John Danley and Nancy Dunnigan had 4 children, Isaac, Susan, Catherine & Andy, all born between 1780 and 1790.Martha was NOT one of their children.Martha and Moses Hiatt got their marriage bond in Surry Co., 9 May 1811, we don't have the date of the marriage.Usually a male relative of the bride posted the bond, but they had a commercial bondsman, Matthew Kincanon.Moses had been a Quaker but was expelled for marrying out of the faith.I checked the land records for Surry Co. and found 4 Danley men who bought and sold land in Surry and Orange Co.John Sr., John Jr., Thomas and James.None of the deeds mentioned any women.The censuses for the time show no names of the family, only a count of how many males and females of each age.The census for 1790 for Surry and Orange co. is missing.A careful evaluation of the censuses lead me to favor James as Martha's father, but there is no firm evidence.I have found no wills to help.There seem to be no family histories to help.Martha's family were probably Presbyterian, most likely from Ireland.Some of the family joined the Methodist-Episcopalian Church through the efforts of the far traveling missionary, Francis Asbury.John Danley (I think Sr.) donated land to the Meth. Episc. Ch. with Francis Asbury as the receiving Bishop of the Ch.Date 28 Jan 1811, land in Orange Co., about 1 1/2 acres for a Church and buring ground.This was on the Stony Creek of the Haw River.I would like to know what happened and if the Church was ever built.I have not found a will of any kind to help. If you look at the censuses, there is in 1800 Nancy Donley, head of household, age over 45, with a girl child under age 10.This girl child was a bond servant and not a grandchild.In 1850 census of N.C. Surry Co., pg. 287, Martha Hiat was a widow living alone, 70 years old, born in N.C. and a person over 20 yrs who cannot read or write. I have quite a bit about her, but cannot determine who her parents were, just that they are not John Danley and Nancy Dunnigan.
