I'm searching for the family of Hobart Dixon, Brother to Lon Dixon of Oklahoma and Half Brother to Robert Luther Dixon of TN. Hobarts father's name was John Thomas "Tom' Dixon born 03-21-1865 in Greene County TN. I don't know the name of Hobart's mother. Hobart left TN and according to family records moved to Badin, NC. I would love to talk to anyone who could help me.
