FINDING A LOST BRANCH
DAINS FAMILY TREE
I would like to personally thank all my new cousins for their assistance and especially Roger Dean, Bob Dean, Katherine Colburn, Audrey Moran, Brad Behrens, Jeanne Daines and Thomas A. Eddy, President of the Eddy Family Association. Without their help and guidance I would still be stumbling along searching for the names of my great great grandparents.
In developing the genealogy of my immediate Daines family, I chose not to reinvent the wheel and have included research work and references on the early Dains family from other sources both on and off of the Internet. Information on the Eddy Family was extracted from the 1930 publication, "Eddy Family in America". I hope no one will be offended or upset by this decision. The information that I developed on my immediate line of the Daines family will be new to many and may result in some changes or re-evaluation of the Dains family genealogy by other researchers.
In October 1985, at the celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary, my parents, Guy V. and Anna M. Daines, gave my sister and me a copy of The Daines and Botts Family Genealogy as they understood it at that time. My father knew the name of his grandfather, Andrew Donley Daines, and grandmother, Eliza Ann Wilson, from his father Guy Logan Daines. My grandfather also had Andrew Donley Daines’ Civil War Discharge and war record, along with old pages of the Daines family bible, which had belonged to Eliza Ann Daines, all of which verified the names of my great grandfather and grandmother. The "Daines Family Tree", given to my sister and me in 1985 started with Asa Dains as the first known descendant. Abial Dains, the son of Asa Dains, was shown as the father of Andrew Donley Daines. Also listed were Andrew’s siblings, Alson, Alles (Alice), James D. and a half brother, Will Dains/Dean.
I accepted this without question until the death of my father, Guy V. Daines, in August 1997. At that time, I obtained the background information used by my father to develop his version of the Daines family genealogy. I found that it was primarily based on information contained in a series of letters that he had exchanged with a Roy F. Dains in Fair Oaks, California during a six year period from 1978 to 1984, and on family papers and other information about his grandfather, Andrew Donley Daines. However, the most significant information from Roy F. Dains related to his research of the Dains family genealogy. He made my father aware of a newspaper clipping found in the family bible of Samuel Dains, son of Calvin P. Dains, that told of the death of Alson Dains who was born near Sumner, Ohio and who at the time of his death, lived in Gilmer, Texas. The relatives listed in the newspaper clipping included a twin sister, Mrs. Emory Altman (Alice Dains) of Minersville, Ohio, a brother, Reverend James D. Dains of Gilmer, a brother Donley Dean (Andrew Donley Dains) of Middleport, Meigs County, Ohio, and a half brother, Will Deans (William Dains) of Kerrs Run. Also in the same letter from Roy F. Dains was a statement that Abial Dains had twin children, born in 1846, named Alles and Alson.
Based on this information my father developed the Daines family tree shown below:
History tells us that during the reign of Charles Stuart of England, there was a great exodus of immigrants to America. Many of these immigrants left because of religious persecution, others to throw off the yoke of serfdom and become free men. In the view of most researchers, Abraham Dains (Daynes), our forefather, was either born here in America or in England. The debate will continue until factual information establishes the name of his parents and the location of birth. With this in mind, I feel it is appropriate to include in this introduction the history of our name both here in early America and in England, since it appears most researchers feel that is the home of our forefathers.
The following information on the name "Dains" is taken from the "Descendants of Abraham Dains", by Robert Dean.
As one can see the name Daines and Dains has many variations, even within the same family. Unfortunately, it appears the individual with the most influence on the spelling of a name was the early census taker here in America. "Alice" became "Alles" and "Dains" became "Deen or Dean". At the same time within our immediate family, I found members were using Dains, Daines, Dean, and De Daines. This makes it extremely difficult in tracking family members a hundred years after their death. However, we are fortunate that genealogy researchers have devoted time to sorting out this name puzzle, which helps us all in better understanding our heritage.
