I can directly trace my family tree back to John H (S?) Dayton. All I know about him is that he was born somewhere in Vermont around 1805. He went on to marry a woman from Vermont named Harriet. They then moved to Essex (in Essex County), NY between 1833-1836.
Their children, born in Vermont: William (1827), Jane (1831), Mary (1833)
Their Children, born in Essex, NY: Eliza (1836), David H (1838), Polly (1841), Matilda? (1843), John H (1846)
PS - Any info on Harriet's family, if available, would be great too (even if it's as little as a surname)...
