I can't believe I never answered you. Sorry.
I do have Nancy HIXES siblings. They were as follows:
Elizabeth HIX, married William HALL 16 June 1787 in Caswell Co. They must have moved shortly after their marriage to Randolph Co., for I find them on the 1790 census there, with 1 male and l female in addition to themselves. They were living beside Willis HIX,(Nancy's brother,) who married Tabitha Moore, 9 Mar. 1784, also in Caswell Co., NC. She also had a brother Benjamin, of whom I know nothing about, A William HIX, who is also on the 1800 census in Montgomery Co., NC; a brother Davis -this is MY LINE. He married Rebecca LOFLIN about 1794 in either Rowan or Randolph Co.NC. The youngest was Isaiah who married a sister to Davis' wife, Mary LOFLIN. This family moved to Brown Co., IN.
The Source for the names of the siblings is found in the LOFLIN file at the State Archives in Raleigh. The reason for its being in the LOFLIN file, is because Davis HIX was executor of his father in law's estate in 1846. From Court records in Randolph County, I have learned that their mother's name was called Betty. (She witnessed as affray which involved her son Isiah Hix.) There is also an Elizabeth HIX on the 1790 census, and I believe that to be the same person. I have also learned that an Elizabeth HIX was married to a Henry HIX who died about 1783/4, in Caswell Co.(She would of course be a widow-as the Elizabeth of the 1790 census, was.) It is entirely possible that Henry and Elizabeth could be your Nancy's parents. Need to do a little more research on this.
I see some reference to this family on the Websites, however, the dates they use could not be the same as this Elizabeth and (Henry's) They would have to have been born around 1735/45 to have had a family as early as 1762, the approximate date that their daughter Elizabeth was born.
Can you shed any facts on my comments? Keep in touch..I'm still researching this line.
