  2. Hmmm….
    Where did all this come from?
    I’m very surprised.
    We would like to know if any of you know each other-
    and how all this info and site came to be?
    Does anyone have any idea?

    This is just a site of 2 people. My mother and I started this site because we’ve been working on Thaxton / Thackston genealogy in the U.S. for 25 years, and thought we would share information with other researchers instead of just keeping to ourselves. (We descend from the line of Thomas Thaxton of Virginia, Pendleton District, South Carolina, and Allen Co., Kentucky.) With respect to these specific records, Texas Death Records and the newspapers with the obituaries are available online; we have just been going through and looking for ones related to the Thackston / Thaxton family.
