From the little I know of my family history, I was told that originally my line came to the United States with the surname Halton, but changed it to Haltom. I wonder why this was done.
As a child, my grandparents told me of a Halton castle in England and the idea that I could possibly come from a related line was intriguing. Fast forward into the internet age, and I have discovered two Halton castles, one in bare ruins http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halton_Castle and another that seems in livable condition http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halton_Castle..._Northumberland
I doubt any great great uncle Halton left me any haunted castle to inherit, but its fun to wish so.
Merry Christmas and Bright Blessings.
