Find early Geton/Jeton on Staten Island (Richmond County) NY, 1690's early 1700's. To New Castle Co.Delaware. abt 1720's (Lewis Jetton/Jeton/Geton, Sr. and sons Lewis and Peter. I believe family originated in France.
A Judith Geton Royer also came to SC about 1786. She married Noah Royer in England after fleeing France with her mother and brother. They then came to SC., mother dying on voyage, brother and husband shortly after arriving in country. She married 2nd Manigault. Believe she may have been somehow connected to the Lewis Geton/Jeton who appears on Staten Island.
I believe that John Jetton (d. 1789 NC) is descended from Lewis Jeton/Jetton/Geton of Delaware and Staten Island.
