This site will have downloadable files which contain genealogy relating to the Paschal/Paschall families of America with some British connections for a few lines. History note: Modern Paschal research was instituted by Edward Early Paschal(1866-1930),K536. Many, many people have contributed to these files besides myself over the last 40 years. Many of the old errors are corrected(see biographies below). Only the Paschal line is researched in depth but spouse data is included.SOURCE notes by the 1000's are included. I believe in FREE genealogy!! Please send data/corrections to: Clarence E. McDaniel; email to: clarencemcdan AT gmail.com replace AT with the symbol @, no spaces; put word paschal somewhere in subject line.
Nov 26, 2013- I have been writing up the biography of William(willm) Paschal(l) for some time now I will add a quick view point here. Feel free to copy and post it(in work).(please include Fig. pages).
I have bought a new DELL WIN 8 computer and am going at it hard. It sure is different but my old XP was dying.I gave up on the, "company store" (shades of Tenn. Ernie Ford) and took computer to Office Max and they downgraded it to WIN 7.
When I receive an email with info about a P'l ancestor(name, time, place) I proceed to look up in my file and ID the line, etc. I then ask the person submitting the info for their permission to post the info citing their name, city, state. If I get a query asking about the submitter, I send it them so they can decide what to do. Several persons have met lost cousins in this manner. My only request is that they keep me in the loop so that ALL Paschal's benefit. There are over 8800 P'ls in my file, most born before 1900. I believe people should do their own leg work after 1900...they can start with the free 1940 census and work back.

Here is a list of of my web files made with PAF5(replaced by Ancesral Quest). They are in .htm format with indexes.
Here is a list of of my Paschall biographies and other items.> Paschall Biographies
A brief history of Paschal-Paschall genealogical research. Paschall Research history
Since the PAF RIN numbers are useless, I have placed the ID codes as the first line in the notes for each person surnamed Paschal(l). This code is more than a number; please read,ID Code document found in this biography section. Please refer to this code when writing for info. There are found here 100's of william paschal(l)s.
NOTICE: Some of you have asked about my connection to the Paschall line. Here are some photos:
*** McDaniel line: My mother married Gene Brown McDaniel. His line came from SC(now Laurens Co area) about 1807 to the east bank of the Cumberland river just above the TN state line(Linton, KY). The patriarch here was Morgan McDaniel(c1772 - 1845). This section contains what is known concerning Morgan McDaniel and his descendants. Morgan McDaniel
There are two major lines of the PASCHAL-PASCHALL family to be found today in America. In the 1920-1930's these lines were given the designations:
A English lines(for ref only- not in Anerica)
B Philadelphia line of Thomas Paschall(1634-1718) (the T21 line has been added as a part of this line). Tom B
C North Carolina line of Willm Paschal. William(1704-1774)of the NC land grants
SHOUT it everywhere: William of NC land grants(C-line) is NOT repeat NOT descended from Thomas (B-line) of Philadelphia. This claim, began in the 1930's by Rev. J C Paschal, continues today. It was based on the name William, a grandson of Thomas. This gson died in Phila in 1751. See this document: here Also here is an extract of J C Paschal's own letter of 1937 in which he realizes his mistake. It is easier to start a rumor than stop it! here1 here2 If this doesn't convince you how about the US Supreme Court? They too decided he died before 1754! http://supreme.justia.com/us/49/263/case.html
HERE is the evidence you need to show that the grandson, William Paschall, B11, of Thomas,B, of Phila. was NOT William Paschal,C, of the NC Land Grants. The grandson, William Paschall, B11, married, lived and died in Phila. This is from the Notes of John Parker written in 1885 in Phila. The notes are on Family History Library(FHL) microfilm #0000348. here

CENSUS UPDATES: I have updated my files to include the 1910, 1920,1930 and 1940 censuses for most of the USA. Great indexes were used to get the job done and it was a job. This should help those having problems getting started. Children born after 1901 were not included in order to keep the size down.
LIBRARY: In my home I have a collection of papers (600# in 30 loose-leaf notebooks) relating to Paschal history covering a 75+ year research effort by many people. This collection is indexed by the Paschall ID's. Some of the papers are very rare and exist only in this collection. I will usually scan an item and send it to interested persons. There is no charge for this.
QUESTION: Where did the American Paschalls come from? About 1987 Dale R Paschal,F33423,(1919-1997) came by my house on one of his visits. He had been to England and brought back a pamphlet titled, "St Mary's Church Great Baddow", by David Papworth, publ 1973. The pamphlet is 24 pages and goes into great detail of the history of this church. The history of the area starts about 1071 but the area of our interest begins on the 2nd page in 1547. I will put several of the pages here in .jpg format. Note: The Bristol Paschalls used the same coat-of-arms as those of Great Baddow. There are 5 generations of Johns that are traceable; from this line the Paschalls spread out all over England. So much for "French" ideas. Note: In the 1920's, a scam circulated about a Frenchman that died leaving a large estate. The promoter offered(for a fee) to determine if you might be a heir...many persons fell for this...The author shows that many Pascall's were living in England prior to the edit of Nantes(1685).
