Henderson County, Kentukcy Biography
Wynn Glass DIXON is a young farmer, living upon, and operating one hundred and fifty acres of fine farming land, which he owns, and upon which he successfully grows tobacco, wheat, corn and hay. He is a gentleman rather more professional looking in appearance than is usually the case with planters and cultivators of the soil. He comes from a family, both sides representing a worthy professional lineage in several instances, in fact, unsurpassed for legal learning and governmental polity. He is a son of Charles Cornelius DIXON, who was a highly influential and worthy citizen of this county, and Isabella Pauline CLAY, a second cousin of Henry CLAY.
Mr. DIXON was born in Henderson County, 24 Mar 1855, and received his primary education from the county schools. Subsequent to that time, he matriculated at one of the best educational institutions at Mt. Vernon, Indiana. At this place he graduated, and since that time, has been engaged in farming.
On 17 Dec 1878 he was married to Miss Mattie RANDOLPH of this county, and two children, Ruby Dixon and Roger Sherman, now bless that happy union.
In politics, Wynn is a Democrat; in religious opinion and training, a Cumberland Presbyterian. He has never joined a Lodge of any kind, but stays quietly at his home, surrounded by a loving household, where the moonlight of connubial felicity shines upon him, without going elsewhere to seek pleasures in the society of men. Wynns father, Charles died in the year 1881, aged sixty-two years.
