Born and died in Abingdon Parish, Gloucester County, VA; in abstracts from Land Patent Box #7, (Richmond), p. 64, September 29, 1680, John Mixon's land is described as joining the land of Major Lewis Burwell in the Carter Creek area of Gloucester County, VA; members of the Abingdon Church in Gloucester.   John Mixon bought lot # 11 in the newly formed Gloucestertowne, located at the mouth of the York River.  At the time John Leslie Mixon printed his books on the Mixon families, it was thought that this town was planned on paper in 1707 but never built.  In 1980 when the College of William & Mary excavated for their Virginia Institute of Marine Science, the foundation of this Gloucestowne was uncovered.  More research by reporters found pictures of the early buildings.  It was situated at the mouth of the York River on Tindall’s Point, directly north of Yorktown (across the river).  It was still occupied as late as 1781 for a French military map was found showing the fortified part of town.  No records of why or when it was abandoned have been found.
