    Notes 
    • White and Toole refer to him as Daniel Cordray, however on the 1870 Sabine County census he is listed as David, but as Daniel in 1880.  His first wife died in 1878 (according to her headstone at the Cordray Cemetery), and he is listed with his second wife, Martha, age 44, born ca 1836 in Alabama, at the time of the 1880 census.

      Could he have married third Dollie Wilson, sometime prior to 1884?

      Dollie Cordray, a widow, age 33,  can be found in the 1900 Sabine County, Texas Census with three minor children. The Texas Death certificate of the eldest son of the widowed Dollie Wilson Cordray, namely Cleveland Cordray, lists his father as Dan Cordray. Census records for the children show that their father was born in Texas, however, versus Georgia.

      This does not appear likely, as at the time of the 1900 Sabine County, Texas census, Daniel and his second wife, Martha appear together.

      Additionally, his widow, Mrs. Martha Cordray applied for a Civil War pension as the widow of D. C.  Cordray on 8 May 1915 in Sabine County. She indicated that she married him on 10 Oct 1878 in Sabine County. Martha further indicated she was age 82, and was born in Dallas County, Alabama. having resided in Texas for 42 years.  Her late husband, Daniel C. Cordray, was shown as dying on 30 Aug 1905. He was shown to have served the C.S.A. in the state of Georgia, for a period of five months, being discharged in April 1865. He was in the Infantry, Company A, Regiment 29.

      On the Williams-McNaughten Tree at Ancestry.com, he is shown as the Uncle of Mary Emma Cordray McGown (1885-1973), her father John Lawrence Cordray also being a son of Jonathan Cordray and Elizabeth Tomlinson. He is likely related to her in some other fashion, perhaps a cousin, as Georgia Marriage records on Ancestry.com show that Elizabeth Tomlinson and Jonathan Cordray were not married until 2 Apr 1846 in Muscogee County, Georgia, eight years after Daniel was born. DM Veitch instead shows him as a son of Daniel and Celia Cordray of Muscogee County, Georgia. Veitch shows that his second wife was Martha Williams Honeycutt, a widow, no issue by Daniel.
