Hi, I have the Elsberry name for Clarsy also, this came from Fred. What I am looking into is the following
Thomas Gaston Layton Sr or I married Sallie?
His parents Martha Anderson and Stephen layton
Martha Anderson's parents - Mary Gaston and John Anderson
Thomas G. Layton Sr was my GGGGGrandfather.
my line goes Thomas G Layton I, II, III, then Benjamin Reese, then Perry Thomas, then Otis Franklin, then me Jeannette Dean, called Dena. Does this follow anything you are looking into???? I have tried the Elsberry line and haven't gotten anywhere. Fred layton also thought her last name was Bush>
