Daniel Sexton Cape Girardeau Missouri 1797-1806
Daniel Sexton, purported son of George Sexton and Sarah Harlan of Maryland, appears to have spent several years in and around Cape Girardeau and New Madrid Missouri during the years 1797 through 1806 (last date of record). Also in Cape Girardeau was Daniel's brother, Joshua Sexton (first record 1802, land claim 1806) and one Charles Sexton, relationship unknown. Does anyone know who this Charles Sexton was? He was in the Cape Girardeau district as early as 1797, particiapated as a drummer in the Spanish Militia (1802), filed land claims through the early American era and appears to have remained in the area until at least as late as 1813.
