If anyone can assist in finding the name of the father of James L. Dalton who was born in 1872 according to his tombstone and died in 1929, also from his tombstone.
He is interred in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.
He can be found in the 1920 and 1910 U. S. Censuses for Virginia in Pittsylvania County. The name for his wife is given in one Census as "Mattie L. Dalton" and in the other as "Mattie Z. Dalton". I have found in some on-line sources that he married on December 19, 1900, Mattie Switzlett or Switzerlett.
I cannot find this man in the 1900 Census. Nor can I find him in a household in the 1880 Census. He gives his birthplace as "Virginia" in both the 1910 and 1920 Censuses; however I find no 1880 Virginia Census for him.
If anyone can identify his father, it would be greatly appreciated.
