been born? Was he married before Mary Clementine Boulrese, who was born in Louisiana? Was their first son, George Washington Halbert, the first son of Nathan? George died before his father. In 1959 there was a legal notice concerning part of his land in Bell County Texas. (*wish I could find that article!) During the lifetime of Andrew Jackson Halbert, he and his family lived in and around Bell County Texas including: Prairie Dell, Salado, Chalky Ridge, Temple, Rogers, Holland, and Sparta. In Coryell County they lived in Elijah, Copperas Cove, and Killeen. In Milam County near Devilla, in Runnels County between Winters & Wilmouth. In Tarrant County, in Smithfield,Grapevine and Fort Worth."
Then on page 20 is a pic of Andrew Jackson Halbert Sr & wife Mary Minerva Woods and their large family of 12 children announcing a pending family reunion (in 1981) which would celebrate with the 3 "still living" children, Fannye Halbert Wright, Priscilla Halbert Martin, and Gladys Halbert Beeler. *I think everyone will forgive my spelling of Holbert/Halbert with interchanging "a"'s and "o"s, but inside of these families this was done quite often... I would never intentionally change the way anyone spells their name, so please forgive my errors. Nadine (Posted at: http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/read/HOLBERT/1999-06/0930417921)

On September 03, 2003, Sarah KRON advised that she is descended from Nathan HALBERT. The information she presented has been added to Nathan's descendants.

Who is this Nathan HALBERT? The age is correct for our Nathan above, but he does not live with known family: 1860 U.S. Census, Kentucky, Marion County, Lebanon P O, 2 July 1860; Series: M653 Roll: 385 Page: 586 [Partial]: 329 307 George CRAVENS 30 KY...Nathaniel HALBERT 65 M W Farm hand KY.

Nathan married Mary Clementine BULRIECE 59 in 1833. Mary was born between 1815 and 1820 in Louisiana59 and died on 23 Jan 1900 in a tornado near Sherman, Grayson County, Texas.

General Notes: Mary Clementine BULREICE (also BOULREICE, Boulrece, and other possible spellings) married Nathan HALBERT. Mary was born between 1815 and 1820 in Louisiana, evidenced by her ages in the 1850 and 1880 censuses. Assuming that all the children in the 1850 census are hers, she and Nathan married about 1833.

The ancestry of Mary Clementine is uncertain. This post and other researchers comments that she may have been a "gypsy" or Creole could relate to Mary's being part of the Melungeon people of the early 1800s in Louisiana. More on Melungeons at http://www.whatisamelungeon.webs.com/.
"...the pic of Andrew Jackson HOLBERT also shows a dark skin fellow with dark hair. In answer to your question if I thought a dark skinned wife would have effected political aspirations in Texas in the mid 1800's, the answer would be "no". The "Black Dutch" storey has also be said about my own Great Grandfather, Shade HOLBERT of Tennessee, family. Kentucky was covered up in "Black Dutch", which was a group of folks from the very early 1800's which had a "strange" accent.... it has been theorized that they were the European gypsies that migrated to the U.S. Other courses of studies done in Tennessee were believing that the Black Dutch were mixed white & African Americans. Truth be known, almost anyone not translucent white was often referred to as "Black Dutch".... it gave some people in the Carolina's a great and effective way to get some free land and homes away from other people by putting them on the Trail of Tears to Oklahoma...."

General Notes: "Pamelia HALBERT was born in Lewis County, Kentucky, about 1804. On 11 April 1825, a marriage license was issued to her and James BILDERBACK, both over 21. The marriage record was not returned. Nathan HALBERT, her brother, went security for her. In 1815, Stephen HALBERT bought 160 acres on the little fork of Salt Lick from Henry HALBERT. In 1832, he sold this land to his two brothers-in-law, Richard BAGBY and James BILDERBACK, presumably, the balance of 95 acres. BILDERBACK was a man of prominence and in 1847 was elected to the Legislature and served two years." (William C. Halbert, Sr) William continued, apparently in error, "They had a number of children of which the only one whose name is known was Nathan. They continued to live on Salt Lick farm until Pamelia's death in 1853."

Parmelia HALBERT apparently died soon after the birth of her daughter Parmelia on 20 January 1837 because James BILDERBACK married second Sarah FORD on 18 Jun 1837 per Greg Croxton, BILDERBACK researcher, posting on Rootsweb. Greg states that James' children born after 1837 were by Sarah who is listed with James in the 1850 census of Lewis County, Kentucky.

At a court held Fairfax County the 21st day of June 1830 William S. DANIEL and George GUNNELL acknowledged the bond to the court to be their act or deed and ordered to be recorded Test Wm Moss.
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. DANIEL making petition was guardian over Lewis PRITCHARTT born 1815, a son of Travis PRITCHARTT who died about December 1825. 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)

William married Catherine G. HURST,69 daughter of John HURST 69 and Catherine O'DANIEL,6 on 14 Aug 1834 in Jefferson County, Virginia.256 Catherine was born on 17 Nov 1802, died on 12 Dec 1874 in Jefferson County, West Virginia at age 72, and was buried in Edge Hill Cemetery, Jefferson County, West Virginia.71 Another name for Catherine was Catherine D. DANIELS.70

General Notes: Catherine G. HURST married William Stephen DANIEL who died in 1849. She is listed in the 1850 Census of Jefferson County, West Virginia as Catherine D.(?) DANIEL(S?), 45, with no occupation noted, owning $17,500 worth of land, and having been born in Virginia about 1805. She has her three daughters, Mary (Elizabeth), 13, (Anne) Catherine, 11, and (Frances) Eugenia, 8, living with her. From the census information it appears that Catherine and Eugenia were being called by their middle names. On the same page of this census, the families of James G. HURST, John J. H. GUNNELL, William HURST, and Catherine "D." DANIEL, widow of William Stephen DANIEL, are listed sequentially.
Catherine is buried in Edge Hill Cemetery, her tombstone proclaims "Catherine G. DANIEL, b. 17 Nov., 1802, d. 21 Dec., 1874, wife of Wm. S. & daughter of John Hurst."

At a court held Fairfax County the 21st day of June 1830 William S. DANIEL and George GUNNELL acknowledged the bond to the court to be their act or deed and ordered to be recorded Test Wm Moss.
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. DANIEL making petition was guardian over Lewis PRITCHARTT born 1815, a son of Travis PRITCHARTT who died about December 1825. 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)

102. Jane D. DANIEL 73,74 (William III18, William II3, William I1) was born before 1797 in South Carolina74 and died between 1850 and 7 Mar 1853 in Kershaw County, South Carolina.

General Notes: Jane D. DANIEL was a daughter of William DANIEL (O'DANIEL) and Eleanor MARLOR of Kershaw County, South Carolina. Census records indicate that Jane was probably born between 1790 and 1795. She was likely born before 1795 because in November of 1810, Jane D. DANIEL witnessed a deed of sale between her father and her aunt, Mary WOOD. The 1850 census gives her age as 53.

Jane married Lovick YOUNG soon after 1810. Lovick and Jane's family is enumerated in the 1820 census, in which Jane is 16-26 and appears to have three children under 10, a boy and two girls. There is an unknown male 16-26 in the household, a step-son to Jane? There is enough difference in age between Lovick and Jane that she may have been his second wife. The 1830 census lists Jane as 30-40 and also lists two males 20-30 which could not be her sons, again raising the possibility of stepsons.

On 4 July 1826, L. YOUNG, Jane D. YOUNG, and Eleanor L. YOUNG witnessed the Will of Charles INGRAM who died before 5 November 1827. The Will named his sons Charles and Isbon[?]. In her 1849 Will, Jane named "my daughter Mary Jane INGRUM" and "my grandaughter Sarah Ann INGRUM." Which son did Mary Jane wed?

In his August 25, 1828 LW&T, William DANIEL bequeathed the sum of two hundred Dollars to his daughter Jane D. YOUNG and appointed her husband Lovick as an executor of his estate., along with her brother William H. DANIEL, and brother-in-law John J. COOK.

Jane D. YOUNG is head of household in the 1850 census of Kershaw County, South Carolina. Lovick YOUNG died before 3 September 1849, the date of his widow's LW&T.

Jane married Lorick YOUNG about 1810 in Camden District, South Carolina. Lorick was born between 1770 and 1780 and died before 3 Sep 1849.74 Another name for Lorick was Lovick YOUNG.272

General Notes: Lovick [or Lorick] YOUNG is listed in the 1820, 1830, and 1840 censuses of Kershaw District, South Carolina. His age ranges indicate he was born between 1770 and 1780.

Lovick married Jane DANIEL, probably between 1810 and 1814. Her parents were William DANIEL and Eleanor MARLOR of Kershaw County, South Carolina Records indicate that Jane was probably born between 1790 and 1795. There is enough difference in age between Lovick and Jane that she may have been a second wife. In 1828, William DANIEL named Jane D. YOUNG as his daughter and appointed Lovick as an executor of his estate.

Speculations below about Lovick and Jane's family are from the enumeration in the early censuses. It appears they may have had 13 children.

Lovick and Jane have three children under 10 by 1820, married then before 1815. Jane is too young to be the mother of the unidentified male 16-26 who may be Lovick's son from a previous marriage. Also on this alphabetized page are the households of Alexander, Hugh, Archibald, and William YOUNG.

In 1822, Worley SOWELL of Kershaw District named his wife Penelope SOWELL, executrix, and my friend and neighbor Lorick YOUNG, executor, of his estate. Witnesses were John WEBB, Demsey BLOUNT, and Abraham LAMB.

Are all of these Lovick and Jane's, or a few grandchildren mixed in? The two males under 5 in 1830 should be 2 of the 5 males 10-15.

Lovick YOUNG is presumed to have died before the 1850 census when Jane D. YOUNG is a head of household in Kershaw County, South Carolina. He would have been 70-80 years of age in 1850. Next door are six of their children, age 22 and younger, also named in Jane's Will in 1853, John D., Benjmin F., P. Henry, Serena, James, and Caroline. Who are their other children?

Lovick, sometimes Lorick, YOUNG is found on numerous records, wills and land deeds, in the South Carolina Archives from about 1806. The below are representative:

The following was published August 15, 1854 in the Camden Weekly Journal:

Valuable and Desirable lands for Sale
The subscriber offers for sale that valuable tract of land on Big Lynches Creek, formerly owned by Lovick YOUNG, deceased, lying in Kershaw and Chesterfield Districts, containing between seven and eight thousand acres. The improvements consist of the settlement upon which the deceased resided at the time of death, consisting of a dwelling house, gin house, screw, and all necessary outbuildings, all in good repair. Also, another settlement, with a comfortable dwelling house and necessary outbuildings. There is also on the premises, and convenient to both settlements, a first rate Grist Mill, on a never failing stream. This is conceded to be the most valuable and desirable land on Lynches Creek, and its productiveness is known to be unsurpassed by any other in the county. A further description is unnecessary-purchasers are invited to call and examine for themselves. The land will be sold in a body, or divided to suit purchasers, and the terms made liberal. August 15, 1854 J. D. YOUNG (First appearing Aug. 15, 1854-Oct. 10, 1854. This plantation was called "Lynchwood Plantation" and was purchased by L. W. R. BLAIR.

(Note: J. D. YOUNG in this offer for sale is Lovick's son, John D. YOUNG, named in the 7 March 1849 LW&T of Jane D. YOUNG of Kershaw County. Jane died before 7 March 1853. RLD)

Lovick YOUNG is named as one of the Postmasters for Kershaw District, South Carolina during the period 1789-1861. (Catawba Wateree Messenger, January 1997, probably the Lynchwood Post Office)

Might this be the Lovick YOUNG (birth dates are questionable) who married Jane D. DANIEL? The 1761 date is off from the census dates by about ten years:

From: LOVICK RASBURY (1781 - 1858) AND SOME OF HIS ANCESTORS AND DESCENDANTS, A WAYNE COUNTY, TENNESSEE FAMILY Compiled and edited by IMOGENE RASBURY PARSLEY, 10908 Melton View Lane, Knoxville, Tennessee 37931, Phone (615) 927-6659, 1994, as posted at http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Estates/3071/enlisted/lovick.html)
"The following is all the information I have on the Youngs and Rasberrys. A good deal of it comes from a work by Doris C. Outlaw of Kinston, now deceased I believe, entitled The Croom Family which she compiled in 1955 - 1957. She had access to several family Bibles and other information which was in the possession of my "ancient" cousin Bessie Temple at the time and which has not been seen since the 1950's. ... During her lifetime Bessie shared a great deal with other family members, which is how much of my Taylor information was transmitted to the present.
According to Doris and Bessie, Elizabeth Croom was the daughter of Abel Croom and his wife Elizabeth Hardee. Elizabeth was born sometime between 1735 and 1740 and died on June 29, 1784. She married Lovick Young, the son of William Young and Charlotte Lovick. He died on February 6, 1779. They were the parents of:
1. Jacob Young born 1745, died young.
2. Lydia Young, see below.
3. Daniel Young born March 29, 1756.
4. Lovick Young born February 9, 1761.
5. Abel Croom Young born February 11, 1765, died October 5, 1784.
(These dates and many to follow evidently came from the now lost family Bible.)"

103. Mary D. DANIEL 73 (William III18, William II3, William I1) was born after 1800 in South Carolina.

Mary married John J. COOK before 25 Aug 1828 in Camden District, South Carolina. John was born about 1798 in South Carolina.

General Notes: This deed MAY be for the John J. COOK who married Mary DANIEL of Kershaw , Camden District, South Carolina. Mary's brother John J. DANIEL had moved to Talbot County, Georgia in 1832. Did his sister and family move there as well?

General Notes: Serena's father, William (O')DANIEL, named her in his will. One transcript shows her as "Milberry" S. DANIEL, another as "Milling S. DANIEL".

Camden Journal 27 Sept., 1828 - "Married on Thursday the 16th inst., by the Rev. Mr. DAVIS, Mr. Robert MARTIN of Charleston, to Miss Serena M., daughter of Mr. William DANIEL of this place."

The information on Serena MARTIN's Family was copied from the MARTIN Family Bible by Mrs. Albert SIMONS and was taken from a narrative by Annie Elizabeth MILLER, dated 1934, provided by Lucy GRAY of Pensacola, Florida who posted it to the DANIEL-L@rootsweb.com, January 22, 2003.

M. S. MARTIN is named in the 1861 Census of Charleston, living in a brick home at 12 Charlotte Street in Charleston, South Carolina. She is named as the owner and occupant. This street runs west from Cooper River, next above Calhoun, to Meeting Street. Serena also owns a home in the East Side, Ward 2, numbered 284, occupied by Mrs. Henrietta M. DIBBLE, and another, numbered 286, occupied by Kenifick & Skine. (http://docsouth.unc.edu/imls/census/census.html)

Children from this marriage were:

+ 420 F    i. Ellen Daniel MARTIN 76,276 was born on 19 Aug 1829 in Charleston County, South Carolina, died on 9 Dec 1902 in Charleston County, South Carolina at age 73, and was buried in Magnolia Cemetery, Charleston County, South Carolina.

+ 423 M    iv. Lt. Col. Robert MARTIN, Jr., CSA 278 was born on 12 Feb 1835 in Charleston County, South Carolina,277 died on 24 May 1874 in Richmond County, Georgia279 at age 39, and was buried in Antioch Cemetery, Barnwell County, South Carolina.

+ 424 M    v. Charles Wentworth MARTIN 277 was born on 6 Jan 1837 in Charleston, South Carolina.

+ 425 F    vi. Serena M. MARTIN 277 was born on 23 Dec 1844 in Charleston County, South Carolina, died on 5 May 1925 in Charleston County, South Carolina at age 80, and was buried in Magnolia Cemetery, Charleston County, South Carolina.

105. William H. DANIEL 73 (William III18, William II3, William I1) was born circa 1810 in South Carolina.

General Notes: William H. DANIEL is known from the will of his father, William DANIEL of Kershaw County, South Carolina. William H. was Executor of the Will.

After the death of his father in 1828, many of William's siblings and his mother moved to Lowndes County, Alabama, probably the reason that his father's will was also recorded in Lowndes County as well as Camden District, south Carolina. It is possible that William too may have migrated there.

In Talbot County, Georgia. on 4 Nov 1833, a William DANIEL witnessed a deed for William PARKS, giving land for a church. (Talbot County, GA Deed Book J, p. 110) William's brother, John J., was receiving mail at the Talbotton Post Office before 1834 and married Hulda HILL in Talbot County on 6 March 1834. John moved to Lowndes County, Alabama before 1841.

The following records MIGHT be for this William DANIEL. His purported birth in GA would be questionable, as he is more likely to have been born in SC.

POSSIBLE?

