Axtell Family OrganizationAxtell Coat of Arms

Axtell Coat of ArmsThe 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).
