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.
Your friend and brother,
