I am looking for information on the family of Milton Dutton. The 1880 Federal Census shows that on June 19th of that year, Milton was 49 years of age (making the year of his birth 1830-31); was a farmer residing in Cold Springs Township, Shelby Co. Ill., and was born in Ohio. He stated that his father was also born in Ohio; his mother in KY.
Milton's wife was Ruth A., who in 1880 was 54 years of age, a native of Indiana. Her parents were both born in KY.
At that time Milton and Ruth had only one child living with them, Henry W. (who appears to be my great-grandfather), age 19.
The 1870 Federal Census shows that Milton and family then resided in Pana Township of Christian Co., Ill. On that census is also listed a daughter Mary, age 10.
If anyone has information on any of the above family members, I would appreciate hearing about them, especially in regard to the parents of Milton and Ruth.