106. John J. DANIEL, CSA 73 (William III18, William II3, William I1) was born about 1810 in South Carolina77 and died before 12 Feb 1880 in Lowndes County, Alabama.78

General Notes: In his father's will, John J. DANIEL received a one third part of William DANIEL's lands on White Oak Creek, and a third share of the proceeds of the sales of his House and Lot on Broad Street in Camden, and also his Pine Lands on Branches of Gum Swamp, equally divided between my three youngest children, John J. DANIEL, Francis S. DANIEL, and Eleanor A. DANIEL.

On February 3, 1832, John executed the following deed: "John J. DANIEL of Kershaw District for $1871 paid by Ellen DANIEL my mother of the town of Columbia, sold to Ellen DANIEL land on waters of White Oak Creek being all land I inherited under my father William DANIEL's Will and has lately been appointed to me in a Court of Equity and known and distinguished by lot No 1 - 399 acres and 1/2, adjacent to Daniel Estate. Wit. Edmond A. POOLE, John J. COOK. (Signed) John J. DANIEL." (Kershaw County Deed Book N, page 155 FF) It is likely that having terminated his interests in South Carolina by this action, John then moved to Talbot County, Georgia.

In "Letters remaining in the Talbotton Post Office 1832-1833 Talbot County, GA", the names, John DANIEL and Miss Hulda HILL, are published in the newspaper dated, 1 July, 1832 William P. McKeen, postmaster. Nearly two years later on March 6, 1834 , John J. DANIEL and Hulda HILL were married in Talbot County, Georgia.

They moved to Lowndes County, Alabama sometime before 1841. Two of their children, Mary Jane and Francis, died there and are buried in Oakview Cemetery. His sister Eleanor A. DANIEL and her husband Edmund POOLE had previously moved there before 1834. John's brother Francis DANIEL also lived in Lowndes County, dying there in 1840. Eleanor "Ellen" Marlor DANIEL, John's mother, had moved to Lowndes County to be with her children after the death of her husband in 1828 and died there in 1842 at about 70 years of age.

In the 1870 U.S. Census for Lowndes County, Alabama, Series: M593 Roll: 25 Page: 398, we find John DANIEL, 59, a farmer in Hayneville. The census says he was born in North Carolina, but earlier records show he was born in South Carolina. His wife, Hulda, 61, born in South Carolina, keeps his house. Living in their home are his son Edmond (Edward), 34, also a farmer, and his wife, Partenia ("Parts"?), 33, with their two boys, Willie, 13, and Peter(?), 3. Mattie, 19, daughter of John and Hulda is there as well. Edmond, his family and Mattie are all born in Alabama, as was a John Birlie(?), 9, also "At home" with them. Willie and John Birlie are the only ones who can read or write. (As listed in the 1870 census, there may be some question as to Willie and Peter being the children of Edmond and Partenia, but because of the age of Hulda, 61, the 1880 census of Jefferson County, Alabama proves Peter to be son of Edward Young DANIEL. RLD)

From 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 will tell you what I know of my mother's family. My mother's 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 one 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 well, pride cost him nothing. He lived in a log house of 4 rooms. He was a sociable and fond of company."

Jessica Sellers Lott contributed this obituary and comment:
"John J. Daniel died in Mt. Willing, Lowndes County. He was a brother-in-law of Gen. A.P Hill* and Judge Joshua Hill of Georgia. He was upwards of 70 years old had lived in Lowndes County about 40 years. He is thought to be a native of Georgia. His only daughter is the wife of Captain Joe Hinson of Lowndes County. (2/12/1880)" [Butler County Alabama Obituaries, Marilyn Davis Barefield] [*At best this may have been family lore, but it not true. Confederate General A. P. HILL was NOT a brother-in law of John J. DANIEL. RLD]
"From this obit we can also assume his wife since Hulda has already died since she is not mentioned. Also, if she were alive she would have known he was from South Carolina and not Georgia. However, since Hulda and John were in Georgia for a time and were married there in Talbot [County], it's easy to see how the Georgia reference was attached. Also, John and Hulda had more than one daughter but perhaps what the obit meant to say was his only LIVING daugther was the wife of Hinson (This we know would be Martha Ellen Daniel Hinson who married Joseph Lemeul Hinson)."

John married Huldah HILL, daughter of Joshua HILL, Sr., R.S. and Nancy Wyatt COLLIER, on 6 Mar 1834 in Talbot County, Georgia. Huldah was born on 15 Feb 1810 in Abbeville District, South Carolina and died before Feb 1880.78

110. Ann [Not Proven] DANIEL (James19, William II3, William I1) was born circa 1785 in South Carolina.

General Notes: CONFLICT!
There are competing claims as to the identity of the wife of Jacob ZEIGLER of Barnwell District, South Carolina. One is that "Ann DANIEL", daughter of "Col. James DANIEL" and Eliza ERWIN of Fairfield County, South Carolina was Jacob's wife. The other is that "Ann PENDARVIS, daughter of Joesph PENDARVIS and Ann SALLEY is Jacob's wife.

Subject: Zeigler - Felder Cemetery & Ann Daniel Zeigler
Date: Sat, 05 Apr 1997 20:21:19 -0800
William W. Miller's E-mail of 18 Oct 1996 quoted 1803 Equity Records concerning Brand Pendavis and the Cuterer Family. It also discusses Jacob and Ann Zeigler, James Daniel, John Robinson and Joseph Pendarvis. The lineage of this Ann Zeigler was not confused by this E-mail, it has been confused for well over a hundred years. I have read all of the tombstones inscriptions in the ZEIGLER/FELDER CEMETERY in Bamberg, SC. I hope to send the list out shortly. One of the tombstones is this Ann Zeigler, and another her husband Jacob. When I release this tombstone list I believe it appropriate to include a note clarifying Ann's lineage, and I hope you all will help with this.
Listed in the first paragraph of subject E-mail are the five children of Joseph and Ann Salley (Robinson, Daniel) Pendarvis as: James, Ursula, William, Elizabeth, and Mary. These are the correct names. They may not be in the proper order. Mary was the last born about 1790. The order of Jacob and Conrad is reversed in the statement, "Elizabeth and Mary wives of Jacob and Conrad." Jacob married Mary and Conrad married Elizabeth. In 1803/4 Jacob married Mary Pendavis (C 1790 -1803/4). Although the mother's name was Anne, I have seen no record of Ann as one of Joseph's and Anne's children. Was there an Ann Pendarvis? Does anyone have a record of her?
Jacob had been going to school and living in Charleston. He came to Bamberg about 1800 at 18 and married Mary Pendavis (not Ann or Elizabeth) about 1803/04 when she was only 14. She had no children as she died shortly after marrying. On 6 JA 1805 widower Jacob, age 22, married MISS ANN DANIEL age about 14. She was born in Fairfield Co., the daughter of Col. James Daniel and Eliza Erwin.
After the death of her mother Ann and her older brother, Nathaniel, came with their father, James, to the Orangeburg area where they are listed in the 1800 Census. James had purchased 7,000 acres of land near Orangeburg as an investment for his daughter Ann. In 1804 he deeded this land to Michael Zeigler, Jacob's father, in a trust for his daughter, Ann. About this time Ann switched from an only child to"one of the pack."
Anne Salley married Joseph Pendarvis and had five children. He died in 1791 and she married John Robinson who already had seven children. He died in 1797 and then, probably shortly after 1800, she married James Daniel with the lone Ann. It would be a packed house with 13 children. I suspect half of them were out and gone by then.
No records show up of any children of John and Anne or James and Anne. She would have been 40 when she married John and 50 when she married James. I could be wrong on this. I have not seen the grave of James Daniel and Anne Salley Daniel. If we could find these graves with tombstones, we may find the grave of Nathaniel, the brother of Ann Daniel Zeigler, and the answers to a lot of questions.
A lot of the above information came from Joseph Steadman's Zeigler book. It shows Jacob's second wife as Ann Daniel. There is a picture in this book of Ann with the proper caption, "Ann Daniel Zeigler." This book was placed in the Carolinana Library in 1995/6. Leon J. Zeigler 's Zeigler Family Genealogy dated 1973 includes this same picture of Ann with the erroneous caption, "ANN PENDARVIS ZEIGLER, 1791 - 1861, daughter of Joseph Pendavis III (C 1752 - 1801) and Anne Salley, daughter of Henry Salley, Jr. and Magdalena Huber." This error is also in the Zeigler and Pendarvis family pages on the Oburg web site.
Well now Gene, you said please correct. Now what do we do? I would suggest we wait two weeks for all those interested to make comment and then revise them as to what we have. Being an engineer I had to make the following chart to try to get all of this straight in my head. I hope to get comments and correction. I am continuing to read likely cemeteries and will probably have more on this later.

Obituary excerpts: "Died, at his residence, in Barnwell District, on the evening of the 8th November, Gen. JAMES D. ERWIN, in the 62d year of his age. In the death of this estimable man the community has sustained an irreparable loss, and to his surviving widow and family a vacuum has been created which can never be filled... Gen. Erwin was a native of South Carolina. At an early period of his life, he was called to represent the District of Barnwell in the Legislature of the State... Retiring from the Legislature, he was elected to the office of Brigadier General. Possessing a taste, however, less congenial with the military than other pursuits of life, he resigned, after a few years, this office, and devoted his attention to agriculture, and became one of the most successful planters of the State. In this department he exhibited uncommon energy, and was rewarded in the accumulation of large wealth... A devoted husband, a fond and generous father, a conscientious and kind master; the influence of his virtues survive him, and remain a blessed legacy to his afflicted family and friends. He had beenfor many years a professor of religion. On the evening of his death, and but a few hours before the summons reached him, he called together, as was his custom, his family, and conducted, with marked spirituality, the devotions of the evening. He retired to bed in the enjoyment of his usual health, and, in less than half an hour from the first symptom of which he complained, he was no more. He felt from the beginning that his situation was a dangerous one, and said to his wife, "I must die." In all the calmness of pious resignation, he gave directions for his burial, and slept sweetly in death. To us left the enduring consolation that he died a Christian... Scarcely had the last sad office been performed, and whilst the tear of affliction still moisten his grave, his youngest daughter, MARTHA, 12 years of age, was called to follow him. She died on the morning of the 19th November, and sleeps in the church yard beside her father.

"1806 May 25 Sarah Francis Francklow": Record of Confirmation for Sarah from St. Matthews Lutheran Church, Orangeburgh, South Carolina. (http://www.mindspring.com/~debard/Confirmations.htm)

"1808 July 19 Thomas Sabb to Sarah Francis Francklow" from the records of St. Matthews Lutheran Church, Marriages by Rev. J. P. Franklow. It appears that Sarah's father officated at her marriage to both Thomas SABB and to James Daniel ERWIN.

"1811 Feb 4 James Daniel Erwin to Sarah Frunier [sic, Frances?] Sabb" from the records of St. Matthews Lutheran Church, Marriages by Rev. J. P. Franklow. Though named as "Sarah Frunier Sabb" in the transcript of this marriage it is likely that "Frunier" may be a misreading of the handwriting for"Frances".

Sarah's father, John Philip FRANCKLOW may have officiated at both of his daughter's marriages.

From The Community Of Erwinton, by Carrie Lee Erwin Kalber, from ALLENDALE ON THE SAVANNAH, by Alexania Easterling Lawton and Minnie Reeves Wilson -
"Any study of South Carolina history should include the community of Erwinton, which has produced many outstanding people: lawyers, doctors, publishers, statesmen, farmers, textile ex-preacher, and many others interested in the welfare of Allendale On The Savannah our country. Among the families who have lived there are MANERs, ERWINs, ROBERTs, DUNCANs, WILLINGHAMs, SAMs, BESTs, BOXes, KILLINGSWORTHs, BRUNSONs, and MARTINs...Although most of these families have left this part of Old Barnwell District (now Allendale County), their children and grandchildren love to return and wander around visiting the sights that were dear to their ancestors...Reverend J. J. Trott, an evangelist of Christian Churches, who lived in Georgia, wrote a news dispatch to The Christian Review, Franklin College, Tenn., dated March 10, 1847, describing his visit to Antioch Christian Church in Erwinton, S. C., and the ERWINs there. Trott wrote "Erwinton, S. C., is a most delightful place. It is not a city nor a town, but something more interesting, a Christian neighborhood, composed of a post office, a male and female academy, a neat and comfortable meeting house, and a congregation of Disciples. Bro. Dr. W. R. ERWIN is a pioneer in the good cause. His brother, Gen. James Daniel ERWIN, was baptized last year at Bethany College, Va. Brother J. S. HAVENER is teacher in the Academy and congregation. Miss BOIDLEY, a Catholic lady, gives lessons in French, Music, Drawing, and Painting....Erwinton also had at that time a Masonic Hall which was the first chartered Masonic Society in South Carolina, and I have been told that the Allendale Masonic Lodge has the Charter. The home of Brother Dr. W. R. ERWIN mentioned by Reverend J. J. TROTT is one of the few remaining ante-bellum homes to be seen today in the neighborhood of Erwinton just off Highway 301 on the old Augusta road. Dr. William Robinson ERWIN and his wife, Julia Caroline Robert ERWIN, built the remaining home after his brick home was destroyed by fire...
Rev. Alexander CAMPBELL had preached at Antioch Christian Church, in present-day Allendale County, in 1838, and had been the guest of Gen. James Daniel ERWIN at Erwinton at that same time."

"Micajah Rice was a land trader in SC and owned and traded land from records dating in the 1780's to this land grant. Then the transactions stop, so I would guess that Micajah died not too long after settling this land. His son Reuben also disappears from the SC land transactions after this transaction. Right Rice migrates to Wilcox, AL and Jesse Rice, whose father Aaron Rice migrated to GA, continues to hang around SC. David Rice, my ancestor, buys all of this land once owned by Micajah Rice (I do not know if there is any connection) and this land stays in the family for generations. Sem Daniel is a witness to this transaction.

General Notes: Cynthia DANIEL was a daughter of David DANIEL and Mary MULDOON. She is named as Cynthia CLINE in her father's Will, 12 May 1832.

Jerri Hall states, "From her father's will, it is not clear whether her eldest child was born before this marriage. Since her parents had all daughters, it is possible that she and her husband agreed to give him the Daniel surname in order to continue the line, as was a custom of the time."

Cynthia, her husband, Charles S. CLINE, and family are in the 1850 Census, South Carolina York County, No Twp Listed; Series: M432 Roll: 860 Page: 165: Charles S. CLINE 46 Farmer 1000 Chester Dist, SC; Cynthia 44 York Dist., SC; Leonora 18 York Dist., SC; DANIEL, James S. 35 Laborer York Dist., SC; CLINE, William B. 17 Laborer York Dist., SC; CLINE, Mary 10 York Dist., SC; CLINE, Charles 7 York Dist., SC.
A number of individuals post that the James S. DANIEL in the home of Charles S. CLINE is Charles' son; however, on the census page, James S. has DANIEL shown as a surname and a restart of the CLINE surname below him.
In 1860, Charles S. CLINE and his wife, Cynthia [DANIEL], live next door to Isaac ALLEN and his wife, Artemisia DANIEL, Cynthia's sister.

Cynthia is buried in Harmony Baptist Church Cemetery, York County, South Carolina. Her grave is indexed as:

General Notes: "My Daughter Artamesia Daniel" is named in the 12 May 1832 last will & testament of David Daniel.

There are two possibilities for Artemisia DANIEL who is the daughter of David and Mary Muldoon DANIEL. Jerri Hall writes: "Her father (or father-in-law?) was David DANIEL. He calls her his daughter in his will, but sometimes that term was also used for widowed daughters in law...I have not been entirely satisfied that Artemisia was married until her later known marriage to Isaac ALLEN." This opens the other possibility that Artemisia was an unwed mother living in her father's household.

Now the questions: Who fathered Artemisia's sons William B., Thomas A., and John L. DANIEL born before 1840? If an Unknown DANIEL, was Artemisia's maiden name DANIEL or something else? More research required.

After the death of David DANIEL, as one of his heirs, Artemisia was involved in two property transactions. On 23 July 1832, Mary Ann DANIEL for "the natural love and affection which I bear unto Reuben DENNIS, John POLK, C S CLINE & Artemisia DANIEL" gives them all her property at her decease. Wit: Joseph FERGUSON, Henry LEE. Recorded 1 October 1832. (Z60). On the same date, Reuben DENNIS, John POLK, C S CLINE & Artemisia DANIEL obligate themselves for a $400 bond, the condition of which is that Mary Ann DANIEL may occupy the 112 acres where she lives during her natural life, the property at the expiration of that time to return to the legatees specified in the will of David DANIEL. If any one of them should forfeit the bond, he is liable to pay it alone. All four signed. Wit: Joseph FERGUSON, Henry LEE. Recorded 27 November 1832. (Z77). Mary Ann DANIEL died about 1839.

