Everyone with an interest in the Robert C. Daniel family of Bedford Co Tenn needs to go to
their public library and see if they can find:
Bedford County, Tennessee Family History Book
published 2002 by Turner Publishing
Look on page 266. You will see an article titled "Robert C. Daniel Family" by
Evelyn (Daniel) Van Meter. Evelyn inherited the old R.C. Daniel family Bible and probably
did more than anyone to research our Robert C. Daniel family line.
Also read carefully the article that follows on the same page titled "Plummer
Daniel" written by Jerry W. Murphy.
Dear Cousin Evelyn showed me the grave of Robert C. when we visited in late 2003. She too
believed that Robert was a son of Joseph & Elizabeth Daniel. You may also want to see
her article in the book:
Heritage of Moore County Tennessee 1871-2004
published 2005 by Walsworth Publishing
You will enjoy her articles on pages 158, 159, & 161 (Articles 421, 423, & 427).
Evelyn believed the Jack Daniel story. Unfortunately Evelyn passed away last month, and
I'm sure she carried her felief to her grave. Evelyn will be missed. She was a
wonderful person and treated me and my wife like family.
You may also want to visit Jerry W. Murphy's website:
and in particular:
Cousin Jerry Wayne's Mom was a Daniel and descendant of Plummer Daniel.
If you aren't confused enough by now, we have a cousin Jim Daniel, good friend of
Faron's, whose paternal Daniel line is from the Joseph & Elizabeth Daniel family
and maternal Daniel line is from Plummer Daniel.
The search goes on, and I welcome new cousins to help with this search.
