Boyd Information Extracted from the letters of Louis Daniel: Louis Daniel believed that the Joseph Daniel in Desoto Co, MS is the patriarch of the Daniel clan. He said that Joseph came from Rockingham County, N.C., but we don't know what year. (Could Joseph be the Josiah Daniel on the 1845 State Census for MS in Pontotoc Co?) (Enoch Daniel had a son named Joseph.)
