Today I was checking out the information on Clarence Jennings Nix on Roots Web and found your information. �

I do research on the people who rest in the Eldorado Cemetery in Eldorado, Jackson Co, OK. �I have some additions which you might be interested in and also some differences. �Use what you want.

Clarence Jennings Nix died 17 Feb 1959. �He was born in Leonard, TX. �His second wife was Vesta Viola Gatlin (her second marriage). �She was born 1 Feb 1901 and died 25 Nov 1979 in Chillicothe, Hardeman Co, TX. �They are both buried in Eldorado.

I was quite surprised to find that Sarah Elizabeth Freeman Nix is also buried in Eldorado. �I show from the gravestone that her birthdate is 18 Mar 1866.

For Fred Eugene Nix I have the birthdate as 16 February 1901, from his obituary and that he was born in Floyd, TX.

I had not found the name of Clarence Nix's first wife, so thanks for that. �Also I did not have the children of Miles & Sarah correct. �One which I had and you didn't was William Oliver Nix. �However, since you had a William Henry I decided my William Oliver was in the wrong family.

Thanks for your help.
