Here are some partial census notes to push back a couple generations. You'll want to
look at these yourself to extract the fuller data (i.e. HeritageQuest free through many
local libraries or ancestry.com
1900 VA Bedford
Robert W. and Dora B. and chn Mary Anne and John W, dates fit your info, his father Wm. R.
age 73 lives with them.
You mentioned this father William R. in a post last year.

This is William who md. Sally B. Foster 15 Feb 1825 in Brunswick.
Something weird going on with the Ransom F./William R., one of them doesn't exist in
1840 VA Brunswick
Wm Daniel 40-50, male 10-15 (John W.), male 5-10 (Ransom or William R. or are they the
same and erroneously split in 1850?), male 0-5 (Richard E.), female 30-40 (Sally B.),
female 10-15 (Mary), 2 females 0-5 (Sarah E. and Alice/Alsey F.)
None of the Dan*** households in 1830 Brunswick accomodate the family, but there are
three, maybe four, good possibilities for William Daniel elsewhere:
Halifax p.386 males 1 0 0 0 1, females 1 0 0 0 1
Halifax p.387 males 1 0 0 0 1, females 1 0 0 0 1
Nansemond p.237 males 0 1 0 0 1, females 1 0 0 0 1
Norfolk, p.415 males 0 1 0 0 1, females 2 0 0 0 1
Not my line, just morning warm up. Good luck in your search!
