Brown Dixon

Obituary of George F. Dixon, Wynne, Arkansas.

G. F. Dixon, the oldest member of Marion Cogbill Camp, No. 1316 U. C. V., was born November 24, 1832, in Alamance County, N. C. and died in Wynne County, Ark., March 6, 1922. He enlisted in Company F, 6th North Carolina Regiment, in 1861; was in the battles around Richmond and at Gettysburg.

Comrade Dixon was a lifelong member of the Presbyterian Church. He was a man of sterling worth, conscientious and honest in all his dealings, charitable, kind and gentle. He was one of the best men I ever knew.

"And now that life's task's are o'er,
Dream, comrade, of battle fields no more,
Safe upon the distant, farther shore,
Greeted by comrades gone before."

[W. P. Brown, Adjutant Marion Cogbill Camp.]
