You mentioned two distinct DNA groups as part of the same Josiah hunt:
1. The Josiah Daniel of NC Granville whose son James Key Daniel almost surely has son
Josiah based on DNA and other good evidence, just missing the one clincher. This group is
haplogroup I1 and is the VA Middlesex Daniel line. Georgia is hunting this Josiah md. Mary
2. The Hiram, Plummer, Robert C. Daniel group of NC Buncombe/Rutherford and on. This group
is haplogroup R1b1b2. Clay is the main public member of this group.
There seem to be two other Josiahs born in the right time frame you mentioned, but they
are also of other DNA groups: the son of William Daniel and Betsy Watts, and the son of
William Daniel and Sarah Self.
Just making sure there's no confusing the Josiahs of early 1800s. Need more
description of which elusive Josiah you're referring to.

According to some records James Key Daniel had an unidentified son
who fits the period 1810 - 1829 in Caswell Co., NC? Could this unidentified son be Josiah
Daniel (1743-1811)? James Key and Sarah Brown Daniel had another unidentified son who was
most likely George B. Daniel. There are a number of DNA matches in the suspected line of
Josiah Daniel so any little bit of missing info would help place Josiah in Caswell
County, NC. Also, a Robert C. Daniel is prominent in this DNA roundup along with his
brother Plummer and a Hiram Daniel is in the mix.
I know that this search has gone on before but maybe someone can help place Josiah in the
family of James Key Daniel of Caswell Co., NC.
