>> # 65 7 May 1778 DANIEL, JOHN 200 acres on the N. side of
known by the name of John Warnocks improvement including part of the
island as low as
the mouth of said fall branch<<<
There is a JOHN DANIEL on the 1784-1787 "First" Census of NC, in Surry
Co., that I have not been able to identify further in my search for a
Papa for my old "orphan" Thomas Daniel, b. GA. 1786 in probably Wilkes,
Elbert, Oglethorpe or surrounds, except that most of old 1786 Thomas'
later collaterals and spouse seem to have come from that part of NC.
I have found at least two direct male descendents of old 1786 Thomas, but
getting a DNA from complete strangers, through an intermediary, is not
going so well!!