Assuming Artemisia was first married to a DANIEL, he probably was deceased by 1840 when Atermasiah (sic) Daniel was listed for the first time as head of household in Chester District.
1840 U.S. Census, South Carolina, Chester County; Series: M704 Roll: 510 Page: 302 lists "Atemesiah DANIEL" who has three boys, one, 0-5, and two 5-10, and one girl 10-15. This is a duplicate of the "Mesiah DANIEL" in York Co. (Explained by Jerri Hall as an anomaly that Mesiah lived on or near the county line and was enumerated in both.)(Note: a comparison of names around "Atemesiah" and "Mesiah" on the two census pages reveal no other duplicate entries. RLD)

1840, York Co., "Mesiah DANIEL", 30-40, with 3 boys: one under 5, one 5-10, and one, 10-15; and one girl 5-10, lives 15 homes away and is named on the same page as J. H. ABERNATHY and "Mrs. DANIEL." She is thought to be Artemisia DANIEL, daughter of David DANIEL and Mary MULDOON. James Harvey ABERNATHY was the father of William Calhoun ABERNATHY who married Mary Emma DANIEL before 1875. Mary Emma was d/o William B. DANIEL and Elizabeth WYLIE, the widow of Henry Fuller WHITE. William B. is s/o Artemisia DANIEL and Unknown. Artemisia is thought to be d/o David and Mary Muldoon DANIEL. She is named in David's Will. Was she a daughter who married another DANIEL or a widowed daughter-in-law? (as asked by Jerri Hall). There are four children in her household: a girl 10-15 years (Helen Alice?); and three boys, presumed to be her sons, two 5-10 years (William & Thomas) and one under 5 years (John). Hellen Alice DANIEL, born about 1827, who married James Harvey ABERNATHY about 1842, is believed to be Artemesia's daughter, 10-15, in this census.

In the 1840 U.S. Census, South Carolina, York County; Series: M704 Roll: 516 Page 319, "Mesiah DANIEL", 30-40, is head of household With her are 3 boys: one under 5, one 5-10, and one, 10-15; and one girl 5-10. She is named on the same page as J. H. ABERNATHY and his next door neighbor, a "Mrs. DANIEL". Mrs. DANIEL, 15 houses away from "Mesiah", is with two males, 15-20, on girl, 15-20, and herself, 50-60.

By the mid-1840's, Artemisia DANIEL had married Isaac A. ALLEN. In the 1850 and 1860 census records, she is listed as his wife with both Daniel and Allen children in the family. Her Allen children were Julia A., Isaac Halcot and Theodore Middleton ALLEN. Their two oldest children died in their late teens. As late as 1870 Middleton ALLEN was still living in the home with his parents, indicating that he may have married after that time." (Jerri Hall)

Artemisia's son, Isaac H. ALLEN is named as "ALLEN, I. H., 1846 - 1864" on the Confederate Monument, Erected by the Neely's Creek Church Cemetery Association, August 22, 1993 (York County, SC).

Artemisia Daniel Allen is buried in Neely's Creek ARP Church Cemetery, Rock Hill, York County, South Carolina. A picture of her headstone is on Find A Grave Memorial# 21475100:

Children from this marriage were:

+ 523 M    i. William B. DANIEL was born on 14 Aug 1830 in Chester District, South Carolina,368 died on 26 Dec 1898 in York County, South Carolina at age 68, and was buried in Neely's Creek Associate Reformed Church Cemetery, York County, South Carolina.

+ 524 M    ii. Thomas A. DANIEL 369 was born about 1835 in York District, South Carolina.

+ 525 M    iii. John L. DANIEL 97 was born about 1840 in York District, South Carolina.

Artemisia next married Isaac Anderson ALLEN 98 about 1829. Isaac was born on 15 May 1819 in Chester County, South Carolina, died on 20 Sep 1895 in York County, South Carolina at age 76, and was buried in Neely's Creek Associate Reformed Church Cemetery, York County, South Carolina.

General Notes: "Isaac ALLEN apparently was a prosperous farmer. In 1860 he owned six slaves. As his two oldest children died during the Civil War period, his only remaining son probably continued to live with his parents after the War to help oversee farming operations.
Some time after the death in late 1884 of Artemisia, his first wife and mother of his children, he married Mary Jane SIMPSON, widow of John R. PATTON, and possibly a neighbor. A late life marriage, they had no children.
In his will dated 13 Nov 1888, he left personal property and provisions for his widow, stating that she should accept $400 but if she did not accept it in lieu of dower, it should go to his granddaughter Mary Henrietta ALLEN; 234A of land in Catawba Township to his grand-daughter; and a $100 note and any personal property already in his possession to his son T. M. ALLEN. The Catawba property was "bounded by the lands of Mrs. Polly RODDEY, Mrs. M. J. ALLEN (his wife), Wm WYLIE, Wm ABERNATHY & John SPENCER". His son and wife were named as Executors. He died about seven years later.
Isaac and Artemisia and their children are buried at Neely's Creek Cemetery. Also Mary Jane ALLEN is buried with her PATTON husband there." (Jerri Hall)

134. William Francis DANIEL 100 (Josiah L.24, William II3, William I1) was born on 25 Aug 1811 in Edgefield County, South Carolina, died on 12 Sep 1872 in Freestone County, Texas at age 61, and was buried in Fryers Springs, Freestone County, Texas. Another name for William was William Francis DANIELL.

General Notes: William Francis DANIEL was born 25 Aug 1811 in Edgefield County, South Carolina, son of Josiah L. and Mary Daniel DANIEL, cousins. His father died two years later. His mother remarried almost six years later to Jeremiah HATCHER, Sheriff of Edgefield. William's half siblings from this marriage were Richard Johnson, Mary A. D., and Catherine Amelia. William' step-father died in 1827.

William, his mother, and the three young HATCHERs migrated to Alabama, and lived in Butler and Dallas counties. About 1838, he married Frances RIDDLE, daughter of Archibald RIDDLE and Elizabeth TATE of Georgia.

In 1838, W. F. DANIEL witnessed the will of James HATCHER in Dallas County, Alabama. James was a brother or first cousin of Jeremiah HATCHER, his deceased step-father. William's wife, Frances RIDDLE, was James' niece through Elizabeth TATE, sister of James' wife, Martha TATE. James was also a guardian of Frances RIDDLE' sister, Permilia. William's half siblings were James' nephews or cousins. Any of these relationships explain why William witnessed James' will. (Dallas County Will Book A, page 142)

William Francis was an Attorney and Land Agent in Wilcox County, Alabama.

140. Levi Daniel EILAND, Sr, J. P. 102,103 (Ann [Possible] DANIEL26, James, RW-SC4, William I1) was born between 1792 and 1795 in Georgia104 and died in 1872 in Covington County, Alabama. Another name for Levi was Levi ISLAND.382

General Notes: Levi Daniel EILAND, son of Absolem EILAND and Ann Nancy DANIEL, is said to have been named for his mother's "favorite and youngest brother, Levi." Considerable evidence strongly suggests Ann's brother was Levi DANIELL who died in 1800 in Hancock County, Georgia. IF TRUE, Ann Nancy was a daughter of James DANIELL of Fairfield County, South Carolina who was James, son of William and Frances O'DANIEL, was born 1721 in Stafford County, Virginia and died 1798 in Hancock County, Georgia.

In the censuses, Levi D. EILAND is age 30-40 in 1830, 40-50 in 1840, 56 in 1850, 67 in 1860, and 75 in 1870, born then between 1792 and 1795 in Georgia.

"Levi Daniel Eiland was a son of Absalom and his wife, Nancy Ann (Daniel). This family moved to Washington Co, GA., around the time Levi was born. Their property later fell in Hancock Co. when it was formed. Levi Daniel Sr. was in AL as early as 1830 according to census reports. It is not known when he lived in Covington Co. nor how long, but at one time he owned a small farm at Bell's Crossing near the eastern border. He apparently lived mostly in the edge of Coffee Co. as he served there as a Justice of the Peace from 1819 to 1850. He also served as the tax collector sometime before the war. Levi was a very successful individual who contributed much to his family and community. He became a farmer, stock-raiser, builder, millwright, and school teacher. When he was in his late 20s and getting his family started, his father gave him several slaves to help with all the different types of work. He took part in the community life and was an active member of the Methodist Church. At his death in 1872, he was buried in a family cemetery near Bullock." (Diane Eiland, http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~eilandfamily/html/fam07075.htm)

Some Eiland researchers believe this family line descended from Absalom Eiland, who was an early settler in North Carolina and Georgia. He or an earlier ancestor immigrated from the country of Wales.
It is believed that Levi Daniel Eiland, born circa 1785, was a son of Absalom and his wife, Nancy Ann (Daniel). This family moved to Washington County, Ga., around the time Levi was born. Their property later fell in Hancock County when it was formed. Other likely children of Absalom and Nancy include Enoch, James, Asa, Daniel, Steven, Nancy and possibly Elizabeth (Eiland) Thompson. There were several others most likely.

141. Elizabeth EILAND (Ann [Possible] DANIEL26, James, RW-SC4, William I1) was born on 9 Nov 1794 in Georgia.

Elizabeth married James THOMPSON.

142. EILAND (Ann [Possible] DANIEL26, James, RW-SC4, William I1) was born circa 1795. Another name for EILAND was Sarah Jane EILAND.

General Notes: There is a question as to the name of Absalom and Ann Daniel EILAND's daughter who married James FELTS. Her name has not been found in records, but James was named as a son-in-law in the will of Absolem Eland, July 26, 1812, Jones Co, Georgia.
1. Virginia, according to Diane EILAND on her website, The Eiland and Caffey Families, at http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=eilandfamily&id=I02428.
2. Possibly Sarah Jane, according to Barbara Hunt, Silver City, New Mexico, who wrote "(believed to have been named Sarah Jane) who died early."

EILAND married James FELTS before 26 Jul 1812.

143. Mary D. TAYLOR (Sarah DANIELL28, James, RW-SC4, William I1) was born about 1773.

General Notes: Mary D. TAYLOR, born about 1773, is named as a daughter of James and Sarah Daniell TAYLOR in an Ancestry.com file. If this date is correct, it is likely this Mary died young because James and Sarah have another daughter Mary born 1 Jun 1779 who married her couisin Thomas TAYLOR.

144. Ensign Jesse TAYLOR (Sarah DANIELL28, James, RW-SC4, William I1) was born on 2 Oct 1774 in Richland County, South Carolina and died before 13 Apr 1804 in Richland County, South Carolina.108

Thomas married Mary TAYLOR, daughter of Capt. James TAYLOR and Sarah DANIELL. Mary and Thomas were first cousins.
Thomas and Mary moved to Caddo Parish, Louisiana "late in life". Mary died there at the home of her daughter Maria Harriet Taylor MARSHALL in 1846.

147. Patience TAYLOR (Sarah DANIELL28, James, RW-SC4, William I1) was born on 4 Oct 1781 in Richland County, South Carolina and died on 12 Apr 1811 at age 29.

General Notes: Patience TAYLOR was the daughter of Capt. James TAYLOR and Sarah DANIELL. Patience is listed as being born on 4 Oct 1781 or 18 Jan 1784 and died 12 Apr 1811. She is tentatively assigned as the wife of John HOWELL. John HOWELL, Jr. was born 1784 in Craven County and died 1825 in Richland District. A family has not been found for him. An abstract of his citation in Will Book H, p. 367, does not name a wife or children, providing only "Son of Mary HOWELL, bro. of Grace HOWELL. Planted Cabin Branch Plantation with them. Furniture at Mill Creek."
Patience's sister, Martha TAYLOR, is tentatively assigned as the first wife of Jesse Malachi HOWELL.
CONFLICTING INFORMATION exists not only on Patience's birth date but also on who was her husband. 18 Jan 1784 is also the date given for the birth of her sister, Martha. Details about these sisters are being shared between them. Both Patience and Martha TAYLOR are said to have been the first wife of Jesse Malachi HOWELL, married circa 1805. Henry L. Hall's THE TAYLOR FAMILY OF RICHLAND COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA AN IMPORTANT PIONEER FAMILY IN THE HISTORY OF COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA: "(35) 6. Patience TAYLOR (18 January 1784-12 April 1811) married John Howell."; however, an Ancestry.com file provides "Patience TAYLOR Born Marriage 1 Spouse Jesse Malachi HOWELL Married [no date]." Edwin L. Green in "A History of Richland County" writes: "Malachi and Martha Epps HOWELL had a son, Jesse Malachi HOWELL, who married Martha, daughter of James TAYLOR, then her niece Martha, the latter surviving him after his death at the beginning of 1835." Other sources say Martha TAYLOR (died 1812) married Jesse Malachi HOWELL (died 1835).
Regardless which, Jesse Malachi HOWELL and his first wife had two children, James Malachi HOWELL, who died young, and Martha Sarah HOWELL, born 12 April 1811, who married William Burney MEANS. Martha Sarah's mother apparently died giving birth to her.
(QUESTION: Are two Patience HOWELLs, each married to a John HOWELL in different time frames, being confused here as well? Carol Busto provided a Descendant Chart on the HOWELL family showing a Patience TAYLOR who married John HOWELL, d. 1777, son of Arthur and Sarah HOWELL. This would NOT be Patience, the daughter of James and Sarah Daniell TAYLOR, who was born after 1780. RLD)
Any assistance on confirming these marriages would be greatly appreciated.

Patience married John HOWELL 390 circa 1800.

148. Martha TAYLOR (Sarah DANIELL28, James, RW-SC4, William I1) was born on 18 Jan 1784 in Richland District, South Carolina and died circa 1811 in Richland District, South Carolina about age 27.

General Notes: Martha TAYLOR, daughter of Capt. James TAYLOR and Sarah DANIELL was born 18 Jan 1784. Martha is tentatively assigned as Jesse Malachi HOWELL's first wife.
CONFLICTING INFORMATION exists about whether Martha or her sister, Patience, married circa 1805 Jesse Malachi HOWELL. Both Martha and Patience TAYLOR are said to have been the first wife of Jesse Malachi HOWELL. Edwin L. Green in "A History of Richland County" writes: "Malachi and Martha Epps HOWELL had a son, Jesse Malachi HOWELL, who married Martha, daughter of James TAYLOR, then her niece Martha, the latter surviving him after his death at the beginning of 1835." Other sources list "Martha TAYLOR (died 1812) married Jesse Malachi HOWELL (died 1835)." An Ancestry.com file provides "Patience TAYLOR Born Marriage 1 Spouse Jesse Malachi HOWELL Married [no date]"; however, Henry L. Hall's THE TAYLOR FAMILY OF RICHLAND COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA AN IMPORTANT PIONEER FAMILY IN THE HISTORY OF COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA states "(35) 6. Patience TAYLOR (18 January 1784-12 April 1811) married John Howell." Patience's birth date is given as both 4 Oct 1781 or 18 Jan 1784 and died 12 Apr 1811. Details about these sisters are being shared between them.
Regardless of which, Jesse Malachi HOWELL and his first wife had two children, James Malachi HOWELL, who died young, and Martha Sarah HOWELL, born 12 April 1811, who married William Burney MEANS. Martha Sarah's mother apparently died giving birth to her.
(QUESTION: Could Martha TAYLOR, sister of Patience, have been the second wife of Jesse Malachi HOWELL? It does not appear so. Edwin L. Green's work, above, states Jesse's second wife, Martha, was the niece of his first wife. Saluda Reese's typed cover page for Jesse Malachi's Will states "2nd Wife Martha (nee HOWELL) HOWELL Died 1851 (She was cousin to her husband)" Martha HOWELL's father, William, had a wife and widow, Mary, maiden name not found. Martha TAYLOR had a sister Mary D., no husband assigned. If it is ever proven that Mary D. TAYLOR married William HOWELL, then Martha HOWELL would be both niece to Martha and Patience TAYLOR, and a first cousin to Jesse Malachi. Current information does not show Martha and Patience to be related to Jesse Malachi other than by marriage. RLD)

Martha married Jesse Malachi HOWELL, Sr.,397 son of Malachi HOWELL and Martha Epps GOODWYN,398,399 circa 1805. Jesse was born about 1775 in Richland County, South Carolina and died in 1835 in Richland District, South Carolina400 about age 60.

Marriage Notes: Based on estimated marriage at about age 18.

