You have Thomas CLAXTON b. 1768, but his father Jeremiah CLAXTON didn't marry Molly PEYTON until 9/9/1786 Westmoreland Co., Va.. If Thomas was born 1786 and died 1808, he was still 22 yrs old at the time of death. Also he only had one child, Richard? BUT he would have married Alsey at age 14---1/17/1798 Westmoreland. Any thoughts?
