I dont have alot of info but according to what I have been told my Grandfather (Carl Mayton) was an orphan by the age of either 2 or 3. I was told that his father died from phnumonia that he cuaght while working a logger in the winter (I have no way to validate this information) and I simply dont remember how his mother died (perhaps birth complications). I do know that he (Carl Morgan Mayton) had other siblings though I dont have any info on them. Also, I know that he was adopted and raised as a farm hand. Carl left behind a wife (Ruby Gouge Mayton) and 12 children when he died of a heart-attack in 1973.Most of his children still live in Morgan County, and all of them still live in TN. His 23 grandchildren all live in Tn (except one in the military) and 21 great-grandchildren. I am also told that we have family in Ohio and that some ofCarls sibblings, famlily live in Roane County, TN and Anderson County, Tn.
I would appreciate any information linking Carl to the family which you mentioned and any information on our surname history, the fist Mayton to immigrate, our Coat of Arms, etc.
