I also am a descendent of William and Rebecca McDaniel, through their son Drayton (then Sanford and then William who married Ola Shelton). Census info says that William and Rebecca were both from SC, but I can't figure out who William's father was.
I can only track down two William McDaniel's in SC, the one who married Sarah Couch and the Jacobite prisoner. I know that the one who married Sarah Couch is not my line, and the jacobite prisoner doesn't fit either.
There is a third William, but he was in NC.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! I've been working on this for quite a while.
