I am Evelyn FAY DANIELS Hansson and I was born in Mounds, Pulaski County, Illinois. I had
many ancestors who settled in southern Illinois and am doing research for those
My paternal surnames are:
Charles D. Hathaway DANIELS, born 10/02/1869 in North Carolina, married 04/20/1892 in
Pulaski County, IL. and died and buried 10/29/1940 at Mounds, Pulaski County, IL. Charles
D. Hathaway DANIELS married Elizabeth "Lizzie" CLANTON who was born --/--/1875
in Pulaski Co., IL and died 06/09/1939 and is buried in Mounds, Pulaski Co. IL. There were
15 children in this family and one daughter is still living. Ancestors of Charles DANIELS
were DANIEL without an s. Probably Charles DANIELS added the s to his name. My father was
Raymond DANIELS, son of Charles and ELizabeth CLANTON DANIELS.
Father of Charles D. Hathaway DANIELS was John Lewis DANIEL(no s) born --/--/1839 in
Claiborne County, TN. Married 02/08/1864 to Nancy Manerva DANIEL DANIEL. Nancy Manerva
DANIEL DANIEL was the daughter of John Washington DANIEL and his wife Louisanna Mayes.
John L. DANIEL and Nancy Manerva DANIEL are buried in Pulaski Co., IL. Nancy Manerva
DANIEL DANIEL was a first cousin to John L. DANIEL. John L. DANIEL was also married to #2
wife, Nancy ? born in Kentucky in 1845 (she was MY great-grandmother.) #3 wife was Mary
ANGLIN and #4 wife was Eliza MAUPIN. I believe these 4 wives are buried in Pulaski CO.,
IL. He had several children by the wife #1 and wife #2, one son by wife #3 and no children
with wife #4. On the day John L. DANIEL married Wife #4; Eliza MAUPIN; he was shot and
killed by her father who was taken from the jail and hanged by a masked mob. Would anyone
know of a newspaper article or magazine that documented that event on July 22, 1885?
We also would welcome any information for Nancy (unknown) DANIEL who was born in Kentucky
in 1845, place of birth, parents, where and when married etc.
Father of John L. DANIEL was Joseph DANIEL, born 05/11/1818 in Grainger, Claiborne Co.,
TN, married 01/25/1838 in Tennessee to Levisa GREENLEE, born --/--/1819 in TN. Joseph
DANIEL died 15/09/1863 and is buried at Cumberland Ford, KY (now Pineville, Bell County,
Kentucky.) Levisa GREENLEE DANIEL died at home in Laurel Bridge, Kentucky on 08/29/1897.
Wives of the DANIEL men were: GREENLEE, CLANTON, SPENCE, AUBERT, IRVINE, STYMEST, ECHOLS,
etc. We have more information for Edward DANIEL SR. and Edward DANIEL JR. but no
information as to who the parents of Joseph DANIEL were.
I have posted these before but have beem asked to repost my surnames for new members to
the list who may have not seen my previous posting.
