Family History

During a recent visit to our home, my uncle Dick Dixon introduced me to a fascinating book, “History of Manard – The Pioneer Town That Used To Be,” compiled by Clifton R. Dixon, my father’s late cousin.  This book provides interesting details about a small farming community in Camas County, Idaho, where my father was born.

The book is no longer in print, so Uncle Dick allowed me to scan the book.  The scanned .pdf file is available for download on this blog site.

I extracted from the book a short article, written by Uncle Dick, “The James H. Dixon Family in Manard, Idaho,” that provides a overview of the Dixon family and the farm where they lived from 1916 to 1933. 

It was wonderful to read about the great family that established such a great heritage for me.

The photo is of Grandpa and Grandma, James Henry Dixon and Sarah Elizabeth Hurd Dixon when they were married in 1904.

As I read this verse, my mind is drawn repeatedly to the phrase, “Perfect Brightness of Hope.” For me, at this time in my life, that is where I my focus. I must seek this bright hope that is founded on the Savior, Jesus Christ.

Our freedom to choose between eternal life or spiritual death is indeed a reason to “cheer up.”

This gift of freedom to choose was assured by the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, but each of us must choose which path to take and act accordingly.
