Smith Coffee Daniell II was born the son of an Indian fighter turned farmer and landowner. In 1849, he married his cousin, Catherine Freeland (1830-1903) by whom he had six children, with three surviving to adulthood.

He began building Windsor in 1859 and completed it in 1861. Mr. Daniell lived only a few weeks after Windsor was completed, dying at the age of 34. On February 17, 1890, fire broke out in the house after a house guest accidentally dropped a cigarette in debris left by carpenters making repairs to the third floor. All was destroyed except a few pieces of china and 23 of the columns, balustrades, and iron stairs. The ruins of Windsor are located about 10 mles west of Port Gibson on Mississippi Highway 552 towards the river. It is entered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 and is administered by the Department of Archives and History's Division of Historic Sites and Archaeology.
