Who are these people?

The following is a 1815 deed that specifically mentions four families who I feel are tied to my DANIEL bunch in some manner. Who are they?
The reason I ask is that a Bryant BEASLEY is a very close personal friend of my GGF, Robert William(s) DANIEL (1810-1865) of Jefferson County, GA, Robert is a definite DANIEL name in my bunch and WILLIAMS may be the middle name of my GGF, according to the obit of his widow, Mary Jane RENEAU (1830-1912) -- his third wife.
No smoking guns, here, but this deed appears in about the same time this DANIEL family moved to Burke County, GA -- between 1810 and 1814 and I know the WILLIAMS family was real big in this area of GA.
Any information is appreciated.... Thanks