THE SEARCH FOR THE PARENTS OF ANDREW DONLEY DAINES
In 1998, I retired from work and finally had the time to review and verify the information gathered by my father and to begin the process of locating birth certificates, marriage certificates, death certificates and gravesites of my descendants. I also hoped to gain more information on family lore that my grandfather had passed on to family members prior to his death in 1968. Specifically I hoped to find information on the following family lore:
In contemplating how to begin my project, I determined the first step was to gather available information on the Internet regarding the Daines family genealogy. This effort produced a great deal of information that was very informative, but also confusing. The information was confusing because I could not locate Andrew Donley Daines in any of the Daines or Dains research records and especially those related to Asa and Abial Dains. The most rewarding aspect of searching the Internet was the discovery and contact with many new "cousins" from all over the United States who offered to help with my project by providing their research work on the Dains family. The first contact was with Katherine Colburn from Columbus, Ohio, who provided me with her list of the descendants of Abraham Dains. Others also providing information on the Dains family were Audrey Moran, Robert (Bob) Dean and Roger Dean.
After reviewing much of the new information it became apparent that my father had assumed that Abial Dains was Andrew’s father because Alson and Alles (Alice) were listed as relatives in the newspaper clipping concerning the death of Alson and the same letter also said Abial Dains had twin children named Alson and Alles born in 1846. It is obvious that this connection was also made by other researchers because the 1850 Ohio census shows Alson and Alles, age 4, residing with Abial and Rebecca Dains. In retrospect, I wonder if any one considered the possibility that Alson and Alles were grandchildren rather than children, especially when considering the ages of Abial and Rebecca in 1850 and also the custom, at that time, of family members living with uncles, aunts and grandparents. Further complicating my efforts was the fact there were several other Andrew Dains’ in and around Meigs County, Ohio in the 1800’s and that researchers had different information regarding the Dains family tree. I quickly learned that genealogy research is like conducting an investigation in that you develop and follow leads hoping to find the right information. Often these leads go nowhere, but sometimes they are instrumental in leading you to the correct information or, at the least, developing a new lead.
The first important lead concerning the parents of Andrew Donley Daines came in January 2000. Brad Behrens, while reviewing census records at the National Archives, found Andrew and Eliza Dains in Clifton, West Virginia in 1870 and 1880 and Eliza in Columbus, Ohio without Andrew, in 1900, 1910 and 1920. More importantly, he found Andrew, age 16, living with the family of Nelson and Charlotte Dains in Salisbury Township, Meigs County, Ohio in the 1860 census. It could not be determined if Andrew was with the family in the 1850 census. It appears that the census taker may have ruled a new line through the entry for Samaria, the daughter of Nelson and Charlotte Dains, in order to split the line to add Andrew. I agree with Roger Dean that the copy is poor and illegible; however, the possibility exists that it could be a notation to add Andrew as there appears to be some writing above the ruled line or it might also be a film splice. Brad wondered if Andrew could be related to Nelson Dains and also asked if anyone was familiar with the family. During a trip to Columbus, Ohio in the spring of 2001 to find and photograph the tombstones of Andrew and Eliza Daines, I also visited the Franklin County, Ohio Genealogy Society. In a reference book on Ohio marriages, I discovered that a Nelson Dains married Catherine Johnson on March 29, 1843 and a Nelson Dain (Dains) married a Charlotte Gilleland on April 28, 1849. I also found in burial records that Catherine, wife of Nelson Dains, died on March 4, 1847 and was buried in Keebaugh Cemetery in Orange Township, Meigs County, Ohio along with Asa and Jane Dains, Abial and Rebecca Dains and the wife of Emory Altman, Alice Altman (Dains). In view of this information, I felt there could be a definite link between Andrew Donley Daines, Nelson Dains, and Asa and Abial Dains. The possibility existed that Andrew, along with his brothers and sister, were the children of Nelson’s first marriage to Catherine Johnson and Will, the half brother, a child of Nelson’s second marriage to Charlotte Gilleland. I should also note that Audrey Moran’s research listed Nelson Dains as a son of Abial Dains, but had no information as to birth, marriage or death.
