I have already posted and proved that I am the granddaughter of Ira Lee Dalton and Velma Olvis Brumfield Dalton. I have taken my ancestry for Ira Dalton's father Albert back to 1806. That is for just the Dalton family. Now until I have time to research I cannot obtain any more definitive information about the Jarrett Dalton side. But wait, my grandmother Velma's mother was a Dalton too. So let's get that out of the way. Will grandmama and granddaddy be cousins. We will see.
By Velma and Ira Dalton's marriage license recorded in Campbell County, Virginia, we find that Velma Brumfield is the daughter of John Brumfield and Eliza Dalton.
My mother and aunt went to Pittsylvania County and picked up a copy of John Brumfield and Eliza Dalton's marriage license. They were married in Pittsylvania County, Virginia on October 18, 1883. He was 22 and she was 14. Oh, my. John Brumfield's father and mother were Vincent and Milly Brumfield and Eliza Dalton's mother and father were Winchester and Annie Dalton. They were united in marriage by William S. McDowell.
That was in 1883. Twenty three years before Winchester and Ann Dalton were united in marriage by the same man William S. McDowell. Now these two people were both Daltons. This will probably be very confusing. I ordered a copy of the marriage license from the bureau of vital statistics. They said the date of the marriage was November 29, 1860 at Pittsylvania County, Virginia. The Husband was Winchester Dalton and the wife Ann Dalton. He was 25 and she was 20. They were both born in Pittsylvania County and lived there. The occupation was farmer. The parents of Winchester Dalton were David Dalton. No first name was given for David Dalton's wife. Ann Dalton's parents were Booker and E. Dalton.
