Death: Apr. 29, 1932
Mississippi, USA

Byron was born to Tullius Cicero (TC) Dixon and Olivia C. David. In 1880 he was in Pass Christian, MS with his family and then in 1900 he was in Galveston Texas and his parents and some siblings were in Austin. Byron was 27, single and working as a street car conductor, a line of work he would continue. Shortly thereafter Byron married Marie/Mary "Nona" Ernestine Cornibe, and moved to Los Angeles, CA where he was a motor man for the Pacific Electric Railroad. His parents and sisters had moved there as well. Byron and Marie had a daughter born in 1908 named Corrine. He stayed with the railroad and became an instructor. By 1920 he and his family had moved to Kansas City, MO. Marie died in January of 1920 only days after the 1920 census. By 1930 Byron was married to Mary Abigail Lay, the widow of James Harry Tramill who died in 1918. She was the informant for Byron's death certificate. When she died Mary was buried in the cemetery with her first husband and not with Byron who was buried in the same cemetery as his first wife.
Byron's daughter Corrine married Lewis J. Bryan in 1927 and they had two children: Parke Evan Bryan (1928-2003) and Byron Ross Bryan (1929-1997).
