Recently rechecked the 1820 census for smithfield/Mt. Pleasant and..(could not read the film several years ago. perhaps this is a new copy).............. found a Sarah Paxton, head of household........ 2 1 1 2 0 0 1 1 1 1Mt.

My immediate family Paxton gal is Sarah b/1810 in VA. that could take care of one female.She was in the area by 1830 to m/David DeYARMON (b/1803 in Philadelphia). Sarah and David are buried at Highland Cemetery in Mt. P. Sarah, HOH, could be the female b/1775-1794....In the 1820 census, Sarah HOH, is five houses from David DeYarmon.SR. For the males....AND this is strickly GUESSTIMATION.... Thomas b/about 1801 Loudoun Co., VA m/#2 Sarah Mc Cormick
Amos b/1804.Traveled to Iowa with above David deYarmon.Amos married and remained in Iowa.David's (JR) sister Sarah Ann, b/1809 in Jeff Co., m/Nathan Crowley and later moved across the Ohio River into Ohio/Brooke WV.Sarah and Nathan later moved to Illinois and Iowa.Wife of Amos & husband of Sarah Ann died.Amos and Sarah Ann m/in Iowa.
James H.paxSon b/1807 in Loudoun Co., VA m/Nancy Ann ROUSE possible second marriage because census shows that they have a son, George W. b/1841 Ohio.James and Nancy weren't married until 1846 and the second child, Elizabeth, b/1847 James H.& Nancy lived near Sarah b/1810 and David. also buried at Highland cemetery.I did find a James that m/Sarah WILLIS 21 March 1839.Could this be the mother of George W. b/1841?????
Eaton, b/1818 in PA m/#1 or #2 Luiza. This couple is found in later census of Smithfield.
Since Thomas & James H. were b/in VA and Eaton was b/PA.... could they have left Loudoun Co., VA moved into PA and then Jefferson Co., Ohio????
OH YEA!! I have checked and rechecked the Hinshaw books and thus far, have found nothing........... IF!! all these ladies and gents are of the same family..... Eaton b/1818 in PA and another son, b/after 1810 Papa Paxton/Paxson could have died after the birth of Eaton.But WHY did they come into Jefferson Co., Ohio???? I did find several of the surname migrating from VA and PA into Columbiana Co., Ohio.
Any assistance, proof/disproof, corrections, additions are appreciated and very much welcome Audrey, transplant from Jefferson Co., Ohio to Florida.