General Notes: Jesse Malachi HOWELL, Sr., son of Malachi HOWELL and Martha Epps GOODWYN, was born about 1775 in Craven County, South Carolina. His father died in Feb 1782 when Jesse was about seven. Two months later, his mother remarried to Col. Wade HAMPTON. Two years after this marriage, Jesse's mother died, leaving him an orphan, about nine years of age, in the care of his step-father, Col. HAMPTON. Further records of Jesse's youth have not yet been found.
CONFLICTING INFORMATION is published concerning the marriages of Jesse Malachi HOWELL. Any assistance confirming Jesse Malachi's marriages would be greatly appreciated.
Martha TAYLOR, daughter of Capt. James TAYLOR and Sarah DANIELL, is tentatively assigned as Jesse Malachi's first wife. "Malachi and Martha Epps HOWELL had a son, Jesse Malachi HOWELL, who married Martha, daughter of James TAYLOR, then her niece Martha, the latter surviving him after his death at the beginning of 1835." (Edwin L. Green, "A History of Richland County", p. 47) Jesse and Martha, married circa 1805, and had two children, James Malachi and Martha Sarah as indicated in the record below. Martha died in 1811, the year Martha Sarah was born. Some individuals post that Jesse first married Patience TAYLOR, Martha's sister, and then married Martha, a niece of Patience (and thereby a niece of Patience's sister, Martha). Another posts that Patience married a John HOWELL.
Regardless which, Jesse Malachi HOWELL and his first wife had two children, James Malachi HOWELL, who died young, and Martha Sarah HOWELL, born 12 April 1811, who married William Burney MEANS. Martha Sarah's mother died giving birth to her or soon thereafter.
James Malachi and Martha Sarah HOWELL were placed under the guardianship of their father, Jesse Malachi HOWELL, February 28, 1815. On January 1, 1827, he stated that James M. had died as a minor, leaving one sister of the whole blood (minor), one half brother (minor, died), and five half sisters. (Green's "History of Richland County", page 279)
Jesse married again to Martha before 1819 when their first child was born. From the following information, this compiler believes that Jesse Malachi HOWELL married second, his cousin. Martha HOWELL, born cir 1789, the daughter of John and Mary HOWELL and Jesse's first cousin, once removed. Thomas and Grace HOWELL of Craven County, South Carolina were their common ancestors.
Saluda Reese, whose research is referenced by Edwin L. Green in "A History of Richland County", typed this cover page for Jesse M. HOWELL's Will: "Will Of Jesse Malachi Howell//Died 1835//1st Wife Martha Taylor, died 1812//Daughter of James Taylor//2nd Wife Martha (nee Howell) Howell//Died 1851//(She was cousin to her husband)"Her dates of birth and death correspond to the age at death of Jesse's widow in 1851. Also indicating that Martha, daughter of John HOWELL (Sr.) married Jesse M. HOWELL. (Note: Green wrote that Jesse's second wife was Martha, niece of Martha TAYLOR.)
Elizabeth Pitts posted at GenForum this referenced information showing John HOWELL (Jr.)'s sister, Martha, as wife of Jesse M. HOWELL: "Mrs. Margaret BLAKE Sister of John James HAIG Richland Eq. Roll 69 Margaret's Children: Martha m. William Washington -Margaret m. Rev. Dr. BOWEN - Edward BLAKE - John Haig BLAKE with note see Card John J. HAIG 1818 which was: John Haig BLAKE w Elizabeth Howell BLAKE formerly GOODWYN and Elizabeth D.

Roll 267-290 Filed 3 Feb 1827 Then, on page 239 Nathaniel BOWEL m. Margaret BLAKE, dau of Margaret BLAKE, Sr., Richland Eq Bills 137, 1817." (Elizabeth Pitts, /cgi-genforum/email.cgi?89786841).
Grace HOWELL, daughter of John HOWELL (Sr.) and sister of Martha, in her will of 1835 named her sisters, Elizabeth REESE, Mary REESE and Sarah REESE, by their married surnames, and Martha HOWELL, also providing that Martha's maiden and married surname were the same.
Some say Jesse Malachi HOWELL was married second to Martha, "a niece of Martha TAYLOR", before 1819 when their first child was born, however, no niece of Martha TAYLOR who fits the given age of Jesse M.'s widow, born circa 1789, has been proven. "Martha TAYLOR, birth date not found, died 15 September 1851. She is the second wife of Jesse HOWELL and is the niece of his first wife." (unattributed) The 27 July 1850 U.S. Census of Richland District shows the household of Martha HOWELL, widow of Jesse Malachi HOWELL, and gives her age as 62, born then about 1788. The names of her children living with her proves her identity. James and Sarah TAYLOR had seven children, of whom two, Mary D., born about 1773 and Jesse, b. 1774, might have had a daughter Martha circa 1789, but no family has yet been found for either. James TAYLOR, Jr. married Margaret HIRONS and had a daughter Martha, b. Abt 1802, too young to be Martha HOWELL, widow, aged 62 in 1850. The age difference is reinforced by the newspaper extract which indicates Martha died in Columbia in Oct 1851 at the age of 61, born then about 1790.
SPECULATION: Edwin L. Green's work, above, states Jesse's second wife, Martha, was the niece of his first wife. Saluda Reese's typed cover page for Jesse Malachi's Will states "2nd Wife Martha (nee HOWELL) HOWELL Died 1851 (She was cousin to her husband)" Lastly, the descendant chart for "John (Thomas) HOWELL", died before 3 Aug 1760, from Carol Busto of Virginia indicates that Martha HOWELL was the second wife and widow of Jesse Malachi HOWELL of Richland District, SC. The source for this chart was the work of Saluda Reese. Also in it, John HOWELL, Sr., father of Martha born about 1789, was at his death married to Mary, maiden name not found. Martha TAYLOR had a sister Mary D., no husband assigned. If it is ever proven that Mary D. TAYLOR married John HOWELL, (not proven), and was mother of Martha, then Martha HOWELL would be both niece to Martha and Patience TAYLOR, and a first cousin to Jesse Malachi, making both positions above true. Current information does not show Martha and Patience to be related to Jesse Malachi other than by marriage. Again, any assistance confirming Jesse Malachi's marriages would be greatly appreciated.

In 1825, Jesse M. HOWELL was named guardian of Mary, Jane Margaret, and James Ross SCOTT. He was discharged in 1835, the year he died, when Jane S. JONES took James, while Mary married J. B. DAVIS, and Jane married J. H. ADAMS. The reference also states "Item of year 1837 has 'paid J. H. ADAMS on White House.' Right in estate of 'Uncle Wm. SCOTT.'" Green's "History of Richland County",page 360: Page A of Index of Book M: "No. 2010") (QUESTION: Are these SCOTT children descended from the William SCUTT & Elizabeth O'DANIEL line of Fairfax County, Virginia?)
In an undated abstract, between entries for 6 Apr 1826 and 11 May 1826, from Richland County Will Book H, page 170, Jesse M. HOWELL, along with Martin MARSHALL, Joseph E. REESE, and John MARSHALL are the commissioners in the estate division of William R. HOWELL. Heirs were: Joseph B. WHITE, Robert WESTON, Thomas BALDRICK, and Charles R. HOWELL.

Jesse Malachi died in 1835, Richland District. His will indicates five daughters, including four half sisters of Martha Sarah, and her two half brothers. From the 1827 record above, it appears that one unnamed half brother and a half sister died as minors. This establishes a total of eight children born from Jesse's second marriage.

The below, extracted from the LW&T of Brigadier General John PEARSON, may be citing Jesse M. HOWELL's purchase on 9 August 1814 of the home of Capt. Bryant MARSH and Martha DANIEL after their move to Wilcox County, Alabama. Bryant MARSH's home, in what is now Saluda County, South Carolina, is know as the MARSH-JOHNSON House and is in The National Historical Landmark Registry. The house first appears on the Mills Map of Edgefield District (1825) as a residence of "Capt. B. Marsh". In 1846 the plat of an adjoining plantation shows that the land belonged to Josiah Howell. In 1847 Isaac Johnson of the Old Barnwell District purchased the land from Mr. Howell. The Johnson family kept the property until 1945, at which time John Henry Hazel bought the house and 225 acres.
To understand the relationships in this will, Brig. Gen. John PEARSON, RS-SC Militia, was the uncle of Martha Pearson COOK who married first, Levi DANIELL and then second, Levi's cousin, John "Jack" DANIEL, brother of Martha DANIEL who married Bryant MARSH. Levi's sister, Sarah DANIELL married Capt. James TAYLOR. Jesse Malachi HOWELL married Martha TAYLOR, James and Sarah Daniell TAYLOR's daughter and second cousin to Martha Daniel MARSH. These lines of cousins, DANIEL and DANIELL in South Carolina were very tightly knit.
"WHEREAS I the said John PEARSON Senr. have laid myself responsible for the sum of fifteen hundred dollars in a bond dated 9th August 1814 made to Jesse M.

SMITH who intermarried with my daughter Judith PEARSON and whereas the said engagement was made by me at the instance and request of my said daughter and it appearing to me that a dividend of my lands herein devised may be reasonably estimated to the value of two thousand dollars it is my will that the sum of five hundred dollars be paid to my said daughter Judith her heirs or assigns by my executors herein after named after the expiration of twelve months from my decease and I hereby charge my personal estate not otherwise charged for the payment of the said sum of five hundred dollars being intended by me as a just compensation to my said daughter in lieu of any share or devise in my real estate in addition to the sum contained in the bond aforementioned which at the date of these presents is not satisfied making up the apparent deficiency in the aforesaid devises, of 1 and for my children and it is my will that my said daughter Judith shall accept of the said sum hereby bequyeathed to her in lieu of all claims, demands, rights, and expectations in the distribution by will of my real estate aforesaid."

Children from this marriage were:

+ 579 M    i. James Malachi HOWELL 401 was born before 1811 in South Carolina401 and died before 1827 in South Carolina.401

+ 580 F    ii. Martha Sarah HOWELL 402 was born on 12 Apr 1811 in Columbia, Richland County, South Carolina and died on 4 Apr 1873 in Roseneath Plantation, Gloster, DeSoto Parish, Louisiana at age 61.

149. Sarah TAYLOR (Sarah DANIELL28, James, RW-SC4, William I1) was born on 15 Nov 1793 in Richland County, South Carolina and died in 1794 in Richland County, South Carolina at age 1.

150. Rev. James Levi DANIELL, M.G. 116 (Levi, Esq. RS-SC30, James, RW-SC4, William I1) was born on 11 Jul 1797 in Hancock County, Georgia,117 died on 14 Apr 1846 in Barbour County, Alabama117 at age 48, and was buried in Ivey Cemetery, Russell County, Alabama.

General Notes: Rev. James Levi Daniell was born 11 July 1797 in Hancock County, Georgia. He was the only son of Levi DANIELL and Martha Pearson COOK. Levi died at age 41 when James was barely three years old. In his father's will, Levi bequeathed "... To my son James DANIELL 100 acres on Island Creek adj the land lent to my wife and adj. Robert CARR & John RAGAN. Also to James the following Negroes: Will, Rose, Sampson, Aleck, Moses, Bill, Hannah, Milley and Molley. ... All the lands lent to my stepmother Nancy DANIELL by my father's will adj. The lands whereon I now live which falls to me as my Stepmother's decease to be divided among my three children."

On 16 October 1803, when James was six, his mother married second John DANIEL, a cousin of James' father. John, called "Jack,' was a son of William DANIEL and Lucretia BELL of Edgefield County, South Carolina, and a nephew of Levi's father James O'DANIEL from Fairfax County, Virginia. James had dropped the "O'" from his surname and spelled it DANIELL.

James and his sisters, Catherine and Julia, were raised in John and Martha's home with his eight younger half-brothers and sisters.

When of age, James (Levi) DANIELL chose his step-father, John DANIEL, to be his guardian. In a Court Order, January 3, 1814, letters of guardianship were granted to "John DANIELL" as guardian over the person and property of "James DANIEL." As a result of James' action, John was also appointed guardian over James' sister Catherine DANIELL as well.

For the year 1814, or a portion thereof, John DANIELL returned an account against James for keeping a "helpless Negro woman & three children" up to the first of January 1815. From this, it seems that the DANIELL family took good care of their Negroes, providing for them even when infirm. James L. became a Minister of the Gospel when he became an adult. His life had to reflect the manner in which his family raised him.

In 1815 the estate of Levi DANIELL was ordered liquidated and apportioned to each of his heirs. Levi's step-mother, Nancy Hardwick Daniel BARROW died in 1814 and the things lent to her for her lifetime reverted to Levi's estate. The Court appointed commissioners to settle the estate with the executors being David B. MITCHELL, Thomas MANGHON, Miles GREENE, John W. DEVEROUX & Frederick FREEMAN.

On 3 December 1818, James Levi married Elizabeth Clements BUTTS, a daughter of Captain James BUTTS, a Revolutionary War soldier from North Carolina, then of Hancock County, Georgia.

In the 1820 census, James and Eliza's family includes a son under 10, Levi Cake, born 27 December 1819. James ha 16 slaves enumerate.d

The Minutes of the Hancock County militia records that in 1821, "James L. DANIELL a private in Capt. James MADDOX's Company being duly returned and called as a delinquent for failing to appear at the Regimental Muster held at Sparta on the 26th day of May last was fined two dollars-$2.00."

James L. DANIELL (DANIEL) appears in various Hancock County Court Minutes. In 1822, he was paid "the sum of two hundred and sixty nine dollars & ninety seven cents...in full for building and keeping in repair for the term of five years...a bridge across Shoulderbone at HARRIS's Mills on the road from Sparta to Greensborough." (Aside: I have seen " the bridge at Shoulderbone and Harris Mill" that James L. maintained for 5 years. Now certainly, the bridge has been rebuilt many times . The spot is one of the prettiest in Georgia, on the old road from Sparta to Greensboro. Tuck Wilson)

On July 5, 1824, James L. DANIEL applied to the Court of Ordinary for letters of administration de bonis non on the estate of James DANIEL, dec'd. William HARDWICK, Jr., executor, gave caveats to the requested letters, citing his being named in the will as executor and the fact that James L. and others had a suit pending against him in equity on account of the estate. The Court dismissed HARDWICK's caveats and issued letters of administration for the estate to James L. DANIEL as requested. HARDWICK'S appeal was permitted upon his posting security. On December 6, 1824, the denied HARDWICK's appeal and confirmed James L. DANIEL as administrator de bonis non of the estate of James DANIEL, dec'd.

As named in the will of his step-father, dec'd, James L. DANIEL became the executor of John DANIEL's estate, nominating George RIVES, Aaron SMITH, John HUBERT, Joseph P. McCULLOH & Thomas W. BURTON as appraisers on November 5, 1827. On James L.'s motion of January 5, 1829, the Court ordered that Joseph P. McCULLOH, George RIVES, Israel PALMER, James SIMMONS & John DREWRY divide and distribute the estate of John DANIEL so far as to lay off to Joseph T. DISMUKES in right of his wife, Mary DANIEL, his legacy or distributive share of the estate.

The Hancock County census of 1830, Series: M19 Roll:18 Page 151, Line 7 shows James L. DANIEL's household: 2 males 0-5 (James and John); 1 male 30-40 (James); 2 females, 0-5 (Catherine and ?); 1 female 5-10 (Martha); 1 female 20-30 (Elizabeth); 3 free Negroes; 38 slaves, 18 male and 20 females. These numbers do not exactly match his known family in 1830. As of 1 June 1830, his family consisted of: James, 32; Elizabeth, 27; Levi, 12; Martha, 7; Catherine, 4; James, 2, John, 3 months. Levi, 12, is not listed and and unknown female, 0-5 is shown. Levi may be one of the two males, 10-15, listed in his grandmother's household, Martha DANIEL, same page, line 21.

Rev. James Levi DANIELL and family moved from Hancock County, Georgia to becoming pioneers, some of the first settlers of Glennville, Barbour County, Alabama. He is so named along with James ALLEN, John ALLEN, John Bowles GLENN, the JACKSON brothers, Virgil BOBO, Tom SANFORD, Major Gerrard DENNARD, Captain Julius MITCHELL, Noah PITTS, Gardner DAVIS, and Gabriel TREUTLEN in the article referenced below. From the autobiography of Arthur Irwin BUTTS, cited in the article, it appears that Arthur, James, and others may have arrived in Barbour County on Christmas Day, 1835. (Arthur was a half-nephew to James Levi's wife, Elizabeth Clements BUTTS.) The move proved to be a potentially disasterous decision. This section of Alabama was an area of tension between the Creek Indians and white settlers, attested to by the Indian uprising there in 1836.

