    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.
