Hi,

My grandmother was a Nix. Her father was Elijah Marion Nix and her grandparents were Ezekial Nix and Dorothy Crumpton Nix.

Can you tell me how the family name of Kirksey connects to the Nix line.

I'm attaching a web site that is very interesting.

Nix
The History Of An American Family










Out of the mist of the Appalachian Mountians and out of the mist of time a man named William Nix made his way through a virgin wilderness. With his wife Frances he traveled into lands never seen before by most white men. Along the way he left a legacy of children that would grow to help populate this land and in their own small way shape it's future.

Where did William Nix come from? Who were his parents? These are questions that seem shrouded in mystery and lost somewhere in the mist of those times.

This web site doesn't promote racism. It does promote family history. The confederate battle flag is a symbol of part of that history and for better or worse it represents an important part of American history. There were over 560 Nix's in the Civil War on both sides, my branch of the family just happened to fight for the South. These men fought for their families, their homes and their country. I am sure they still would if they could, no matter what flag might be flying over it at the time.


This web site is always under construction and is dedicated to our dad, Jack Wayne Nix.
