Anecdote*1839 In 1823 the Extr of William Satchell and his widow Elizabeth sold 177 acres by survey to David Topping. In 1836 his Extr sold to Charles B. Stockley. Three years later (1839) there was a transaction which is not clear: no disposition by Stockley was found and he was still living, but there was a suit for a divison by a number of Dunton children, seemingly the children of a Benjamin & Ann Dunton. By order of court, a John W. and Mary Haslay(sic) deeded a one-seventh interest to John G. Turner; this was the only deed to Turner that was found, but 10 years later a trustee for him sold as 170 acres to Thomas H. Bagwell. In 1867 Bagwell and wife Imogene of Portsmouth sold to Victor A. Mapp Jr. and 3 years later he gave a deed of trust to George W. Dunton, and he became the owner although no foreclosure proceedings were noted. In 1871 the will of George W. Dunton (N72A) left to trustees for certain children and grandchildren, and finally in 1938 the house and 150 acres were bought by J. Clyde Dunton. His will called the property Poplar Hill. (NOTE: This would have been the children of Benjamin Dunton (1798-1832) & Ann 'Nancy' S. Topping (1802-1828) and it was this Benjamin's 2nd wife & widow Mary T.S. Tankard that married John W. Hursley.)7

Birth*between 1752 and 1766Daniel was born between 1752 and 1766 at Accomack Co, VA.2 
Will - Grfath's*23 January 1765Daniel was named in his grandfather's will on 23 January 1765 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as a grandson Daniel Welburn in the will of John Smith.3 
Will - Father's*7 May 1766Daniel was named in his father's will on 7 May 1766 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as eldest son Daniel Welburn (under age at probate) in the will of Daniel Welburn, wife Rebecca.4 
Anecdote*31 May 1774 DANIEL WELBORN (b. 1752-1766), d. 1810-1813) mar. MILLIA (-----). WILLIAM PARADIS was appointed his guardian (Orders 1774 1777, p. 169 (May 31, 1774)). Daniel moved to Halifax Co., N.C. by 1777 (Halifax Co., N.C. Deeds Vol. 14, pp. 9, 11, 13, 15 (July 24, 1777)), and was married to MILLIA by 1780 (Halifax Co., N.C. Deeds Vol. 14, p. 587). MILLIA or DANIEL may have been an heir of JAMES CARTER by 1777, although neither is mentioned in JAMES CARTER's will nor in that of his wife. In 1787 4DANIEL (of North Carolina) claims to have been heir-at-law to ARCADIA WELBURN (his great grandmother) formerly of Accomack (Deeds 1788 1793, p. 121). DANIEL compiled a fairly extensive deed record in Halifax County between 1777 and 1791. Other Accomack names associated with him in these deeds are WILLIAM WELBURN, WILLIAM PARADIS (who married his sister), ESTHER PARADIS, ANDREW and LEAH GOOTEE, RANDOLL WEST, ESTHER NOCK, and NANCY MERRITT. JOHN MARSHALL is a witness to one of DANIEL's deeds (Halifax Co., N.C. Deeds Vol. 14, p. 621 (April 17, 1782)), but so many Marshalls were present in Halifax Co. at that time it is not clear whether this JOHN MARSHALL was of Accomack. DANIEL's 1785 Halifax tax listing shows him as owner of 600 acres. In a sale of Negroes, both 4DANIEL and WILLIAM WELBURN claim to be of Accomack (Halifax Co., N.C. Deeds Vol. 16, p. 430 (Oct. 3, 1787)). He was granted a license to keep tavern at his house (Halifax Court Minutes, vol. I, 1784-1787, p. 279 (Nov., 1785)), and was appointed overseer of road called "Whitehall". After 1791 his record terminates in spite of his not having disposed (apparently) of all his property, and he does not appear to have a death record in Halifax Co. He is probably the same DANIEL WELBORN who purchased in 1785 and 1797 certificates to Tennessee lands granted by North Carolina for service in the Revolution (Tennessee Genealogical Records by E.R. Whitley (1980), p. 6; Red River Settlers by E.R. Whitley (1980), p. 121). In 1797 DANIEL possessed 1920 A. in Tennessee (Davidson Co., Tenn., Court Minutes 1792-1799, p. 333 (Jan. 14, 1797)) on which he owed taxes. In Sumner Co., Tenn. between 1798 and 1801 he witnessed three deeds (Deed Book #2, 1798-1802, p. 448; Deed Book #3, 1800-1805, pp. 229, 230). Some Welborns and Paradis's are listed in the 1830 U.S. Census of Davidson Co., Tenn. Between 1799 and 1810 DANIEL maintained an ongoing deed record in Sumner, Davidson, Smith and Wilson counties, at various times describing himself as "of" these counties. Except for deed references by his son DANIEL to his father DANIEL, Sr. dec'd (Smith Co. Deeds Liber D, p. 239 (June 22, 1813); Liber 1811-1814, pp. 240, 248 (June 22, 1813)), no record of DANIEL, Sr.'s death has been found in Tenn. or elsewhere. In the Liber D reference 5DANIEL, Jr. is called "an heir-at-law" to his dec'd father DANIEL, Sr.2 
Lived*circa 1775Daniel lived circa 1775 at Halifax, NC.1 
Death*between 1810 and 1813He died between 1810 and 1813 at Tennessee.2
