"...brother to Abraham Dann, Abraham married Rebecca's sister Huldah." "In addition to him and his wife, his family in 1800 consisted of 1 male 10-16 and a female under 10, they lived near Abraham and Huldah in Westchester Co., Norwalk Probate records (Vol.l, pg.10) show that a David Beers (no place of residence given) chose Enoch Dann of Salem, N. Y. to be his guardian 6 Apr. 1803 and the court approved. To choose his own guardian a boy would have had to be about 14 years of age, possible making him born about 1789.
