I am trying to find out information concerning the parentage of Thomas Clayton Nixon (1837 – 1884), Deputy Sheriff of Dodge City, KS. He is my gggrandfather, married to Cornelia Caroline Houston. We know he came from Seminole, GA.
I have found a census that shows a James Mansfield Nixon with the below childrens names:
William Nixon 1830, Abner Nixon 1832, Elvira Nixon 1834, Samantha Nixon 1836, Thomas Clayton Nixon 1837, James Nixon 1840, Robert Nixon 1842.
If you are related to any of these Nixons, and have information, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
