Hi, Suzanne and all,
"I don't want to take up the time of the the "cousins" who aren't
interested in this line."
Suzanne, I'm one of those collateral cousins and would be very interested in knowing
more, and your posting the info will help future researchers!
A few years back when you were gathering info I had some on Samuel and Elizabeth that I
posted for you. That was when I was working on finalizing the documentation back to Msex
for these lines. I didn't track forward on Josiah's line very far then, so I
didn't have a solid overview of your line, but I've been grinding down on the
Granville NC records more in the last couple years, working on various mysteries and
I would be very grateful to learn how the link is shown from William H. of Wilkinson GA to
Samuel and Elizabeth (Holloway) Daniel of Granville, especially in terms of overcoming the
GA census where William H. seems consistently to show he's b. GA and that his parents
were too. I think I remember you posting that William H. probably died in Wilkinson, but
isn't the William (b. May 1827) in 1900-1910 in Emanuel Co living with son Robert F.
(b. 1876-7) your guy? The wf Sallie in 1900 may be a 2nd wf (only md 34 years but 10 chn
born, 8 lvg, which seems to fit the earlier cenus). If you are able to eliminate them
I'd sure appreciate hearing about the track on it. There doesn't seem to be
another Robert b.ca 1876 in the census to split these into two different Roberts as sons
of two different Williams, so they sure look the same to me.
Back in Granville, between the census and tax lists, I had come in the last couple years
to think Samuel and Elizabeth's William H. had probably died by 1840. In the 1840
census Samuel's girls all line up perfectly using Samuel's Bible entries, but
there's a missing boy in the 10-15 column - only one is listed when there should be
two ("Jasby" and William H.). If the family layout on Irby "Jasby"
Baker Daniel is accurate then he's alive and that would be him. The possible answers
for the missing son are just about impossible to document, so if you have info about
what's going on, I'd love to know what happened there.
Census is not enough, but the tax lists don't show a William coming of age or coming
active who can belong to Samuel and Elizabeth. They show William Henry "Buck"
Daniel s/o Chesley and Lucy Noblin, b. 30 Oct 1827 coming on right next to Chesley in
1849. Then there's William (he's William O.) who I'm pretty sure is son of
Elijah and Lucy Cavendish, b. ca1832 coming on in 1854 next to what are likely his uncles
and later always near Elijah. Finally there's the William H. son of Willis and
Elizabeth (Ellis) Daniel, b. Jun 1831; he comes on late in the lists next to his father in
1856, but there are two William H.'s in 1855 and I think one is Willis' hanging
out in another district and then settling near his father.
The upshot of all the tax description is asking what your records show in terms of Samuel
and Elizabeth's William H. going to GA before or as he came of age? Is there some GA
record naming his parents that you can help with? Anyway, would love to hear what your
research shows as far as proving the tie to Granville.
As always, the big question is do you have a male Daniel to do a DNA test? I recall that
Daniel is your middle or maiden name, so hopefully you have a close relation who could
test - that would sure help put it all to bed, and it's another way to help future
Regards to all on this thread!
