If you were born in America with the name Dayton, there is a high probability that you descend from our common progenitor Ralph Dayton, my 8th great-grandfather.

My brother Jim and I descend from Ralph>Samuel>Abraham>Henry>David Senior>David Junior>Henry>Charles>Wilber (our grandfather).

Our compilation of records and interpretation entitled Our Long Island Ancestors, the First Six Generations of Daytons in America, 1639-1807, is available in both hardcover and softcover from major booksellers. Jim offers the hardcover at significant savings in his eBay store, where he also provides page previews. The book is not-for-profit, with contributions going to Long Island historical societies.

    I know you were exhaustive in your research and from what I hear, this is a very well written book. I am sure your work will inspire others to learn more about their own heritage. Good Job Dayton brothers!

      Thank you Robert. It’s nice to meet you. Do you know if the name “Robert” goes back very far in your line? If so, you might come from Robert, Ralph Dayton’s son. I’ve met others recently from Robert’s line who remained on the east end of Long Island.
