I am seeking any information in Monroe County that might help to establish an ancestral connection with my Jesse W(illiam) Dalton, b:@1815 Tenn, to any Dalton line there. Jesse was married to Nancy S(mith) Clarke, b:@1815 Tenn/Ky @1834 Tenn(?). Nancy was the daughter of William Clarke and Naomi (unknown). Her siblings were Naoma Clarke, Elvira Elizabeth Clarke and John Clarke. Jesse and Nancy's first child, William Clark Meredith Dalton, was born in 1835 in Nashville, Tennessee. Within the next 2-3 years the family removes to Jackson County, Mo and by 1840 Nancys mother and sisters are there also as shown in the 1840 Missouri census. Your help is very appreciated.
