Surnames: Buxton, Strother, Johnson, Doyle
The Oakdale area always comes up when I learn something new on the Buxton's. I know there are still Buxton's living in the Oakdale area and a Buxton reunion is held there at least every other year. I hope someone can help me. I have hit a brick wall that I can't seem to penetrate.

Seeking any information on Valentine "Tine" Buxton who lived in the Oakdale area. Tine was named as an accomplice in a shooting on May 25, 1896, and served time in Angola Prison.(Angola verified that he had served time there, they just couldn't or wouldn't tell me when). His brother Salvan (Savine, Sylvan) was also acused, but I don't how the disposition of the case against him turned out. Two Johnson cousins were also involved in the case. I think both of them served time.

Valentine was first married a Sophia Strother (daughter of Frank Strother and Mary Willis) and later married Polly Ann Johnson (daughter of W.O. Johnson and Melissa Wisby). Both Valentine and Polly Ann are buried at Oakhill Cemetery at Oakdale. Would like to know where Sophia is buried.

Also seeking info on one of Valentine's and Sophia's son's, Sherrod "Shirley" Buxton married first to Lucinda Doyle and later to Ellen Johnson. Any information regarding this family (ancestors and descendants) would be greatly appreciated.

My records that your grandfather was the son of Dew and Synthy Buxton. I have been searching and searching for the parents of Dew Buxton. His death certificate says that his mother was Alzeny Buxton, but no father is given. I have heard many different stories, but nothing that can be documented. Is there any family still alive that might know the truth? Is there a family Bible or anything with records? I am curious because I know that Dew (Duriman) spent a lot of time with my ggreat grandfather, Valentine B. Buxton. I have heard that they were brothers, step brothers, and that Valentine was his uncle. Can you clear any of this confusion?

I tried emailing you at the email address you provided but it bounced back to me. Email me at d_blaisdell@yahoo.com. Are there date of births or dates of deaths with Tine and Harrison's names? Are any other siblings listed?

Was just wondering if you were related to Alfred Durelee Buxton. His mother's maiden name was Lola Coker and her father was William Bryant Coker.
