 THE MIXON-MIXSON FAMILY

287 JESSE MIXON, ZEDEKIAH MIXON (10), GEORGE MIXON (4), JOHN MIXON III (3), JOHN MIXON II (2), JOHN MIXON I (1)

Jesse Mixon, son of Zedekiah and Mary Mixon, was b. in Beaufort County, NC, about 1797, d. in June, 1837, m. Cecilia ca. 1828.

In one of his letters he had written to his brother, Elijah Mixon, at Oxford, Go. (Jan. 27, 1836), he said he then had five in the family - probably meaning he had three children. Later information indicates he had lost all but one of his children. Mr. Mixon was appointed a justice for Beaufort County in 1827, which place he held until his death. Court records show he served on the jury for a number of times, and was administrator of one or more estates. He has not been found in any census of Beaufort County.

Two John Mixons are shown in the 1830 census of Beaufort, one is John, the son of James, the other is John, the son of John and Mary Mixon. John, the son of James and Polly., it appears, had married about 1816 and had two small children in the 1820-census.
