Thomas Nixon and Family

Thomas Nixon and Family

Posted: 1299976891000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Nixon/Clem
I have been researching the Nixon family. I have been able to trace the ancestry to Thomas Nixon, b. Abt. 1840 in Ireland. He immigrated to New Brunswick, Canada. Married Susannah (Susan) Clem. Five children all born in Nova Scotia: William H. Nixon, b. Abt. 1865; Mansfield M Nixon, b. 1867 m. Alice Norris Wing; Clara Nixon, b. Abt. 1871; Margaret (Maggie) Nixon, b. Abt. 1874, m. William Fisher; James W. Nixon, b. Abt. 1879, m. (possibly) Jennie W.; and Annie S. Nixon, b. Abt. 1884. Does anyone in "genealogy land" have any info on marriage and death dates for Thomas (possible S.) Nixon and who his parents are? I have many census for this family, but no mention of parents for Thomas or for Susannah (Susan) Clem. Help would be appreciated. Thanks, Peg St. John

I have Thomas Nixon in my family tree, but only because he was the husband of Susan, who was my great grand mother's sister. I have not been able to find out who his parents were, but I do have another Thomas Nixon born in Ireland married to Jane who had a son Thomas born abt 1849 at Canaan Mountain, Nova Scotia. Whether this is the same Thomas I do not know. The Thomas who married Susan Clem was born Mar 6 1840 but sometimes these dates are incorrect. I have his death as only before 1909 as he was already deceased when Susan died on Oct 30 1909. She was born Jul 2 1841, the daughter of Benijah and Margaret Clem. Hope this helps.
