Yes, I am researching Tilman R. of Chickasaw Co., MS. He is my husband's
ggggrandfather. We have just returned from a trip to Pulaski, Giles Co,
TN. T. R. moved to Pisgah Ridge in Giles abt 1810. It is a beautiful
place and the people were so nice to help us. He came there from
Davidson Co, TN, where he m Mary Nicholson, 30 Oct 1816. Previously, he
had m Nancy Lucy in Warren Co, NC 29 June 1812.
There was a Peter Daniel in Warren Co, NC m Jean Mayfield 15 Aug 1788.
He possibly could be T. R.'s father. The dates would be right. T. R.
named his son Theophilus P. Wish I knew what the P. stands for. The
Mormon site gives Peter's family as the Daniels from Middlesex Co, Va
and says he d in KY aft 1850. There is a Peter Daniel on the Ky 1850
census who is 86.
There was also a Peter Daniel who lived and d in VA.
In checking my records I find Enoch Daniel m Susan L. Rayner, 20 Feb
1848 in Shelby Co, TN. They were on the 1850 census and an Enoch Daniel
on the 1850 Pontotoc MS census. Enoch was b in NC.
Alexander O. Daniel was on the Giles Co, TN 1850 census. He was 34 with
The Daniel family moved to Chickasaw Co, MS abt 1840. I do not know the
brothers of T. R. We also went there on our trip but found nothing new.
Anyone see any connections?
