George is buried alongside his wife, Dora Rhodes Daniel, not far from the graves of Eula and her first husband. George and Fannie were parents of Ben and Seab. Benjamin Hiram Daniel - b: 7/4/1889 per Texas death record-died 3/13/1956, Malakoff, Henderson Co., TX, born July 4, 1889 in AL, married-but wife's name not shown, also listed his father: George Daniel born AL, no mention of mother's name.

His death certificate shows father George and mother unknown maiden name Green (Seab married Debbie Lou Tidmore.) Seab's census records and tombstone dates show birth as Oct. 1892. George's first wife, Frances Lourena "Fannie Lou" Green Whorton, had four children by her first marriage to James Henry "Jim" Whorton: James Madison Whorton 1876, Mary E. Whorton 1878, Luiza "Ludie" Whorton 1882 married George Washington Hill and Hattie Whorton 1886 married Grover C. Moon and Mr. Robertson. Fannie Green Whorton and Jim Whorton apparently divorced as he married Katie Fulks July 12, 1888, they lived in Shelby Co., AL and had eight children. By the 1900 census, George Daniel's sons, Hiram Benjamin and Seaborn H., along with George's step-children, Luiza and Hattie Whorton, were boarders in the household of William C. Harris. Art was living with George and Dora in 1900. Uncertain who Art James Daniel's mother could have been. Fannie Daniel couldn't have had Seab H. in Oct. 1892 and Art in Jan. 1893. So, either the births of these children are inaccurate or Fannie's death date is inaccurate or Art may have been a child of Dora Rhodes and reared by G.R. Daniel.

George must have been like the "old woman in the shoe" - he had so many kids - he didn't know what to do!!!
