    His surname is spelled Dickson on his marriage license, but a familygenealogy spells it Dixon.

    The child Lula is reported under this name in genealogies as well asrecords.  One Barnett researcher with whom I have worked on thisfamily, reports her name as Lola.  I note that her brother Frank(Francis) had a daughter who was reported in the census as Lolo,possibly meant to be Lola.  In 1900 Lula is still in the household,but has recently married David Lundry.

    On his gravestone, his name is Abraham.  His birth and death yearsdiffer from those reportred by family genealogist Nadene Snyder.Giving only the years, the grave reports birth in 1836, not 1833, anddeath in 1909 instead of 1910.  This may indicate the stone wasprepared at the time of Evaline's death in 1929, and the informationwas given by memory without reference to records.
