Just a little to get started. The bottom of your tree is still a little mixed up in my files? Raymond Henry, 1st, son of Henry W and Rosa Goins/
William and Martha Cobb/
Abraham and Elizabeth Blair/
Thomas and Elizabeth Clark Tipton.
Thomas Hix died without a will and his probate in Blount Co TN shows he died before 1840 with the following heirs in addition to his wife Elizabeth Tipton Hix who married (2) Thomas Davis 7 Nov 1840. Abraham Hix (md Betsa Blair); Andrew Hix (md Sarah Brickey); Isabella Hix (md John Blair);
Mary "Polly" Hix (md Samuel Walker); Elijah Hix (md Sarah Starkey); William Hix; Hannah Jane Hix md Elijah L. Hatcher); Elizabeth Hix (md Levi Brewer). These marriage records all are in Blount Co.
Moving back before Thomas is still a challenge. It appears that the family is tied to Sullivan Co, TN; ie State of Franklin; NC extension after the RW.
