Parents of: William Richard Tyner and spouse Agnes Sookie McDaniel or Daugherty?

0 votes
I have sources to show I am a descendant of William Richard Tyner, however recent findings of Tyner DNA project claim his parents are not Sarah Tyner and John Harris descendant. So, would like help figuring out who is parents are. DNA project shows he is related to Holmes. His second wife is suppose to be Agnes Sookie Susannah McDaniel married first to a Daugherty, then second marriage to Richard Tyner. I have found conflicting info that she wasn't a McDaniel married a Daugherty, but born a Daugherty. Would like help finding her parents. Family story is that she is Granny Hopper's daughter.

There is no such person as “Agnes Sookie Susannah McDaniel Daugherty Tyner.”  A woman named Agnes Daugherty, daughter of Charles and Mary (Downing) Daugherty, was born about 1818.  She married a man named “Black Haw,” believed by some to be Richard Tyner.  A totally different woman named Susan/Susannah/Sookie, possibly LNAB of McDaniel, was born about 1780-1785 and married James Dougherty, Jr.  They died about 1837.  

The magic of the Internet tree has mashed up these Cherokee women (born 35-40 years apart) and their husbands.  

It’s likely that William Richard Tyner had no connection to any of these people.
