This Thomas Mix is not the father of Thomas Mix b. 1709 who married Ruth Manross. Instead, this Thmas Mix is the son of Thomas Mix and Rebecca Turner. So I am going to disconnect him from here as the father, and move him over to those parents instead.

Thomas is 12 degrees from George Bush, 16 degrees from Rick San Soucie and 15 degrees from Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
