I have seen Jas K listed as Earl K., Earl, E. K. and Jack on several sites. I think a lot
of it came from Family Tree CD - Brøderbund WFT Vol. 7, Ed. 1, Tree #3702, Date of Import:
Apr 6, 1997, according to another researcher who has him listed as Earl K. The letter J in
the census is strange but it can be compared with other names beginning with J and the
similarity is obvious. And I thought I had bad penmanship.
All existing info I have found indicate George and John arrived in 1836. This seems to be
incorrect with the purchase dates in Jackson County. It would also change the estimated
birth date of George as he could not purchase land until he was 21, or so they say.
Additionally it appears that John was buying land in the adjacent counties of Cass, Bates
and Vernon. Jackson, Cass and Lafayette counties join very close to Lone Jack and John was
known to have been in all. Plus he lived in St Charles County, MO; near St Louis and his
aunt was living in Lincoln Count; just north of St Charles. The purchases in Vernon
County, Mo are possibly his too. I believe John also had holdings in Lafayette and Johnson
counties bordering on Jackson county. They obviously were not land patents.
It appears that John was still connected with St Charles County as a John Daniel purchased
land there in 1835 and 1840. Could be another John, who knows.
Is there any chance of getting a copy of Josiah's will or the "H92 George B.
Daniel and wf" with the "rown" added above the B.
I am having absolutely no luck finding information on Jas. K Daniel at this time.
It could be that John and George were reconnoitering the Jackson County area from St
Charles and did some of their land purchasing before moving the family there.
Charles, Cary K and Blevins are not known to me but the fact that much of their lands
border on John and George's parcels it makes one wonder about any family relationship.
Might be interesting to see who they sold their land too.
John must have been a wheeler-dealer when it came to land.
