Georgia, Lisa, and Roselyn, also.
I, too, would like to know from whom William H. DANIEL of Wilkerson Co., Georgia descends.
Being correct is always the goal.
You mentioned proofs from many sources that he is the William H. born 17 Sep 1826, named
in the Bible of Josiah DANIEL, as well as being approved and accepted by the DAR -
COLONIAL DAMES, CDXVII CENTURY, and DAUGHTERS OF FOUNDERS AND PATRIOTS OF AMERICAN) Would
you please share the proofs, other than the membership organizations, with us.
If Josiah's is a North Carolina family, was your William H. also born in NC?
One of the others who may be the William H. DANIEL of Wilkinson Co. Ga in 1860 to after
1880 is William Harper DANIEL born 23 May 1827, son of Jesse DANIEL and Mary A. TUCKER of
Baldwin County, Ga. There is circumstantial
evidence to believe this may be true, including his next door neighbor in 1860 Wilkinson
Co. being another of Jesse's sons, Robert T. DANIEL with his wife, Mary J. KINNEY. A
second brother, Rev. John Thomas DANIEL, 39,born 6 July 1820, and wife Lucinda ANGLE are
also listed in 1860 Wilkinson County, 21 pages from William and Robert. Baldwin and
Wilkinson counties are neighbors.
The William H. DANIEL in Wilkinson County, Ga. who married Sarah Ann HATCHER, widow of
George SHINHOLSTER, is listed as being born in Georgia on the 1860 and 1880 census.
Haven't found him in the 1870. He may be in Alabama then with others of his family
who went there and returned to Ga. before 1880.
Side note: There are comments online by some researchers saying that part of
Wilkinson's 1870 census may be missing from the Heritage Quest data base. They say
families known to be there simply aren't listed.
This excerpt from a transcript of the Josiah DANIEL Bible was posted at
by Pam Crane who cited Roslyn as the source
"Page 12 looks like fragments of the book copied. These are probably Samuel's
Jasbey B. Daniel was born 15th day of November 1824
William H Daniel was born 17th of September 1826
Barbrea L. Daniel was Born 17 th obt 1827
Elinder K. Daniel was Born 23 of September 1832
Thomas B. Daniel was born 10th of march 1834
Saml Daniel was maried 2th day of November 1820
Marcy (Marey ?) was born 15th day of November 1821
Elisea L Daniel was Born 9th day of Apriel 1823"
It is worth noting that William H. of Wilkinson County, if this William H., b. 17 Sep
1826, son of Samuel?, apparently did not name any of his children after his parents or his
siblings. Did Samuel leave a Will naming William?
The children of William H. DANIEL and Sarah Ann HATCHER of Wilkinson Co., GA were:
i. Mary M. b. abt 1854
ii. James A. b. 1855
iii. William J. b. 1857
iv. Laura b. abt 1860
v. Anna ("Annah") b. abt 1867
vi. Joseph A. b. abt 1868
vii. Charles W. b. abt 1871
viii. Benjamin Melton b. 1872
ix. Rosa L. b. abt 1875
x. Robert F. b. 1877
In contrast, William Harper's father was Jesse, mother was Mary Ann, siblings were:
James Robert, Joseph Levi, John Thomas, Arthur Reese, Robert Tucker, Martha Ann, Richard
Marion, Louisa Constanza, Annabella Elizabeth, Daniel Harrison, Mackerness Goode, James
R., and Augustus S. Additionally, William Harper's brother, John Thomas had a son
Robert Franklin, b. 1864.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
