I am very interested in your post. Can you share the text of the Stewart County will of
BW Daniel? The reason I am so intrigued is that BW's son BW was probably born after
1794 and died in 1827. Stranger things have happened but I don't think he would have
named two sons BW living in the same time frame.
Your Right or Wright Daniel & Hardison likely came out of Martin County, NC along with
Luke & Mark Hardison, brothers out of Martin who married Daniel girls from Martin as
well as David Daniel, brother of Luke Hardison's wife. These Daniel's all descend
from Simon Daniel of Chowan Co., NC.
This family tended to congregate around Leatherwood Creek in Stewart, wheras BW and his
known family were on Hurricane Creek. However, Stewart is so small that probably means
nothing. I however don't believe these folks are related to BW.
I have no idea where Benjamin Woodson Daniel is buried and can't confirm the date he
died. His RW pension record has an entry that says In 1884 sol's granddaughter
Margaret Shaw of Metropolis, ILL stated sol had d. in Feb 1849.
