I'm not sure, Roger. My ggrandfather was Riley Dixon born in Louisiana in 1873. If his parents were married, probably from 1873 to 1880. I'm only guessing because Riley wasn't raised by his parents. We assume that he was sent to live with his mother's family of Mathews in 1880. We don't know what happened to his parents. Someone suggested the name of Riley's father might be Callum Dixon because the writing of the name was hard to makeout the letters from that time period. Riley's mother was either Elnora Mathews or Lenora, because one of his daughters was named Lenora, but Elnora was the name on his baptismal record. Since Riley couldn't write, whoever wrote out the record could have mistakenly put down Elnora Mathews instead of Lenora. I don't know. It's so frustrating.
