March 2, 2011 Dalton Family Jarrett T. Dalton

We have discovered the 1850 and 1860 census for Jarrett Dalton I found an 1870 census Subdivision North of Dan River  Census Taken  August 30, 1870
Jarret Dalton  Husband  Farmer  27
Lucy Dalton    Wife                    22
Albert L.   son  two years old
Lelia D.  3 1/2 years old
And a Nurse by the name of Sarah Stone living in the house.  Her age was 12.

I found a 1880 census  taken on June 5, 1880   Pigg River District 
Jarrett T. Dalton  36
Lucy W. - 31
Albert L - 12
Lelia T -10
Queen E-  8
David M. - 6
Asalem T - 4
William M - 1

I found a 1900 census 
Jarrat Dalton born July, 1843  He was 53 years old, widower, born in Virginia
Father and Mother born in Virginia
Lelia     Daughter born October, 1869     30 and single
Hester  Daughter born May 1872              28 and single
Timmy son   

I am finding a small discrepancy in the 1880 and the 1900 census.  In the 1880 census he has a daughter named Queen E. that is eight.  In 1900 there is a daughter named Hester E that is 28.  They must be the same person,but I don't know about the names.

But in any case, these are the facts as we know them from the census.

Jarret Dalton born 1843/44
Husband of Lucy
Eight children
son of Jarret P and Mary Dalton
lived in Pittsylvania County

I found his tombstone at the Dalton Cemetery in Sycamore, Virginia

J. T. Dalton  born July 17, 1843  died November 4, 1908
