I am not related to the Fix family but have found some info in a book that I purchased at a yard sale recently. The info was written by hand in the front of the book and here it is:
Mrs. R.J. Fix, 518 Laura St., Jacksonville, Fla.
Also written below that info is:
Edith Doloas (spelling?) Moseley, January, 1/3/19, Edith and Pudge (or Perdge) spending the afternoon at home.
Inside the front cover of this book is a sticker that says "War Service Library, This book is provided by the people of the United States through the American Library Association for the use of the Soldiers and Sailors."
Book title is: "Mr. Crewe's Career"
Book was published in 1908.
Knowing that the US became involved in WWI and had a civilian draft during 1917-1918 and also knowing that there is a WWI induction card site on the internet I checked both and found the following info:
Two men from Jacksonville, FLA were given and their names are Ryan Joseph Fix and James F. Fix.
Ryan Joseph Fix was on the civilian draft registration index and in the info column that said "Born in or other info" it showed Augusta, Ga. Ryan was born in 1892.
James F. Fix was shown on the WWI induction cards and was born about 1900 if I am reading his age correctly. His age looks like 19 years. It looks like he may have enlisted in 1915 or 1919 it is hard to read. Born in Augusta, GA.
Perhaps these men are related to your Augusta, GA family. I bought the book because it is old and wanted to see if it had any value. Yvonne
