    Chwe’n again,

    Does anyone have Daniel surnames in there family from the northeastern N.C. and southeast Va. area. My gggrandmother was Zilpha Daniel,she moved from one county to another as far as I can trace,I think she was in Edgecombe,Northampton. I think she was born about 1772 I think in Edgecombe County N.C.,there are Daniel among the Meherrin and Haliwa Saponi and Tuscarora.She married John Woodard,which is another Indian surname of this area. Does anyone have this line in their family or know this Daniel family?

    I have Mary Polly Daniel, who married George Gibson 1831 Perry Co. KY. I have not researched this line so I am unsure of their origin.

    Zilpha married John Woodard,a descendent of the Woodard traders,that married Indian women. This Daniel line traces to John and Littleton Daniel of the Gingaskin Rez of Northampton County VA. These Daniels are (John and Littleton are always listed as “Indian” on the court records of Northampton County,not as Mulatto,like some of the other Gingaskin Indians are referred as. I am assuming that they were fullbloods and not mixed.

    Daniel was my g-g-grandmother’s maiden name, but I’m not sure where the dots might connect. Her name was “Mattie” Daniel who would have lived in Patrick/Henry County, VA. She married Thomas Turner, a primitive Baptist preacher.

    I think I found them on the 1900 PCVA census. Mattie’s name looks like Surrepta M. The surname Daniel shows up in early Henry County, but I have yet to figure out who Surrepta Matilda? belongs to.

    Hello, a cousin of mine and I are researching the Daniel family of Patrick and Henry, VA. She has traced your family line but has hit a dead end? This is the first time we have ever heard about a Joseph Daniel and Sarah Barnes. Here is what she has on your line and you can tell us if she is wrong or not and possible help fill in the blanks.

    Matilda Daniel, they called her Til, born January 12, 1852 died 1929, married Thomas Turner, May 26, 1855, died May 4, 1920, She is the daughter of James M. Daniel and Elizabeth Jane Spencer, They had

    Mary who married a Moore

    Lucy who married Dephus Joyce

    Ben and Tommy, Don know who they married

    They also had Minnie married Tom Shelton

    Sam married Debi Dotson , second wife Pearl Joyce.

    James Daniels father of Baily Daniel who married Pheobe Trent his father was John Franklin Daniel who married Lavina Wilson, his father was John who married Unknown? We think her first name was Abigail? His father was John Jr. that married Mary? and his father was John Daniel Sr. who married Elizibeth Marmaduke , and second wife Sarah Weatherspoon.

    Somehow this family connects to the Hanbys of Northampton, Robbins, and the Hancocks. Elizabeth doesn’t have all this in stone, but she has researched thsi line pretty well? How does Joseph Daniel fit into the Northampton Indian group? Vickie Lomon

    Does anyone know how Joseph Daniel and Sarah Barns connect to Northampton county, VA. We are researching a John Daniel who married Elizabeth Robbins, daughter we think of Col. Obedience Robbins. This family is very hard to trace. We have had our Daniel DNA tested and we matched a Barton Daniel, Basil, Edward, Brittian Daniel and others, but records were destroyed in Henry county. Edward Daniel was in Henry county, about 1776, we don’t know for certain who his father was. Basil born Nc. left NC. Came to Davidson county, TN. then traveled to Illinois then came back to Ark. Barton Daniel was in Salisbury District, about 1758, wife Delilah we belive, she died in Illinois. Could this Joseph Daniel be related to this family of Daniels in Northampton, VA?

    Daniels in Patrick and Henry county, VA.

    Hey Crazyhorse,

    Thanks for that info! Had never heard that Matilda was called “Til”. I descend from Matilda and Thomas Turner’s daughter Lucy. Her first husband was Cephus Joyce (according to my grandmother). I’ve seen mention of a John Henry Cephus Joyce, but was never sure if he was the same fellow. Cephus died before I was born. The great-grandpa that I grew up with was Lucy’s second husband, Raymond Shore.

    Want to make sure I’m reading your last paragraph correctly. Was James Daniel’s father Bailey or John?

    Are you from the same line?

    In my printout of part of Lela Adams’ PCVA marriage transcriptions, there’s an Edward Daniel who married Polly Consolvent 24 Dec 1791. (I have also seen an Edward Daniel in NC records, but am not sure if it’s the same fellow.) There’s also a Nehemiah Daniel who md Kitty Mankin 19 Jan 1826, along with James and Bailey’s marriages.

    There’s a Henry County book, but I apparently copied pages before knowing about the Daniel line. WIll see what else I may have collected.

    Thanks, again!

    Ok, first the Edward Daniel that married Polly Consolvent is the son of George Daniel who was in Patrick and Henry , VA early. Possibly of Brother of Edward Daniel Sr. My Edward Daniel was born about 1750, I find him in the Rockingham county, NC. Records the Holy Matrimony Creek Church being a member from 1776, also Ester Daniel his sister who married Philemon Lacy, Edward Daniel married Anne? We think her last name was Hopkins, They may have married in Shenadoah, VA. 1772, there is a marriage license for a couple by this name. Edward Daniel Sr. was in Henry county, VA. until 1800, he didn’t leave there until his finished an order of maintaining a bridge for seven years in Henry county, then he migrated to Grainger county, TN. where he died in 1833. He left a Will naming children, William, Joseph, Ester, Rebbecca, Jemima who married Winfry Mcgree, Others I can’t remember right now? Do you have a direct mail descendant that would be willing to have his DNA tested? If you do connect to this line, we would be willing to chip in an pay for the test. It would certainly help fill in the blanks if you descend from Joseph Daniel and Sarah Barnes. We matched a lot of Daniels, yet no one can get past the years of 1776, no one for sure knows who Edward, Basil and Barton Daniel’s father was? As to James Daniel being the father of Bailey Daniel, I will call Elizabeth and ask her if she has it in stone? She has always been told our Daniels were in Northampton, VA. migrated with the hanbys to Henry, Patrick areas, and I do believe Nehemiah is related to us. Vic

    No stones are required. ;~) I was just checking my understanding of whether you meant to say that Bailey was the father or son of James. Bailey appears to have md. Phoeby Trent in 1826, while James md. Elizabeth Spencer in 1847. Didn’t know if that makes Bailey older than James (as it appears) or if Elizabeth may have been James second wife.

    I’m not sure if your questions/comments about Joseph Daniel and Sarah Barnes were intended for me or not. Matilda is the only Daniel I knew about until you posted. I don’t know where they were before being in Patrick and Henry County, or after. I grew up knowing some of the Turners, but not the Daniels. Don’t know if any of them are still in the area or not. I’m not well-versed on DNA, but it sounds like you’d need the male descendant to be a Daniel, correct?
