Don't recall that you have this. Looks like a second marriage or a
junior Eneas based upon your info; if so, bride could well be a widow.
Marriage from Bourbon Co KY
Eneas McDaniel m. Elizabeth Caldwell Dec. 27, 1800
Marie and All, I had little time to copy all of the notes from the
following, so it's very incomplete. Index of items follows. Want to
purchase or order to read full microfilm. BOURBON CO KY COURT ORDERS
1786-1793, an Every Name Index, 1995, TLC Genealogy, Miami Beach FL. The
film is available for sale. LDS # is 183092 Had time to find the
following entries (and have abbreviated same): p. 35, March 1787. An
indenture (land sale) of Enos McDonald + Sidney his wife to William
Buchner (possibly Bucket, but I think Buchner). (Notes: Wife is Sidney.
There is at least one other Sidney. From memory, she was dau of Francis
McDaniel, probable son of Enos, and she married a Howard. A William
Buchner or Buckner was executor of Leonard Sellers 1823 will.) Next
entry for Enos, Apr. 1787, shows him doing Jury duty. Page not noted. P.
144. James Lowry + wife against John McDanell. (Lowry also filed against
John Smiley. Both suits were dismissed.) Date not noted but bef. 1790.
(Note: You show the following Bourbon Co marriage: Mary Sellers married
Andrew Lowry 14 March 1799. Does anyone know whose daughter she was?)
Next found two suits (both 1790, I think) against John McDonald. One was
brought by David McCash and was dismissed. David paid John Ryland for
six days testimony. John paid Rachel McDonald for 1 day of testimony.
Next suit was brought by William Archer. Did not have time to pursue.

MARIE and ALL,
Although this is not the Eneas/Enos McDaniel of Bourbon Co KY,
this is probably the PA one that I found before. Could be related to
the Eneas/Enos of Bourbon. Fact that he was executor of a Lemon will
might tie him to Max McDaniel's "grandfather" Andrew McDaniel who had
son-in-law George Lemon and so on. The Lancaster Co PA marriage of
this Enos McDaniel in 1772 might lend support to a McDaniel/Sellers
acquaintance there--maybe the family Michael Sellers of Bracken Co KY.
Not sure, but I am passing on the clues.

Hi! I'm researching the McDonald family in Westmoreland/Fayette
PA. I came upon your name by doing a search for McD and have been
interested in all the info you have posted. I'm working with Neil
McDonald trying to make a connection for Valentine. He was on the
Fayette county PA census but then moved to Mason county KY. Later
he moved to Brown/Clermont county OH. If you have any info on
Valentine I'd really appreciate it. My own line is for Jeremiah, s/o Alexander,
who died intestate in Fayette PA but his children all signed selling
the land later.
I've been collecting all McD info for PA that I can find in the hopes
of figuring out these families. I have some info on an Enos that I
didn't see you post, so I thought you might be interested in it. I have
the Familytree church record CD #166 which has:
Church Records: Selected Areas of PA, 1600s-1800s-Rev. John
Cuthbertson records, Lancaster, PA
24 November 1772 - married Enos McDonald and Rebecca Duncan. (At mid.
Familytree lists and Enos being in PA in 1800 on their census index
but I haven't seen the actual 1800 Westmoreland county census. I also
found a book at my local library with Washington county will abstracts. I
was checking it for all McD's and found this:

My records show the wife of Francis as Dolly McNew
and the wife of
his brother, John as Polly Hamilton.
The information on John McDaniel and Polly Hamilton comes from
Kentucky Pioneer Genealogy and Records, Vol. 2 #2, Apr 1980.
Witness for the wedding of John and Polly was Francis McDaniel.
Father of the bride was Thomas Hamilton. Wedding date Oct.17, 1792.
I do not have a record of a Sellers interconnection at this time.
Part of the problem in dealing with the geography
of the layout of
the initial Virginia Land Grant to Enos McDonald/McDaniel in 1783. It
was a roughly square shaped piece of land tilted about 45 degrees.
There were no section lines as I am accustomed to in my home state of
Indiana. It was only because it touched on two streams that I was able
to determine the physical location. These streams were Silas Run to the
north and Townsends Creek to the south. The land layout crossed over
Silas Run on the north and bordered Townsend Creek to the south. There
is only one general location along the streams where this condition can
be met. About one mile to the east the two streams become one, where
it runs in a north easterly direction and is part of the present-day
border between Bourbon County to the south and Harrison to the north.
Ruddles Station was to the east of this creek confluence. To the west
of this point, Silas Run becomes the present day border between the two
When the two separate counties came into existence, part of the land
of Enos was north of the creek, in Harrison County with the bulk of it
being south of the line in Bourbon County. Francis inherited land in
the northern portion and John's was in the southern part.
When Enos McDonald/McDaniel died his will was processed in Bourbon.
The will of Francis went through the courthouse of Harrison County.
Chasing down official records becomes very difficult. Additionally,
many of the county records were boxed up and taken (at a time unknown to
me) to the State Archives in Frankfort. Some counties had employees who
were neat and tidy so records at the archives are relatively easyh to
peruse. Not so from Bourbon County. Some look as though they were
picked up by the armload and squished into the transport boxes. The
years haven't been kind to them. Regulations for using these records is
that they must be returned in the storage boxes in the same order as
A few years ago as I was trying to make some sense of a particular
box it called to mind a remark of one of my sons. I took a taste of
buttermilk which was past its prime and spit it out remarking that it
had gone bad. My son asked, "How can something go bad which is bad to
begin with?" My point in mentioning this is that many of the bits of
information floating around are tied to these original records which are
now stored in the state archives. I plan on spending a week going into
them next month.
The information I located about the "deposition of Enos McDonald"
was compiled by Mrs. Wm. Breckenridge Ardery and presented in a booklet
for the Paris (KY)
sesquicentennial in 1939. Unfortunately it is out of print. I have
made copies of pertinent pages. For her material on "Forts" and
stations she gave her reference as Draper Mss and Depositions filed in
A few years ago I lucked into meeting a young woman who had done
some research on Stations in the area. I asked her about the original
notes of Mrs. Ardery's. I think it was a niece who had some control
over the notes and refuses to make them available to anyone. However,
part of her notes ended up in the state archives. I hope to find them
next month and thereby locate some of the originals.
I have a scanner software problem at the moment. When it is in
operation again I will be able to send this Sesqui. material to you.
Nice hearing from you.

remained in the Hampshire Co. VA-WV area when they left for Baltimore Co.
MD in the 1760's, thence moving to swPA, Westormoreland Co. PA, by the
early-mid 1770's. This was Joseph McD's family (wife's name unknown),

Hampshire County), namely Valentine McD (my line), who served in Rev War
from Westmoreland Co. PA, firstly in 1777 at age 17 -- all per Val's Rev
War pension records. I have corresponded with several McD's of Hampshire,
Hardy and Frederick Counties over the years and will try to find their
records containing various McD data. My McD ancestors moved 'on down the
river' (Monongahela and Ohio) via flatboat from Fayette Co. PA in 1790
to Maysville, KY (Mason County.) Val moved his family across the river
(Ohio) to the area of present Brown Co. OH c1796, this providing some

