I have a Charles Gardner Trafton( b. 31 Dec 1760 in Massachusetts and d. 2 sep 1831 in Camden County, NC) who married my 4G Aunt Lovey McPherson( 24 Sep 1776 South Mills, NC d. 1 Apr 1802 in Camden County, NC). She was the dt. of Joshua McPherson and Courtney Hixon.
This is all I have but sometimes, every little bit helps!

I have information on various Traftons: Thomas, Thadeus, Zachary, George, George M. . Berlin F., Howard, Berlin R., Carroll and others in the state of Maine. The information is too lengthy to include unless they are of interest to you. Please respond if they are.

Gardner Trafton of Dighton, MASS entered The Port of Currituck in the ship named "Nancy" on Dec. 26, 1787. This was not his only trip in NC. He married Lovey McPherson and had a least the following four children: Courtney, b. January 28, 1793, Joseph Talbot, b. November 5, 1796, Benjamin b. February 8, 1799 and John Wesley b. February 8, 1799 (twin).

Lovey died April 1, 1802. Gardner married Mary.

Records or Gardner's descendents can be found at The Family Research Library in Elizabeth City, NC (252)333-1640

Gardner and his family are buried on Trafton Road in Camden County. Only Gardner and two grandsons have stones remaining. The cemetery is between and a little behind the first two houses on the left. Feel free to ask at one of the houses for directions if you can't find it.

My Great Great Great Grandfather was Malachi Trafton SR. This is the only Trafton's that I have been able to track.