The Alabama Review, October, 1958, presents an account of the DANIEL family's escape from Indians at the start of the "Indian War of 1836." In an article titled "Old Glennville: An Early Center of East Alabama Culture" by Peter A. Brannon starting on page 255, he writes "...those early settlers, James DANIEL among them, at the Glennville site within a few months after coming into the Indian country, rushed away leaving their possessions at the mercy of the Indians, to Columbus and Roanoke, Georgia, when they escaped from the uprising popularly referred to as the "Indian War of 1836." Major FLOURNOY was the first white man killed by the Indians in the uprising. He was escaping from his settlement on the Hatchechubbee Creek, attempting to reach Columbus, when the Indians murdered him. The DANIEL family and other friends escaped across the Chattahoochee to Roanoke, where they left their horses and Negroes and such goods as they could get out with, only to have them all burned when the Indians later attacked that place." He continued later in the article: "My grandfather [Thompson] GLENN built the first house in Glennville....The Indians burnt his first house - he had taken his family to Meriwether county, Ga. in May 1836. He had befriended an old Indian, Estothlee, and who warned him the Indians were going to rise, but he doubted it. After FLOURNOY was killed, Estothlee came again, so Grandfather sent a messenger to warn the other settlers, so they escaped. He with his family crossed the river at Roanoke on Friday afternoon and the Indians captured the town Sunday morning." Near closing, he continued: "Nobody in Glennville was killed by Indians. Estothlee's warning saved a number of settlers. [William] FLOURNOY was killed not far from Villula on Wednesday before the first day of May."

Had Thompson GLENN not befriended the old Creek Indian Estothlee who warned of the coming attacks and James Levi and family not escaped the Creek Indian uprising, he and and his sons would have been the last direct male descendants of James O'DANIEL of Fairfax County, Virginia.

From the Columbus Enquirer 13 May 1836:
Creek War and massacre--the editor writes "These misguided Indians have-at length-commenced the work of death, which has so long been apprehended by our settlers in the new counties of Ala." Naming, William Flournoy, Hammond McKissne, wife and overseer, Davis, Hobbs, several negroes, and in all probability many others, (we fear Dr. Wellborn among them) have been killed...."

After the Indian War, two land grants are recorded in Russell County for James DANIEL: one for 38.735 acres to Patentee: JAMES DANIEL on 5 April 1837: Document Nr.: 2011; Land Office: Montgomery; Accession/Serial Nr.: AL1360__.414; Mineral Reservations: No, Authority: April 24, 1820: Sale - Cash Entry (3 Stat. 566); Township 17-N, Range 29-E, Meridian St Stephens, and a second for 81.58 acres to Patentee: JAMES DANIEL on 10 December 1841: Document Nr.: 7706; Land Office: Montgomery; Accession/Serial Nr.: AL4330__.162; Mineral Reservations: No; Authority: April 24, 1820: Sale - Cash Entry (3 Stat. 566); Township 13-N, Range 29-E, Meridian St Stephens. In probate papers of James' estate, this land was in then in Barbour County.

James filed a claim against the U.S. Government for Indian depredation to his property between 1836 and 1838. The original claim was apparently not paid, because on 3 May 1891, James' grandson, Samuel C. DANIEL, Jr. filed to become administrator of James Levi's long running estate probate, the value of which at that time was about $5000, "mostly the value of the original claim." The result of Samuel's pursuit of the claim was not found.

An entry in the Macon Georgia Telegraph, Dec. 12, 1843, page 2, supports the above claim. Under Georgia Legislature, House of Representatives: "Mr Hillhouse: (from the select committee) A bill to compensate J. L. DANIELL for property destroyed by Indians in 1836, while engaged in the service of the state at Roanoke in Stewart county." [Presented online by the Digital Library of Georgia]

APPROPRIATIONS
"to James L. Daniel, for Indian spoliations [sic] at Roanoke, about $1600 with sundry other appropriations for attorneys' fees, &c." [The Macon Weekly Telegraph, Macon, Georgia, Tuesday, January 9, 1844, Page 2]

On September 5, 1836, Warren JOURDAN applied for Letters of Administration de bonis non on the Estate of Levi DANIEL, dec'd. James L. DANIEL objected to the grant of letters to Warren JOURDAN because JOURDAN is not next of kin to Levi, nor connected by consanguinity or affinity. James also said that he was entitled to the Letters in preference of all others because he is the only son of Levi DANIEL and desires to have the Letters issued to him. The Court ruled in James' favor and ordered that he execute bond with security in the sum of $20,000, and that John W. DANIEL and James J. BUTTS be received as such security. "Whereupon the said James L. DANIEL appeared personally in open court - executed the bond required - was duly sworn and received Letters of Administration de bonis..." On January 2, 1837, the Court found that James L. had not made an inventory or appraisement of Levi's estate and upon motion by Warren JOURDAN was ordered to "shew" cause why he had not made the returns required by law. At the next meeting of the court, James L. failed to shew any cause, resulting in his Letters of Administration being revoked. Warren JOURDAN, now a legatee of Levi's will because he was the husband of James L.'s sister, Juliett Anna DANIELL, applied for the Letters of Administration for Levi DANIELL's estate, and was granted such in November, 1837. While the controversy over Levi's will was ongoing, James L. DANIEL, executor of John DANIEL's estate the court determined that he had fully and faithfully discharged his duties as executor and issued Letters of Dismission for him from that role. It is then indeed curious that he failed, or neglected, in executing his responsibilities in the estate of his father.

Glennville, Alabama is commemorated by a roadside marker, located thirteen miles south of Seale on U.S. Highway 431, which reads:
GLENNVILLE Marker Dedication or Erection Date: 1980
SIDE 1:
One of the earliest white settlements in the Old Creek Indian Nation. James Elizabeth Glenn, who named the town, and his brother Thompson Glenn, arrived here in 1835 only to have to evacuate during the Indian uprisings of 1836, at which time all buildings were destroyed and the remaining settlers killed. Thompson Glenn is credited with effecting the removal, to Columbus Georgia, of the entrapped white citizens of nearby Roanoke, Georgia, during the same uprising. Glennville was resettled upon the removal of the Indians. It rapidly attracted settlers and their social and cultural standards caused Glennville to be known as "The Athens of the South."
Erected by the Historic Chattahoochee Commission and the Russell County Historical Commission, 1980.
SIDE 2: GLENNVILLE
At its apex this town had collegiate institutes, finishing schools, a military academy, classic churches and stately homes. In 1854 John Bowles Glenn left here to establish a school at Auburn and became its first president of the board of trustees. This school in successive changes became Auburn University. Glennville was the home of the only known lynch mob that bought a newspaper advertisement, acknowledged the deed and published their names. The victim, a convicted murderer, was a member of a prominent Barbour county white family. The incidents brought national attention to the town. The failure to accept a railroad, seen as "an intrusion on their way of living," proved to be the herald of the town's demise.

From the Southern Christian Advocate, July 3, 1846: "Died, in Glennville, Ala., on the 14th April, the Rev. Jas. L. DANIEL, in the 48th year of his age...left a widow and seven children. Jno. B. GLEEN [GLENN], Glennville, Ala., June 18." He was buried in IVEY Cemetery in Glennville, Russell County, Alabama near his mother, Martha P. DANIELL. In 1857, his wife, Eliza C. DANIELL was buried beside him. James' tombstone reads:

Aged 48 yrs 9 mo's & 3 d's.

Children of men." Ps. 12 C. IV.

This cemetery is also mentioned in the Marie Godfrey's cemetery compilation (1960's) as " 8. cemetery on MITCHELL place, west of Glennville Plantation", also referring to it as "Ivy cemetery."

[Compiler's note: I visited Ivey Cemetery on 1and 3 December 2006. Mr. Wilfred Davis, who lives nearby, escorted me to the cemetery. He said that Barron I. and Charlotte Pirie Shacklette, recent owners of the property, reclaimed the cemetery from massive overgrowth of vegetation and the cemetery is cared for. Barron and Charlotte are deceased and buried here, he in 2001 and she in 1993. The cemetery is located off the southern dead end of a single lane clay road, about 50 yards to the right of a large white house at 250 Continuation Street, Pittsview, Alabama. According to dates on gravestones, Ivey Cemetery was in use from 1842 until 1875. Sadly, many graves are damaged and gravestones broken. Inscriptions are expectedly weathered. Some graves appear to have been robbed of foundation bricks or other materials. A small section of mortar and beautiful red brick lies among other materials by the southern fence line. Large slabs from many of the graves are either askew, broken (probably from being dropped when removed from their bases) and/or partially buried. The grave of my great-great-grandfather, Rev. James Levi DANIELL, 1797- 1846, over half sunken, still has its brick foundation, although a few bricks are missing. A number of unmarked small slabs with etched borders and possibly foot and side of grave markers are in piles or leaned on trees. The cemetery, bordered on three sides by pasture is fenced, but a back gate to the pasture is broken down, allowing horses and cows to wander about. The area is well fertilized. [Robert Louis Daniell)]

James died intestate, leaving a substantial estate. Administration of his estate changed hands three times in first three years after his death.

William A. ANDREWS was the first Administrator, appointed in May 1846. Orphans Book 2, page 262: "State of Alabama Barbour County "Know all men by these Presents that we William A. ANDREWS Livi L. DANIEL and E. C. DANIEL are held and firmly bound unto his Honor Patrick H. MITCHELL, Judge of the County Court, and his successors in office in the Penal sum of Fifty Thousand Dollars for the true payment of which sum will and truly to be made we bind ourselves our Heirs Executors and Administrators Jointly and Severally firmly by these Presents.

William A. ANDREWS (LS) Livi L. DANIEL (LS) Eliza C. DANIEL (LS) Approved May 23rd (sic) 1846 P. H. MITCHELL Judge"

On 26 April 1848, Henry W. JERNEGAN was next appointed Administrator of James' estate under penal bond of Fifty Thousand Dollars, securities Levi L. DANIEL and William A. ANDREWS. Signatories included Francis C. BUTTS, William HOLT, Eliza C. DANIEL, Judge P. H. MITCHELL, and W. R. COWEN, Clerk.

A year later, James' widow, Eliza C. DANIELL became administratrix of the estate. Orphans Book 3, page 344: "State of Alabama Barbour County Know all men by these Presents that we Eliza C. DANIEL Livi L. DANIEL Wm A. ANDREWS (blank space) BUTTS are held firmly bound unto George L. BARRY Judge of the County Court and his Successors in office in the sum of Thirty Thousand Dollars for the payment of which we bind ourselves our heirs Executors and Administrators firmly by these Presents sealed with our seals and dated this 23 day of July 1849. The condition of the above Obligation is such that whereas the above bound Eliza C. DANIEL has been duly appointed Administratrix of de bonis non of the Estate of James L.

Eliza C. DANIEL (LS) Wm A. ANDREWS (LS) F. C. BUTTS (LS) Livi L. DANIEL (LS)"

On 6 December, 1850, Eliza, Administratrix, through her attorneys Cato & Cato, filed a petition to the Honorable William R. COWEN, now Judge of the Probate Court, saying the estate was in debt for $7800 and sought to sell the land and crops which would sell for $8100, more than satisfying the debt and "will leave the Slave property division among the heirs of the estate and petitioner shows that it is the intent and the wishes of the heirs of said Estate as well as petitioner that the slaves be divided and hereby prays for an order of division as authorized by law...." In addition, she requests to sell the stock and fodder and requests a private sale of the cotton. (Orphan Book 3, p. 624)

Orphan Book 4, p. 82 records the continuing petition for division of James' estate: "The State of Alabama Barbour County To the Hon Judges of Probate of Said County The Petition of Eliza C. DANIEL, Administratrix of James L. DANIEL late of said County, Dec'd., respectfully shows that Said James L. dec'd Seized and possessed of the following real estate to wit: the northwest quarter of Section Thirty in township thirteen of Range Twenty nine containing one hundred and sixty two acres and ninety four hundredths, the east half of Section Twenty five Township Thirteen of Range Twenty eight, the west half of Section Twenty five in Township Thirteen and Range Twenty eight and the east half of Section Twenty four in Township Thirteen of Range twenty eight, all lying in Barbour County.

Your petitioner therefore prays that the that the said lands may be sold for the purpose aforesaid. Eliza C. DANIEL by her attys Cato & Cato"
In response, the Court set the second Monday in January to hear and determine the matter of said petition, ordering citation to the heirs of full age and the guardians of the minors to appear and contest the petition, further ordering that A. C. MITCHELL be appointed Guardian ad Litem for John L., Samuel C., Julia et (sic) A., & Sarah E. on 2d Monday on Jany A. D. 1851. The petition was later continued until 14 April 1851 when, appearing before Judge W. R. COWEN, the record shows "..it appearing to the satisfaction of this Court that heretofore to wit on the Second day of November 1850 A. C. MITCHELL was duly appointed Guardian ad Litem for John L., Samuel C., Julia A., & Sarah E. DANIEL minors and that thereupon the Said A. C.

On 19 May 1891, forty-five years after James Levi DANIEL died, another petition for Letters of Administration on his estate is found in Orphans Book 26, page 282: "The State of Alabama Barbour County Probate Court To the Honorable A. H. ALSTON, Judge Probate Court: Barbour County: The petition of the undersigned Samuel C. DANIEL, Jr. respectfully represents that James L.

James married Elizabeth Clements BUTTS,403 daughter of James BUTTS, Capt., RS-VA 404,405 and Sarah H. SIMMONS,403 on 3 Dec 1818 in Hancock County, Georgia. Elizabeth was born on 23 Jul 1802 in Hancock County, Georgia,117,403 died on 5 Oct 1857 in Hancock County, Georgia117 at age 55, and was buried in Ivey Cemetery, Russell County, Alabama.

General Notes: Elizabeth Clements BUTTS, born 22 Jul 1802, was the daughter of Captain John BUTTS and Sarah SIMMONS of Hancock County, Georgia. She married James Levi DANIELL on 3 December 1818. They made their home in Hancock County until 1835 when the family moved to Alabama.

"Elisa" DANIEL is named in the 6 February 1835 Will of her father, Capt. James BUTTS: "...my will and desire that the balance of my whole estate be equally divided into eight equal shares and also that my negroes be divided into eight equal shares to be equally divided between my children ... Elisa DANIEL, ..."

Elizabeth C. DANIEL's husband died in 1846. She is head of household in the 1850.

[Hulda HILL, age 18, may be the daughter of William Castilo HILL and Mary DYKES born 12 September 1832 in Georgia. If so, Hulda is said to have married James P. REDDING. Hulda is the sister of Julia Mariah HILL who married Eli H. CALLAWAY, a link back to the CALLAWAY-DANIELL cousins in Baldwin County, Georgia. Marietta REES is not yet identified. RLD)

Eliza's obituary was published in the Southern Christian Advocate, October 29, 1857, (abstract): "Mrs. Eliza C. DANIEL was born in Hancock Co., Ga., July 22nd, 1802 and died at the residence of her brother James J. BUTTS*, in her 56th year...removed to Glennville, Ala., with her husband, the Rev. James L. DANIEL and family in 1835... Junius JORDAN." [*Eliza's brother was James Irwin BUTTS. No doubt this was an "I" read as a "J." James I.'s home was in Hancock County, Georgia.RLD]

Eliza C. DANIELL is buried beside her husband Rev. James Levi and near his mother, Martha P. DANIELL, in the Ivey Cemetery, Russell County, Alabama. As of my visit to this cemetery on December 1, 2006, her large tombstone is askew from the line of James L's crypt and stone and broken into three large pieces, the lower portion partially buried and grown over by a root of a cedar stump. It is mostly legible:

In memory of
ELIZA C. DANIELL
Born in Hancock Co., Ga.,
July 23, 1802.
Died Oct. 5, 1857

Francis C. BUTTS, husband of her daughter, Catherine, is also buried close to James L. and Eliza C. in Ivey Cemetery. Catherine may also be buried here in an unmarked grave. There are many unmarked stones spread around the cemetery or piled near trees.

Compiler's note: I visited Ivey Cemetery on 1and 3 December 2006. Mr. Wilfred Davis, who lives nearby, escorted me to the cemetery. He said that Barron I. and Charlotte Pirie Shacklette, recent owners of the property, reclaimed the cemetery from massive overgrowth of vegetation and the cemetery is cared for.

The Ivey Cemetery is mentioned in the Marie Godfrey cemetery compilation (1960's) as "8. cemetery on MITCHELL place, west of Glennville Plantation." and also refers to it as the IVY Family cemetery.

The lands whereon I now live which falls to me as my Stepmother's decease to be divided among my three children." Catherine's step-grandmother was Nancy Hardwick Daniell BARROW, who died on January 18, 1814 in Baldwin County, Georgia.

The DANIELL genealogy published in The History of Hancock County, Georgia was written by Fannie Phillips MITCHELL of Montgomery, Alabama, a descendant of Catherine DANIELL. Catherine married Julius C. B. MITCHELL on May 20, 1817. Of "Katherine DANIEL" Fannie wrote "She was greatly loved by all who knew her. It is said that she raised 14 orphans. They were not by any means all of them dependent upon her, but, as she was willing to take them, the "kin" were only too glad to have her care for them and to have them raised by one so universally respected and loved."

