1860 census was a little bit trickier. I searched in Ancestry.com for Jarratt Dalton and I found nothing. I started scrolling through all the Daltons and then I tried just going through the Northern District census for 1860, but to no avail. And then I thought about his neighbors. Why not check Tabitha Ward and and see who is living near her in 1860. They were living side by side in 1850 so why not in 1860. I found Tabitha and I found him. The transcriber for ancestry.com had written his name as Janett P. Dutton.

Now we know that they are living near Tabitha Ward and that they are farm Laborers. Could they have been working for Tabitha at some point. I don't know, but I do know this. Young Jarrett Dalton's son Albert married Rose Dove. Rose Dove was the great granddaughter of Tabitha Ward. Albert would marry Rose and in doing so own some of the property which once belonged to the land baron John Ward. Albert would live out his life on this land.
By the 1850 and 1860 census we have found Jarrett Dalton's brothers and sisters. His mother's name was Mary. She was not listed in the census of 1860. So we must assume that she died between the years 1850 and 1860.
