This information comes from the SKINNER FILES, located in the Hartsville Genealogical Research Library. Shared with Suzy Dixon Bennett by Donna Walker who deserves the credit for this amazing research. (I should mention that I have more informatin on the Mc Lendon family in another packet sent to me by another distant cousin from Baton Rouge, LA.)

I also have maps of land where Abel Dixon and my (5th great grandfather - Draper Dixon)lands were laid out included with this packet of papers. I think it would probably be more helpful to you if I just made copies for you. It would probably be a lot easier for you to follow.
