William H. Nixon -- Cherokee County, Alabama

I am looking for information on William H. Nixon who was in Cherokee County, Alabama.William Nixon was born about 1831 in South Carolina. He arrived about 1840/1850. This is about the time that Uriah and Barbara Nixon were there. Information indicates that they were close kin. I THINK that william was married to a Sarah Nixon in Chattooga County, Ga. 15 August 1851. They could have had three children. One going to Arkansas. He DID marry Angeline Petigrew in Chattooga County, Ga. 11 December 1859. Thet had four children: Thomas Houston, Elbert, Cicero, and Della. These are all found on the 1880 Cherokee, Al.Census. William could have deserted this family. A William H. Nixon appears on the 1870 Cherokee Co Census with a Sarah (age 16) and James (age 8/12).
Angeline filed (Ithink)for divorce and was granted one. She married in 1883.

If you have information or would like me to share what I have, e-mail me.