In 1835, Catherine and Julius MITCHELL moved to Glennville, Alabama to join her brother James Levi DANIELL and family. Julius died in 1848. Catherine is head of household in 1850.

Between 1835 and 1840, some MITCHELL and DANIELL families migrated from Georgia to Barbour County, Alabama.

152. Juliet Anna DANIELL 113,116 (Levi, Esq. RS-SC30, James, RW-SC4, William I1) was born on 15 Oct 1800 in Hancock County, Georgia and died in May 1834 at age 33.

General Notes: In her father's will, Levi DANIELL bequeathed "... To my daughter Juliett all the remaining part of my lands on waters of Island or Rockey Creek on a division with my daughter Catherine, be there 100 acres. Also to Juliett the following Negroes: Joe, Nan, Armor, Jack, Abram, Sue, Davy, Ben, Siller, Tom and Dinah. ... The lands whereon I now live which falls to me as my Stepmother's decease to be divided among my three children."

When Juliet DANIELL, the third and youngest orphan of Levi DANIELL, came of age to choose her guardian, she, as her brother and sister before her, chose John DANIEL, her step-father. John gave his bond and security in the sum of twelve thousand dollars to be appointed Juliet DANIELL's guardian.

Miss Juliett DANIEL and Caroline ALSTON are listed as an early member, between 1815 - 1839, of the Mt. Zion Presbyterian Church, Hancock Co., Ga. [The History of Hancock County, Georgia, Elizabeth Wiley Smith. c1977, vol. 1, page 37-38.]

"Miss Juliet Ann DANIEL 3" is on a list of those with letters in the Milledgeville post office. Also listed are: William DANIEL James DANIEL, John Daniel, and Mrs. Martha DANIEL. [Georgia Journal, Jul. 4, 1820 -- page 3]

The (Milledgeville) Reflector, December 22, 1818: "NOTICE. Will be hired out for the ensuing year at my place of residence, on Island Creek, on Thursday the 31st of this month, the negroes belonging to Miss Juliet DANIEL, among whom are four likely fellows. John DANIEL, gurardian" [http://www.georgiagenealogy.org/hancock2/news%201795%20-%201819.html]

"On Monday after Christmas, the 30th instant, will be hired, at the Store house of Benjamin SANFORD, Hancock County, the negroes of Juliet A. DANIEL, consisting of men, boys, women and girls. (Signed) J. C. B. MITCHELL, Agent." (Tuesday, December 17, 1822) [Milledgeville Georgia Newspaper Clippings (Southern Recorder), Volume I, 1820-27, Tad Evans, p. 122]

On 24 June 1823, Juliet Anna DANIELL married Warren JOURDAN in Jones County, Georgia. She named one of her children Lucretia (I strongly suspect after Lucretia Bell Daniel, Jack's mother, as there were no Lucretias in the Warren JOURDAN or James DANIELL families. (Tuck Wilson).

QUESTION: Why was Juliet in Jones County? Might she have been there in conjunction with the family of Absolom EILAND? Some EILAND family researchers contend that Absolom married in 1775 Ann DANIEL, daughter of James DANIEL of Fairfield County, South Carolina. No proof has been cited for this assertion or that James had a daughter Ann, but if so, it would make Ann EILAND Juliet's aunt. There is circumstantial evidence that it might be possible.

Juliet was the mother of four daughters. She died in May 1834, survived by her husband and three young daughters, Catherine Lucretia, Sarah Geraldine, and Juliet Josephine.

Juliet married Colonel Warren R. JOURDAN,113 son of Benjamin JORDAN and Elizabeth HARVEY, on 24 Jun 1823 in Jones County, Georgia. Warren was born about 1785 in North Hampton County, North Carolina and died on 13 Dec 1843 in Athens, McMinn County, Tennessee about age 58.

"Jordan, Warren - Daniel, Juliet 24 Jun 1823"

General Notes: Notes from David Leon (Tuck) Wilson III: Early on, his parents came to Wilkes and Jackson counties in Georgia, where in 1787, Benjamin JOURDAN, a Revolutionary soldier, was killed, according to legend, by Indians. Something happened to Warren's mother soon after this. In 1791 Warren's uncle, Josiah JORDAN, took Warren and his siblings and reared them in Oglethorpe Co. (Wilkes Co. Deed Book GG, 1790-1793) and Josiah was appointed their guardian in 1791. ("Early Records of GA, Vol. II, Wilkes Co." by Grace G. Davidson. Warren JOURDAN was a member of the Georgia legislature from Morgan Co., GA 1812-1821, and Jones Co., GA 1827-1829, Speaker of the House in 1829, (Roster of Officers of GA House of Representatives, Session 54, 1829, GA Sec. of State web site), a US Presidential Elector from Jones Co., GA in 1824, and a delegate to the US Constitutional Convention in 1833. He was a speaker of note, parliamentarian, writer, and poet. Warren wrote a book of poetry, philosophy, and ethics for each of his daughters. According to some researchers, his handwriting was amazing, looks more like engraving. He often debated with Alexander STEVENS in Gainesville, GA and elsewhere. In 1825 he was appointed by Gov. TROUP to investigate the behavior of John CROWELL, an Indian agent and the death of the Indian Chief, Gen. William McINTOSH. (Archives and History of AL) His magnificent home in Gainesville was built around 1833 of heart oak and was often called "Jourdan's Folly" because of the great expense in building. He also spent a lot of money in other ways. He had exquisite ivory miniatures painted and set in gold for his wife and each of his daughters. He had large land holdings in Baker Co., GA and owned land in Morgan Co., GA, and a large plantation near Clinton in Jones Co., GA. All of this led, in part, to his financial problems. He lost most of his fortune in standing security for his cousin, Benjamin Smith JOURDAN.

JORDAN late of said county dec'd, through their uncle Josiah JORDAN ask that he be app. their gdn. Granted Sept. 26, 1791.

From Helen Leino attributed to Tuck Wilson: Warren JOURDAN retained the French spelling of his last name, although others of his immediate family changed to the newer form of "JORDAN." Records prove this to be true.

In the Land Lottery of 1804 in Oglethorpe County, Georgia for Revolutionary War services there are records for Warren JOURDAN (orphan), James JOURDAN, Josiah JOURDAN, and James DANIELL, Sr. (From notes of Louisa Caroline Floyd Wilson)

Notes from John R. Clarke: "Col. Warren JORDAN was born 1784/1787 in Northampton County, NC... the son of Benjamin JORDAN RS-NC and Elizabeth HARVEY and grandson of George JORDAN and Patience WARREN... Celia JORDAN, Benjamin's older sister, married Samuel TARVER, III -- the ancestor of most of the TARVERS of Richmond and Burke County, GA. One of my DANIEL girls married a grandson of Samuel and Celia TARVER.

In the 1820 U.S. Census, Georgia, Morgan County, Warren JOURDAN, age 16-26, and a female, 26-45, have no children in the household, 54 slaves enumerated.

The children of Warren and Juliet Anna Daniell JOURDAN were:

An added note by Judge Folks Huxford states: "This LaGrange (Georgia) was evidently another town from the present LaGrange which is in Troup County." [Tuck Wilson offers that "LaGrange" may have been the name of Warren JOURDAN's plantation.]
2. Catherine Lucretia JORDAN (1825-1862/1863) married Dr. Nathaniel Charles ALSTON, MD (1820-1890) of Abbeville District, South Carolina.

This will of Warren JOURDAN is dated 9 December 1837 but was never filed. Tuck Wilson found it in the bottom of a will drawer, along with a letter to his executor explaining he expected to be "called to the field" in what would likely be a fatal encounter, in Jones County and has generously shared his find:

153. Patsy HENDRICK 33 (Mary DANIELL32, James, RW-SC4, William I1) was born between Jan 1796 and 11 May 1797 in South Carolina33 and died before 17 Sep 1805 in Richland District, South Carolina.121

General Notes: Patsy HENDRICK, daughter of Dr. Robert H. HENDRICK and Mary DANIELL, of Richland County, South Carolina, is first known from the Will of her grandfather, James DANIELL of Hancock County, Georgia. She was born between January 1796 and 11 May 1797, determined from the date of her parents' marriage plus 9 months and the date of her grandfather's Will.

In his Will, James names Patsy and her father:
"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 fifty Acres of land on Broad River to him and his heirs forever." [The bequeaths were singularly for "him and his heirs." Patsy's mother, Mary, was not named in the Will and is presumed to have died.]
"Item. I give and bequeath to my grandaughter Patsy HANDRICK 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." A provision of the Will would revert Patsy's estate to her cousin, Jesse Daniell AUSTON, if Patsy died without a lawful heir of her body. [James' widow, Nancy Hardwick DANIELL, remarried to James BARROW in 1802 and died 18 January 1814 in Baldwin County, Georgia.]

Patsy's father remarried about 1800 to Mary STANLEY, widow of William HOWELL of Richland County, South Carolina. The 1800 census of Richland County, South Carolina was lost. The enumeration of Robert HENDRICK's famiily in it would have been valuable in determining what happened when in his family.

Patsy HENDRICK died before 17 September 1805 when Robert HENDRICK named only one child, Louisa in his Last Will and Testament. It contains no reference as to which of his wives named Mary was Louisa's mother, saying only "my beloved Wife Mary HENDRICK and my daughter Louisa." Patsy, daughter of Mary DANIELL, was previously thought to be Louisa Maria HENDRICK; however, Robert's daughter is enumerated in the 1810 and 1830 censuses as "under 10" in the household of Chestian WILLIAMSON, her step-father, in Richland County, and as "20 to 30" in the household of William GIBBS, her second husband, in Lowndes County, Alabama. Both show her birth as after 1800, confirming Louisa as Robert's daughter by Mary STANLEY. In the 1820 census of Richland County as Michael J. RUDULPH, Jr.'s wife, Louisa's age range is 16-26. Included in that time frame, 1794-1804, is both Patsy and Louisa's births.

In 1827, a legal challenge to the Will of James DANIELL of Hancock County, Georgia was decided by the Supreme Court of the United States. Patsy's half-sister, Louisa Hendrick GIBBES, and her mother, then Mary WILLIAMSON, had made claim to the slaves James lent to his widow, Nancy, and bequeathed to Patsy HENDRICK at Nancy's death. The summary of the case is below, surnames have been capitalized:
U.S. Supreme Court
Williams v. Daniel, 25 U.S. 12 Wheat. 568 568 (1827)
APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF GEORGIA
Syllabus
An absolute bequest of certain slaves to P.H. is qualified by a subsequent limitation over that if either of the testator's grandchildren, P.H. or J.D.A., should die without a lawful heir of their bodies, that the other should heir its estate, which converted the previous estate into an estate tail, and there being no words in the will which restrained the dying without issue to the time of the death of the legatee, the limitation over was held to be on a contingency too remote.
The rule of partus sequitur ventrem is universally followed unless there be something in the terms of the instrument which disposes of the mother, separating the issue from her.
The controversy in this cause arose out of the following clauses in the will of James DANIEL: "I lend my wife twenty-one negroes," naming them, and also certain lands, "during her natural life." And subsequently,
"I give and bequeath unto my granddaughter, Patsy HENDRICK, three negroes, viz., Joe, Parker, and Willis -- I also give her one-half of the negroes I have lent my wife, to her and her heirs forever. I give and bequeath unto my grandson, Jesse Daniel AUSTIN, son of Betty AUSTIN, one-half of the negroes I have lent my wife, after the death of my wife, Nancy DANIEL. Now my will is that if either of my grand children, Patsy Hendrick or Jesse Daniel AUSTIN, should die without a lawful heir of their bodies, that the other should heir its estate."
Jesse Daniel AUSTIN (now called by special act Jesse Austin DANIEL) survived Pasty HENDRICK, and after the death of Nancy DANIEL, the widow of the testator, took into possession all the negroes bequeathed to her during her life. Patsy HENDRICK died about the year 1805, intestate and without heirs of her body, being at the time of her death an infant about nine years old, leaving Robert HENDRICK, her father and Louisa HENDRICK, her half sister, by the father's
Page 25 U. S. 569
side, now Louisa GIBBES, one of the complainants, her next of kin. Robert HENDRICK died in 1814, having first made his will, bequeathing his estate to the said Louisa, his daughter, and his wife Mary, now Mary WILLIAMSON, also a complainant. Some of the slaves, to-wit, Sally and her children, were born in the lifetime of Nancy DANIEL.
The court below determined that the limitation over was too remote, and decreed one-half the slaves to the representatives of Patsy HENDRICK, the complainants. It also decreed that the slaves, Sally and her children, did not belong to the estate of the tenant for life. The defendants appealed to this Court.
MR. CHIEF JUSTICE MARSHALL delivered the opinion of the Court.
The first bequest to Patsy HENDRICK would pass the slaves therein mentioned to her absolutely, were not this absolute estate qualified by the subsequent limitation over if either of the testator's grand children, Patsy HENDRICK or Jesse Daniel AUSTIN, should die without a lawful heir of their bodies, that the other should heir its estate. We think these words convert the absolute estate previously given into an estate tail, and if so, since slaves are personal property, the limitation over is too remote.
There are no words in the will which restrain the dying without issue to the time of the death of the legatee. The remainder over is to take effect whenever either of the immediate legatees should die without a lawful heir of his or her body. The gift in remainder is a gift to the stock, and is limited over on a contingency too remote to be allowed by the policy of the law.
Page 25 U. S. 570
The second point is, we believe, well settled. The issue is, we believe, universally considered as following the mother unless they be separated from each other by the terms of the instrument which disposes of the mother.
Decree affirmed with costs.

154. Jesse DANIELL 122 (Betty DANIELL33, James, RW-SC4, William I1) was born on 9 Sep 1794 in Georgia24,122 and died on 22 May 1860 in Milledgeville, Baldwin County, Georgia122 at age 65. Other names for Jesse were Jesse Daniell AUSTIN,24 Jesse Daniell AUSTON,33 Jesse DANIEL, and427 Jesse A. DANIEL.

General Notes: Jesse DANIELL was born Jesse Daniell AUSTON (or AUSTIN) on 9 September 1794 in Georgia. He is named as "my grandson Jesse Daniell AUSTON, son of Betty AUSTON" in the 1797 LW&T of his grandfather, James DANIELL. No other record concerning Jesse's parents has been found. His birth, 9 September 1794, was recorded in the Bible of his Uncle Levi DANIELL where he is named as Jesse Daniell AUSTIN.
Jesse was most likely orphaned before 1797. His parents were not given a bequeath in his grandfather's LW&T. In 1801 his Uncle Levi's estate is paying for his schooling. He was raised in the home of his Aunt Martha, Levi's widow, and her second husband, John DANIEL from Edgefield County, South Carolina, a cousin of Levi and Jesse. John and Martha's home in Hancock County, Georgia included Levi's three young children, James, Catherine, and Juliet DANIELL, as well as another eight children from Martha's marriage to John. Records reflect a particular effort to maintain Levi's children's DANIELL surname while John's family line used the DANIEL spelling of the surname. Jesse likely chose the double L spelling in lieu of the single L to reflect his direct family line. There is no record of Jesse having been adopted by John and Martha DANIEL.

In his grandfather's will, Jesse was given "when he comes of age, the land lying on the Oconey that I lent to my son Levi DANIELL. I also give him one half of the negroes I have Lent my wife after the death of my wife Nancy DANIELL." (The land is described in the Will as "one half of the tract of land I now live on the whole of which contains three bounties. Also I lend him [Levi] the use of half of a tract of land lying on the Ocony River in Washington County during the time of eighteen years - - -") A provision of the Will would revert Jesse's estate to his cousin, Patsy HENDRICK, if Jesse died without a lawful heir of his body. [James' widow, Nancy Hardwick DANIELL, remarried to James BARROW in 1802 and died 18 January 1814 in Baldwin County, Georgia.]

Levi died in Dec 1800, the lands were administered for Jesse by Levi's estate. Nancy died in 1814. On 12 March 1814, James BARROW filed "a schedule of all the Negroes with their increase now in life (except one Negro man, Sanco, sold by James BARROW) that were lent by the last Will and Testament of James DANIELL dec'd. to his widow and relict Nancy DANIEL, afterwards Nancy BARROW, wife of James BARROW, during her natural life: Old Tom, Zouer(?), Old Rachel, Charlotte, Hester, Flander, Acre, Daphney, George, Moriah, Hictor, Biner, Dover, Caty, Peter, Pompy, Peggy, Ned, Ellinney, Billy, Moriah, Levin, Becky, Bob, Rachel, Hector, Sam, Sally, Sucky, Driver, Jupiter, Bob, Ellick, Pompy, Flander." The schedule, recorded in Hancock County, was witnessed by Jacob COBB and Garland HARDWICK.

