This is a brief history of the particular branch of the Danner Family in America that descended down to my wife, Suzanne Marguerite Danner.
In this history, I try to trace the early Danners who left the area of the Rhineland in Germany in the early 1700s and came to William Penn's colony in America. The family moved into the Carolinas before the Revolution and then to Kentucky after the Revolutionary War and then into Indiana and the Mid West shortly after 1800.
The family has a rich and interesting history. I am basically covering the direct line descending down to Howard Danner, my wife's father. The addendum contains short histories of families that have married into and become a part of the Danner Family; The Bryants, Vandeveers, Pensingers and Samuels.
