Inez: I believe that there is a connection between the Carolyn McDaniel(s)-Joseph G. W. Brady and the McDaniel family that now lives in Union Parish, Louisiana. I have Cyrus McDaniel and wife Lucinda McCarty of Jasper county, Mississippi with 8 children.
Their daughter, Martha Jane McDaniel, married Nathan Clark Brady in 1869 Montrose, Jasper county, Mississippi. Younger sister Carolyn McDaniel (b. 1865) can be found in the 1880 census of Jasper county, Mississippi living with her parents. I believe she is the Carolyn McDaniel(s) who married the half-nephew of her brother-in-law, Nathan Clark Brady.
Joe Brady and Carolyn McDaniel(s) moving to Ouachita parish isinteresting because it is VERY close to the homesite of brother, Daniel P. McDaniel in Downsville, Union Parish, Louisiana. (Isn't the Claiborne Community close to the Union/Ouachita Parish line?) Daniel P. McDaniel moved to Union Parish in 1884. What other information would you have so we can tie these families together?
