This paper writing purporting to be the last will and testament of David Thaxton deceased, late of said County was this day presented to me in my office and duly proved by the oath of William Ranson, subscribing witness thereto: and on the 28th day of March 1877, the same was fully proved by the oath of John H.

David and Martha Thaxton were the first Thaxtons to settle in what is now central West Virginia. They arrived in what is now Kanawha Co, WV in 1838 from Bedford Co. VA and settled on Tupper's Creek. (Per Spunky Thaxton, there is an article on the descendants of David Thaxton in the "West Virginia Heritage Encyclopedia, Vol. 21" Edited and Published by Jim Comstock, Richwood, WV @1976.


General Notes for Child Robert Clarkson Thaxton

In the 1840 census, a Robert Faxton is listed. The ages of the children and the wife match that of Robert C. Thaxton. Good Possibility that this is Robert Thaxton, not Robert Faxton. Robert moved from Bedford County to Kanawha County area between 1834 and 1838. His first wife died between 1880 and 1885. He married his second wife in 20 May 1885 in Charleston, WV (license number 105).

General Notes for Child Sallie Lewis McConihay

Obituary submitted by Rose Peterson to Kanawha County Bible Records (Internet):

MRS. GOSHORN's DEATH

Occurred (sic) Sunday Morning at Cedar Grove--- Funeral Here Yesterday. [April 1900]

The death of Mrs. Sallie L. Goshorn, who had been slowly sinking for several weeks at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Dr. C. H. Malcolm, at Cedar Grove, occurred Sunday morning at 8 o'clock. The funeral services were conducted yesterday morning at 11 o'clock at the Baptist church on Capital street, by Rev. T. C. Johnson, assisted by Rev. C. G. Christian, pastor of the Presbyterian church at Malden, after which the remains were interred in Spring Hill cemetery. Mrs. Goshorn was the widow of the late David Goshorn, who died in 1872. Her father was John McConihay, who settled here in 1805. At the time of her death, she was 69 years old. She was married July 11, 1850 and was the mother of eight children, six of whom survive her. They are J. W. Gorshorn, of Buffalo, N. Y.;
Ernest Goshorn and Alban Goshorn, and Mrs. E. J. Palmer, of this city and Louis Gorshorn and Mrs. Dr. C. H. Malcolm of Cedar Grove. Mrs. Gorshorn has been since her fourteenth year a consistent member of the Baptist church of this city, having been one of the original thirteen who formed it. She has ever been a liberal supporter
of all benevolent objects connected with her church and was loved and admired by all for her beautiful christian character and consistent life. About a year ago she selected the text, taken from the last verse of the sixth chapter of Romans, from which she requested her funeral sermon to be preached, and also the xxiii psalm to be read. The funeral services were largely attended, among those present from a distance being Mrs. Harry McConihay, of Russell, Ky., F. G. McConihay and wife of Lewiston and James McConihay and wife of East Bank. Those who acted as pall bearers were Elbert, George, William and Henry Goshorn, Harry Anderson and Dr. J. M. McConihay, all nephews of the deceaded.
