Page 297, #72 Daniel Cresap. Again on page 311, which shows 3 children which match this Daniel Cresap. However, page 297, show him as the son of Robert Cresap, born 1767. The birth date for Daniel was taken from Find A Grave, and his gravestone. If his birth date is correct, then Robert would have been 15 years old when Daniel was born. An unlikely event. It is very probable that Robert is not his father, at least in this source.
Possible father could be #12, Van Swearingen Cresap, 1760-1820. (Pages 294, 296) Son of Daniel, #2.
His son, Daniel, has a son, Daniel, who's gravestone has "Daniel" with a very clear Roman numeral "V". Daniel the 5th. This gives a clue as to possible lineage. However, this means that there is now a conflict with the birth date with Edward Otho Cresap, as a sibling. The birth dates are actually very close, within days. Could they have actually been twins? Needs more research.
