Sorry to Disappoint you. This is not the same Francis Nivens.
The Francis I knew was my Aunt. She was married to Roy Glen Nivens.
Roy Nivens was born 2/10/1919 and I do not have a maiden name for Francis. They had two boys, Bill & Jerry. The last I knew of the boys they had married & also had children. The only other information I have on this branch of family is that Jerry was divorced from the Mother (Jo Anna Harp Nivens) of two children - Mark & Melody.
Francis and Roy lived in Stinnett, Texas until his death in the late 1970's, she passed away in the late 1990's. He and Francis were buried in Hale County at Plainview, Texas.
All I have is recent family history and am trying to make connections back two & three generations at this point.
If you could send any information via mail regarding Nivens I will be happy to pay postage costs.
