In the next few days, we’ll be placing our book, Our Long Island Ancestors, the First Six Generations of Daytons in America 1639 to 1807, online in a free format. We plan to make it available at archive.org.
Please use discretion when copying passages from the book. We have written the copyright usage parameters on page ii of the book. You can still purchase paper copies at Amazon.com. Our purpose in making it available in free PDF format is so Dayton researchers can gain easier access to its contents.
Hi Steve. I am descendant of Joel Dayton Sr, b 1776 Brookhaven, NY who moved to Rutland VT and whose son Joel Dayton Jr b 1807 Middletown/Rutland moved to Plessis NY. Joel Dayton Sr was buried in Rutland VT (findagrave 149023129), but his father David Dayton, b 1728 Brookhaven, seems to have moved to Little Eggharbour, Gloucester NJ. David m. Ann Francis in Monmouth NY June 5, 1760 David Dayton’s father was Henry Dayton Sr, b 1700 Brookhaven/Setauket, LI, NY, (who m. Abigal Norton b 1704). Henry Dayton Sr. d. 1762 Brookhaven/Setauket. I would love to know if gravesites have been found for David Dayton and Henry Dayton Sr, and their locations, if you know or could find out. Thanks from my gg grandmother Ann Dayton! (Joel Dayton Jr was Ann’s father). .
