We are indebted to DGS member, Mike Dalton of Portland, Oregon for the contents of this file. Mike has gone the extra mile to extract Daltons from obscure sources, to weave them together and make connections easy to identify. Early Birth records are sparse but wherever possible Mike has included birth dates, places and parents within the death records. Daltons migrated to Oregon from many States, Canada, Scotland, Ireland and England and the records read like mini bios.
