Biographical / Historical

Danford Booth (1804-1890) was a farmer in Manchester, New York, and knew the family of Oliver Cowdrey.

Danford Booth was born September 8, 1804, in New City, Rockland, New York to Sharon Booth and Ruth Gillet. He was a farmer in the Palmyra/Manchester area of upstate New York. He was married to Caroline Caldwell, and they had one son before her death in 1830. Danford then married Sarah "Sally" Morgan, and they had eight children. Sarah died in 1876, and Danford married Elizabeth Hoff the same year. Booth has been quoted in some documents related to the early Mormon church from interviews regarding his relationship and knowledge of early Mormon leaders, particularly Oliver Cowdery.

Danford Booth died January 13, 1890, and is buried in Brookside Cemetery, Shortsville, Ontario County, New York.
