Could someone please help me find information regarding an acquistion regarding a drowning of William Daniel Sr. in Powhatten county, VA. in the year of 1790. I imagine it would be in the Powhaten court records. We are desperatley trying to find out more information on each of these Daniels. We think the court records could reveal further information on how they connect to each other.
Edward was in Powhatan, VA in 1790 when a William Sr. drown, others listed in this document were: Edward, William Jr., Stephen and Henry Daniel. Edward was working on the dam when this accident happened. This William Sr. could have been his brother, uncle or father. Just don't know yet. But I am confident they were all related.
Also the surname of Merritt and Cox, Henry Daniel married Judith Cox. But I am more interested in the acquistion that took place over the death of William Daniel Sr. I have limited funds, but would be very happy to pay for the copying cost and postage.
Just any information regarding these Daniels would be very much appreciated. Vickie Lomon
