Ellen Dixon searching for her son John Dixon

A Long Lost Son.
Any one knowing of the whereabouts of
John Dixon, colored, will confer a favor by
communicating with his mother, Ellen
Dixon, care of NATIONAL REPUBLICAN. The
following is from a memorandum made by
Mr. John T. Bloxham during the late war:
On Thursday, Aug. 8, 1861, in the evening,
about 4 o'clock; my negro boy, John Dixon,
was carried off by some one of 32d California
regiment, New York. The boy is dark copper
color, and is supposed to be about 5 feet 6 or 8
inches in height, 19 years old. This regiment
is commanded by Col. Madison. Sept. 10,
Henry Morris, the colonel's cook, told me that
Lieut. Dimont said he left the said negro boy
with Lieut. Col. Pinto in New York. This
said Pinto belonged to the same regiment.
JOHN T. BLOXHAM.
FAIRFAX CGUNTY, VA., Oct. 11, 1887.
Ellen, tell Henry I would like to see him.
