3400 MICHAEL MIXSON, WILLIAM MIXSON (5), JOHN MIXON III (3), JOHN MIXON II (2), JOHN MIXON I (1)

 

Michael Mixson, planter, Revolutionary soldier, listed in Beaufort District of SC in the 1790 census, received a land grant for 106 acres in 1798 located on Whippy Swamp, Salkahatchee River. The 1790 census lists him, 1 male 45 and over, 1 male 26-45, 1 female 10-16, and 1 female 45 and over. As Abraham Mixson - b. 1774, s. of Michael, could have just married, the younger female could have been his wife; otherwise she would have been the dau. of Michael. Michael either died or moved elsewhere soon after, as he is not shown in later censuses.

Apparently two different Michael Mixsons (besides Micha Mixon and Michael Mixon, father of Capt. Francis Mixon) applied for pay for services rendered during the Revolution. One Michael Mixson was s. of William Mixson (see #5) of Kershaw County who made a will dated Jan. 1, 1778. While Michael Mixson of Beaufort could have been that son, however without more definite information now known, no effort will be made to place this Michael Mixson definitely at this time.

Census:

1780 Cheraws District, SC, U.S. Census Reconstructed Records, 1660-1820, Michael Mixon, He is on the Petit Jury List for the "District of Cheraw" [name found on reverse side of page 7].

1790 Heads of Families, At the First Census of the United States Taken in the Year 1790, Washington Gov. Print office, 1908, p11 lists Mixson, Michael

Judge Folks Huxford in his "Pioneers of Wiregrass Georgia" names two of the sons of Michael Mixson (he could have had other children), the sons are listed below:

*3401 Abraham Mixson - b. 1774, d. 1850

*3402 James Mixon - b. 1782, d. 1860

*4082 Martin Mixon – b. 1790, d. 1858 (believed to be son of this Michael)

3401 ABRAHAM MIXSON, MICHAEL MIXSON (3400)

Abraham Mixson, (in deed records of Barnwell County, SC, he is probably the Abraham referred to as "Abraham, Jr.", or "Abraham, the younger", s. of Michael Mixson and wife, was b. in SC, 1774, d. in Jackson County, Miss., after 1850.

One Abraham Mixson had land grant for 44 acres in Beaufort District, SC, Dec. 2, 1816. However, in 1810, this Abraham Mixon was in Tattnall County, GA, as he was shown as a juror that year. Three land grants were given him in 1818, totaling 538 acres. He m. Elizabeth Joyce, b. 1776, dau. of William Joyce and wife, by or before 1800, and they had moved to Marion County, Miss. before 1820, as in that year he was named administrator of William Joyce estate.

Note: There were two Abraham Mixon’s in SC about this time, one the sone of Michael an the other the son of John Mixon IV (see #704).  It is not clear as to which the census records refer to.
