The oldest son, Paul Ellis Mixon, had been placed in a Baptist Orphanage in Tanjipahoe Parish with Amite Bank & Trust Company appointed tutor. Aurelius E. Mixon was appointed under tutor, as he was a full brother to Michael Mixon, The Louisiana Trust and Savings bank of Baton Rouge was appointed, and qualified, as tutor to Robert Mixon and Natalie Mixon, Since Paul Ellis Mixon had been double orphaned, the following were listed as cousins to him: C. M. Mixon and Brice Mixon.
