Hi,

My understanding is there was a family dispute over Hugh McDonald's (early 1800's) will which was challenged and won by Gervais (Jarvis) Gibson, husband of Hugh McDonald's daughter Bethia. Some of the McDonald family was so upset they changed their surname to McDaniel. If you search online for Hugh McDonald's will you'll find a better explanation.
