Re: Hello, Spilsby Daniel fans
Thanks for the info. Regarding Spilsby, he may be the grandson of Spilsby Daniel and Sally Asbury (sometimes spelled Asberry), but unfortunately, while I have seen many claims as to their children, I have not been able to establish a direct connection. I seem to be missing a generation.
As far as I can prove via the US Census, my Daniel line is:
Elmer Ellison Daniel, 1922-1981
Rose Daniel, 1901-1989
Neely Newton Daniel, 1872-192?
Josiah Cyrus Daniel, 1835-1883
William T. Daniel, 1813-186?
Although William is said to be a son of Spilsby and Sally, she may have been too old to bear children in 1813, thus my conjecture of a missing generation. The Spilsby we have been discussing may be William's brother.
What is your Daniel line?
