John and Sara did not come to Ga. to 1801 or 2. John died in Ms.1832 leaving a will naming all his children living or dead. Sara was still alive. The will was probated in Monroe Ms. ,Settled in 1844 when they sold off all household goods including a bible.
My family history begins with John Nix, born in the 1760's who married Sarah ? They were living in Union County, South Carolina according to the census of 1790. They moved to Georgia around 1800. After much searching I found a land deed in Franklin County, Georgia dated march 30, 1810. John purchased 290 acres of land on Eastanolle Creek near where a Wiliam Nix had settled a few years earlier in 1795. It appears from information that I have found that these two were brothers. William was also listed in the 1790 census of Union County, South Carolina. The evidently came to Franklin County first; with my Ancestor, John, following a few years later. Old land deeds in Franklin and Habersham show that William and John bought and sold land there for several years. William died rather young according to some land deeds, leaving a wife named Sarah and at least three small children. Jonathan, Esther and Moses.
Franklin County deed books dated January 29, 1821 show that John sold 200 acres of land on Eastanolle Creek for $200.00 to Thomas (Collars?). After the sale of their land, John and Sarah, with some of the younger children, moved to Monroe County, Mississippi and appear in the 1830 census there. Only two sons remained at home, most probably the younger sons Benjamin and Aaron. The records show John died perhaps January 12, 1833. He left an estate of over $1,500.00 which was divided equally among his children and heirs. According to the settlement records that were found in the Mississippi Archives, he was a farmer with over 250 acres of land. Portions of the Estate inventory are hard to read, but show that he had horses, cattle, pigs, a goat, three hives of bees and blacksmithing tools. It took from 1833 to 1847 to settle the Estate, as the older children remained in Habersham County and two of the daughters were in Marengo Count, Alabama. During the time the Estate was being settled Benjamin died, leaving his share to three small children who survived him. John and Sarah are probably buried in the old Roberds or Cockrane Cemeteries in Monroe County, Mississippi. There are a number of their relatives buried there. john and Sarah had twelve children.
Lived in Union Co. SC, then moved to Franklin Co. Ga which gave up his area to the new county of Habersham
John Nix went to Miss.With his youngest and his oldest married daughters, including sons Arron and Moses, In his Will of1832,he named all his Children even the sons in Ga,

Nix families in Union County area South Carolina from 1700-1800's. I have a A.Joseph Nix b abt 1736 of Union Co., SC, other Nix's mentioned were possibly brothers of his: John, Benjamin, Aaron, Moses, Solomon, all of Union Co., SC. Are these Nix's connected with the Ambrose Nix of South Carolina?
Notes for SARAH WINTERS:
I made a mistake about the older Winters moving to Gilmer County, GA. Their daughter moved, but considering the age in 1850 of John and Mary, I believe they may have died in Habersham County, GA. John was age 85 and born NC, Mary was 83 and born NC.
John Born ca 1765. Mary born ca 1767.

Notes for WILLIAM T. NIX:
Wiliam Nix and wife Elizabeth sell 20 acres to Solomon Whitson, November 26,1799
Lived in Union Co. SC, then moved to Franklin Co. Ga which contributed his area to the new county Habersham
William Granger Nix, was the second son of John and Sarah Nix. Census records show he wa born about 1788 in South Carolina.
He married on September 3, 1809 to Susannah "Suzie" Stonecypher, who was from Franklin County, Georgia. She was born about 1790 to John and Ann Stonecypher. William and Susannah first lived in Franklin County, Georgia, which was not too far from their home in Franklin County. On October 24, 1833, Solomon Palmer sold to William part of lot No. 14 in the first district on the north side of Tesantee Creek for $500.00. In January 1845, Wiliam bought 80 acres from William Turner for $185.00. On October 13, 1846, A. G. Pitner sold lot one in 4th district to William for $100.00. Evidently William bought and sold much land in Habersham County. The 1860 census for White County, which was formally part of Habersham, lists William's worth as $3,000.00.
The old log home of William and Susannah is still standing in White County near Cleveland, Georgia. Several orphan children were reared in their home and it is said that William never turned anyone away. Some census records show that he had eleven children, I have found the names of all of them, except for two of their dughters.
Both William and Susannah are buried in unmarked graves at the Nix Cemetery in White County, near the old home place.

