On the subject of Marmaduke here his one: There appears to be no connection to any of the
old Daniel families of that period. Many guesses though. Payne
Our Marmaduke Daniel, an Englishman and Non-Cherokee, married Nannie Still, a "half
blood Cherokee" and had a son James, of mixed blood, who married Mary Buffington, a
mixed blood Cherokee. Mary was the daughter of Ezekiel Buffington, an English American
trader who immigrated from Chester County, Pennsylvania, and Mary Emory, who was 1/4
Cherokee. Mary Emory was the granddaughter of Ludovic Grant, a Scotsman and early trader.
[According to Dr. Emmett Starr: "Ludovick Grant, who was said to have been a
Scotchman, in a statement recorded on page 301 of the Charlestown, South Carolina probate
court in the book "1754-1754" in a sworn statement of January 12, 1756, says
"It is about thirty years since I went in to the Cherokee Country where I have
resided ever since" "I speak their language." He married a full blood
Cherokee of the Long Hair clan. He was among the Cherokees at the same time that Christian
Priber and James Adair was in the nation. Grants half breed daughter [Mary] married
William Emory, and Englishman." Page 466.]

This kit has no matches to the Bazel Daniel bunch or to any other
Daniel(s) in the project. No one in the project is claiming a Marmaduke
Daniel as their earliest proved ancestor.
