Tax receipts "received of Mrs. L.P. Griffin, paid by D.C. NIX" for the years 1912, 1913, 1914 (actually paid Feb ! 1915), 1915 and 1916. The item to note is that at least as early as 1912 Granddaddys Mother was refered to as Mrs. L,P. Griffin. I still do not know who the husband was or when they were married. Harrison, her first husband died in 1898.

There is a detail tax record for the years 1913 and 1914 that describes the property as follows. SW1/4 SE1/4 Section 1 T12 R3 40 Acres SE1/4 SW1/4 Section 1 T12 R3 40 Acres S1/2 NW1/4 SE1/4 Section 1 T12 R3 20 Acres E1/2 NW1/4 Section 12 T12 R3 80 Acres NW1/4 NE1/4 Section 12 T12 R3 40 Acres NE1/4 SW1/4 Section 12 T12 R3 40 Acres.

1899 RETURNED LIST 1899 (This is the tax record for the tas year of 1899, signed 3 Dec 1898, the year that Harrison Jenning died, d. 20 May 1898, so it may be a very good record of the property that he had when he died.

1900 Census Alabama Etowah County, Union/Wasrrior, <www.Ancestry,Com>. The entire Nix family is living along this road, James Russell as a servent to the Humphries, Daniel with only Audie, Louisa P, With all of the children except Grover, after Harrison died. Nannie Nix, Widdow of DAavid S. with all of her family, and Daniel with Nancy his second wife.

1910 census shows Netia Griffin living with Joseph P Griffin in the house that was occupied by GGrandmother Conn in the 1900 census. Age 51 which agrees with previous records for born 3 April 1859. Years of present marriage 5, children born 8, living 7. This would mean they married 1905. I can check that with the letters Earlene found. Also 8 born 7 living would leave room for Grover that We have not been able to define.
