MICHAEL MIXON

2389 MICHAEL MIXON, WILLIAM MIXSON (56 ), JOHN MIXON II (2), JOHN MIXON I (1)

Michael Mixon, s. of William and Elizabeth Mixon, was b. in Virginia (either Surrey or Prince George County), April 15, 1727. Craven County, N.C. Court Minutes, Sept., 1739, states that Michael Mixon, now about 12 years old, is bound out to John Slocombe to "learn him the art and mystery of a cord wainer," etc. until 21 years old.

From "Colonial Records of North Carolina," Vol. 4, p. 894:

At a council held at Newbern, 5th Oct., 1748, several persons asked for warrants for land, one being Michael Mixon, asked for 100 acres in New Hanover, County. On Dec. 23, 1754, two grants were issued to Michael Mixon in Duplin County, N.C., 100 acres, Grant #23, Book 13, p. 66. (Sold by Michael Mixson, 1759). Another grant for 200 acres, same date, Grant #13, Book 13, p. 68. (Sold by Michael Mixson, Sept. 8, 1760).

From "South Carolina Records", REGISTER BOOK FOR THE PARISH PRINCE FREDERICK WINYAW, p. 56:

Michael Mixon m. Sarah Brittain, Nov. 3, 1737. Ibid, p. 32:

William Mixon, s. of Michael and Catherine Mixon - b. March 8, 1753, baptized May 29, 1753.

(This could be two different Michael Mixons, or the same Michael with wife "Sara Catherine" or Sara, wife No. 1, who died, and Catherine, wife No. 2.

It must be noted, however, that the Michael Mixon b. in Va. 1727 was reared in an Anglican Church, and he had a tie with that church. Too, Moses and Francis Brittain, brothers to Sara Brittain were members of the Anglican Church, but later withdrew from same and became Presbyterians. Michael Mixon and his family might have done likewise. Surely there were children other than William Mixon - b. 1753. (2390).

From "Ramsays History of South Carolina", Vol. II, p. 592:

Statistical Account of Georgetown, by Dr. Levy Myers, Dr. Blythe, and Samuel Smith. One of the writers mentions the longevity in the County between Little Peedee River and Catfish Creek, about 60 miles north of Georgetown. "Six very old men have died since the turn of the century; James Ford died in 1804, age about 100. James Munnulyn, Moses Martin, Buckingham Keen, Michael Mixon and William Watson, all being upwards of 80 years old."

Child of Michael and Sarah Brittain:

*2392 John D. Mixon – b. Oct 27, 1750, d. bef. 1806

m. (2) Catherine. Children:

*2390 W. Francis Mixon

*I27624 Redden Mixon - b. 1770, Darlington Co, SC, d. 1809, m. Amelia

2390 W. FRANCIS MIXON, MICHAEL MIXON (2389), WILLIAM MIXSON (56), JOHN MIXON II (2), JOHN MIXON I (1)

W. Francis Mixon, probably William Francis Mixon, and probably the William Mixon b. 1753, baptized same year, and son of Michael and Catherine Mixon, Prince Frederick Winyaw Parish, S.C. He lived on the state line between North Carolina and South Carolina, as well as on the county line between Roberson and

Richmond County, listed twice in the 1790 census of N.C., same information, and in the 1800 and 1810 census of South Carolina; had two sons:

*2391 Charles Mixon

9452 Son - under age 10 in 1800 census

He was a Revolutionary Soldier, two vouchers issued to him, as follows:

July 30, 1784, to Messrs. Michael and Francis Mixon, for 2 pounds, 16 shillings for four sheep for Continental use in 1782. (Book "H", p. 195)

July 30, 1784, to Mr. Francis Mixon for 13 pounds, 14 shillings, 3 pence sterling for 32 days duty as Captain in the militia in 1782. (Book "H", p. 194).

Listed in the 1800 census with three slaves under date of May 6, 1803, W. Francis Mixon and his son, Charles Mixon, sold three slaves, "Jane, George and Steve" consideration seven hundred dollars, to James Coward. (Deed Records, Marlboro County).

Listed in the Marlboro District in the 1810 census, no Mixons are shown after that in that district or county. Capt. Mixon could have died in that area before 1820, or could have moved elsewhere.

I27624 REDDEN MIXON, MICHAEL MIXON (2389), WILLIAM MIXSON (56), JOHN MIXON II (2), JOHN MIXON I (1)

Although not confirmed, it is believed that Redden Mixon was the son of Michael Mixon and Catherine.  The time and place indicates this may be the case but there is no confirmed evidence.  Other possible parents of Redden Mixon could be Jesse Mixon (LM-702) which a posting on Find a Grave says “Find a grave says Son of Jesse Mixon & Catherine and husband to Amelia and they had three know daughter's : Mary, Elizabeth and Amelia”. Until further evidence is found I will place him as the son of Michel Mixon.  The Mixsonian, Larry Mixson
