Hi Beverly, this is a little late in coming but I haven't been in here in a while. I hope you are still interested in your roots. I'm sure by now you know about Amanda Jane Dant, but in case you don't. I have Amanda Jane Dant born January 8th, 1826. This is from the Dant bible inscriptions I have a copy of. Her brother Joseph Marcellus Dant is my G G Grandfather.
