February 28, 2010 Dalton Family

I am very lucky that I have family members that still live around the Pittsylvania County area and I still get back occasionally.

I knew by family information and also by the census records that Rose Dove and Albert Lee Dalton were married around 1894/1895.  In the 1910 census, they state that they have been married for fifteen years.
Your best bet is to go to the courthouse yourself or get a family member to drop by.  I had a family member go to the courthouse and they looked it up for me and found that Rose Dove and Albert Lee Dalton were married on October 9, 1894.
Information on Marriage License
County Married:  Pittsylvania County
Names:  A. L. Dalton and Rosa L. Dove
Time of Marriage October 9, 1894
Place of Husband's birth:  Pittsylvania County
Place of Wife's birth:  Pittsylvania County

Age of Wife:  21
Both were single
Husband's Parents:  J. T and Lucy W. Dalton

Wow, this is a treasure trove.
Below, I have the pictures of the grave markers.  This is a another handy tool for information that can be used as verifiable proof and sometimes without family members knowledge there is no way you would be able to locate these gravesites.  The Dalton Cemetery is located way off the beaten track in the middle of Westvaco timber lands.
