Summary of a 93 page approved Southern Claim

Annie E. Dixon widow of Maj. Henry J. Dixon

He was the only man in Marshall, Fauquier Co., VA. To vote for Lincoln.

Remarks: In 1865 he was shot and killed in Alexandria, VA., by a Confederate and we have no doubt that political hate was the cause. Leaving a widow and eleven children.

Witness:

Mary A. Lake wife of Richard E. Lake, lives in Rectortown, Fauquier Co.,VA.

Samuel H. Hally

John T. Ballard

Gen. U. S. Grant, a letter

John C. Underwood, U. S. Dist. Judge, writes, Major Dixon had from the beginning been a bold and outspoken Union man……..He was mustered out of service as a paymaster a few weeks before his death.

His Excellency Andrew Johnson, President, writes, I was in command in that area. He sought protection from me, against the persecutions of their vindictive neighbors.
