David Hix Not Listed as a Son in Samuel Hix Granville County, NC will
I have recently found that I am a direct descendant of David Hix born c. 1719 in Goochland, VA and died c. 1792 in Valle Crucis, Ashe County, NC. I see many, many files on the World Connect Project that name David Hix as a son of Samuel Hix and Diana Willis which I don't understand due to the contents of the will of Samuel Hix. This will names a grandson David Hix son of Samuel Hix, Jr.
Can someone shed light on whom the parents of David Hix were or am I missing something here with Samuel Hix and Diana Willis.
I did find a will of John Hix recorded May 17, 1748 in Goochland County, VA which does name a son David Hix.
Thanks in advance.
