Nix Family Cemetery

The NIX cemetery is located on Bronson Field at the end of runway six. Go south off Hwy 98,about a quarter mile west of the stop light at Bauer Rd.

Late in 1990’s it became a Recreation Center, and has a toll gate as its entrance. One member of the party must present a military ID in order to get in. THIS IS IMPORTANT! The cemetery is way down on the south side of the field, out of sight, and would take a guide to find it. It is in the woods, and the man at the gate said he could direct persons to the area REMEMBER,the military I.D., plus $1.50

(P.S. It was very hard to find, and you may have to abandon your car and walk a ways.)

In April 2002, Evan Strohl and Jason Shiplett visited the cemetery and have submitted this listing of names on marked stones in the cemetery.

Please send corrections or additions to Evan Strohl, WFGS Chairman, Cemetery Committee, or the Webmaster. All sources will be credited.
