 72   Mr. Daniel (-c.1790)
Pedigree Chart 03
Although Peter and Mabry Daniel are known to be sons of Sarah Daniel and grandsons of Joseph Daniel, the identity of their father has not been precisely determined. He was likely dead by 1790 since Sarah’s youngest son was born about 1788. No record of his death is in Brunswick County. Although he and Sarah may have been living in Dinwiddie County when he died, personal property tax records for 1782, which list only Christopher Daniel and Thomas Daniel, reveal no evidence of an estate. 

The Gilliam and Mabry connection
Established in Sussex County were the families, Mabry and Gilliam. The Gilliam family originated with John Gilliam and the Mabry family with Francis Maybury who married Gilliam’s daughter. Both families had a presence in present-day Greensville County and into Brunswick County.
It is undoubtedly from the Mabry family that Mabry Daniel derived his name. Mabry named a son Gilliam Daniel indicating a connection to this family, too. Because Sarah was the only child of Joseph Daniel with descendants named Mabry and Gilliam, they evidently entered the family through her husband suggesting that he was a Gilliam or Mabry descendant.
Sarah’s husband would have been born say, 1730-40. Except Hinchia Mabry, all second generation Mabry men left wills and only son Daniel Mabry briefly held land on Rocky Run and Red Oak Creek, very near Waqua Creek.
It is more likely Sarah’s husband was connected to John Gilliam, a Waqua Creek neighbor. Mabry’s daughter Ann Daniel named a son John G. Callis further suggesting this connection to John Gilliam.
Sarah’s husband may have been a son of Thomas Daniel who lived near the family of Joseph Daniel on Waqua Creek. After Thomas died intestate, his widow Susanna and only known son, Robert, deeded land to John Gilliam. Could Susanna have been Susanna Barker, a daughter of Elizabeth Gilliam?
Possibly Sarah never married and the father of her sons was a Gilliam, perhaps even John Gilliam or his son. Yet the birth of illegitimate children would have initiated court action, of which none has been found.
