I hope this helps. A very helpful "Daniell Cousin" sent me a copy of the original. It is Very difficult to read. I hope I transcribed it without too many errors.
Regarding William's son George Daniell (1783-1855). Most of my information comes from the internet, but George names his sons: William, Isaac H., Jacob and George W. Daniell as well as his wife Mary and Mary's deceased daughter Eliza Melton in his Will dated Jebruary 13, 1852. George was a minister and also left $100 to be used to aid in sending "the Sacred Scriptures to the millions of China" and $50 "to aid in distributing the Scriptures among the destitue in our late acquired Country from Mexico." He added a codicil dated December 19, 1852 that his wife have a "sufficiency of corn and meat for the support of her and her family for the ensuing year."
My line is through George's son Isaac Hill Daniell (1810-1863) who married Keziah Hamby >George Thomas Daniel > Sarah Daniel >Mary Ann Sims > Priscilla Williams > Lillian Hodges > me.
