Mike's stuff is great as well!
Mike, we may a scenario something like this. If the date of birth for James
Daniel of Nash can be established to be about 1725 (Brunswick) then he may
be the father of Frederick Daniel of Brunswick/Nash who was born 2 Mar 1755.
Also, the Elizabeth "Polly" Daniel born about 1754 was probably the daughter
of James and the sister of Frederick. She married the well traveled Howell
Flewellen, well traveled in the way he was involved in everybody's business.
[13 July 1772 - Howell FLEWELLIN of Halifax Co was deeded land in Edgecombe
Co, NC. 26 Nov. 1778 - Howell was bondsman for the marriage of Elizabeth
POWELL and Frederick DANIEL in Nash Co, NC. Late 1780s - Howell was
administrator for the estate of James DANIEL. 17 Oct 1805 - Howell FLEWELLEN
Estate probated in Nash Co, NC, names wife, Elizabeth and children. His will
mentions his "land an plantation lying on the east side of beaver dam branch
my Hunt plantation and my mill".] Ellen/Flewellen is the same cat!
I have cousin Judy's compilation on Frederick that is 3 inches thick and his
parentage therein is unknown.
Lets look at this statement: [Willie & Lewis were sons of William who
married Sarah who is likely a son of Peter of Brunswick and later Halifax.
Although we don't know much about Frederick we do know from his pension app
that he was from Brunswick Co. and was in Nash when he enlisted. Howell
Allen was executor of James Daniel's Halifax will.]
Now, there was a William Daniel born in Bertie in 1732 who was the son of
Thomas Daniel and Elizabeth Lanier, and he married a Sarah. He had sons
named Lewis and Wiley (Willie) Daniel; any chance there is a mix up here?
The will for William, son of Peter was inventoried in 1792 when he died in
Brunswick Co., Virginia, and the will for William Daniel of Halifax was
signed in 1796 and he died in December 1797 and his estate was inventoried
Gotta run, check on those children?? Payne

Subject: Re: [DANIEL-L] James Daniel & Elizabeth West thoughts
P. A. Miller wrote some great stuff.
List (and Pam)
Pam, I will attempt to answer some of the questions you posed in your
Israel & Elizabeth were in Edgecomb as early as 1758 where a court
document lists them as orphans of William West & Martha. Martha had
remarried (to William West…. really) and William was appointed Guardian.
Interestingly one of the securities was Benjamin Culpepper, grandfather of
Mary Culpepper, wife of David Sion Daniel.
The William Daniel you see in 1740 must have been producing Bertie Co.,
records at that time. There was a very active William in Bertie which I
believe to be Simon's brother but I am not aware if he came as far west as
what is now Nash.
The property sold by West, Ephraim & Patsy was described as "300 acres on
the north side of Rockey Swamp (another document says west of RS) , which
William WALLACE acquired 28 Apr 1740". These three were not the only
children; in 1795 Shepherd sold his inheritance from Israel West, in 1797
Milly, whose guardian was Sarah Edwards (dau. Of Peter that married Hugh
Edwards?) sold and in 1802 Margaret (Peggy) and her husband Jonathan
Wiseman sold her inheritance with the sale being examined by Peggy in
Lexington in Rowan Co. In every case the properties were sold to James
I agree if James of Edgecombe/Halifax and James of Nash are the same his
movements appear strange. However, it may be just movement between two
Brunswick “pods”. The Howell Flewellen (Ellen) relationship seems to be
present in both pods.
I believe the following two independent judgments (one from Nash) against
the same folks suggest some relationship between Frederick & James:
776-(647) Peter MORGAN sheriff of Halifax Co. to Willie DANIEL 14 Aug
1797. By judgments from Nash Co. in favor of Howell F. ELLEN guardian
against the executors of John JONES dec'd; & in favor of David DANIEL (?)
guardian; and in favor of Frederick DANIEL; and in favor of George REEVES.
The court order was Aug Ct 1797. sd Willie DANIEL became highest bidder
for slaves Beck, Lacy. P. MORGAN. Wit: Lewis DANIEL, Robert COCHRAN. Nov
Ct. 1800. L. LONG CCt. [Willie & Lewis were sons of William who married
Sarah who is likely a son of Peter of Brunswick and later Halifax.
Although we don't know much about Frederick we do know from his pension
app that he was from Brunswick Co. and was in Nash when he enlisted.
Howell Allen was executor of James Daniel's Halifax will.]
871-(723) Peter MORGAN high sheriff of Halifax Co, to Isaac HILLIARD, 6
May 1801. Tamarlane JONES by his guardian Allen JONES recovered against
the heirs of John JONES, Sr. dec'd; John JONES, Robert JONES, Willie
JONES, Judith JONES (widow). Also Sarah EDWARDS guardian of Milly DANIEL
recovered against John, Willey, & Robt JONES as heirs of John JONES Sr.
dec'd. Sd HILLIARD was highest bidder at 1900 pounds. 370 acres surveyed
by THOMAS to sd John JONES dec'd. joining Fishing Creek, Robert INMAN; 100
acres conveyed by CLARK to John JONES, dec'd., joining sd CLARK, Caleb
ETHERIDGE; 50 acres conveyed by CLARK to John JONES dec'd, joining
ETHERIDGE, sd CLRK, Fishing Creek. P. MORGAN. Wit: John CROWELL, Charles
W. GEE for HARRIS, P. BROWNE. John HALL, L. C>C.C.S.E. [Milly is dau of
James Daniel & Elizabeth West. Although I can't be certain Sarah Edwards
may be Peter Daniel's dau that married Hugh Edwards.]
As I was researching these families what gave me a problem was the Davids.
As Pam mentions the more prominent David has no apparent connection (that
I could establish) to either the Peter Daniel crowd or to Frederick.
There is however, a David Daniel very prominent in the affairs of
Frederick and James in Nash Co. I wish I could say that this David was
David Sion Daniel, who based on his wife Mary’s (Culpepper) app for his RW
pension states says that he was son of Peter Daniel of Halifax. Other
than the pension app I have learned very little about this David but the
circumstances are such that this may have been him in Nash and there was a
case (the property James sold to Peter) that his name appears in a Halifax
document. We know for a RW pension app fact that Frederick was born in
Brunswick Co., VA.
