From "John Layton Family" genealogy manuscript by Bessie Elton, 1972:
John Layton was the founder of the Layton families in Washington County Georgia. He was born in the Mingo Church community of Sampson County, North Carolina. He and his wife Clarissa Hartley, migrated to Washington County, Georgia in 1817 and settled on a 200 acre farm bounded by Williamson Swamp [5-10 miles east of present day Sandersville] and B. Hartley land [assume this is Burrell Hartley Sr., re 1820 census showing them next to each other]. John became a member of the Ohoopee Baptist Church, on November 15, 1824. In 1825, he, his wife, and two oldest daughters, Phoebe and Fere, became members of Sisters Baptist Church and were active leaders from 1825-1840 [there is a present day church of that name east of Sandersville] .
