Birth: May 31, 1829
Fulton County
Illinois, USA
Death: Jun. 8, 1917
Ellensburg
Kittitas County
Washington, USA

John died from a cerebral hemorrhage with a contributory factor of arterio-sclerosis.

OBIT:

Another member of our ‘little' Grand Army post answered the final call Friday [June 8, 1917] when J. W. Dixon died. Just a week after his 88th birthday, which occurred on Memorial Day, he passed quietly away after an illness of only a few hours. His death was attributed to old age, as he had been in his usual health. He served in the Civil War in the 34th Iowa Infantry. He had lived in Kittitas Valley since 1883. He had been a member of David Ford Post since its organization and was held in high esteem by his comrades as well as by many neighbors and friends. He is survived by a wife and five sons and one daughter.
