 THE MIXON-MIXSON FAMILY

732 MARY E. MIXSON

(Refer to Archibald Kirkland Mixson, #709)

Mary E. Mixson, dau. of Archibald Kirkland Mixson and Elizabeth Calhoun Mixson, was b. 1820, d. 1895, m. (1) Joseph Robinson, m. (2) U. , L. Pridgeon, m. (3) John M. Williams. Family information is incomplete, but it is understood she had two sons. A magnificient woman, when she learned of the wounds suffered by her, brother, James Joyce Mixson (735) on the battlefields near Atlanta, she went for him and took him to her home in Savannah to care for him. The surgeons removed the bone from his shoulder to his elbow without anesthetics. For several years the wound refused to heal until a fragment of dead bone worked out. During this time the little family suffered great privation as all his Confederate money was worthless and his seven slaves had been freed. Gen. James A. Mixson (871) recalls a story told him by his father that he had gone hungry when he was a little boy. The General also tells us about his grandfather (in spite of having a limp left arm with no bone from his shoulder to his elbow) served as sheriff for his county (probably Levy County) for one or two terms. Gen. Mixson says he now owns some of the lands once owned by his grandfather that the latter had bought from Capt. Tanner in 1857. Capt. Tanner's son, Henry, was the first husband of Sarah E. Mixson (736), a dau. of Archibald Kirkland Mixson (709). When Sarah married Miles John Mixson (a first cousin), her sister, Mary (732) took the son to Savannah, where he died at the age of 16. Sarah and Miles John Mixson had two or more children, all dying in infancy. No record has been found of them, their names and the dates of their births, or dates of death.
