Ruth McCall Dixson, 18471924 (aged 77 years)

Birth May 5, 1847 39 36
Death of a paternal grandfatherSimon Dixson
before 1849 (aged 1 year)

Death of a sisterSarah Dixson
before 1850 (aged 2 years)
Note: Sarah does not show up in the 1850 census in Jefferson Twship, Logan, Ohio, when she would have been 15, but her older siblings do. And she does not go with them to Iowa in 1855. Therefore, it is suspected she died before that time, as it was unusual for Quakers to marry so young.
