Rob: I am descendant, too, of Jacob (b 1778), Tavner (b 1805), and James (b 1847). I assume the James you refer to is James Monroe LAYMON, my g-grandfather. I show that James Monroe LAYMON had 4 children: Tavner (1873), Ottice (1874), Estus (1876), and William Charles (1877). But, I don’t show a son Charles Pulse LAYMON. However, I show that James Monroe LAYMON had a sister Florence E LAYMON (b 1850) who married a Charles N PULSE in 1870. (I am grandson of Ottice S LAYMON.)
I would be interested in anything you have on the LAYMON line. Thanks.
