4 GEORGE MIXON, JOHN MIXON III (3), JOHN MIXON II (2), JOHN MIXON I (1)

George Mixon, s. of John and Prudence Mixon, was b. in Virginia ca. 1702, d. in Beaufort County, N.C, 1779. He received a land grant of 200 acres located on Alligator River, Pasquotank Precinct, at the same time his father obtained his grants in 1716. (File 359, Book 8, p. 126, Land Grants of North Carolina).

No records of sale have been found to these lands belonging to him or to his father. On Sept. 9, 1729, he buys from David Perking, 180 acres located on northeast side of Matchapungo River, Hyde County. The deed was witnessed by Nathaniel Eborn and Thomas Windley. Presumably he had married by this time, or by 1730.

He might have married twice, but the only record found is that of Elizabeth.

On October 20, 1732, he witnessed the will of Henry Eborn. (Grimes, Abstract of North Carolina Wills).

On November 15, 1736, George Mixson “Heir at Law to John Mixon? sells to Joseph Roads 135 acres of land located on the northeast side of White Oak River, Careret County. (Deed Book “D?, p. 176, Deed of Records of Carteret County). Note: Jos. Roads and Wife Elizabeth sold these lands, Aug. 24 1761.

On Sept. 12, 1738, George Mixon buys 600 acres of land (originally granted to Edward Mosely) located east of Bath Creek and on north side of Pamlico River (consideration on 212 pounds, 12 shillings), from John and Keiza Struchberry (the 1723 tax list of Beaufort County has it listed as “Touchberry?). This deed was witnessed by Simon A. Corson, William Barrow and Roger Jones. (Book 2, p. 286, Beaufort County Deed Records). The Colonial Records of North Carolina, Vol. 23, p. 222, names George Nixson and others as Commissioners of Roads for Hyde Co., George Nixson given that part from Price's Creek to Bath Town. Since George MIXSON lived in this area at the time, it must have been Mixson instead of Nixson.

On Sept. 5, 1755, Henry Gibbs and George Mixon sign as sureties on 1000 pound bond on behalf of Thomas Barrow who had been appointed Deputy Receiver on His Majesty's rents for Hyde County. (Colonial Records of North Carolina, Vol. V., pp. 623-4).

The Freeholders of Hyde County met on first Tuesday in March, 1755, to choose a representative in the room of Col. Samuel Sanders, deceased. George Mixson cast his vote no. 17 for Thomas Smith, who was elected.

On Sept. 4, 1759, George Mixon and his wife, Elizabeth Mixson (note each spelled his name), made a deed to Henry Bailey for 300 acres of his plantation located on north side of Pamlico River, and east of Bath Creek. (Book 2, p. 470, Beaufort County Deeds).

On June 12, 1763, George Mixon buys from Jesse Echols and wife, 100 acres of land located on south side of Pamlico River, west side of Goose Creek.

On October 26, 1767, George Mixon is granted 300 acres of land located on south side of Pamlico River (Grant No. 70, Book 23, p. 93).
