Herring Daniel [Male] b. 1729 Bertie County, N.C. - d. 21 SEP 1797 Duplin Co. N.C.

Abstracts of Duplin County, NC Deeds, Book 1A, p. 8
p. 85. Daniel Herring to Stephen Herring, both of Duplin Co., 25 Oct 1783, for 110 pds. specie 3A on the NS of Goshen Swamp & on BS of Herring's Branch incl. a grist mill on it, the sd. Daniel Herring having had an order of the Court for the sd. mill Aug 1766. Wit: Arthur Herring, William O'Daniel, Alex (X) O'Daniel. Oct. Ct. 1784.

Herring Highlights II: Daniel's linkage as a son of Abraham Herring is based on interactions with his "brother" Abraham in Duplin County. They seemed to move together from Bertie County, and they were closely connected in deeds. A complicated Duplin County deed of 23 Dec 1794 suggests that Daniel and Abraham (then both dead) probably were brothers, links them to the Whitfield and O'Daniel families, and shows the families' interactions.
William & Elizabeth (Goodman) Whitfield had 10 children, among them, Sarah and Charity, had patented 300 acres on Goshen Swamp near Herring's Mill Branch. At one time or another both Daniel & Abraham had held deeds to this property, conveyed by William Whitfield. Abraham conveyed the land to Daniel Herring who, in turn, conveyed it to Owen O'Daniel, the son of Frederick and Charity (Whitfield) O'Daniel. In 1794, Owen O'Daniel married a Charity Herring on 16 June 1781.
For years books have indicated after the death of Sarah (Whitfield) Herring, Daniel married widowed sister Charity (Whitfield) O'Daniel, and by her had sons Benjamin & Whitfield Herring. Horace Fussell, Jr. a descendant of Daniel, found this to be false. Charity's husband Frederick O'Daniel died between 1761 and 1773, and Charity remained a widow until after 1780. By then both Benjamin and Whitfield Herring were adults.
The mill branch mentioned in the deed above figured in an earlier deed. On 25 Oct 1783, Daniel Herring sold 3 acres, including the grist mill, to his son Stephen for 110 L. Samuel had operated the grist mill since 1766. Daniel is in the patriot index as a soldier in the Revolutionary War.
