In Reply to: Father of Joseph McDaniel of Granville, NC and Marlboro, SC by sunny kieffer of 7645

Okay, finding clues that Joseph may be brother, uncle, or maybe even, father of George born about 1755 and Thomas McDaniel born about 1753(Very unlikely he is their father. Joseph's Will doesn't mention either men. Although, he did marry Sarah Fuller between ages 26-34. Could have had an earlier wife)

George and Thomas were Rev War Soliders from NC. There is a Thomas McDaniel in Fishing District, Granville, NC 1786. George married Sarah Earl/es in Granville, NC Sep 8, 1779 (Thomas was best man). Some trees claim he was born in Granville, NC 1755. Jospeh, born b/w 1727-1735 appears in various records as living in Granville, NC. In 1761 he married Sarah Fuller (have seen a tree reference him as "of Cumberland"-though haven't seen any record myself) until 1797. From 1780-1797 dwelt in Epping Forest District, Granville, NC. The only other McDaniel there was his son James.

Joseph, George, and Thomas spent at least a portion of the 1770's decade in Granville, NC.

In 1790, George and Thomas lived in the Cheraws District, Marlboro, SC. (No other McDaniel listed in Cheraws Dist.)

Joseph, George, and Thomas lived in Marlboro, SC in 1800. All over 45 with wives over 45. The only other McDaniel heads in Marlboro, SC 1800 were Alexander (Josephs son), Joseph, Jr. and a "mysterious extra" Joseph over age 45 with a female 26-44, 2f under 10, and 2 males under 10. My Joseph lived "next door" to Thomas.
Who is this Mystery Joseph? Not in Granville or Marlboro 1790.

Big Questions:
DO Joseph, George, and Thomas belong to Daniel McDaniel 1690 Bertie, NC line or John McDaniel 1695 line from King William, VA??

Curious-Found a Daniel McDaniel listed as a Private in the Revolutionary War, Marlboro, SC 1775! Which Daniel is this??

Do the Daniel McDaniel 1690 and John McDaniel 1695 lines join together??? Clue? Saw a message posted refering to the "Rose Diary", "...Daniel was a kinsman of George McDaniel, son of John McDanell a headright of John Goff who was granted land in King William, VA 28 Oct 1720."

Saw another posting of Sudie Rucker Wood's book "See a copy of the records in the McDaniel Bible on pp407 et sec. Not only the bible records but family tradition has always attributed Martha and Margaret Goff as being wives of the two brothers, Henry and George McDaniel. Thus far nothing has disproved the record. John Gough of King William Co. in 1702 brought into this country a Daniel Mac Daniel, who may be the progenitors of George and Henry."

Were there TWO Daniel McDaniel immigrants 1760-1720?? One brought by John Goff/Gough, one an indentured servant to Thomas Brown? What is a headright? Why would John Goff "bring" someone into the country?

I made a copy of every head of household in NC in US Federal Census 1790. I am trying to attribute every cluster to a McDaniel family group, starting with descendants of Daniel 1690 and John 1695. HELP PLEASE!!

Edgecombe-Campbell, Daniel (DANIEL)
Cumberland-Archd, David, John, Katy, Nancy, Rorey, William Gray (DANIEL-Wm Gray and Arch Duncan 1745-sons of James 1729) (Don't know where rest fit)
Granville-Joseph, James
Randolph-Abraham, Abraham, John, Amos, Isaac (JOHN-sons of John 1741)
Rutherford-Alexr II, Jos, Charles
Moore-Daniel, Daniel, John, Milley
Orange-Daniel, Eli, James, James, John, John (JOHN)Eli-son of John 1720)
Richmond-Alexr, James, Daniel, Daniel, William
Rowan-Allin, James
Chatham-Arthur, Jacob, James, John, Marey, Samuel
Burke-Jno, Samuel, Tempe
Rockingham-Jas S

Joseph, George, Thomas seemed to travel and live together.
From the Mr. Alfred Parish recollections of Marlboro County history 1897, he mentions "The McDaniel family...about a hundred years ago. In Beauty Spot were Thomas, Joseph, and Mrs. James Cook... In Hebron was George, with several sons, William, Fred, and Thomas McDaniel." (Anyone heard of a "Toler McDaniel" who lived on road from Beauty Spot to Cheraw in Marlboro, SC? Haven't found any other mention of this guy.)
Which female McDaniel is "Mrs. James Cook"? A sister?

More clues-
A Sarah (McDaniel?) married an unknown McDaniel, then married a Joseph Coshnahan. Their son, Joseph Coshnahan was born in Barnwell, SC.
An Alexander McDaniel died in Burke, GA 1806. There are messages and notes about his having given power of attorney to his sister Sarah living in Barnwell, SC. Other notes mention this Alexander McDaniel had a brother Joseph who married Sarah Fuller. Alexander also had several 1/2 sisters.
Still other notes attribute children George, Thomas, and Sarah to the first marriage of Sarah (McDaniel)McDaniel Coshnahan.
CRAZY! However, If A=B, and B=C, then A=C, Ha! If these loose clues are accurate. It would make Sarah the brother of my Joseph. It would make my Joseph the uncle of George and Thomas.

Hope somebody out there can help clear this path.

My Joseph was born 1727-1735 in NC. He and Sarah Fuller were the parents of James abt 1762, Joseph abt 1762-66, Sarah 1765, Alexander M (My Ancestor)1766, John Standard 1784, Anne Fuller 1795.

I haven't come across an "Alexander" in the John 1695 line. There are several in the Daniel 1690 line.
Sarah's father was Henry Fuller. I haven't heard of them naming a son for him. Or, any sons named Daniel, George, or Thomas. Joseph could be named for Joseph Sr., Where do James and Alexander M come from? John "Standard" is an interesting name. Has anyone heard of a Standard ancestor amoung either McDaniel clan??

Grateful for all of the tidbits, messages, and clues posted!