6. SARAH3 NIX (JOHN2, A. JOSEPH1) was born Abt. 1798 in Union County, South Carolina, and died Bef. 1870 in Monroe County, Mississippi. She married THOMAS CAIN December 31, 1815 in Franklin County, Georgia, son of FATHER CAIN and MOTHER CAIN. He was born 1792 in Georgia, and died August 1873 in Monroe County, Mississippi.
Notes for THOMAS CAIN:
Left the State of Georgia in the year of 1819, and settled aong the banks of the Buttahatchie River in the "Monroe County Missippi Area"/
1. Thomas Cain (Cain-Cane) was born Abt. 1792 in Georgia, and died August 28, 1873 in Monroe County, Mississippi. He married Sara "Sallie" Nix on December 31, 1815, in Franklin County, Georgia, daughter of John Nix and Sarah Unknown.
In October, Thomas enlisted as a private in Captain Walter's company of the Georgia Militia in the war of 1812 at Red Hollow, Franklin County, Georgia as a substitute for John Bowman. He was discharged at Fort Hawkins, Georgia. Thomas was served in the U. S. Army during the War with the Creek Nation from August 1813 to March 1814. He was honorably discharged at Milledgeville (Now Balwin County) Georgia. Pension file #20303.)
Sometime during this time period and before 1820, Thomas and his family moved to Monroe County, Mississippi along with two brothers, Rawson and William CAIN. All are listed on the 1820 Federal Census. Thomas settled near what is now Old Hamilton on a farm of 160 acres In the area known as the Buttahatchie Settlement.
In 1833, Thomas CAIN was named guardian of Franklin, James Monroe, Austin NIX and another NIX child not named. Thomas WHITWORTH was appointed as final guardian for these children. A Thomas G. WHITWORTH married Elizabeth Jane EASTER THOMAS in 1877. Elizabeth Jane's first Husband, William M. Thomas was a half brother of Thomas G. WHITWORTH mentioned above and the daughter of Joannah T. CAIN J. CROSBY? The mother of T.G. Whitworth and Wiliam M. THOMAS was indian.
The children of Thomas and Sally have been compiled from census, deeds and other sources. Because the census before 1850 did not list the names or relationships in the households, it is not always possible to identify them or determine if in fact the minors listed were children or younger siblings. On the 1820 Monroe County, Mississippi census shows two children (one male and one female) born 1810-1820, while the 1830 census narrows it down to 1810-1815. Since Thomas and Sally CAIN did not Marry until December 1815, it would seem this was not their son. It is possible this male was Thomas' younger brother, Able/Abel CAIN as Abel was closely associated with Thomas CAIN'S children, indicating that he may have grown up with them. The female listed on this early census was probably his sister. George HOWELL, Jr. in his studies of the pioneers of Monroe County, included John CAIN of Itawamba County, Mississippi as a possible son of Thomas CAIN. More likely John was another brother.
On December 19, 1850, Thomas applied for a bounty land for his service in the War with the Creek Nation and the War of 1812. This application was #9675 and his service was verified by the Commissioner of Pensions. He purchased three tracts of land in Monroe County with Military Bounty #11577. One of these land purchases was rejected by the commissioner of the U.S. Land Office on March 19, 1852.
On April 26, 1871, Thomas applied for a pension for his military service in the war of 1812. He was required to swear that he had not given aid or comfort to the Confederacy (Pension #15466). This must have been difficult for him to do since he was a loyal Southerner whose sons had served in the conflict. (His son-in-law Moses Perkins Lee also served in the Confederacy).
Sally CAIN filed a declaration for a pension under the Act of March 9, 1879, as a widow of a veteran. She stated that she was living thirteen miles from the County Seat and because of infirmities connected with old age, she was not able to travel there to execute the papers before an officer of the court of record. Her mark was witnessed by F. M. WHITWORTH and G. W. HOUSE and notorized by James J. BASHAM, Justice of the Peace. She gave her address as Temperance Hill, Mississippi.
Sally described Thomas as 24 years of age when he enlisted, a farmer, about 5 (five) and 1/2 (6 inches) feet tall, with flaxen hair, gray eyes and a fair complexion. Apparently, she was mistaken about his age. On September 17, 1879 she was awarded a pension of $8.00 a month....retroactive to March 9, 1878 (Pension #20303).
Thomas and Sallie CAIN lived with their daughter, Nancy J., the wife of P.M. WHITWORTH. On December 8, 1870, a deed of gift was prepared by the CAINS giving possessions and land located in Section 23 and 24, Township 15, range 18, totaling 120 acres to Nancy and F. M. WHITWORTH. F. M. WHITWORTH was required to furnish for Thomas and Sallie CAIN a "comfortable lodging, they are to eat at his table, and fare as the rest of the family during their natural life". This deed was not recorded until May 4, 1874.

It is uncertain at this time why Moses P. Lee was in Grayson County, Texas at the time of his death. It is possible he was visiting his Son Americus L. Lee residing in Grayson County, Texas. His age at the time of his death would have been 79 years old.
A copy of the 1900 Widows Pension for Civil War Confederates shows that Alpha Omega Lee applied for her husbands pension in September of 1900. Application states she was 68 years old, resided in Serepta, Pontotoc County, Mississippi all of her life. It is unknown at this time where and when Alpha died.
Federal Census shows that her parents were born in Georgia. The Federal Census also shows the parents of Moses P. Lee born in South Carolina (Father) and Virginia (Mother).
