Manley/Manly DANFORTH, born in Kentucky married a WELLS daughter, Rosalinda WELLS, in Rock Island County, Illinois. It appears that he came to Oregon and appears in the Fed. Census of the Oregon Territory 1850 with a Joseph DANFORTH in Yamhill County, Oregon.

In the 1850 Oregon Territory Census, Joseph DANFORTH is age 60, born in New Hampshire, living with an E. S. CRANDELL family and a Rosalinda DANFORTH, b. 1801 in Vermont, and Manley DANFORTH, born in Kentucky.

Manley later married a Maria MALEY in 1851 in Amity, Yamhill Co., Oregon, divorced her in 1873 and presumably died in the state of Washington after 1880.
