Elvira E. Henderson was born in Georgia. She was the second wife of Josiah Ditto.

Josiah Ditto was born in Alabama on Oct. 10, 1832. He was the son of William Ditto (b. Dec. 13, 1806 in KY), the grandson of Josiah Ditto (1780-1823), and a first cousin to the John Ditto who is buried at Pin Oak Cemetery.

The first wife of Josiah Ditto (the younger) was Sarah Ann Tate, who he married on Dec. 20, 1855 in Marshall County, Alabama. Josiah and Sarah Ann had three children, all born in Alabama: (1) Lucy Jane "Jennie" Ditto (b. Nov. 29, 1858); (2) William "Billy" Ditto (b. Jan. 2, 1859, d. Sept. 2, 1866 in Alabama); and, (3) Montgomery Ditto. Sarah Ann died around 1863, while Josiah was serving in the Confederate Army.

Josiah Ditto married Elvira E. Henderson around 1865. They had three children, all born in Alabama: (1) Walter Lee Ditto (b. April 1866); (2) Nancy Helen Ditto (b. Nov. 10, 1869, married William Spinks Kornegay); and, (3) Annie P. Ditto (b. Dec. 5, 1870).

Josiah and Elvira moved to Milam County, Texas around 1874. Sometime after Elvira died, Josiah bought a ranch in Concho County, Texas, near Paint Rock, where he spent the rest of his life.

Much of the Ditto family information was furnished by Robert Hood Ditto.
