Item of Interest to Dicksons and Joiners (Tombstone Tuesday)

100_1096Little Lillian Dickson’s concrete ledger marker is not pretty to look at.  This daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Dickson (online family trees suggest the initials are for Jefferson Simpson) died the summer of 1909 at the age of just two years.

I’m sharing this tidbit from the local newspaper in case anyone is trying to connect dots from a Dickson to a Joiner.

Vienna News (Georgia) 3 August 1909, pg. 3 :

…Mrs. Leon Joiner of Montezuma, came down and attended the funeral of her little niece, Lillian Dickson at Mt. Olive cemetery Friday afternoon…  [Via South Georgia Historic Newspapers.]
