In Reply to: Levi Laxton by Dan Laxton of 403

Dan,my name is Brenda Laxton Terrell and I live in Caldwell County, North Carolina where Levi Lavender Laxton and wife Nancy Tilly Laxton lived. My great-grandfather is Allen Laxton who married Mary Powell (of Caldwell County, Lenoir, N.C.). My grandfather is William Lavender Laxton also of Caldwell County, N.C.and wife Jane Suzanne Bolick of Alexander County, N.C. My Father is Fred Laxton, Sr and my mother is Mary Estell Fox.

Thomas Laxton borned about 1730??? - 1749??????? two different dates I have found in reviewing other's research.
married: Jane Wilson? Grayson?
This is where the researchers of Caldwell County and the surrounding counties get lost???? Our information indicates he is buried in Holman Ford, N.C. Holman Ford is located in our neighboring county of Wilkes County. As soon as possible, I plan to visit the Wilkes County Library and research their cemetery records. I have been able to find info in the census of Wilkes County indicating he did actually live there. In the posting of William N Laxton, I find a followup by RE: Elizabeth Ann Laxton by Dianna Walker. This info leads me to believe this is actually the daughter of Thomas Laxton of Holman Ford, N.C.
