Vera

Thank you, missy for posting this. Daniel Denton? Well, there was one
Daniel Denton that might be Mina Elmina's (I love the name.)
husband........and I may have his middle initial off, because I am sure that
I found the family on a census record:

Descendants of Jonathan Denton

1 Jonathan Denton b: 1824 in Tennessee
.. +Nancy Jane ? b: 1832 in Tennessee
......... 2 Sarah Denton b: 1856 in Tennessee
......... 2 James Denton b: 1857 in Tennessee
......... 2 Daniel T. Denton b: 1858 in Tennessee
......... 2 William Denton b: 1859 in Tennessee
......... 2 John Denton b: 1863 in Arkansas
......... 2 Francis E. Denton b: October 1867 in Arkansas
............. +Harrison M. Stratton b: March 1844 in Arkansas m: August 22,
1899 in Baxter Co., Arkansas
......... 2 Jasper Denton b: 1869 in Arkansas
......... 2 Mary Denton b: 1869 in Arkansas
......... 2 ? Denton
......... 2 ? Denton

Note: Harrison Stratton was a sibling to my ggggrandfather's second wife;
Rachel Elizabeth Stratton (1842-1916). She married Elisha Smothers
(1800-1881), upon the death of his wife; Sarah........shortly before the
Civil War. And yes, there was a forty-two year age difference in the two.

But, back to Daniel Denton. Something tells me that you just unearthed a
marriages for Jonathan's son and I appreciate it.
