This Robert was the great grandson of the Gov. Robert Daniel by his first wife, Dorothy Chamberlain. His firstborn was lost at sea. He left two children, Robert and Marmaduke "Duke."
This Robert, b. 1724 married Elizabeth Russ, daughter of Joseph Russ and Elizabeth LNU, son of John Russ and Hannah Ross. They were all probably living at Cainhoy where John's uncle Jonathan was the owner. Jonathan married Elizabeth Daniells in 1695, daughter of Robert and his first wife Dorothy Chamberlain. Robert Daniell probably gave Cainhoy to Jonathan and Elizabeth as a wedding gift.
Elizabeth and Jonathan Russ had nine children. She died giving birth to twins, Benjamin and John in 1718.
I think the 3 or 4 Marthas listed being born on the same day in Edgefield, SC is a mistake. I belive there was one Martha, probably. One date is the baptism date and one is date of birth. I believe there were two Elizabeths. The first one lived four months. Three years later they had another daughter and named her Elizabeth Russ.
