There is a Hiram listed in the 1860 census of Talladaga County, Al with a Caroline and 6 children. The children are Wi lliam, 10; John, 8; Mary, 6; Hiram, 5; James, 4; and Sarah, 2. Charles says that the Hiram listed is Hiram David McDan iel, his ancestry. According to the 1850 census Hiram was 22 and Caroline was 20. Hiram lost 4 years and Caroline los t 23 years.
Caroline is listed in the 1866 Pike County Census. Hiram died in December 1865 in prison.
I also found a marriage account of Caroline MCDANIELmarrying William Browning 8/23/1866. The 1870 census of Pike Count y, Alabama list a William Browning, age 31, with Caroline (now age 40, which matches the 1850 census) with 7 children . The children are John, 18; David, 16; James, 17; Mary, 14; Ann, 13, Elizabeth, 9 and Sarah J., 2.
William could be on his own, Mary lost 2 years of age (if same Mary), Hiram David is listed as David and is could be co rrect age, James is 3 years older, no Sarah. Gained Ann, Elizabeth and Sarah J..
From past experience we know the ages can vary considerably.
Charles is using the 1860 census as being his Hiram.
The web thickens.
It is highly possible that there were two Hiram McDaniel families; the Angus McDaniel immigrant has been proven to no t be our ancestor.

Hi Cynthia, I have been collecting info on my family from a large varity of services. From family members and other mem bers online that have contacted me. I also did the DNA thing and have found a wealth of people that I was kin to and di dn't know. There are several sites which have given a lot of info on the McDonald/MCDANIELline. Genealogy.com is one o f them but I have been contacted by other members of the family that have filled in some gaps. I am related to Elijah M cDonaldthrough his Brother Hiram McDonaldand wife Caroline Gassett who were the Parents of my great grandfather Hiram D avid McDonaldwho was the father of Charlie Dave McDonaldmy Grandfather. I would be happy to talk to anyone who is inter ested in what I have learned.
