���������In searching through my wife�s various families,I found these distant Nix connections:

1.Essie J. Leeth md. Freeman Elzie Nix. They are buried in Whitesboro Cem., on Leeth Gap Road in Etowah County.

2.Linnie Genora Badgett md. Floyd Rueben Nix. Linnie is the grad daughter of Mary Amanda Leeth.

3.Maudie Nix md. Raudy Markus Leeth. Maudie is dau of Luther Nix and Minnie Rainey

4.Sarah Adaline Manila Bouldin md. Tom Nix,

Do any of these tie into your data?

3.Maudie Nix md. Raudy Markus Leeth. Maudie is dau of Luther Nix and Minnie Rainey Luther is actually a middle name but is apparaently what he used. I had him listed as (John or James) Luther NIX, Which made him a bit hard to find in my list, but I did find him. I did not know his wife's last name. I only had Minnie from the 1920 and 1930 census. Also I could not completely make out his daughters name but I had something cose to Maudie. Luther was the son of John Henry Nix and Eunice Adaline INMAN. John Henry and Lee's Father Thomas B. were brothers. So this lead tied several loose ends.
