Joseph Nix was the son of John Grancer & Sarah Winters Nix (1767-1835), the daughter of Moses & Elizabeth Head Winters of Franklin County, GA. Joseph was the oldest of their 9 children, and he married Martha Bishop, daughter of Thomas Bishop, in 1802 in Georgia. Joseph was a member of the Royal Order of Grand Masons. Joseph was famous, or rather infamous, for his notorious land deals that kept him in trouble most of his life. After Martha died in 1845, his health declined, he went blind, and lived with his sister Lucinda until his death in Habersham County, GA, in 1855. Some of his children are buried in Freeman-Cox Cemetery, & others are still missing. .

However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Joseph:
