Was researching the children of Joseph Daniel sr. of Brunswick b.circa 1725 d. 1794 particularly his daughters ,Dinah (Dinney) married John Barrow ,they had 5 children ,one was Millie , born (guestimation) 1788 +/- She was still underage in 1806 ,in 1814 the marriage records show a Millie Barrow marrying a Thomas Daniel ,now the questions are ,is this the same Millie and which Thomas Daniel is this ?
I can pretty much rule out Joseph jr's son Thomas, as he would have been only 16 in 1814 and a good 10 years younger ,so not likely to be him . Thomas Daniel son of Joseph sr. was already deceased and the order books ,both for the suit where the children of Thomas sue the administrator of Thomas' estate ,and the suit where the children of Joseph sr, sue to settle Elizabeth Potts (Daniel) estate ,neither one mentions a son Thomas for the Thomas son of Joseph sr. . So who was this Thomas ?
After reading 7 pages that a very nice man sent me, I find Tillman listed as the orator in a complainant case against Reubin Westmoreland. Peyton Daniel is mentioned as his father. Hurrah! Peyton died in 1799, in Brunswick Co, VA.
Sorry, I was wrong about Reuben Westmoreland. He m Mrs. Elizabeth Daniel, wife of the deceased Payton Daniel. Reuben's will is in Davidson Co, TN. After he died, Elizabeth went to Giles Co, TN with Tillman. After her death, Tillman was the guardian of Jesse, Laban and Martha. They were children from Reuben's first marriage. He had an older son William G.
Kevin thanks for posting a better explanation to my poor attempt. Persuading the terminal haplogroup method for family connections is like burning the candle at both ends. Since I had achieved my terminal haplogroup, R-JFS0234, I joined the R1b-U198 project in an attempt to find those family members that may match. When I first joined I was the only person in the subgroup DF93 > JFS0009 but now there is 23 individuals. Three of the individuals have Daniel ancestors from North Carolina. Many of those individuals are in the Daniel DNA project and of course some are not. There are many different surnames but the important thing they are all related in some capacity. I have built a partial family tree joining some of the members but failed to connect to my family tree because of the distant European connection. I guess it is just a study that may go nowhere or someone may add some per ferial or collateral information to make some discovery possible. I do not always do the challenge just for me because I am the end of the line in my family. If you are interested in R1b-U198 information it is available at https://www.familytreedna.com/public/U198?iframe=yresults
I know that I do not meet the exact criteria of the Daniel project as my original name is Donnell but feel as though I am an orphan and do not know where I belong. The other haplogroups that I have a direct relationship with are under the R-JFS0009 are:
and of course R-M269 and R-U198
This may or may not help someone but I hope it may.
Well, add my name to the cane crowd. I don't do much genealogy anymore but yesterday I found a will/probate for Peyton Daniel of Brunswick. I have been looking for the father of Tillman R. Daniel for 37 years. In this document were listed the persons to inherit Peyton's estate. They are as follows: Widow Elizabeth, Tillman Daniel, Maryann Daniel (guardian Grief Tally), estate of Theoderick Daniel, deceased, and Reuben Westmoreland. The dates were 2 December 1812 and 2 July 1813.
The will does not list them as his children but it seems a pretty good guess.
The Daniels and Westmorelands moved to Giles Co, TN. After Reuben Westmoreland's death, Tillman was appointed as the guardian for Rueben's sons. Some people list Elizabeth Abernathy as the wife of Reuben but seems likely to me that she was a Daniel.
Any thoughts welcome. Does anyone know about Peyton Daniel?
Freda Daniel, wife of Tillman Moody Daniel, Jr.
Does anyone have proof as to the ancestry of Thomas "Coleman" Daniel
who is said to have married 1) Sarah Randal and 2) Sarah Burney? Thomas
never appears in records with a middle name or middle initial. His wife
is named as Sarah in his will (Georgia, Greene County, Will Book E page
118). I find no convincing proof of the surnames of his wives.
There is a biography of him here, but there is correct and incorrect
information in it:
The email address for James Harrison at the top of the document is no
longer good. Some of his sources are problematic.
Thomas' daughter did marry a Coleman, but both the Caroline and
Cumberland Daniels, which are unrelated, married into the same Coleman
family. Not sure the Colemans of Greene County were related to them.
William Daniel Jr. of Caroline County who married Elizabeth Coleman
never had the title "Captain" as far as I have found. The first proved
use of a middle name for this family was in early 19th century.
Still, there is plenty of room in the family of William Daniel and
Elizabeth Coleman for more children than are known. Some of the
Caroline Daniels did move to Georgia. William Daniel, son of Elijah and
Mary Hawes Daniel, settled in Wilkes County, GA where he left a will
made in 1792 and proved in 1796. He was in Georgia by the 1780s and
I have not found any descendants of Thomas "Coleman" Daniel.... I would
be interested in doing a Y DNA test if any can be located.