MORE: Update 4/19/2013 Stuart Simpson of the UK, is a Pascall descendant. He is from the Pascalls that lived in Dover, England, since early times. He has gathered up some lists and put these on his site. Recently I asked him to go to Great Baddow in Essex and photograph St Mary's Church there. He very graciously took the 2 hour drive and sent me a CD disc with 409 pictures! He has determined, among other things, that the origin of the Pascalls whether it be St Mary, the Virgin, Dover, or St Mary's, Great Baddow, is uncertain; they both had Pascalls back to the first records available(c1545).
This section will contain maps. These show the NC Paschal land grants and some of the migrations of William's sons to other areas. Info is mostly from deeds.
***DOCUMENTS SECTION***Here you will find copies of various documents. You should be able to find your ancestor by his ID code. This code is found in the first line of the notes(sources) of your ancestor.
startThis is the first Paschal bulletin issued by Edward Early Paschal on Dec 1,1924
This is the 2nd Paschal bulletin issued by Rev. Jacob C Paschal on MAY 1936
This is the 3rd Paschal bulletin issued by Allen & Mary Johnston on DEC 1972Note:I have these buttetins up to #33. The Johnstons had procured a mimegraph machine and cut stencils printing on legal size newsprint paper.For their Elisha book they cut 1200 stencils!
This is the 35th Paschal bulletin issued by Roger Nichols of Paris, TN, Summer 1986.Note:I have these buttetins up to #41. They had photos and info but poor editing.
Here is an interesting document for those seeking membership in patriotic societies. These documents were issued by NC to provide evidence of Revolutionary War service/aid. I have these for other sons also.
This group of documents from St Clair/Randolph Co, IL, is very interesting.Shows French connections.
NEW JERSEY SECTION
Here are William Paschall,C, records in New Jersey from 1730 to 1739.
Here are scans of will/probate information in various forms:
Here are scans of an extract of a lost Bible. The B28-T21 line.These scans may be the only existing copies. This extract was sent to Thomas Wright Paschal,T2112124, in the 1925 era. I have the letters concerning this.
Here are scans of a Paschal D-line Bible in the possession of Vicki Watkins of Gwinnett Co, GA, who has kindly given permission for me to place them online. The Bible has been damaged by weather and time but the family pages are OK. Bible was passed down from William, D31, though his dau, Elizabeth, D312, who married John Bentley. In the 1920's, Charles Bentley gave extracts from a Bible to the original Paschal family genealogist, Edward Early Paschal, K536. I believe this is the Bible from which that info came. It appears that the first 2 pages are hand printed copies from another source, likely a Bible of Samuel,D, probably now lost.
Here is the Bible of William,D3, and family. This is a copyrighted book so I ?11/?26/?2013only give the URL of the online page: page 354
This Bible was sent to me by Marilyn Konstanty, a descendant.
This page is from the book, "Ninety-Four Years" by G W Paschal,F24, publ 1871.
Here are the pages of the Bible of James Howse Paschal, H241, sent to me by his grandson, Samuel Beauregard Paschal. The Bible was given to James and his wife at their marriage in 1869. Sam says the Bible is in very fragile condition and he does not think he can make more copies. Sam has made a transcript of the Bible data and I only put here the 1st page of the Bible and then Sam's transcript.
Here are copies of pages of the Bible of Benjamin M Paschal, H27 given to me by Dianne B Pinckard a descendant
Here are copies of pages of the Bible of Alfred Paschall, H611 in the Henry Co ,TN, register's office.
Here are 4 pages of the Bible of Benjamin, B278 given to me by Joey Preston of Anderson, SC. The Bible was published 1764. Inside the Bible were found other papers showing the Bible had been in a centennial exhibit in 1888 in Columbia, PA. I think Benjamin copied the info in the Bible from his father's older Bible which is in the Phila. Historical Society.
OLD LETTERS AND DOCUMENTS SECTION
This section contains old letters written mostly in the 1920-1930's era to/from Edward Early Paschal,K536(or his buddy, Walter B Paschall).They contain good-to-bad info of the time.
Here are B-line letters, c1924.
Here are letters of the C line, c1924.
Here are various letters, c1924.
SIGNATURES of WILLIAM PASCHALL
This section contains signatures of William, C, of NJ(1st 3) and of Willm, C, of the NC Land Grants(last 5) from 1729 to 1774. Notice the differences in style; I think they are the same person.
