Claxton Historic Burial Site
First Claxtons to Settle in East Central Georgia
Lincella was the first person buried on their land about 1/2 mile from their home. Only one child - Lincella E. Claxton Price Schwalls - and a few of her descendants were buried on the plot. Later the site became known as the Davis (Schwalls) Cemetery. Claxton Family Reunion members, with yearly organized reunions since 1946, have twice restored the grave site located .8 mile on right side of Johnson County Road 112.
Thousands of descendants have contributed greatly to the growth and development of the great State of Georgia.
