My great-grandfather was A.N. Dixon, (b. 1861) in Nicholas County. He married Salina Bell Riffle. My grandmother told me that her grandfather was Thomas Dixon. This is all of the information that I have. If anyone has any ideas or information I would be most grateful. Thanks!

My grandmother Eliza Dixon Cox (most people knew her as Ella) was the daughter of Salina Riffle Dixon and Andrew. I recently started searching my family tree when I came across her name on my grandmother's death certificate. If the records and research are correct Salina Belle Riffle Dixon goes back to the Bratton family. One Bratton was on the Lewis & Clark Expedition and one was a General in the Confederate Army and surrendered his troops at Appomattox Courthouse with General Lee.
