I was born Alison Elizabeth Steil. My father's name is Thornton but he went by Ted. His mother was Florence Steil of Connecticut, USA. Florence's mother was Elizabeth Danaher. Elizabeth's brother John Danaher lived with Elizabeth and her family when she married for a short time, perhaps no more than a year. He appeared in only one census and then disappeared. It is possible that John Danaher was born in Ireland or Australia.
