Mary Jane Goodpasture Layton was the daughter of John J. & Emily Long Goodpasture and a sister to Hanna Goodpasture Job. Mary Jane married married William Layton and died in Cloud, Kansas. John J. Goodpasture was the son of Abraham Jr. & Hannah Willard Goodpasture who migrated from Overton County, TN to Morgan County and settled east of Concord, IL in 1826.
William A. Layton, who is the great-grandfather of Dave M. Layton of Kansas was the son of William M. Layton and Elizabeth Goodpasture Layton - therefore I have a double connection to the Goodpasture family. My information shows that they came to Illinois from Kentucky.
