William G. Nixon III, 88, of Greenwich passed away peacefully on Tuesday evening, March 1, 2011, at The Cumberland Manor in Hopewell Township.


He was a former Bridgeton historian, an avid supporter of the Cumberland County Historical Society and was very active in the Warren E. Lummis Genealogical and Research Library in Greenwich. In addition, he was a vital member of the Bridgeton Antiquarian League. He served on their board of directors for nearly ten years, as a president for several terms. It was often said that with his voluminous knowledge of Bridgeton history, he certainly could have written a book. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church.
