His wife was Catherine as proved by the birth of their son, John Danielly, who was born in 1743 in Queen Anne County, birth listed at St. Luke's Protestant Episcopal Church. There are no further records in Maryland for this James Danielly or Dannelly. Apparently, they left Maryland and were removed to Beaufort District, South Carolina where other Dannelly wills are recorded. Whether or not they ever resided in Georgia is unknown. The sons, John and James resided in Columbia (old Richmond) and Warren Counties near one another after having drawn land grants. In 1774 James and Catherine Danielly received a land grant in Washington County, Georgia which was filed in Richmond County, but located outside the town of old Wrightsboro (now Thomson) which is now in McDuffie County.
