"... Judge George W. Dickson, a native of Miami County, Ohio, born February 1, 1820. His father, William Dickson, was born in South Carolina, June 3, 1798, and his mother, Mary (Sinks) Dickson, was born in North Carolina, in September, 1800. George W. Dickson spent his youth in his native county, and is a self-made and self-educated man, having become the latter almost entirely after reaching manhood. He was married in Darke County, at Greenville, near Old Treaty, where Gens. Wayne and Harrison treated with the Indians. Elizabeth Delk became his wife February 14, 1839. She was the daughter of Ethelred Delk, a soldier in the war of 1812. Her birthplace was in Preble County, Ohio, where she was born May 4, 1821, and she was reared in that and Darke County, Ohio. Directly after their marriage they moved to Randolph County, Indiana, and eighteen months later, in November, 1840, came to Missouri, crossing the Mississippi River on the day Harrison was elected President. They spent one year in Grundy County, and about the same length of time in Livingston County. In the fall of 1843, they moved to Linn County (now Sullivan), and in 1848 came from there to Putnam County (then Dodge), locating in Jackson Township. Previous to this time Mr. Dickson had served as treasurer of the county, and after coming to Putnam County, he served sixteen years in succession as justice of the peace. He was the second county judge of the county. During the war, in 1862, he was appointed probate judge, and served two years in that capacity. He is now identified with the Greenback party, although formerly he was a Democrat, and during the war was identified with and worked for the Republicans. He located upon his present place in April, 1853, entering 120 acres of land. He now owns 100 acres, forty in timber land and the remainder in meadow and plow. He has raised a family of eight children, six of whom are living: William Dickson, married and in Wilson Township; Henry C., married and living in Jackson Township; Elizabeth E., widow of E. Hodson, of Smith County, Kas.; Ann V., wife of Joseph F. Coppock, of Kansas. Those deceased are Alvina, wife of James L. Johnson, died April 12, 1863, leaving two children, and Charles, who died in September, 1862, in Helena, Ark. He was a soldier in the late war, and served in the Seventh Missouri Cavalry. Judge Dickson became a mason in 1863, and belongs to the Unionville, Missouri lodge. He is engaged in the nursery business, in which he embarked about 1876, and now has about 15,000 trees of different kinds of fruit. His nursery is known as the 'Star Nursery.'"

"On Sept. 8, 1862, he was united in marriage to Miss Mary J. Boss, and to them thirteen children were born, namely: An infant daughter and son, Joseph, preceded the father in death; the living children being Mrs. I. V. Casteel of Lemonville, MO; John H.

"Uncle William Dickson served about three and one half years in the Missouri militia during the civil war and was honorably discharged for disability. He was quite proud of his record in this conflict and was one of the members who never drew a pension for the services he so earnestly gave to his country.
"Until a few months ago he had been in his usual rugged and vigorous health, but when the break came his vitality was soon sapped and the end was considered very near. All that medical skill and tender care could do could not stay the hand of death, and on Sunday afternoon the spirit took its flight to the unknown world, leaving eleven children and numerous grand children and other relatives to mourn its departure.
"Interment was made in Bethany cemetery on Monday afternoon, the services being conducted by Rev. J. A. Newton in the presence of a large number of friends and relatives.
"The sympathy of all is extended to the bereaved children and relatives in their hour of sorrow"
