Layton Family Genealogy Forum
James Layton seems to have been in SC At least by 1811 when his first child was born. His children consistently tell census takers that they were born in SC.
The interesting thing is that in 1880 his eldest son, Willis Layton, tells the census taker that his father was born in VA while three other children (CC Layton, Nancy Layton Fowler and Frances Layton) say hs was born in SC. Can we assume that the eldest heard more family stories and is more likely to be correct - or do we weigh the evidence by the number of children who thought he had been born in SC?
Does anyone have knowledge of a VA Layton family that migrated to SC?
