Good morning Joyce

Here is a little bit of information about my Dalton's in Wysox.

Rod Dalton, Ogden Utah

From the History of the Dalton Family in Wysox, Bradford Co Pennsylvania,
By Rodney Dalton

The two Dalton's in the Deed below are the sons of John Dalton Sr. who settled in Bradford County after moving there from Luzerne County.

"Sometime around 1807 John Dalton was given a War grant of land in Wysox Township in upper Luzerne Co. Pa., later changed to Bradford Co. in 1812.
John and his growing family settled on a stream named The Little Wysox, above the Schultz place. He called his farm, "Dalton Hollow". The Little
Wysox creek drains into the Susquehauna River. The name Wysox is from the Indian word "Wysauking". The town was first called New Baltimore, then named
Strong and Hogaboon's before finally being named Wysox. The township of Wysox had and area of not more than fifteen square miles. The Wysox creek
flows through the town, receiving the principal affluent at Myersburg, which is the outlet of the lake on Pond Hill. Farther to the north is the Little
Wysox Creek"
