ADAMS, BURRELL, LAYTON, LEIGHTON, MARKHAM, SAUNDERS, SORRELL -
ISO informtion on additional information on parents of Lewis Edward LEIGHTON, b:1845 as per 1860 census for Rockbridge Co. or 1846 as per 1870 census Botetourt Co. Other than the 1860 Rockbridge Co. census I have been unable to find any reference to John LEIGHTON b: abt 1811 Married Elizabeth SAUNDERS 17 Mar 1828 or Rebecca ADAMS 17 Oct 1828. 1860 Census only list wife as Eliza. Other children besides Lewis were William R. b: 1842 and John L. b: 1848. Lewis married Rachel Ann MARKHAM b: 1837 she died in 1932 and is buried in Covington, Va. Their Children were Otto Samuel b: 1873, Gertrude b: 1876, Alvin Rosco b: 1878 and my Grandfather John Ernest b: 1874. Any help will be appreciated. A lady had sent me a record from a Rockbridge Co. Death Register. There was a listing for the death of John LAYTON. d: 21 Mar 1864 at age 53. My John was born in 1811. The time and place is right!! His parents were listed as William and Nancy LAYTON. In the marriages I had there was a William LEIGHTON married Nancy SORRELL 19 Mar 1812 .. Another Fit!! Then in the marriage record of William and Nancy it gave Williams parents as James LAYTON. I also had a marriage of James LEIGHTON to Ann BURRELL 25 Oct. 1786.. This last find confirmed that there was a name change somewhere along the line. I kept drawing a blank looking for LEIGHTON in various county and state records. My gGrandfather John was LAYTON in the 1850 Census and John LEIGHTON in the 1860 Census. What I need is confirmation on the above. Dates and places fit fine but, I would like to have some sort of verification. Thanks, Charlie Leighton; Camarillo, CA (805) 987-0432

STANLEY, WILLIAMS -
Lewis B WILLIAMS is shown in the 1850 Botetourt Co VA census, with his wife Malinda W and 6 children. The oldest child is Mary B. WILLIAMS, which I would like to have more info on. Mary B. WILLIAMS married James Henry STANLEY in 1860. Would appreciate any info about this family. Thanks.
