Where did John W. and Polly Daily come from ??
At this time there is a lot of uncertainty about the ancestors of John W. Daily and wife Polly. One record says;
" John Wesley Dailey b. abt.1774 Va. married abt. 1800 Va. d. Oct. 26, 1865 Hamilton Co. IL.
Wife- Mary "Polly" Compton Maulding b. abt.1783 Va. d.April 04, 1844 Hamilton Co. IL.
both are buried at Ten Mile Cem. Hamilton Co. IL."
There is a record of a marriage of a John Dailey and a Polley Compton on Oct 5, 1800 in Pittsylvania county Virginia. and that possibly Polly was about 23-24 years old.
And there is a record of a Mary Compton in the Virginia tax payers rolls in Halifax county in 1798.
Also there are recorded marriages of Rev. War Vet. Jesse Dailey to Mary Polly Turner on 11 DEC 1791 in Pittsylvania, VA, also a marriage of Hugh Dailey to Elizabeth Church on 12 APR 1801 in Brosville, Pittsylvania County, VA, so Jesse and Hugh are possible relatives to John W. Daily, but there have been found to date no records that would confirm this.
The travels of John W. Daily and Polly can be followed by the reported birthplaces of their children. The first 4 are reportedly born in Virginia and North Carolina and one record reports that the first son William was a stepchild, thus it is possible Polly had a previous marriage. About 1807 they moved to Logan county Kentucky where the next group of children were born. And then the son Lewis was born in Hamilton county in about 1820. While in Kentucky John W. was a soldier during the War of 1812. It can be surmised that this move to Logan county indicated a relationship to the Maulding family since the Mauldings were there from 1792 until 1807, that is except for West Maulding who never did leave Logan county and was buried there. James Mauling was buried there in 1797. There is an unconfirmed family tradition that Polly was a Maulding !Outline Descendant Report for Richard Maulding from http://bristol-cathey.org/Descendants_for_RichardMaulding.html

Thus there is the possiblility that Polly is the second Mary Maulding born about 1769 ! Except for the difficulty that the earlier recorded marriage between a John Daily and Polley was that she was possibly about 23-24 years old and the Mauldings reportedly left the Virginia/North Carolina area in or before 1783. to move onto the frontier in Tennessee. Per the following report they did a lot of moving.
I noted some errors in one of your Rawlings pages re: Catherine Tyler who m. James Maulding (Maulden/Mauldin) c. 1754, Caroline Co. She was likely b. 1735, the daughter of William Tyler (#1) of Essex Co. and came with him, after her unnamed mother died, to Caroline Co., VA c. 1742. Her brother William #2 died in the 1760s, and his death often is mistaken as that of his father, who died in Caroline c. 1794. William #1 was married three times, to Catherine's mother, briefly to a Miss Miller likely of Caroline (possible descendant of Capt. Simon Miller of Essex and Caroline) and Elizabeth Keeling, believed to be daughter of Richard Keeling, son of George. William #1 was an early sheriff of Caroline and well-to-do landowner. James Maulding's father (or grandfather) was the merchant Richard Mauldin(g), who died in 1752 in Caroline Co. - an original magistrate of the county in 1728. James was only married once. He lived in Caroline VA (there until at least 1771 when Wesley was born), Orange VA (far north of Virginia, at one time this county had an open boundary which included much of West Virginia), Cumberland VA , Chatham NC , Fincastle VA (Botetourt county), Washington District NC (East Tennessee), Cumberland District NC, (Morton and Ambrose signed Cumberland Compact in 1780), Robertson TN and Logan KY (not VA, reached here in about 1783), where he died in 1797. Catherine was still alive in 1819.

Then how did Polly and John W. get together to get married in Virginia in 1800? Unless as seemingly possible, Polly first married a Compton and lived with, or close to his family in Halifax county, had a first son William, became a widow and then met and married John W. Daily in Oct. 1800. In 1798 there were a group of Comptons on the tax payers rolls about evenly split between Halifax and Pittsylvania counties. There is a tradition that John W. had a falling out with the rest of the Dailey family over land, and changed the spelling of his last name to Daily and possibly after this he moved to Logan county Kentucky to be with the Mauldings ??
