On the Daniel-Randolph connection. I visited Brandon Plantation on the
James River some years ago. On the wall of the dining room were two
paintings, one of Vivion Daniel and the other his wife, Lucy Randolph. I
have tried for years to find out if a member of that family left VA for a NC
or SC ending up in Emanuel CO, GA in the late 1700's or early 1800's. My
grandfather, James Nixon Daniel, who was the grandson of William and Betsy
Watts Daniel of Emanuel CO, GA .named my mother, Vivian, and her sister,
Lucy. I feel there is a connection but can't find it.
Vivion Daniel's marriage to Lucy Randolph is in several records of VA
Daniels I have read.

My ancestor, Amanda F. E. Daniel b. 20 Feb 1814 in Campbell County, KY;
3 August 1882 in Pendleton County, KY; daughter of Garrett Daniel and
B. (Nancy) Daniel, was supposedly a descendant of Pocahantas. Her
ancestors were from Virginia and Carolina long prior to its sale to the
King of England and its division into North and South Carolina, perhaps as
early as 1650, when the settlement was made near Edenton by emigrants from
I have also heard that the connection was through the Mayfield family.
Peter Daniel b.1764 in Louisa County, VA. m. Jane Ann Mayfield 15 August
1788.m Jane Ann Mayfield was born 1753, daughter of Abraham Mayfield and
Mary Ann (Polly) White.
I have never found anything to substantiate this.
If you find out anything about it, I would love to hear!