I have often wondered if my Daniel/Donnell family in Prince Edward County may be in some way connected to the Daniel family's in Brunswick County. I have studied the Daniel families which have have been exposed under a umbrella of names such as Donnell, Donaldson, Daniels, and other forms. The tool that I use to distinguish between the families and their real family relationships is the use of haplogroup. I sought out my own personal haplogroup, R-JFS0234, in an effort to join together my DNA family members in an effort to further more ancient family. This only works if individual also complete their haplogroup to find their own personal haplogroup. I have found a number of Daniel Project members that are in my family structure and I am sure they are not aware of our connection and their may be more. I should also state there is a common family relationship to the Donnell family in North Carolina thru the haplogroup study. Not may individuals use it but it is available with help from other projects. I find it a very truthful or reliable source as it follows the YDNA’s host. To reach your own personal haplogroup it takes study and additional SNP testing. If you have a haplogroup of R-M269 you are very loose of making connection or a comparison with other haplogroup members. The R-M269 is dated about 10,000 years ago. You need to bring your haplogroup very much more into the present for a forth while study. This may give you something to think about and a tool in finding your true family.

The above Pdf is for what I believe to be my Daniel Family down from the Brunswick Co., Va., linages. Now Kevin and I have some reservations about some families, their children and possible placements. In the beginning It was my thought that my Daniel family was in the William Daniel of Caroline group but it is not so.
We establish 3 sons as children of one Immigrant John Daniel.
Hugh Daniel - Virginia Land Grants, Deed Book 6, Brunswick Co., Va., Hugh Daniel 30 Mar 1743. GRANTEE Daniel, Hugh. grantee. DATE 30 March 1743. NOTE Location: Brunswick County. NOTE Description: 392 acres on both sides of Poplar Creek. NOTE Source: Land Office Patents No. 20, 1741-1743 (v.1 & 2 p.1-566), p. 506 (Reel 18] Deed by Hugh Daniel and wife Ann for 150 acres on Popular Creek, 1 November 1744.
Brunswick Co., Deed Book John Daniel and Hugh Daniel June 1748.
John Daniel -According to the papers of William McC. Pritchett, John Daniel Sr., of Brunswick Co., VA., was born in England. According to 3 family reports (William H. autobiography, handwritten paper by James O., and Richard T.' obituary), they descended from Scotland._rd). If he was a true immigrant, John would not be the son of James the First of Essex Co, Va.?
Peter Daniel - 12/08/1746 3 257 Feb. 5, 1746/7 Peter Daniel of St. Andrews Parish, Brunswick Co., to Isaac Howze of same, for 6 Pounds 10 Shillings, one certain parcel of land of a survey of 532 acres near Crab-louse Run, divided by the Brunswick surveyor where Howze's new line strikes mine.

If someone has contrary information feel free to send it to me in reasonable order. We are still chewing on Daniel placement possibilities and I do personally have al the answers.
I do not plan to dig into this land of possible confusion any further. I will correct obvious errors. At 86 yog I am on down the road toward forgetfulness which we all get as a prize for living so long.
Have you been able to locate a person with Bruswick lintage that has been test with the YDNA? Equally more important what is that individuals haplogroup? The answer to these questions may guide you to what you are looking for.
I have been researching all of the family lines that are DNA matches to see where and when they converge ,so far some success. There are 12 lines that are matches on the DanielDNA project, I have researched 11 of them,the twelfth one I found some info on today and even though I haven't researched that line yet ,what was available from the projects participating lines tell me who that line connects to.
Two lines can be connected back to Brunswick through Frederick Daniel b1755 and Tilman R Daniel b. abt.1790 ,Tilman can be placed in Brunswick through the order books ,his potential (probable ) father was a Peyton Daniel who also can be placed in Brunswick via the order books . In Frederick's application for a Revolutionary war pension he states his birth place as Brunswick co. VA. These two lines make a couple other connections more probable , Harrison Daniel of Surry NC and later Indiana is most likely the same as the Harrison Daniel b.abt 1802 in Brunswick ,son of Joseph Daniel jr. -son of Joseph Daniel sr. of Waqua Creek . Thomas Daniel a brother to Joseph Daniel jr. can be potentially connected to Cole Spencer Daniel (Montgomery TN) through Thomas' son Hezekiah ,this connection has been long thought to be correct, maybe the DNA helps solidify it. Two other lines coming up through a David Daniel (LA) to Littleton Daniel (NC) who's father is a Isham Daniel of Chatham NC who has long been suspected as being the same as the Isham of Brunswick . More research will be needed but I think I am on the right track
