Hi. Am researching the names of Mary Ellen Rebecca Bitner/Bittner and her daughter, Almeda Viola Bitner/Bittner. They both were married to Dayton brothers. Mary Ellen went by the name of Rebecca Dayton. She was married to John Franklin Dayton, abt. 1889/90. They had Ethel Mae & Bertha Elizabeth. Almeda was born before John and Rebecca married, and was from a different father. Almeda was born in Upper Straussburg, Pa. on 9-21-1884. She died in Windber, Pa. on 3-23-1937. She married Joseph Salemna Dayton on 10-9-1900 in Chambersburg, Pa. (Franklin Co.) They had: Florence Elizabeth, John Meredith, George William, Harry Raymond, Esther Leona, Charles Gamaliel, Arthur David, Mary Ellen, Robert, Martha (both born and died on the same day, but a year apart) and Joseph Salemna, Jr. This family was mostly from the Windber, Listie, Pa. area. Anyone with information on either of these women, please contact me, by e-mail. I will share what little info I have on them. Thanks!!
