Not sure if Daniel Barnhill, b. 1787 in South Carolina was married once or twice before marrying Tempest Busby, 1834 in Texas? First wife was named either Catherine Wheeler or Hannah Wheeler but believe it was Hannah.
If it was Hannah Wheeler then her parents were William Wheeler, b. 1726 and Mary Freeman, b. 1763 and the reason that Daniel Barnhill and Hannah Wheeler named two of their sons "William" Freeman Barnhill, b. 1819 and "Freeman" Wheeler Barnhill, b. 1822. Another son was named Andrew Jackson "Jack" Barnhill, b. 1821.
Sure Daniel and Hannah never realized what confusion later generations would have in separating W. F. Barnhill from F. W. Barnhill but they really were two different men and brothers. William F. Barnhill is listed on the 1850 Census for Austin, Texas and Freeman W. Barnhill is listed on the 1850 Census for Washington, Texas. Other brother A. J. Barnhill is found living with William F. Barnhill on the same 1850 Census for Austin, Texas.
