Captain Thomas Dixon, born about 1700, died 1763, married about 1720 Judith Wingfield of Sussex County, Va. She was the daughter of Jarvis Wingfield and Hannah Wynne. I am looking for the parents of Captain Thomas Dixon of Sussex and any other information related to this family. Captain and Mrs. Dixon's daughter, Martha, married Dr. James Greenway of Dinwiddie County, VA.
