The following information was taken from the book: "William Moxley, Westmoreland Co., VA" by J. H. Sorensen. 1993.   Please contact Mr. Sorensen, 6544 Kerns Rd., Falls Church, VA 22044 for obtaining a copy of the book.   We cannot thank Mr. Sorensen enough for his generous research into these families.

     The findings of Fairfax Harrison, contributor to Tyler's Quarterly Magazine, in his article, 'A Group of Northern Neck Families', pages 162-171, and conclusion that Ann 'Nancy' Bowling, daughter of Gerrard Bowling, was the second wife of John O'Daniel (1718-1799) apparently is without consideration of the available record.   The record proves that the second wife of John O'Daniel more probably was Ann 'Nancy' McIntosh, the daughter of John McIntosh, whose will proved 20 June 1769, helped support the conclusion that Ann McIntosh was indeed the second wife of John O'Daniel.

     John O'Daniel, in his will dated 19 January 1798, devised unto his wife, Nancy O'Daniel, among other bequests, the Negro Grace and her two children, Charles and Jack.   John O'Daniel also named Lochlin McIntosh, brother of his wife, Nancy O'Daniel, to be one of the Executors of his will. (Will Book G, Page 423, Fairfax County, Virginia).

     The estate of John O'Daniel, was inventoried and valued on 25 January 1799, by John C. Hunter, Jesse Moore, and James L. Ferguson, however, 'When Negro Grace & her three Children Viz't, Charles, Jack and Osborn were Brought Fourth to be Appraised, the Executrix, Mrs. O'Daniel Objected thereto those Negroes being a part of her Father's Estate, Not Yet divided' (Will Book H-1, Page 64, Fairfax County, Virginia).

     Ann 'Nancy' Bowling married Peter Wise as proven by the will of Gerrard Bowling, written 9 December 1779, and was still married to Peter Wise on 17 January 1798, when settlement of the will of Gerrard Bowling was reached, and therefore could not have been the mother of Sara, Lavina Elizabeth and John O'Daniel, fathered by John O'Daniel and his second wife, Nancy.
