I see many trees on this site that have this family. Most are in error. Thomas Daft born May 1883 is the son of John Daft born England & Caroline whose mother is listed 1910 census as Anna Engle age 91.John Jr is son of John Daft and Catherine Maltby who married in Long Eaton, Derbyshire England. They came to states in 1871 and are in 1880 census of Springfield, Williams, Ohio.In that census is John age 38 born England, Catherine 38 born England, John 6 born Ohio, Elizabeth 5 born Ohio, Emma age 2 and Kat born Sept 1879 in Ohio.Follow John Sr, John Jr & Thomas in Williams County census: into 1900, 1910 & 1920.
