Rebekah Travis, b. 1758, d. 21 Oct 1815, Davidson County, NC, buried: 1815,
Daniel cemetery, Alleghany Township. James died 11 Feb 1818, Rowan Cty, NC,
buried: 1818, Alleghany Township atop Hightower Mt. Came to Southern
Davidson County (then Rowan Cty) before the Revolutionary War from the
Potomac Valley. Served as a lieutenant in the 9th NC Regiment during the war
and returned to the area afterward. James and wife Rebekah are buried in the
Daniel family cemetary in Alleghany township atop a mountain (perhaps the one
formerly known as Hightower Mountain although it has been referred to as
Squirrel or Redwine Mountain) about one mile west of Stokes Road on the South
side of Ellis Creek. Rebekah: Rebecca Travis had previously been married to
Jeremiah Ira Adderton, Sr. Jerimiah had a son by a previous marriage
Jeremiah Ira, Jr. who was reportedly born in 1767 and died 1850. Adderton Sr
died sometime before May 3, 1779. Abstracts of The Minutes of the Court of
Pleas and Quarter Sessions Rowan County, NC 1775-1789 Vol. III by Jo White
Linn, copyright 1982 states:

Letters testamentory on sd will issue to Rebecca the widow and relict sole

The marriage bond between James and Rebecca was dated 4 April 1779."In
1747, Jeremiah Adderton and his first wife Ann of Charles County, Maryland
petitioned lawmakers in Annapolis regarding property from Ann's grandfather,
Robert Price." Sources: "Jeremiah Adderton and Some Of His Descendants" by
Richard Walser, Raleigh, North Carolina (privately printed; copy on file at
Davidson County Public Library, Lexington, North Carolina 27292), Rebecca
Travers (Travis) "Assuming that Ann Adderton died during the late 1750's in
Charles County, Maryland where she and Jeremiah had been living, we can then
account for a handed-down story which is rather delightful. First we must
call up a vision of widower Jeremiah, forty-something years old with five
motherless but grown-up children. Yet he is good-looking and personable and
has attracted that attention of neighboring teenager Rebecca Travers (or
Travis; a William Travers had immigrated to Charles County in 1669). When
restless Jeremiah decided to move along south and make a new life for
himself, Rebecca announces that she is in love with the man and will leave
with him. Oh no, say her parents. We will not let you go so far away from us.
And besides, Jeremiah is much too old for you. You will not be permitted to
marry him! But Rebecca is headstrong. On the day when Jeremiah is to board
the ship for the journey down the Potomac River, Rebecca escapes from the
room where she had been confined and runs off towards the wharf. Her parents
are in hot pursuit--close behind the fleeing girl. As she comes to the
landing, the ship is just pulling away. In her last-moment jump to get
aboard, her father grabs hold of her dress. He tears a sleeve from it, but
Rebecca manages to leap onto the deck and into the arms of Jeremiah, who
turns to shout farewell to her sorrowful father holding the empty sleeve."

Hello Mike, As far as I know, there is only one Woodson Daniel of record.
This Woodson was the son of Chesley Daniel of Middlesex Co., Va. He was born
