Looking for information from anyone who has infromation about Daniel Drinkwaters parents (b. abt 1759 Robeson NC and d. abt 1830 in Emmanuel County Georgia). 1790 census has him in Robeson Co. NC, 1810 has him in Abbeyville SC as well as in 1820, 1830 has him in Emmanuel County, Georgia. He marries Penelope Elizabeth Lee in NC. in abt. 1782. I have a pretty good bit of information on her side of the family by way of her father Jesse Lee (Robeson Co. NC and a probated will in 1816 - Daniel Receives $1 - Daniels son John gets $100 and a gun - Daniels daug. Keziah gets $100 and a slave and Daniels daug. Elizabeth gets $100 and a slave.
I believe that Daniel has a brother named Samuel Drinkwater that shows up with his wife Martha Bell Woods in Abbeyville while Daniel is there. I have not proved this yet but it sounds right. If anyone has information about Daniel and his parents I would love to swap information with them! I have always believed that my line of Drinkwaters came to North Carolina from Mass. on their way to South Carolina and eventually Georgia. I'm still looking.
Thanks and have a good day!
