HAMPTON S. DIXON, a representative citizen, and leading farmer of Douglas Township, carries on a farm on section 6. His birth occurred in Chester Township, Meigs County, Ohio, January 23, 1831. He is a son of Thomas and Mary (Northrup) Dixon. His paternal grandfather emigrated from Virginia to Meigs County, Ohio, where the father was born and reared. The mother's father, when thirteen years old, while playing at Point Pleasant, on the Ohio River, was captured by the Indians, who still frequented that part of the country, and was held captive by them for eight years. He learned their language and habits during that time, and it was with difficulty that he was induced to leave them. The mother of our subject was born in Gallia County, Ohio.

After the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Dixon, they lived for some five years in Meigs County, but in 1835 emigrated by way of the Ohio, Mississippi and Illinois Rivers to La Salle County, Ill. By trade Mr. Dixon was a boat-builder until coming to Illinois, after which he carried on farming. Politically, he was a Whig and later a Republican. Both he and his wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Their deaths occurred within twenty-four hours of each other in Oskaloosa, Iowa, in March, 1880, and they were buried in the same grave in, La Salle County, Ill. They were much respected and esteemed throughout the section in which they dwelt. Of their family of five sons and three daughters, only three are now living: Francis Marion, a member of Company H, Twentieth Illinois Infantry, was killed in the battle of Shiloh. Charles H., who was in the same company and regiment, served thirty-eight months and then re-enlisted in Hancock's Veteran Corps. He died of smallpox at Washington, D. C. The living members of the family are Hampton S.; James W., a farmer of Iroquois County; and George W., a farmer of North Dakota.
