Orphan Court Docket of York County, Pennsylvania, a Barbara Deeto died in 1772, leaving children John, Jacob, Francis, Michael, Anthony, Mary and Catherine.
From the History of the Dittos:
"We received some information from Nelson Nuttall which shows that Jacob was mentioned as one of the heirs of Barbara Deeto, deceased (Orphan Court Docket, Book C, page 67, dated 29 May 1772, York County, Pennsylvania).The list of heirs in the account of the Administrator shows the following:John (oldest son), Francis, Jacob, Joseph, Peter, Anthony, Cathrine, and Mary.Thus, it appears that Jacob was probably born in York County, Pennsylvania, which is one of the counties bordering just north of the Maryland Line.
Further information shows:Peter, born 1751; William, born 1753; Francis, born 25, September 1758,....John, b. 25 September 1758 (twin of Francis, married Margaret Hinkle; Jacob, born 1760, married Catherine Finck; Joseph, born 1762 (in Ireland?); Anthony, born 1766; Michael; and Zebulon.Some of this information is contradictory.If Peter was born in 1751, how could John born 1758 be the oldewst?Peter was mentioned in 1772 in the list of heirs; therefore, he had not died.Also, how could Joseph have been born in Ireland?"
