Dear Sir or Madam,
I am replying to this many long years after the fact but this is the first time I've
seen it. I descend from this Woodson Daniel. He married Nancy Harris, dau of Rev War
Captain Jesse. They had 8 children: Travis b. 21 Feb 1806, Frances (Fanny) b. 3 Jun
1808,Nancy b. 5 Aug 1809, Julia Ann b. 22 Jun 1812, Thomas H. . 24 Feb 1814, Woodson b.
Oct 1818, an unknown child b. 1819 and Cicero Murphy Daniel b. 1823.
Woodson Daniel was a majistrate at the time Davidson County was formed from Rowan County
in 1822. When Davidson County was formed it was divided into five voting districts
(Hanes, Hampton, Lexington, Ward and Daniel). The Daniel District included all of
southern Davidson County. The Daniel Precinct was later divided into Silver Hill, Emmons,
Alleghany, Jackson Hill and Healing Springs towmships.
Nancy and Woodson Daniel are buried at Lick Creek Church in Healing Springs in Southern
Davidson County. Their graves are beneath the 2 unlettered markers beside the graves of
Woodson Daniel, Jr. and his wife. Woodson died sometime before 1830 and not sure when
As you mentioned his father was James Daniel and mother was Rebecca Travers Adderton. They
married in 1779 shortly after Rebecca was widowed by the death of her husband Jeremiah
