    My mother’s ancestry is Thackston and Thaxton. I can trace lineage back to
    1600s. My relatives were from Charlotte County Va and Bedford County Va.
    Close to Bedford is a very small town with the name Thaxton.
    James Collins

  2. I think I am a descendant of James Thackston and Cynthia Bashram and my dna is on ancestry.com. Is there anybody else with a dna test that thinks they are also descended from james and Cynthia?

  5. My DNA test is on ancestry.com as marycrisp142. I believe that James Thaxton and Cynthia Bashram are my 3rd great grandparents. I would love to compare my dna results with anyone else who is descended through them.

    I am a Thaxton from warren co. Tennessee. I tried to email you but would not send it! I would love to see all the genealogy that you have! I don’t know much of the Thaxton’s there are not many left around here that I know of! My father is a Thaxton and still living for now he turned 75 this year!

  7. High Lora, I know there are a lot of thaxtons in Tennessee. My side was mostly in the Jackston county area and most of them migrated up to Kentucky in the mid to late 1800s. I am 73 and I live in California. I wasn’t sure from your reply if you were a member of ancestry.com and if you had submitted a sample of your DNA. If you would like to correspond and get access to my family tree you can send a message directly to my email account which is maryecrisp@hotmail.com. I hope to hear from you. We’re probably related atlhough it could be many, many generations and too far back to trace.

    Mary who were your Thaxton from Jackson County, Tennessee? My grandfather Fred Thaxton was from there and his father Jim Thaxton who married Lucy Way.

    Does this Thaxton group have a Ged-Match listing page where we could list our Ged-Match number and what Thaxton family link we are from?
