Vickie, thanks for the informative reply. I have discovered that the 1790 &
1800 Virginia federal census has been lost and is not available, unlike
North Carolina. However, I did find a 1790 Henry Co Va tax list, which
Personal Tax Book A, page 5:
Apr 27: Daniel, Edward 1 tithe, no blacks, horses & cattle unreadable
May 22: Daniel, John 1 tithe, no blacks, horses & cattle unreadable
Personal Tax Book B, page 5:
March 29: Daniel, Nehemiah 1 tithe, no blacks, 2 horses & cattle
The two tax books are obviously done by two different tax
assessor/collectors, probably for different districts. The dates are
important too, as I found my Kimsey folks in Book B, all on the same day. So
we can assume that your Edward did not live next door to John.
The 1800 Henry Co Va tax list is more detailed as it shows the amount of tax
assessed, which looks to be 44 cents per black over 12, and 12 cents per
On Mar 31, 1800, Edward Daniel is assessed 92 cents for 1 white tithe, 1
black tithe (over 16), and 4 horses.
On Apr 23, 1800, John Daniel is assessed no tax for 2 white tithes, no
blacks, and no horses.
Edward & John are the only Daniel's shown in the 1800 Henry Co tax list.
As for Brunswick Co Va, in the 1788 tax list I find a John & Ann Daniel
living close, and another group of Thomas, Joseph, Jesse (?), Joseph Jr.,
and Robert Daniel living close to each other.

Clay, at one time on the census in Patrick county, George Daniel had an
Edward Daniel living with him, we believe this is his son, Edward Daniel who
married Polly Consolvent in Patrick county, Va. Possible related to Our
Edward Daniel who married Ann, he's a possible newphew, some people think
the John Daniel listed on the census is John Daniel Sr. who was in Brunswick
county, VA. The Immigrant Daniel Line, but this line needs to be researched

Subject: [DANIEL-L] Henry Co Virginia
Trying to track my Hiram Daniel back from Buncombe & Rutherford Co in
western North Carolina where he lived from 1799 to after 1810 before moving
to Tennessee. Since he is not related to Leonard Daniel who moved to
Rutherford Co from Granville Co NC, I thought I should investigate the
migration of a collateral family who are also my ancestors, the
Kinzey/Kimsey folks who moved to western NC from Henry Co Virginia.
In the 1782 Henry Co Virginia Personal Property Tax List, we find these
three Daniel households:
Name Tithes Negroes Horses Cattle
George Daniel 1 - 3 5
John Daniel 1 - 4 7
Reuben Daniel 1 3 4 7
Does anyone claim these folks or is anyone researching them? I'm
particularly interested in John as Hiram names his first apparent son John
A. Daniel born about 1790. Does anyone have access to the 1790 Henry Co Va
census and can do a lookup for the DANIEL folks listed there? Also, since
Patrick Co was formed (pending) out of Henry Co in 1790, (effective 1791),
was there a separate 1790 Patrick Co Va census?
We estimate our Hiram Daniel was born between 1766-1774 based on census
records, so he was not likely an immigrant. As you might suspect from
reading the Old Testament or Masonic lore, Solomon is also a big name in our
