Who claims Aaron Paxson b.1820 GC, OH?

In Reply to: John, Aaron Paxson, OH & PA by Andrea Stacy of 267

Who claims Aaron Paxson b. 17 Mar 1820 GC Ohio? Have you found him on the 1850 census? Lots of questions, anyone have answers? Vern.

see below, except from Green County, Ohio Births Prior to 1869 by Arthur R. Kllner, Hertage Books, Inc. which shows Anna M. Paxton b. 10 Apr 1844 Miami twp. and the 1850 Census of Green Co. shows her parents as Aaron and Elis. Paxton.
Also note that Anna's parent Aaron was born about 1820, age 30 on the census. The Kllner books lists Aaron Paxson b. 17 Mar 1820 Green County (GDR). What's GDR?
Are these the same Aaron with Paxson changed to Paxton? Is this Aaron Paxson the father of Anna?

(excerpt from book on Green Co. Ohio from Diana)
Aaron b. 17 Mar 1820 GC (GDR)
John b. prior 1869 (date book was written) Beavercreek TP, GC, s Aaron & Susanna (Wall) Paxson (BH)
Julia Augusta b. ca 1854 GC (RB11)
William Alpha/Alpheus b. 6 Jul 1850 Beavercreek TP, GC, s John & Louisa (LeValley) Paxson (BH-OA-OB-SCS)
(Why didn't William show up on census below since it was taken in Sept of 1850?) (Here the name is clearly changed from Paxson to Paxton.)
Alwilda Jane b ca 1851 GC (OB)
Anna M. b. 10 Apr 1844 Miami TP, GC (OB)

This book shows John Paxson b. bef 1869 parents as Aaron & Susanna (Wall) Paxson (BH). What's BH?

So is John Paxson b. bef 1869 the same as John Paxton b. 1830 on 1850 Green Co. Census? That's quite a stretch between birth dates. But if so, that would make Aaron (&Hannah) on census, good candidates for Aaron & Susanna (Wall) Paxson (BH) shown in Kllner book.

Aaron (&Elis) b. 1820, Isaac (&Margaret) b. 1821, and John (&Louisa) b. 1830, look like they could be brothers which would make their parents the Aaron (&Hannah) Paxton b. 1797 PA

Info I sent to "Dianna" <> who is related to Anna Paxton.

where GR is Greene County, the following two letters are the township.

Well I see Ann b. abt 1845 with parents Aaron Paxton and Elizabeth.
Aaron's brothers are Isaac and John Paxton.
Aaron's parents are Aaron Paxton b. abt 1797 PA and Hannah b. 1797 PA (I probably meant VA here).
Aaron's grandmother is Cynthia (married Paxton) b. abt 1774 PA
Ann married a neighbor boy David Loe whose parents were John Loe and Asenatty (Asnetha Searls).
