#62582770 Joe Edward Nixon
Hello Mr. Diehl,

My name is Kathy Finnigan Quade and I am researching my family history, The Williams of Burleson County.

In researching my family, I had a great Aunt by the name of Allie Matilda Williams. She married a Fletcher J. Nixon on May 7th, 1894.

According to an old family photo I found in my Aunt's chest, Allie and Fletcher had 3 children.
Jesse Lee Nixon
Ethyl L. Nixon
Joseph Edgar Nixon

Joseph Edgar is the person I am writing you about. Is it possible that Joseph Edgar is your Joe Edward Nixon? Do you know his parent's history? Their names or where they are from?

All I have is this picture of their family, with my aunt's handwriting listing Fletcher and his sister with her baby, Allie and Joe Edgar as a baby, a small girl which is listed as Ethyl Nixon and a young teenager which is listed as Jesse.

I am so excited to have found this possible lead.

I am the youngest grandchild and my older cousins didn't even know where their great Aunt had been buried. It has been a long journey, but an interesting one.

I believe you would be interested in the Williams if they are your family. You may view them in my public tree "Williams Ancestry Tree" at if you wish.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Have a wonderful holiday.

Thanks so much, Kathy Finnigan Quade

RE: Matthew Arnold Parker
Then that makes us kin! Matthew Parker's 1st wife was Mary Isabelle "Polly" Isaacks, who was my 2nd great grand aunt. Cannot wait until I need to go to Hemphill (that is where we have to go to buy groceries) and find the marker. Thank you so very much. Kay

RE: Eliz. Brewer/John Southard Relative?
Thank you for answering my question about if you were related to John Southard or Elizabeth Brewer. Yes, I am related to both of them. Do you know of anyone related to them in Lycoming Co.?

RE: Eliz. Brewer/John Southard Relative?
Hello Jack, are you related to John Southard or Elizabeth Brewer family buried in Quaker Hill Cemetery? I noticed you put a message below John Southard's tombstone that he was buried by Elizabeth. Just wondering :)

RE: bertie diehl buckner
Thanks much. Anything you have would be great. Bertie and Tom Buckner were my mother's parents. I'm sure we are related down the line.
