Thomas Daniel (c 1789 - 1855) VA

Thomas Daniel (c 1789 - 1855) VA

Posted: 11 Jan 2007 12:23AM GMT
Classification: Query
Thomas Daniel was born in VA in 1789-1780 (1850 census) and died in 1855 in Albemarle County. He was unmarried, had no issue, died intestate, and was loaded. Inventories place the value of his personal property in 1855 at about $35,000, and land was not included.

It appears that he had two brothers and two sisters. Brother Stephen Daniel died before 1826 and may have lived in the area of Powhatan and Amelia counties. Brother Henry Daniel was in Powhatan in 1810, and by 1850 lived in Franklin Co., MO. Sister Elizabeth married a Clement/Clements. Sister Judith, born 1775-1776, married Vincent Tabb, and was living in Lynchburg, Campbell Co., in 1850.

Other heirs mentioned in documents but not connected to a particular sibling:

Thomas Daniel was uncle of Martha Walton, wife of Anthony Walton of Appomattox Co., who gave a power of attorney to their son, Thomas E. Walton, to obtain their share of the estate. In 1850, Martha and Anthony were 45 and Thomas was 21.

The children and heirs of Martha (Daniel) Baughan, deceased wife of William Baughan of Amelia Co. William Baughan married Martha Daniel, daughter of Stephen Daniel deceased, 21 Dec 1826 in Powhatan Co. She had died by 1840.

Stephen H. Daniel was a nephew of Thomas Daniel deceased. He was an uncle of Thomas E. Daniel. He was living in Appomattox Co., VA in 1850, age 47, and died between 5 Nov 1855 and 25 Feb 1856.

Would appreciate information on this family and its relationships.

Csn you tell me how this Tapley Merrit fits into the Daniel family, data below shows him leaving a will leaving his brother William Daniel his belongings. Also Stephen, Henry and Besty and Elizabet Daniel are mentioned, I have been trying to prove which Daniel family these people belong to? I am connected to the Edward Daniel, he also shows up on the Henry county tax lists early, Rockingham county, NC. Holy Matrimony Creek Baptist church records from 1776 his wife Anne, Sister Ester Daniel and Philemon Lacy were members as well, Edward and his family left Henry county, VA. 1801 and settled in Grainger county, TN.

I ran across this information you had posted regarding Tapley Merritt. I didn't know that Margrett Merritt or Mary was his mother? But somewhere down the line his mother married a Daniel? He mentions his brother in Tapleys will? I have also pasted some cumberland county information along with some Powhattan information. Can you please look over these notes and see if you see anything that me lead to Tapley's half brother William Daniel? Who was magret merritts husband? etc.

My query relates to a branch of a branch of a family related to Daniel and has not been researched in depth. I will review your posting and see how it can be integrated into what I have.

One note. It is not clear to me either the source of the 1765 order binding out Tarpley Merrit, and whether the quoted language related to Margaret is on the same page or on the same date or in the same court term. There are three items mentioned in that paragraph, but only two dates. It would do you well to review the microfilm of the court orders in question to get the full text (and context) of each order excerpted. The reference to "GS" I do not understand.

If Tarpley was the illegitimate son of Margaret, then he would have been bound out at an age much younger than the typical binding age of about 13 for orphans.

To be security on a bond, a man had to have property sufficient in the eyes of the court to make good the penalty in case of default. It was a binding contract and to be valid required the person to be of age. Thus that Tarpley was born before 27 Feb 1754, 21 years before the marriage bond of the Burtons.

That would open the options that Margaret was his mother (but the bastard was another child) or that she was a sister or other relative.

I saw your post today and it really caught my eye. My GGGrandfather Henry Daniel was born 13 Oct 1800 in Virginia and died in Franklin Co. Missouri 13 Jan 1867. Tombstone I have been searching for his Family in Virginia since 2001. He married Eliza Jane Falwell about 1830. Her father Robert Falwell lived in Buckingham Co. 1820&1830, and I had been told that Henry was from there to, but I could only find a Judith Daniel in Buckingham 1830 census. Henry and Eliza Jane had nine children that I know of 7 boys,two girls. Oldest daughter Judith F. Married John W. Pamplin. Oldest Son Robert H. or in some records Richard H. Married Eliza A. Musick. Willis W. Daniel was third child and last to be born in Va. According to his Death cert. he was born 29 Jun 1839 at Appomattox CH. He died ST.Louis Mo. 27 Aug 1916. Henry and Eliza came to Missouri abt 1840 along with Robert Falwell and family. 1840 census Henry Daniels. I have copys of deeds for land that Henry bought and sold as well as Probate records, but was still unable to unlock Henry's family in Virginia. Oldest son Robert H. named first son William P., I wondered if he was named after someone in Va. Do you know if this is the same Henry Daniel in your post? Thanks Chester

