    Notes 
    • 1830 Census, St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, pg. 22-24.
          He purchased a town lot in Liberty in the 1830's and enlisted  as a soldier in the Texas Revolution.  He also served as a sheriff in Liberty County in 1839.  He may have gotten into some financial trouble shortly thereafter as a newspaper advertisement ca. 1840 states that some of his property was to be sold on the courthouse steps for payment of a promissory note.
          1840 Texas Tax List (county not listed) http://daltondata.0pi.com/texas.html
          On October 29, 1849 Harris Co. District court authorized a summons to William K. Dalton to appear as a witness in a civil action.  The sheriff of Harris county delivered the summons, but the testimony of William Dalton is not extant (suit no 1861 H. L. Thompson, administrator of T.D. Yocum, decd, vs John Choate et. al.)
          He owned land in several Texas counties.  He was alive as late as 1852, when he placed an ad in an Austin newspaper stating that he had lost his headright certificate to his league of land in Liberty county.  (This procedure was done in those days when a land owner wanted to sell or acquire land before applying for a duplicate certificate.)
          Carolyn Whittington wrote:  "The facts about him are as elusive as those of Melina.  I have not been able to locate him in any Texas census although I think he was still residing in the State. He went on to acquire land in Ellis and Navarro Counties but whether he ever lived there I do not know."
