I am a Thaxton researcher and I wondered if you had more information about Sarah Thaxton who married Foster Johnson in 1903? I don't have her parents, though I have an idea who they might be. I would appreciate hearing from you about any Thaxtons you have encountered in your research. My direct email address is I look forward to hearing from you.