Mo. 13 Jan 1867. He married Eliza Jane Fallwell abt 1830 Buckingham Co.,she was dau of Robert & Frances Fallwell. They moved to Missouri Fall 1839 or Spring (before Census)1840. Last child born Va., William Willis Daniel Born 29 June 1839 info from death cert. I believe my Henry Daniel was the son of Henry Daniel & Judith Cox D/O George Cox from your post. I believe George Cox will of 1795 was brother of Henry Cox will 1791 and Henry Cox will 1781 was son of Henry Cox w 1791. Will of George Cox 1728 Goochland Co. Deed Book 1 pg. 2&3 mentions sons George, Henry,and dau Martha Cox. He leaves them land lying North & south of Appottomax River in Henrico Co. I've been looking for info on William Daniel Sr.& Jr. I believe the William Daniel who died at Clements mill was William Jr.,and his widow married McCraw. Been looking at Edward Daniel too, as well Stephen Daniel, Thomas Daniel, Judith Daniel grandaughter of Henry Cox 1791. Is she the one who married Vincent Tabb? My Henry Daniel's oldest dau was named Judith F. with all these Henry's and Judiths you could get a headache. Don't know if I'll ever fit all this together but I'll keep trying. Thanks Again for your post! chester

I think you are on the right track, right now my family is planning a trip to Martinville, Brunswick, VA. Lee county, VA. etc. They are leaving on March the 5 for a week or two geneaolgy trip. Dottie a cousin who is also researching this line, thinks we are related as well a Tapley Merritt left a will naming his brother William Daniel of his belongings, if I remember correctly. Dottie has this information. email me at vlomon@tds.net I will send you dotties email and see can certainly help out of this line.
John Jr. and JOhn Sr. of Brunswick also Edward is a part of our line and its looking as if, they all may be a descendant of Neil Daniel of New Jersey who descendants settled in Northampton, Va. and migrated down to Rockingham, NC. Guliford, Henry and Patrick, VA. Elizabeth Price is also working on this line. So I think you should stay in contact with them. Elizabeth can certainly help out on this family line .

Csn you tell me how this Tapley Merrit fits into the Daniel family, data below shows him leaving a will leaving his brother William Daniel his belongings. Also Stephen, Henry and Besty and Elizabet Daniel are mentioned, I have been trying to prove which Daniel family these people belong to? I am connected to the Edward Daniel, he also shows up on the Henry county tax lists early, Rockingham county, NC. Holy Matrimony Creek Baptist church records from 1776 his wife Anne, Sister Ester Daniel and Philemon Lacy were members as well, Edward and his family left Henry county, VA. 1801 and settled in Grainger county, TN.

I ran across this information you had posted regarding Tapley Merritt. I didn't know that Margrett Merritt or Mary was his mother? But somewhere down the line his mother married a Daniel? He mentions his brother in Tapleys will? I have also pasted some cumberland county information along with some Powhattan information. Can you please look over these notes and see if you see anything that me lead to Tapley's half brother William Daniel? Who was magret merritts husband? etc.

I ran across this information you had posted regarding Tapley Merritt. I didn't know that Margrett Merritt or Mary was his mother? But somewhere down the line his mother married a Daniel? He mentions his brother in Tapleys will? I have also pasted some cumberland county information along with some Powhattan information. Can you please look over these notes and see if you see anything that me lead to Tapley's half brother William Daniel? Who was magret merritts husband? etc.
Essex, Cumberland, Powhatan, and Amelia County Virginia
Tapley Merritt is a revolutionary war veteran. He appears to have died without children.
His mother, not named, is alive in 1779.
1750
Assuming Tarpley was a minor in the record of 1765, he would have been born no earlier than about 1750 or so.
18 Nov 1765
Ordered that the Church Wardens of St. Anns Parish do bind out Tarpley Merrit to serve and be provided for according to law. (Essex County)
Included as they are in the same reference and might relate to Tarpley: "Margaret Merritt for having a bastard child.", and also in the same reference, 17 Nov 1766, Mary Merritt for having a bastard child.

I am looking for the father of a William Thomas Daniel in Georgia who's mother was named Eliza. She was a widow by the 1850 census in GA. William later died during the Civil War returning home from Vicksburg. I am posting to you because I noticed you have Burton family in with yours. This William Thomas Daniel married Elizabeth Stovall in Ga. ( these are my gg grandparents) The Stovall family has very strong ties to Henrico county, VA. My second or third Stovall generation ran a ferry across the James and he and his sons were deemed patriots to the revoltion. My Stovall line married in with the Burton family. It could be interesting if I could ever get my elusive Daniel line out of GA. We suspect that they may have ties further back than we are aware of with the Stovall and Chandler lines

Well, I wish I could help there, but recently a researcher stated we connect to the Neil Daniel of New Jersey bunch which immigrated to Northampton, VA. on into Rockingham, Guliford,NC. also Henry and Pittsylvania, VA. some of this line went to Alabama. The very well could have migrated down into GEorge, My gggg grandmother always stated we descended from a James Daniel who lived on Long swamp creek cherokee county, GA. I am wondering if by chance we descended from a son of Neil Daniel named James or a brother of Neil Daniel named James Daniel. We have some researchers going in the month of March to do some more research perhaps, then they will find something that will pull this family line into place.
