I forgot to say that Soxville was named for George Sox who had a tavern/hotel here. It is interesting that he used the "o" in the spelling of his name when his father, brother and children all used an "a". To respond directly to your question, Soxville, centered on that hotel, was maybe a quarter of a mile south of Blakeslee on PA 115, the old Wilkes-Barre-Easton turnpike (toll road). The Sax children had homes north and south of that point according to the 1860 map of the township.
