First Name:

The Danaher Rindos family of Livingston, Montana

Updated November 9, 2000

About Our Family Research

The Danaher family history in Montana spans a century, but there is a big gap in time where our Montana connection was not discussed. My great-great-grandfather, Major Thomas Danaher left his wife and family in Thomaston, Connecticut to prospect for gold in the late 1870's. Whether or not he was successful in his quest remains unknown. We do know, however, that he became a celebrated man because a river, meadow and a mountain were named after him in the Bob Marshall Wilderness area of Northwestern Montana. Some years after his departure from Connecticut he had someone send word to the family that he died, which was untrue.
Learning more about this colorful character is what has inspired me to know more about my history and my connection to Montana's past.
