This really caught my attention in your post - "Louise Pecquet" I
assume you know the PICQUET family was of Charleston and Augusta and were
tied to a lot of these families, including mine. One of the PICQUET boys
from Augusta went to Franklin College (UGA) with Young STOKES of Madison, GA
in the 1840's. So did one of the NISBET boys and a NISBET founded the
Athens Banner newspaper. The STOKES were from Lunenburg County, Virginia
and the NISBETS were from NC, at some point. A lot of New Englanders and
Atlantic Seaboard types in this line.
Cecile E. PICQUET, born Augusta, daughter of Admiral Antoine de la Motte
PICQUET and Caroline Emily CATTONET of Charleston married Henry Walker CARR
of Charleston in 1857. Henry was a great-grandson of the Hon. Dabney CARR,
Esq. and Martha JEFFERSON, sister to Tommy, of Charlottesville, VA.
Henry and Cecile's son, Charles Daniel CARR, Esq. (1861-1932) married
Mary Louise MUSTIN, d/o Milton Anthony MUSTIN, Esq. (1834-1924) and Anna
Maria RICHTER (1836-1926) of Madison, GA. Henry was a shaker and mover in
Augusta, as were the MUSTINS -- they all lived "on the hill" in Augusta.
The MUSTINS were of Davenport, England and were big merchants in Augusta.
Anna Maria was my grand aunt and her younger brother, John C. RICHTER
(my grandparents) married Alice E. DANIEL in 1872, so this PICQUET family
was probably pretty close, in obscure some way, to my DANIEL bunch, because
Mary Louise MUSTIN was a niece of John C. RICHTER, Sr and Alice DANIEL. I
also know for a fact that Charles CARR, a well-known attorney in Augusta,
came to his Uncle John's funeral in Madison in 1907, so they were probably a
little closer than I know about.
In fact, Charles CARR was so well respected in the RICHTER family that
two cousins in the HUNTER family of Oglethorpe County, GA were given the
CARR middle name -- Louis Carr COLE and Mary Carr COLE of Lexington,
Oglethorpe County, GA. Their father, Louis Dugas COLE (1873-1905) descended
from the well known DUGAS family of Washington, Wilkes County, GA. The
grandmother of these COLE kids was a RICHTER, another Grand Aunt, and she
had married Col. Nathaniel Harrison HUNTER of Stephens, Oglethorpe County,
GA and they were the parents of Sarah Richter HUNTER who married Louis D.
COLE as her first husband. After his death, she married James Gould
JEFFERIES of Augusta.

Subject: [DANIEL-L] DANIEL ~ RANDLE, MURDEN ~ ASBURY
Mike: I believe this Thomas was a brother of Charles DANIEL as stated in
History of NC Baptists when referring to Halifax County churches
Anne: Looks like we have the same church denomination... and that alone
means something. I hate to be a drag, but could you please write out what
"History of NC Baptists" reported exactly and especially
what were the
Nothing to do with this situation, but, I still remember reading in an old
book [published in Texas some years ago] about from where Asbury DANIEL
supposedly came. It stated Asbury was most probably a son of a John
Asbury trailed off into unknown outer space, while in reality, he was
Henning DANIEL and his Hannah ASBURY.
Mike: Col William HORN (of the Falls of Tar River church) coming to the
defense of his view got into a heated argument with Elder Thomas DANIEL,
suceeded his brother, Rev. Charles DANIEL, as pastor of the church at
Anne: [Lower] Fishing Creek... same area mentioned in that deed
I earlier posted. But, what were the dates of this above occurance?
Mike: I note also that Thomas & Edmund and Charles' wife Amy witnessed
will of Susannah Reed, formerly Susannah WEST (widow of Henry WEST) and
Charles was executor of the will.
Anne: Well, Reed [READE] is certainly a name associated with my ASBURYs.
Where did the above take place? There was also an Edmund DANIEL who
Alice [surname doesn't come to me at the moment ~ the couple was
briefly in the Louise Pecquet du Bellet's books, pub 1907] and I seem to
it was in the Halifax NC area. This Edmund died before his Alice...
and I have tried our very best to make some kind of connection... and
wasn't there. Then, we had thought, just maybe, our Edmund was
this after our Edmund was "dismissed" from the Wm DANIEL +
family.... he didn't work either.
Mike: So I guess the question is were there two Thomases or one Thomas
married both ladies (RANDLE &BURNEY)
Anne: Mike, It still isn't "set" in my brain as to when the Thomas DANIEL
who married the BURNEY lady occurred, or where. And, from your note, I'm
guessing it was in Halifax County? If he were a son of Charles, then he
have been a contemporary of my Edmund DANIEL + TEMBTE... and then
just also named a son Thomas and he was the one that married the
Who did Charles DANIEL marry... Amy who?
I'm certainly willing to accept and bend about most anything if true facts
are presented.... but, I don't like new "assignments" without solid
who does around here? Believe me, it's difficult to change
having certain names drilled into your memory from childhood by your
and grandparents... especially when they were born in the 1800s...
the time of events. But, mistakes do happen... usually minor
Thanks Mike for your post and I'm sure we will work it all out. Anne