In Levi DANIEL's estate records, an 1802 entry shows payment to Lewis PARKER for boarding and schooling of Jesse OSTEN (sic) for 1801 and 1802.
Hancock County, Georgia Will Book E, page 151, Abstracts from the Account of cash paid for the estate of Levi DANIELL, John HERBERT, one of the executors of the said estate, lists:
31 Dec 1804 - to John DANIELL for clothing, lodging of Jesse D. AUSTON for the year 1802, 1803, 1804 @ 12/year 36.00
31 Dec 1804 - same for goods taken up in Aug. for said estate 91.23
30 Dec 1807 - same for articles furnished Jesse D. AUSTON in 1805,1806,1807 8.62 ˝
31 Dec 1807 - same for boarding, clothing James L. DANIELL in 1805, 1806, 1807 187.00
31 Dec 1807 - same for Jesse D. AUSTON 195.00
11 May 1809 - paid John DANIELLY Ordin in favor of Nath Lee STEWART teacher, for the tuition of Jesse DANIELL, Catherine DANIELL, each 4.93 3/4 in the year 1807 19.75

At age 13, on 27 November 1807, Jesse legally changed his surname to DANIELL. The Georgia Black Book", Rev. Silas Emmett Lucas, Jr. (1807 entry) records, "Jesse Daniell AUSTIN changes name to Jesse DANIELL No father named 11-27-1807".
Another record of the name change was published on page 424 of "A Compliation of the Laws of the State of Georgia, passed by the Legislature Since the Political Year 1800, to the Year 1810, Inclusive.": "Whereas Jesse Daniel Austin, a minor, by his next friend, James Barrow[*], hath petitioned this Legislature to alter the name of the saod Jesse Daniel Austin, to that of Jesse Daniel: ... the said Jesse Daniel Austin, shall be known and called by the name of Jesse Daniel...."
[*James Barrow was the second husband of Jesse's step-grandmother, Nancy Hardwick Daniell Barrow. RLD]

On Dec. 10, 1807 , the Georgia legislature divided Baldwin County into four new counties -- Morgan, Jones, Putnam, and Randolph (renamed Jasper). In the same act, Baldwin County was given land east of the Oconee River taken from Hancock and Washington counties. The land Jesse inherited from his grandfather was on the Oconee in that part of Washington that was given to Baldwin.

The 1809 entry above reflects Jesse's surname change. His War of 1812 service record is as DANIELL, and the 1820 census so names him. Jesse's widow, Mary Ann (Tucker) DANIELL, included a Family Record, copied from a Bible, in her 1878 application for a War of 1812 widow's pension. Without variance, the names of her husband and thirteen children are clearly spelled DANIELL. These Bible records were certified to the court as correct by her brother, Judge Daniel Reese TUCKER of Baldwin County, Georgia. Still, various records for this family are found as DANIEL, including Jesse and Mary in the 1850 census of Baldwin County as well as their death records. Jesse's children are found with the DANIELL, DANIEL, and DANIELS surnames. [From contacts with living descendants, none use the double L spelling today. Jesse and Mary's son, Arthur, who seems to have used the double L all his life, had no children. RLD]

Jesse first volunteered for military service at age 17 years, nine months. During the War of 1812, he enlisted as a Private, serving in Capt. Tomlinson FORT's Company, Georgia Militia from 24 June 1812 to 28 September 1812. On 16 March 1852, Jesse testified before William H. SCOTT, Justice of the Inferior Court of Baldwin County, for the purpose of obtaining the County Land to which he may be entitled under the "Act granting bounty land to certain officers and soldiers who have been engaged in the military service of the United States" of September 28th 1850. He declared that he "was a Private in the Company commanded by Captain Tomlinson FORT, in the Regiment of Georgia Militia commanded by Col. SMITH of the United States Army, in the war with the Seminole Indians; that he volunteered at Milledgeville on or about 1st day of July A. D. 1812, for the term of three months, and was honorably discharged at St. Mary's on or about the 10th day of September A. D. 1812; that he received a certificate of discharge, which has since been lost; but as will appear by the muster rolls of said Company...." In further testimony, Jesse stated that he "was a Private in the Company commanded by Captain Seaborn JONES in the Regiment of Georgia Militia commanded by Colonel WILLIAMSON, in the war with the Creek Indians; that he volunteered at Sandersville, Washington County, on or about the first day if June A. D. 1836, and continued in actual service in said war for the term of two months and was honorably discharged at Columbus on or about the 11th day of August A. D. 1836; that he received no certificate of discharge, - but as will appear on the muster rolls of said Company." These records from the National Archives include Jesse's receiving bounty land warrants #62325-40-50, 40 acres, and #39075-120-55, 120 acres; his marriage to Mary A. TUCKER on 17 January 1816; his residence in Baldwin County in 1852, and 1855; and his death on 22 May 1860.

Jesse's widow, in her War of 1812 Widow's Pension Application, 13800, dated 1878, cited an additional service period from 10 July 1814 to 10 January 1815 "in Captain HORTON's Company, of Col. Thomas' Regiment" of Georgia Militia, and described Jesse at the time of this enlistment as "of medium size complection fair, read hare (sic), blue eyes, and weighed about one hundred + thirty pounds." Mary, at age 79, signed this page with a shaky hand. Her brother, Daniel R. TUCKER, and John R. SMITH attested it. (National Archives, War of 1812, record series M313, roll #24) No record supporting this service period was found.

Too good not to share: Jesse's physical description evoked this comment from Shannon Daniel Dukes, a fourth great-granddaughter: "I had to laugh out loud at the description given of him during his enlistment as red headed and blue eyed with fair skin. We have a running joke about the "Daniel" gene in my family because all the kids come out with fair skin, reddish/blonde hair and the bluest eyes you have ever seen." But even more interesting is that Jesse's paternal line is Austin/Auston, not Daniel/Daniell.

In January 1815, "William HARDWICK, Executor of the last will and testament of James DANIELL, dec'd, returned an account of Negroes which were lent by said will to Nancy DANIELL, wife of the said James, afterward Nancy BARROW during her natural life, together with their mansion which was ordered to be recorded." as recorded in the minutes of the Hancock County, Court of Ordinary. Half of these Negroes, lent to Nancy by James DANIELL, were bequeathed to his grandson, now Jesse DANIELL, nee Jesse Daniell AUSTON, and half to granddaughter "Patsy HANDRICK" upon Nancy's death. Patsy apparently died before 17 September 1805, the date of her father's Will in which he named but one child, Louisa Maria HENDRICK, Patsy's half-sister. Patsy's half then belonged to Jesse.

From the Georgia Journal, Dec. 20, 1815, page 3:
"Take Notice:
Some time past I read a piece in the Georgia Journal, signed James BARROW, in which he states, that after the death of his wife he called on the Executor of James DANIEL, deceased, - (meaning myself as I suppose) to take possession of a parcel of property held by his wife, during her life, consisting, as he says, of negroes, land and stock. In this it seems he would willingly induce a belief in the public mind, that I have neglected my duty as Executor. Now the fact is simply this - I did receive the land and negroes for Jesse DANIEL, agreeably to the Will of said deceased; and further, according to said Will, the stock of all kinds was given to Levi DANIEL, whose Executor (Robert McGINTY) was present when I received the other property, and acknowledged (to the best of my recollection) that the stock was then subject to his direction for the use of the heirs of Levi DANIEL, dec'd - and why they have not been taken away, I neither know or care. All these facts must have been known to Mr. BARROW. WILLIAM HARDWICH [sic]. November 5."

Jesse DANIELL and Mary A. TUCKER were married on 17 January 1816 in Washington County, Georgia by John WILLIAMS, a Justice of the Peace. Mary, born 31 August 1799 in Richland County, South Carolina, was the daughter of John Robert TUCKER and Ann REESE, then residents of Washington County. In her Widow's Pension Application, Mary related that neither she nor Jesse had been previously married and that she and Jesse made their home in Washington County for several years before moving to Baldwin County. Also in 1816, William HARDWICK, executor of the will of James DANIELL, returned to the Hancock County Court of Ordinary an account against Jesse DANIELL, a minor and legatee of James in the amount of eighteen hundred & ninety dollars, fifty one & one half cents, along with an account of money received for Jesse amounting to fifteen hundred & ninety three dollars and eighty nine cents.

Between 1817 and 1844, Jesse and Mary had 14 children: James Robert, born 24 May 1817, died 10 Jul 1817; Joseph Levi, born 9 Jan 1819, died 12 Sep 1821; John Thomas, born 6 Jul 1820, died 21 Apr 1905; Arthur Reese, born 20 Jan 1822, died aft 1880; Robert Tucker, born 17 Dec 1823, died aft 1880; Martha Ann, born 15 May 1825, died after 1880; William Harper, 23 May 1827, died aft 1900; Richard Marion, born 19 Dec 1828, died 18 Jan 1834; Louiza Costanza, born 25 Sep 1831, died aft 1880; Annabella Elizabeth, born 15 Dec 1833; Daniel Harrison, born 30 Nov 1835, died 20 Sep 1840; Mackerness Goode, born circa 1840, died 27 Aug 1842; James R., born abt 1842, died 1914; and Augustus S., born abt 1844, died 17 Apr 1865. Mary named 13 of her 14 children in her 1878 widow's pension application, providing dates of birth and death on most. James R., her fourteenth, is known from the 1850 census.

The two sons noted were Joseph Levi, and John Thomas. Names of interest around Jesse in 1820 are: Joseph TUCKER, 16-26, his next door neighbor and brother-in-law; John L. THOMAS and David THOMAS, both 26-45, two households from Jesse; James BOYKIN, 26-45, and Jesse PROSSER, 26-45, are nearby. Jesse's son Arthur R. married Caroline R. PORTER, according to a family Bible, her name is sometimes found as PROTHER or PROSSER. The BOYKIN family was associated with the DANIELL cousins in South Carolina.

Jesse married Mary Ann TUCKER,122,429 daughter of John Robert TUCKER 430,431 and Ann REESE,158,431 on 17 Jan 1816 in Washington County, Georgia.122 Mary was born on 31 Aug 1799 in South Carolina122 and died on 1 Jun 1880 in Baldwin County, Georgia at age 80. Another name for Mary was Mary A. DANIEL.

Marriage Notes: In her Claim for Widow's Pension, War of 1812, dated 27 March 1878, Mary A. DANIELL stated that she "was married to the said Jesse DANIELL in the County of Washington, in the State of Georgia, on the 17th day of January A. D. 1816, by one John WILLIAMS, who was a Justice of the Peace and that her name before said marriage was Mary A. TUCKER" and further stated that "neither her or her husband had ever been married before."

General Notes: Mary Ann TUCKER was born 31 August 1799 in Richland District, South Carolina, to John Robert TUCKER and Ann REESE who later moved to Washington County, Georgia. Mary Ann and Jesse DANIELL were married on 17 January 1816 in Washington County, Georgia by John WILLIAMS, Justice of the Peace.

The 1820 census of Baldwin County records Jesse DANIELL's family as himself, 16-26, two males under age 10, and a female 16-26 (Mary). Mary's brother, Joseph TUCKER, 16-26, is their next door neighbor.

Family records included in Mary's War of 1812 Widow's Pension Application in 1878 and the 1850 census show that Jesse and Mary had 14 children, 11 boys and three girls, between 1817 and 1844. Five sons died young: James Robert in 1817; Joseph Levi in 1821; Richard Marion in 1834; Daniel Harrison in 1840; and Mackerness Goode in 1842. Their births and deaths were certified in court documents as recorded in a family bible.

Mary and Jesse have not been found in the 1830 census. The 1840 census of Washington County, Georgia enumerates the family of a Jesse DANIEL which appears to be theirs. Neighboring TUCKER, DAVIS, and POSEY families add support to this being them.

Jesse (56) and Mary A. (51) DANIEL are in the 1850 census of Baldwin County with their children, Arthur 26, Anabella 15, James R. 12, and Augustus 5.

Jesse died on 22 May 1860, leaving Mary Ann a widow with one minor child. On 20 August 1860, Mary E. DANIEL is head of household in Salem, Baldwin County, Georgia, and is fairly wealthy, "Mary E. DANIEL 60 F W 10,000 27,500 SC". Her children, Anabella 25 F W GA, James 23 M W Overseer GA, and Augustus 15 M W GA are with her. Next door is William A. DAVIS 40, wife Ann M. (Martha Ann DANIEL, Mary's daughter) 35, and son Samuel DAVIS, 12. (Series: M653 Roll: 111 Page: 226)(Mary E. and Mary A. are the same person. She is named as Mary E. in 1860, and is Mary A. on most other records. RLD)

The 1860 Baldwin County Index of Slave Owners, Salem District, listed: Mary D. PROSSER; Daniel R. TUCKER, (Hirer?), for M. E. DANIEL and children; William A. DAVIS; William A. DAVIS, Hirer, ? T. DANIEL, owner; Wm. A. DAVIS, Hirer, estate of J. DANIEL of Baldwin County, owner; Eliza B. PROSSER, Exet of W. D. PROSSER; Eliza B. PROSSER, Hirer, Fayette ECHOLS of Hancock Co., owner; William P. PROSSER. (http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ga/county/baldwin/1860slaveowners.html)
Daniel R. TUCKER, agent for M. E. (A.) DANIEL and children is Mary's brother. "? T. DANIEL" is likely John Thomas, Mary's son. Another son, Arthur, married Caroline R. PROTHER. (Her maiden given as PORTER in a family bible, PROTHER in a Baldwin County marriage record, and may have been PROSSER, the reason for including them in the above. RLD)

The War Between the States may have claimed Mary's son, Augustus, who perished in 1865 at age 20.

By 1870, Mary A. DANIEL is living in the home of her son, Arthur DANIELL, 48, his wife, Carrie R., 40, Mary's unmarried daughter, Anabella, 35, and Henry POSEY, 20, a grandson by Mary's daughter, Louisa and Henry W. POSEY.

Mary A. DANIELL's War of 1812 widow's pension was approved in 1878, certificate 10037. She was granted $8.00 a month from March 9, 1878, based on Jesse DANIELL's service in the War of 1812 with Capt. Tomlinson FORT's Company of the Georgia Militia, other additional periods of service in the Georgia Militia in 1814 and 1836 in the Creek Indian War were also cited. Her pension application, preserved in the National Archives, contains a large amount of family information used to document her family.

Mary died of jaundice in May 1880 in Baldwin County, Georgia, aged 80, as listed on the 1880 Federal Census Mortality Schedule Baldwin County. Even so, she was named on the List of Pensioners on the Roll January 1, 1883 Milledgeville, Baldwin County. (http://www.rootsweb.com/~gabaldwi/1883pensioners.html)

The petition for letters of administration by S. W. DAVIS, signed 7 June 1880, states "...Mary A.

Baldwin County Court of Ordinary records 9 July 1880 show that S. W. DAVIS, Mary's grandson Samuel, was appointed administrator of her estate; W. A.

