Hi all my name is Ricky D Layton II. I am a descendant of James Hester "Buddy" Layton that was born in Simpson County, MS in 1906 to William Joseph "Bill" Layton and Sara Ann Elizabeth Jones Layton. I have knowledge that My great grandfather moved to Oak Grove, La area with his bride of Lilla Mae Jordan Layton and had 7 kids. I am trying to trace my lines back and keep getting stuck in Mendenhall, MS or Simpson County, MS. But i have names that place the bloodlines all the way back to 1769. Please Email me at Jeepman50@hotmail.com
On a side note there is a yearly Layton Reunion that we do in Northern Louisiana.
