I assume you know this:
James Beverly DANIEL (1805-AFT 1853), son of James Chesley DANIEL and
grandson of Chesley DANIEL and JWC married a Jane Eliza READ in 1832. This
is the Middlesex bunch.
Also, a James Kelso REDD (notice it is REDD in this listing) married Mary
Elizabeth LEWIS of Troupe County, GA ABT 1835. Their daughter, Mary Lewis
REDD (1837-1867) married Calvin Evans JOHNSTON (1827-1901) in 1854. There
were of Columbus, GA.
He was the son of Lancelot JOHNSTON, Esq. II and Margaret JONES of
Madison, Morgan County, GA. I assume you did notice the KELSO in this REDD
boy's name and we know the KELSO's were attached to the CUNNINGHAMS and
DANIELS of Greene County, GA. Your READ may have become REDD at some point
down the line. Dr. Lancelot JOHNSTON I was of Ireland and married a Zeriah
RICE of Hanover County, VA. During the RW, Lancelot was the personal
physician to Gen. George WASHINGTON. The JOHNSTONS lived in Caswell County,
NC but Lancelot II migrated to Morgan County, GA and built the home "Snow
Hill" in Madison, one of the premier homes in Madison. The POULLAINS were
tied to the JOHNSTONS and later lived there and they were tied to the
Calvin's sister, Elizabeth JOHNSTON married Antoine POULLAIN II
(1815-1900). He was the son of Dr. Thomas Noel POULLAIN, MD of Greene
County, GA, formerly of Washington, Wilkes County, GA. His mother was
Harriett Byron WRAY and Dr. POULLAIN's mother was Sarah Garland WINGFIELD,
d/o Thomas WINGFIELD III and Elizabeth TERRELL. The WINGFIELDS were of
Louisa County, VA.
I also know that in 1848, a Dr. WINGFIELD, who I think was a son of
Thomas IV and Sidney MOUNGER, offered my GGA, Mary Etholinda "Ethie" POTTER,
a job in his school in Madison. This was communicated to Mary, who was then
in NYC with her mother, Margaret White POTTER. In 1849 she came to Madison
and in 1851 she married Simeon A. ATKINSON, the youngest newspaper publisher
in the US at the time. He was also the Secretary to the GA House, a MAJ
during the CW, an Aide to LT. General Braxton BRAGG and owned newspapers in
Marietta, Madison, Athens and Augusta before the CW. After the CW he and
Ethie moved to Brooklyn, NY where he founded what is now Field and Stream
Ethie was a younger sister of my GGM, Anne Eliza POTTER (1808-1863) who
married my GGF, Charles W. RICHTER, Sr. (1807-1884) of Madison. The NISBIT
family is also pretty close to my bunch, at least professionally, since
Alfred Moore NISBET (1797-1875) founded the Athens, GA "Banner." In 1855,
another Great-Grand Uncle, Russell Ramsey RENEAU (1832-1862) , owned the
Thomasville, GA "Southern Enterprise." His sister, Mary Jane (1830-1912),
married Robert W. DANIEL in 1852 -- my great-grand parents. Their daughter,
Alice E. DANIEL (1854-1924), married John C. RICHTER, Sr (son of Charles and
Anne) in 1872 in Madison -- my grand parents......
Some of this stuff is getting relatively close to my bunch but they were not
collateral with this bunch, just close.......

Subject: [DANIEL-L] DANIEL ~ ASBURY ~ COLEMAN ~ READ(E)
JOHN: This is a line I have looked at -- William DANIEL and Elizabeth
out of the Essex County, VA bunch......
ANNE: Remember, I've never insisted "which" William DANIEL and Elizabeth
COLEMAN, and you may well be correct John. However, I've been looking at
door" county of Westmoreland COLEMAN families connected to the
SPILSBY union which connected back to my READ(E) + COLEMAN and ASBURYs,
believe Essex, Westmoreland and Richmond, etc. were just about all
same clan of
Note below one specific marriage into the COLEMAN+SPILSBY family... child
"three" under Coleman READ(E) children, and then note child "one" [my
Anne READ(E) whose grandmother was an Elizabeth COLEMAN... Anne, b:
married Thomas ASBURY...
Also, I've wondered if Edmond DANIEL didn't have a first spouse too...
Elizabeth TEMBTE Murden... since they married so late in life...
was just busy selling land to think about marriage. Anyway, I keep
to the ASBURYs with their COLEMAN connections, trying to find the
but, guess I'm just not smart enuff to sort it all out... while
crossed and am totally stressed out.
Children of Richard COLEMAN and Susan MasCALL or McCALL:
1. John COLEMAN, bc: 1653/54, ~ d: 1686 ~ probably unmarried, when Thomas
GARLAND was appointed his executor 20 DEC 1686 (Westmoreland Co. O. B. #1,
2. Elizabeth COLEMAN, d: 1697, Westmoreland ~ married Andrew READE as his
second spouse. [my line]
3. James COLEMAN ~ deeded land in 1695 that had descended to him from

Andrew Read and Elizabeth COLEMAN were Anne READE ASBURY's grandparents.
Andrew first appears in the records of Westmoreland County VA in 1666,
when he was
granted 800 acres of land apparently a newcomer to the country. And,
possible that Andrew was the son of Thomas READE who was granted 300 acres
land in Northumberland Co VA in 1653, which he later sold to John
(Nugent "Cav &Pioneers" pg 280 and 461).

to Barbara WALKER ~ daughter of George WALKER and Frances (?)

county in 1754, 1764 and 1765, his wife, Elizabeth (Rec. and Inv. No
