Question Box – Dayton Lineage

DFH Volume 1 Issue 14

Last week’s quiz: Do you all know who your great-grampa Dayton is/was? 

Ralph Dayton1 was the first Dayton to set foot on American soil (in 1639…he emigrated from Ashford, Kent County, England).  His descendants down to Wilber Dayton Sr. were: Samuel Dayton2, Abraham Dayton3, Henry Dayton4, David Dayton, Sr.5, David Dayton, Jr.6, Henry Dayton7, Charles Dayton8, Wilber Dayton, Sr.9 .  How far down the line are you from Wilber, Sr.?  Congratulations if you know!  Otherwise, I’d be honored to help you learn!  After all, it’s not every day that someone can trace their roots to the New Haven colony in 1639. (it would probably make a good middle school or high school history project).
