I do not know if this issue was ever settled out to the satisfaction of some of the
reseachers .....BUT this is my direct lineage and have spent much time sorting,
collecting and evaluating ..... Elias Daniel (Elizabeth Pearce) and Aaron Daniel, Jr.
(Mary Stanaland) were indeed brothers, with the indicated wives.
Most of my paper records are packed currently in boxes and I do not have time to dig them
back out ...even though I had them transcribed and scanned previously and then lost to
hard drive and backup failures, I will have to tell you where the originals are if one is
so inclined to track them back down.
Elias Daniel and Elizabeth, sold holdings in Bulloch, and then moved into a section of
Tattnall. I suspect that Elizabeth may have been a second wife, but that is just my
personal theory that I will not expound upon here..... AARON DANIEL, JR. and wife Mary
Stanaland likewise moved to TATTNALL .....
When Aaron Daniel, Jr. died in TATTNALL prior to 1830, MY ancestor, Aaron's nephew,
ISAAC DANIEL (CELIA PARKER), son of Elias, was appointed as executor to the estate, as
per the request of the will. All of these records are on file in TATTNALL.
Regarding AARON, JR. being the spouse of Mary Stanaland. Bulloch Records indicate Aaron
and Mary (marriage book A - page 16) .. The oral will entered into record in BULLOCK Co.
by SUSANNAH STANALAND, specifies AARON DANIEL, husband of Mary, was NOT to inherit
anything. Apparently Aaron had been a little bit of a scoundrel of a husband .....Will
book B - Page 49-50. So if Neil is indeed used on any original record, then unless an
error, he would also be Aaron Neil Daniel ......
Now regarding another Aaron .... Elias and Elizabeth had a son, Aaron Daniel (b. 1798),
who married Mary Anderson .... they had 10 children. - Tattnall Records
Hope this wil help clear at least this issue .... There are more Aarons that appear, and
many are part of this same family group.....
