[page 52]

MAYO, Caswell Armstrong, pharmacist, was born at Columbus, Miss., July 3, 1862, son of Thomas H. and Anna (POUNCEY) MAYO.  His family descended from William MAYO, a surveyor, who emigrated from Wiltshire, England, to the Barbadoes and thence to Virginia about 1730.  He surveyed the dividing line between North Carolina and Virginia and by royal grant received a tract of land on the James River below Richmond which was the family homestead for many decades.  The line from William and his wife Frances GOLD is through John and Mary TABB, William and Elizabeth (BLAND) POYTHRESS, Robert Atkinson and Sarah TALIAFERRO, and Peter Helm and Isabel BURTWELL, who were the grandparents of Caswell A. MAYO.
