of Lawrence County, Ohio
Submitted by Lynneage <Lynneage@aol.com
The first person listed here was not himself an Ohio resident but was the father of a
pioneer of Gallia County, Ohio.
I. Henry McDaniel Sr.
d. May 1819 in Monroe Co., WV
Henry received 1761 and 1763 land grants in Halifax Co., Virginia. He moved
to Greenbrier Co., Virginia (now Monroe Co., West Virginia) in the 1780’s.
II. Henry McDaniel Jr.
b. 7 Nov 1763 in Pittsylvania Co., VA
d. 28 Sep 1838 in Gallia Co., OH
Henry McDaniel Jr. enlisted in the Revolutionary War while living in
Pittsylvania Co., Virginia. Upon discharge, he joined his parents in their
new home in Greenbrier Co., [now West] Virginia. There he met and married
Hannah Bryan, a first cousin once removed of President Abraham Lincoln.
Hannah was the daughter of Lydia (Lincoln) Bryan and the granddaughter of
Thomas Bryan of Rockingham Co., Virginia. Hannah’s father was a son of
Thomas, possibly Benjamin. About 1810, Henry and Hannah McDaniel moved to
Ohio, on Symmes Creek, which at the time was still wilderness.
Also, I notice that while the other 3 generations on the page all include
spouses and their dates immediately beneath, Henry Jr. does not. Can you
simply add the following lines directly under Henry Jr.’s dates:
m. 15 May 1788 to Hannah Bryan
b. 7 Sep 1770 in Rockingham Co., VA
d. 5 May 1841 in Gallia County, OH
III. Caleb McDaniel
b. 28 Sep 1790 in Monroe Co., WV
d. 20 Oct 1874 in Gallia Co., OH
m. 14 Sep 1811 to Martha Williams
Caleb served in the War of 1812.
IV. William Kent McDaniel (Rev.)

d. 18 Jan 1889 in Pataskala, Licking Co., OH
m. 25 Apr 1846 to Sarah Rife
b. 22 Nov 1822 in VA
