I have a copy of "Early Settlers
of Barbour County Alabama , Vol.I & II" by Marie
Godfrey which has a listing of Dansbys. In that book,
Isham Beal Dansby was born 9/5/1855 in Alabama and
died 10/28/1915. "May have married Mary Joiner
20 June 1872. He is buried in Elam Baptist Church
Cemetary." I would trust your info. though since
it says "may have". It does not list their children.
Siblings, however, of Isham Beal are Hiram, Martha,
Elizabeth, Daniel, John, Winzey, George, Catherine,
Jane, Mahala (my great, great, great....), Monroe,
and Mary. They are all the children of John Dansby
and Sarah (last name unknown). He was b. 1805 in
South Carolina and she was born ca.1814-1817 in Georgia.
Johns' sibs were Daniel M., Isham M., Catharine,
"Daniel M. Dansby first entered land in 1827 in the South-
western edge of what is now Barbour co., Ala. In 1834, he and
John Dansby entered 40 acres jointly near Palmyra Church,
North of the Indian Boundary Line. In 1835 and 1838, John
Dansby entered more land near Daniel M. Dansby's
original patent. Charles Dansby entered land in 1836 in what
is now Bullock, Co.,Ala. Winza Dansby, a widow, was
born ca 1872. The name of her husband does not
appear in the Barbour Co. records. She died after 1850, as she
was enumerated that year in the household of Jesse
Johns (her daughter Catharine's husband) in Pike
Co., Ala."- text from above mentioned Barbour Co.
I'll send you an e-mail to let you know about another
distant cousin I've found who has more info.
