to you, i hope you found peace with your passing, some of the books you wrote, with historical respect, should have been left unwritten.

In 1968 Mr. Raymond Allen Cook penned a biography that was published John F. Blair of Winston-Salem, NC, entitled "Fire from the Flint, The Amazing Careers of Thomas Dixon". The book jacket hints at the life of this intriguing man: "Five million people heard him lecture; millons more bought his books; countless millions more saw the product of his creative talent when they paid an unheard-of two dollars a ticket to see "The Birth of A Nation". He has been called a genius of unparalleled brilliance and a racist whose works should have died a'borning. He made two fortunes and he died almost penniless. At the height of his career his name was in every newspaper in the land; today he is almost unknown. Thomas Dixon was truly one of the most amazing men this country has ever produced..."

Thomas Dixon's friends had him transported to his hometown for burial, and four years later, urged on by Lee B. Weathers, donations were made to erect a tombstone. His 2nd wife, Madelyn is buried with him.

Rest in peace dear cousin...

Rev. Dixon: Even though I don't know how we're related, we are. It's distant but I can't forget my kin people. So this flower is for you in your honor. Rest in peace.
