Dixon(not Dickson) Lewis Blair is the son of William L. Blair, Esq. and Sarah Elizabeth "Betsey" (Bishop) Blair. He 1st married Bettie Isabella Turner on 23 Sep 1880 in Barbour Co., AL. She died from childbirth complications with their only child on 05 Aug 1881 in Barbour Co. Dixon then 2nd married her sister, Mary Ingalls Carleton Turner on 06 Apr 1882 in White Oak Springs, Barbour Co. They had at least 6 children:

Wesley Alexander Blair b. 08 Mar 1884
Bettie Blair b. 22 Feb 1886
William Martin Blair b. 25 Aug 1888
Lottie Mae Blair b. 29 Jun 1891
Daisy Lee Blair b. 20 Mar 1893
Mary Emma Blair b. 11 Apr 1897

"Barbour Co., AL Tombstone Inscriptions, Vol. 1", Pg. 28 shows his name spelled "Dickson" and his death date as "26 June 1890". However, the spelling "Dixon" is a family name (he has a nephew, Dixon L. Blair b. 26 Dec 1877, with that same spelling who is also buried in this cemetery) and he had at least 3 children born more than 9 mos. AFTER 26 June 1890!
