According to family tradition, my father's mother Lucy Jane Axton (b. Ohio Co. Ky. 23 Mar 1881; d. Ohio Co. 8 Jun 1953) was the daughter of James Taylor Axton and granddaughter of Levi Carter Axton. My father's middle name was Tracy, a possible indication of a connection to Lois Tracy Axton and/or John Parsons Tracy referred to in your posting. However, I have not seen any other documentation indicating that Lucy Axton was in fact the daughter of James Taylor Axton. I would be interested to hear if the biography you refer to concludes that my grandmother Lucy Axton was James Taylor Axton's daughter. And if a copy of William Fitch Axton's biography of the Kentucky Axtons and/or your article about Woodford Fitch Axton is available, I would be very grateful to receive it!
