It does sound like my Grandfather, as that is his death date listed.
I just found on find a grave a picture of his (and my great grandmother's) gravestone, and it lists his birth year as 1879.
Edith M (Dixon) Sperry is my Maternal Grandmother.
I'm really trying to find out more infomation about my Great Great Grandmother, James Dixon's Mother.
Family legend has it, that she was a full blooded American Indian. If so, I'm trying to find out what tribe she belong to, and if her name had been put in one of the govt registries back then.
When my Grandmother was alive she swore that Her Grandmother, Margaretha Dixon was born in MO, but other records I've seen say Kansas.
