History: John G. Daniel (b. ca. 1778) was the son of Chesley Daniel and Judith Woodson Christian of Tranquility Plantation in Western Granville. In the late 1790s and early 1800s John G. Daniel was involved with his brothers (James, Woodson, and Beverly Daniel) in business operating under the name "James Daniel and Brothers" in Granville, NC and in Clarksville, VA. The brothers eventually moved: Woodson to Perry AL; Beverly to Raleigh in Wake Co NC; James to Mecklenburg VA; John G. to Prince Edward and Powhattan VA.

John G. spent many years in Powhatan, VA, returning to Granville after 1840. He died at Red Hill possibly by August 1848.
