Hello LAYTON Researchers,
I am researching my LAYTON Heritage, but as usual BRICK WALLS come along. My ggg grandfather seems not to have any siblings or parents and NO definate known beginning. What I have scraped together is this:
Daniel J. (possibly John or James) LAYTON born abt 1794 in NEW YORK.
Daniel LAYTON moved from New York to ILLINOIS by 1832.
Daniel LAYTON married Charlotte MAPLES in June 1832 in Clark Co., IL.
Daniel and Charlotte LAYTON had a son Lawson LAYTON in 1833 in Cape Girardeau County which changed to Stoddard County, MO in 1835.
Daniel and Charlotte are in the 1840 and 1850 Stoddard County, MO census records.
Daniel and Charlotte LAYTON had the following children:
1. Lawson LAYTON
2. Abram or Abraham LAYTON
3. Violetta LAYTON Lawrence Curry
4. Mary Ann LAYTON Link
5. James H. LAYTON
6. Emaline or Emily LAYTON Oxford Carroll
7. George LAYTON
8. John H. LAYTON
9. Marmaduke LAYTON
10. Arson or Orson B. LAYTON
11. Charlotte LAYTON
12. Nancy LAYTON
13. Susan A. LAYTON
Daniel and Charlotte LAYTON both died in 1859, one in early 1859 and the other in the latter part of 1859.
All children were born in Cape Girardeau County MIssouri till 1835 (Lawson and maybe Abraham) when Stoddard County was formed and Bloomfield, Missouri was named the county seat.
If anyone has any clues about any of these LAYTON family members, please contact me! My email is:email@example.com
Everyone, Have a GREAT Day!!!
