** It was reported that he was a Civil War veteran but records to date have not been located to determine the company in which he served.

*** The reference material used had two listings for the name William Dixon; therefore both were listed in this report.

NOTE: The United Brothers of Friendship Lodge was organized in Louisville, Kentucky in 1861 by men of African descent - some slave, some free. Lodges thereafter were organized throughout the United States, Canada and the West Indies.
