This is the son of Jennings, after he returned from the Civil War and after he left his first wife Elizabeth LITTLETON, and married his Sister-in-law Saleta, GUINN. Several of the children are his by his first wife, including Lenard and Major, and the 14 year listed as Eliza is actually Elijah Alexander. Tally and Amanda are Saleta's

NIX, Lenard, BIL, M, W, 42, Wid, GA, GA, GA, Miner, Talc Mine NOTES; 1) Where is Gordon County, I have not found it on a current map. Gordon seems to be a town East of Macon by 25 miles in Wilkinson County 2) Mandy Liz is short for Amanda Elizabeth Nix. My Mother was named Amanda and always called Mandy, which she hated. 3) Lenard is listed as Wid. But I do not have a wife for him, nor any children. The fact that he is living with his half sister would indicate to me that he may not have any children. 4) The census enumerator got carried away with born in GA. 5) Several dates are off by more than one year, so must review each one separately.
