States: Virginia: Smyth
I am searching for the father and mother of Columbus Franklin Paxton (or CF Paxton - 1900 Federal Census) and mistakenly listed as Poxton in the 1910 Federal Census. Columbus was married to Margaret (or Maggie) Susan Zirkle on the 26 February 1876 in Raleigh Co, WV. According to WV records, Columbus was from Smyth Co, VA and Maggie was from Greenbrier Co, WV at the time of their marriage. From WV, the couple moved to Kentucky and then on to Georgetown, Vermilion Co, Illinois. They are buried in the Georgetown Cemetery along with many of their children. Columbus Franklin Paxton is my great grandfather. I see in the records that Arthur Webster Paxton (1820-1896)of Smyth County, VA had a son named Franklin Columbus Paxton, but FC Paxton appears to be about 5 years younger than CF. Any leads are appreciated.
