Re: Mixon/Belk/Braswell's Darlington SC 1820 to Marion Co Al 1830
Thank you for your information. The Mixon and Belk families seem awfully close...I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't an earier connection between these families prior to the late 1700s in SC.
I recently ordered the estate settlement records of William Belk dec'd 1815 in Kershaw Co SC. I was hoping to see anything in there about Rigdon Belk's settlement, and specifically to see if any of his family was mentioned. It showed that Rigdon was alive as late as mid 1817 and received all of his portion of his father's estate.It seems Rigdon Belk then died between mid 1817 and mid 1820 when the Darlington census was taken.
I hope to stumble upon a 'smoking gun' document one of these days that ties Wm Braswell to the Belks etc.
