  • Notes 
    • Layton is listed as the child of Wm. Jr. and Elizabeth in Medlin's Quaker Records instead of the son of Mary. (C-265) He is listed 8th in his father's will. Layton, wife and family of six children were issued certificates of removal from Bush River and Cane Creek on 9/25/1802 to the Westland MM in Washington Co., PA. Even though their destination was Ohio, that Pennsyvania MM was the closest one to file their certificates with at the time. (C-1297) They came to Ohio from South Carolina by way of Tenn. and KY. They crossed the Ohio River at Cincinnati on a flat boat with the horses tied behind it. They leased land in Chester Twp., Clinton Co., Ohio to begin with and then moved to Miami Co., Ohio in 1809. (C-800) He and his family were supposedly the first Jay's to move to Ohio. His wife's family moved with them. Their land patent was signed by George Washington and was still in existance in 1951 in the possession of Cassius Milton Jay. (C-813) He supposedly married a White after his first wife's death. In his will dated 1812, he names William Jay (son?) and Benjamin Coppock his executors. (C-864, 1950) Some accounts say he died of drowning, but one Jay researcher, R. Harry Jay, believes that his will made in proximity to his death indicates otherwise. There is also an account that he died of "Milk disease." (C-1079)
