  • Alexander O'DANIEL[1]

    Male 1770 - 1816  (46 years)


    Personal Information    |    Media    |    Notes    |    Sources    |    Event Map    |    All    |    PDF

    • Name Alexander O'DANIEL  [2, 3
      • Census records seem to be in conflict with his birth year being 1770.
        The 1880 census would put his birth year between 1774 and 1784.
        The 1810 Census would put the birth year between 1765 and 1774. This range would be consistent with the bible record.

        I am using the birth year indicated in the family bible, provided by John Hall.
