Hi Dea,
I have a Pryor Sexton in my family. Father was Joseph and mother was Mary Lee. Siblings, Joseph, William, Charles, Archibald Benj., Zadlock, James, and John. My mother has a lot of info on these. Let me know if I can be any help.


Would love to know your proof of Joseph Sexton and Mary Lee being the parents of Pryor Sexton. Thank you,


Hi Paula
At this time we are going by family bibles and the info that has been passed down. We have also found him on the Grayson Co Va censuses. This is some of the info on him.
b 1754 d Sept 1834 in Grayson Co VA
m Caty Coker b 1855 d/o John Michael Coker & Elizabeth
they had 6 children. His son William Sexton Sr is my 4g gfather.
Please let me know if this is the one you are looking for. There were several of them.


Hi Norma, I descend from both William and brother Thronton. I have copies of both William Sr and William Jr bibles. Have relative who has Pryor's bible. Have been researching for 13 years and have been unable to prove or seen written with proff that Pryor's parents were indeed: Joseph Sexton and Mary Lee. It is listed that way in the LDS Files but talked to the lady that put it there and she does not have any proof either. Said she threw it all away. Excuse me. Also we believe, but have no proof that William was really a son of Pryor. When Pryor's estate was divided by the State of Virginia, William was not included in the division. We have all been asking why for years. Been to Little Grassy Creek, NC and visited with the relatives that remain on the lands pioneered by William and Thornton. Could use all the help I can get. Thank you , Paula
