Died at his residence in Bentonville, Ark., April 26th, 1905, John E. Dickson in the 68th year of his age. The deceased was born near Bentonville, Feb. 3, 1837. His parents were among the first settlers of Benton county and his whole life was spent in this community. He witnessed the growth and development of the country from his childhood until his death. The Dicksons, Woods, Langstons, Jacksons, Walkers, Blacks and others who first settled this country, constituted a community which for civil, social and religious qualifications was seldom if ever equaled. In early life he accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and united with the Bentonville congregation of C.P. Church. When a young man he felt impressed to preach the gospel and placed himself under the care of the Washington Presbytery, acquiring in the meanwhile a fair English education. But for some reason, satisfactory to himself, he asked the Presbytery to release him from its care and permit him to go on in Christian work as a lay member which request was granted. For many years afterward he was an active and efficient worker in the church. June 21st, 1870 he was married to Miss Louiza Grammer. To them were born three children, a son, Robert E. Dickson, and two daughters, Mrs. Chas. Ames and Mrs. J.M. Macklin, all of whom were present to nurse and comfort their loving father until the end. For several of the closing years of his life Bro. Dickson's health was not such as to permit him to attend and enjoy the public services of the sanctuary, still his faith and hope was in the Lord Jesus Christ and in this faith and hope he died; fully resigned to the will of God, ready and willing to go. May the blessed Holy Spirit comfort the sorrowing hearts of his beloved companion and dear children and friends. P. Carnahan.
