I have hit a dead end. Charles Nixon born 1810 in Greenwich Township, Warren, New Jersey USA (I think) died 1891 Susanville, Lassen, California USA What I know is he is in the 1830 census at a boardinghouse in where we think he was born. He lists his birth in New Jersey on all census and 1810 in most 1811 in one. I do not know where he was born or when. I do not know who his parents were either. He married Catharine Celesia Hanchett 19 Aug 1832 and in 1850 he left for the gold rush in California. They divorced in 1863. They had 3 children Luther Calvin, Charles H, and Elizabeth Mauretta. Wife and kids stayed in Ohio and he became first merchant in Susanville with first store. Any help on his parents and birth would help.
