June 25, 1938 Independence MO
To: Senator George Dixon
In tracing my family history I wrote to Dixon Illinois to find if the city of Dixon had been named after an early pioneer by the name of Dixon.
Mr. Wm Slothower, the mayor of Dixton gave me your name as reference that you were the great grandson of John Dixon, the founder of Dixon, Ill.
I am sending you a pedigree chart of my family ancestors. In looking over this chart I thought you could tell if any of these people are your relatives.
I am trying to find out who Ebenezer Dixon's father and mother were and if his father served in the Rev. War.
I do not know what county in Virginia Ebenezer Dixon came from to Missouri and have no records that his father came to MO.
Ebenezer and Harriett Dixon are both buried in Jackson Co. Missouri on their old home place which is still in the family.
They had the following children:
Matthew Dixon Eliza Dixon
John Dixon Betty Dixon
William Dixon Henrietta Dixon
James K. Polk Dixon Ann Dixon
Matthew was the oldest son and was senator of California years ago.
Could you give me the military service records and pension records also the family history of ISAAC DRAKE, my great-great-grandfather of the NJ Militia Rev. War or Md. militia.
He died in Jackson Co., MO. I would appreciate very much any information that you could send me and thanking you very much.
