Mr. Dixson has been in feeble health upward of two years, being confined to the house much of the time. Previous to that period Mr. Dixson was one of the most prominent figures in local business circles. He was for a long time, up to a decade or two ago, associated with the banking concern of R. L. Ingersoll & Company, serving as cashier, but the bank building was destroyed in the big fire of 1881, which laid in ashes the business section. He finally as the surviving partner, he closed up the business of the concern more than fifteen years ago and was for a long time engaged in the real estate business, but retired from active business pursuits some years ago. William Brainard Dixson was born in Paris, Oneida County, August 27, 1833, and was therefore nearly eighty years old. He was educated in the common schools and at Genesee Wesleyan University.

Mr. Dixson up to a few years ago had served as village treasurer for twenty-five consecutive years. At Unadilla in 1867 Mr. Dixson married Miss Catharine B. Clark, by whom he is survived.
