My family is also a Daniel family from New Iberia, La. Here is some of my Daniel history.
According to a 1880 census, it reflects a Mathurin Daniel born 1796 was widowed. According to the census, Mathurin states his parents are from Africa.
The child on record at the time, he was living with, was his son Mathurin Daniel (B.1828-d.1897) who was married to Adelaide. The children in the home were Arthur, Harville, Hervillien and Marguerite.
Marguerite was married to Aristide Levy. They had two children at the time: Adelaide and Anatole Levy.
Harville or Arvil (b. 1867) married Alice Lewis and had one son named
Rosenbert Daniel (b. 1887).
Rosenbert Daniel married Agatha Olivier and had 7 children
