1870 Mississippi Co., AR census re. William Jennings Nix/Nicks Wanda also read his age as 16 but when I look at the copy I use I see 14 - either way I'm sure it is my Wm. J.

Your info on the descendants of Wm. J. and Martha E. are correct with the following additions and correction - Ora Lee NIX born 20 Aug 1888 married John Samuel DAVIS and their children were Garland; Ora Bramlet and James Marion. Dora Letty NIX b 10 Mar 1894 married Henry BERGER and they had one son to my knowledge and his name was William Jennings BERGER. Cecil Mattie NIX married Charles R. CARROLL and they had no children (they lived at the foot of Pettie Jean Mountain and I was at their home on several occasions, sweet wonderful people). Grace Missouri NOX died 18 Feb 1988.

I need to get back to Wanda because she had some info on John NIX age 13 ub 1870 but I can't seem to find my notes.

Also she wanted me to ask you if your mother was fond of poems - Wanda thought she might have named you after Joyce Kilmer the man who wrote the poem "I think I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree" - what do you think.

Will get back to you later - having company starting tomorrow until Fri. Take care,


Ora Sue (Lee) Bramlet daughter of William Jennings Nix & Martha Elizabeth Moore is incorrectly listed as having been married twice. Her maiden name is Ora Bramlet Nix and she married John Samuel Davis. I reconfirmed this with her granddaughter since I was not aware of her having been married twice. Ora Bramlet Nix and John Samuel Davis had:

Garland Davis b.abt. 1911 d. Unknown buried Conway Co., AR. He married Mary Betty Irving. They had (1) William "Bill" �Irving Davis and (2) Michael "Mike" Davis

James Marion "Jimmy" Davis b. abt. 1918 d. Unknown�- buried Unknown. Married Juanita Uknown and they had (1) James Ad Davis (deceased - killed in auto accident when he was teenager).

John Lilburn "Tidy" Davis b. 23 Oct 1913 d. 09 Aug 1932 buried Wolfe�Cemetery, Oppelo, Conway Co., AR.