During this same period, at the suggestion of Bob Dean, I requested and received from the National Archives the complete Civil War pension and military records of Andrew D. Daines. There was no information regarding the parents of Andrew, however, I did discover that he abandoned his family and moved into a boarding house with a Melissa Gerry in December 1892. The pension records indicated Andrew was separated from Eliza and the children until his death in Spilman, West Virginia on December 18, 1910. The records also contained a deposition by Eliza Daines that to a degree validates the information contained in the newspaper clipping found in the bible of Samuel Dains concerning the death of Alson Daines. Eliza stated that at the time of the deposition, on March 29, 1911, Andrew’s only living relations were a half brother by the name William Daines living on the Bedford Road and a brother Jimmy somewhere in Texas, who never came back after the war. It also appeared from the depositions contained in the pension file that he normally went by Donley rather than his given name, Andrew.
While sorting out all of this information with my sister and discussing the possibility of Nelson Dains being the father or even an uncle of Andrew, we decided to verify the Daines family link to the Eddy family through our great grandmother, Eliza Ann Wilson. Thomas A. Eddy, the President of the Eddy Family Association, not only verified the relationship through our great great great grandmother, Laodicea Eddy, but also provided the association’s records as contained in the 1930 publication "Eddy Family in America", which lists Nelson and Catherine Dains as the parents of Donley (Andrew) Dains. After receiving this unexpected information, I asked my uncle, Roy W Daines, the present patriarch of the family, if he had ever heard of Nelson Dains or ever heard his father mention the name of his grandfather or grandmother. My uncle stated at no time did his father ever talk about his grandparents or mention their names.
With this information in hand, I began a search to verify the other siblings mentioned in the newspaper clipping. Subsequently, I found the burial site of Alson Daines in Rosehill Cemetery in Texarkana, Texas. Alson had died on November 6, 1907 in Hubbard City, Texas. Again this research produced some more cousins that were the direct descendants of Alson Daines and his wife, Margaretta. Like our family, they thought that Abial was the father of Alson. Jeanne Daines, a newly found cousin, was aware that Alson had a twin sister and a brother that at one time lived in Texas, however, it was her understanding that he had moved back to Ohio. She was not aware that Alson had a brother Andrew Donley or a half brother, William Daines. She was aware that the family originally came from Meigs County, Ohio.
I was able to find very little information on Alson’s twin sister Alice. She married Emery (Emory) Altman August 8, 1869 in Meigs County, Ohio. The 1880 Ohio census shows Emery and Alice Altman in the same household; however in the 1900 census Emory Altman, age 54, is living alone. In reviewing other information, I feel Alice’s husband’s first name was Emory and not Emery since Andrew and Eliza named a child Joseph Emory Dains. The assumption is that Alice died prior to the 1900 census. We know that Eliza did not name Alice as one of Andrew’s living relatives in 1911. I have not been able to locate a death certificate for Alice. The Meigs County Historical Society checked for Alice Altman and Alice Dains from 1867 to 1908 with no success. In my opinion the Alice Altman, wife of Emory, who died on May 5, 1898, and was buried in Keebaugh Cemetery in Meigs County, is in all probability, Alice Daines.
In reviewing census records for William Dains, I found nothing until 1880 when William, age 19, was shown residing in the household of his mother, Charlotte Dains. I later wrote for and received a copy of William A. Daines’ death certificate from the State of Ohio. William died on January 1, 1929 and his parents are recorded on the death certificate as Nelson Daines and Charlotte Gilleland. William Daines was, in fact, the half brother of Andrew, James, Alson and Alice and a child of Nelson’s second marriage to Charlotte Gilleland.
