Danner Family of Western North Carolina

Danner and Related Families

of Western North Carolina


My Grandparents,

Thomas Wesley Danner

and Sarah Alice Jones.

Welcome to Ray Danner's Home page. This genealogy page is about the Danner and related families who settled in Western North Carolina before the Revolutionary War. It is said that three of the four brothers listed below served in the war. I do have a copy of the Pension Request for Frederick Danner which validates his service and members of his family. George and John Danner received Payment Vouchers in 1782 for their service to the Salisbury District of North Carolina. I hope this site will help those of us searching for these family members to be able to communicate and fill in the blanks. Please feel free to contact me by way of mail, listed on the Surname page, or e-mail.

My mother's side of the family are related to the STEWARTs of Southwest Virginia, mainly Scott and Wise counties.
