    • Biographic etchings of ministers and laymen of the Georgia conferences / by W. J. Scott
      ROBERT WARREN DIXON.
      Robert Warren Dixon was admitted into the conference in December, 1856. His first appointment was the Hamilton circuit, and his last the Thomasville district. During the intervening years he served several of the best circuits and stations, and was very highly esteemed, both in the pulpit and pastorate.

      While he was not eminent for intellectual gifts, he was an all-round man whose usefulness exceeded a large number who were more widely known and more liberally applauded. He was studious in his habits, and there is little doubt but that too much reading by lamplight brought the eye trouble that ended in his ministerial disqualification.

      ------ page 59 ------
      My association with Bro. Dixon was limited, but I saw and heard enough of him to admire his excellent character.
      Col. Herbert Felder, of Cuthbert, has made this record of him which deserves to be perpetuated. This distinguished jurist characterizes him in the words following: "A man of study and research in all that pertains to true, Christian philosophy, of masterly intellect and commanding eloquence, mature judgment and mild but unyielding decision. His public and private life without reproach and in harmony with his sacred office."
