I wonder if your Robert Stayton would in any way be related to Nehemiah Stayton (1808-1877), also of Kent County. He married Susan Chipman (1810-1876), a sister of my great-great-great-great-grandfather Stephen Chipman, on June 8, 1833 in Kent County. They had four children that I know of: Charles Emerson (1835-1903), David C. (1838-approx. 1889), Mary (b. 1841), and Martha (b. 1849). Nehemiah and his wife are buried at the Methodist Cemetery in Dover, and Charles and his wife, Susan Moffett Stayton, are buried at the Roby Methodist Church Cemetery in Leipsic. A genealogist in Kent County just sent me an obit from 1915 for Susan, but all it says regarding survivors is "3 daughters and 3 sons, including David J. Stayton of Richardson Park." Would love to find anybody who has further info on the descendants of this family, or may even be related to them. Sadly, there isn't a Stayton family forum on this website -- maybe it's time for one.
