Alma Theodore Dayton (1846 - 1933) Profile

Alma Theodore Dayton

Son of Hirum and Sophia Lance Dayton.  At the time of the 1850 Iowa census (taken in September) the family was living in Pottawattamie County.  Alma is listed as Alma "Lance." The two versions of Alma's obituary incorrectly say the family immigrated in 1850 or 1852 but the father's name appears in the Salt Lake City Public Works record books on 2 January 1852, which was prior to that year's emigration season, so the family must have traveled to Utah in 1851.  Further research is needed to identify the company with which they traveled.

At the time of the 1856 Utah Territorial census the Dayton family was living in "St. One City," Utah.
