Griffith or Nix Family Photos

I believe the young couple in the above photos are Jordon Omer Griffith and Mabel B. Nix.  The older couple may be Jordon’s parents, George Poynor Griffith and Nancy Caroline “Tommie” Davis.  If anyone can identify these people, please email me (email address on the right) or leave a comment below.

UPDATE: I have heard from a Griffith family member and she does not think the older couple and lady are from the Griffith line, so they might be from the Nix line.
