I am trying to find information on Gershom Danks, born 1794 in Massachusetts? Gershom came from Massachusetts to Lorain County, Ohio in 1817 with George Douglass. He was a carpenter and helped build the town of Elyria, Ohio. In 1830, he was living in the township of Ridgeville, Lorain County, Ohio. In the late 1840's I believe that he was in the Ceresco Commune near Ripon, Wisconsin. In the 1850 and 1860 censuses for Rushford, Winnebago County, Wisconsin, a Gersham Danks is listed as living with the family of George and Mary Clark. Who were his parents and birthplace? What were the names of his wife and children? One child, Adelia Danks, was my 2nd Great-Grandmother. Any information on this family line will be appreciated.
