Have you checked the Encyclopedia of Mormonism? I don't know much about them except what I read in Harold Shindler's ORRIN PORTER ROCKWELL: SON OF THUNDER over 30 years ago. Apparently the Danites were a vigilante group organized to defend the saints during the persecutions in early Church history. There was a fellow named Dan Hickman who was one of the organizers and early leaders of the group. Because it was a secret society it never enjoyed Church sanction, and in fact it became a great liability for the Church because our enemies began making the false claim that it had been organized under priesthood authority and attributed every crime imaginable to the group. Most of this I am sure you already know. Unfortunately, I am not enough of a student of Church history to tell you more. I'm sure there must be others on the list that can add a lot more.
