I was trying to wait and see if I could find any proof - I believe that
I've figured out this Daniel line & I've found another descendent of John M.
Daniel who I've been e-mailing, her name is Barbara Daniels (yes with an
like you). I think their parents were Amos Daniel and Mary Fenn dau of
Zacharia Fenn.(Although Zacharia's Will was registerd in Jefferson Co., GA -
he had lived in Washington Co., GA and left that property to his widow.)
Amos had be in Washington Co., GA since about 1794, when he served on a
Grand Jury - which puts him in place for the births of James and Alexander.
I have no doubts. The more I research, the more I find colateral families
around this Daniel line in GA - the more I find that their families are in
Monroe Co., AL too. This Daniel line connects back from Amos, son of
Nathan Daniel who died in Putnam Co., GA abt 1809, Nathan's parents were
Joseph Daniel and Sarah Barnes. I think most of the other Daniel's lines in
Monroe Co. are part of the Simon Daniel line out of Edgecomb Co., NC.
This includes the William Daniel b. 1797 in NC and his wife Susannah
Sawyer - the naming pattern is very distinct with the use of Simon, Joseph,
Stephen, Elias, and even Alexander. So, when I thought that your Alexander
was in Shelby Co, Al in 1870, it was really another Alexander - a John
Alexander Daneil of this same line. This part of the line is from Lewis
Daniel and Terisa Barnes - Lewis being the son of Joseph. This line seems
to be around LaFayette, Chambers Co., AL.
And, this is also the same Daniel line that settled in Conecuh Co. - near
Burnt Corn which is near the border between counties. Yes, we've always
hear that our Daniel lived in Burnt Corn - but they didn't. Burnt Corn was
the Post Office on the east border. Our families lived south of Claiborne
near the Alabama River which was the west border between Clarke & Monroe -
closer to todays Monroeville.
I also believe that William James Daniel who married Angelina Norris and
migrated to Santa Barbara, State of Sao Paulo, Brazil along with my Daniel's
was also part of this line, probably in Chambers Co. They didn't go on the
same voyage - but were neighbors there.
There was also a Drusilla Daniel who's Will was probated in Coosa Co., AL in
1833 by a Watson woman. Supposedly, Drusilla Daniel dau. of Joseph, married
Jesse Bateman. When Drusilla supposedly died, this Bateman married a Watson
& they lived in Chambers Co. I think that there is something connecting
here - but, can't figure out the relationship.
When many citizens of AL including Monroe migrated to Union Co., Ark &
Ouchita Parish, LA (they are across the river from each other, I understand)
a John Daniel b. 1818 in GA who married Martha Barnes b. abt 1825 in AL,
migrated with them. When John Daniel died, Martha married Peter Davis.
Peter was the brother of Lydia Davis, wife of my James Daniel.
As soon as I get this all down in my computer I'll ship you and Dianne a
copy. Take Care.
