Has anyone looked into the records at UNC-Chapel Hill regarding Nathaniel Chesley Daniel?
According to the UNC library website their files contain the following:
Chiefly correspondence among members of the Daniel family. Many of the letters are from or
to Anne H. Bullock Daniel and her children. Others are to or from brothers and cousins.
None of the letters were written by Nathaniel C. Daniel. Most letters are about daily
events in the lives of family members. Of interest is an 1856 letter informing Anne that
she had inherited a slave. Only one letter is from the Civil War period.
Also included are legal and financial papers, writings, and biographical information. The
legal and financial material consists of a legal brief regarding a suit by James B.
Daniel, Jr., 1860; an 1864 tax statement of account; a copy of the 1876 will of James
Daniel; a 1753 land indenture from Granville County, N.C.(OP-4251/1); and tax receipts.
The writings include a history of Holland Mill Chapel near Gastonia, N.C., and material
relating to Daniel family history.
There are also two volumes, an account book, 1848-1856, of Nathaniel C. Daniel (14 pp.)
and an account book, 1854-1862, of Anne H. Daniel (107 pp.), with records of purchases
made by the family. Also included are two copies of a photograph (P-4251/1-2) of three
former Daniel and Bullock family slaves--Jim, Rose, and Lawson.
Can anyone tell me what exactly is contained in the "material relating to Daniel
family history"? How accurate is the information? ... Is it worth having copies
