"Sorry misspelled subject"

There has been an inquiry about the lineage of William Daniel b. 1798 or 1799 in North
Carolina d. Ark in 1865. I don’t find any evidence that he was a son of Benjamin Woodson
Daniel b. 1749 in Wake Co., NC. While unusual there does not appear to be a son William
in this family nor kindred folks. Benjamin’s statistics are in Wiki Tree and appear to be
Any one care to help with the William Daniel 1798/9 1847 - some help will be
“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a
human experience” Unknown
I like the expression stated above as shared by Kay. The gift of the Holy Spirit is given
at the time of baptism It would be
for me to give a dissertation on the subject in this venue.

> The story of Capt. John Daniel of Wake manages to surface from time to time. Bob sent
me John’s Pension Request and I thought I would share a few things about old John.
> Captain John Daniel has been assigned by Heinemann to Ambrose Daniel of Halifax
County, N. C., as a son, but his date of birth of 1762 would have him born before the
marriage of Ambrose to Sarah Edwards in about 1773. Your compiler assigned John to Woodson
Daniel of Wake County, NC, and his wife Nancy, but a John Daniel of Wake was purchasing
property in Rowan County, NC in 5 Feb. 1778, at a time when the future Captain John Daniel
of Elbert County, Georgia had not reached his 16 th birthday. That John, born about 1755,
is more likely to be the son of Woodson Daniel. Captain John may have been a nephew of
Woodson Daniel so his proper lineage is yet to be discovered.
> (Compiler's Note: I have been reminded that we have now conclusively proved
through land deeds and slave sale records that the John b 1762 was Capt. John Daniel of
Wake/Granville/Elbert, and we have two of his descendants in the DNA project. Their DNA
matches the Woodson Daniel line, not the Ambrose Daniel line.)
> I have much more on this John but will not bore you with DNA Reports, Lineage
mistakes and so on. My brother’s genealogist assigned John to the family of Ambrose
Daniel of Halifax County, quite incorrectly, but it appears that this assignment was an
error of selection. Also, the name John Osborne Daniel surfaces and has nothing to do with
Captain John Daniel of Wake etc., whose father could have been a David Daniel, maybe.
> So why all this information. Thru out history there are family mixups by
professionals and plodders like me. No need to fuss about the early genealogist who have
perpetuated myths - so get on board the DNA train and see if that clears up any mistakes
you may have. Also, new folks will run into incorrect stuff that permeates the ”for Sale”
idolatry so we need to clear up things for their benefit.
