Interested in your research of the Layport (LaPorte) names. My 5th GGrandmother Nancy McCaslin married George Layport (LaPorte), and they had 11 (possibly 15) children. My connection begins with their daughter Nancy marrying my line's William Wilson in Deersville, Harrison Cty., Ohio. Their son James Wilson married Grace Auld, daughter of William and Margaret (Cauldwell) AULD. One of their sons was William Hamilton WILSON married to Emiline GRIFFIS; they had 8 children - 6 survived, including my ggrandmother Lydia Ethel who married Tom DENSON. They had 6 children, 4 survived including my Grandmother Hazel Evangeline DENSON who married Frank Edward SEABERG. They had 2 children, 1 was my Mother Juanita May SEABERG who married Lewis Ronald BARLING. They had 4 daughters; I am the eldest.
Are you aware of David RICHARDSON and his incredible work on the Layport (LaPorte) line? Would be pleased to hear from you.
