Hi Pat,
I am the great grandson of John W. Paxton Sr. My grandfather was Peter Paxton. Peter was the last born child of John and Elmira Paxton. In his last years, John lived with my great uncle, Charles P. and Matte Paxton in Dawson, New Mexico. Before that, he lived in Pettigrew, Arkansas. I am assuming that he came out west after his wife passed.
You will find John listed in the 1910 census for Colfax County, New Mexico. I have found some Missouri birth records that list Elmira's maiden name as Saterfield, not Sutterfield.
I also have a few photographs (packed away somewhere) of the family during their Arkansas years. I would like to keep in touch if you find out any more about this line of Paxtons.
