My records show that Capt. James Kelso Daniel had a sister, Elizabeth who married William Redd. They were the children of John Daniel and Sarah Cunningham. William T. Daniel was the son of James Daniel and Elizabeth Cunningham. John Daniel and James Daniel were brothers; Sarah Cunningham and Elizabeth Cunningham were sisters. James Cunningham, their brother, married Frances Redd, sister of William Redd. William Daniel, brother of James & John, m. Hannah Cunningham, sister of Sarah & Elizabeth. So, three brothers married three sisters; my family also intermarried into this family (Redds). Would be happy to share if you like.

George Bell died in 1816:

George Bell settled the place in Prince Edward County known as Bell View. This was evidently the tract of land which he purchased from Gideon Fremon of Amelia County, in 1771. By deed dated February 9, 1771, Gideon Freeman, of Amelia County, conveyed to George Bell, of Prince Edward County, a "tract of parcel of land containing two hundred and thirty five acres . . . . lying and being in the County of Prince Edward, bounded as followeth, viz: beginning at a bounded white oak standing on James Carter's line, thence North 13 deg. West one hundred & fifty two poles to a white oak standing on Adam Calhoun's line, thence North 86 deg. West 82 poles to a while oak standing on the top of a hill, thence S. 60 deg. West fifty four poles to a red oak, thence South 65 deg. West 118 poles to a hickory standing on John Biggar's line, thence S. 10 deg. West one hundred and seventy five poles to a hickory standing on the said John Biggar's line, N. 83 deg. East three hundred and nine poles to the beginning."

This tract of land it will be observed, was adjoining to the place where Adam Calhoun lived. Two years after purchasing the place he married Rebecca Calhoun, Adam Calhoun's daughter.

The specific dates of George Bell's birth and of his marriage to Rebecca (Rebekah) Calhoun, and the dates of her birth and death are from the manuscript (letter) of Nathan Adam Bell, of Darlington Heights, Prince Edward County, Va., July 26, 1912.

George Bell's will, dated June 12, 1815 and probated November 18, 1816 (Will Book 5, p. 135, Prince Edward County, Virginia), mentions all these children. It indicates that Elizabeth Daniel, his daughter, was a widow at the time he made a codicil Feb. 29, 1816. In addition to these children the will also mentions his grandson, George I. Bell, but does not indicate which son was his father. He mentions also his grandson, George W. Bell, son of D. Bell, He mentions his daughter Velette (Violet) Daniel, indicating that both his daughters married husbands named Daniel. He mentions his grandson, George B. Daniel, but does not indicate whether he was the son of Elizabeth of Violet.
George Bell in his lifetime seems to have aquired considerable property. The records of Prince Edward County, Virginia, show that in 1771 he acquired from Gideon Freeman 235 acres of land (D. B. 4, p. 66); in 1790 from Samuel Stanhope Smith (the first president of Hampden-Sidney College), of Princeton, NJ, 650 acres of land on both sides of Briery River (D.B. 8, p. 312); in 1797 from Thomas Jones 347 acres (D.B. 11, p. 62); in 1799 from Thomas Owen 338 acres (D.B. 11, p. 297); in 1799 from John Nelson 200 acres (D.B. 12, p. 49); in 1800 from James Dixon 400 acres (D.B. 12, p. 3); in 1801 from Richard Jones 497 acres (D.B. 12, p. 19); in 1801 from John Allen, Sr., 330 acres (D.B. 12, p. 152); in 1802 from John Allen, Sr., 303 acres (D.B. 12, p. 280); and in 1805 from Archer Womack 358 acres (D.B. 13, p. 322).
During this time he conveyed in 1795 to Adam Calhoun 235 acres (D.B. 10, p. 308); in 1807 to Adam Bell 747 acrees (D.B. 14, p. 66) and to George w. Bell 358 acres (D.B. 14, p. 64).
It would appear therefore that he had something more than three thousand acres of land after accounting for that conveyed away. His will shows that he had settled several of his children on various of these lands in his lifetime, and he gives these lands to them by his will. His will also disposes of forty slaves to his wife and children.
The appraisal of his personal property (Prince Edward Co. Will Book 5, p. 343-4-5), shows his personal property was of the value of 5,023 pounds.

That would be James Daniel (b. 1698 Ireland d. 1763, Farmville, Amelia (now Prince Edward Co.) VA, m. Jane Elizabeth Kelso (who married 2nd James Cunningham, Sr. (b. Abt 1720 Ireland d. Bef Nov 6, 1780 Charlotte Co., VA); James and Jane Elizabeth Kelso Daniel had a daughter Margaret who married Francis Coleman. 3 of the Daniel children married 3 of the Cunningham children. I guess it only made sense for the surviving parents to marry as well.

A little confused about this post.

One paragraph shows Elizabeth Ann Daniel born 6/4/1790 - marrying March 13, 1780 (10 years before born) and her husband born 1775 (marrying 5 years after he was born) and first child born 1798 (8 years after she was born). Am I reading the dates wrong? Please clarify.

It appears from the message you posted 8 Oct 2012 that Margaret who married Francis Coleman was the daughter of James Daniel & Jane Elizabeth Kelso, but in this message it appears she is listed with
James Kelso Daniel
Elizabeth Ann Daniel
Jane Daniel
Sarah Daniel
Polly Daniel
Margaret Daniel
Frances Daniel
Samuel J. Daniel
Margaret Daniel b. abt 1850
William Daniel, b. abt 1754
Mary Daniel b 1757
Jean Daniel m. James Cunningham
all as children of John Daniel & Sarah Cunningham.

Please help me interpret this.
