Notes

Note 1

DICKSON, Joseph S. - J.S. Dickson {familiarly known as "Uncle Joe"} died at the home of his son, W.A. Dickson, last Monday the 20th inst. in the seventy-first year of his age. The deceased was born and reared in the vicinity of Bentonville, consequently was well informed regarding the early history of the county and could relate many stirring incidents of former times. Uncle Joe was a man of strong convictions and never quibbled about making those convictions known whenever he thought the exigencies of the times demanded it and while many would at times disagree with him they always knew where to place Uncle Joe, for a deception and double-dealing with him was wholly unknown.He was of a kindly disposition and was a good neighbor and citizen. We extend sympathy to the bereaved relatives and friends. [Benton County Democrat - Bentonville, Benton County, Arkansas - December 23, 1909]

Joseph S. Dickson, the subject of this sketch, was born in Benton county, Arkansas June 20th, 1839 and died at his home in Bentonville December 20th, 1909. He professed religion when about sixteen years old and joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at Bentonville in which he lived a consistent member until God took him home to live with Him. In August 1862 when the hearts of men were being stirred by the bugle call to arms and the noise of battle, as we trust they may never again be stirred, he enlisted in the Thirty-fourth Infantry of Arkansas, Confederate Army, and served until the surrender at Fort Smith, 1865. He was a brave and faithful soldier, true to every call that duty imposed and thankful for every promotion that merit conferred. When the war was over he returned to his home at Bentonville and with the help of the few members that remained begun the re-organization of his church June 13th, 1867. He loved his church and attended her services regularly. He was elected and installed a deacon November 23, 1890. He was married in 1868 to Miss Sarah C. Pickens and to them were born six children. She died in 1884 and Brother Dickson afterward married Miss Nancy Gould, who died in 1899. It will be well to state, as a matter of history, that his grandfather, Robert Dickson, who was born near Charlotte, North Carolina September 1st, 1773 and died at Bentonville, Arkansas February 5th, 1849, was one of the founders of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. He abandoned the fatalistic doctrines of the Presbyterian Church for the plan whosoever-will doctrines of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, in which connection he lived and labored as a ruling elder until his death. A lovely window, in memory of his love and devotion to his church, graces the beautiful church at Bentonville. Brother Dickson was a victim of that dreaded disease, consumption. Both of his wives and three children preceded him to the glory world. He leaves one brother, one sister, two sons and one daughter, a host of friends and his church to mourn his loss and to rejoice with him over his coronation. J.S.