The final piece of information that tied everything together came as I searched for a Reverend James D. Daines in Texas. I had found a James D. Daines that had served with the 6th US Cavalry and established the regiment had been sent to the Texas frontier shortly after the end of the Civil War. It appeared that this could have been how James ended up in Texas after the Civil War and never returned to Ohio. A request to the National Archives for the pension files of James D. Daines was returned indicating they were unable to locate the requested records. Fortunately, Roger Dean forwarded a packet of information from his research that proved to be the final link to our Dains family tree. It included a signed affidavit by James D. Daines on March 1, 1915, in which he submitted the following Statement of Facts to the Commission of Pensions in Washington D.C.
The pension files also stated that James was a Minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, which accounts for the use of Reverend with his name.
The information outlined here, along with the supporting documentation consisting of census records, pension records, publications, death certificates, bible records and other legal documents have finally allowed me to establish that our great great grandfather and grandmother are, in fact, Nelson Dains, son of Abial and Rebecca Dains, and Catherine Johnson. It is also interesting that the newspaper clipping found in the family bible of Samuel Dains, a cousin of Nelson’s family, was true in regard to the naming of the relatives.
In addition, it is appropriate to discuss those items that I have not found in my research. I still do not have an answer for why Alson’s twin sister, Mrs. Emory Altman (Alice), was included as a living relative in the newspaper clipping concerning the death of Alson Daines in 1907, if she died in 1898. The locations of the burial sites of Andrew D. Daines and his father, Nelson Dains, have not been located. Roger Dean feels that Andrew is buried in Adamsville Cemetery in Mason County, West Virginia or in Adams Cemetery in Chester Township, Meigs County, Ohio. He thinks that Nelson is buried in the Gilleland Cemetery in Bedford Township, Meigs County, Ohio.
As to the family lore that had been passed on for generations, I found the following during my research.
This endeavor also established that our line of the Daines family should also be eligible to join the Sons of the American Revolution and Daughters of the American Revolution because of the already verified service of Asa Dains, the father of Abial Dains and Ebenezer "Zerry" Dains and Nathan Eddy, on the Eddy side of the family.
Along with this written description of my trials and tribulations in finding my great great grandparents in Part One, is the immediate family descendancy from Abraham Dains (Daynes) and on my great grandmother’s side from William Eddye. We should be very proud that our forefathers were a part of the early settlement of this country in the 1600’s. Although no one has substantiated the parents of Abraham Dains, we at least now know the genealogy of the Dains/Daines family in America. The genealogy is arranged with my paternal family as Part Two, followed by the genealogy of my great grandmother, Eliza A. Wilson’s lineage to the Eddy family in Part Three. The information in Part Three relating to the Eddy Family was taken from the 1930 publication, "The Eddy Family in America". The numbering system used for our descendents from the Eddy family is taken directly from that book. I have updated the information related to Eliza Ann Wilson and her brothers and sisters and added the descendents of the Daines side of the family. In the future, I also hope to add Part Four, the genealogy of my maternal family, Botts.
It is hoped that this history of our immediate family will allow our children and their children to learn more about the ancestors that came before them. This should only be considered a starting point and not the end. It will be our future generations’ task to carry on this heritage and continue recording the history of the Daines family.
THE DESCENDANTS OF ABRAHAM DAINS
ABRAHAM2 DAINS (UNKNOWN1) was born about 1640 in North Yarmouth, near Casco, Maine or possibly Devonshire, England and died before January 1690/91 in Norwich, New London County, CT. He married SARAH PEAKE December 27, 1671 in Windham County, CT or in New London County, CT, daughter of William and Elizabeth Peake. She was born 1651 in Norwich, New London County, CT, and died in Lynne, CT.
Notes for ABRAHAM DAINS: (Bob Dean)
Due to limited education and poor writing skills during these early times, the name Dains was spelled various ways. Some records such as ship passenger lists and census reports have recorded the name as Dain, Daynes, Deens, Deenes, Deans, Deanes ...but church records and others such as land deeds and entitlements confirm the accurate version to be Dains. The present-day version, Dean, first appears about 1750.
