THOMAS B. NIX: A SHORT HISTORY This will really be a short history, because I know almost nothing about Thomas B.

He was the first born of Tyre and Lettice Holden, 1849 in Pickens South Carolina before the family started their move to North Alabama. In Alabama he met and married Dicey Ellen Hopper, 3 Jan 1918 (that is wrong)!!!. By the time is mothers estate was petitioned in Oct. 1877, he had died. I do not know his DoD, place of burial, cause of death or any other details. In fact I am even confused about the number of children, their names, and why only one of his then living children was mentioned in his Mother�s estate petition.

The State of Alabama, Etowah County

At a regular term of the Honorable, the Court of Probate, held in and for said county, and State, at the Court House of said County in the City of Gadsden, on the second Monday of October, in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and seventy seven, (1877) being the Eighth (8th) day of said month, the following proceedings were had, to-wit; The Hon Lemmel(?) E. Hamlin presiding Judge.
