Re: Gershom or Gersham Danks

In Reply to: Gershom or Gersham Danks by William Fulton of 88

Apparently he was b. 06 Aug 1791 in Northampton, Hampshire Co., MA (the LDS info is apparently incorrect perhaps, stating Addison Co., VT). Here's a brief bio from an old history on Ripon, WI I found tonight:

http://www.riponlibrary.org/Pedrick/Gen_Notebooks/Danks_Gershom.pdf

Caroline, Adelia (Adeline) are listed here with him.

I also found an 1840 Census of Lee Co., IA, which seems to be him - he is "wifeless" and Mary M. KEELER, Gershom's supposed wife, supposedly died in 1840 so this fits.

I'm piecing these "odd out" DANKS myself - let me know if I can help, we can share, etc. ...getting warmer...

Andrew
