I presume this is Daniel Bedinger, born 1761 to Henry Bedinger and Magdalene von Schlegel. I have little on him, but found the following on the internet (so hardly authoritative, but . . . ) The listing from Billy Marklan lists heirs, but does not specify relationships clearly. (Thanks Billy for sharing what you found.) Can anyone supply a clearer description of the relationships? I am descended from Everett Wade Bedinger.
