Well, I had the answer in an article that came up when I Googled Daniel Island. It has much to say about his life, including the following: He was buried on Daniel Island and survived his wife Martha and five children. His grave marker was found in 1895 it was moved to the main graveyard at St. Philip’s Church in Charleston.
I believe St. Philips is Episcopal. He would not have been catholic as the English during his lifetime were very much anti-Catholic and those who were not Dissenters from the Church of England followed the Anglican (Episcopal) Church. The Parliament for the colony in 1707 made the Church of England the official church and divided the land into parishes wherein the records were kept.
The article did not mention his son-in-law Jonathan Russ whose parents were Dissenters and belonged to the Congregational Church in MA. I was trying to determine if he followed the lead of his parents or of his wife who was probably Episcopal.
