Obituary submitted by

JOHN WESLEY DIXON

Another member of our ‘little’ Grand Army post answered the final call Friday [June 8, 1917] when J. W. Dixon died. Just a week after his 88th birthday, which occurred on Memorial Day, he passed quietly away after an illness of only a few hours. He death was attributed to old age, as he had been in his usual health. He served in the Civil War in the 34th Iowa Infantry. He had lived in Kittitas Valley since 1883. He had been a member of David Ford Post since its organization and was held in high esteem by his comrades as well as by many neighbors and friends. He is survived by a wife and five sons and one daughter.

John was the son of Elijah Dixon and Sarah Cadwallader. He married Sarah Smith on November 10, 1853 in Fulton Co., Illinois and Ida Cornwall on December 28, 1891 in Ellensburg, WA. He is buried in the IOOF Cemetery.
