Gershom (Gersham) Danks was born August 6, 1791 at Northampton, Massachusetts according to records of the Ceresco Commune (Wisconsin Phalanx) located near Ripon, Wisconsin. His wife may have been Mary Keeler. Some of his children were Caroline Danks, Adeline (Adelia)Danks, and Henry C. Danks. Less certain children may have included J. Olmstead Danks and Celia Danks. It seems that many with the surname of Danks lived in Northampton or Hampshire County, MA but I have been unable to find Gershom Danks or to identify his parents there. Gershom was also in Westfield, Hampden County, MA and may have spent time in Addison County, Vermont. Does anyone know more about Gershom, his parents, or children?
