I would like to see the John DANIEL will you mentioned very much but not because it may relate to John DANIELL, Jr.
This is because this will cannot be John DANIELL, Jr.According to my information he did not die until 1812 in Charleston, SC.He also lived in Chatham County, NC, according to my information.
From Chatham County, NC Deed Books:

Also, as you will see from the following -- he was alive and kicking in 1794.

I am also cery curious about the Robert QUASH listed in this 1770 deed.Is it a translation error or the name of his wife's brother?My bet is that is Ann's brother or father, especially knowing how they played Monopoly with a lot of their proeprty.
