Military Monday - Clayton Nix, Confederate
Clayton Nix was one of 14 children born to Miles & Francis Nix. Nine of them were sons, of which four died in the Civil War.
Clayton & his brother, John Nix are both my 4th great grandfather's (you figure it out!) on my dad's side.
Clayton married Ann Savannah Naylor 17DEC 1855 in Randolph County, Georgia. At the time of his death the couple had 3 children, Francis, Mary Martha & William Clayton Nix. Ann remarried soon after Clayton's death, but died shortly after, supposedly when her dress became entangled in a wagon wheel of the carriage she was riding in.
The burial location of Clayton has not been discovered as of this writing.
