John, I can't recall if I ever responded to your reply. No, I don't have proof of marriage between Mitchel McDaniel and Susan Koonce, however, I believe they were and the old letters I have from the 1860's and 70's pretty much prove it. There was never a mention of a Singleton. She was probably not the only Susan Koonce in Jones Co, NC. Maybe we are not from the same Koonce family?
