Dear Paula Simms Hi I have records stating that he was born 1787 and died in 1847. Did you ever contact Mary Iszley yet? I know she has tons of info on the Ditton Family that's where I did get a lot of good info from. Mary's address is 9228 Spear Pl S Seattle Washington 98118-5328. She just got over an eye operation 2or3 weeks ago. Keep in touch and give me anymore info that you can on the Ditton from earlier times if you would. I am very eager to know more about our family. My fathers Mother Anna Winks Ditton burned our family bible after she divorced grandpa and it went back to the 1300's I will close for now and hope to hear from you real soon Sincerely yours Robert C Ditton Sr.
