George Franklin Daniell was the son of Nathaniel C. Daniell and Hannah Martha(Brantley ?). They supposedly immigrated into Texas in early 1838 at the same time that George and his wife Sylvania Pearce immigrated from Arkansas. Nathaniel was killed by the Comanche on 6 Aug 1840 on the outskirts of Victoria in Victoria County, Texas during the Great Raid of 1840 on Victoria and Linnville, Texas. This was recorded by James Wilson Nichols, a Texas Ranger who recorded Nathaniel's death in his journal as "Mr. Daniels". This Texas Ranger also happened to be married to one of Nathaniel's granddaughters, Mary Ann "Polly" Daniells, the oldest daughter of George and Sylvania, who was the sister of my ancestor William Isaac Daniell. Hannah is listed in the 1842 Texas Tax Records implying that she was a widow at that time. I have not been able to find his burial site or the date of death or burial location of his wife, Hannah, who died sometime after the 1860 Federal Census. She was living with her son George and his family at the time of the 1860 Federal Census.
