Francis P. has been the only known wife of Daniel T. Dansby, although many have thought that Francis was his second wife.I believe I have found that first wife.Her name is Patience Rabb, and she is the daughter of John Rabb and Renthea Glazier.According to the will of John Rabb, their grandfather, the children of Daniel and Patience are:Patience, William, Renthea, Priscilla, John and Elizabeth Dansby.
