Photo of Wesley-Dixon Cemetery
Fatima [Oliver] Dickson/Dixon (married surname appeared to have been changed from 1850 to 1860 according to census data - in all probability the enumerator spelled names phonetically in those times) donated the land for the church about 10 months after the passing of her mother-in-law, Sarah J. Dickson, in Jan 1891. On the 23rd of Oct 1891, Fatima sold a little over an acre, for the sum of $10.00, to three trustees of the Methodist Episcopal Church organization [Wayne Co., MO Deed Bk 12, pg 39] with the understanding that only family members to the third degree could be buried in that original Dixon Cemetery section.
