Family historian George F. Millett corresponded with many Thackston / Thaxton descendants in the 1940s and 1950s, compiling hundreds of family group sheets and, importantly, identifying the source of his information. Periodically, we will try to summarize some of the information collected by George. His family group sheets have been filmed by the Family History Library in Salt Lake City (microfilm rolls 1205469 and 1205470), and are numbered (as “B”-). We have redacted information on persons born in the 1930s or later.
