His marriage application in Kokomo, Howard co, IN 1910 gives his parents names as Charles A and Mary Reed Daulton. His later social security application gives his parents names as Charles Anderson Daulton and Mary May Meeks. Charles A Daulton appears on the Howard county IN census in 1920, as does Ray Daulton with wife Nealie and two twin children, Loren and Lorene. Nealie and Ray later divorced. Ray Daulton died in 1971 in Brownsburg, Hendricks co, IN. Any help appreciated. I would dearly love to find mariage info that substantiates Ray's mother's name, as well as any census info from IL.