Subject: 1880 census Elizabeth Vaughn
I need to locate a son or daughter of John MCDANIEL and Polly/Mary SELLERS
of Bracken Co KY who was alive in 1880. Elizabeth (MCDANIEL) VAUGHN was
their daughter. She was born about 1800, married Thomas VAUGHN in Bracken
Co, and lived in Nicholas Co.
I know she was alive in 1850, but I need 1880 info. Willing to pay expenses
of a search or purchase a print copy of the census, if available. This
was the first census on which parents birthplaces were listed. I want to
know if her entry agrees with a much younger sister, Mary (MCDANIEL)
who gave John MCDANIEL'S birthplace as Ireland and Mary SELLERS' as
My ancestor, James, died too early to provide this info.
Thought I would update you will the little news that I MAY have. Have
located a daughter of John MCDANIEL and Polly SELLERS of Bracken Co KY in a
census of 1900. It's a long story, but Mary (MCDANIEL) MEFFORD states in an
1880 census that her parents were born in Ireland and Prussia, respectively.
This according to a relative.
The 1900 census of Monroe County, IA, Pleasant Twp. shows that Mary
widow, aged 82, lists her parents as born Ireland and Germany, respectively.
What does it mean? It means, if true, that Mack MCDANIEL was likely
immigrant just before the Revolution and that John must have been an infant
at the time. Means that Polly SELLERS could NOT have been the daughter of
Johann Michael aka John Michael aka Michael SELLERS, since he came to PA as
I am trying to find another child who lived until at least 1880 when
information was first recorded. Looking for Monty Sellers "grandma,"
Elizabeth (MCDANIEL) VAUGHN in Nicholas County KY. Since she was born about
1800, doubt that she made it. My James died a couple of years too early.
Best bet may be AURANEY (MCDANIEL) MAINES/MAINS. Think husband George Mains
may have stayed in Bracken.
Let you know what I find. Not sure the info on parent birthplaces is
accurate. Descendants were calling her Mary KING rather than MCDANIEL, and I
wonder why. It's my James MCDANIEL who married Sarah KING and one of Monte's
relative married another.
Last note-probably coincidence. The MEFFORD/MEFFERT family goes back
Prussia/Germany (northern Germany was part of Prussia), and the immigrant
Andreas MEFFERT's wife was Magdalene HAAS. I see the new ZELLER entry
contains a Barbara HAAS.
On January 10, 1793 when Fanny was 20, she married Reuben ANDERSON, son of George ANDERSON (~1747-1803) & Dicedema ? (-1825), in Harrison County, Kentucky. Born about 1770. Reuben died in Harrison County, Kentucky in 1848; he was 78.

Notes on Roland McDaniel: 
I have several McDaniels listed in the settlement of Benjamin Neale's estate - John - Roland - Lettice -

There is a discrepancy here because I do not have Nancy Williams or Louisa George listed in my information on the children of Mary Neale and Gabriel George.

I came across your message of Wed, 9 Sep 1998 in
You stated you were researching the MCDONALD family
in Westmoreland/Fayette County,
PA. The above web site includes a whole bunch of goodies but it also tends to blur the bottom line
that the PA Enos MCDONALD (1790 PA Census, Washington County, Nottingham twp. on
Mingo Creek) and the KY Enos MCDONALD (Bourbon County in the 1790 time fame) were two
different men bearing the same name.
Within the web site named above is a report by me giving a background of the Bourbon County,
KY Enos MCDONALD and his connection to Westmoreland, County, PA between 1773 and
1776. Between his acquiring a Virginia Land Grant in 1783 under the name of Enos MCDONALD
and the time of his death in 1802, most documents show the name as becoming Enos
MCDANIEL. For this reason I began referring to him as Enos MCDONALD/MCDANIEL. His
grandson (my gr- gr- grandfather), Enos MCDANIEL, was the son of Francis MCDANIEL.
Since the time when I put together my report I was fortunate to make contact with Mary
(MCDONALD) SILVA who is a direct descendent of the PA Enos MCDONALD. The PA Enos
MCDONALD family kept the MCDONALD form of the name and migrated to Butler County (city
of Hamilton), OH about 1800 and then on to Indiana (including Fayette County, where I live) before
On the other hand, the KY Enos MCDONALD family became MCDANIEL family. It is
possible that the family lines of one or two of his five known sons may have retained the
MCDONALD form but we have not been able to demonstrate this.
It appears that there have been two major sources of confusion for researchers following the early
KY MCDANIEL family line.
Number one: the obscure clues demonstrating the name change.
Number two: the question of the given name of his wife--Sidney, from a 1786 deed of sale of a
portion of the 1783 Virginia Land Grant; Frances CAMPBELL from a 1796 marriage record;
Isabelle (or Isabella), the name of his widow in his 1802 will.
Our search of records in Westmoreland, PA was intended to clear the identity question of, "Was
the Westmoreland Co., PA Enos MCDONALD the one who migrated to Washington Co., PA--or
the one who migrated to Bourbon Co., KY?" The clarifying point would have been finding the name
given as being the wife of the wife in Westmoreland Co., PA. Unfortunately this information still
eludes us--as does his location prior to being in Westmoreland Co., PA
Mary MCDONALD SILVA can provide you with a large amount of information about the
Washington Co., PA Enos MCDONALD.
I would be glad to share information I have available.