LDS Church records indicate Abraham Dains probably was born in Devonshire, England and arrived at Casco, Maine (now Portland) probably in the autumn of 1663. Casco was a small seaport village in the 1660's and was constantly subjected to night raids by the Indians who burned cabins, killed and scalped the men, carrying off the women and children into captivity. Abraham, finding the Maine winter and living conditions too rough, apparently moved during the following spring to New London, CT. According to Savage, Abraham arrived at New London from Casco" in 1664. A further reference indicates court orders were published in that year prohibiting the use of "cardes and shuffleboards," and warning the inhabitants "not to entertain strange young men." Transient residents who were not grantees and householders, were the persons affected by this order and it aroused them to the necessity of applying for permission to remain. Among the roll of petitioners we find the name of Abraham Dains. "All other sojourners not mentioned carrying themselves well were allowed to live in the towne, else lyable upon warning to begone". It would seem Abraham Dains was a newcomer to the town. A letter from the Connecticut State Library at Hartford states that Abraham DAYNES of New London, 1664, "is supposed to have come from Casco, Maine".
As stated earlier, the parents and birth place of our ancestor Abraham Daines has not been established, so I feel it is also appropriate to mention other possibilities that are being explored by researchers. A letter sent to Bob Dean from a Tracy Burr discusses her looking at a possible link to Ireland. She states "Started looking at Colonel Richard Deane (1610-1653) who served with Cromwell, was one of the Regicides who signed the Death Warrant of King Charles I, awarded estate in Ireland by Cromwell. He became Admiral of the Navy, was killed by a cannon ball at the Battle of Forsland against the Dutch". She indicates it had always puzzled her that the name Abraham is so biblical, yet in searching the Daines/Dean records she could not find a similar pattern. In Ireland she found the name Moses, Matthew and Joseph, to include a Major Abraham Deane. Although she has not been able to make the connection it still appears to be a theory worth pursuing. This would still maintain the English ancestry but change the location of where the Dains immigration to America began.
It was at New London that Abraham met Sara Peake whom he married on December 27, 1671. Sara had come to New London with her father, William Peake and her two brothers, William Jr., and John in 1620.William Peake's residence in New London was west of the town plot on the path leading to Fog-Plain. The marriage of his daughter Sarah to Abraham Daynes is recorded in New London, as are the births of some of their children. Deane’s "A Family Tree In America", states that the first seven years after their marriage, Abraham and Sara remained at New London where three of their seven children were born. In about 1678, Abraham moved his family twelve miles north to Norwich where he remained until his death". The next several generations of the family seem to have lived in the region of the towns of Norwich, Canterbury, Plainfield and Washington in the counties of New London and Windham, Connecticut. "Abraham Dains died before 1691, for his widow Sarah married Micah Rood, January 15, 1691".

She was born June 18, 1766 in Voluntown, New London County, CT, and died September 29, 1852 in Meigs County, OH.
Notes for ASA DAINS: (Bob Dean)
Soldier in Revolutionary war both as a militiaman and a regular, as well as a year aboard the privateerman "Oliver Cromwell." They came to Belpre, OH in 1793 and lived on "The Farm" - a frontier fortress, until 1795 when the Indians were supposedly vanquished from the territory. Asa was granted 100 acres "up Duck Creek" for bearing arms against the Indians. One of the first families to settle in Meigs and Athens Counties, OH. Some family members were known as DEAN and this change in name was carried on for many years. This brings to light that Asa Dains/Dean was one of the first two settlers in Orange Township, Meigs County, OH. He and Jess Halsey built their cabins on opposite sides of a creek in 1800, the middle branch of the Shade River. Asa was a carpenter and millwright, and the Dains family has since had a number of carpenters. Asa built the first sawmill on Middle Shade and the Pratts Fork Dains family came from Orange Township, not too far from Cherry Ridge and Hemlock Grove.
