Daniel Rash was a contemporary of President George Washington who was born February 22, 1732, and died in 1799. Daniel outlived him by about thirty-seven years. He fought with a Georgia Light Horse Company during the Revolutionary War.
Daniel Rash was born in Murtherkill Hundred, Kent, Delaware circa 1733. There are several different accounts of his age, but by all sources he was born by 1733, or earlier. In a biographical sketch about Daniel’s nephew, Moses Rash, the author states John and Micah (Wilson) had a son, “Daniel, who went to North Carolina, where he died at the advanced age of one hundred and nine years.” (Biographical and Genealogical Encyclopedia of the State of Delaware, [1888], pp. 1369, 1370).
From the same source a biography of Joseph T. Rash states that his great grandparents, John and Micah (Wilson) Rash had a son, Daniel, who “died in the west, aged one hundred and three.” (ibid., pp. 840 to 842).
From the 1787 State Census of North Carolina to the 1830 Census, Federal Census of that state Daniel’s age was in the same time period as above. The 1830 Federal Census of North Carolina shows Daniel to be over one hundred years old.
Daniel Rash married his first wife, Barbara Wallace, in about 1759, in Kent County, Delaware where his father-in-law, Matthew Wallace, wrote a will dated July 3, 1762: wife Agnes; sons Thomas, and David; daughters Barbary Rash, Barsheba and Janet Wallace; granddaughter Agnes Rash. Executor, wife, Agnes. Witnesses: James Hussey, Elizabeth Wallace, Deborah Williams (Probated September 25, 1762, Arch. Vol. A53, p. 5, Reg. of Wills, Liber K, folios 290-292).
Agnis (sic, Agnes) Wallace, the widow of Matthew Wallace, made a will dated April 16, 1770, in Murtherkill Hundred, Kent County, Delaware: heirs: daughter Jennet Wallace; sons Thomas and David; son-in-law James Lukons (sic, John Logan); grandchildren Agnis, John and Mirim (sic, Mariam) Rash, children of daughter Barbre (sic, Barbara). Executor, son Thomas. Witnesses, James Caldwell, Stephen Lewis, Mary Lee. (Probated May 14, 1770, Arch. Vol. A52, p. 168. Reg. of Wills, Liber L, folio 79).
The dates and names prove the children to be the same as the children of Daniel Rash of Wilkes County, North Carolina, thus identifying the first wife of Daniel Rash to be Barbara Wallace. Barbara Wallace Rash died before April of 1770 when her mother wrote her will.
