Napoleon Jackson Tecumseh Dana was my GG Grandfather, I have an old family pedigree book that was compiled probably around 1940 or earlier that was passed down to me, along with a few other things I could post later today when I have time, but here is one page for now from the pedigree book.

The 2nd scan is from further back, starting with Capt Luther Dana where the first page left off;

Back of page one notes per "see #16,19 21 back of this page"

Alfred L Dana's Blue Cross card, 1955 (Grand son of General Dana) The street address no longer exists as the house was demolished and a new street and houses built over the former site.

Census for 1940
Alfred L Dana and family, 68 Hicks Ln, Great Neck, NY the house still stands today looking much as it did in Googl streetview.
