Do you have a middle name or approximate death date?  I am finding information on this name but want to make sure I'm looking at the right man.  Parents?  Wife? Kids?
1860 census:  birth year/place -1807/NY; home - Paterson West Ward, Passaic, New Jersey; Profession - laborer

Others listed in household/Age:  Hester/38 (wife?); 3 girls and 6 boys listed ages 4 mos to 18 years.  Is this him?

Also, found on 1850 census and several other documents.
Yes this is my Daniel Conklin. (My great-great-great-grandfather) I believe his middle initial is P. from a famly Bible in my possesion.  He and his wife Hester are my brick wall.  I don't know who his father or mother are and so I do not know which line of the 3 Conklins I belong to.  Any info you have would be geat!
Awesome! I will downlaod all documents I can find and then upload them here for you. I will keep looking and keep you posted.
Extremely Awesome.  Looking forward to seeing what you have.
It appears you have all the information that I am finding.  I am looking on  I am sorry!  I am new to wikitree and should have viewed your profile first to see what information you had already.  I actually thought I was going to help someone!!  So Sorry!  But regardless I will keep looking and let you know if I find anything.
