Marcus Lafayette Dalton of Texas
« on: 05 January, 2015, 15:56 »
I am looking for any information on the parents of Marcus Lafayette Dalton.  Marcus Lafayette Dalton, his brother George Washington Dalton and other brother Robert came to Texas around 1835 or so through Fannin County.  Marcus was born in 1819.  He arrived from Murfreesboro, Tennessee.  There has been some speculation that his father was Captain John Dalton who fought in the War of 1812.
Marcus died In Texas at age 50, and was married to Lucinda Gamble Dalton.  While there is copious information on his life in Texas (the first Chief Justice of Palo Pinto county, his ranch and his death (being one of the last to be killed by Native Americans), Marcus's early life is a mystery.
Thank you!  Please email me here, or at
