The Kanistanaux children found in the 1870, 1875, and 1880 census households (Leonatta, Carrie, Isaac Henry, and William) do not appear to be his children and may not be children of his wife either.
William is identified in a news-clipping as his grandson by marriage. The death records of Isaac Henry and Carrie provide no information about their parents yet surviving family members knew the two were raised in the Kanistanaux household. Lee-o-netto's death record provides no name for her mother and the name John Moulton as her father. The true relationship of these children to Layton is unknown at this time.
