Willam Harold, "Jack", Danner, (1908-1950), was the 4th child and 1st son born to Aylmer Bright (A.B.) Danner and Violet Elizabeth (Durley) Danner. Jack was married to Mary Ellen Essick, d/o Dr. Raymond Brooke, (M.D.) and Nelle Margaret, "Nellie/Mimi", McLaughlin Essick. They had 3 daughters between the years of 1945 and 1951. Jack Danner's place of interment is Saint Andrew's (Catholic) Cemetery which is located East of and adjoining the Tower Grove Cemetery, in Murphysboro, Jackson County, Illinois.

By all accounts quite a character. A favorite story is the time Jack smuggled a Turkey onto the train, fell asleep and the Turkey got loose. His sisters were ready to kill him then.

Another time he hopped a freight with some buddies. They were caught. The cops discovered he had a pass for the passenger trains as his Dad worked for the RR. Why ride for free when you can hop a freight... Where's the fun in that?

Jack worked for the MoPac RR as a brakeman. His father Alymer was a Conductor on the Mobile and Ohio
