Henry Clay Nix was born on June 11, 1891 in Indian Territory (Oklahoma or Arkansas). Not much is known about Clay's start in life. Death records show that he was born to James and Martha Hermin Nix; however this may or may not be accurate. In 1900 he was living with his uncle, John Robert Nix, who raised him along with a possible a brother Joseph L. Nix (b. 1889) and other cousins. It seemed that Uncle John took in a few orphans of his siblings.
