Biographical history

The Dixon family originally settled in Quebec before moving to Manitoba. Margaret Ann Purcell and George William Dixon were both born in Belfast, Ireland in 1858 and 1851, respectively. Their families immigrated to Kildar in Joliette County, Quebec. Margaret and George got married in 1872. They moved to Rounthwaite, Manitoba, where they raised a family of 13 children. Most of their descendants still live in the Brandon area. Mary Baker is the grand-daughter of George William Dixon and is married to James Victor Baker.

Custodial history

The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Mary Helen Baker of Brandon, Manitoba in December 1995. The collection was separated into MSS SC 148 and PC 130 upon accession. PC 130 contains photographs from the early twentieth century.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of genealogical information about the Dixon and Baker families between 1851 and 1963. It also contains land title deeds, farm receipts, and photographs of agricultural scenes in the early twentieth century.
