Mary "Polly" Ann Johnson Dalton

  • Birth 4 Feb 1831
  • Death 15 Jun 1906
  • Burial Blackland, Rockwall County, Texas, USA
  • Memorial ID 41625482

This memorial is in honor of Polly Ann Johnson Dalton, the widow of Isaac Dalton (b. 1820, d. 1859 ???), who set off in search of fortune during the gold rush.

Apparently, not only did Isaac find fortune, but he also appears to have met an untimely death, as he was never heard from again after his last letter telling his young wife, Polly, he'd struck it rich. (Sandy Wainwright wrote a compelling account of Polly and Isaac in her book on the Cantrell family.)

Polly brought up their two sons alone:

William Harvey Dalton (1846-1908)

Benjamin Franklin Dalton (1848-1936)

Polly Ann's parents were Benjamin James Johnson and Mahalia Denton.
