(Q178) 15 Mar 1998 - Eugene Mix
Surnames: MIX, WILSON
Charles Theodore MIX, d. Jun 18, 1924 in Rinard, Wayne Co., IL.
We believe he is our gg-grandfather. He is buried in Elmwood Cemetery
in Clay Co., IL. We believe he had a son, Edwin, b. 1871?, and a
grandson, Austin, b. 1894. His wife was Ada
The person who notified authorities of his death was W.W. MIX.
We would like to find someone who could tell us if these people are tied
together as we believe they are. We also would like to find other
relatives in this line. Our grandfather, Austin, was killed in WWI
and we have no one left who can tell us if this lineage is as we suspect
from our research. At this time, we have no idea if there are other
children or who W.W. MIX is. Any help is appreciated.