First served in the militia as a child of 14. He enlisted in August 1778 and served one month as a private in Captain Daniel Cady’s Company, Colonel Chapman’s Connecticut Regiment in General Sullivan's Expedition. Asa enlisted again in July 1779 and served three months as a private in Captain Joseph Ransford’s Connecticut Company. In September 1780 he enlisted aboard the "Oliver Cromwell" out of New London, serving aboard ship until the last of March or first of April 1781. In 1782 he was back for a short time at Fort Griswold (Groton) then, beginning in August, served an enlistment for a year in a company out of Canterbury under the command of his Uncle Captain Benjamin Durfee, serving most of that time in New London.

Additional Notes Asa Dains: (Katherine Colburn)
"Asa was a skilled carpenter/builder and became a foreman charged with building a magnificent and opulent mansion for Harman Blennerhasset and his wife Margaret on the largest island in the Ohio River. The architect for the mansion was another New Englander, Colonel Joseph Barker. When completed, the mansion became the social and cultural center of the Northwest Territory, Western Virginia, Pennsylvania and Kentucky. The mansion has been restored in the past ten years, rebuilt to plans and specifications left by the builders. In it's time, the mansion was the largest and most opulent home in North America".

Notes for James Dallas Daines: (Guy Edwin Daines)
James Dallas Daines was born March 8,1845 and his mother, Catherine Johnson, died on March 4, 1847. At that time, he and his twin brother and sister, Alson and Alice went to live with their grandparents, Abial and Rebecca Dains. He remained with his grandparents until age three when he went to live permanently with his mother’s brother, John Johnson. During the Civil War he enlisted at Camp Chase, Ohio in Company A, 27th, Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry on July 27, 1861 under the name James Dean. James Dallas was appointed Corporal on January 1, 1864 and Sergeant on April 1, 1865. He was discharged on July 11, 1865. He then enlisted in Company D, 6th U.S. Cavalry on July 27, 1865 and served on Texas frontier fighting Indians until he was discharged at Jacksboro, Texas on July 28, 1868. On June 13, 1871, James Dallas Daines was married by Rev. Robert P. Thompson to Eugenia Slayton in Jefferson, Marion County, TX. His marriage certificate has the name James De Daines that he used until applying for a military pension. It is my belief, from reviewing his pension file, that the name was changed to De Daines due to an error during his enlistment in the 6th U.S. Cavalry. James also had the alias James Dean from his Civil War enlistment records. There is evidence in census and marriage records in Texas that his children continued to use the name De Daines into the 1900s. He lived in Jefferson (1869 to1872), Lafayette (1873 to 1880), Gilmer (1880 to 1883), Sulphur Springs (1884 to 1893), Crockett (1894 to1914), and Houston (1914 until his death in 1918) Texas. James Dallas was also a Minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church. Prior to his death he received a pension from the government for his service in the Civil War (Certificate # 1022563). He is buried in Hollywood Cemetery in Houston, TX.
Notes for Alson Daines: (Guy Edwin Daines)
Alson Daines the twin brother of Alice (Alles) was born on October 16, 1846 in Alford (Alfred), Meigs County, Ohio and his mother Catherine died on March 4, 1847. Alson, Alice and James went to live with their grandparents Abial and Rebecca Daines. He lived with his grandmother until at least 1870 as shown by the 1870 Ohio Census. During the Civil War he enlisted on February 11, 1865 in Company K, 187th Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry. He was mustered out in Macon, GA. on January 20, 1866. After the war he was still living with his grandmother Rebecca in Orange Township, Meigs, County, Ohio in the 1870 census. Alson was married by Justice of the Peace, Joseph Strong, to Margaretta Clark in Salem Center, Meigs County, OH on December 20, 1880. In 1881 he moved to Gilmer, Upshur County, TX and his first child was born there on May 20, 1882. My assumption is that Alson moved to Gilmer, Upshur County, Texas because his brother, James Dallas was living there at the time. Alson later moved his family to Texarkana, Bowie County, TX. He received a pension from the government for his service in the Civil War (Certificate # 1061395). Alson died in Hubbard City, TX on November 6, 1907. He is buried in Rosehill Cemetery, Texarkana,Upshur County, TX.
