Many more graves in this cemetery this is about all I have for now... Stay tune for photo!!!!

Now for some questions!?!?!?! These people are just ones I want to know about. May or may not be buried in this Cemetery.. Will find out next visit..

There is a dau mentioned as Mrs Warren Nixon in the obit of Millie Ann Harrell (see above). Dont know the name of this dau.

Also Millie Ann's 3d husband was Wm Joiner and Millie Ann had a dau, Julia Ann Rogers, who supposedly married Needham Joiner.

I also have, in my tree, a James Nixon who mar. Mary Burnham. Mary was the sister of Ada Beatrice Burnham, 2d wife of Levi Hendley Harrell. Parents were Miles A. and Rebecca (Coffee) Burnham.

Also a R. F. Nixon mar. Nancy Jones, dau of Charles Jackson and Millie Ann (Seay) Jones. Charles Jackson goes back to William B. and Nancy Ann (Raffield) Jones...

Also Annie Lou Nixon mar. Hardy Morgan Harrell, son of Asa Bryant and Eliza (Burch) Harrell

Anyone know of any connections between these Nixon or between these Joiners?????
