Kathleen, My line of Dixons' are from Louisiana. My great grandfather was Riley John Dixon who was married to Celestine Andress. His father was a Gallos or Gallus Dixon married to either Elnora or Lenora Mathews. Riley was born 2/3/1873. I doubt if there is a connection to your Dixons'. I don't know who Gallos' family were.Riley named one of his sons West. He had 10 children.2 boys and 8 girls.
