Knowledge of my McDaniels' roots ends with my Great, Great Grandfather, James McDaniels. I do not know where or when he was born, but I would expect it to be in Ohio around 1840 to 1855. His son and my Great Grandfather, Phillip Norris McDaniels was born in Washington Courthouse, Ohio in 1876. There's more specific info below about my Great Grandfather and his wife, Mary.
It is believed that Phillip had one or more brothers and that there was not a truly defined way of spelling the last name: McDanials, McDanial, McDaniel, etc. Any information/guestimation would be appreciated.
