Re: Antoinette Jane Daniel m. 1) William C. Waites , 2) Lawrence Washington Dumas

Lawrence Washington Dumas born February 12, 1823 in Greenville County, South Carolina and died September 10, 1865 in Magnolia Ferry, Anderson County, Texas at age 42 years, 6 months, and 28 days – buried Old Magnolia Ferry, Anderson County, Texas; he married first Susannah ‘Susan’ E. Acker Garrison born April 30, 1814 in Greenville County, South Carolina and died May 10, 1848 in Rusk, Cherokee County, Texas at age 34 years and 10 days - married August 07, 1834 in South Carolina. They had 5 children between 1836 and 1846. When Susan died their children were ages 2, 4, 6, 9, and 12 years.

“Rusk, Cherokee County, Texas, Mrs. Susan E. Dumas, aged 34 years and 10 days, consort of L. W. Dumas and daughter of Charles and Frances Garrison. As a child she was kind and dutiful, as a sister, wife and mother, beloved honored and respected. She had been an orderly and most exemplary member of the Baptist Church for three years.”

Lawrence married second (Mrs.) Antoinette Jane Daniel Waites born April 06, 1822 in Madison County, Georgia and died December 06, 1862 in Magnolia, Montgomery County, Texas at about age 40 years and 8 months– buried Old Magnolia Ferry, Anderson County, Texas – they married January 10, 1850 in Cherokee County, Texas. They had 6 children born between 1850 and 1862. Antoinette apparently died of childbirth complications, leaving Lawrence with children ages: newborn, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12, and by first wife Susan children age 16, 19, 22, 24 and 26 years.

Antoinette had married first William C. Waites (some say Wait or Waits) born about 1820 – they married about 1839.

The parents of Antoinette Daniel were: William C. Daniel born 1800 (some say between 1792 and 1802 or 1798) in Madison County, Georgia (some say Elbert County – next to Madison County); married Frances Eliza Hackney born about 1795 – married September 12, 1820 in Madison County, Georgia.

Looking for more information on William C. Waites and family and Antoinette's parents and their families. Any help appreciated,