Biograhy by Marc Hagan, 3009 164th Ave. NE, Bellevue,WA 98008-2020
Charles Brent was a colonel in the Va. State militia, and a pall-bearer at Col. Morgan's Funeral.He was recorder in Winchester 1808-10, mayor of Winchester 1809, and justice 1811.
From tree #236
Charles Brent was born at "Winter Hill", an estate 12 miles west of Winchester, Virginia.After serving in the Revolutionary War, he settled at "Winter Hill."He served again in the War of 1812.His sons all served in the Army of the Confederacy.His daughter, Mary, married Captain R. M. Sydnor, who fought as a sailor in the War of 1812, and was captured by the British.He escaped after 2 years and was given command of a privateer vessel.They settled at Sydnor's Gap, west of Winter Hill.Charles was a colonel in the Virginia State Militia, and was a pallbearer at General Morgan's funeral.He was Recorder in Winchester, Virginia, 1808-1810; the mayor of Winchester, Virginia, 1809; and was a Justice, 1811.(Some information taken from "Shenandoah Valley Pioneers and their Decendants").
The Brent - Rinker - Clagett House, "Winter Hill."
Location: On the east side of the Cedar Creek Grade, Route 622, a short distance north of Marlboro.
This fine old brick mansion is alleged to have been built by Capt. Charles Brent in 1811 (Cartmell - page 283).It stands on land which was granted to Benjamin Fry by Lord Fairfax, conveyed to John Cartmell by Benjamin Fry on April 3, 1791 (F.D.B. 23 - page 725).Henry Moore's daughter Rachel, was the wife of Charles Brent (Russell - page 50).
On March 10, 1805, Herry Moore and Catherine his wife conveyed to Charles Brent 115 acres adjoining the Rev. Nash LeGrand and David Wilson near "the forks of the great Road" (F.D.B.S.C. 5 - page 80).This is undoubtedly the "Winter Hill" tract.We know this because on January 31, 1828, Charles Brent gave a deed of trust on the property describing it as containing 115 acres and being a tract "on which Charles Brent now resides" (F.D.B. 53 - page 388).The "great road" referred to is the Cedar Creek Grade, the earliest road authorized by the Court of Old Frederick County, and the "forks" referred to is the point where the present-day Route 622 is joined by route 623; and this is exactly where "Winter Hill" is located.
Captain Charles Brent was a man of considerable importance in Winchester and Frederick County.He lived in Winchester prior to the building of "Winter Hill" and was Mayor of the Town in 1807 and 1809 (Cartmell - page 163).He was a soldier in the Revolution and in the War of 1812 (Cartmell - page 490).He represented Frederick County in the Virginia House of Delegates from 1808 to 1811 (Cartmell - page 513).His children were Henry M. Brent, John G. Brent, Charles Innes Brent, Mrs. James P. Riely, Mrs. Emily O'Bannon, Susan Brent and Mary A. Sydnor, wife of Capt. R. M. Sydnor. At the time of his death he owned almost 600 acres of land extending from "Winter Hill" almost to Marlboro and including another home site and large spring, known as "Spring Hill" which we shall consider later.
In his will, proved January 4, 1830, Charles Brent "of Winter Hill" devised his property to his wife Rachel for life and directed that at her death it be equally dividee among his children either by physical division or by sale.He also directed that his burial should be in the family graveyard in the southeast corner of his orchard to be kept permanently as a family plot (F.W.B. 15 - page 444).We assume that he was buried in the "Winter Hill" graveyard as he directed, but there is no inscrebed marker to indicate his grave.The only two headstones now to be seen there are those of Charles Brent (1735-1822) his father, and Sally Brent his daughter who died in 1818 at the age of 17.
It is obvious from the fact that Charles Brent gave many deeds of trust on his property prior to his death in 1830 that he was in financial difficulty at that time.One of these deeds of trust was to his son Henry M. Brent on the 115 acre "Winter Hill" tract (F.D.B. 53 - page 388, January 31, 1828).Rachel Brent survived her husband for many years and after her death the old home place came into the possession of Henry M. Brent, a Winchester business man and banker.
Henry M. Brent died in 1875.His sons were Edwin Sowers Brent and Henry Moore Brent, Jr. (W.W.B. 3 - page 43).One June 11, 1883, R. T. Barton, Adminsitrator of Henry M. Brent conveyed the "Winter Hill" tract plus other Brent lands, to make a total of 260 acres, to Casper Rinker (F.O.B. 99 - page 80).Casper Rinker had lived at Opequon and run a mill there for many years.
In his will, proved March 4, 1885, Casper Rinker devised the "Brent Farm" to his wife for life and at her death to his daughter Annie N. Claggett, wife of J. Norton Clagett (F.W.B. 39 - page 402).H. Casper Clagett, son of Annie N. and J. Norton Clagett inherited "Winter Hill" from his parents.
In his will, proved April 8, 1955, H. Casper Clagett devised his real estate to his second wife Pearl Hinkins Clagett for life and at her death to his step-daughter Mrs. Thelma E. Billmyer, the former Thelma Everley.

173. Major Henry Gunnell HURST (Mary GUNNELL36, Catherine O'DANIEL6, William I1) was born in 1769 in Fairfax County, Virginia and died on 1 Jan 1855 at age 86.

General Notes: Henry Gunnell HURST is named as "Harry", a son of James HURST in the 1849 settlement of the estate of his Uncle William HURST.

"One particular son of James Hurst & Mary Gunnell is of interest to me as he lived here in Jeffersonville. That is Major Henry Hurst, the aid-de-camp to William Henry Harrison, born about 1769, and who died here 1-Jan-1855; he was buried in the old long-gone City Cemetery; supposedly everyone there was re-buried at Walnut Ridge, but the online lists for that cemetery don't include him.
He studied law in the offices of Benjamin Sebastian in Louisville Kentucky, and married Betsy Sebastian, thought to be Ben's daughter, on 2-Apr-1796 in Louisville. They had a son Benjamin who served in the Indiana State legislature, and who died 31-Dec-1837 in Logansport IN.
They are also thought to have had a son Harry in 1798 who died young, possibly in Knox Co. Indiana, where Henry seems to have been a kick-a** frontier lawyer. He also practiced in Corydon, Harrison Co., IN, home of my Hursts from 1807 to the present.
Problem comes in with wife #2, named Nancy. Seems she was a Stanhope and was said to have been Henry's childhood sweetheart in some research that fails to make any mention of Besty Sebastian. Ok, but my mom married her childhood sweetheart as husband #2, so I can buy that he went back to Fairfax to marry her. Just don't undertstand omitting wife #1.
Henry had a son William Henry Hurst 1-Aug-1805 so either Henry married Nancy before that date or William Henry is also Betsy's son.
A Mrs Nancy Hurst is buried in Walnut Ridge who died 22-Dec-1816, very early. Did Henry marry 3 times, to 2 Nancys? There seems to be some data that Nancy was Nancy D. Warfield who had previously been married to Samuel Theobald in 1816 in Fayette Co.
Henry also had a daughter Mary Ann Hurst b. about 1808. Mary married to William L. Leviston, in Jeffersonville, IN, on 8-Oct-1832. He was the Jeffersonville Postmaster. His middle initial L may actually be S and may be for Stanhope.
I have Mary Ann's will, and she is clearly Henry's daughter, there is no dispute of that. But I've had a lot of trouble piecing this all together. Henry's son William named a daughter after her, Mary Leviston Hurst, 20-Feb-1848. William also seems to have had two sons named Henry, both of whom died young and are buried at Walbut Ridge. I have 12-Apr-1857 as William's date of death, assuming that was in Mississippi. Wife Anna Isabella Bodley died 1853 loc unknown to me.
Henry's son William, his line forward seems fairly well documented, as two of his descendents joined the DAR and provided data (Sue Palham Trigg and Mary Hurst Trigg).
I've accumulated a lot of peripheral data on Henry over the years. There was a Robert K. Moore who was a friend of the family, some land transactions for him took place in Knox Co. In and back in Fairfax VA." (Douglas Quebbeman, now Daiyu Hurst, daiyu.hurst@gmail.com, 10/28/2006)

Henry married Betsy SEBASTION on 2 Apr 1796 in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky. Betsy was born circa 1788.

General Notes: Henry HURST "studied law in the offices of Benjamin SEBASTIAN in Louisville, Kentucky, and married Betsy SEBASTIAN , thought to be Ben's daughter, on 2-Apr-1796 in Louisville. They had a son Benjamin who served in the Indiana State Legislature, and who died 31-Dec-1837 in Logansport, IN." (Douglas Quebbeman, now Daiyu Hurst, daiyu.hurst@gmail.com, 10/28/2006)


The child from this marriage was:

+ 650 M    i. Benjamin HURST died on 31 Dec 1837 in Logansport, Indiana.

Henry next married Nancy STANHOPE, daughter of William STANHOPE and Barbara DONALDSON. Nancy was born in 1776.

General Notes: "Problem comes in with wife #2, named Nancy. Seems she was a STANHOPE and was said to have been Henry's childhood sweetheart in some research that fails to make any mention of Betsy SEBASTIAN. Ok, but my mom married her childhood sweetheart as husband #2, so I can buy that he went back to Fairfax to marry her. Just don't undertstand omitting wife #1. Henry had a son William Henry HURST, 1-Aug-1805, so either Henry married Nancy before that date or William Henry is also Betsy's son.
"A Mrs Nancy HURST is buried in Walnut Ridge who died 22-Dec-1816, very early. Did Henry marry 3 times, to 2 Nancys? There seems to be some data that Nancy was Nancy D. WARFIELD who had previously been married to Samuel THEOBALD in 1816 in Fayette County." (Douglas Quebbeman, now Daiyu Hurst, 10/28/2006)


Children from this marriage were:

+ 651 F    i. Mary Ann HURST was born about 1808.

+ 652 M    ii. William Henry HURST died on 12 Apr 1857.

Henry next married Nancy D. WARFIELD.

General Notes: "A Mrs. Nancy HURST is buried in Walnut Ridge who died 22-Dec-1816, very early. Did Henry marry 3 times, to 2 Nancys? There seems to be some data that Nancy was Nancy D. WARFIELD who had previously been married to Samuel THEOBALD in 1816 in Fayette County." (Douglas Quebbeman, now Daiyu Hurst, daiyu.hurst@gmail.com, 10/28/2006)

General Notes: Peter is named in the settlement of his Uncle William HURST's estate as "Peter HURST - or if dead (6.34)". It appears that Peter was one of those who "moved west" and did not stay in contact with the family or died.
Peter HURST moved to Kentucky and married Ann "Nancy" RUST in 1801. They had 15 children. Peter died 9 February 1846 and is buried in Woodford County, Kentucky.

Catherine married John C. SULLIVAN.131 John died before 1842.

190. George GUNNELL 131 (William GUNNELL38, Catherine O'DANIEL6, William I1) was born on 8 Sep 1783 and died about 1847 about age 64.

General Notes: George GUNNELL inherited the house at Gunnell's Run from his sister Ann and was administrator of her estate. As other siblings died, the estates became very entangled when one died before another's estate was settled. George had the apparently thankless job of trying to settle the estates.
In the 1830s, George went to Mississippi for several years, renting out the family slaves for whom there was no work in Virginia.
In addition to being a farmer, George also owned a mill and was involved in local government. He served as a Justice of the Peace for Fairfax County from 1817 to 1827 and again in 1839 to 1840 after returning from Mississippi.
George GUNNELL died about 1847. Court minutes of that year reflect that John GUNNELL was appointed administrator for the estate of George GUNNELL, deceased.

191. Dr. William H. GUNNELL 131 (William GUNNELL38, Catherine O'DANIEL6, William I1) was born on 5 Jul 1786,42 died on 29 Sep 183442 at age 48, and was buried in Gunnell Family Cemetery, Fairfax County, Virginia.

General Notes: William H. GUNNELL was a doctor, often called upon to treat his neighbors. The Will Books of Fairfax County show numerous references in estate accounts to fees paid to Dr. William GUNNELL. He was well educated and had an extensive personal library. In addition to being a physician, he was also a planter, having both acquired and inherited land and was bequeathed slaves by his father's will.

In his Will, William gave land to his brothers and sisters and his nephew Oscar MIX. He also freed his slaves to go to Liberia.

William is buried in the GUNNELL Family Cemetery located at the old homestead known as "Gunnell's Run" (formerly "Graceland") which was built in the 1750's. It is located at 600 Innsbruck Avenue, Great Falls, Virginia. His tombstone is recorded as reading "In memory of Doctor WILLIAM GUNNELL who was born on the 5th. of July 1786 & expired on the 29th. of Sept. 1834 in the 49th. year of his age."

The child from this marriage was:

+ 694 M    i. Oscar Gunnell MIX, M.D. 269 was born on 15 Jul 1822, died on 15 Jan 1899 in Charles Town, Jefferson County, West Virginia268 at age 76, and was buried in Zion Episcopal Cemetery.

193. Colonel John GUNNELL 131,132 (William GUNNELL38, Catherine O'DANIEL6, William I1) was born on 7 Mar 1793 in Virginia,133 died on 23 Jun 1874 in Vienna, Virginia at age 81, and was buried in Andrew Chapel Cemetery.

General Notes: "John GUNNELL inherited a part of William GUNNELL III's plantation known as Hidden Springs. Here he enlarged a small existing timber-framed house. He was farming large tracts of land at this time and was listed on the Slave Schedule as owning twenty-two slaves\emdash a very great number for this area. Like his father and other men in the family, he followed a tradition of public service. He was recommended for lieutenant in the 60th Regiment of Virginia Militia in 1816, and by his death in 1874, he had risen to the rank of colonel. He also served as a road surveyor, a magistrate, was a member of the School Commission from 1837 to 1845, sheriff from 1847 to 1850, and justice for Fairfax County from 1835 to 1856.7...
This land on which the John Gunnell House was built was once part of the 12,588-acre Great Falls Manor of Thomas, sixth Lord Fairfax. Early settlers grew tobacco transported by rolling road to the tobacco houses at the Ports of Georgetown and Alexandria. In the second half of the eighteenth century, farmers on this isolated, up-country land leased small parcels of 100 to 200 acres from Bryan Fairfax, who would be Thomas's heir. Practicing agrarian reform, Bryan required each farmer to build a 16 foot x 16 foot or a 16 foot x 20 foot log house and plant orchards and a crop other than tobacco or corn. The latter were forbidden because of the devastating effect they had had on the fertility of the farm land to the south. In 1791, William Gunnell III and his wife Sara Coleman bought 676 acres of land from Bryan Fairfax, adding it to 450 acres bought from John Harle in 1785. This parcel became the center of a large, self-sufficient plantation of more than 1,000 acres, including more than forty slaves. Fruit, wheat, rye, tobacco, corn, and flax were grown here. At his death in 1820, the house and 159 acres went first to William's daughter Ann; and then, at her untimely death, to his son George. In 1842 the property was sold on the courthouse steps to Charles Binn who advocated the use of limestone to restore land impoverished by corn and tobacco crops. In 1844 Binn sold the property to William Gunnell III's nephew, George W. Gunnell. His advertisement of the sale in the Alexandria Gazette, April 27,1844, gives a good description of farming here:
There are 15 or 20 acres of prime meadow ground. On it is a large frame HOUSE
containing six rooms…also Kitchen, Stable, Corn-house, Meat house and Dairy.
In the Orchard and adjoining fields there are 289 Trees of choice Apples, 100 of
Peaches of different kinds, Quinces, Pears, Plums, & every variety of Cherries.
From the sale of fruit in the markets of the District of Columbia, the subscriber
has made more than 12 per cent on the price he is willing to take for the land.
There are never failing streams and springs of fine water in each of the 5 fields.
Binn also referred to livestock, including horses, cows, sheep, and hogs. Since he owned the property for only two years, this description must be of the farm Gunnell had developed, and his sons, George and John, continued. Until recently, there was a barn at Gunnell's Run which was typical of early-nineteenth-century barns in this area. It was timber-framed with pegged mortise and-tenon joinery, tall windows, and a central entrance through the longitudinal sides. There was a similar barn on the property where the John Gunnell house was built. A 1950s oil painting by Nancy Stevenson shows the barn with additions. It may have been part of William Gunnell III's plantation, servicing farming activities on this parcel. Clearly very old and in very bad condition in the 1950s, it was subsequently demolished.
After the division of William Gunnell III's estate, only John and George remained farming the land. One sister died, the others married and moved away. The other two brothers chose medicine rather than farming as a career. Various parcels were sold out of the family. The large number of slaves\emdash greater than the land could support\emdash became a problem. George spent some years in Mississippi leasing the slaves. This extended absence contributed to his eventual bankruptcy and loss of the William Gunnell III home place. George died in 1850 with John acting as executor. John was listed in the 1859 Fairfax County personal property tax records as having one male over sixteen (probably George Coleman), five slaves over sixteen, eight slaves over twelve, seven horses or mules valued at $350.00, twenty-five cattle or sheep valued at $300.00, two carriages or wagons valued at $300.00, 2 watches valued at $200.00, 2 clocks valued at $10.00, all gold & silver plate valued at $900.00, all household & kitchen furniture valued at $1,200.00, and cash on hand $750.00. By local standards he was very wealthy. In 1862, his horses were reduced to five, his cattle to seventeen, and his cash to $700.00. There were no slaves and no sheep or hogs. His other personal property remained more or less the same. In spite of heavy foraging by both armies in this area, John Gunnell remained a wealthy man. Coleman had been arrested and imprisoned briefly in the District of Columbia as a southern sympathizer. John, described by General McCall as "a noted leader of the oppressors of Union Men, and agent for the secessionist army" eluded arrest.12 In the U. S. Census of 1870, John Gunnell was listed as a farmer, with real estate valued at $12,500.00 and personal property valued at $1,000.00. Seventy-seven years old, he lived with his neighbor, James O. Tucker. At his death in 1874, his estate inventory catalogs the kind of tools and equipment used by a farmer here at that time. It includes unusual items such as a road scraper, mill stones, and grain fan and lists the often elegant household furnishings room by room. 13."

"She evidently died of a lingering illness as she made her will August 26, 1822. At the beginning of the will she stated that while of sound mind, she is very much afflicted in body. Ann received the house at Gunnells Run from her father's property division along with slaves. the fact that she remained unmarried with such a substantial dowery also indicates a lingering illness. When ann died, she left the house to her brother George and divided her slaves among her brothers and sisters. Other property that she had inherited from both of her parents was also divided among her brothers and sisters. As a comment on the times in which she lived, it is interesting to note that she left her clothes, bed clothes and bed to her sister Catherine."
