    I am William "Billy" Joseph Mixon and the grandson of
    Charles "Micky" Mixon. I am the son of Cindy Lee Mixon
    (Reams), but I never met my father. I have traced my
    family back to a Jehu Mixon and during the process I
    found your site. Today I found out about the Mixon-
    Mixson Volumes and look forward to learning more about
    my family history.

    hi Larry--I heard about the 'Mixson Family History
    Books, vol. I & II' somewhere before. I know that
    my dad was son of Jesse James Mixon of MS. He was a
    decendant of William Mixon (who came to Alabama from
    SC in a covered wagon). I have seen pics of William
    Mixon as an elderly man with a long white beard and
    balding--just like my dad, his brothers, and my
    grandfather Jesse.

    Interesting development--I was at a gas station in
    Pensacola, FL when I saw a truck parked nearby that
    said, 'Mixon Landscaping' and a tall gentleman who
    looked just like a healthy version of my dad stepped
    out! He must have thought I was not quite right in
    the head, but I tried to explain who I was and why I
    was staring. I never heard of anyone with our
    family name except in Braden, FL. Some of my family
    said there was some family in Texas.

    Years ago, I joined ancestery.cm but dropped my
    membership. I tried to restart it but all the links
    to John Mixon (of Captain Fauntleroy's ship
    manifest) are closed for some reason.

    Thank you for posting this.

    Hi, Larry,
    Thank you so much for all the info on Mixsonian.com.
    My mother,(ref. 3542)Zoe Louise McCann was married to
    Bert Kersch Mixon on August 11, 1934, in Spiro, OK when
    she was 18 and Bert was about 19 or 20. Their marriage
    lasted about five years before they divorced. You are
    correct in stating they had no children. My mom's
    parents were Winfred (Winn)and Bess (short for
    Elizabeth) McCann of Spiro. The name "Holt" you gave
    for Bess' middle name is actually the last name of
    Winn's sister, also a Zoe, who married Charles Holt,
    MD. I thought you might want to know this. Thank you
    so much for all the info on Bert. I appreciate having
    this for my tree on Ancestry.com. Sincerely, Libby
    Hyland

    Thank you so much for all the hard work you put on this amazing website. A lot of questions about my family tree have been answered, but I do have one question concerning how to research and find any information about whether there is actually American Indian ancestors. I'm 65 years old and I've always been told that my great-grandfather, John Richard Mixon(2178) was married to Ida Elizabeth Taylor (daughter of Jim Rhodes Taylor and Gamill Taylor) and that she and her family were Choctaw Indian. I understand that the family didn't talk much about it because it carried a stigma at that time. So, any information concerning how to research this would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Larry, what an extensive website on the Mixon/Mixson family! You've done an incredible job. Micah Mixon was my 6th g.grandfather and his daughter, Anna was my 5th g.grandmother on my father's side. Thank you so much for putting it together. It's given me a lot to go on in my family search.

    Hi Larry,
    Thanks for all your research about the Mixon family. My great-grandfather was Nedom Allen Mixon, the son of Jesse Mixon (b. 1835), who was the son of Edward B. Mixon. According to my great-grandfather's death records, he was born in 1869, although I have seen his birth date listed as 1864 on several family trees. We can find no record of Jesse Mixon after the Civil War (he's not on the 1870 census). However, Mary Ann Ashley Mixon remarried to Elias B. Clark, and they appear on the 1880 census (along with Nedom and her other children by Jesse)in Florida. My question: have you come across any information that would help to explain the mystery of what happened to Jesse? And do we know if he served in the Cavalry or the Infantry in the Civil War? In military records, I find Jesse Mixon listed for both, but it doesn't indicate which county they're from. Thanks for any information you may have.

    Hi Larry!

    I am the great grand daughter Of Thomas E. Mixon, b 1860, #3355 in your book, and Molly Taylor. My grandmother, was Catherine (Kate) Mixon. Do you know what happened to Thomas E. Mixon? I discovered recently that she divorced him in 1893, after having four children by him, Alice, Thomas, Kate, and Cleveland. We all thought he had died. I have searched for him, but can't find him. Maybe he left Florida.

    I appreciate the hard work you have done for the Mixon/Mixson family. Let me know if you or someone else can solve the mystery. Thanks again.

    Hi, I am 63 and the daughter of Mary Helen Hinnant Bass Mixon and Harvey D. Mixon, Jr. My grandmother was Alma Barton Mixon who married Harvey D. Mixon and they had 5 children. However, grandfather left after the 5th child, as he was unable to support the family. I met my grandfather when I was 18 at my Uncle Paul's house at Christmas, but he has always been a mystery to me. Basically some of his children forgave him (2), but the others (my dad for one) never forgave the desertion and refused to continue a relationship. When I was young Harvey D. Mixon came to our house and my dad refused to talk with him and make amends. It is fabulous to connect with this site. Thanks sincerely, Melinda

    Great website Larry. I've discovered more about the "Mixon" lineage using your links than I probably ever would on my own. Thanks, Neil

    I've just seen your site and want to thank you for filling in just who James J. Mixon/Mixson was m. to in the Perry family. In her father's estate settlement of 1841, James J. Mixon received a share. James Perry was twice married, but I think Maria must have been from his second wife Elenor Joyce. The Joyce and Mixon families are so intertwined and difficult to figure out that I've about given up and am just concentrating on the Perry part of it. My husband is descended from another dau. of James and Elenor's, Georgia Ann Perry.

    Larry,

    Your Dad sent me the website. Yours is great and I will have to add
    much more at a later time.
    We lived on the other side of the Andersons
    from your grandfather's house. I have long tried to remember what
    Wilber looked like; but it escapes me. I remember your grandmother
    well.

    It is very interesting to read the geneology. I have not tried to post
    mine; but I do have a website: www.oldgenttent.com
