I just received a letter from a cousin who went to Thomas Co. to try to find
the ancestors of Augustus Elijah. Here is what she wrote to me:
"I found in the 1860 Lowndes Co. census an Elisha Daniel, wife Mary P. with
children Francis P., 9; Augustus, 6; Moses, 2; and John W. 10 months. I keep
finding A.E. Daniel and J.W. Daniel on mortgages and loan papers. I found a
J.W. Daniel in Mitchell Co. just over the Thomas Co. line. I found out he was
born in 1859 and I believe him to be Augustus' brother."
This is all new to me--what do you think? This is the first time I've heard
Lowndes Co. and Mitchell Co. mentioned in connection with A.E.'s family.
