I did a very brief search for the Daniel boys and found that a Daniel, John
& Ayres, Mary were married in Fayette County IN 8/11/1825. Also, A Daniel,
Payton and a Embree, Nancy were married 3/24/1825. In the burials at Orange
Cemetery (formerly Fayetteville) that is a John Randolph Daniel, died Jan.
1841; Eliza Daniel, wife of W.J., died 1863, age 59; a W.J. Daniel, died
1880, about 80 years old; and a Mary A. Daniels, wife of W.J., died1877, age
52. I kept seeing the name Wylie Daniels who died 4/5/1880.
Unfortunately, death notices were rather brief that year, "Wylie J. Daniels,
the oldest and one of the most respected citizens of Fayetteville, died at
his home in that village on Monday of old age and general debility." I
threw this tidbit in because in a court record dated May 17, 1847, it
states, "In an entry concerning the insolvent estate of Randolph Daniels
dec. were listed; Martha the widow, ____Daniels, John Daniels, Peyton,
Edward and James Daniels, Elizabeth the wife of Greenberry Steele, Polly Ann
the wife of Aaron Lewis, Nancy Ann the wie of Geo. W. Ginn. The petition was
amended to include Wiley Daniels and Catharine Wilson." I think your
John used Randolph some - have you explored that possibility? In another
court document, "the will of Alexander Ayres dec. was entered June 10, 1833
and recorded Sept 18, 1833." Alexander is probably the father of Mary
Ayres... cuz Paton Daniel was a witness to the will... Likely, yes -
proved, no. But another clue for you... Unfortunately, we have very few
real early newspapers like 1841 and even it we did, J.R.'s obit would
probably read something like, "he died."
