We have a Mary Pines/Pynes born in 1786 in SC who married our John Nolan. Her father was Wheaton Pynes and her mother Catherine ?? The Nolan family subsequently named various children thru several generations Wheaton as either a first or middle name. Wheaton's father was John Frederick Pines, immigrant. We do not know whether Wheaton was born in SC or overseas. Could your Daniel have been an older brother of our Mary Pynes? Daniel has also been a family name of subsequent generations. OR - we also have a Daniel Nolan married to a Rutha ?? by 1831 in Henry County Alabama. We have reason to believe that he had 7 brothers and sisters, some of who were Wheaton Jr., Mary, and Philidelphia. We think that there were two other brothers at least but we do not know their names. Daniel and Rutha had a son named Fair who married Mary Ann Creech in Henry County AL and we believe a daughter named Nancy who married Hamilton F. Dees also in Henry County AL. Any connection?
