Axtell Coat of Arms
The Axtell Coat of Arms probably originated with Col. Daniel Axtell about 1648 or 1650.
Burke's "General Armory," 1884, gives the description as follows: "Azure, three axes
argent, handles or", a blue shield on which are three silver axes with handles of gold
and heads uppermost, blades to the left. The Crest consists of two axes with handles
crossed, blades uppermost; a green wreath lies on the handles where they cross, and
beneath is a bar of blue and silver on which the handles rest. Below the bar is a scroll
on which is "Sub cruce glorior" (I glory in the Cross).
