My GGGreat grandfather, Joseph DiXON was married first to Susanna SENTZ. They lived in Columbiana Co. Ohio where my GGrandfather Robert Stewart DiXON was born. Susanna Sentz died about 1842, unable to locate her burial place. & Joseph remarried to Susanna Perky in 1843., They had children Lydia, (born in Lafayette..now Pulaski, Ohio) John A.(unable to locate), David P., & Mary. They lived in Williams Co OH. and Steuben Co Indiana. Susanna Perky died between 1860-70.

Joseph & 3rd wife Magdalena Ritchie Dixon (married in 1871, no issue),ran a boarding house on Smith St. in Hicksville in the 1880's. Joseph was a noted Gunsmith and is listed in the book "Gunsmiths of Ohio". I was privileged to visit his gravesite in 2006. He is buried in the "OLD" Forest Home Cemetery on the left side of the road as you are leaving hicksville. (cemetery was also known as "Hicksville cemetery" Thanks to the caretaker who helped me look him up in his old 1880's cemetery book. He has no headstone at this time. I plan to purchase one for him one day. ANYONE INTERESTED IN CONTRIBUTING ? By Carol Sorden Watson
