You may think me a pain in the neck and I will freely admit I am, but look how much genealogical matrial you put out on the net today. A good researcher should read it and evaluate it.
The reason I am not convinced that the John Ditto who was married to Margaret Hinkle is there are two John Dittos found in 1790 federal. Using tax records Larry Bolin who is a meticulous researcher has done a study comparing tax records and that census. He places one John Ditto in Tyrone Twp., which borders Cumberland County. John Deado eventually settled in Cumberland Co. He places rhe other John Ditto in Berwick Twp. which borders York Co. On the same page we find Joseph Ditto, who is still found on the Berwick Twp. tax records ten years later. Added to this Barbara Deeto's executor was from the same area. About the same time a John Dity/Detty/Ditty and his wife Magdelene had three daughters baptized at Emmanuel Church in Abbottstown, Berwick Twp: Susanna b. 17-Aug-1786; 06-Jan-1878 (this the date given in Adams County Church Records of the 18th Century Pg. 111); Catharine b.26-Mar-1790. These names and dates do not match those of John Deado's wife and children. Another reason I have doubts is that Hinkle family and the Dedie/Ditto families all attended the Germantown Reformed Church. They were likely to have known one another. I did not find Barbara and her children in that church.
