Here is what I found in the Abel Dixon packet:

This information comes from the SKINNER FILES, located in the Hartsville Genealogical Research Library. Shared with Suzy Dixon Bennett by Donna Walker who deserves the credit for this amazing research. (I should mention that I have more informatin on the Mc Lendon family in another packet sent to me by another distant cousin from Baton Rouge, LA.)

REGARDING DENNIS MC LENDON:

SUMTER COUNTY, SC. DEED 3; DATED: JULY 31, 1817
RECORDED VOLUME "E", PG. # 161

ABEL DIXON, ON SPRING BRANCH, BEING TWO HUNDRED ACRES CONVEYED BY WILLIE FORT BY DEED BEARING DATE DECEMBER 29TH, 1804. IT BEING PART OF THREE HUNDRED ACRES ORGINALLY GRANTED TO DENNIS MC LENDON ON SEPTEMBER 12TH, 1772.

AND HATH SUCH SHAPES, FORM AND MARKS AS WILL OR MAY APPEAR BY THE PLAT ANNEXED TO THE ORIGINAL GRANT.

By the way, ABEL DIXON is married to TABITHA MCLENDON.

ALSO,

ABEL DIXON, ALSO TEN ACRES, MORE O RLESS, GRANTED TO SAID MC LENDON BY ANOTHER GRAND AND CONVEYED TO THOMAS WOODARD SENIOR AS WILL APPEAR BY THE ORIGINAL DEED.

S.C.D.A. COLA, SC, SUMTER CO., S.C. RECORDED DEEDS VOLUME E., PG. 161

SIGNED BY ABEL DIXON. WITNESSED BY FELIX ELLIS, JOEL STOKES, JOHN ROBERTSON, JR. PROVED BY FELIX ELLIS BEFORE EDWARD BARRETT ON JULY 31, 1817.

DOWERY BY "TABITHA DIXON" WIFE OF THE WITHIN NAMED ABEL DIXON.

I also have maps of land where Abel Dixon and my (5th great grandfather - Draper Dixon)lands were laid out included with this packet of papers. I think it would probably be more helpful to you if I just made copies for you. It would probably be a lot easier for you to follow.

REGARDING JAMES MC LENDON:

In my files, I have a JAMES MC LENDON or Mc Clendon who was born on December 8, 1836 and died on July 28, 1912. He married Mary Eveline Wainwright on February 15, 1866. She is the daughter of Seaborn Bickham Wainwright and Martha Ann Mixon. Mary Eveline Wainwright, was born on September 14, 1843.
