That Joseph DANIEL did not even live in the same area of Burke as Robert
C. DANIELL. Robert lived inside the little triangle of Blythe, Hephzibah
(then Brothersville) and Keysville, GA Blythe and Hephzibah are in Richmond
County, Ga and Keysville is in the northern part of Burke County but they
are all about 8-10 miles apart and back then county lines were not as
important as they are today.
The two churches that my DANIEL bunch were affiliated with were the
Brothersville ME Church in Hephzibah and Hopeful Baptist Church, located in
the northern area of Burke County. Hopeful (founded 1804, as I remember),
is where many of the TARVERS and their collateral families are buried, and
it is about 5 miles south of Hephzibah. You can also pick it up off of US
25 -- the highway from Waynesboro to Augusta.
We do know where Charles CLARK, who is listed on the 1830 Burke County
Census, lived -- near Blythe, so we have to assume the rest of these folks
lived to the south of Charles towards Keysville or back to the east towards
Hephzibah, since they all lived in Burke County.
I also know the obit of a Penelope DANIEL was submitted to the Southern
Christian Advocate by Brothersville ME church when she died in 1846, age 73.
This obit confirms she was the widow of Robert DANIEL of Burke County, GA.
Her age in 1820, 1830 and 1846 fits the age of the wife of Robert C. DANIELL
or DANNIEL, whichever spelling you want to accept. This obit also said she
and Robert moved to Burke County, GA from NC in 1812.
This 1812 date is very critical for proving that Robert and Penelope
were the parents of my DANIEL bunch because we have James L. DANIEL, who we
know was born 1814 in Burke County, Ga, and his older brother, Robert W.
DANIEL was born in 1809 in NC. This is in addition to the statements of the
VALLOTTON family, who do confirm these two were the parents of my bunch.
However, they say his name was Robert Chaney DANIEL and they are quite
positive his wife's name was Penelope LANE. Since Chesley is a name in this
bunch, they may have made a mistake and his middle name was Chesley and not
Cheney. I leave open all options on this one....
We also have Robert and James's sister, Martha DANIEL, born 1812, who
may have married a John LOVELESS. She is reported to have been born in SC
in 1812 and this seems to match a reasonable migration pattern from NC to GA
because they had to pass through SC on the way. I cannot confirm their
sister, Martha, married a John LOVELESS but I have reasonable collateral
support for it but I will not confirm this marriage without other proof.
This LOVELESS and DANIEL marriage is entirely possible because a "Polly"
LOVELESS married Charles MAY of Saluda County, SC before 1820 and their son,
Asa MAY, Sr.(1820-1878) was the father of Elliott Murray MAY (1856-1910) of
Monticello, Jefferson County, FL who married Mary Elizabeth RENEAU on 24 Jan
1881. These last to were the grandparents of my cousin, Joseph E. MAY, of
Mary Elizabeth RENEAU was the daughter of Russell Ramsey RENEAU
(1832-1862) and Sophronia E. CHASTAIN of Thomasville, Thomas County, GA.
Russell was the younger brother of Mary Jane RENEAU (1830-1912), who married
Robert W. DANIEL in 1852. Russell, who owned what is now the Thomasville
"Times-Enterprise" before the CW, was killed at the Battle of South
Mountain, MD on 14 Sep 1862. He was the 1st SGT, Thomas County Rangers,
50th GA VIR. His younger brother, Louis L. RENEAU, (1834-1863) was 1st SGT
of Company E, 6th AL and he was killed the following 3 May 1863 at the
Battle of Chancellorsville, VA. In case you forgot, Mary Jane RENEAU and RW
DANIEL were my great-grandparents, so these two RENEAU boys were my
great-grand uncles and this is why this LOVELESS and DANIEL marriage gets a
reasonable degree of support from me.......

Yeah, I figured that you probably had it - it was just an
coincidence that I was copying the census data - also from the originals -
or at least microfilms of it - when I read your email with those names and
realized that I had just seen those same names on the census. I figured
that posting them was no harm, no foul. And, yep, I made a typo on
Evans - repeated Vallotton's first name. Oh well.
I was actually tracking the Joseph Daniel from the same neighborhood. He
moved to Pike County, Alabama by 1830 - the part that later became Barbour
County. He named one of his sons Appollis Daniel - same as one of the many
different spellings that I found for the Appelles Daniel who was the
officer in Burke County in the 1790s. In 1820, he had two males age
in his household. I suspect that Christopher Daniel who appears in the
area in 1830 is the second male from the. Joseph Daniel named
of his sons Christopher Columbus Daniel.
These guys did not live next door to Robert C. Daniel, or anything, but
were in the neighborhood. In 1820, Robert appears on page 12, and
on page 13 of the census, and in 1830, Robert is on page 136 and
is on page 137. Just a few more things to make the brain stir.
