I do not know anything about the DANIELS in Thomas County other than
what I stated but I will bet the WATTS name really rings a bell with Lucy
Gray. I am copying this to her. Her DANIEL ancestor, William DANIEL born
ABT 1760 married a Betsy WATTS and their kids moved to Jackson County, FL
about 1820. Lucy and I have always thought our DANIEL bunch were probably
related but neither of us can find out who their parents were.
I have also thought that my Robert W. DANIEL (1809-1865) may have had
links to both Thomas County (because of the CHASTAIN marriage to the brother
of his 3rd wife, Mary Jane RENEAU) as well as the fact there was a letter
left in the Thomasville Post Office addressed to him and a man by this name
bought land in Leon County, FL in the 1850's.
What do you know about John CHASTAIN and the CARLTON girl, if anything?
I know there was a Henry CARLTON who was one of the first settlers of Morgan
County, GA and my bet is this Henry is related to this John in someway. I
know perfectly well that Morgan County, GA is a far piece from Thomasville
because I live in Thomasville but there seems to be multiple connections
between Morgan County and Thomas County because my grandmother, Alice
Elizabeth DANIEL (1854-1924), who was born in Jefferson County, GA, married
a man from Madison, Morgan County, GA and her 1924 obit stated she descended
from one of the founding families of Morgan County, GA. Which one, I do
not know but I know her DANIEL family fairly well, at least back two
generations and I do not know which one of her DANIEL ancestors could have
been from Morgan County, GA.
Known possibilities are -- NORRIS and LANE but outside of that, I do not
have a clue....

Subject: [DANIEL-L] Thomas Co.Daniels
I have just learned that my grandfather's sister, Mary
"Sis" Daniel b.
1882 (d/o Augustus Elijah & Martha Jane Chastain Daniel) married
They had 9 boys; only 2 are living. Do these names ring a bell?
The Spence connection I mentioned in a previous inquiry is related to my
grandmother, so, "fa git abo it." Wanda
