Hello, I am really looking forhis parents names and what county in Ireland he came from. On Ancestry there is some confusion with another Daniel Wasson who came from another state and not Ireland. So there are actually two Daniels which makes it fun. I do have one document that mentions that the Daniel in my line came from Ireland in 1774 and fought in the revolutionary war.
Here are some of the things I know about Daniel Wasson from Ireland.
Wasson, Daniel d. 1843, Rev. War Soldier.Grave marker is a fieldstone, believed to be buried in this cemetery (Scott-Wasson cemetery in Venango county PA).
Wasson, James, died 1853, War of 1812, Grave marker is a fieldstone, believed to be buried in this cemetery (James Wasson was the son of Daniel Wasson).
James was William's brother and Daniel's other son (Joseph died at age 20 or 21).
