I found my David Layton, born about 1784/6, living in Anderson Co, KY. He married first, Letitia Cowgill and second Melinda Galloway. In the 1830 census, a male aged 80-89 years (born between 1741 and 1750) was living in the household of David Layton. I believe this would be Davids father. Since Letitias father was living in Anderson Co and listed on his own, I am sure it would not be Davids father-in-law and Ralph Cowgill was born about 1760. There might be a connection to Scott Co., KY but not positive. I had thought there was connection to the William Layton who died in Indiana, 1835 but the date of birth is too late. Family researchers have stated the his father was David but can make a solid connection and the dates do not match up. There was another William H Layton in Kentucky that might be related. David named his eldest son John M and he was born in Ky about 1817. I did not find a John Layton that fit a birth date of 1741-1750. Any one researching Layton in Kentucky?
