These Dilts and Lefler families are driving me nuts! Here is what I have deducted based on census and marriage records. Daniel Dilts (b~1790) married Mary ?. They had a daughter named Laura (b~1815) who married John White. They are all listed together in the 1850 Hunterdon Co. census. I believe Daniel and Mary Dilts also had a son Peter (b 1813). He's the one I'm interested in. Margaret Dilts (b.1792) married George A. Laughler on Oct. 5, 1822. I think she may have been the sister of Daniel Dilts. Margaret and George Lefler had two children that I know of: Sara (b~1823) and George W. (b. ~1833). Sara Lefler did not marry. George W. married Rebecca Johnson and had children Laura, Lillie and George E.

My Peter Dilts married Hannah Leverton in 1841. They had three children: John V. (b~1843), Sarah Elizabeth (b 1846) and Hannah M. (b. 1848). Hannah Leverton Dilts died in 1848 and sometime later Peter married Sarah Johnson (the sister of Rebecca Johnson, wife of George W. Lefler). They had several children. I'm almost sure that the Hannah Dilts you found living with the Leflers is the daughter of Peter Dilts and Hannah Leverton. I have found Peter Dilts and his family in the 1860 census but Hannah wasn't living with them. Does this agree with anything you have found?
