Horace Dixon’s nephew Winfred Dixson says “very old records” show his uncle was born on March 18, but the only copy of a birth certificate the family could find shows his birthday as March 15. Horace plans to celebrate the earlier date.
The Barnesville centenarian says he is the only one in the family who spells his name “Dixon” instead of “Dixson,” but he doesn’t remember exactly why. He and his wife Liz keep their Grove Street home with the help of nephews and nieces. When he can he goes to church at Greater Spring Hill Baptist Church in Milner.
