My Daniel family came from this area. I looked through my records and
didn't find a Mary Elizabeth with a brother Elmer. Could you add a few
details? Who did she marry, where and when did she die? Who did she live
with after being orphaned?
My great-grandmother Mary Elizabeth Daniel was born in
Franklin, GA (Dec. 23, 1858). She was orphaned along with a brother
possibly named Elmer. It seems possible that her father was killed
during The Civil War.
Mary Elizabeth was born with congenital cataracts that left her with
very limited eyesight, a condition that has been present in every
generation since. I cannot help but wonder if vision problems appear in
other branches of the Daniel family. Even with limited sight, she
managed quite well for herself. She played the organ for her church and
became the first piano teacher in Lakeland FL.
If any of you who have researched the Daniel family in Georgia, or Heard
County in general, can offer clues about her family, I'd really love to
hear from you.
All the best,
