Recently, I noticed your listing of Leondus (Lee) Nix, b. abt 1874, Blount Co., Ala., on Rootsweb�s World Connect. I think I may have some information to help you on this person. �If he is the same man, Lee Nix died Apr. 1937, DeKalb Co., Ala. He md. Artie (Arty) Jones, and she died Jan 1931, DeKalb Co., Ala. Three of their daughters, Bessie, Ella and Camie Odessa, married Roden men. Ella and Odessa�s husbands were brothers and Beulah was a first cousin to them. �I have more on these three daughters if it of any interest. All three have living children.

Note; I realize that the date of marriage and DoB of the first and maybe second children do not match, but that is what the census shows, this record is not the best quality, but the ages of children is very clear. That would put birth of second abour the time of mariage and birth of first at about age 16 for mother. � �
