William H. Danforth

I have found a record that William H. Danforth purchased 80 acres of land on 9/1/1856 described as E 1/2 of NW in sec. 20 township 23 North/ 9 East.
and on 10/1/1858 40 acres of land described as SE of SE of sec. 8, township 21 North, 6 East. Now can someone tell me are those descriptions for land in Portage county?
Was this William H. Danforth really my 2-great grandfather, William Henry Danforth? or is there 2 different William H. Danforths here? The 1860 census showed my William Henry Danforth living in Adams co., WI. Fran