There is also a tradition that the family migrated to this country due to religious persecution. The family of Jesse Daily possibly fits this in that this report is on the internet:"The grandfather of Summers McCrum. Sr., came to Miflfiintown, Pa., from Ireland (Belfast) some time previous to the marriage of his son Robert (father to Summers, Sr.) to Anna Dailey, daughter of Jesse Dailey, born December 7, 1760, and his wife, Mary Turner, born April 2, 1775, said Jesse Dailey being a son of Hugh, born 1711, and Eleonor O'Brien Dailey, born 1724. They left Belfast also, probably in the year 1760. though we have no means of knowing how long they re- mained at the Isle of Wight, where Hugh Dailey died. Eleanor Dailey came to Fairfax county, Va., where her youngest son, Jesse, must have to have been born shortly after her arrival. She had at least one other child, John. They left Ireland on account of either political or religious troubles, proba'bly the latter, the family being Protestant. Jesse Dailey, father of Anna Dailey McCrum, was a Revolutionary soldier. "
So is it possible that Jesse Dailey at the age of 16 or 17 had a first wife and had at least three sons, John (b. 1776), Hugh (b. 1783, m. 12 Apr 1801) and a Robbin (b. 1778, there is also a record of his marriage in Pittsylvania county on 24 Jan 1816). There is as usual problems with the dates in that Jesse "was sixteen years old on the 7th Dec. 1776". And John W. Daily was born between 1776 and 1777 since he reportedly was 88 years old on Oct. 26 1865 at his death. However, Jesse did do things at a very early age since he became a soldier at age 16 and was such an early marriage possible, or are there errors in the records that we know nothing about ? And how about Jesse's older brother John, who was born at least two years earlier, there are no records on him that we know about !
There is one other possible weak tie to this area of Virginia in that often the families traveled together when moving onto the frontier and showing up in Hamilton county, possibly together due to some connection, were the Anderson, Bond, Maulding and Daily familes. Second son of John W., Anderson Daily married a Susanna Bond, daughter of Mastin Bond, son of John Bond who was married in 1780 in Halifax county VA.. There was a John Anderson in Halifax county VA and Logan county KY, but there are so many John Andersons that it is impossible to know if it is the right one. The John Anderson that moved to Hamilton county Illinois was the son-in-law of Ambrose Maulding.
Hopefully in the future we will find some documentation that clears up the many uncertainties
Also I have been pursuing the DNA route and have obtained Y-DNA results for myself and Gordon Daily descendant of John Wesley Daily Jr.. We have a very unique condition in that we have a null value for the 30th marker in the 37 marker test, a condition which very few have, about one in 10,000 of those that Family Tree DNA has records. As a result I started a NULL_456 project and it currently has 9 members with surnames of Daily, Forester, Burrell and Keating all of whom may be related being descendants of one individual in Northern England or Ireland before surnames were common. I would also like to obtain the Y-DNA37 results for a descendant of Jesse Dailey and the first son William Dailey, but to date I have not located a living male descendant of either.
I was contacted by a possible descendant of Jesse and Hugh Dailey and we obtained his Y-DNA 37 results and it showed that there was no close relationship. So, if he was indeed a true descendant of Jesse Dailey there is no family connection there !
Also some members of the Johnson surname have shown up as having a possible family connection to John W. Daily, see the Null_456 project results at http://www.familytreedna.com/public/null456/default.aspx?section=ycolorized . One of these Johnson members came from Amelia county Virginia and the other Johnson member's family was for a long time in Fluvanna county. And if the theory is right that our Daily family was going to the same places as Armstead Anderson it is possible our family was also from Amelia county since Armstead Anderson was born in 1756 in Amelia Co VA . Armstead enlisted in 1776 in Pittsylvania county so there is also a possible route through this county. There is a record of a John Dailey obtaining land in Goochland county as follows."GOOCHLAND COUNTY, VIRGINIA DEEDS, 1741-1745, p. 15 [p. 84] 19 Oct 1742 from William Barnet of G, to John Dailey of Henrico Co., for 20 pounds, a certain tract of land in G, about 200 acres bounded by the lines of Benjamin Woodson, Henry Williams, William Childresis & Phillip Webber. Signed - William (W his mark) Barnet. Wit - Augt Webber, Bouth Napier, Benja Woodson. Recorded 19 Oct 1742. Elizabeth the wife of William Barnet relinquished her right of dower to the conveyed lands."
Amelia county, Henrico, Goochland, and Fluvanna county are all very close together and at one time the Maulding family was in Cumberland county which borders on Amelia and Goochland county. So this area in Virgina becomes a prime target for locating possible records of the John W. Daily family. However, to date no other records have been located.
Please contact me if you can in any way clarify anything concerning the ancestors !!
