MCDANIELS in Mason Co, KY

Not sure this is relevant to most Sellers families, but I copied it so will
share.

Note that I have already sent extracts from Volume I of Mason County,
Kentucky Deed Books A-L which covers the period up to 1810.  These records
DID contain some Sellers.  Volume II DOES NOT contain any Sellers, but does
contain some of the McDaniel names that we have bandied about.  They appear
to be connected to the family of Enos’ son Francis but not sure how.
Volume II covers Deed books M-V and 1810-1820.

George McDonald failed to make the payment when due—therefore James Ward
advertised the land for sale on 16 Feb 1818 and said land was sold to the
highest bidder John R. Bullock for $730.  This transaction is conveyance
for
same.  Land bounded by the possessions of Col. Simon r. Baker, Thomas Gash,
Barnabas McLaughlin, and Michael Wilson.  Clerk:  Marshall Key

This is all I found in Volume II.  They fit with the Court Orders Mason Co
1800-1803 which I also copied.  Enos' name appears there. These will follow
in next note.  Will have to abstract the abstracts a bit to make them
workable.  Later, possibly tomorrow.

Mason County, Kentucky,
Court Orders, 1800-1803, published by T. L. C. Genealogy of Miami FL.  They
help to establish that Francis and Samuel McDonald both kept taverns along
the Cabbin Cr road.  From land records, it would appear that they may have
been in Williamsburg.  The Federal Court records indicate that Eneas
McDaniel/McDonald distilled liquor.

June Court 1800
Ordered that David Kilgore, overseer of the road leading from Salt lick to
Flemingsburgh, do work from sd Lick to the forks of Salt Lick Cr, and John
McDonald is appointed overseer of the balance of sd road to Swissers

to
work under them thereon.

McQueen, Hezekiah Plummer, to the mouth of the little East fork of Cabbin
Cr, thence crossing the Cr and leaving the same, going through the land of
Graham, Disbrow, and Blanchard, to and through Plummer, to and through
Piper, intersect the Salt lick Creek road upon William Watkins.  We think a

any, why the road may not be established.

Report of the way for a road from the little East fork of Cabbin Cr to the

ground to be as good as the road now goes and suppose it a great advantage
