Sharon The information I have been collecting on the Dils family shows minor differences, they are: A) Adam Dils b. May 27, 1781 d. April 18, 1860 Source Dave Johnson firstname.lastname@example.org B)Anna Vaughn d. May 30, 1832 Source Dave Johnson email@example.com C) The 1881 census Province of Ontario .. District No. 144 Monck County S.District E1, Township of Wainfleet showsDaniel Marlatt, age 26, Diannah,age 26 and son John, age 3. My grandfather, John Daniel Marlatt was born in this area in 1877/78. I had believed the John identified in the 1881 census was my grandfather.However, your revelation that this John Marlatt married Almedia Adelaide Horton came asa surprise. I havelimited information about my grandfather's life, so, it is possible that he was married prior to my grandmother Jessie Edna Dilts (whose father, John Dilts,is also a mystery), When they married in1914 he was 37 and grandmother was17.Can you shed some more light on Marlatt / Horton marriage?
