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 9th great-grandfather.
Hello. My name is Steve Dayton. I’ve created this blog for anyone who has interest in the Dayton family in America and earlier ancestry in England. I descend from Ralph, Samuel, Abraham, Henry, David Senior, David Junior, Henry, Charles, Wilber and Paul.
PURPOSE FOR THE BLOG
There were two main purposes for creating this site:
1. To provide a means to communicate with those who share our interests in early Long Island or the Dayton family.
2. To make everyone aware that my brother Jim and I published our work, a compilation of records and interpretation with extensive documentation, entitled Our Long Island Ancestors, the First Six Generations of Daytons in America, 1639-1807. The paperback is available from major booksellers at $19.95 while the hardcover will continue to be offered at Jim’s reduced price on eBay.
