Born October 2, 1873, in Iowa, Dixon came to Ellensburg with his parents when he was nine years old. He farmed here for many years and operated a livery stable. He moved to Yakima 16 years ago and subsequently went to Seattle. He was married here to Miss Ollie O’Rear in 1903. She died in 1917.

Surviving are his widow, Mrs. Caroline Dixon; a daughter, Mrs. L. P. O’Hare of Seattle; one grandson; a brother, Joe Dixon of Portland; a half brother, Archie Dixon of Vancouver and a half sister, Mrs. William Eadon of Orting, and several nieces and nephews including Mrs. W.

Frank was the son of John Wesley Dixon and Sarah E. Smith. My records say he was born in IL not IA. Frank died May 22, 1942.
