Gold was first discovered in the Idaho region in 1860 and the migration began. The U. S. Congress made it a territory in 1863 and gave it statehood in 1890. Daltons were miners and farmers. From the following data it is apparent that their presence began to increase at the turn of the 20th Century. Dalton investments in land commenced in 1897 and many were owners of quarter sections or 160 acres that were most likely devoted to crop farming. The larger acreages were more likely to be livestock ranches.

There are 330 surnames in this file. Births by County of Record were added to the Marriage data but most birth and marriage records can only be obtained at the record office. Mike Dalton of Oregon has contributed Death Cerificate Records that also contain detailed information on the birthplaces of individuals and of their parents..
