Seeking information on the family of Hiram and Polly Ditto. Hiram Ditto was b abt 1826 TN and may have been originally from Haywood Co TN. He married Polly Jane Layton probably in Ballard Co KY or Carlisle Co KY. Polly was born abt 1842 TN but the family shortly afterwards moved to present day Carlisle Co KY. Polly died shortly after the birth of her last daughter and the 1880 census. Hiram and Polly had 4 daughters - Martha J b abt 1859 Columbus, Hickman, KY; Sarah Elizabeth b abt 1861 Hickman Co KY; Julie b Hickman Co KY; and Mary Ellen b Sep 1868 Haywood Co TN.
I suspect that Hiram knew John Washington Henderson who was from Haywood Co TN. John married Polly's sister Margaret. The two families left Hickman Co KY and moved to Haywood Co TN where they lived for a few years. Shortly after the 1870 census, the Henderson's returned to Hickman Co KY. I cannot find Polly in the 1880 census, but Julie and Mary Ellen are living in KY with relatives. I suspect that Polly died and the girls went to live with the Henderson's and then lived with other relatives who had fewer family members in their household.
Would love to correspond with any of the Ditto descendants as well as learn what happened to the various members of the Ditto family.
