Allied Family Topic DR

 DR   Richard T. Daniel (c.1824-1872)
Although I am not a descendant of Richard T. Daniel, some of his descendants married into my family. Consequently, I have devoted Allied Family Topic DR to his family.

Richard T. Daniel, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Richard T. Daniel might describe his life as follows.

I married Susan A.R. Matthews in Lunenburg County 21 December (bond) 1841.  The Census of 1850 enumerated me and Susan, both age 26, with children, Virginia 8, Cornelius 6, Latinus 4, and Louanna, age 2. 
I was a miller until my death in June 1872 with heart trouble. Susan Daniel died 28 June 1887.

Richard T. Daniel of Brunswick County, whom we have not identified, might have been a son of Thomas Daniel who died in Charlotte County and whose sons, Hezekiah and Richard, returned to Brunswick County to live.
The Census of 1860 listed Richard and Susan with 6 children in their household.
