I thought this synopsis of the 1761 will of a James CAIN of Edgecomb
County, NC was also very interesting because it lists a Charles DANIEL as a
witness to this will and some say a Penelope CAIN was married to a Robert
DANIEL, possibly a Robert T. DANIEL. If so, I would assume this Robert T.
DANIEL would be in some way related to this Charles DANIEL. Just a
