Irish Daniels, always with an "s" on the surname. I believe that Josephus
was a notorious "bigot" but his beliefs were not frowned on at that time.

I thought this was interesting.
Daniels, Frank Arthur (9 Sept. 1858-15 Apr. 1939), jurist, was born in
Washington, N.C., the eldest son of Josephus and Mary Cleaves Seabrook
Daniels, both of families of English descent long settled in eastern North
Carolina. With the coming of the Civil War, Josephus Daniels, a Whig and
Union man who did not believe in slavery or secession, remained a
noncombatant but worked as a skilled carpenter in the Confederate
in Wilmington. Later he moved to New Bern and sent his family as refugees
from the Union-occupied area to Ocracoke Island. In early January 1865,
while on a mission of relief to old friends in Washington, N.C., he was
wounded when a small group of Georgia troops fired on the noncombatant
vessel on which he was traveling. He died in New Bern on 28 Jan. 1865
