Donna Dilts

After checking the Roseville HS graduate photos again, I did find another Dilts in the class of 1932. This makes a total of six. Donna is the daughter of John (1891-1956) & Hattie (1895-1977). She married Richard N. Ransbottom (1913-1996), who is buried in Rose Hill Cemetery.

Dilts Graduates of Roseville HS

I am now up through the M's in round two of the Roseville Cemetery project. I took a small break last week to start recording the names of the faculty and graduates from Roseville HS. These names and pictures are posted at the Roseville Historical Society. Last Sunday, during their Open House, I went down and photographed each picture. Although some of them were a little blurry, I was able to go through and get about 95% of the names recorded by class 1892-1970. FYI, starting in 1971 all Roseville high school aged students were sent to the Franklin Local School District to attend Philo HS, leaving 1970 as the last graduating class from RHS.

So far I have found five Dilts' who graduated from RHS:
Marguerite Dilts, Class of 1893 b. 1875 Daughter of James A. Dilts & Ida V. King
Eleanor Dilts, Class of 1934 Daughter of Charles A. Dilts & Nettie Iola Stine
Polly Dilts, Class of 1949 1931-2004 Daughter of John W. Dilts & Hattie Loretta Shields, married Robert L. Tracy, buried Rose Hill Cemetery
Max Dilts, Class of 1951 Son of John W. Dilts & Hattie Loretta Shields
Donna Dilts, Class of 1951 b. 1938 Daughter of Clive O Dilts & Bessie B. Pyle, married Ernest Milton Pride & Carl E. Wilson

There may be more, as I still need to check the pictures I have which were too blurry to read. I am headed back down to Roseville on Friday to check the work I have so far and get the names of the ones I could not read.

Almeda Ann Dilts

1860-1943, Almeda is another daughter of Thomas & Elizabeth, however in the record for Almeda shows Elizabeth Ann Gillespie as her mother. I still have no idea where the Elizabeth Taylor refernce came from in Parmelia's record. At any rate, Almeda marries Hall Koon 1856-1912 in 1878. They are both buried in Roseville cemetery along with sons William 1879-1905 & Newton 1881-1936 and daughter Mary b1899.

Parmelia Roxena "Rene" Dilts

Now up to the K's in round two of Roseville Cemetery. I ran across a Rene Koon 1861-1940, married Allen Koon 1860-1932. has her father listed as Thomas Diltz and mother as Elizabeth Taylor. I do have a Parmelia Dilts listed in my tree as born about 1860, daughter of Thomas Dilts and Elizabeth Gillespie. So my best guess is that this is her, but who is Elizabeth Taylor?
