Anyone working on the family of John W. Nixon and his wife, Eleanor Jones??
They were both born in Tennessee and were married in Greene Co., TN on 22 April 1830.
They are then found in the 1840 census of Chesterfield Dist., South Carolina.
The family is then found in the 1850-1870 Censuses of Campbell Co., GA where I am speculating they lived out their lives. Their children are found in the surrounding counties of Carroll & Douglas, as well as Campbell.
Campbell Co., GA was dissolved and merged into Fulton Co., GA in 1932.
Family Chart is below. All items are documented.
Please contact me if you think you recognize this family.I have more information on some of the later generations.
