Do you have a source record for this child apart from a family tree? I haven't found a single mention of a son named Daniel apart from unsourced trees.

Ind. at the Vallonia Cemetery.  Her Find a grave memorial # 110171644 and his is 110162313. And I believe they had 8 Children together and possibly a child miscarried or missing. :

Samuel Burcham  B. 1766 - 1845 LVHQ ---VCN

I have more but let me know if you want those other records. I did go to Family Search.org and search genealogies and his family tree but It was also reported that they married around 1789 -1791.  But she was about 12 years old and not sure if she would have had Daniel.   Also it also said that there were gaps in between children to where maybe a child was missing or she might have had a miscarriage.  And I believe that Samuel might have been born in England because on FamilySearch.org it said that his wife was Mary Harper and that he was born in England, but it could have been another Samuel Burcham, or Bircham  Let me know if you need more help.   Nancy
