John Dalton, Born Abt. 1840
« on: 05 January, 2009, 18:35 »
According to the 1870 Census of Laramie, Wyoming, my gggrandfather John Dalton was born in Canada.  The census lists him as being 30 years old.  Any help linking him to his birthplace and parents would be really appreciated.

Notes for CATHERINE DALTON:
b. date a/c 1901 CE.
Her Granddaughter, Catherine Mackie O'Connor used to tell of widow, Gammie Kinch as being poor but very proud, especially of her buffalo robe. When she would come to visit she would refuse to get out of her buggy and open the gate and of cpourse she it wouldn't be ladylike to shout. She would sit at the gate, she was "company" until someone noticed her and opened the gate.
Her date of birth is a/c the 1901 census of Lot 3.

Notes for LAWRENCE KINCH:
I was told by Marie Wade Wilkie [d.2002] Quincy MA] that he ran a ferry for crossing the Kildar River at his farm and that he drowned on the river. Then his widow didn't want to stay there so she exchanged the farm with a Mr Gillian from central Kildare. Lease records show that Lawrence Kinch had the property on the Kildare River that was later that of Mr Gillian. The Kildare Bridge was later built there. Tom O'Connor

We don't really know the story either. We were told it was a daughter of Mr. Kinch;s who drowned in the river , and they didn't want to live there any more, but have never gone any further in researching this out. Arlene
