The more I look through the deeds of the DANIEL and DANIELL families of
Charleston, SC, the more I think something is wrong as relates to the
general age of the children of some of these DANIELL folks.
Most list the life span of Robert DANIELL, Jr. as 1675-1709 and his son,
Robert III as 1700-1739. This latter cannot be right. Look at these three
deed entries. There is no way I think they would give the title of
"Colonel" or make someone a JP when they were only in their early 20's.
way.. There is something amiss here but I do not know what it is.
There is no way these folks could have been confused because this was
the only Robert DANIEL show in town at that time. <grin> My guess is this
fellow is in his 30's in the 1720's, at least, maybe older.
Notice also this Robert DANIEL married Helen LOGAN and she was born some
five years before (1695) he was supposedly born (1700). That tells me this
Col. Robert DANIELL was born probably in the 1790 time frame (or before) and
this would match up with what I am seeing here. I think more than a few
dates for these DANIELL kids of Charleston are not exactly correct and some
of them may be off by 10 or more years.
