     An August 1725 deed in Bertie County, NC, of William and Rachill Whitehead to Francis and Mary Parker, stated that the land being sold was adjacent to a PETER DANIELS. Joseph Culpepper was one of the witnesses. 2
This may have been too early to have been Peter, father of Sion.
     There were two Sion Daniels in early Halifax County, NC. One was Sion, son of Peter, and the other, Sion, son of Ambrose Daniel, who, according to Worth S. Ray, came to Halifax County from St. Mary's County, MD, around 1775.
     The Sion Daniel who was executor of the will of Elizabeth Culpepper of Nash County in 1788 appears to have been Sion, son of Peter Daniel.
