Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have dabbled in ancestral research all my life, but took it up seriously only a year and a half ago. I was thrilled to find info regarding my family on this site - through it, I reconnected with some long-lost cousins and recently made a visit to Georgia and Florida to visit family graves.
I am also happy to take photos and share them with others whenever possible, as I know how challenging travel to visit one's roots can be!
If you see one of your kin among the sites I maintain, and the person is not my relative, I'll be glad to transfer them to you. Please feel free to suggest any additions and/or corrections.

RE: Joseph Drury Nixon
Thank you for the leads- I have torn so many up over the past 15+ years. I keep lookin - someday - just like how you posted Joseph Drury Nixon.

Good Luck in your Hunting,

Donna -

Thank you for your reply :-)

I did send you a couple of updates for this memorial via the "edits" tab. If you go to your contributor page and look at the top, you will see five tabs across the top

Click on the Edit tab and you will see the ones I sent you, including one to update his middle name.
He was named for his two Grandfathers -
Joseph Nixon, Sr. and Drury/Drewry Allen.

If you wish to transfer, we will not turn it down :-) :-) Our FindAGrave Contributor ID #46892856

He was the only child of the youngest brother of Bob's 3x GGrandfather. The father of Joseph Drury Nixon was Joseph Nixon, Jr. He died in July 1862 in the Civil War. That is all we know. I keep checking F/G to see if his memorial has possibly appeared, but so far no luck.

Thank you again - yes your contribution has solved one of those family items that was lost - and now refound.

Many Blessings to you!
Valerie & Bob

You have made my YEAR!

I have been trying to figure out what happened to Joseph after the 1900 Census. And took a look at F/G tonight and see you just recently added him.

I have been searching for 15+ years and finally!

Thank you!!!! Thank you!!!!

Donna - thanks for adding the photo to Margaret Harrington. It's sad that cemeteries are allowed to be neglected so badly - should be some law... Anyhow, I'm grateful to you.

Jeff :)

If you have already taken the Harrington photo(s), go ahead and post them - I believe it to be the correct one.
