Chapter 13

The Great Grandchildren Keep the Family Growing

(1895–2010)

Tracing the lives of each of the twenty-three grandchildren of William George Nixey and Charlotte née Pitt inevitably led to my finding numerous great grandchildren, in fact, I’ve found twenty-two so far. Out of all of them, only Charles Bridges Stevens died during childhood. Many of them have interesting tales to tell in their own right. In time, this chapter will be extended as their individual stories are added. It’s very interesting to note that none of the grandchildren nor great grandchildren were given Nixey as a second or third forename, but other family surnames were sometimes included.
