Our Other Ancestors - graphic

We begin with a Family Tree, centered on my father and mother. This will introduce some of the other surnames important to our presence in California.

The first name we will consider is Captain Robert Arthur Dixon, one of the original settlers in the territory near Vienna, South Dakota. His is a fascinating story and you can read his biography here: Robert Dixon Bio.

The Winchester and Burch families, my mother's ancestors, are covered in a separate document. A few years ago, to accomodate relatives without computers, I produced an Adobe™ PDF document you can download by accessing the Winchesters of Wilmington. The file is fairly large, so download may take a while. Use your back button to return to this page.

Information on siblings John Walker and Marion "Minnie" McLaren will appear here.
