A lot of the Surry/Sussex Masons, desc. of Capt. John and Elizabeth, are in the Albemarle Parish Register.  I had to piece together the entries to get my best estimate of who their children were.  I do not have Daniel included.  Some of the information and links on Wikitree are unsubstantiated and likely some wrong - stick to original sources if you care about having it right.

Ok I will stick to the original sources  if Daniel lines up as my Great Great Great Great  Grandfather and  you can't find nothing to prove this information do I need not to be concerned with nothing else about this line at this time ?and was they a son Daniel ? I'm confused with this , all im looking for is so all the information connecting Danial Mason to Winfield , Harrison and Scott family is it correct, if all this is correct and all the sources is all the proof I need then I'm happy,  Thanks,  Mikey
You're lumping too much together.  Good, original, sources usually apply to individual facts about certain people.   Compiled genealogies that cover a whole family or groups of families are more prone to include incorrect information.  And internet family trees based on such sources are the worst of all.  But in general, no it's not all likely to be correct here on this site.  You really need to verify each bit of data with a reliable source.  Everybody would like to do it the easy way and just copy everything already posted somewhere.  But what you have that way is not good genealogy.

I and others related to this line probably can't do your whole branch for you, but we can discuss specifics on the common ancestors.  The Harrison connection for Elizabeth for example is one I still don't trust or use in my own data because no good sources are known.  I compiled my list of the children years ago and don't recall why Daniel was not among them.   I still have a copy of the parish register I can refer to for specific questions.  But I won't try to explain all of it at once.  If you have specific questions, post here or on the appropriate profile.   And try to be patient (not my strong suit either) for a good response.
