Just saw your message - my father was Milton Dail from NC. His line comes from Elbert Melton Dail whose grandfather was a James Dail from Wayne Co. NC thought to be the son of Abel Dail or Thomas Dail from what was then Dobbs County. They were thought to be in Tenn. in the 1800's. Wonder if these are the same lines? If you have a male Dail who would donate DNA to familytree DNA we could prove that. My late father donated his. Only male YDNA with the Dail/Deal surname should be contributed.
