CHILDREN Mary Laffin had before marrying Levi Dickson after Levi's first wife Sarah died Mary came to keep house and Levi was so good to Marys 4 illigetimate children they took his name Dickson but spelled it differently as Dixon. It seems that Mary coming upset Levi's first wifes sarah's children and they all left the home These children are:

4. Charles Dixon Mar. 1899-Aug. 21, 1957

5. Oliver Dixon married Ada Clark


I cannot find any info on Wilhelmina Dickson and her sister Minne G. Dickson..........who did they marry? I also have a reference to a daughter of Levi & Sarah as Grace Fletcher Dickson 1877-1892 I think this may have come from a headstone but i have not verified this yet. I have also found a Levi Dixon living with a daughter Mable Dixon in the 1901 census but other than that reference I cannot verify her.

Any help would be appreciated
