"Please post your best record for the family of our Samuel Saxon b. 1734 in
Va. who died in 1816, Laurens SC."
My wife descends from Samuel, Jr.'s brother Charles SAXON, who died in
Laurens Co., SC in 1816. I've been collecting SAXON data for some thirty
years, and much of what I have is not well documented. I have no record of
Charles SAXON's brother Samuel (Jr.) and his wife Elizabeth (DAVIS) SAXON
having a son named Joshua, nor do I have any firm dates of birth or death
Samuel SAXON, Jr. Here's what I have on this family (all open to discussion

Tallapoosa Co., AL Orphans Court records show that on 27 Jan 1851, Lucinda
SAXON, widow of James SAXON who died intestate, petitioned the court for
dower, stating that James owned the E of SE of Sec 17, T21, R22. William
SAXON of Chambers Co. is mentioned as James's administrator (in another
the adm. of James's estate is named as Henry SAXON). James's heirs, besides
petitioner, are listed as John W. SAXON, James SAXON, and another infant,
name not known, all minors under 14.
Is this the same James SAXON?

Are you sure you didn't mean that you are descended from Charles SAXON (d.
1816 Laurens Co., SC), rather than Samuel?

> Hello Fellow Saxon family researchers,
> Can someone or several of you, please post your best record for the family
of our Samuel Saxon b. 1734 in Va. who died in 1816, Laurens Sc.? Just him,
the wife, kids with spouses. I have much SAXON family information. It
varies from one listing to another as to who are his children, and what his
wife's name was. I descend from son, Joshua Saxon b. about 1760 who was in
Laurens District records, then left and went to Kentucky in 1800 and then in
1811 went to Claiborne Co., MS. and died there in 1817 leaving a will. Any
listing is appreciated. Thanks all. Leslie Pierce Royce