What I will do is go into my data on the Enos McDonald
Grant. From it I will scan them and if possible will get
to you as an e-mail attachment. Should the files be too big
make hard copies and get them to you by pony express.
When I was originally gathering this land grant material
prior to our knowing of the PA connection. My search was
grants (including the war of 1812) and it hadn't occurred to
territory in Pennsylvania could have been a part of it.
I'll have to
check it out.
Since retirement last April 17th my time has become
unstructured so please do not be too impatient with my
I had been seeing patients for fifty-two years and when I
seventy-nine, I figured that this amounted to close to a
quarter of a
million eyeballs--that was enough!
IS it named V IRGINIA LAND GRANTS? I don't have the book.
I have several film that hard to read, but, if I knew the
NAME might help.
NAME was listed as ENOS MCDANIEL/MCDONALD?
I Believe at one time, SHERRY sent info on VA -her Mack
McDaniel was from
IF I can't copy from the computer, I don't seem to get it
copied to web
pages - hope you understand?
SHERRY'S letters were returned to me - will try and check

YES, this Change of land of VA and PA is so important.
THANKS, Enjoy that retirement!

I am researching the family of John McDaniel born about 1815-20 and
wife Elizabeth Shelton married Brown Co. 10/5/1840 would like to find
parents of these 2.Also would like to find death date of John,was listed
in 1850 census but was not with the family after that.Thanks for your
Sherrymazzetti1@prodigy.net follows McDonald's and McDaniel's.
Butler County wasn't very old in 1805.
A portion of my Abraham's and Winn's pioneered there.
My personal library has only a little book on Paddy's Run,and a
history of Miami U re Butler Co.
ARBOWLING11@YAHOO.COM lives just west of Butler Co,though she
was raised attending the Concord Methodist of Williamsburg TWNSP,Clermont
that I've been writing about on OHCLERMO-L@rootsweb.com.

am replying to a letter you had sent HERMON FAGLEY, re ENOS MCDANIEL.
WE have the SELLERS discussion group which is very interested in ENOS
MCDANIEL family from KY and kids to ?
CAN you send us a Small list =
NAME, age and places of your children that connect to this ENOS MCDANIEL?
ONE or Whoever you connect to and where they came from =
And Where they went =
an 1850 census would be great
or an Earlier document/census/marriage would help.
THANKS for sharing. IT will Help.
I have been searching for information on my Enos McDonald for a long
time. I also exchange info with Don MacDaniel, I believe that
posted at times on your list. His ancestor, another Enos McDonald, lived in KY is the one you are following. It seems that both his Enos and
mine, lived in PA, about the same time, just to make things interesting.
I believe that Don's Enos, lived in another county. My Enos was
born about 1750 in Scotland, according to my G GFather's family history
account of the McDonalds, Logans, Dicksons and Brownlees. He immigrated to PA and married Rebecca Duncan (according to marriage
records) in November 1772, in Middle Octoraro, Lancaster County, PA.
They settled in Nottingham Twp., on Mingo Creek (about 400 acres), in
Washington County, PA and lived there until after 1803, when they
removed to Butler Co., Ohio. Their children were: Daniel, Leah and Rachel. Daniel, my GGG GF, married Catherine Logan, in 1807 in Butler Co.,
OH. She was the daughter of Patrick Logan and Nancy Sally Harper of PA. Their son THomas McDonald was my GG GF, who married
Elizabeth Dickson; their son Daniel, writer of the referenced historical account and "A History of Marshall Co., Indiana, 1836-1888", was my G
Hope this gives you some additional comparative data. I have been
unable to establish when and where my GGGG GF & GM, Enos and
Rebecca, died and are buried. Any info that may apply to my McDonalds, would be deeply appreciated.
