I'm looking for the parents (and further up) of my husband's gggg grandmother, Betsey Dann (b. 9/4/1777, d. 12/5/1857, buried Highland Falls). Betsey married Daniel Slauson (1765-1846) and Betsey's father has been named as Nathan Dan--- and I don't know anything further for sure, though I have suspicions. Betsey's father's name of Nathan Dan makes sense as my husband's ggg grandfather, Nathan Dann Slauson, would seem to be named for his grandfather. These folks were all in the Stamford and New Canaan, CT and Pound Ridge, NY areas. I have genealogy on the Clawson/Dann line down from Francis, but can't make our link. Does anyone know Betsey Dann's mother's name? Could it be Sarah Wheeler? Or which Nathan Dann her father was? There are a couple possibilities.
I've written to CT library and they weren't able to help me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
