What you have to be careful with is that there were several James Daniels in the
Albemarle, Goochland, Cumberland area. My guess is the Albemarle will you read was dated
about 1761. This was not James Daniel that married Elizabeth Woodson (the marriage is
also very difficult to prove).
For my own position I know that James Daniel and William Woodson, brother of Elizabeth
jointly patented some property in Goochland County. I know that an Elizabeth Daniel was a
witness of the will of Benjamin Woodson, Jr, her supposed brother. Woodson Daniel's
second son was named Benjamin Woodson (and his name my have been BW also but I've
never been able to prove that). This James Daniel outlived James of Albemarle and was
found in Halifax Co., VA as late as 1768. I don't know where or when he died.
I have no record clearly stating Woodson was son of James Daniel and Elizabeth Woodson.
