" ... At Hillsboro, Ore., occurred the marriage of C. P. Dix and Dora Messinger, born in Yamhill County and a daughter of Jacob A. and Anna (Brown) Messinger, pioneer farmers of that county and natives of Indiana and Iowa respectively, who crossed the plains in 1861, with ox teams to Oregon. They settled in Washington County, where they eventually died, the father in 1906 and the mother in 1901. Mrs. Dix is the youngest of seven children and was reared and educated in Oregon. Seven children have come to brighten the home of Mr. and Mrs. Dix: Ralph A., of Chico; Myrtle, Mrs. Henry Butler, of Monterey; Mabel, Mrs. C.H. Eckles, of Chico; Bethel, wife of Roy Hilton, a partner in the C.P. Dix Lumber Company; Florence, Mrs. T.L. Skelly, of Chico; and Cecil V., and Doris Virginia, at home. Mr. Dix is an Ancient Odd Fellow. Mr. and Mrs. Dix belong to the Christian Church of Chico and for many years have taken a prominent part in church work; Mr. Dix as a deacon and ruling elder and a teacher in the Sunday School. Mrs. Dix is a Prohibitionist and a member of the Cohasset Auxiliary of Chico Chapter of the Red Cross. Mr. Dix is a stanch Republican and a protectionist."
