My father was Jack Claude McDaniels; my grandfather was Claude McDaniels. Claude McDaniels had a brother named William, who is still alive, I believe. They are out of Mulliken, between Lansing and Grand Rapids. The cemetery in Mulliken has a grave for Truly Z McDaniels. I always assumed she was a great-great-great aunt. It's my understanding that Claude's mother was part Cherokee.

My mother and father divorced in 1957, and I had very little contact with my father and his family. However, my uncle Don McDaniels is still alive and retired in Florida, I think. He knows quite a bit about the McDaniels family in Mulliken. If you are interested in contacting him, I can track down his address. He was a top salesman at Shaheen Chevrolet in Lansing for a number of years.
