James Madison Hayton and Elizabeth Tennessee Harris

James Madison Hayton was born May 1854 Pike Co., KY and died after 1930 Cabell Co., KY. He was the son of Moses Hayton and Sarah Fuller. He married 1874 Elizabeth Tennesse Harris, daughter of Squire Harris and Nancy Jane Bentley. She was born 1858 Beaver Creek, Floyd Co., KY and died 23 Sept 1939.

Their family can be found 1880 Butler District, Wayne Co., WV census; 1900 McComas District, Cabell Co., WV census; 1930 Sandy River, McDowell Co., WV census;

1930 McDowell Co., Census Big Creek, WV
shows them as taking in boarders. This is the first evidence that I have found that corroborates the story my grandmother told me of how her parents met. She told me that James and Elizabeth Hayton took in boarders and that George W Lilly was one of them. He and Nancy Jane ran away together to get married.
