      Your question seemed to speak of John Thaxton (father, b.1730) and John Thaxton (son, 1760-1835) as a single person. John Allison, b. 1760, was referred to as "Sr." because he also had a son named John born in 1805. John Thaxton, Sr. was my 4GGrandfather. Following is a brief report on the first couple of generations I have for this line. You mentioned a couple of points that I was not aware of, so I would love to share more information. Please feel free to contact me.
