There ix a German family named Rixie that I am a part of. They immigrated I think port of entry was New Orleans. They settled in Illinois somewhere around Golconda County. MY FATHER RAYMOND RIXIE WAS BORN IN ROSEBUD, Illinois. His parents moved from Illinois to Hardeman County, TN. They had numerous children and I believe some of the cousins from Illinois moved to Texas. Don't know if this will help you. Good Luck.
