Thanks for allowing me to have your line. It is most interesting when I find someone whose ancestors, at least Moses Winslow and Isabella Shelby, crossed paths.If you carry their genes, then we are genetically related as well. (direct decendant).
The ultimate would be to come to know the names of living people, but I realize that there are many reasons why that is not desirable, regretably.
I assume that Daniel's wife's maiden name is "Johnston".My 4Ggrandparents Daniel and Susannah Shelby had dau. Margaret Annabella who m. Dr. Mortimer Delville Johnston.Two direct descendant of theirs are Frances Ann and James Steere who live in N.C.
Mortimer is said to have been a professor of math, as I recall, at Davidson College in Charlotte, NC.The above Daniel was said to have been "appointed but never inaugurated" as head of Davidson at one time.Daniel eventually had a boarding house near the campus and made $6/mo per student, which was said to have been good income.He was once engaged in cultivating morus multicaulus, food for silk worms.
I believe that Margaret and Mortimer were m. at Davidson.