Notes for Alice Daines: (Guy Edwin Daines)
Alice Daines was born on October 16, 1846 in Alford, Meigs County, Ohio and also lived with her grandparents after the death of her mother. She married Emory/Emery Altman on August 8, 1869 in Meigs County, Ohio. It is believed that Alice died on May 5, 1898 and is buried with other members of the Dains Family in Keebaugh Cemetery, Meigs County, Ohio.
Notes for William A. Daines: (Guy Edwin Daines)
William Daines was the half brother to Andrew, Alson, Alice and James from Nelson Dains’ second marriage to Charlotte Gilleland. In the 1880 Ohio census William, age 19, is living in the household of his mother, Charlotte Dains. His occupation is listed as blacksmith. Charlotte Dains, William’s mother, died at his home in Minersville, Meigs County, Ohio in early May 1908. William died on January 1, 1929 and is buried in Beech Grove Cemetery, Meigs County, Ohio.
ANDREW DONLEY9 DAINES (NELSON8 DAINS, ABIAL7, ASA6, EBENEZER "ZERRY"5, EBENEZER4, EBENEZER3, ABRAHAM2, UNKNOWN1) was born September 27, 1843 in Orange Twp., Meigs County, OH, and died December 18, 1910 in Spilman, WV. He married ELIZA ANN WILSON July 15, 1867 in Meigs Co., OH, daughter of William Wilson and Hannah S. Barton. She was born February 19, 1844 in Bedford Twp., Meigs County, OH, and died July 31, 1922 in Columbus, Franklin County, OH.
Notes for ANDREW DONLEY DAINES: (Guy Edwin Daines)
Served with K Company, 7th Regiment of the Ohio Cavalry during the Civil War. The name was originally always spelled "Dains", but on his discharge papers, appeared as "Daines." Family legend has it that the name was later spelled "Daines" to match that on the discharge papers, to expedite his wife Eliza receiving his service pension. A notarized document from the National Archives indicates the name officially went from Dains to Daines in November 1900 due to the spelling on his enlistment and pension records. Andrew's middle name was spelled four different ways in the documents from National Archives, but his signature used the spelling "Donley" and affidavits indicated he normally went by that name rather than Andrew. Prior to his death he received a pension from the government for his service in the Civil War (Certificate # 971858). He died at the home of Will Gosney in Spilman WV, on December 18, 1910 and believed to be buried in Adamsville Cemetery, Mason County, WV or Adams Cemetery, Meigs County, OH.
Notes for ELIZA ANN WILSON: (Guy Edwin Daines)
A deposition by Eliza on March 29, 1911 stated she and Andrew were raised in Bedford Township. Although abandoned by Andrew in1892, they were never divorced and she reared the children. Andrew and Eliza had eight children and not nine as shown by some researchers. Eliza is buried in Greenlawn Cemetery, Columbus, Franklin County, OH.

Perhaps further research will connect this family of Evernden with those Everndens which appear early in New England.

It is probable that Bennett, the wife of Obadiah was Bennett Ellis, daughter of John Ellis and his wife Elizabeth Freeman, daughter of Edmund Freeman. The Ellis family was of Sandwich where Obadiah spent his youth. Bennett Ellis was b. Feb. 27, 1649, which is four years later than Obadiah was born and she had a brother Joel Ellis. Note that Obadiah named a son Joel. Obadiah during the rest of his life had many dealings with the Ellis family and a Joel Ellis witnessed the codicil to his will.
