There is no information on him after the 1920 census on this family web page. However, if
this is your Clyde there is a wealth of information going back 4 generations and has many
It goes back to Allen Daniel, b. 8 Apr 1803, NC; d. 25 Feb 1852 in Farmersville, Collins,
Texas about 45 miles SSE (ATCF) of Sherman, Grayson, TX.
"Written on the historical marker in Huson Cemetery (Farmersville, Collin County,
Allen Daniel and his family came to Texas from Tennessee in 1847. He and his wife
Elizabeth were the parents of eight children. They settled in this area in 1850 and Daniel
purchased 480 acres of land in May 1851. Less than one year later, on February 25, 1852,
he died and was buried on his land. Allen and Elizabeth Daniel's daughter, Tennessee
P. Daniel, was married to D.E.- Huson (Mar 29 1809-Oct 24 1877). Tennessee Huson bought
the family land from her mother in 1875, and it was during her ownership that the property
surrounding her father's grave was given to the community as a public cemetery. It
gradually became known as Huson Cemetery. Those interred in this historic graveyard
include many pioneers of the area, including the Daniel, Huson, Wilcoxson,- and Redwine
families. John Hendrex and William Piunckney Chapman, who are credited with naming the
town of Farmersville, and William Gotcher, who donated land for the town square, are
buried here along with members of th!
eir-families. Also interred here are many former slaves and their descendants, including
the Nelson, Sneed, Glass, and Bryson families. The cemetery contains hundreds of marked
and unmarked graves. (1989)"
I had a Daniel family that moved to Sherman, TX around 1847 from NC by way of Jackson
County, MO and they possibly are loosely related, if in fact this is your line. That
family was George Brown Daniel, son of James Key Daniel of NC.
