Surprise, surprise! There were TWO Chosewell Dixons.

This is from Craven County Deed Book 25, page 305. William Dixon, Chosewell Dixon, Senr. and Chosewell Dixon were witnessing a transaction between David Dixon, Senior’s nephew, and Aliff Cuthrell. The deed is dated December 11, 1783.

I wonder if Chosewell Jr. was the Chosel Dixon who entered a patent in Carteret County on Houston’s Creek (now Holston’s Creek in Jones County) January 25, 1786. The patent was issued November 16, 1790.
